Just plain fake. (Yeah, I know I'm pointing out the obvious...)

Sick humor is best.
First laugh I've had in days.

It's times like these when I wonder what depresses me more....

thanks, tsarfan! I was raised to whistle thru a graveyard & I know about med students' humor & paramedics' humor & I needed that. The appalling *absence* of black humor has been scaring me all this week. rony: "plane" wrong doubled it for me. thanks, too

Whoa, dude you were WAY overclothed for such a nice warm September morning in NYC. You must've been sweatin bullets even BEFORE the big fire.

This is more black humor. Its a mock of a children's animated teaching flick featuring the tragedy as the subject. I laughed when I first saw it, but felt really guilty aftewards.

There is a guilty pleasure to be had in the first one with the tourist, ('cuz the guy's sort of goofy looking in a Let's Go Backpacking Europe sort of way) but the "they are breeding" one...I actually felt a shudder when I saw it. I'm not trying to flame machaus for posting it, but it was quite a sight to see if you have an overactive imagination.

Obviously fake on so many levels, but I did get a laugh out of it. Heck, it's not like it'll magically never have happened if I don't laugh.

I'm sure someone here can come up with a better fake than that!

For others who need a laugh there's a related but incidental news juxtaposition instance on ntk.net which is sure to raise a few eyebrows.

Oh good. So, anyway, you know they're having problems identifying the victims - well, normally they'd use dental records, but since all Americans have perfect teeth...

(ok, it's weak, but it's all I've heard, and someone has to fix the formatting)

eh? on preview that worked.

I can only concur with realjanetkagan that this show of appallingly bad taste is somehow reassuring. The unwillingness to look at this horrendous attack from other angles is what upsets me most about the handling of the aftermath. I am off course not only hinting to the 'black humor' perspective but also the 'what can we do that will not commit other people to hatred' - perspective. Although I did not find the 3d-scene funny at all - I breathe more easy now that I know it is out there. Hopefully other perspective shifts will follow.

How do you guys find this stuff? I must use the wrong search engines or really crappy search strings.

Not that I *want* to find this sort of stuff, but really...(!!)
