    Having been shot at (3 times) lost front door and two windows to bombs and taken pictures that would stop you sleeping for a few weeks feel happy laughing at most things these days

    its our ablity in the uk to laugh at everything in the end that means we will win

    his mate shouted out no you have not its over here

    Not to everyone’s taste but I agree with Dave, we as a nation, have throughout history been renowned for our sense of humor and stiff upper lip, even under the most testing and horrifying of times and long may it continue.

    Having been in a situation not unlike Dave's situation, I can empathise. You do under extreme circumstances come out , sometimes, with the blackest of humour. Perhaps things you might yourself would not have previously found funny. However when dealing with the undealable, humour (be it black sometimes) is all that will stop you going mad or dropping into the hell hole of depression.

    Its the people at the very centre of the condition that seem to be the strongest, and keep the rest of us going, all heroes as far as I am concerned. ;)

    Dave's joke IS funny.

    Fewwho were touched by the actual events of 7/7 would want to look that joke and laugh, but if we never moved on to the point where we invoke humour out ofmisfortune then we'd hardly be able to joke about anything, especialy about war, dictatorships, , accidents, etc.

    There has to be a time when it has it's place. I don't mean in the sense that, callously, it is fair game. But I mean that humour is part of us and partly our way of dealing with shit in the world. If we are not to be prisoners to misfortune then eventually it has to be allowed.

    In fact, I wonder about my statement abouit about 7/7 people. Maybe some of them might find such dark hunour helpful. I recall seeing a feature about 9/11 humour starting to appear in comedy clubs in New York. It was difficult to know when to start. Too soon is too soon. But there came a point where the taboo was not helpfull but rather a constriction. Introducing humour to the subject was , for many, a release and also a defiance of the attack.
