Default Offensive or funny?

"The internet is upset. This photo was posted after grandpa wanted to play a joke on his own son who was anxious about leaving baby with the grandparents. The infant was unharmed, and the photo was a a practical joke...but people are angry. Most, finding the photo in poor taste and dangerous. What do you think? Funny grandparents, or bad grandparents?"

Whilst most people are amused a significant number are saying it's wrong, offensive etc. Your view?

I think in context to the story it's quite funny for a grandparent to do- slightly sick but I imagine grandpops has quite a wicked sense of humour- so would not apppeal to everyones taste.

If that offends you your'e not on the internet much. Funny, harmless and a little crass. That is one chubby kid, he needs a sauna not dry heat.

Default Re: Offensive or funny?

if my parents managed to raise me, they must have had a pretty good sense of humour to suffer me, hence I wouldnt mind if they took a pic of my son like that
to anyone who is not told what the pic is about it might look offensive but after reading what it is, i found this funny
its all about context isnt it
ok back to the grindstone now!

Surely, as mentioned earlier, it depends on the context? And of course the relationship you have with your parents
