Make Us Laugh!

Some jokes about Censorship from Upjoke.com

 

In China, film makers have to appease the Chinese censors, but people forget in America we have the same thing...

We also have to appease the Chinese censors.

 

Two brothers wanted to find out if Russia is really like the propaganda they hear in the West. They decide that the older brother will go to Russia to see for himself, then write back what he sees. Since the letter might get censored by the government, they decide that if the brother is telling the truth, he would write in black ink; if he is lying, he would write in red ink.

A few months later, the older brother sends a letter back. The letter is in black ink.

"My brother, everything we hear in the West is a lie. Russia is a great country. Everyone is free and happy. The foods are abundant and everything is great. They have everything here. There is no shortage of anything. However, unfortunately, I haven't been able to find any red ink."

 

What happens if you take a popular website, add a dash of censorship, and allow the discretionary system of control to be based on the biases of individuals...

Q: How many Lindens does it take to change a light bulb?

A: Please, everyone, be patient, we're doing the best we can, it's not fun for us either, check the blog for updates, and in the meantime, here's our Torley with "10 Super Fun Things To Do in the Dark!"
 

Q: How many forum readers does it take to change a lightbulb?

A:
1 to change the light bulb and to post that the light bulb has been changed,
14 to share similar experiences of changing light bulbs and how the light bulb could have been changed differently,
7 to caution about the dangers of changing light bulbs,
6 to argue over whether it's "lightbulb" or "light bulb" ...,
another 6 to condemn those 6 as stupid,
2 industry professionals to inform the group that the proper term is "lamp",
5 know-it-alls who claim they were in the industry, and that "light bulb" is perfectly correct,


9 to post that this forum is not about light bulbs and to please take this discussion to a light bulb forum,
11 to defend the posting to this forum saying that we all use light bulbs and therefore the posts are relevant to this forum,
36 to debate which method of changing light bulbs is superior, where to buy the best light bulbs, what brand of light bulbs work best for this technique and what brands are faulty,

5 People to post pics of their own light bulbs,
15 People to post "I can't see S$%^!" and their own light bulbs,
7 to post SURL's where one can see examples of different light bulbs,
4 to post that the SURL's were posted incorrectly and then post the corrected SURL's,
13 to link all posts to date, quote them in their entirety including all headers and signatures, and add "Me too",
5 to post to the group that they will no longer post because they cannot handle the light bulb controversy,
4 to say "didn't we go through this already a short time ago?"

13 to say "do a search on light bulbs before posting questions about light bulbs",
1 to bring politics into the discussion by adding that George W. isn't the brightest bulb,
4 more to get into personal attacks over their political views,
1 forum lurker to respond to the original post 6 months from now and start it all over again,
1 Linden to lock the light bulb thread.
 

(Note this is obviously an old joke, because there are way too many forum posters in it.)
