Ever notice how easy it is to get a response out of people on a forum? I mean you post one stupid, if maybe tasteless, joke, and the next thing you know, you've got two pages of flames directed at you, which maybe was exactly what you wanted. But man is it funny...

They rape babies in Africa because they think it will cure AIDS. Now that's scary.
