I do comedy now. Like real comedy, not journalism.
And it has left me asking this question. What’s funny?
Turns out, NOTHING IS!
Feminists get offended on women jokes.
Bhakts get offended on Modi jokes.
Bhakts and feminists get offended of Durga maata jokes.
Muslims, well, they don’t get offended. They just explode… in laughter.
Nah not really. I just said that because it was making a good joke. It might have offended some people.
Make a joke about animals, the Jain community and the odd Malayali who switched to vegetarian food gets offended.
Make fun of the Jain community and PETA gets offended.
Make fun of Chennai floods, people call it humour in bad taste. Lol. Log vaha mar rahe hai bhenchod tumko taste ki padi hai? Masterchef chala raha hai tumhara baap yaha?
Then they said the answer is within you. So I made jokes about myself. I started getting offended.
