I rather liked app's joke there and thought it was cute.
I also grew up with a lot of religious and racist humour that was simply hilarious. Anyone else ever watch The Dave Allen show?
That was great stuff!
So, cheers for Dave Allen!
But racist humour isn't all *that
God invented whiskey to keep the Irish from ruling the world.
We have always found the Irish a bit odd. They refuse to be English.
When I get a very generous introduction like that I explain that I'm emotionally moved, but on the other hand I'm Irish and the Irish are very emotionally moved. My mother is Irish and she cries during beer commercials.
When we drink, we get drunk. When we get drunk, we fall asleep. When we fall asleep, we commit no sin. When we commit no sin, we go to Heaven. So, let's all get drunk and go to heaven.
Drink is the curse of the land. It makes you fight with your neighbor. It makes you shoot at your landlord and it makes you miss him.
Only Irish coffee provides in a single glass all four essential food groups: alcohol, caffeine, sugar, and fat.Happy Hour in Newfoundland
A Newfie saw a sign at a restaurant.
Happy Hour Special:
Lobster Tail & Beer.
"Lard Tunderin Jaises!" he says to himself, "Me tree favourite things!"
A young, Newfoundlander man was walking around a field in Newfoundland, when he came across an old well. He walked up to the well, just to get a look. He noticed an old looking bottle in the well bucket. He picked it up. And suddenly a genie appeared before him.
The genie said, "For freeing me, I will grant you one wish."
The young man said, "Ok. I wish that there was a bridge going from Newfoundland to the mainland, you know, like the P.E.I. one."
The genie said,"I am sorry, but I can't do that. That would be TOO much change. That would be ALMOST impossible. It would change too many peoples lives."
So the young man thought for a second, then said, "Ok, then. I am a proud Newfoundlander, and I am sick and tired of everyone making fun of Newfoundlanders. SO I wish that Newfound landers were as smart, or even smarter than ANYONE else in the world. Or at least smarter than any other Canadian."
The genie said, "So, do you want two lanes, or four?"
I had a non-stop supply of Newfie jokes when I was a kid because I had a lot of Newfie friends.
My favourite Newfie joke has to be done in person, and really requires the proper situation, which of course involves snow...
But I also love humour that dumps on nationalities.
Q: Why does Celine Dion want to purchase the Montreal Canadiens?
A: Because she wants to ruin more than just music!
Q: What's the difference between an American and a Canadian?
A: A Canadian not only has a sense of humour, but can also spell it.
Q: What's the difference between Canada, Mexico and America?
A: America has nice neighbours.
Canada: Home of the largest French population never to surrender to Germany
Finally got my Canadian history exam results back.. I got an EH
In Canada the seasons are: Almost winter, winter, still winter, and road construction.
(more at the link with comebacks)
What's the difference between a dove and the Canadian Air Force? At least a dove can get off the ground.
Why did the Canadian cross the road? To get in the middle!
You know you're from Canada when you think sexy lingerie is tube socks and a flannel nightie with only eight buttons.
What is big and white and found in Vancouver? A lost polar bear.
In Canada there are two seasons: six months of winter and six months of poor snowmobiling.
I had a chance to meet the Canadian military. What a nice guy.
It's not about race, or sex, or religion -- it's about the attitudes towards them. Often this says more about the listener than the speaker, which may or may not be simply a thin skin or desire to feel victimised in order to feel special. Often it's about the speaker and malicious or hateful intent behind the joke, which isn't funny.

"Racist" humour (etc.) can be a source of fun and enjoyment if it comes from the right place. (Or, some people just need a chill pill.)
