This 9/11 Joke Collection Will Save America!
After 5 Years, You Can LAUGH! It's official!
ooze.com's 9/11/06 memorial
As America wrestles with the fifth anniversary of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on the USA and the subsequent wars that followed, people are finally beginning to ask some important questions. Where is this country going? Why is there still a big empty pit where the towers once stood? Where are the hilarious post-disaster 9/11 jokes?
I hope you will understand my request and not pass judgment on me, but it has been 5 years, and you need to be the one to break the barrier down. I am talking about is September 11 jokes.
I have searched and searched; yet, it is futile. There are simply none out there. My life is lacking without these jokes to share with my friends. I know I am not the only one who is thinking about them.
Please help me out by putting your creative genius to good use.
Ooze never backs off from a tasteless joke; after all, we published PENTAGON DISASTER JOKES in November of 2001. We assumed at the time that, after a preliminary pause, there would be plenty of terrible jokes to go around. However, after a simple web search, we confirmed that the only comprehensive collection of 9/11 jokes posted on the web were the work of a folklore scholar congratulating himself for predicting the appearance of these "jokes." But another scholar correctly points out (in the top google search for 9/11 Jokes) that for the last five years there has been a deficit of this type of humor almost everywhere. When 9/11 jokes do pop-up outside a few USENET groups dedicated to tasteless humor, the jokes are either self-censored in some way, or vaguely patriotic statements about killing Muslims.
Where did the dopey jokes go? Are people so horribly offended by the events of 9/11 that they can't make them - much less post them online? Was the death toll too high to mock? Was the destruction of American property too painful to bear? Then people who write Tsunami Jokes or Katrina Jokes should be jailed. If they are too offensive for a web based audience, how can you explain why these Holocaust jokes are posted on the web? Are Neo-Nazi's funnier than the rest of us? It's time to end the hypocracy!
In the interest of not letting the Terrorists Win, Ooze presents a half-assed attempt to win over hearts and minds with our 9/11 Freedom Joke Collection (not found in a folklore journal) -even if the jokes seem stale and out of date.
WARNING: We collected the best "jokes" we could find, but don't expect much –most were stolen from Academia, who are notoriously un-funny, and USENET, which can be equally moronic. We tried, but couldn't make them any better since we're terrible joke writers. Oh. And the majority of people will find the following humor offensive. Sorry.
Tragedy + Time = Funny Funny Jokes!
