I know this is just humor to most of us and it should be, but, be the
kid in school who saw his dad get his face punched till he was out
cold and you won’t think it is! I had the rather unfortunate experience
of watching helplessly as my own Father was punched out cold in
front of me! I didn’t think “real” grown-ups acted this way! My Dad
simply confronted a bully’s Dad for picking on my Sister and the guy
sucker punched Him right on his chin! Dad lost his balance, the guy
grabbed him and finished him off! Not much more to it! My Dad was
taken to the hospital and checked out and and released……after
he came to that is! Not to funny!

Unfortunately, most humor is based on truth so there are cases like this one where someone might be hurt or offended or too connected to the subject matter. I bet even the master Bill Cosby offends some people. But far better to take the risk of creating smiles than to live in a overly sanitized politically correct world.

Sorry to hear about your dad. Karma will get the other guy.

Hey djuggler, Thanks for commenting back, sometimes for me, it
helps to get it off my chest by talking about it. By the way i’m not
at all offended, it is just a bad memory for me thats all. Love the cartoon
though, it is funny! Thanks for saying sorry, my Dad healed up just
fine but his face hurt him for a few weeks. Karma? My uncle (dad’s
brother) took care of that guy’s sorry ass a few days later! I don’t
think he’ll hit anyone else any time soon!
