Two women were sitting quietly together, minding their own business.

Now that is funny! I'll have to try that one on the ladies at work and see what they think...

I admit to sometimes being a humorless jerk, but I've gotta say that I find this in really bad taste and not funny in any way.  Just my opinion....

I agree. Not funny and degrading. It should be locked or better yet, deleted.

It's not like we've gone to dirty limericks..... yet.

I don't think AHA has banned anyone yet - I have plenty of jokes that could make me the first.
We all have different thresholds, different lines, different filters, let's all just have a homebrew.
The moral majority, is neither.

I found it very funny. LOL funny. My wife did too. That is the thing about jokes. A sense of humor is VERY
subjective. 50 years ago it would have been very bad. Now...in this PC world, like they said, "...know when to
duck." It could be either, a man or woman taking the swing.

I was laughing at Carson at age three...My parents worried about my sense of humor then...But to show
that a sense of humor is top priority in my world, I laugh at Sunday comics, out loud. I find it extremely
important to be able to laugh at a joke, "inappropriate" as it may be, the fact that it is a joke trumps the
bad aspect of it.

By the way, I do have laugh induced asthma....As much as I love to laugh, it hurts sometimes.

Thank you for a sensible response, Dingo. Aren't the majority of jokes at the expense of someone or some thing? That's why they're JOKES.

Criminy!    :-\

I thought it was funny. It took me a minute to get it, but then again I'm kind of slow.

I don't think it's funny.  I'm not offended by it or anything, and I see why it's supposed to be funny.  It's just not any funnier than this one:

How many honest, intelligent, caring men in the world does it take to do the dishes?
Both of them.

Not really funny, not offensive either, just . . .meh.

I told my wife that joke.  It went something like this:

Me: Hey, I heard a joke today.  Two women were sitting together quietly...
Her (interrupting): Well, that doesn't seem very likely
Me: minding their own business.
<pause>
Her: Oh.

It's probably funnier if you're drunk, Chris Rock is telling it, and it contains more profanity than other words.  At least that's how it seems on HBO.
