LOVE/HATE: Is It Funny?


(Illustration via Strange Things My Imagination Might Do)

So. This ad. Okay, I get where they came up with the joke. All the same… I can’t help thinking it sounds an awful lot like the kinds of ‘jokes’ I’ve so often heard about sexual assault.

Oversensitive? I’m inclined to think not. All the same, I’d like to know what all of you think.

Clearly, I HATE this one. How do you feel? Why?

    hmmmm…may be I am just not getting it…but I actually find it really fun and creative, and I do not really see the conection with the sexual assault jokes…

    Can’t say that the sexual assault jokes were the first thing that came to mind…what came to my mind is that it implies that the ring, and not the proposal, is what she’s screaming about. But now that you mention it, I can see how it could be very offensive.
