Top 10 Things You Shouldn't Joke About

The Top Ten
1 Autism

People joke about anything they like anyways. This list isn't really going to change anything, it's only encouraging people to joke more about these things. It's best to ignore these comments.

Autistic people are bound to be obsessed with certain types of things. I have autism and whenever I pick out a Lord of the Rings character I immediately become obsessed with it and look over as much information as I can about it.

Most people at my school think I'm a freak for doing this but I'm not a freak at all. I'm just a normal person like everyone else who has a different way of thinking. And I think it's good to delve into something to learn more about it as long as you don't obsess over it for a really long time (What I mean is don't spend your time delving deeper into a character, movie, etc).

I mean, I don't mind if people laugh at me and my quirks as long as I'm in on the joke e.g I say some of the stupidest things (and I mean really stupid) and that's fine because everyone is laughing together and it'd be a boring world if no one laughed about anything.
But joking about Autism in a malicious way or saying 'you're so Autistic' is sick. No one with Autism is any less equal in any way. It's disgusting that people push away Autistic people because they happen to be Autistic. I know loads of Autistic people (including myself) and trust me, a lot of them are really nice people who just wish to be accepted and have weird quirks like me.
Being Autistic is like having blue eyes - I'm born with blue eyes and I can't help that. No one can help being Autistic either!

I have autism and I'm SO OBSESSED with five basic things:

1. Disney movies
2. Astronomy
3. The number Pi
4. The movie Flight of the Navigator
5. Sarah Jessica Parker

I am ridiculously obsessed with finding out as much as information as I can about these things. Call me creepy, but I'm Sarah Jessica Parker's biggest stalker.

I hate it when people make fun of me, especially when I throw tantrums. I'm not kidding, I FREAK OUT and scream bloody murder. Trust me, it's scary when I do this and you would not want to be around me.

Autism isn't a bad thing, but it's not a good thing either.

2 Terrorism

Terrorism is not something to joke about, in 2001 the whole group of AI Qaeda caused 9/11 and did the attack on One World Trade Center, it killed 2,977 People and Injured 25,000 People, it caused $10,000,000,000 of damage due to terrorists destroying parts of 4 buildings so after that U.S. Navy SEALs of the U.S. N.S.W.D.G. killed Osama Bin Laden in Pakistan in 2011 so he won't come back to life about what he did to One World Trade Center.

No one should make jokes about 9/11 nor believe the conspiracy theories that run along with the incident? Making a joke about the massacre of 3,000 people is one thing, but when you believe in a 9/11 conspiracy theory you make it about your self. Most 9/11 conspiracies have been debunked anyways, but none of you bother to check. Al Qaeda is the suspect, and your just as bad if you joke about it

My younger brother and I were actually watching a YouTube video of the second plane hitting one of the twin towers when we were very young, and he just laughed as if he never knew it was real! Nobody should ever make fun of bad things that are happening.

We shouldn't fear terrorists, since that is what they want. Terrorist organizations HATE being mocked, so that is what we should do.

3 Cancer

My father died of cancer and I can say that this is a horrible dead that in fact can happen to everyone. This is certainly not a laughing matter. This is a serious thing and I hope that in the future they will find a cure or a top detecting method to see cancer at his earliest stage because now they only detect early stage cancers mostly by luck.

"You're cancer" "That's cancer" "Lol cancer" Do you realize what serious topic that is? It's like prank calling 911. Cancer is something really serious, something you shouldn't joke about. It broke many people's hearts, and my grandfather died of cancer. None of us who lost someone or had someone experience it like it. Imagine your whole family die of it and it's just you

Cancer is a terrible disease, people who make jokes about it clearly don't care about people suffering from this disease.

...Why isn't this #1? It's worse than autism. Why make jokes about people who are legitimately DYING.

4 Parents who lost a child

You SHOULD NEVER joke about a parent or parents that has lost a child, especially if their child committed suicide.

You are disgusting and sick to society if you would EVER find this funny. Remember Connor Clapton? Remember that?

Why the hell would you give Kate McCann an award for dedication to her child though?

One of the worst things that could happen to a person is losing a child.

5 Rape

Now I joke about a lot of things but I don't have the balls to make fun of this.

Rape is an image created in the mind that never completely disappears

Rape is a vile act.

6 Suicide

Having a friend that is actually suicidal, if you joke about suicide, I don't care who you are, you are the worst kind of person.

Being suicidal myself, I never want to hear anyone joking about this ever. The mental ward is not a lovely place to be.

Suicide is #1 for me because it seems like now a days most kids are either depressed or want to die.

I hanged up all my Christmas decoration there is just one more...

7 Poverty

This is something that can happen at everybody. From riches to rags can happen more quickly than you think or will know and I can tell you for sure that it is not something to laugh about. And about the comment of " I'll stop joking when they stop stealing ", just one thing. When they steal it's not because they want to steal. They steal to survive. When you hungry and you got nothing to lose but your life, you don't think twice about stealing.

If you do that as in JOKE about that, I'll sue ALL of you.

I wouldn't say I'm poor...but I'm not rich either.

That's just super mean

8 Depression

People who literally ignore you when you talk to them, say bad words every second, and joke about offensive things, Nope, they aren't getting happier, and they think and yell about killing themselves, their punishment is depression, which gives them an ache of regret and shame.

Last year I sat next to this girl so nasty she gave me depression, not joking

Depression is hard to go through. I'm sick of my classmates thinking screaming out "DEPRESSION! " in the middle of class is funny

I have depression, and I hate when people joke about it, or mock me because I'm down all the time, or say that I can control it.

Like we said, suicide is on your side. Stop with the oppression, people with depression


9 Ebola

Ebola is a disease, that people are sadly dying from everyday. But, in my school, people would say "I have Ebola! " everyday, and I'd tell them to not joke about it, because Ebola is a serious problem!

Back in middle school, I coughed or at least cleared my throat. And some of these kids yelled out "Ebola! " jokingly and kept laughing at me. Smh... Deadly diseases like Ebola are terrible topics to joke about.

Ebola is very serious virus that can shread around our world anytime. Don't make jokes of it. Or you could get Ebola one day and it can be very serious.

There was a man who sneezed on a plane and he said that he had Ebola but it was a prank. That wasn't cool.

10 Death of a pet

"A pet died? Ooh! Lets make a joke! " -a bad joker

Don't joke about death of animals! Up here is an example of a joke that you should NOT do!

When I was little I usually have fish and a cat
Cat- I don't know what happened to it.
Fish- They all died.

My cat Laya, who was 10 when she died, was a beautiful soul and a wonderful pet. She died a week ago, and it feels like everyone in my house is hurting, which they are. Laya gave birth to two kits, my current cats, along with two rescues that Laya took care of like they were her kits too. Laya was a kind, loving cat who actually woke my father and me up when someone was trying to break into our house. Laya's death is not something to joke about. My mom texted me "wait lol she died?" It broke my heart. I'm really sad and depressed right now. Pray a little for Laya that StarClan took her and she is very happy.

I have had two of my pets die in my lifetime. It's really sad and should not be viewed as comedic.

The Contenders
11 Drowning newborn babies

Shut up! Its not funny! My boyfriend brother died because he went out the doggy door into the pool. He was 6months old! So SHUT UP!

If you enter "dead baby" into google
"Dead baby jokes"
"Dead baby memes"
"Funny dead baby jokes"

I cut myself on the edge, this is just dark.

Oh yeah, we can't joke about drowning newborn babies, but its alright to kill them by the millions for no reason! (abortion)

Is it bad that I do this to my baby brother on the weekends.

12 Domestic violence

There are a few things one should never joke about.. 9/11, conditions of life of poor people, suicide, cancer and other diseases; eating disorders but domestic violence takes the cake

Horton hears domestic violence in the nest apartment and doesn't call 911!

13 School shootings

This is one of the things I often hear people joking about, and it's honestly awful that someone could make a joke about something like this.

I'm going to make a feature film called 'High School Shooting the Musical' in 2024

14 Death

My best friend's dad died and I was there to support him through it as we was 6th graders and it was hard. Then someone made fun of him in school for not having a dad and I just got pissed to my point and started screaming at the kid and was like stop joking, you ungrateful bastard, he then hit me, so I told the principal and he got suspended
Don't joke about death, that is that

Death is just very upsetting cause you never see them till you die yourself. I remember I used to be a Highschool Rock Band called Bizz. The lead singer would come in depressed. He didn't want to tell us what was going on and we just made music. It had been happening since 2009. Then his doctor told us he was dianosed with AIDS and his death date will be 2013. He then died and we have to stop making music. That's all for now

Death isn't something to joke about, this is upsetting because anyone has been dying, stop joking about Death or you will be dead someday.

So a few months ago, a 11th grader died from unknown causes at my school. We had an assembly about it and we went back to class. Then someone told a joke so I laughed and everyone just stared at me and hated me for a week or two. They thought I found the poor person's death funny. The next days were like hell.

15 The Holocaust

This is definitely the thing you should never ever ever talk about. Probably the most serious one. It's both terrifying and inhumane. More than 5 million have died by various tortures. That includes being thrown into a pit of fire or being slaughtered in a mass shooting. Many families were divided and loved ones could not tell if their family or friends were still alive or not. Death was so sudden. If you want to know what hell looked like, you should look at the Holocaust.

All the people who joke about this make me sick. Get educated you uncultured little pricks, look up how many people actually died. Then you won't find it funny.

Often I find that if something happened before our lifetime it's okay to joke about but this is definitely an exception.

The holocaust is one of the most terrifying subjects of all of history. No one should joke about it at all.

16 People with a dead parent

I lost my mom when it was 5 in 2007 back then, but seriously. What's the point of joking about a person with a deceased parent? It's not funny, it's basically a manner of making fun of family members that suffered the loss of a parent. So I believe that this is something not to joke about. It's not funny, and there are better things to joke about rather than joke about a person or anybody who lost their parents their whole lives.

These jokes are for those with the worst, lowest senses of humor. If someone's parent passed away, leaving the offspring miserable, the least you can do is not crack a taunting yo mama joke (which most aren't that funny, anyway). It's sad, really, that people actually joke about this.

Well, if someone's mom died you can't just come up to them and tell them a yo momma joke.

Everyone is going to have a parent pass away during their life so why joke about it?

17 Animal abuse

Animal abuse is not worth joking about, there's people who abuse their own pets, anyone who abuse their pets should be arrested, DO NOT joke about it or get jailed someday.

It makes me sad to think about this.

18 People whose weight is different

I'm underweight despite the fact that my diet is 99% junk food.

At food places they pile up my food portions bigger than everyone else's just because they think I am anorexic. I am not anorexic. I am just petitely-built.

My 18 year old brother is fat and autistic and I have to secretly follow him so that he doesn't get bullied though I'm half his height I'm able to fight people.

" I mean, people should be allowed to make fun of people who CHOOSE TO BE FAT. " preach on, the idiots that disliked your comment are so funny.

I don't care if someone's pencil-thin or a bit wider, it's not cool to joke about others' weights!

19 Child abuse
20 Orphans

Life is dogmatic, if you try to apprehend it.

What does that mean dogmatic?

21 Race

I'm half-black. Me and my friends make a FEW racist jokes.

Same with Whites or any other races. This isn't okay.

They are a joke themselves.

The only race: human

22 Killing your parents

I love how the two comments here are so different
Like, one is saying "You should love and treasure your parents! Bet you're gonna cry when they die" and the other's just like "LOL who wouldn't want to kill their parents? parents suck"
Just saying

Who doesn't want to kill their parents. I hate them they are asses

23 Anne Frank Annelies Marie Frank was a German-born diarist. Anne for short. One of the most discussed Jewish victims of the Holocaust, she gained fame posthumously with the publication of The Diary of a Young Girl in which she documents her life in hiding from 1942 to 1944, during the German occupation of the Netherlands in World War II. She was discovered with her group and arrested on August 4th, 1944. She survived Aushewiz, but was told to be moved to Bergen-Belsen Coculation Camp afterwards. There, she and her sister, Margot Betti Frank, died in the March of 1945 from Typhus.

Anne Frankly, I don't care.

She's just a little girl

24 People who are blind or deaf

I make fun of Helen Keller. I once saw her walking into a bar. I laughed and laughed as the others treated her concussion.

We don't go around making fun of Helen Keller. These other people, in a way, are no different.

Ok but Stevie Wonder jokes are funny.
"What's black and screams?
Stevie Wonder answering the iron."

Helen Keller walked into a bar. Then a chair. Then a table.

25 Jews

People who joke about this are called the hitler or evil.

Why can't jew stop being so sensitive about these jokes?

Come on people! You don't like to joke about Jews?
