you guys are taking this way too serious. These were funny as hell, except for the last one. Nathan is the type to take advantage of teenagers because he can’t get real women. Ben’s was weird, but I think he was going for a mexican joke rather than a pedophile joke.
couldn’t have said it better. paedophile jokes are lazy humour with pretty crappy repercussions, from discouraging role models to sanctifying ‘funny’ (read: disturbing and potentially dangerous) behaviour, even if it is as a joke.
Little Johnny keeps pestering the clown to show him a magic trick. The clown finally gives in and agrees. He tells Johnny to pull his pants down and bend over.
“Okay, can you feel my thumb in your butt?” the clown asks Johnny.
“Yes,” says Johnny.
“Tadaaaa!” yells the clown, waving his thumbs in Johnny’s face.
Soup, reading your comments never fails to make me want to rofl literally. I only can fathom to create to quick witty remarks. as for the posts, I agree with most, first one was the funniest, then as it goes on..it just gets more disturbing than lol-worthy. also Pablo needs to meet Soup’s clown..then be shot.
Ugh, you guys, Pablo’s joke is obviously his way of combating racism. His roommate assumed that just because he was from Peru, he was a pedophile. Instead of arguing with her and starting a long face book fight, he turned the whole thing into a joke. If more of us fought hatred this way with love and humor instead of more hatred, the world would probably be a better place. Pablo for the win.
And Pedophile jokes have become more popular since family guy. This is why I don’t like them as a general rule. But Pablo is clearly not a pedophile, nor is Aaron for that matter. I mean, do you really think he was having some kind of underage, pedophile orgy inside a zap zone? If you do, I have some waterfront property in Florida I would love to talk to you about.
Why are you taking this so seriously…we all know these are harmless jokes, and as someone that posts on every entry I am sure you know that there are a lot of off color jokes on this site. I think pedos need to be thrown into an active volcano and suffer the worst pain they ever experienced in their lives..but I can still laugh at harmless jokes.
Case in point, on the post about Peru, you guys know that is their custom and culture. They know nothing different so in their eyes they aren’t doing anything wrong.
I stil think it is one of the worst things you can possibly do to someone. Keep it on a light note here tho!
I think that Word is disconsolate towards “Paedophile” jokes in light of the intention and taste behind them. In essence they are generally cheap variations of humour that are directed to incite harm on some level.
I personally believe its just comes down to ignorance.
Ariesdragon makes a very good point in stating that Pablo used “paedophile” humour to combat rascism, that to me is the difference put on a plate for everyone to see.
Are we seeing some sort of awakening from Malteaser?
I have vehemently followed his road to stardom, and of late it appears that he has been (congruently or incongruently) lurching from his “lol” based comatose state with subtle, but not to be underestimated, variation.
I’ve read your posts on here, but I just don’t get all of the angst toward these jokes. a few are lame, but most are funny.
And seriously, is no one going to point out how dumb ariesdragon’s post is? Racism? It was a joke, towards a friend. I make fun of my puero rican friends all the time, and they give me shit as well for being white. Keep in mind that these two guys were in my wedding, so there is racism there. Pussyfooting around race will never get us anywhere.
And Florida has a ton of beach front property. I think the joke you were referring involves Arizona.
How do you know Adam and Eve weren’t black?
Have you ever tried to take a rib from a black man!
See, I can make jokes too. And you would know it’s a joke. But, if Steve was joking, why would he take the time to look up the actual statistics on the youngest pregnancies in the world. Maybe it was a joke. Maybe that is why Pablo wasn’t offended. However, it is still a racist joke, even though those can be funny sometimes too. But, do you really think that all of the people on Steve’s friend’s list is likely to 1) know who Pablo is and 2) know that is Steve is joking? Or do you think that someone, like Miss Taryn might actually take it seriously and act differently towards him. Whether the racism is coming from Steve, or some potential unknown on his friend’s list, Pablo’s post was clearly meant to combat any negative perceptions someone might have of him based off his ethnicity.
Really? You honestly think someone would deliberately go out of their way to learn something nasty in order to insult someone they, mind you, have to LIVE with? I assume they are in college and are poking fun at each other, as is typical with interracial friendships. It’s not racism, it’s acknowledging each others’ differences in an entertaining fashion (just as catholics and protestants poke fun at each other, boys and girls poke fun at each – but I suppose by your standards those sorts of things are hate speech as well regardless of the context or intent). Steve probably accidentally came upon the information doing random internet searches (as I did the first time I found out about the youngest pregnancy, look up oddities and that’s the sort of thing you’ll find) or hitting something while researching for school or something like that. Who knows. Hell, maybe he knows a pregnant girl and looked up pregnancy – holy stumble Batman!
You would have to be extremely dense or overly sensitive to not recognize the joke in Steve’s comment, regardless of your knowledge of the situation. Pablo has a comeback because it’s normal to respond jokingly to a JOKE. He’s not fighting hate, he’s being a typical dick like any other college student or young person talking to a friend.
Get off the high horse and find another forum to preach in if that’s your prerogative.
#1: There is nothing funny about pedophilia.
#2:Aries, Pablo was Steve’s roommate. Every body who knew Steve, knew Pablo.
#3: Racism clearly came from the Jews. (Just not funny to me Aries, joking or not.) You make fun of the thing people SHOULD change, not what they can’t.
