Poor taste humour

April 1, 2008 at 6:01 pm (blog)

Met my friend Penny for dinner last night. She told me that a friend of hers came home last week to find her boyfriend had hanged himself in their living room. She cut him down and he fell on top of her.

“Dead body on top of you is okay,” I piped up, “normally happens 10 years into a marriage.”

Seriously though, suicide sucks. Young British Artist Angus Fairhurst was found dead in Scotland this week, ending his own life at 41. No doubt his contemporary Damien Hirst will stick his body in a tank of formaldehyde.

    He life ended in Bridge of Orchy which is in middle of nowhere and a truly beautiful place. Perhaps the last act of completing the puzzle that was his life.

    I don’t th think I would call what you said poor taste. It was just a very cliche thing to say, and not very funny.If you have to think about what is good taste or bad taste every time you want to write/say something, you will be limiting your creativity.
