2. If they just left it at Kennedy Curse it would have been funny...
...because the guy did make it to 77.

4. I don't really read that as an attack on anything other than the silly notion of a Kennedy "curse."

13. I think it's a really terrific bit of cartooning
This is not to say I would want the family to have to see it.

Edgy is the word I keep coming back to.

15. I find it offensively tacky, and not one bit funny in the least.

17. There is a time and a place for everything. This was not the time for that political cartoon, and
the place for it is in the trash.

Doh! What a bunch of insensitive dummies who put this one out.

6. Yup.
Almost as stupid as the "they die in threes" nonsense.

10. The point of it is that the "Kennedy Curse" killed an elderly man with cancer
It's just a jab at the whole "curse" thing.

14. Yeah, but it is not funny no matter how you look at it - even from the angle you suggest.

11. I never found the Onion to be particularly funny. Most times their satire is fairly obvious and

shouts out, "this is an Onion satire"

Maybe you need to join Socialites Without Borders

20. It is far too early for this sort of humor...
...but it's funny, anyway. :thumbsup:

Hiding in that utterly tasteless joke is a lovely reminder that Sen. Kennedy lived a full life.
