People sometimes get offended by the use of humour in certain situations.

Using humour in dark situations either succeeds by breaking the tension (like when I had cancer and someone would make a bald gag - I always genuinely enjoyed that) or by drawing attention to crimes and misdemeanours by successfully highlighting the absurdity of a situation.

This is when people should realise they should not be offended by this humour, they should be enlightened...

Like in this second clip of the day from the Onion. Which brilliantly highlights the plight of child soldiers in Africa by suggesting that American children are 'behind' in their military skills.

Watch and smile. And then realise what you're smiling at.
