Humor is a double edged sword: humor can be a positive force in workplaces, and it can make coping with things easier. The problem with humor is “where you draw the line”?
The above pic about The Phantom can be funny, but there might be some people who get offended (or think that is stupid toilet humor – heh). Same goes humor in workplaces: where can we draw the line? Is it okay to tell jokes about politicians? About women? Men?
Is South Park humor okay?
In Finland there’s this comics called Viivi & Wagner that tells about a talking pig character and his wife. I think most men find this okay to make jokes about how men are pig. In one comic strip, the pig Wagner wanted to start drawing a comic about a man and a cow – and got us thinking if that would be acceptable to draw such comic where woman would be represented by a cow character (and man would be human).
It’s a tricky issue, and I’ve found it best that most of the jokes I tell are somehow related about myself (rather than ‘attacks’ about other people).
What’s your thoughts?
