Comedy is in a very tricky place right now.

There is so much to NOT laugh about in this world.

In truth, many of us have forgotten how to laugh.

And certain jokes that are told, make people afraid to laugh.

So what do we do?

We tell inappropriate jokes apparently.

Let's hear some...

RedditorCrewCreation wanted to hear some "risky" comedy. So they asked:

"What’s the best morbid joke you know?"


I can't think of anything hilarious at the moment. Make us LOL.


Shocked Oh No GIF by Yêu LuGiphy

"I have this friend, love him to bits, but his wife has a tendency of just constantly showing everyone pictures of their son at every social event. At the start it was understandable, but now I'm just like 'Lady, it's been two years; they're not going to find him.'"


at 9am...

"Not the most morbid but I love Anthony Jeselnik’s story about his neighbor who has Alzheimer’s. 'One of my next door neighbors is a 90 year old man suffering from Alzheimer’s. And every single morning at 9am he knocks on my door and asks me if I have seen his wife.'"

"'Which means that every single morning at 9am I have to explain to a 90 year old man suffering from Alzheimer’s that his wife has been dead for quite some time. Now I’ve thought about moving. I have thought about just not answering my door in the morning. But to be honest, it’s worth it… just to see the smile on his face.”



"Why can't orphans play baseball? They don't know where home is."


"Why can't orphans play tennis? They get confused when they hear love."


People who make comedy are evil. LOL.

"Dark humor is like food; not everyone gets it."


God Laughs?

"A Holocaust survivor dies and goes to heaven, where she meets God. To break the tension she tells God a joke about the Holocaust, but God doesn’t laugh. The lady shrugs and says 'I guess you had to be there.'"

“'I guess you had to be there' is a common expression used when someone doesn’t laugh at a joke. It means that the comedy may not translate without the context of the situation."

"In this case the Holocaust survivor is saying it, meaning that during the Holocaust God was nowhere to be found. It’s not really a joke about the Holocaust, but the absurdity of belief in a benevolent God. Hilarious right?"


Oh Baby

"How many dead babies does it take to fix a light bulb? More than 3 cause my garage is still dark."



"Four people are on a plane, a British guy, a French guy, a Mexican guy, and a guy from Texas. The plane is about to go down so the pilot tells everyone to grab a parachute and jump. The British guy goes first, grabs a parachute, says 'long live the queen!' And jumps out. The French guy goes next, grabs a parachute, says 'vive la France!' And jumps out. Then the Texan goes next, says 'remember the Alamo!' And throws out the Mexican."


Oh Baby

"How many babies does it take to paint a wall? Depends how hard you throw ‘em."


"Dead baby jokes are my favorite. What’s funnier than a dead baby? A dead baby dressed as a clown."


"I hate myself for laughing the way I did. I'm so ashamed."



Oh My God Wow GIF by The Roku ChannelGiphy

"To necrophiliacs there's nothing better than cracking open a cold one."


Forest Story

"A stranger brings a person in a dark scary forest."

"-Sir, I'm scared."

"-Imagine me, I'll have to find my way back alone..."


2 Chris'

"What’s the opposite of Christopher Reeve?"

"Christopher Walken."


"I googled sick jokes one day and that was the first result. Savage."



"What's the difference between a baby and a bag of coke?"

"Eric Clapton would pay enough attention for the bag of coke to not drop out of a window."


"That’s Dark Dark."


World Issues

"Why did the Ethiopian put up a clothesline?"

"So the children can play in the shade."

"How do you recognize a wealthy Ethiopian?"

"Rolex round the waist."



"What was Bin Laden's favorite drink."

"A double Manhattan."


"I always heard 'two kamikaze shots followed by a manhattan.'"


Oh no.

Frustrated Gecko GIFGiphy

"They say there's safety in numbers... try telling that to 6 million Jews."



"I want to die like my granddad, while sleeping. Not like the two people screaming in his car."


"I've always heard this one as: I want to die peacefully in my sleep, like my grandad. Not screaming for my life, like the passengers on his bus."


I don't know whether to laugh or cry. Because I don't know what it says about us as people if we laugh. Oye.

Remember the Dreamcast? If you don't, then you've been missing out. Sit down, sweet summer child, and listen up.

The Dreamcast was a console so ahead of its time that console has been a Dreamcast since there was a Dreamcast. Too advanced to match its competitors, not appealing enough to be considered part of the next generation. I have fond memories of that console. Crazy Taxi was a gem.

Not everything comes out at the right time. We heard about a few other examples after Redditor rentinghappiness asked the online community,

"In your opinion, what’s something that flopped because it was way ahead of its time?"

Consumers who have money to burn often buy things they don't really need, like travel accessories, specialized sports equipment for an activity they've only done once, or even cookbooks, when plenty of recipes can be found online.

You know, try as I might, I just can't bring myself to bother with The Walking Dead. I quit the show some years ago, probably around the time of that weird fakeout with Glen in the dumpster (and then his actual death right after that), but the truth is that the show was getting on my nerves for some time before that.

Did anyone actually care about all the nonsense going on with Deanna and the citizens of Alexandria? And can we go back a bit further and talk about how ludicrous Beth's death at the hands of some power-tripping officer in a hospital ward was? There was such a noticeable drop in quality after the third season that I questioned why I kept tuning in.

But this show is far from the only one to make people want to throw their remotes at their television screens. People shared their thoughts with us after Redditor regian24 asked the online community,

"What TV show was amazing at first but became unwatchable for you later on?"

People Break Down Which Professions Hollywood Gets Completely Wrong

More often than not, what gets us to keep tuning in to our favorite TV shows, or drawn to certain movies, is to get a glimpse into various professions which fascinate us, but which we wouldn't ever want to work ourselves.

Needless to say, there aren't many people who find the Indiana Jones films to be a remotely accurate depiction of archaeology, or that the Jurassic Park films show what paleontology is really like.

But many people tend to watch iconic procedurals like Grey's Anatomy and Law & Order under the notion that they both give an accurate depiction of the medical field and the legal world.

Only, how accurate are they?

Redditor Just_Surround_2108 was curious to learn which professions have been documented on screen without as much research as one might expect, leading them to ask:

"What profession does Hollywood get completely wrong in films and TV?"
