    I'm not upset but don't find it funny.
    My uncle killed himself and seeing how that changed all my family forever can't find things like that funny.

    Nah
    Its not edgy, clever, or witty enough.
    It's neither funny or offensive. It's just bland.

    It would be hilarious if it was linked to health insurance, which is a real issue in America.
    I would combine two jokes into one if I was tweeting that image.

    Can't afford hospital bills? No worries!
    New program provides Americans with suicide assistance dogs.

    It's a douche bag thing to do, but I am not the least bit bothered. I outsource remedies to this kind of thing to Karma. Karma is relentless, works 24-7 365, and best of all, works for free. And in this age, Karma is fucking fast.

    There are thousands of people that will make it their life mission to get all up in this shit. They will find out who posted it. Where they live, where they work, and what companies their employer does business with. Then come the boycotts. Parents and relatives of suicide victims will be lined up like Orcs on a middle earth battlefield.

    Then it goes viral. And whoever put this up there will find their life altered in ways they never intended. Then they will pull out their own victim card, and the mass of 'it's just a fucking joke' and 'free speech' zealots with hours of time to spare will rush in to assist.

    This will go on for about 9 seconds until the next thing hits. And the circle of dog shit will continue.

    lol the American first guy got his ass beat by the Mexican fighter seems like it hurt his message.

    Eh as someone that thinks about suicide on a daily basis, it doesn't offend me. It's not the funniest thing they've ever done, but anyone that gets offended at that is a pussy.

    I've known a few people that have commited suicide. It sucks, happens. Not every story is happy

    But making smiles out base humor is the best kind of alchemy for coping with an unhappy ending. Why should anyone walk on eggshells in a post-modernist wet dream?

    • Gave me a slight smirk but I lost a great friend to suicide 10 years ago. I'm over it I suppose but I imagine that tweet would devastate his family

    Tweet not fucked up but your comment sure is. I kind of hope you get mangled in a car accident this afternoon and never walk again.
