      Drew Lynch’s stand up comedy never fails to make me smile and chuckle. He has a talent to poke fun at himself without being offensive towards other people or people with disabilities.

      When and by whom is it appropriate to make jokes about disabilities? Has anyone offended you with a “humorous” remark about disabilities or people with disabilities?

      When I first saw some Mel Brooks films (“Blazing Saddles”, “Young Frankenstein”, etc.) I was shocked at how he made fun at racism and at disabilities. But soon I realized that by making fun of everything without exceptions, he was making all things equal. He actually made separating one group out for ridicule look foolish.

      That is an interesting insight Pete. I never thought of humor that way. I do think that those were different times and people got away with much more in terms of humor and “jokes.”
