I bet it was the few religious-oriented jokes that got it yanked.

People need to lighten up, they are just jokes.

It wasn't the jokes. It was the self righteous.

Why not start a thread on humor?

MustangsandMore.com has a separate area for humor, and although the site itself is pretty strictly monitored and family-friendly the humor area is labeled "the Men's Room" and you have to sign up and be over 18 to view it. Still, they don't allow porno or swearing in there, just some politically-incorrect and often times off-color jokes.

Yeah, we could call it the "New and improved, guaranteed not to piss anybody off, the seven words you can't say on tv, don't say this or don't say that joke thread" but only if the ghost of McCarthy doesn't think it has a commie overtone to it!"

Sorry in advance if I hurt someone's feeling by posting this!

There once was a group of jackals who lived on a beautiful island in the middle of the ocean. They had the shady side of the island, and the hyenas had the sunny side of the island. When the jackals found out the hyenas had sunshine, they went berserk and drove the hyenas out into the ocean and took over the whole island for themselves.

The hyenas then learned to swim and frolic in the cool water, and were just so happy to be alive. The jackals looked on in amazement and wondered how they could also be happy to be alive, which they definitely were not. They decided to dry up the ocean so the hyenas would not have more fun than they. The jackals went right to work shoveling dirt into the ocean to dry it up, while the hyenas continued to frolic.

The island shrunk and shrunk and got so tiny that there wasn't any shade left at all, and yet the jackals continued to shovel dirt into the ocean. The hyenas watched all this in amazement, and continued to swim and frolic, just so happy to be alive.

The jackals then discovered that they had run out of dirt to shovel, and in fact had run out of island altogether. When they saw that they hadn't dried up the ocean at all, and the hyenas were still swimming and frolicking, they just drowned and the hyenas laughed and swam and frolicked ever after. The end.

I've been holding off posting on this thread with my opinions on this matter. I was a participant in the original thread, and some of my posts would have admittedly been borderline, but that is the nature of jokes; they are intended to be interpreted a certain way. Unfortunately, certain recipients of this material choose to take offence.
I believe laughter is the best medicine, and this forum does deserve to have a thread based on humour. I think Scott H has a good solution. There has been no communication from Ryan about the tone of the original thread, rather it has just disappeared. Maybe Ryan could organise a restricted adults site for us, after all, some of the HAMB stuff would upset certain individuals here, and yet it goes.
Lets be grown up about this. Brian

Here is how you do it on this Social Network,you have the option of creating a Social Group to do this click on "Community" up top, click on Social Groups and create one that caters to your particular interest and state that in your heading, here is a good example from the HAMB http://www.jalopyjournal.com/forum/g...hp?groupid=149 as you can see you can post a lot of subjects that are not allowed in our Main board here.Here is another example http://www.jalopyjournal.com/forum/g...hp?groupid=453 where even politics is discussed,a Social Group is like your TV remote if you don't like something don't watch it by giving it a "click".As long as members respect one another and avoid trashing someone else's way of thinking and keeping an open mind you will find harmony.

I got one "congratulating" me for shutting the thread down.
The joke I told concerning the current festive season and "nails", nearly started a "holy war" and was probably the final "nail" in the thread. Easter is supposed to be about "goodwill towards all mankind".... or so I thought." I don't set out to cause offence but really some people get too precious. Like the subject of my joke "the thread will rise again"
