Re: Rape Jokes

On a purely intellectual/conceptual basis, I'm extremely hesitant to say that a certain kind of joke can never be funny, but I can't really think of an example of a funny rape joke I've ever heard/seen, either.

Possible exception: The Onion's point/counterpoint: U.S. Out Of My Uterus / We Must Deploy Troops To Jessica Linden's Uterus Immediately... but even there, the joke is far more of a play on words, boundless American militarism, and patent impossibilities ("a reconnaissance force of 200 men will be stationed on her cervical perimeter") than it is about sexual assault.
