The only type of humor that I find offensive is openly racist “humor”. My feeling if a joke has the intention of demeaning a group in a hurtful manner, one that would not be told to a member of that group (particularly if they are bigger and can kick your ass) it's not humor.

I don't include ethnic humor as that is usually the groups own humor – much of it self depreciating. Nor do I include humor that ridicules ideas – even my own. If such humor offends someone I consider it a case of thin skinned tight asses without a sense of humor.

The following joke takes a shot at Atheists and I think it's funny.

An atheist was walking through the woods, marveling at the beauty of nature. As he was walking alongside the river, he heard a rustling in the bushes behind him. He turned to look. He saw a snarling 7-foot grizzly bear charge towards him.

He ran as fast as he could up the path. He looked over his shoulder & saw that the bear was closing in on him.. He looked over his shoulder again, & the bear was even closer and he tripped & fell on the ground.

He rolled over to pick himself up but saw that the bear was right on top of him, reaching for him with his left paw & raising his right paw to strike him... At that instant the Atheist cried out, 'Oh my God!'

Time Stopped. The bear froze. The forest was silent. As a bright light shone upon the man, a deep, powerful voice boomed out of the sky.

You deny my existence for all these years, teach others I don't exist and even credit creation to cosmic accident. Do you expect me to help you out of this predicament? Am I to count you as a believer?”

The atheist looked directly into the light and admitted, 'It would be hypocritical of me to suddenly ask you to treat me as a believer now ... but perhaps you could make the BEAR a good Christian?'

There was a short silenced and then, 'Very well, so it shall be' said the voice.

The light went out. The sounds of the forest resumed. And the bear dropped his right paw, brought both paws together, bowed his head & spoke:

'Lord bless this food, which I am about to receive from thy bounty through Christ our Lord, Amen.

nice one Jim, seen the image but never the joke.
I can't figure out how that last line came out in tiny text.
Jesus is pulling your leg.
Then I shall make an equally unfunny theist joke:

Q: What did the devout theist do when he had a compound fracture in his leg?

A: He refused treatment and instead prayed until he got gangrene and died.
May his soul rest in his delusion.
In the voice of Doug from Up: It is funny because a theist gets dead.
The first joke sounds like a creationist attempt at a joke and is no funnier or more clever than crockoduck!
Cuckle chortle !
Just goes to show those @%$@ scientist always fudge the data to prove a point -- damned heathens.
