A funny note about Funny

It’s funny how things that used to be funny, Aren’t allowed to be funny no more, What was once a joke that heralded laughter, Now seems to set off a small war. Jokes about blondes, Irish and mum’s, Jokes about folks that you knew, Got replaced with: PMS jokes aren’t funny….. Period! or I hate peer pressure, you should too. To be fair these new puns, with double entendre, Are funny when said in a crowd, It’s funny how this Funny replaced the old Funny, Funny how we are laughing out loud. Written on 4th August 2017 but not for any contest. This is the only contest this write has been put into. Thought this might suit the contest for Maria Williams "I started a joke"

Yeah old jokes may be considered offensive nowadays. In older times if we called someone a chubby balloon they just laughed it off, now they would scowl n be real upset. So this was an interesting topic to write about. Super rhyming too and thus enjoyable . Thumbs up. Nice to read from u again. Pls do write your thoughts about my latest poem too, under it.
