35. Is it our sense of humor that leaves a bit to be desired???

Juror #7 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE

Explanation: I agree it's mildly rude, but it was a mildly rude party...the poster just brought the punch(line).

--------------------
Perhaps we're experiencing a cultural divide. Not everyone appreciates the rather...unique... humor offered in our group. I mean, I didn't think the post rude, but someone else thought it offensive enough to hide. Or, they thought alert stalking friends would be available for their daily AA ride through.

Or, is it a control thing...you know...aka Miss Millie

"You get away from me! Don't touch me!
Don't you know who I am?
I've always been good to you people!
Calm down.
I am Miss Millie! I'm the mayor's wife!
I've always been good to you people!
I've always gone out of my way for coloreds!
Miss Millie, what's the matter?
Those boys...
...tried to attack me.
No such a thing.
How could you leave me alone for so long?
What am I gonna do about the car?
Jack will drive you home, Miss Millie.
I can't ride in a car with some strange colored man.
I'll ask my sister Odessa to squeeze in.
That way I have more time with my children.
I don't know her either."

Some people don't handle not being able to control people very well...It's typically the same group that doesn't treat people very well, either.

P.S. By the way, Dana Ivey, played the hell out of that Miss Millie part. Who knew Gahn would attempt to imitate art in real life?
