So, I'm reading an article the Moose Jaw & District Chamber of Commerce is sharing today.  It's about "appropriate workplace humour".

It tells me "workplace humour can be a stress reliever, something that brings people together, even a motivator," but, "we should all remember, what one person finds funny may be offensive to another."

They're telling me a well-selected comic strip that demonstrates a funny aspect of the workplace is OK but "...anonymously leaving a comic strip on the desk of your co-worker relevant to specific behaviours in them" is wrong.  Have you done that?

The article also tells me what most of us already know...that poking fun at any type of person is now politically incorrect.  We have to be careful when it comes to race, religion, occupation and gender.

Yes, we can get into trouble if we don't follow those guidelines.

Don Rickles is dead and so is his style of humour.
