4. so you think good comedy consists of tricking a nurse

in one of the most stressful and demanding jobs, in a horrific working environment, into making a mistake that could lead to her losing her career and definitely would lead to her being castigated and ostracized by her co-workers...and then publishing her mistake for all the world to hear and see, ensuring her life is no longer private, her humiliation worldwide and career ruined?

Nice sense of humor you've got there.

Pranking a public figure into public humiliation is one thing. Sarah Palin chose to be out there.

Pranking a private person working in an exhausting job where mistakes can lead to lost lives and ruined careers... into a mistake that certainly would cost her career -- I don't care that the hospital released a statement after the fact saying the nurses involved wouldn't be punished; that clearly was pr and cya. There are forms of punishment that can't be measured the way firing can.

That is not humor.
That is vicious, mean-spirited and cruel.
