http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-2289454/Frankie-Boyle-booed-foul-mouthed-Comic-Relief-rant--AXED-broadcast.html I've always loved Frankie Boyle and his humour and he's always had people hate him for the same reasons. Some people like to throw around the right to free speech in his defence and other like to brandish the social responsibility (simply that you shouldn't abuse free speech to cause offence) card to use against him. I don't care for either argument and don't wish to participate in such a futile argument, because it bypasses the real cause of this issue. Sense of humour. I don't mean to say that some people simply don't have it and that others do, or that their sense of humour is better in any way, but simply that different people have a different sense of humour. Some people find silly videos to be funny (see youtube) whereas personally I find them mildly amusing at best, certainly not something I would consider to be comedy. I don't condemn or chastise these people for finding an entire series of cat photos with someone using their fingers to swear at them in the foreground (yes, this is a real example) absolutely hilarious. Each to their own, especially if it makes someone laugh. The one line I do draw is if comedy is gained from the suffering of another. For example animal cruelty for the sake of humour is something that I will never agree with, and participating in such a humour is a sure fire way to lose my respect, instantaneously. The same goes for any other humour that relies on someone or something else suffering for the sake of the joke, but this is a topic for another day. Some people understand that morbid comedy is about generating a funny situation from something negative, and not to simply sling accusations around or claim that some people are worthless for example. How does everyone else feel about this subject?
