    Elizabet Frizl has been crowned hide and seek champion after hiding for 24 years.

    The McCans have branded her a cheat saying she "Had help from her Dad"

    Bad Taste and I don't mean the film, which is excellent by the way.

    I would laugh. I tend to love things that offend people.

    Unfortunately this isn't funny. Suggesting deletion on grounds of boringness.

    This isn't funny, not because it's in bad taste, but it is simply not funny.

    Isnt that the point though? Aren't these kinds of "jokes" told to provoke a reaction of disgust and not one of laughter?

    In that case it's trolling, not joke-telling.

    No, see 'schadenfreude'. Why do you think the story, and stories like it, become headline news?

    that's nothing. consider yourself lucky...

    edit:

    I suppose bit-tech does have a more conservative attitude towards things though.

    there are places for this sort of thing. and whilst I find it amusing, I probably wouldn't post it here.

    Look, im not saying its tasteful or its a nice thing to joke about, because its not. What I am saying is that people make these "jokes" do so not because they think its funny or its a witty remark, but to get a reaction out of people.

    I'd call half and half on that one really. some people do find it funny, as horrible as it is to derive humor from these things, who can honestly say they haven't laughed at something they shouldn't?

    Yeah point taken, I remember hearing one on b3ta which went something like "Why did the little girl drop the balloon? Because she was getting raped in the face" I think it was the maddox interview, personally I thought it was hilarious. I guess timing plays a fair part of it, maybe its too soon to see the dark humor within, I dont know.

    I can't believe someone even tried to make a joke about this.
