Aren’t you thankful that I didn’t pick a more realistic photo of a miscarriage?

you are mean…;-)
I love the fact that it’s King George V in the first photograph, seemingly happy despite the man running by his carriage xD
Respect for recognising him!
I’m a monarchist. It’d be treason if I hadn’t recognised him xD
One of my friends at college went out with a great-great-granddaughter of the last Kaiser ;)
The funny thing is that the running man did not miss the carraige but is begging for loose change from the King, and is that the prince sitting next to him?
I’ve just been reading a very sad article about miscarriage, and noticed you linked to this post in the comments section. Just wanted to make a couple of points. Firstly, what an absolutely vile thing to do. Fair enough if you want to write these posts (freedom of speech), but to seek out articles about miscarriages (that you know many vulnerable and distressed people will be reading for a sense of comfort) and deliberately link to this post – you really must be subhuman to find enjoyment in that. Do you not have any friends or relatives who have gone through a miscarriage? Would you point them towards this post? Secondly, even without the insensitivity of the subject matter, this post is not even slightly funny, witty, smart or creative. You appear to have made the classic ‘lazy comedian’ mistake of thinking that because the ‘joke’ you’re making is controversial, that makes it edgy, smart and funny by default.
1) No, I don’t know any miscarriages.
2) My relatives don’t speak English, so the joke wouldn’t work for them.
3) I did not and do not think that this joke is controversial. It’s a pun. I found it funny, so I put it online.
4) People who just had miscarriages shouldn’t waste their time reading about it. Now is the time to read some really good books and be happy that you were spared a child. Freedom!
