    I would not want people to stop laughing at me BECAUSE I had cancer. If people felt sorry for me and refused to mock me for being a man-whore or that I was butt-ass ugly for example, it would make me feel like I was receiving pity and that would be an awful feeling. You guys have too much time on your hands to call out Djinn for this, when there are FAR TOO MANY other things to bust his balls for. You're out in left field on this one, guys.
    Thanks from Djinn

    Guess you never had breast cancer. Maybe it's just me but mocking women with breast cancer doesn't hit my funny bone. This isn't about pity this is about mocking. victims of breast cancer. I do have to laugh at you putting us down for having too much time on our hands to call out djinn for this....perhaps he has too much time on his hands to post this?? By the way I like and respect djinn.
    Thanks from Panzareta

    But names can be funny. Replace "breast cancer" in the article with some other breast-related incident, and it remains funny. Change the woman's surname to "Smith," and the funny is gone.

    I missed the whole point. I responded to your post and didn't pay attention to the name...I should have known you would not be disrespecting cancer victims.

    You're missing my point. Cancer isn't funny, but neither is it cool to treat people with cancer like cripples or invalids.

    No, I do not spend very much time on the internet. Between running a taxi business, rehabbing an ancient house, making a six hundred mile trip every week to see my son and doing physical therapy, I rarely spend more than an hour a day online.

    You like and respect Djinn? And this matters HOW?

    get over yourself.
    I actually had the phrase "Get over yourself" in my email originally, but decided to leave it out. But the PC police keep correcting people on how they're supposed to feel about life and death, so now I'm fully embracing the "get over yourself" position.

    EVERYTHING is funny if that's how you view the world.
