It is the nature of humor that not everyone will find everything funny. Some people might even get offended by some jokes. But why take anything seriously in a forum called the "Offbeat Area?"
Its more fun to share a drink with Hawkeye Pierce and BJ Hunnicut than Charles Emerson Winchester III.
Anaesthetist's Hymn It's LOL funny if you work in the OR environment, but good nonetheless.
1. the use of irony, sarcasm, ridicule, or the like, in exposing, denouncing, or deriding vice, folly, etc.
2. a literary composition, in verse or prose, in which human folly and vice are held up to scorn, derision, or ridicule.
3. a literary genre comprising such compositions.
That identical post has been around for several years and, on other forums, blocked - it has no redeeming value and, as I pointed out, those figures have never been posted by HHS regarding deaths due to doctors as was claimed in the post and is blatantly BS.
However, it clearly has the approval of the administration here and I think I am not compatible with that kind of thinking and will withdraw from this forum. I am more interested in sharing information about technical stuff and most of the threads I see look more social, at best, and most don't give formal approval of this kind of "satire" nonsense.
OJ doesn't get it, does he?
The satire was about gun control, not doctors.
Too bad...it's never nice to lose a correspondent. Especially one who likes scrub jays and squirrels.
If this is true, well done!
Well, I'm sorry to see OJ go over something so petty, but perhaps the answer for a lack of a sense of humor is to avoid subforums that are primarily about humor. I've seen this same post on several other forums, and never saw it locked, nor have I seen anyone get all offended by it.
