How are you with dark humor about something that's close to you?

For example: I'm suicidal (I think it's obvious) but I enjoy suicide related jokes.

I also enjoy Jew jokes despite being Jewish.

What about you?

I joke about suicide and depression as well, and enjoy jokes/humour related to them. I actually find it easier joking about the things that are closer to home.

I joke about the nazis and the potato famine a lot.
I'm ethnically German & Irish.
I love Christine

"If one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours. He will put some things behind, will pass an invisible boundary; In proportion as he simplifies his life, the laws of the universe will appear less complex, and solitude will not be solitude, nor poverty poverty, nor weakness weakness." - Henry David Thoreau

It just shows you can remove yourself from it and look at it from another angle. Reflection can make anything funny.

I love racists black jokes, with me being being black. Not much can get to me and my friends we have pretty tough skin.

Dark humour's the best.

Lately I'm more entertained with anti jokes

Wanna hear a joke?

Say there's a blind man, he somehow comes to facebook and someone messages him.
He accidently clicks on the message and for the other person it shows: Seen.
But he's fucking blind! Hahahahaha! Haha! Ha... ha... I'm not funny am I? :(


Here's an anti joke version:

I joke about cancer, suicide, depression, etc. Can relate to them all. I guess that's how I deal with it like most scums do.


War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse.

I don't really care. If somehow I'm not in the mood for it then I just leave.

It depends why its been said over whats been said. If someone is joking in bad taste to insult or just to make light of something serious to others for the sake of been a unsympathetic dick stroke like a high school bully expecting others to pat you on the back for been mean you are literally really immature but if someone jokes from a true light hearted place then there's nothing wrong with that

I enjoy jokes regarding the holocaust despite being German and having been to an actual concentration
camp.

On the inside though, there is a part of me that cringes and is ashamed of my laughter.

I laugh at pretty much anything. Rape, which I happen to be a victim of (I probably shouldn't be saying this on the internet for all the world to know, but whatever), dead baby jokes, cancer, (both of which happened to family), ect.
We all have our own ways of dealing with stuff and I suppose ours is laughter.

I try to play it off and laugh, while either fuming or crying on the inside

Humor is a common way of dealing with things. It's okay that you can tell jokes about rape. I know a guy whose father died of cancer and makes jokes about it.

Of course, there's more to his joke than "my father's dead". Jokes that just rely on a dark subject matter are terrible.

I make alot of suicide jokes despite having been suicidal for a good two year period of my life. My family also make a ton of cancer jokes despite my mother having had breast cancer.

I'm fine with absolutely anything, very few things offend me. In fact I don't really know what does offend me.
Why are we still here? Just to suffer? Every night, I can feel my leg... and my arm... even my fingers. The body I've lost... the comrades I've lost... won't stop hurting... It's like they're all still there. You feel it, too, don't you? I'm gonna make them give back our past."
