Luke Help: Is jokelore Folklore? (40) RE: Help: Is jokelore Folklore? 02 Apr 01

The reason I brought the topic to a thread is because I was criticized for my thread about the amish virus. More specifically, because of the Amish members of Mudcat and their feelings. "Like telling a nigger joke in a blues bar" was the chide. In my estimation this is a blues bar, an Irish session, open mic, a comedy club and folklorists forum. And jokelore has a place here. There are so many people coming from so many places with so much to say. I was never expecting to be warned about such trifles. Not long ago there was a thread about whether we should censor our topics here because of the number of children coming to the site. It was fairly easy to see that most folks wished the youngsters well but thought that if they had the good sense to be here then they should be regarded as members of the family and left to their own judgement. I feel that way. However, I personally will never enter another humerous topic here lest some Polly Anna gets her little frills ruffled.
