6. Threatening violence against an animal is never humorous. This sort of thing can only make actual
violence against animals a little more acceptable to some.

I realize it was meant as a joke, but find it no more funny than threatening to kill a child.

13. It's not funny. If you wouldn't show the same picture with a child instead of the dog, why is it ok
Edited on Mon Jul-13-09 08:45 PM by lindisfarne
with the dog - or any animal? Why is it ok to threaten to harm an animal, even as a joke?

There are too many people out there already who think it's ok to beat & hurt animals. This sort of thing just subtlely endorses that sort of thing, and leads others to think it's ok, too.

16. No I didn't. I don't like the method. Cruelty to animals is far too big of a problem in this country
and there's no point in doing things which even subtlely endorse it.

19. It's called black comedy...
Black comedy is a sub-genre of comedy and satire in which topics and events that are usually regarded as taboo are treated in a satirical or humorous manner while retaining its seriousness.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Black_comedy

It's a popular human trait. Read up on it sometime.

20. Would you show the same picture with a human child? If so, why not? Wouldn't that also be
black comedy?

21. Are you for real?
It's a kitten. You're the only one suggesting that it's a substitute for a human baby.

If you can't handle satire and irony, maybe this place isn't for you.

22. I can handle satire and irony.I don't,however, see the value in humor than endorses,however subtlely

cruelty to animals. I personally do not consider this thread to be an example of "black humor".

If you think it would be wrong to start a thread showing a child & threatening harm to the child if X is not done, why is it any different for an animal? It's not humorous with a child, and not any less so with an animal.

I understand it was meant as a joke. But animal cruelty happens, and it's not funny.

26. I didn't suggest it's a substitute for a human baby. Are kittens any less entitled to a cruelty-free
existence? That was my point, and I think it was clear.

Well, you can't unrec it either! I tried, and it said, "You cannot rec your own post." Just another glitch in the system.

23. But... But... Nothing from the Lounge EVER makes it to the Greatest Page!
This idea is flawed from the start! It is doomed to failure AND success! Can't... Process... Futility... and... Utility... at... Same... Time!

27. RECOMMEND! RECOMMEND!
Don't you guys see? The more recs this gets, the more people will see it, and thus more people will unrec it because they have seen it because you rec'd it. Think of the kitteh.











Wrap your mind around that.
