Where do you personally draw the line at joking? And I dont mean how other people should act when you joke with them or necessarily what "offends" you, but where do you go "I dont find this funny."
I personally can joke around all day, basically anything can be said, when I know someone and Im friends with them. I dont like to joke around with people Im not friends with and I dont want to take those comments as jokes. If I make a joke at someone im not friends with and said person knows we're not friends it's because I generally have grown to not like them and Im trying to offend them.
well of course you dont crack controversial jokes to people youve just met like a 9/11 joke to someone who had one of their relatives die in 9/11
But when jokes are made to laugh at someone else because you dont like them and also to provoke/anger them then thats when you start comming off as a little cunt.
I joke about everything and everyone. Of course, I try to be modest around normal people. With my friends, the modesty goes down a good deal. On the BBS, I say whatever I want.
As for the joke itself, it it's a travesty that just happened, I try to wait for a while, especially with non-friends. Things like 9/11 and the holocaust, yea, I'll make fun of them.
This is my signature. It is a nice signature.
I don't think it works to have limits in humour, anything can be funny if the joke is made in a good way. A lot of the time I can riff with some mates about incest, rape or something absolutely disgusting just for the shock / ironic element of it. You can't ever say there are subjects you can't joke about, it's like saying there's material that you can't talk about.
The only things I don't joke about are rape, incest, and molestation
One good thing about music, is that when it hits you, you feel no pain.
More or less at religion bashing jokes. I wouldn't call it drawing the line, I just find them to be stupid or unfunny.
Saying Internet memes IRL is where I draw the line. I'm OK with seeing them on the Internet and if used creatively they can be funny, but in real life they're most often overused uncreatively and are so unfunny they make me cringe.

I don't. In fact, I go the extra mile. If I make a joke about someone having sex with their mother or something, I'll go flat out and narrate a made-up-on-the-spot fapfic of them having sex with their mother. I don't tell jokes to amuse other people, I tell jokes because I find the horrified looks on other people's faces hilarious.
When it comes to close family and friends, we can joke all damn day. Since I know them so well, I know what upsets them and what doesn't. But if someone is being crude and disgusting that's when I draw the line.
Racist jokes, Note: there is a huge difference between stereotypes and flat out racism.
Saying things "like race A - is better then Race B" because guy in Race B made a mistake is where I draw the line.
I draw the line right here.
Outright racist jokes are unacceptable to me(Not because they're offensive, but because they're illogical, and I like jokes to make sense and have some truth to them). However, jokes about racial stereotypes are fine, because let's face it, some people of certain ethnicities act and think in a painfully stereotypical manner, and deserve to be made fun of for it.
In general, jokes that are offensive AND illogical are not OK. If it's a joke about a controversial subject or even, say, the Holocaust, then I may or may not laugh, if there's some truth to it. The same goes for 9/11 and other tragedies. I'm not easily offended.

im unable to draw any line
Nowhere. Anyone and anything has the right to be made fun of.
In the beginning the Universe was created. This has made a lot of people very angry and has been widely regarded as a bad move.
On the internet there is no line.
In real life I never draw the line if it's nothing but bros.
It's all situational in my opinion. Obviously you're not going to joke around about rape when there's a rape victim in the room, but that doesn't mean it's not ok to joke about rape... that kind of sounds bad, hope it came out right.

eh dont draw lines they just make me want to cross em
God wants us to laugh becuse humor makes us live longer, I just don't joke about death too much cuz thats serious. People die
im known as a dick in my group of friends anyway so i never really have to apologize for what i say because people just figure that's who i am however i have learned the hard way where the line is after i've already krumped all over it, the problem with this is when i am arguing in real life i know i can go over the line and keep going, but i try to control myself and let the other person think they've won because sometimes i like people, which results in no one taking me seriously when i am arguing a point unless i am actually passionate about it, in which case my usual vocabulary of creative vocabulary does a flip into sophisticated patois
i personally think "ironic" anti-humor is fucking awful
political humor is almost never funny, as well
obvious racial humor is terrible
anything related to "humor" that is promoting anti-intellectualism
internet jokes/memes are awful
jokes about mundane events suck (observational comedy)
"character" comedy is fucking irritating (carrey, kaufman, etc)
welp, there's probably more humor i don't find funny, stay tuned
i should probably just say i don't like comedy in general, outside of organic comedy brought on by people not actually attempting to be funny
Whenever it's specifically making fun of a single person.
Seriously, who even reads these things anymore?
As long as the joke isnt too hurtful to me or someone else i personally know, or isnt beating a dead horse, i'll usually be ok with just about anything
