The british stand-up comedian Jimmy Carr did a really funny rape joke on one of his DVDs.

Whats worse than finding a worm in your apple?
- Being raped!


Bwaaaahahahaha, I loooooled!

Thanks for a good example of a really bad rape joke.   Sorry, but I think in order to laugh at that a person must have an IQ of -10.

Is this one funny? :shock:

A MAN has been arrested after allegedly using personal ads on classifieds website Craigslist to find a man to rape his wife.

CNN reports police in Kannapolis, North Carolina, responded to an emergency call at 2.45am on Sunday about a man with a knife sexually assaulting a woman in her bedroom.

The husband was present during the assault and two young children slept nearby.

Captain Ralph Adams said inconsistencies in the husbandís statement and no sign of forced entry raised their suspicions, and they seized electronic equipment from the home.

Officers allegedly found that the man used personal ads on Craigslist to arrange for someone to come to their home and rape his wife using "some kind of scare tactic".

The husband has been charged with first-degree rape, two counts of first-degree sexual offence and one count of attempted first-degree sexual offence.

Craigslist, based in San Francisco, is run by less than 30 people but offers classified ads and forums for more than hundreds of cities in the US and around the world. In 2004, online auction website eBay bought 25 per cent of the firm's equity.

The website, which is not liable for certain ads, has previously been linked to court cases involving ads for hitmen and babies for sale. It introduced a new verification system last November to crack down on illicit prostitution.

I heard this story on the radio.  Last week, I think.  And no, I don't think it's funny.  Generally, when you're comfortable enough to marry someone you trust them.  And that man betrayed his wife's trust in a major way.  She's been completely violated, not only by a stranger, but also with the consent of someone she thought she knew, trusted, and loved.  She'll never forget that night, and she'll probably never be able to fall in love and trust anyone ever again.  Not really funny at all, now is it.

Rape can be funny when taken in the context of a joke.  Such as, "Imagine Porky Pig raping Elmer Fudd.  I know what you're thinking, Elmer was asking for it."

Anyone who thinks actual news stories about actual rapes is funny is a sick bastard.

How is that bad? The whole point of the joke is that rape is not something you expect to hear as the punchline. That combined with the comedian's "proper" english accent and the shock value of using rape in a joke makes it funny. Unless one has a huge stick up ones ass. :P

Unless one is used to Jimmy Carr, whose entire act is saying idiotic things in a "proper" English accent. 

Sorry, still stupid.

Rape's not funny, ever.  Neither is beating someone to death, decapitation, torture, or child molestation.

Jokes about any of the above can be funny......it just depends on the joke. 

all of it is quite sickening

insensitive

distasteful

if you've got nothing better to do than rape or think about raping or talk about raping others...here's hoping for your immediate extermination...


Must resist... urge to.... derail topic. Anyway, Like others on this thread, it depends on the joke. Like for instance, the boondocks did a good job of making jail rape funny.

I actually meant it when I told you to pull the stick out of your ass. Just grab it and pull. Unless someone else put it there without consent, of course. Geddit? Like anal stick rape. *lol himself to death*

It's completely normal to make humorous observations about things which are in fact very horrible. If people couldn't do that I suspect most would cry all the time. That doesn't mean I think rape IRL is funny. In fact when it has happened to someone I know, even if I don't know them very well, I get mad to the point where it physically affects me. But that doesn't mean I haven't laughed at a joke about the concept of rape.

I picked the second option.

When it happens to men in jails.


Not that I personally think assrape is funny, but certain comedians keep warning people to not drop the soap. I personally find it distasteful.

Maybe if it was Israeli's imprisoned in Iran, I would get a chuckle out of that.
