Top 10 Things You Shouldn't Joke About

The Top Ten

1 People with Autism

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).

One time back at school, I tried to show my Trigun video to an autistic classmate through my cellphone but he started that stupid singing and turned away a bit and I moved my cellphone to his face a little too close again because I too excited over the Trign video, to pay attention to the funny Trigun video for 5 or 6 times until he physically throwing a tantrum like a stupid 2 or 3 year old brat, screaming " Leave me alone! " But I didn't, I started laughing while tried to hold him down through the couch where he was sitting, force to watch Trigun, Vash the Stampede video, and told him, "Hold still you baby! " I told the teacher the classmate was behaving like a baby. I got a little ignorant toward him after, so I tried not to do that again.

I made fun of one classmate who has autism when he was eating an apple in a poor manner like chewing with his mouth open, I joked about comparing him with horse and made neighing sounds and everybody in the class started laughing when they saw this thought it was funny especialy me, but luckily we didn't got in trouble thank goodness but the told we don't make fun of people with autism and other disabilities.

I'm 17 years old and I am currently living with a high-functioning autism disorder, which means that I am very skilled when it comes to school learning. Also, I am not offended by any of the kids who go to my school, so that makes me feel like I'm liked very much by not having to get teased on, plus I can hear things very well, although I can't read small words from far distances.

2 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 sick if you ever joke with t

Don't lose your child or the pedophiles will snatch them up...

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

3 Cancer

"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

Saying something is cancer isn't making fun of the disease. IT'S REFERRING TO THE ORIGINAL DEFINITION!

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.

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

4 Terrorism

I agree with you all 9/11 jokes are just plane wrong

Come on those jokes are the bomb

Why were the 9/11 victims mad? They ordered a pepperoni pizza but got plane instead.

Just keep in mind that a lot of innocent victims died that day. Why do you need to joke about that? - Userguy44

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.

5 Rape victims

Rape is literally the worst thing that can happen to someone. It's on the same level as torture and murder. The percent of rape victims that suffer from ptsd is six times the percent of people who come back from war. don't joke about rape. Period.

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

SpongeBob: Look Gary, doubloons! Don't drop them!

6 People who are poor

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.

Oh no, I'm so afraid of getting sued by some nobody who gets offended by humor of all things - DCfnaf

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

That's just super mean

7 People who are going through depression.

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.

Imagine how that person feels you making fun of how they feel in life

Depression happens when my nemesis is put NEAR ME IN CLASS SEAT PLAN D:

It'll just make them more sad.

8 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!

Overreactions about Ebola jokes is another serious problem - Nateawesomeness

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.

I had Ebola soup this morning.

Ah, he made a joke about Ebola! My delicate sensibilities have been tragically offended! - DCfnaf

4th grade makes fun of Ebola, I'm talking to you little Jeremiah

In my grade, someone said to me that if I say Ebola you have Ebola, seriously. It's stupid and just not right. - funnyuser

9 Suicide

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...

I one time joked about that and I had to go to the mental ward for a week the food was awful and I got beaten up for being weak never ever will I joke about this again

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.

10 Death of a pet

Why would you joke about this?

My pet just died recently

That's way too sad for an animal lover like me.

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!

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

Why not just the death of them why do they have to drown, why not vacuumed before they're born

Who in their right mind would do that?!

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

13 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.

Did Jew know that I did Nazi that coming

I did Nazi all these jokes coming, Anne Frankly I'm offended you got here first.

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.

14 People with a dead parent

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

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.

15 Death

If it's more comical and unrealistic like The Ugly Barnacle, then it's fine.

A couple years ago, a 5th grade boy died. He was riding a four-wheeler and he got in front of a truck, and it killed him :(.. I didn't know about it until people started wearing his funeral. and just Recently, a year old baby died from surgery. She was born with half a heart. After a few surgeries, they accidently put water in her brain (too much water or something like that ) and she died the next morning ;(.

A few years back, a 6th grader in my school died from an unknown cause. (I think it was something to do with the stomach) And some person, some heartless person began to make JOKES about a person in our grade DYING. It's not funny, and it never will be.

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

16 Orphans

Why can't orphans play baseball, cause they can't find a home

This list is about people who DON'T joke about these things. So share your opinion somewhere else if your gonna joke around - Swiftdawn

Life is dogmatic, if you try to apprehend it.

What does that mean dogmatic?

Why do orphans always lose in SORRY,they don't have a home

17 People whose weight is different

" 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.

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

I mean, people should be allowed to make fun of people who CHOOSE TO BE FAT.

18 Black people

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

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

They are a joke themselves.

19 Animal abuse
20 Killing your parents

That means your life going to suck even somewhere you love them probably when they die you will cry I sure will

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

21 People who are blind or deaf

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

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

No one should ever joke about these two disabilities!

What if they're legally blind?

22 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 more.

She’s just a little girl

Anne Frankly, I don't care.

23 Bronies A brony is an adult (typically male) fan of the Hasbro animated series My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. The fandom gained enormous popularity during the 2010s.

Making racist jokes about them can be bad

24 Jews

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

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

International law decrees only Jews can joke about Jews

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

25 People who lost certain body parts

Well it's kinda sad :(
EDIT:Ignore my comment

My teacher only has 1 hand, she was only born with 1 hand.

Nah, they're perfectly 'armless.

Some people are born with 2 hearts or 1 on the left side or 3 kidneys,

26 People's dead parents
27 Religion

I'm Catholic and I believe that the jokes about The Pope abusing children are not okay at all. But I still find them funny nonetheless since I know that they are not real.

Did not mean to vote


HIV is the only positive thing about my life. Damn, I'm on a roll!

AIDS is very serious.

You know Freddie Mercury had aids, he was having a good time but aids has some powerful stopping power

We're not just sure, we're HIV-positive.

29 Addicts
30 People who can't talk

I'm absolutely speechless.

This happened to a boy at my class.

31 Transgendered people

I think people should become mature and understand that there are things you can't joke about and a lot of people should become more mature in their daily lives

32 Adolf Hitler Adolf Hitler (April 20, 1889 - April 30, 1945) was a German politician who was the leader of the Nazi Party, Chancellor of Germany from 1933 to 1945, and Führer of Nazi Germany from 1934 to 1945. As dictator of Nazi Germany, he initiated World War II in Europe with the invasion of Poland in September more.

Did Jew know that Holocaust jokes are offensive, Anne Frank-ly I don't find them funny. People who make jokes about Hitler can burn in a fire.

I literally hear Nazi jokes all the time.

Frankly I mean say that I say that I joke about hitler all the time 😂

33 War

War... war never changes

I don't get how kids think it's funny to Sieg Heil in the hallways at school. Go back to hell where you came from.

34 Sandy Hook Elementary

Hmm I mean if you can make a really funny joke... I guess its worth a shot.

Other than that, How was class?

35 Relationships
36 Murderers
37 Having a gun when on an airplane

Isn't this terrorism?

Yeah jail time for ya

38 Cutting

It's not just a phase MAAA

It’s like not funny AT ALL when people make cutting jokes. It took me an extremely long time to get out of cutting, and even now I’m dangerously teetering on the edge of falling back into the habit. Please don’t make jokes about it because it really hurts survivors’ feelings, it makes us feel worthless, or unwanted, or that cutting is the correct decision.


39 People who are intellectually disabled

No matter how you look at it, you shouldn't ever joke about this. It's wrong and just disrespectful.

People with Autism you mean.

No dude not autism it’s poeple that can’t walk but either way it can be handled easily but no jokes!

40 People who are shy

This is somehow above dead babies. And this is coming from a guy that is shy ( if I don't know you ).

I’m a shy person.

41 Sexual orientation

Hey hey I made a cereal for gay people. It's called fruity screws.

Joking about this is ok.


Every day LGBTQ kids like me, are going through bullying and depression. This isn't a thing to joke about.

42 Boston Marathon Bombings

Yeah making fun of this is just crossing the line guys

43 Slavery

Want one.

44 Fatphobia
45 Naked grandmas

I find this funny!

46 Manchester Attack at Ariana Grande Concert

Many people went there to see Ariana, but some of them met John Lennon too

I hate people who say that this bombing thing was fake

That concert was the BOMB!

47 The "Making The Bus Monitor Cry" Video

A little funny but very mean

48 Periods

I am a boy and I understand periods are very bad but I like to joke about 'em. I mean to be very light hearted and jokes about periods are much more light hearted than jokes about other things on this list.

I got in serious trouble at school for a misunderstanding. My friend ( who is a guy ) was acting all moody and I said " is it that time of the month again? " like if girls can joke around about it why can't I?

I'm a girl and I think period jokes are very funny. Period.

These are actually really funny.
