Disgusting Contractor Supply Store Uses Ex-Wife Murder Sign To Sell Wares

By  | 

ex wife sale sign Just when I think I’ve seen everything there is to see when it comes to rape culture and the patriarchy, some DudeBros decide to up the ante and impress me. And by impress I mean sicken and disturb. A Fargo contractor supply store thought it would be a brilliant idea to advertise their wares with a sign that jokes about murdering one’s ex-wife. Seriously. And considering how serious the issue of spousal abuse is in America, I am furious.

The sign read “EX WIFE SALE DUCT TAPE CHAINSAW SHOVELS.” Yes, this is verbatim:

Facebook

According to the Fargo Forum, the sign was posted outside Joe Rents & Contractors Supply and was thankfully taken down late this week. Christopher Johnson, the executive director of the Rape and Abuse Crisis Center of Fargo-Moorhead, says that when he called the store Thursday afternoon to complain, he was told that the sign had already been removed:

“We’re proud to be part of a community that does not tolerate this kind of humor,” Johnson said.”

That may very well be true, but he is unfortunately also from a community where at least one business thinks this is a perfectly reasonable way to advertise contractor equipment. You know, the same type of equipment men regularly use to murder their wives, girlfriends and children with, at what some organizations call epidemic rates in America.

The Fargo Forum went on to say that they contacted the store, and spoke to someone claiming to be a manager who would only identify as “Curtis.” The man, who was later identified as Curtis Renner, told them that they took down the sign due to an influx of phone calls, but that he felt most of them were “positive” and he didn’t think the sign was offensive. Because of course he didn’t.

Johnson had some strong words for anyone who thinks this is “just a joke.”

“But it’s not just a joke. It’s a pretty strong statement,” he said.

“When people make light out of domestic violence or when people try to find humor in domestic violence,” Johnson said, “I think it’s our way as a society to try to overlook the violence and the pain and the injustice.”

I know this isn’t strictly parenting-related, but the problem of spousal abuse (both by husbands and wives) is a major issue that impacts children everywhere. Making light of it only compounds the problem.

    Who…wha…why…what the hell!?!! Okay, yes, good job, you may have referenced a movie. Here is a fucking Toll-House chocolate chip cookie. But murder ain’t funny except for very specific times in specific works of fiction, and that even depends on one’s sense of humor! You are sick, twisted, and fucking ignorant, signposter, and need to take a long walk off a short plank.

      Satire:

      noun
      1.
      the use of irony, sarcasm, ridicule, or the like, in exposing, denouncing,or deriding vice, folly, etc.

      And they’re not exposing, denouncing, or decrying anything. They GENUINELY think this is funny. Satire would be someone mocking the kind of redneck guy who would post this and tell people who didn’t laugh they had no sense of humor.

    • Kalcen

      August 9, 2014 at 9:19 pm

      “And they’re not exposing, denouncing, or decrying anything.”

      Yes they are. They are deriding the act of murder and they are exposing the act of shopping. Both of which can be ironic when viewing this sign, depending on the perspective of the person who is viewing it.

      “Satire would be someone mocking the kind of redneck guy who would post this and tell people who didn’t laugh they had no sense of humor.”

      No, thats not what satire is at all. Satire is 100% dark/inappropriate jokes. If you don’t get how it is funny then listen really hard…THATS FINE. Just move on. You don’t get satire and you never will. Stick to knock knock jokes then, i don’t care.

      August 9, 2014 at 8:13 pm

      Please explain the joke? I don’t get it.

    • Kalcen

      August 9, 2014 at 8:19 pm

      It’s called satire. The joke is the gravity of the presumed action, of killing your wife, but it is obviously not being done as an actual suggestion.

      There are 2 types of funnies in the world: Humorous and satirical. Satire is the humorous taking of not so humorous ideas, like murdering your wife.

      If you don’t get it then that is fine, but that doesn’t make it not funny. It just means you don’t understand satire.

    • rockmonster

      August 9, 2014 at 8:24 pm

      I don’t think that word exactly means what you think it means.
      “(uncountable) A literary device of writing or art which principally ridicules its subject often as an intended means of provoking or preventing change. Humour, irony and exaggeration are often used to aid this.”Can you tell me how this provokes change? I honestly would like to know.

    • Kalcen

      August 9, 2014 at 8:34 pm

      Well I’m not sure what word you just defined, it looks like you defined the word “uncountable”.

      But it provokes change because it provokes attention. Think of it more simply, if I constantly barraged you with jokes about how fat you are, there’s a good chance you would decide to lose weight (change).

    • rockmonster

      August 9, 2014 at 8:42 pm

      Uncountable is in parenthesis to denote the type of noun; it’s like air; you can’t say how many airs. There’s also a good chance that you may get a harassment charge for the barrage of fat jokes, or a punch to your genitals, depending on the person and their mood.

    • Kalcen

      August 9, 2014 at 8:45 pm

      But it would still prompt change. Change to the subject or change to the perpetuater, depending on the outcome of the jokes

    • rockmonster

      August 9, 2014 at 8:48 pm

      I think what the site was going for was a change in society, not an individual.

    • Frances Frumpy Mumps Locke

      August 9, 2014 at 9:06 pm

      It would be a prompt change to the amount of teeth you had, methinks. But only if you had the balls/ovaries to say it in real life.

    • Kalcen

      August 9, 2014 at 9:10 pm

      So change then, thank you for agreeing.

      Of which you would then end up in jail. Since we all know that the act of someone saying bad words to you does not give you authorization to become physically violent. And be careful who you assault, you might remove some teeth on the first punch, if your lucky, then you will have the unlucky reality of dealing with them attacking you as well. And when it is all over, you’ll end up in handcuffs and they’ll press charges on you.

    • Frances Frumpy Mumps Locke

    • Kalcen

      August 9, 2014 at 9:27 pm

      If you don’t like the “sick joke” then that is direct proof that you don’t understand satire or dark humor.

      So move on if you don’t like it. Go look up a list of knock knock jokes, thats probably more your speed.

    • whiteroses

      August 9, 2014 at 9:34 pm

      I taught satire at the college level. That’s not what this is. Satire is pretty much anything by Voltaire or Jonathan Swift’s “A Modest Proposal”.

      But extra points for you for insulting my intelligence! Let’s see, next you’ll tell me I’m ugly. Then you’ll move on to “fat bitch”, then you’ll tell me you feel sorry for my husband, then you’ll tell me that you hope my kid gets taken away, then it’s probably back to calling me a fat bitch again. Let’s skip this part of the program, shall we? I’ve heard it all before, and it shows a distinct lack of imagination.

    • rockmonster

      August 9, 2014 at 9:40 pm

      Question real quick, does The Taming of the Shrew count as satire?

    • whiteroses

      August 9, 2014 at 9:43 pm

      Personally, I would classify it more as 16th century screwball comedy with Kate’s speech at the end being the note able difference. I think that’s extremely satirical. ToS is an excellent example of what made Shakespeare a genius- did Kate tame petruchio, or was it the other way around?

      I agree 🙂 it’s a wonderful example of writing.

    • Kalcen

      August 9, 2014 at 9:42 pm

      “Satire is pretty much anything by Voltaire or Jonathan Swift’s “A Modest Proposal”.
      Ah, yes. I forgot that. That no other things have ever been created that are deemed satire, of original creation mind you, since 1729.

      And considering that I don’t know what you look like, what your weight is, who your husband is, if you have children, and your weight again…then it would be illogical of me to comment on those things.

      So I’ll just go with the obvious, you do not understand the humor that is the joke on the sign and you never will. So just move on, go find jokes you do like.

    • rockmonster

      August 9, 2014 at 9:43 pm

      Okay, you haven’t resorted to such things. I like you a little bit.

    • Kalcen

      August 9, 2014 at 10:22 pm

      I know how to be reasonable. I just wish others who argue against me also knew how to be reasonable.

      Instantly being offended by things, without trying to view reality by every single angle, does not make a person reasonable. It means they are prone to jumping to conclusions and viewing things for what they aren’t meant to be…or what they are meant to be. But the question at hand is the “perspective” of the action.

    • Aimee

      August 9, 2014 at 10:27 pm

      Can you explain the perspective from which my joke isn’t funny but the sign joke is? I’m starting to get worried that I am never going to be good at satire jokes. 🙁

    • Kalcen

      August 10, 2014 at 1:50 am

      I will 100% answer your question…I’ve just received alot of comments from others, as well as yourself, and I can’t trace which argument you are actually referencing.

      So if it is not too much trouble for you can you restate your own joke and the I can try to tell you if it is funny or not (dark humor wise) while also trying to tell you how the joke on the sign of the article is also funny (dark humor wise). I am fairly certain though that both answers fall back to it is “dark humor” that makes it humorous.

    • Aimee

      August 10, 2014 at 8:01 am

      My joke is funny, because I joked about you getting killed, but that’s absurd and outlandish because you’re not dead! Haha! Just like abused spouses!

    • Kalcen

      August 10, 2014 at 11:14 am

      “My joke is funny, because I joked about you getting killed, but that’s absurd and outlandish because you’re not dead!”

      That could be a dark humored joke. Of which you didn’t make a joke, you made a dark statement.

      “Haha! Just like abused spouses!”

      Abused spouses does not equal murdered spouses. Of which, abused spouses is not the topic of this article. Stay focused please

    • Aimee

      August 10, 2014 at 12:28 pm

      But I was joking because I’m a pacifist! And like you said, you’re not a misogynist! So if I make jokes about murder and call you a misogynist, those are the opposites of what is literally true, and that’s what you explained to me that irony was! Please try to keep up, haha!

      Also I’m pretty sure an awful lot of murdered spouses were abused first! That’s called escalation! These are precisely the same topic, even according to the writer of the article, and I think she’d probably know, huh?

    • Kalcen

      August 10, 2014 at 4:47 pm

      What are you hoping to gain here?

      I get the joke of the sing, you don’t…we both aren’t moving from those stand points. What else is there left for you to try and get across to me?

      You don’t get the joke, move on.

    • Aimee

      August 10, 2014 at 5:05 pm

      And I’m not harassing you, you are harassing me. The first comment I made on this article was just a blank comment, you then replied to my comment. You started this.

    • Aimee

      August 10, 2014 at 5:18 pm

      What are you hoping to gain from this dialogue?

      You don’t get that spousal murder is not a joke. Just move on. You won’t convince me that it is funny, and you can’t explain to me how a decent human being could find it amusing. SO MOVE ON. Stop beating the dead horse.

      And I’m not harassing you, you are harassing me. I replied to a non-blank comment, which said:

      “Yea, how dare them put up a humorous sign. TOTALY disgusting.

      I bet you’re fun at parties, Frances.”

      You started this by commenting about how hilarious spousal murder is and demeaning the writer for finding it objectionable. You have called me a cunt twice and several other people as well, but think that me responding to you is harassment, which makes sense based on your completely inaccurate descriptions of satire and irony. Buy a dictionary before you log onto the Internet again.

    • Kalcen

      August 10, 2014 at 5:25 pm

      “What are you hoping to gain from this dialogue?”

      This dialogue was started by you. so the only thing I’m hoping is that you stop talking to me

      “You don’t get that spousal murder is not a joke.”

      It is when its done as dark humor. Morbid humor.

      “Stop beating the dead horse.”

      I’m not the one constantly barraging with how stupid you are that you don’t understand the joke, that is what you are doing to me. So I’m not beating the dead horse. you are.

      “And I’m not harassing you, you are harassing me. I replied to a non-blank comment, which said:

      “Yea, how dare them put up a humorous sign. TOTALY disgusting.”

      Hello you moron. That is my own initial comment of which you REPLIED TO. So you are the person perpetuation this harassment. Leave me alone.

      “You started this by commenting about how hilarious spousal murder is and demeaning the writer for finding it objectionable.”

      I didn’t start shit, I made an initial comment on this article of which your opinion is not necessary or valid for a random person’s comment to exist. Of which, if you don’t like the comment then move on. Stop beating the dead horse.

      “You have called me a cunt twice and several other people as well,”
      If you don’t like being called a cunt then stop acting like one.

      Here is the final level of where we both stand, of which you are too stupid to understand:

      I get the joke of the sign, you do not. End of story.
      Leave me alone. Go harass someone else.

      August 10, 2014 at 5:41 pm

      No one is making you talk to me. wait, AM I? Whoa! Haha! Ironic!

      Wow! I’m glad you’re not barraging me with insults while telling me I’m a cunt and to dumb to get the joke! That sounds like it wouldn’t be nice, gosh!

      I didn’t realize you expressing an opinion on an article was OK, but me expressing an opinion on your opinion was harassment! Wow! That’s scary!

      I’m really glad we have you here to explain how using degrading words like “cunt” isn’t misogynistic and satire both is and isn’t dark humor and how harassment is responding to comments but it isn’t responding to comments while calling people whores and cunts! Thanks for being here to explain!

      P.S. So are you a gay man or a married guy with a breastfeeding wife? Super confused over here, haha!

    • Aimee

      August 10, 2014 at 5:53 pm

      August 10, 2014 at 5:59 pm

      “Conversely, if you want me to shut up, stop replying to me with your inane justifications for taking joy in the suffering of women.”
      You initially responded to my comment on the article, of which my comment was TO the article and not to a person.

      So if I don’t respond to you, then that is rude. Thats like a person directly tries to talk to you but instead ignores you.

      So just stop talking to me. What are you gaining here? What else do you have to say to me that you haven’t already said.

      “You think everyone around you is a moron and that we are all uneducated twats because we don’t find this sign amusing and had the audacity to say so.” I think that all people around me that argue with non-logic and stupidity are indeed morons. Want to prove me wrong? Then argue with logic.

      “We disagreed with what you said and you began name calling”

      I disagree with what you say because what you say is an illogical argument to my logical argument. Want to best me in this argument, then argue logically.

      No, as a survivor of domestic violence I fail to see the joke. But that’s …wait, clearly not just me.

      I do have a child, my weight is irrelevant, and I think that based on previous interaction I can perhaps be forgiven for thinking of you as an uncultured swine. I eagerly await proof that I am wrong.

      “No, as a survivor of domestic violence I fail to see the joke.”

      Unfortunately for yourself, the joke is not about domestic violence. It is about spousal murder.

      “but this is not it, and you insisting that it is doesn’t make it so.”
      It is satire. Not all satire is dark humor, but all dark humor is satire.

      “I eagerly await proof that I am wrong.”

But dont find it funny or appropriate. Your assumption that because we find it offensive or inappropriate means we is stupid is ridiculous.

      It is completely inappropriate, just like all dark humor. And “funny” is dependent on the perspective of the individual. If you don’t find dark humor funny, then that is fine. Nothing is wrong with that, but just move on. You aren’t going to get it, because it’s not for you, any level of continually commenting isn’t going to help you to get it.

    • Kalcen

      August 9, 2014 at 10:09 pm

      I didn’t reference anything, I gave one example. Of which the probability of that example actually happening over other examples, lunching punching someone in the face, is more prone to happen.

    • Elizabeth Wakefield

      August 9, 2014 at 10:12 pm

      No. I would bet on the face punching over the losing weight.

    • Kalcen

      August 10, 2014 at 2:04 am

      Of which are both change. So the aspect of ridicule still accomplishes its task of change.

      Thank you for agreeing with me.

    • Elizabeth Wakefield

      August 10, 2014 at 9:21 am

      Goodness gracious. I am merely commenting on the fact that the change you originally stated was that the person would lose weight. I find that to be a patently false statement. Shaming of weight does not usually cause weight to be lost.

    • Kalcen

    • Kalcen

      August 9, 2014 at 9:07 pm

      Per the definition of “satire” from Dictionary(.com) (not sure where you get your definition)

      noun

      1.

      the use of irony, sarcasm, ridicule, or the like, in exposing, denouncing,or deriding vice, folly, etc.

      Then I would be correct in labeling the joke at hand as satire.

    • NotTakenNotAvailable

      August 9, 2014 at 9:11 pm

      You yourself stated that there is no irony, and I doubt you have a case for use of sarcasm or ridicule either. So you essentially used your own definition to fuck your original argument in the ass with no lube.

    • Kalcen

      August 9, 2014 at 9:16 pm

      “You yourself stated that there is no irony,”

      To my perspective there is no irony. But that doesn’t mean it is not ironic. If I was legitimately thinking about killing my spouse and then saw this sign, that would be ironic. OR if I was thinking about how I needed to pick up duct tape or a shovel on my way home, and then saw this sign, then that would also be ironic. Irony is not a necessity for a joke or for satire.

      “So you essentially used your own definition to fuck your original argument in the ass with no lube.”

      You also missed the last half of that definition which has to deal with deriding vice, folly, etc. So considering that the sign can absolutely be ironic and is deriding folly, it then makes it inline with the definition of the word “satire”.

      You’re welcome to go get lube anytime now, it will only make the rest alot easier for you.

      I actually think that true satire, the kind that Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert display, takes an extraordinary amount of talent and intelligence to write and understand. This is a cheap ‘joke’ at the expense of the thousands, if not millions, of women who have suffered spousal or relationship abuse at the hands of their partner.

    • Kalcen

      August 9, 2014 at 9:33 pm

      So yea, I guess satire isn’t all dark then. But that doesn’t mean a dark joke isn’t not under the umbrella term of “satire”. And yea the jokes that Stewart and Colbert write do take alot of intellect to write. Because it’s not about giving a “correct” response, more than it is about showing how amazingly stupid your competition is.

      “of women who have suffered spousal or relationship abuse at the hands of their partner.”

      And yet the joke on hand is not about abuse of a spouse, it is about murder of a spouse

    • Elizabeth Wakefield

      August 9, 2014 at 9:35 pm

      Abuse can very much lead to murder. And I would assume the victims of spousal murder aren’t really around to be offended by the joke. Oh the irony.

    • Kalcen

      August 9, 2014 at 9:39 pm

      “Abuse can very much lead to murder.”

      Sure, no disagreement there. But the joke on hand is about murder, not abuse. So there for the topic of “abuse” is not relevant.

      “And I would assume the victims of spousal murder aren’t really around to be offended by the joke. Oh the irony.”

      That is actually ironic. Lol, see, even you just made a satirical joke.

      August 9, 2014 at 9:42 pm

      Unfortunately for many women who escaped abusive relationships, they are very much aware of the fact that they could have been the “ex wife” in the joke. You cannot separate abused women from the murdered ones because we are dealing with the same situations.

    • Kalcen

      August 9, 2014 at 10:28 pm

      “Unfortunately for many women who escaped abusive relationships, they are very much aware of the fact that they could have been the “ex wife” in the joke.”

      And being a murdered ex-wife is not specific to being an ex-wife. If you are angry about some ex-wifes out there ending up being killed then you are on the wrong forum. This article is not about murdering your ex-wife.

      “You cannot separate abused women from the murdered ones because we are dealing with the same situations.”
      Factually incorrect. It is not the same situation at all. Abused spouses are dealing with physical/emotion abuse that still leaves them alive. Murdered spouses don’t deal with anything since they are dead, but if they could deal with anything it would be dealing about being murdered. (that last sentence itself is also dark humor. How can a dead person deal with anything? They can’t)

    • Aimee

      August 9, 2014 at 10:29 pm

      Oh man! That makes so much sense! Like, no one who’s ever been abused has ever THOUGHT they might end up as a dead spouse, probably! So my joke IS funny because you aren’t actually a dead misogynist! Haha! Oh man! Awesome 🙂

    • Kalcen

      August 10, 2014 at 1:47 am

      “Like, no one who’s ever been abused has ever THOUGHT they might end up as a dead spouse, probably!”
      Yet the factual accuracy of the joke is that of dead ex-spouses, not abuses ex-spouses. So it doesn’t matter if you don’t get it at all, it just means you don’t get it.

      SERIOUSLY you moron. If you dont get dark humor THEN THAT IS FINE. Just move on, you will never get it. Stop trying to find validation or understanding through those that you argue with about the humor at hand, YOU WILL NEVER GET IT.

    • Aimee

      August 10, 2014 at 8:00 am

      Wait, I thought the joke was about outlandish absurdity because this would never actually happen! Do you mean to say that people DO ACTUALLY kill their spouses! And that’s the funny implication of this sign that you are laughing at!

      I think that’s kind of terrible. And I like dark humor, as you would be able to tell if you had gotten my funny joke. But I guess you just don’t understand satire, haha. Or is it irony! Oh geez. Well, it was funny, anyway! *I* get it, at least. And I’m pretty sure it’s funny now, based on all of your clarifications. So thanks! 🙂

      This article is about a crappy joke made that references the abuse and murder of women, whether they be girlfriends, wives, or ex-wives.

      Secondly, abused spouses often lead to murdered spouses. I was tormented by my ex-boyfriend and I am very much aware of the fact that at any point in time, I could have been a victim of murder. But just because I wasn’t murdered doesn’t mean that I can’t fight for relationship abuse to be stopped. The fact that you don’t connect the two things is absolutely asinine.

      Incorrect again, you are good at this, the article is about a joke about murdering an ex-wife, not about abusing an ex-wife. And abusing and murder are two separate things.

      “Secondly, abused spouses often lead to murdered spouses.”
      Incorrect. Cause the act of being abused and the act of being murdered are two separate things.

      “But just because I wasn’t murdered doesn’t mean that I can’t fight for relationship abuse to be stopped.”

    • O'Really

      August 10, 2014 at 10:27 am

      To be fair, “A Modest Proposal” certainly involves murder. I would take that to indicate quite definitively that murder and satire aren’t mutually exclusive.

      This particular joke, however, isn’t nearly that sophisticated. It actually reminds me of the old “House of Tommorrow” Tex Avery Cartoon. The cartoon showed each household object and how they were specialized for the kid, wife, husband, “and for the mother-in-law.” The mother-in law versions were always outrageously awful (i.e. the medicine cabinet was filled with bottles of poison). I imagine there were some mother-in-laws back in the day who didn’t find it one bit funny, but that doesn’t mean it wasn’t a joke.

      Was the sign inappropriate? Yep. Was it a weak-ass joke? Yep. The person who put it up won’t be starring on comedy central anytime soon. But it WAS meant as a joke and they took it down the minute they realized it upset people. The only thing they’re guilty of is a combination of stupidity and poor taste. To claim they’re advocating spousal abuse and murder is a tad excessive.

    • whiteroses

      August 10, 2014 at 11:09 am

      The reason why “A Modest Proposal” works as satire is because the mass killing of babies is so far out of left field, and something that nobody would ever do. Whereas this sign is something that happens all the time, therefore- not satire.

      It doesn’t really matter if it was meant as a joke. The fact is, it should never have happened and were well within our rights to find it offensive.

    • JessBakesCakes

      August 10, 2014 at 12:03 pm

      I should have been more clear when I said that satire =/= murder jokes. Not all satire involves murder jokes. I’m not saying they’re *advocating* spousal abuse and murder, but that is the reference they’re making; it’s certainly implied. For women like me and countless others who have been abused sexually, physically, and/or emotionally, this isn’t funny and it’s really offensive.

      Like I mentioned to someone else, this isn’t like the five old ladies who left the theatre when I went to see Wolf of Wall Street, because of the excessive, record-breaking use of the word “fuck”. If you pick up a book (or something like A Modest Proposal, for instance) and find it offensive, you can put it down. But if you drive past this store and see this sign, you can’t necessarily just “stop” passing it. You can certainly find alternate routes, or not shop there, but this is kind of in-your-face. It’s not everyone’s type of humor, and to me, there’s a pretty good chunk of us who would be offended, so maybe it should have occurred to these shop owners/workers not to put that sign up.

    • Kalcen

      August 9, 2014 at 9:02 pm

      There is no irony. Cause one of the ways that you could realistically kill a person and dispose of them could involve duct tape, chain saws, and shovels.

      The only way that would be ironic is if someone was driving down the road, realistically thinking about how to kill their wife, and then saw this sign. That person could then claim it was ironic.

      And I wouldn’t necessarily say it is exaggerating anything. I would just say it is making a dark humored joke to 1. Get a persons attention 2. Create a laugh 3. Remind a person that this store has duct tape, chainsaws, and shovels. Maybe it is exaggerating the fact that they are having a sale? Idk.

    • Aimee

      August 9, 2014 at 9:05 pm

      Oh, it’s not exaggerating or ironic – so it’s not satire, then, I guess? Or it’s only satire if someone really were a murderer? Because dark humor and satire aren’t the same thing, by any definition I can find online. I guess I still just don’t get it, haha!

      The “laugh” is that it is A. Dark and B. absurd. I would never kill my spouse, so therefor how absurd the presumption is then becomes a dark joke. Since the act of murder indeed a dark act, but the absurd inclination towards it (knowing I know I will never do it) then illicit humor. Satire is dark humor.

      Ah, okay! So you laugh at things that are horrible and disgusting because you wouldn’t do them, and that is the humorous part? Well, I’m kind of a pacifist, so it would be really funny if I said that I ought to rip your head off and shit down your neck, you vile, misogynist piece of shit who takes pleasure in the concept of the murder of women that happens all across the country, every day, because in your idiotic isolated fucking bubble you can laugh at the pain, terror and suffering that these women go through, because you can’t trigger the one misfiring neuron in your miniscule brain that controls your empathy to think that just because YOU wouldn’t do something horrible, no one else would do something so horrible, except for all those cases listed in the original post that I guess you couldn’t fucking read even before I deservedly put your eyes out with a stick. Right? Haha! How was that for satire? Oh my god, I bet you’re laughing your ass off over there! Tell me if you liked my joke?

      Oh, and can you find me a definition somewhere that says satire is dark humor? I can’t find one anywhere! I’m starting to think one might not exist at all! Thanks 🙂

      “So you laugh at things that are horrible and disgusting because you wouldn’t do them, and that is the humorous part?”

      Exactly, but this also highlights the fact that you do not understand dark humor. But you are absolutely wasting your time being offended by dark humor. Because of the the aspect of dark humor, that makes those dark jokes even more hilarious, is that morons actually get offended by them.

      “misogynist”

      I never once made a comment about hating or mistreating women, so this word is inaccurate.

      “who takes pleasure in the concept of the murder of women that happens all across the country,”

      More nonsense. I don’t take pleasure in murder, I take pleasure in a joke. If I took pleasure in a murder then I would go comment positively on an article about spousal murder. This article is not about spousal murder, it is about a dark humored joke and a sale. Of which you do not understand, so just move on.

      “Haha! How was that for satire?”

      it wasn’t satire. You just went on a tirade like a crazy cunt spouting nonsense. I bet you’re really fun at parties.

      “Oh my god, I bet you’re laughing your ass off over there!”

      I’m not

      “Tell me if you liked my joke?”
      You didn’t tell a joke.

      You still don’t seem to get that it is a joke. Of which if you do not think it is a joke, then that just means you do not understand dark humor, which is fine. Just move on, it’s not your cup of tea.

      Kind of seems like creating an ad that launches your company into national prominence for promoting spousal abuse such that you get multiple calls a day from people requesting that you come to your damn senses is not in fact a very “intelligent” way to encourage customers to have a positive association with your store, but what do I know, I’m just a vagina who somehow acquired the power of speech.

      ” an ad that launches your company into national prominence for promoting spousal abuse”
      You show your own stupidity. If anything this company is highlighting spousal murder, not spousal abuse. This is the underlying problem with people like you, you read one thing and view it as another thing.

      Dude, I’ve got a sleeping baby on me, and I’m bored, so I’ve got to ask: I looked at your disquis profile and you have hundreds and hundreds of negative, argumentative interactions online with people which frequently end with you calling people stupid. You clearly spend a great deal of time on this even though based in what I read, you never actually present a convincing enough argument to change anyone’s mind or get any respect. What are you getting out of these interactions? What’s the appeal of this?

      Please explain how mine is not a joke when the one in the sign is! I want to get better at jokes! And I would never actually be violent, so mine is basically exactly the same as the sign. Why is that one funny but mine isn’t? 🙁 I don’t get it.

      August 9, 2014 at 10:02 pm

      Oh, and I’m glad to hear you aren’t a misogynist! Like, it’s funny to think about women getting beaten up and murdered but at least you’d never actually do anything bad to a woman! I bet a guy who actually hits his wife or girlfriend has never high-fived you over a “get back in the kitchen” joke and felt better about his abuse, because he’d know that you were really not a misogynist like he is. I’m really glad to hear that you’re not one because PHEW! Am I right!

      “Like, it’s funny to think about women getting beaten up”

      The joke at hand has to deal with woman being murdered, not beaten.

      “but at least you’d never actually do anything bad to a woman!”

      Why would I? I dont see women as a threat nor do I see a necessary reason to physically assault them, other than defending myself.

      “I bet a guy who actually hits his wife or girlfriend has never high-fived you over a “get back in the kitchen” joke and felt better about his abuse, because he’d know that you were really not a misogynist like he is.”

      100% irrelevant. If you want to comment on an article fo men who spousal abuse there girlfriends, then go do that. This article is about a proposed a joke about spousal murder. So you are on the wrong forum.

    • Aimee

      August 10, 2014 at 8:10 am

      Oh gosh, sorry! I should have said, “It’s funny to think about women getting murdered” – you’re right! A dead woman is probably like ten times more hilarious than a battered woman.

      Oh man! I’m on the wrong forum! I thought this was a woman’s forum where a lot of my friends have actually experienced domestic violence and even feared for their life in the exact way that this sign implies someone might have to fear for their life! And men who beat their wives and men who kill them are probably never the same guys and one situation probably never escalates into the other! OUTLANDISHLY ABSURD, right? I would hate to think that I was the one on the wrong forum! What a mess!

    • Kalcen

      “Oh gosh, sorry! I should have said, “It’s funny to think about women getting murdered” – you’re right! A dead woman is probably like ten times more hilarious than a battered woman.”

      Of which, both topics can actually be humorous if a funny DARK HUMORED joke is made about them. Just like the sing, for example.

      “Oh man! I’m on the wrong forum!”

      This is correct

      “I thought this was a woman’s forum where a lot of my friends have actually experienced domestic violence and even feared for their life in the exact way that this sign implies someone might have to fear for their life!”

      I dont know what article you think you are on, but this specific webpage (article) is about a joke. Not about spousal abuse.

    • Aimee

      August 10, 2014 at 12:30 pm

      Wow, the writer of the article keeps talking about how this is about abuse! Good thing you’re here to explain to her what she wrote about! Otherwise people might get awfully confused, haha!

      Since it’s so funny to think about women getting murdered, why isn’t it funny to think about you getting murdered? Since both things haven’t happened to either me (a woman) or you (you)? Is it because you’re not a woman? I don’t understand the difference! Just like my joke, for example!

      Misogyny is not always outward. It can be rooted deeply because of male privilege. Also, calling someone that c-word you used is pretty damn misogynistic if you ask me. Or most other women.

      “Misogyny is not always outward. It can be rooted deeply because of male privilege.”

      “Also, calling someone that c-word you used is pretty damn misogynistic if you ask me.”

      It’s misogynistic to you, it’s accurate to me. Of which being called a “cunt” is not specific to you being a woman.

    • whiteroses

      August 10, 2014 at 11:03 am

      Calling someone a “cunt” is an insult, of which we all get pissed off. And you’re either gay (as you claim here) or married to a woman (as you claim in the other thread) but you can’t be both, of which it is impossible. I mean, I suppose you could be bi, but I think it’s more likely you’re just making shit up.

      Of which nothing I’ve said or proposed is that of treating women like shit or abusing them. So you are factually incorrect in your own use of words.

      I only admitted that a joke was indeed funny. A joke does not equal mistreating women.

      “Calling someone a “cunt” is misogynist behavior, whether you believe it is or not.”

      Not its not. Calling someone a cunt, because they act like a cunt, is just called “being accurate”.

      “Why are you still here?”

      Really? You are the one that is perpetuating this entire thing. I made a base comment, and we are where we are now because of your several replies to my base comment.

      “We all understand the joke.”

      By the very testaments of yourself and others, you do not get the joke

      “We don’t like the joke.”

      That is extremely clear

      “You have spent the past 20 hours trying to convince us that we are all wrong”

      100% incorrect. I have spent the past 20 hours commenting to the replies of my intitial comment which wasn’t to any person, it was to the article.

      If you don’t think the joke is funny, then that is fine. REALIZE, IT IS FINE THAT YOU DON”T GET THE JOKE. But stop commenting to me about how I am wrong, when the perspective of the situation calls into question individual perspective and the fact that I didn’t reply to Elizabeth Wakefield’s initial comment to the article, but that Elizabeth Wakefield replied to my initial comment. YOU started this.

      “Just because we don’t agree with you doesn’t mean that we are harassing you.”

      Disagreement does not equal harassment. Continuing to respond OVER AND OVER AND OVER about your continued opinion of not agreeing IS harassment. You made your point of not agreeing with me and not understanding the joke several hours ago…………so why are you still replying to me? What is there for you to gain at this point?

    • Elizabeth Wakefield

      August 10, 2014 at 6:25 pm

      Getting the joke and liking the joke are two entirely different things.

      I ‘get’ Dane Cook’s jokes, but I don’t find them humorous.

      Every commenter who is acting like they don’t get the joke, very much DO get the joke because we are discussing it elsewhere…but again, that does not mean that they like it.

      When you comment on an article you are inviting other people to discuss an issue with you. Unfortunately people do not get to pick and choose when other people respond. I’m sorry if that bothers you, but it is a fact of the matter when dealing with the internet and the public forum.

      “Getting the joke and liking the joke are two entirely different things.”

      Fact

      “I ‘get’ Dane Cook’s jokes, but I don’t find them humorous.”

      I am the same, I don’t find Dane Cook funny at all but I do get that he is telling jokes.

      Which leads to the very heart of what is happening here. There is an obvious joke that is being told….but a joke that you don’t get. Which means that you don’t spend hours on forums about Dane Cook trying to fervently assert your opinion that he isn’t funny. So stop doing it with,

      If you get a joke is being old here, then great. If you don’t particularly think the joke is funny, then great. But what else is there to be said beyond that?

    • Kalcen

      August 10, 2014 at 6:51 pm

      If you got that it was a joke, of which you don’t find humorous but still understood it was a joke, then this entire conversation did not have to go on at all.

      I’m not on a high horse. I’m not incestitantly trying to preach to you that it is funny, I have just expressed my opinion that it is funny (and for the few who asked How is it funny, I’ve tried explaining). You on your high horse has been dragging this out for hours, for the simple idea you made hours ago…which is that you dont like/get the joke.

      “Sooo… Jokes about murdering ex-wives are funny and people should not be offended,”

      Thats the underlying problem here. It is not a joke about murdering your ex-wife, it is a joke about the absurdity of the idea of murdering your ex-wife. If you dont get the joke then that is fine, just move on.

      “while women feeding babies where the men-folk can see them are filthy whores.”

      But any women who does nurse as a public spectacle, is infact a whore.

      “misogynist?”
      You become misogynist in the equal reality that circumstances being equal between men and women, and still have a negative view of women.

      Breatfeeding is not an equal view of men, so therefor calling women who publicly breast feed, a whore does not make my view misogynist….it just means I am capable of viewing an act with unbiased eyes and calling an act for what it is.

    • RW

      August 10, 2014 at 12:29 pm

      I really don’t know why I’m bothering to keep feeding you. Maybe it’s the fact that you are trying to sound so much more intelligent than you really are that makes this all the more entertaining! You seem to derive a massive amount of pleasure from being as hateful and inflammatory as possible while still trying to maintain a façade of intelligence, which sadly can’t be maintained when all you spout is ignorant and uneducated. but who am I to detract from your joy? Carry on!

      It doesn’t matter if you consider the joke to be absurd or not, and the point isn’t that it’s a joke. No shit it’s a joke. The problem is that in a lot of cases it is a very real scenario for someone to premeditate a murder and purchase the things they think they will need. There are people out there who don’t need much of a push to go for it, so while the odds are slim, endorsing that mentality is not helpful at best, inflammatory at worst. Then there’s the family and friends of victims of this very type of murder who somehow fail to see the humour in it. It’s antagonistic and unnecessary, and clearly enough people objected to have it removed. Defending off-colour jokes just makes you look like a dick. Doing it on a website that is clearly aimed at women with children just to get a rise out of readers makes you a misogynist. If you don’t get that, that is fine, just move on.

      You like citing dictionaries so much, maybe actually look up words before you throw them around with such authority.

      Whore: noun ˈhȯr, ˈhu̇r

      Definition of WHORE
      A woman who engages in sexual acts for money : prostitute; also : a promiscuous or immoral woman.

      A woman who is breastfeeding in public – whether as a spectacle or not – does not fit this description. Nor does it fit the definitions of promiscuity or immorality (unless you are a tub-thumping christian who thinks all potentially bared skin and/or perceived sexual bits are diiiiiirty). But since being hateful purely for the sake of it seems to bring you such joy, it’s understandable why you’re trying to get a rise out of the people on this site by using the most antagonizing words you can think of while still attempting to sound intelligent (failed, by the way). So yes, labeling a woman a whore and throwing out a sexually explicit insult because you don’t like what they are doing is misogynistic.

      Yes, yes, I am a misogynist because I have a negative view of women. Oh wait. What? Because women can breastfeed and men cannot it is unfair for them to do it in public, therefore advocating it is misogynistic? Once again, revisit the definition, my friend.

    • Kalcen

      August 10, 2014 at 4:46 pm

      “It doesn’t matter if you consider the joke to be absurd or not, and the point isn’t that it’s a joke. No shit it’s a joke.”

      Wow, an actual statement commenting on that the joke was indeed….a joke. That took a while.

      “so while the odds are slim, endorsing that mentality is not helpful at best, inflammatory at worst.”

      Now you show your own lack of intelligence. It’s not endorsing a mentality of murder, it is only endorsing a mentality of humor. It is a joke, not an assertation or a suggestion of murder. A joke, thats it.

      “Because women can breastfeed and men cannot it is unfair for them to do it in public,”

      Yet the act of condoning breast feeding, but not as a public spectacle, does not make a person misogynistic.

    • Jessica Johnson

      August 10, 2014 at 1:18 pm

      Whore:

      a woman who engages in promiscuous sexual intercourse, usually for money; prostitute; harlot; strumpet.

      So you gotta tell me, how does feeding a baby make one a whore exactly? Maybe I really did miss out by not breastfeeding my kids. I mean, no one told me that by breastfeeding them I’d get sex and money. I really should have tried harder. 🙁

      http://literarydevices.net/satire/:

      There are numerous examples of satire in Mark Twain’s Huckleberry Finn. He uses satire as a tool to share his ideas and opinion on slavery, human nature and many other issues that afflicted American society at that time.

      Below are a few citations from the novel that demonstrate satire:

      “What’s the use you learning to do right, when it’s troublesome to do right and isn’t no trouble to do wrong, and the wages is just the same?” (Chap 16)

      “There warn’t anybody at the church, except maybe a hog or two, for there warn’t any lock on the door, and hogs likes a puncheon floor in summer-time because it’s cool. If you notice, most folks don’t go to church only when they’ve got to; but a hog is different.” (Chap 18)

      “The pitifulest thing out is a mob; that’s what an army is–a mob; they don’t fight with courage that’s born in them, but with courage that’s borrowed from their mass, and from their officers. But a mob without any man at the head of it is beneath pitifulness.” (chap 22)

      LOL ALL THAT DARK HUMOR ABOUT MURDER. Mark Twain, whatta guy.

      August 9, 2014 at 10:25 pm

      Your link didn’t work. It opened up the portal of the website, but the site itself said 404 error.

      “There are numerous examples of satire in Mark Twain’s Huckleberry Finn.”

      Satire isn’t only found or created in times of 1884 and earlier. Satire can be created every day.

      “He uses satire as a tool to share his ideas and opinion on slavery, human nature and many other issues that afflicted American society at that time.”

      Sort of exactly the point I’ve been trying to create. The offense at hand is so absurd (you mention slavery and the article is about spousal murder) that instead of talking about how absurd it is, you instead turn it into a joke that makes it even more glaringly obvious that it is absurd.

      “Seriously, this is not about fucking getting away with fucking murder.”

      I never said it was

      “This is about spousal fuckiing murder.”

      Incorrect. It is about a store promoting a sale they are having on certain items, that ironically are commonly used in the act of murder, and then using that knowledge to spin a dark joke.

    • Aimee

      August 9, 2014 at 9:24 pm

      See, you said before that you couldn’t think of any examples of irony in the joke and now you have one here! I still don’t get the irony in the sale items though? How is a sale on duct tape ironic? That Alanis Morissette song has permanently confused me about irony, I think, haha!

    • Kalcen

      August 9, 2014 at 9:54 pm

      “I still don’t get the irony in the sale items though?”

      Thats because you are either purposefully being obtuse or you don’t know what the definition of the word ironic is.

      “How is a sale on duct tape ironic?”

      Do you need duct tape, are you out? (pretend to think yes)…BUT you don’t need it for murder. So it’s ironic in that yes you do need this item but you don’t need it for the proposed use..that makes it ironic. The act of using a word to convey a meaning that is the opposite of its literal meaning.

      The conveyed meaning is murder, but the literal meaning is that they are having a sale.

    • Aimee

      August 9, 2014 at 9:56 pm

      Oh okay! I guess I didn’t know that the opposite of a sale was murder! That makes sense, since people talk about things being on sale as “a steal”, I guess!

      It sounds like maybe either it’s not ironic, or the opposite of a sale is murder? Or are we still confused about the meaning of irony? Maybe we should ask Miss Wakefield, if she’s still here.

      “”that makes it ironic. The act of using a word to convey a meaning that is the opposite of its literal meaning.”
      That is true, but the other aspect of it is that it also has to have relevance to your situation.

      The opposite of sale being murder is not relevant. But since the sale is advertising that their items of duct tape, chain saw, and shovels are on sale…is relevant.

    • Aimee

      August 10, 2014 at 8:07 am

      So it seems like you’re saying both that it has to be the opposite of the literal meaning AND it has to be relevant – but that in this case it’s NOT the opposite of the literal meaning. It seems kind of like you’re saying it’s not ironic by your own definition! Well, I mean, not “SEEMS”. That’s literally what you’re saying! Haha! Hmmm!

      Aimee, knock the shit off already you fucking cunt.

      It’s a god damn joke, a dark humored joke. Of which you do not get, that is fine. You do not have to understand every joke that graces your existence. Stop fucking berating me about this bullshit. If you don’t get the joke then just move the fuck on.

      Stop berating me because I can see that a joke is being made on the sign that is pictured above. If you don’t get the joke, then clearly its not a joke for you.

    • whiteroses

      August 10, 2014 at 11:22 am

      So I guess you can call people cunts, which we’ve already explained we find offensive, and that doesn’t make you a misogynist? And the fact that we’ve explained to you over and over again that we don’t find this goddamn funny means nothing because we’re clearly just stupid women?

      Dude, if I didn’t know you were serious this would be a satirical master stroke. As it is, it’s just sad.

      WE DONT FIND THIS FUNNY. It doesn’t matter even the slightest bit how much you explain it, we will never find it funny, and because people have different senses of humor this shouldn’t bother you. But for some reason you insist on hanging around and mansplaining to us how stupid we are.

      As I may have mentioned, this isn’t our first rodeo. Just because you say something doesn’t make it true.

      For the final time. If you don’t get the joke of the sign, then that is fine, just move on. The type of humor that is the sign is not the type of humor for you.

    • whiteroses

      No, that’s incorrect. You are demanding that we find it funny, or at least accept that it’s humor, and we refuse to do so. And if you haven’t picked up on it, Aimee does get it. She’s screwing with you. You’re just too obtuse to understand that.

      I am not demanding that at all. 1. it is a form of humor. 2. You don’t get it and you never will 3. The only reason any commenting to me even started out is by assholes who asked “how is this even funny” only to then string me along an a very long tirade of berating me because the fact that they don’t get the joke. Just like yourself.

      If you don’t get it, then I don’t care. But stop commenting to me about how you don’t get it and how you want to belittle me. You’ve made your opinion very clear…you don’t get the joke and you never will get the joke. Great. move on.

    • whiteroses

      August 10, 2014 at 11:33 am

      I don’t have to belittle you. You’re doing that quite well by yourself. We’ve explained more than once that Aimee was making fun of you, you just chose to believe that she was an idiot. That’s your own fault. And if you call someone a “dipshit”, or a “cunt”, then you really can’t blame them for having a bad reaction.

    • Kalcen

      August 10, 2014 at 11:36 am

      “We’ve explained more than once that Aimee was making fun of you, you just chose to believe that she was an idiot.”

      I dont care. Why are you still commenting about this? What is left to talk about it, that you still continue to comment?

      “And if you call someone a “dipshit”, or a “cunt”, then you really can’t blame them for having a bad reaction.”

      Then don’t act like a dipshit or a cunt and you wont be called one. When you berate and belittle people, they tend to have a bad reaction. Act like a civil adult and you will be treated like one. But also again, why are you still commenting about this? What is left for you to get across that you haven’t already tried to get across?

    • whiteroses

      August 10, 2014 at 11:41 am

      Because you don’t get to dictate if I comment, why or how.

So I came in to leave a comment about how i got the joke, then a bunch of trolls came out of hiding to harass me and continual try to assert that it wasn’t a joke.

      “Why are you posing so often?”

      I posted once, on my own. Every reply I’ve done since that, is exactly that…a reply. I will leave once the trolls stop trolling me.

      Hey! That’s not fair! You’re berating me for not getting the sign joke but I can’t ask you questions about you not getting my joke! Free speech! My first amendment rights!

      And you typed a “c” in the word “aunt” again! Oh man, your typing is really not very good sometimes, haha!

      Also you still didn’t point out how irony has to be the literal opposite of something but the sign is not the literal opposite of something but you’re still right on both counts because … well, I guess I’m still not sure why, because you haven’t explained how both can be true and yet also not true!

      I’m factually not berating you for not getting the joke. If I was berating you then I would do to you what you’ve been doing to me, string you along with a barrage of insults.

      If you legitimately don’t get the joke, I can whole heartedly try to explain it to. If you not only don’t get the joke but also don’t want to get the joke, then just leave me alone.

    • Aimee

      August 10, 2014 at 5:10 pm

      Wow, good thing you haven’t insulted me! I knew you meant to call me an aunt instead of a cunt all along!

      I keep trying to have you explain the joke but you keep saying one thing and then something different. First you said literally “Satire is dark humor” and then you said it wasn’t necessarily. Then you said that the sign was ironic because irony is using one thing to mean the opposite, but never clarified how murder is the opposite of duct tape. Then you said the sign was funny because it was absurd, but also that women are murdered like this all the time, which is like the opposite of absurd, haha! And also that my joke was not equally funny to the sign, because my joke was less absurd than the sign, even though I have never actually killed you (right? nope!) and women are killed this way all the time.

      Oh, and how you keep accusing me of harassing you for replying to comments on an article! While replying to my and other people’s comments by calling us cunts! Haha! It’s almost

      “I keep trying to have you explain the joke but you keep saying one thing and then something different.”

      Thats the point that you are refusing to acknowledge, you aren’t actually trying to understand the joke. Like a person who doesn’t understand pie fractions then listens with open ears to the teaching lesson, you are just stringing me along like a troll. Because you aren’t trying to understand, you are just trying to insult….of which you have accomplished.

      I get the joke, you don’t get the joke, you’ve insulted me over and over again….this conversation should be done but you don’t know how to stop beating the dead horse. Move on already.

      August 10, 2014 at 5:30 pm

      “Why don’t YOU move on?”
      I do the adult, responsible thing of acknowleding the act of a person talking to me…and that makes you think I should be the one to move on? If I ignored a person talking to me, then that would be considered rude. Also think about which side you are endorsing, cause the women you are siding with are being bully-ish cunts who don’t know how to move on past the fact that someone as a dissenting opinion than their own.

      “You just have to the last word, but baby doll, you can’t outlast everyone.”

      I don’t have to have the last word. baby doll, I just need people to stop talking to me. Want me to go away? Stop talking to me then.

    • Kalcen

      August 10, 2014 at 6:10 pm

      “Welllllll, if everyone did the adult responsible thing conversations would just never ever end.”

      Um, seriously? The person that starts the conversation is the one who ends it. I didn’t start a conversation with myself, a bunch of cunts started a conversation with myself. So I will stop acknowledging their comments when they stop commenting.

      “You are the one who feels stuck here,”

      I do feel stuck. Because these cunts are trolling me and being cunts and I can’t get a way out of the conversation because they keep being unreasonable. They don’t see the sign as a joke, I do….whoopdie doo. Get over it and move on.

      “so youuuuu can stop talking.”

      Of which I have acknowledged before, it is rude to not acknowledge a person that is directly talking to you. So I can’t stop talking unless I want to be a rude person.

      There are certain “jokes” that are off-limits because they aren’t funny. What do you fail to understand about this truism? This isn’t just spousal abuse…it’s about alluding to cold-blooded murder and then using tools to dispose of a body. Really fucking funny, considering that 1.3 women alone are victims of domestic violence in the U.S. every single year (keeping in mind that the majority of incidents go unreported for fear of retaliation, so there are actually many more episodes of serious violence occurring across the country). In fact, domestic violence is “one of the most chronically under-reported crimes,” according to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence. Thousands of these cases eventually end in murder. In the plainest terms possible: No matter how you attempt to spin it, even hinting at murdering a spouse to sell a product is not funny for the very obvious fact that it’s actually happening in large numbers.

      Forget satire, irony, and any other literary terms…this is just wrong. Do we think making jokes about murdering school-aged kids is funny (a la Sandy Hook or any of the other school massacres that have taken place in the last 10-15 years)? NO. Do we think rape jokes are funny? I sure as hell hope not. There are just some things that sane, reasonable people do not find in the least bit comical. It’s an insult to all of the women and children (as well as some men) who have fallen victim to domestic violence and other types of heinous crimes. But since you are going to continue arguing with posters on a mom blog ad nauseam, I’m sure this will go through one ear and out the other. However, if you really feel like defending this garbage and resorting to calling people “cunts,” go right ahead. It speaks volumes about your character, including the fact that you’ve got a ton of extra time on your hands and that you are almost certainly not a very well-liked person in real-life.

      To your perspective. Thats what you dumbasses don’t get. It is factually a joke, you just don’t get it because it is not your humor.

      Move on already. I understand you don’t get the joke, you understand that I get the joke. We both aren’t move on those standpoints, so move on. There’s nothing left to say about the matter.

      You’re adorable…and that’s meant in a very condescending manner, by the way. Also, are you a gay man, or do you have a wife and kids? Your Disqus profile is all over the place, dude. 😉

      Anyway, yes, we all get that it was supposed to be a joke. The problem is that it failed miserably and is highly offensive to many people. Also, go ahead and answer my previous hypothetical question: Would you place an advertisement that made a crude joke at the expense of the deceased children of Sandy Hook in order to hawk your pathetic products? If the answer is ‘yes,’ then it’s settled that you’re a deluded sociopath. If the answer is ‘no,’ then you’ve contradicted yourself in every single post. Normal people don’t think making dim-witted and obvious (non-satirical) jokes at the expense of people who were murdered are humorous in the least bit. Quality satire in modern media can be found in The Onion or *some* op-ed articles or on Colbert’s show, not on some cheesy billboard outside of a construction supply store. I’m sure the wives of the men who work there are so proud. By all means, though, carry on. It’s fun watching you get so worked up over being wrong about something!

      “The problem is that it failed miserably and is highly offensive to many people.”
      It failing, to your perspective, just means it is not your type of humor.

      “Would you place an advertisement that made a crude joke at the expense of the deceased children of Sandy Hook in order to hawk your pathetic products?”

      I refuse to acknowledge that hypothetical question. I will tell you though that I have heard jokes about Sandy Hook, dark jokes obviously, and I have laughed. Because dark jokes appeal to me, if they don’t appeal to you then this joke on this article is not for you, so stop tripping over it.

      You are exactly right, it is not humorous…it is satire. Which is dark humor. So it is humor, you just aren’t used to this type, which is called satire.

      If you don’t think it’s funny then that fine, but that doesn’t dissolve that it is a funny joke. It’s just a joke that you don’t understand.

      Yes, that person is you. Since not only do you not understand the joke that is on the sign but you also comment so fervently to reassert that fact that you don’t understand the joke. Yet I’m the one who is defending the fact that there is a joke here.

    • Kalcen

      August 10, 2014 at 2:03 am

      “But you haven’t explained yet why the one on the sign is a joke but mine isn’t!”
      Because the sign highlighted a joke that is so outlandishly absurd, that committing that act is so improbable, that is ends up being more of a joke than a reality. However the proposed “joke” that you think you present is actually just a slew of insults. One is based on improbability, the other is based in assumed factuality.

    • Aimee

      August 10, 2014 at 7:48 am

      But that’s confusing. Lots of people kill their ex-wives with the exact stuff mentioned in the sign all the time; but I have never ripped your head off! Or shat down your neck! (I mean, at least, I don’t think so!) So it seems like one of those things is outlandishly absurd, but it’s not the one you think! Haha! Oops!

      “But that’s confusing. Lots of people kill their ex-wives with the exact stuff mentioned in the sign all the time;”

      “but I have never ripped your head off! Or shat down your neck! (I mean, at least, I don’t think so!)”

      What does this have to do with anything?

    • Aimee

      August 10, 2014 at 12:25 pm

      You said the joke was that spousal murder was outlandishly absurd. But now you’re saying that it is funny because women get killed that way all the time! Those two things seem to be the opposite of each other! Since before you said the sign joke was funny because it was absurd, and my joke wasn’t funny because it was “real”, I wanted to point out to you that you’re not dead! So by your standards, my joke is funny! Woohoo!

    • Kalcen

      August 10, 2014 at 4:49 pm

      Get over yourself. You will never understand the joke and you won’t change my stance on understanding the joke. Move on already, stop harassing me.

      “but you commenting back to other people on the same website is not harassment?”

      Thats the point you don’t understand. I’ve never commented back to someone else’s initial comment, I’ve replied back to replies on my own initial comment.

      Since you are so proud of your proposed joke, then you are welcome to explain it to the vapid individual who does not understand it. The difference is that I still have a mind to understand something that I do not inherently understand, and therefor do not inherently view it as “not humorous”. Just cause I don’t get your joke does not make it “not humorous”, it just means it flew over my head….so I am very willing to hear the reason why your joke is indeed a joke.

It’s apparently funny, because why would the British empire at that point be afraid of anything? They were what like America was now, apparently (also found my old notebook.

      August 9, 2014 at 9:26 pm

      Wow, haha, you read her name as far as Elizabeth but didn’t read the Wakefield part! That is sure ironic! Or wait. Is it satire? I’m so confused, omg!

      Um clearly I saw the word “wakefield” since I type it into my reply.

    • Aimee

      August 9, 2014 at 9:54 pm

      Haha! Oh man! I guess maybe you didn’t know that when someone doesn’t respect you at all as a human being, they’d rather be called “Miss Theirlastname” than by their first name like you deserve to be on equal footing with them! That’s so satirical!

    • Kalcen

      August 9, 2014 at 10:04 pm

      So now, according to your responses, the act of calling a person Mr./Mrs. (Insert Last Name) isn’t just stupid it is also satirical?

      How daft are you? I call people Mr./Mrs. (Insert Last Name) as a show of either respect or neutrality.

    • Aimee

      August 9, 2014 at 10:07 pm

      Oh, I thought you didn’t know that calling people Miss Lastname was the proper thing to do because you were awfully confused by who Miss Wakefield was when she asked you to call her that! I guess maybe you do know how to use Miss/Mr./Ms. but you just can’t read, maybe? Who knows, haha!

      “Oh, I thought you didn’t know that calling people Miss Lastname was the proper thing to do because you were awfully confused by who Miss Wakefield was when she asked you to call her that!”
      I’m still confused here. Are you referencing that I don’t know about a person who’s last name is Wakefield, in history. Or are you trying to make fun of me that I acknowledged the person that I was talking to as Mrs. Wakefield, in the direct coversation that I was having with a person who’s last name was indeed “wakefield”?

    • Aimee

      August 10, 2014 at 8:04 am

      I was referencing the fact that someone named “Elizabeth Wakefield” said:
      “And…you can call me Miss Wakefield.”

      And then you said:

      “I don’t know who that is.”

      It seemed kind of like you were having trouble with basic reading comprehension! Haha! Since you didn’t know who was talking to you. Whoops!

      if you view it as non-humorous then all that means is that you don’t find satire humorous. It doesn’t mean its not funny, it just means you don’t get it.

      But considering your comment, that means you do find some satire funny. So give me a good example of this, whats the last satirical joke you heard that you thought was funny?

      yes I am aware that there are more than 2 types of jokes.

      But per my personality, and how much I view everyone around me as morons, I particularly enjoy satirical jokes and dark humor jokes. Because the compounded “funniness” value of those jokes become even more for me when I realize that the morons that surround my existence not only don’t get them, but then they get offended by them.

      Want to catch me with a joke that I don’t get, tell me a pun or a knock knock joke.

    • Rebecca

      August 10, 2014 at 12:24 pm

      Satire: the use of humor, irony, exaggeration, or ridicule to expose and criticize people’s stupidity or vices, particularly in the context of contemporary politics and other topical issues.

      How in heaven’s name is implying that one should kill ones ex wife, cut her remains with a chainsaw, place the pieces in a garbage bag and seal the bags with tape exposing and criticizing stupidity or vices?

      What I suggested were off color humor options that did not perpetuate the idea the violence against woman is a fucking joke. Because it isn’t. Never was, and never will be. Do you have any idea how many women lay awake at afraid that what sign is suggesting will happen to them? Do you know what it feels like? The deep, unrelenting fear that someone you once loved and trusted may one day finally snap and not just hurt you but finally kill you?
      I think not, because if you did you wouldn’t be arguing your (incorrect) point.

      “How in heaven’s name is implying that one should kill ones ex wife, cut her remains with a chainsaw, place the pieces in a garbage bag and seal the bags with tape exposing and criticizing stupidity or vices?”
      Because of the exact reality of the joke. It not implying murder….it is implying a joke. A joke. Do you realize the difference? A JOKE. It is not implying a physical act, it is implying A JOKE.

      If you don’t get the joke, then that is fine. That just means it isn’t your humor, move on if you don’t get it.

      “What I do find funny is how you can’t see that you’re drowning in this particular ocean, pal.”

      The opposite of that is actually true. It’s all the people who not only don’t get the joke, but also get offended by it and comment so fervently about it, are the ones that are drowning. The only thing I’m drowning in is butt-hurt responses from people who don’t understand dark humor.

      I also understand that this sign was meant to be in jest. For me, it’s in bad taste and at best disrespectful to women like myself who have lived through spousal rape and abuse.
      To be honest, I don’t really care what you find funny. Everyone (even a caveman like you) is entitled to their opinion. What I do care about is that you won’t let it go and are convinced that you can change all of our minds with your great ability to ‘show us the way’. The fact that it’s not working is the very definition of drowning.

      I’ve never one made a disparaging remark towards women, so there for I am factually not misogynistic.

      “For me, it’s in bad taste and at best disrespectful to women like myself who have lived through spousal rape and abuse.”
      The inherent joke has nothing to do with spouse rape or abuse, so your own personal experience has no validity here.

      “What I do care about is that you won’t let it go and are convinced that you can change all of our minds with your great ability to ‘show us the way’.”
      The interesting point of the matter is that I verified the point of the article which is that it is an interesting, dark, joke. So my point could have been made hours ago and left for dead. YET…there are morons like yourself who feel it is there duty to comment against me, continually telling me that my point of view is the wrong point of view. So who here isn’t letting it go and is actually trying to change minds of others? Cause so far I haven’t started an argument with anyone else, every argument I am commenting on was started with me .

      “Today, there will be no Kool Aid drinking.”

      There is really nothing funny about joking about murder. It is totally inappropriate. Anyone who has ever been the victim of domestic abuse is going to be offended. Anyone who has had someone they care about be the victim of domestic abuse is going to be offended. Many people have been in relationships where they feared for their lives. That isn’t something to be joked about.

    • Kalcen

      August 10, 2014 at 11:19 pm

      “There is really nothing funny about joking about murder.”

      What you mean to say is that according to your perspective, you don’t find it funny. Which is also fine, go find a joke that you do find funny then and put all this attention and effort towards those types of jokes.

      “It is totally inappropriate.”

      EXACTLY. Dark humor is always inappropriate. Of which, if you don’t get it…then it’s not your type of humor. So just move on.

      “Anyone who has had someone they care about be the victim of domestic abuse”

      You and every other stupid cunt can’t focus on the topic. The topic is about a joke…a joke based in dark humor…a dark humored joke about spousal murder, NOT ABUSE. Spousal abuse is irrelevant here.

      “That isn’t something to be joked about.”

      Every single topic of life can be joked about. What makes the difference is whether or not you find it funny. If you don’t find it funny, then you don’t have to burn the town down…just move on and find jokes that you do find funny.

    • C.J.

      August 10, 2014 at 11:36 pm

      You really like to copy and paste don’t you. Murdering one’s spouse or ex spouse stems directly from domestic abuse so therefore related. There are some things in life that are not appropriate to joke about, murder is one of them. It is sick to joke about murder. Are you capable of having a mature discussion. We can disagree without name calling. We have discussions on here all the time where we disagree yet still manage to speak respectfully to each other.

    Sick and tired of people getting so offended by jokes. It is an Fing joke. It would have been just as funny had a female manager or owner put it up as an Ex husband joke.
    They were not making light of domestic violence, they were not degrading anyone, they were telling a joke.
    Get off your soap boxes, get a sense of humour and get a life. I know some present day wives that joke all the time about snuffing out their husband’s ex wife.

      Hey, I think Abbott and Costello were the greatest, Red Skelton was awesome, George Carlin an absolute master. Eddie Murphy sucked on stage, but did okay in movies. Mel Brooks is the God of Humour. But back to George Carlin, he would be the first one to tell you “Lighten up, it’s a fucking joke.”. Mel Brooks was quoted as saying, ” You can rate how humourous you were that day, by the number of people you offended.”
      Humour is humour, if it isn’t your taste, don’t read it, listen to it or watch it. It is a free country. And that goes both ways.

    • Frances Frumpy Mumps Locke

      George Carlin did not hold back a fucking thing. He made a lot of his career out of pointing out how political correctness is bullshit. Darlin, I have pretty much seen every piece of work by Carlin. Mel Brooks made fun of everyone. FFS, he put a black cowboy/sheriff in a KKK outfit.
      George Carlin would be the first to tell you, that it was a fucking joke, get over it!

      Actually yes it does. What you don’t understand is you do not have the right to dictate what others find humourous.

      People who have been victims of domestic abuse or have had someone close to the be victims of domestic abuse are going to be offended. It really was in bad taste. Putting up a sign like that is obviously not good for business either since they took it down after the backlash. Domestic abuse really shouldn’t be joked about. It is a sensitive subject because there is still very little support for abused spouses.

    • Warren Pacholzuk

      August 11, 2014 at 1:04 pm

      Little support? Bullshit.
      Either grow a thicker skin, or hide in a bubble. If we stopped every joke that may offend someone, we are royally screwed.
      No black jokes, no jew jokes, no jokes at all. Don’t like it, don’t read it.

    • C.J.

      August 11, 2014 at 1:13 pm

      You must not have ever been close to someone who was a victim of domestic violence if you think they get enough support. There is a time and a place. Not all jokes belong on every street corner.

    • Warren Pacholzuk

      August 11, 2014 at 2:42 pm

      There is all sorts of support out there for victims of abuse, no matter what the form.
      Domestic abuse has been a topic for a long time now, and has support has been addressed and provided for just as long.
      This whole pc shit has gone way beyond reason.
      Not your humour that’s fine, your offended Im sorry. But it ends there. Others are not offended, others find it funny, and you do not have the right to dictate what others find funny. The thought police you are not.

    • C.J.

      August 11, 2014 at 3:21 pm

      I never told anyone else what they should find funny. Domestic abuse victims do not get enough support. I have seen that first hand with friends. You might think everyone should be able to do whatever they want whenever they want. Not everything is appropriate in all situations.

    • Warren Pacholzuk

      August 11, 2014 at 3:51 pm

      As long as it is within the law, then yes you are free to do whatever you want, whenever you want, whereever you want. And the last time I checked having a sense of humour different than yours was still legal.
      There is plenty of support out there. Unfortunately you cannot force people to get it.

    • C.J.

      August 11, 2014 at 3:57 pm

      Just because something is legal doesn’t mean it is appropriate. Again, I didn’t tell anyone what they can find funny. You obviously haven’t known anyone in that dangerous of a situation.

    • Warren Pacholzuk

      August 11, 2014 at 4:14 pm

      Actually yes I have and we took her and her kids in for awhile. So do not presume to know what I have experience in.
      Again if it ain’t illegal, there is nothing wrong. You do not have the right to label anything inappropriate. You cannot like it, you can hate it. You can not shop there.
      But you ain’t the thought or morals police.

    • C.J.

      August 11, 2014 at 5:22 pm

      Oh please, you are not the police of what other people can think is appropriate.

    • C.J.

      August 11, 2014 at 7:06 pm

      People can not share the same views as you, it doesn’t mean they are wining.

      August 11, 2014 at 10:19 pm

      But my view is that you are whining.

    • C.J.

      August 11, 2014 at 10:28 pm

      I’m not wining, I’m stating my view. Everyone else’s view is just as valid as yours. You have a serious problem with respecting other people’s views. People having different opinions is not a bad thing.

    • Warren Pacholzuk

      August 11, 2014 at 10:44 pm

      I respect other’s views just fine, unless they are fanatically going off the deep end. Which to complain about a joke, is going off the deep end in a big way.

    • C.J.

      August 11, 2014 at 10:47 pm

      The problem is that you think anyone that doesn’t agree with you on any issue is fanatically going off the deep end. People are allowed to not like a joke and they are allowed to voice their opinion about it.

    • Warren Pacholzuk

      August 11, 2014 at 11:06 pm

      Yes, but to think it promotes domestic violence, that it is an attack on women, is going off the deepend.

    • C.J.

      August 11, 2014 at 11:14 pm

      I didn’t say it promotes domestic violence. I said victims of domestic violence would find a joke like that offensive.

    • Warren Pacholzuk

      August 11, 2014 at 11:23 pm

      And though I feel for their hardship, I also feel their feeling offended is irrelevant. Because in this day and age, there is always someone offended by something.
      It is about time people as a whole, grew up, dealt with their issues and stopped be so damn sensitive.

    • C.J.

      August 11, 2014 at 11:29 pm

      Growing up has nothing to do with healing from the scars of domestic abuse. People are allowed to be offended because everyone has a right to their own opinion. It’s not like people are protesting outside the store, it’s a discussion on a mommy board.

    • Warren Pacholzuk

      August 12, 2014 at 12:55 am

      Im talking more about the people from the crisis centre getting all upset about it.
      And yes growing up has a lot to do with it. Soceity today has gotten soft and weak. People have got to get over things better, and stop holding on, to the past. Deal with it and move on. After so long, if someone hasn’t dealt with it, then don’t look for sympathy anymore.

    • C.J.

      August 12, 2014 at 1:01 am

      Not liking a joke is not looking for sympathy. Grown ups feelpain too. Moving on and dealing with it doesn’t mean the pain isn’t still there. It means you go on to have a productive life.

    • Warren Pacholzuk

      August 12, 2014 at 9:14 am

      Yes they feel pain, but soceity seems to think it is okay to never get over it, that it is fine to always have it.
      No it is not.
      People have become weak, because it is acceptable. It is almost like once a victim always a victim. That is horseshit.

    • C.J.

      August 12, 2014 at 10:32 pm

      You and I will have to agree to disagree then. Most people that i know that have been victims are very strong people.

    • Warren Pacholzuk

      August 13, 2014 at 12:44 am

    • keelhaulrose

      August 10, 2014 at 10:05 pm

      Um, actually that would be a coincidence, as you’re claiming your disappearance has nothing to do with Warren’s appearance. It would be “not a coincidence” if you were, in fact, Warren, and your disappearance could be explained by you switching to a different screen name.

      For example: Bruce Wayne and Batman have never been in the same room. If Bruce is not Batman it is purely coincidence that two prominent figures in Gotham have never been in the same place. If Bruce is Batman it isn’t a coincidence they’ve never been seen together because it’s impossible for them to be seen together because they are one and the same.

      Definitions aren’t your strong suit, are they?

    • Kalcen

      August 10, 2014 at 11:12 pm

      “Um, actually that would be a coincidence, as you’re claiming your disappearance has nothing to do with Warren’s appearance.”
      My disappearance? So the aspect of doing anything other than constantly commenting on Disqus is then considered a disappearance?

      Geez, I’m sorry I have a life outside of the internet.

      “by you switching to a different screen name.”

      I am honest to a fault. I do not have an account named “warren”. I only have 1 account of which I am responding to you on that one account.

      “Definitions aren’t your strong suit, are they?”
      Definitions don’t mean shit if you are rambling nonsense to begin with

    • keelhaulrose

      August 10, 2014 at 11:19 pm

      Missed the point, didn’t you?
      My point: you claimed the fact that you stopped posting (aka your “disappearance”) just as Warren started posting is “not a coincidence”.
      I let you know that if you’re saying it’s not a coincidence, which is using your exact words, you are implying you are Warren. I didn’t say you are Warren, I merely pointed out you made the implication yourself by not knowing what a coincidence is.

    Warren / Kalcen are beyond hope. They will never get it, ever, because it hasn’t happened to them. So they can continue their weird and fruitless journey to be keyboard warriors telling us wimmins how to feel. They will never understand that jokes about rape, abuse or murder of women (and these things do happen to women much more than men) normalise and trivialise the widespread attacks against women that are at epidemic proportions. Simply because they don’t have the brainpower to compute the two things. Their brains don’t work beyond, “Well, *I* laughed. Therefore = funny.”

    OMG. What if a MAN told us we should be upset? Would that just blow their little minds?

      And unfortunately your attempt to construct a narrative for what’s going on in my head unsurprisingly falls short of the mark. Although I’ll be the first to admit I have issues, it seems to me that your issues are a hell of a lot worse than mine, but I don’t actually care if you get therapy or not. I simply ask that you bother to educate yourself on women’s issues before joining a discussion on women’s issues. If we have any questions about tires, don’t worry, you’re our go-to guy.

    As a woman I thought the sign was funny. Stop reading to much into things.

      You can tell she’s a woman because her name is Sue, see?

      I find it ironic that because I found the sign humorous as a woman you automatically dig deep with ” you can tell she’s a woman because her name is Sue.” I am a woman who found the sign humorous and doesn’t think it promotes domestic violence. If it would have said ex-husbands all of you who are crying about domestic violence would think the sign is hysterical. Please get over this, it’s just a sign.

      Since you seem to be missing the point, let me spell it out. Brebay was implying that you are a man-troll pretending to be a woman, by using the name Sue. Brebay is probably right.

      And no, you don’t think for us, we would not find it funny if it said ex-husbands. However, there is a history of a great deal of violence against women by men, not a history of a great deal of violence against men by women, and these things do not exist in a vacuum.

      Be careful Sue, you are betraying the Sisterhood. The hive mentallity at it’s finest. Since this came up, I asked a few ladies I know. They all but one thought it was funny. The one that didn’t said it should have been about mother in laws.

    Yes: poor English, tiny minds, and dumb people who spout cliches really makes my eyes sting.

      quit smoking, then the smoke won’t make your eyes sting.

      I’d be butthurt if your comment actually made sense.

    Seriously, I like that this page doesn’t censor every swear word, but is there really no difference between fuck and shit and calling other commenters “cunts?”

      There seems to be an unusually high number of trolls around here lately 🙁

    Then by your own definition, you’re a cunt.

    Googling commenters. And you insist you’re not a troll? Fuck off. Get a life, you sad little boy.
