I know, I know... wrong, evil, insensitive, exploitative. But, c'mon, kinda funny.

I guess I just don't get it - I don't see anything sick, exploitive, or even funny. Is this suposed to be some crude 7th-grade sex flip-show?

And what are the four panels that only occur at the bottom - they look like vampires listening to iPods . . .

I gotta agree with absmiths. I don't see much to make out. Maybe it's one of those pychological tests?

Thanks, TheMosco. Serious world news blackout here at MacNN, I guess.

No, I just haven't watched any of the videos or looked at the pictures. I saw some of the first pictures, and have heard plenty of descriptions - it's bad enough knowing it happened without having to look at all the pictures.

I can't possibly see how it could be funny - or why you would even want to find it funny. I guess it shows that there are sick people outside of Abu Ghraib after all.

Fair enough. But it's called gallows humor. I was as shocked and sickened by those pics as anybody. But at some point you realize that all your handwringing is not going to undo what happened and not going dissaude some nut-job from blowing himself and a bunch of innocents up as an act of revenge. Then it's just a matter of laughing or crying. I choose laughing.

Don't know what to say about the picture.. I don't find it funny...

But the thing that wonders me the most, is why this is posted in the Peripherals forum, and not the Lounge...

I don't think the image is funny, clever or amusing. Its just bleh.

Besides, this is the wrong forum. Bring this drudgery to the Lounge where it belongs.

Too much hassle. It's easier to just close.
