Re: "Semicontrolled Demolition" Discussion

The joke is funny, not the event. The comic is about the paranoid idiots who demean the tragedy of 9-11, by inventing stupid stories about it. I guess being unaware that there were "paranoid idiots" who "invented stupid stories" has caused this joke to fall quite flat for me. I ...
