Re: The latest crime wave


Re > why do those who know where I come from think
it is all right to tell me redneck jokes

What I'd like to know is REGARDLESS OF WHERE YOU COME FROM, why is it
alright for them to tell redneck jokes?

I'm not Polish, but I don't appreciate most Polish jokes.  Though, I must
confess that I (brunette) have been known to giggle at a blonde joke on
occasion.  What it usually comes down to for me is not to whom the joke
refers, but the joke itself.  If it has wit, if the humor is dry, if it
obviously took some intelligence to come up with the joke, and if its aim
(veiled or unveiled) is not to hurt anyone, I stand a good chance of
appreciating it at some level.  However, most of the redneck jokes and the
others you've mentioned don't meet my criteria.
