According to Michael Rottman of The Morning News "there is a brand of humor with an inherent meaning so dark that, even though we may wish we hadn't laughed, we're programmed to think it's funny." Mr Rottman takes one pedophile joke and explains why we laugh at it.
A pedophile and a little boy are walking through the woods at night. The boy says, "Mister, I'm scared." The pedophile says, "You're scared? I'm the one who has to walk home alone."
Before I became a parent, I worried that it might change me in ways I didn't want it to. Would I replace any of the vowels in my child?s name with a pretentious "y"? Would I stop myself before shouting things from my car window? Would I suddenly become Tipper Gore? So far, the answers are no, no, and not with these legs.
