YOUR friend with a progressive mindset does not find the edgy joke you are laughing at very funny, actually.
Relentlessly right-on pal Francesca Johnson has taken issue with the viral joke you forwarded to her, and is now explaining at great length why you should be ashamed of yourself for laughing at it.
She said: “I like a good giggle as much as the next person, except for when a joke goes against the grain and requires a trace of irony to process. At that point I shut down and become a humourless robot.
“By laughing at a gag which doesn’t punch up in the way I prefer I take it that you are aligned with its problematic values? You’re lucky I haven’t asked my half a dozen followers to dog-pile you and bring about your cancellation.
“Can’t you see that it’s manipulative, exploitative, and has serious consent issues? I think you should take a good long look in the mirror and re-evaluate both your sense of humour and your overall personality.”
Your more reasonable friend Tom Booker said: “Thanks for sending me that f**king hilarious joke mate, I can see why it’s been shared by millions of people. It reminds me of how stupid Francesca is.”
