Things can be both funny and serious; that you can't see that, well, that's up to you and your pearl necklace.

Soldier vs. tire.

I'm with Potrokin on this. It's really not appropriate in a "funniest thing you've read" thread and would only be appropriate in a "horrors of war/crimes of capitalism" type thread. Anyone who thinks such images should be shown more, particularly in a thread such as this, is a complete prick and has probably never had to bury a child of their own.

Oh, so it's serious then and not FUN? I should think so. This thread is titled Funniest Thing You Read Today- is it not?

Perhaps it would be more appropriate in a thread not entitled 'funniest thing you read.' I know of some independent news networks that show deceased people, and it shouldn't be censored in that context in my opinion (a warning would be nice though).

I don't know. It's dark humor. Maybe if you didn't find anything else humorous that day lol?

I agree with the point kinda.

The tire thing is similar but easier! Poor soldiers. Tires are vicious terrorism.

Recent Facebook comments by the Great Informed British Electorate;

"I couldn't possibly vote for a Gemini."

"Proportional representations doesn't exist anymore I've been reading...as large employers have block votes? and I guess large employers will largely vote for whomever will give them the biggest tax cuts and the ability to continue having zero hour contacts etc...so my question is...is there any evidence to support this whole tacticall vote thing? ... it does mean that big business can be allocated votes depending on their size and employee numbers."

Vegan groups from Hertfordshire have condemned the spate of graffiti carried out by a group calling itself the Vegan Vandals.

Representatives from Hertfordshire Animal Rights, Herts Vegetarians & Vegans, and Hertfordshire Chicken Save have prepared a statement insisting the vigilantes do not represent the majority of vegans.

pigs in space or semi-posadism?

Quote:
Powers planned by the Government aiming to pave the way for commercial space flights in Britain will be included in the Queen’s Speech alongside a raft of investments in transport infrastructure.

The legislation, according to Department for Transport (DfT), will allow the launch of satellites from the UK for the first time, horizontal flights to the edge of space for scientific experiments and the establishment of spaceports in regions across Britain.

Authorities in St. Petersburg, Florida, are battling an onslaught of graffiti depicting a three-buttocked arse. NBC affiliate WFLA reports that the design has appeared at least twenty times across the city. It is thought to be the calling card of a single anonymous artist, who police stress is breaking the law.

these weirdos: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dami_Mission

Quote:
The Dami Mission (Korean: 다미선교회) was a Christian religious movement founded in South Korea by Lee Jang Rim (Korean: 이장림; Hanja: 李長林). It received worldwide attention after Lee predicted that the rapture and end of the world would occur on 28 October 1992. After the prediction failed Lee was convicted of defrauding his followers out of millions of dollars.
