    Good joke people need to stop getting upset about anything that is a little taboo these days it's annoying.

    Pretty tacky.

    Humor is a lost art.

    I like it. Logically speaking, there is a thin line separating this from reality. A) Dogs love people & B) We haven't tried to teach dogs how.

    That's literally it. The absurdism is that it's almost reasonable the MORE you think about it. It's not even a dark joke. The people want to commit suicide, the dog is helping.

    Making people without a sense of humor upset is hilarious. More hilarious that that tweet, which was chuckle-worthy at best.

    As someone who thinks about things of that nature on a daily basis, I disagree.

    Not funny. Death is serious.

    Did you guys think it was funny when a privileged white guy wore an "America 1st" trunks with a wall on it, against a man from Mexico?

    I've been suicidal, but I don't find it offensive at all. It's just not funny. No big deal.

    It's really not even a funny joke to begin with


    I don't mind a good witty suicide joke but this one isn't really that funny.

    My sister committed suicide, but this didn't offend me, other than by how unfunny it was.
