Not exactly what you want to show your customers now, is it?

And this is from one of my local stores, too (just not sure which, sadly, because I want to high-five them). biggrin

It's a parody of Islamic extremism where making fun of Mohammed is met with executions.

The man in the red t-shirt is likely Alan Henning (it's the closest match I can find), and that decapitation occurred in 2014. Alan was a volunteer humanitarian aid worker, (I'd rather give a face to the victims than to remember the villains).

The `funny` is likely in reference to the multiple violent acts including:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jyllands-Posten_Muhammad_cartoons_controversy

and the most recent attack on a European magazine:

Yeah I'm aware of current events. I just don't know why anyone would consider that picture even remotely humorous.

Would you mind taking the picture down, ATB?  I'm assuming the man in the picture did end up getting murdered, and it's depressing seeing a picture of him moments before death turned into a silly internet picture with a dog head photoshopped on.

Why remove it? It's simply not funny but I wouldn't go so far as to remove it. Lets post some more pics and get to a new page so we don't have to look at it.

I find all of the husky dog joke panels funny. This one, in particular, though clearly founded in satire, uses a common and light hearted internet meme and juxtaposes it  against the brutality of the real world and makes a powerful social commentary on how far those who believe something are willing to go to defend that belief.  Additionally, it is a startling social commentary on the power of free speech, the whimsy of the internet and its ability to distill major social and spiritual issues into a just a few words and images and also lighten  up Francis.


I'm reporting you all to the mods for humor shaming me.

You're really not even going to respond to a polite request to take it down?  I would really rather not have to worry about looking at pictures of murdered people on Gaming Trend.  Respectfully, please remove the picture, or at least move it to Politics & Religion.

So I can post a picture mocking Christianity that involves someone being violently killed and just tell you to lighten up because it's social commentary? F*** off ATB.

Yeah, I think this is part of the issue here. ATB's choice of religion is widely known around here, and he feels very strongly about it. That makes a "joke" like the one posted above feel enormously inappropriate and like an attack on a different religion, regardless of whether or not that was the intention in the first place. It doesn't belong in this thread.

I simply dont find it funny. But asking him to take it down because it might offend your feelings is even more offensive to me than it being posted in the first place. Who appointed you as the moral police? Especially when its meant to be social commentary.

I say leave it up ATB.  But it sure as shit isn't funny.

Thats all I will say on this topic, as this isn't the thread for arguing.

I didn't order him to take it down, I asked him nicely. Someone could nicely ask me to change my avatar because their great uncle died during the filming of the movie pictured and it made him sad to see it. I'd be within my right to keep my avatar as-is, but it sure would be nice for me to respect the request and take it down anyway.  

Even though this forum is dwindling in population, I still like coming here more than anywhere else because it feels like a tight-knit community of friends. I guess that part is now also going away.

because at any rate it's a political/religious joke and should probably be in the thread specificallly made for such things
