    Lets take this morbid humor thread in a new direction, with dead babies numbering in the low tens of millions

There's nothing clever about it. Morbid, yes, but not necessarily going far enough or being well-crafted or clever enough to be actually funny.

    Many times, people think, "Oh, people just don't get my sophisticated, dark humor." No, we get it. It's just not that funny. All taboo, no punchline.
    This is exactly what I was going to try to say.

    Quoted for this, and for emphasis.

    ...and now we have sunk to a new low. How much lower can these jokes take?

    What do you think about me? And for the darker side, here.

    I'd characterize my friend's humor as a supreme appreciation for the absurd. (He's the only INTJ I know, though.)

    Well, I don't think everything dark and cruel is funny at all, frankly that is why I am disconnected from most of humanity. Humankind is often dark and cruel and not funny. I actually am curious why these do strike me as humorous, though not the sexually abusive ones AT ALL. Hmm...retreats to consider.

    I have a very morbid sense of humour. It's just the best material.

    Come to think of it, I'll now interject with some suggestions:

    1) Miscommunication: we may have the context in our heads, but other people don't see things the way we do
    2) Wanting to be part of a small group of people who 'gets' this sort of humour which is often in bad taste by everyone else
    3) The 'Ni' sense of seeing the tradgo-comedy of the affairs and lives of humans
    4) Annoying others just for the fun of it

    Any more?

    Drill instructors get away with a lot more than you'd think. They're not even supposed to touch recruits, but it happens. As far as verbal abuse, that's a given. I've heard stories about boot camp in Vietnam. It was more ruthless back then.

    Here's a modern day ass chewing in basic training.

    Hahaha! best thread in a long time... I sure have a morbid humour..

    Why do ducks have so big feet?

    So they can extinguish grassfires.

    Why do elephants have so big feet?

    So they can extinguish burning ducks.

    Something like that in norwegian.. Its the only joke i can.. but i need to memories the dead baby jokes just to scare of girls when im bored and wants to get away.. or just to scare a fat girl away.. or something.
