Do you find this joke offensive?

A boy says to his mother, “you’re the best mom ever… well, except for maybe the Virgin Mary, but it’s a contest.”

It certainly isn’t intended to be, but upon thinking about it, do you think that it is distasteful?

No, not distasteful.

Kinda like that one.

I don’t get it.

But I’m a blonde. :smiley:

No - I don’t find it offensive, I think it is actually rather sweet that a son would love both his mother’s that much! :slight_smile:


Nah…he probably doesn’t know Mary too well yet :wink:

Not at all, I think it’s cute!

But… why would someone take offense at it?


My favourite Mary joke of all time …

‘Let him who is without sin cast the first stone …’



Okay, that is funny :thumbsup:
