I can't stop laughing.
Still an awful person.
I thought if I posted it I'd get a tirade of abuse. But yeah, it's pretty ironic. Probably a bit lol-worthy too.
that really is funny.
(instant post regret)
At least her son doesn't use guns.
You using some sort of youth vernacular is a close second though
but what can you possibly find funny about it?
i'd laugh if bono died of aids in africa but this isnt funny, or interesting.
what do people find funny about this story?
do you laugh at stories like 'doctor revives patient, is immediately stabbed' ?
im actually curious, cos aside from the presumed irony of the situation, its just not funny
So you can't really say 'aside from the irony' cause it would be like saying 'aside from these two giants, right' and they're integral to the comedy.
I mean, what a massive fuck you to every other part of society. What, do they think we all go around saying, "MORE murder, MORE manslaughter"?
No specifics, just "criminality"
to oafishness, they'd find marketing much easier.
They haven't expressed any disdain for rape or fraud. I'm concerned.
so if you look past the horrific stabbing of a wellmeaning community leader and focus on the small grammatical mistakes oif the article then you can get a right bellylaugh going eh.
im sure you know what i mean
Can we all go back to finding sub-American Pie humour the be-all and end-all of comedy please?
You're being a twat, and it isn't often I get to say that
or christians against poverty.
its not a fuck you to anyone dumbass
Who is FOR murder and manslaughter? I don't get why people make these sorts of groups with titles that are un-inclusive. I just think it's silly and I feel it does imply automatically that because I am not in one of those groups I should be feeling immediately guilty on some level.
it really is something to get FUCKING ANGRY about isnt it!
HOW DARE THOSE FUCKING WENCHES EXCLUDE ME!
But y'know, you may re-read the point I've made properly at some point in the future and get FUCKING ANGRY about your inability to understand what I was saying.
Let's just say I agree with the things groups like that are fighting for, but I don't agree that one needs to be so crass about naming your group.
just stop embarassing yourself.
SOMEONE HAVE A DIFFERENT SENSE OF HUMOUR TO ME?!
the point is: all youre laughing about is the stabbing of a woman. thats pretty sad if you ask me
and most of them aren't
im sure i remember what i meant, since i wrote it
that you think "Mothers against manslaughter" isn't a silly name for a charity.
maybe when u start your own charity and give it the greatest name ever then ill come and kneel at your feet. til then...
nothing should be discussed, ever, unless you're going to do it. If you ever criticize music I'm gon bust yo ass.
i was saying 'why post a link to this article saying its funny?' and also 'why are people perpetuating this by saying 'haha i cant stop laughing'.
Read my post again.
If the headline were 'woman stabbed by youths', there wouldn't be a thread here, would there?
I'm discussing how crass I find the name "Mothers Against Murder and Manslaugter".
"Biggest Bell-end in the thread"
I think I may have trebled the number of people on DiS who hate me. Ho hum.
The thread where all the fake accounts decided I was the biggest cunt made it to the mailout. Outstanding
apologies for not being dead inside
you are funny
I can easily see how the headline could be seen as funny though.
Burma is really doing it for me now.
and keep saying hilarous shit like this
blah blah blah...
Are people really oblivious to why this is funny or are people just embarrassingly desperate to show how righteous they are?
If we can't laugh about people being murdered what can we laugh at.
but no, it's not funny that a pacifist was murdered. It's pretty fucking unfunny.
you simpleton fuck.
like i said, i get the joke, i just don't think the poorly phrased title is funny because of the really fucking unfunny story it's describing.
each to their own, but don't try and act like you're intelligent.
you're fucking 16! seriously, fuck off.
That makes you the idiot.
no, i'm just saying it's a little that a 16 year old would try and patronise me.
i didn't suggest for a second that a 16 year old couldn't be intelligent, just that they shouldn't be patronising.
so get out of your own arse, yeah?
but you started the patronising, kid.
It's irratating to see people get on their high horses so quickly when the starting post is basically "I find this funny despite the fact that the story is horrible" - people then jump down his throat for finding it funny despite the fact that the story is horrible as if they're so moral.
I'll never try to act intelligent again in my life, thanks for the advice - although it was pretty patronising.
It's also nice how you patronise me about being patronising and then patronise me about my age. And now i'm patronising you about being patronising to me.
I think they should alter the headline somewhat, 'cause at the moment it looks like the work of Chris Morris or something. And yes, it is therefore funny.
'It is thought her grandson was also arrested earlier on Sunday in connection with an unrelated stabbing at Leeds railway station.'
if the same person is accused of stabbing two people on the same day?
It says he is suspected of stabbing someone else.
It is a pretty poorly written sentence actuall.
The earlier stabee just received wounds.
Everyone's stabbing each other these days - just because the same person stabbed two people, it doesn't mean there's a connection.
Article is incredibly sad.
i've not read the actual article, as obviously it wont be funny, but in isolation that's a funny headline
because of this thread.
I smiled at the headline and then thought the story was a bit grim.
Whereas I laughed quite a few times at Peep Show.
Peep Show 1 Dead-anti-gun-campaigner-story 0
Medical science 2 Peep Show 1 Dead-anti-gun-campaigner-story 0
I quite like going to the doctors though.
Would I like it?
sounds like the standard counter-argument for the whole catholic contraception issue
Somewhere along the line he or his child at a very very young age committed a sin.
by stating that she's a prominent anti-gun campaigner in the headline. I'm sure the irony is meant as a bitter irony rather than a funny irony, but it does make it look like a Chris Morris parody.
The BBC news website is full of slightly tasteless gaffs and typos. A couple of weeks ago the most read story was about tits doing better in warm weather - it meant birds of course, but the title was obviously a deliberate attempt to get you to click.
just because its ironic doesnt make it funny
