SORRY about my insensitivity, Kube. And I'm REALLY sorry to hear about losing your long-time friend.

Some of us find this in poor taste. I just buried one two weeks ago that I'd cared for the past twenty years.

Coopman, YOU have my full respect and have had it for years. No apology necessary - none at all.
How would you have possibly known about the recent loss?
We're good... at least I hope so....

Beating a DEAD horse has been a saying longer than we have been alive.

OK everyone, from now on, any reference to horses are off limits. We must be very, very careful what we say nowadays.

The phrase "flogging a dead horse" is in common use and I would think on it's own wouldn't be taken as offensive, but I had to agree, I didn't like seeing an animation of the action being carried out. (No matter how cartoonish). Like lots of phrases it stems from much harsher times.

Maybe we're all just a bit sensitive these days? Seems that almost anything can offend somebody - not even what once was "politically correct" stands a chance of passing muster on our new world's "sensitivity stage".

I'd hate to be a comedian these days - as so much of what we used to call "humor" or "jokes" are directed at somebody, some situation or some group. In fact I've frequently heard the SAME joke said by two groups -- used to make fun of the other . . . with the "subject of the punch line" turned around. What used to be funny is no longer funny - it is offensive by today's standards.

My perspective is a bit like Eleanor Roosevelt's -- who famously said that "Nobody can make you feel inferior without your consent".

My version is: "Nobody can offend you without your consent". Unless your a close friend and/or somebody whose opinion I greatly respect - pretty dang hard for me to take offense to something you say or do. If I do, then it is on ME - as I chose to respond and somehow allow my self to become "offended".

Funny times we live in . . .

Right on Dale. I grew up with a rough crowd & the world we are living in today with all these “sensitive feelings “ is difficult for sure.

I agree completely. I had a signature line on another site that said:
There is no I in team but there are 3 U's in shut the f*ck up.
Someone got their panties in a wad about it so I deleted it. No signature anymore. Don't want to offend anyone. Yes, Funny times we live in.
