Gallows Type Humor
I didn't mean to offend. I thought it would lead to a thread like "dick moves" or "overheard in passing" but with things that have made you laugh in times of hardship, devestation, sorrow, frustration, etc. Maybe it was a bad example or not well written. I could provide a less intense example since I think the thread still has potential.
When I was graduating high school there was a scholarship that I really wanted to win. They read off the list at graduation I was visibly devestated. Someone leaned over and said, "There's always next year.' It made me laugh and I felt better.
I usually don't start joke threads, but lately I've come to appreciate how funny Alzheimer's can be. My girlfriend Samantha's father has it and we've gotten some good laughs outta him. He's blind, so we have to guide him to the bathroom and sometimes, when he's especially disoriented, he'll ask, "Where are you taking me?" and we'll say, "The bathroom." And then he says, "Bathroom? But I have to go to the bathroom!" He's got this little watch that tells him what time it is, so sometimes, when he's in a very angry state, he'll be cursing everyone's name, and all you here is, "Fuck Ben, Fuck Samantha--the time is 5:00PM--Fuck you!" Gold!
