I find cringe inducing jokes amusing, yeah, mostly due to the audacity of making such a joke to begin with. Doesn't mean I think the tragedy is funny but rather a person's ability to be so flippant about it. But I like a dark edge to my humor. Sue me.
We painstakingly explained this to davers about eighteen months ago. I don't want to get into it again.
Alright, so we've got that Dr. Garbanzoured out. Next point of order: changing the title of this thread will solve part of the problem, but we'll still have two pages' worth of posts that retain the header RE: Beachballocaust. The majority of those posts are riffs on the original title of the thread anyway, so my question is this: will anyone be offended if this thread disappears and we start over again with something a little more tasteful?
I don't mean to seem reactionary (not at this particular moment, anyway), but this is a high-traffic time of year for the board and frankly I feel like this reflects poorly on us.
im totally fine with this, i dont care who starts it as long as it happens

It does technically have other meanings but only one comes right to mind. It is just respectful of the victims and families who are still affected by this today to not make light of it or seem to. It is easier and more fun to come up with a new name. I do think this sounds like a lot of fun.
