    WOULD LIKE YOUR OPINIONS PLEASE. THANKS



    was just told that my tag line is offensive. Proably looks like i abuse animals. F ME! !!!!!! i have a perverse & dark sense of humour & i wont appologize. Why? Thats me.

    Jeeze Louise is all i can say. Get a grip. Ok i might be making enemies, but i cetainly dont bitch about the 60% or more tags lines ive read.

    Some of us just like to make a funny, others use their tag lines for sympatjy,

    Yeah we are all ill. Yeah we all have this or that or both.

    Humour is good for the soul.

    I tjink i just made enemies saying what i said, but such is life.

    Life is a buch of cherries & we all got the pits.

    Dictated to me by ; CHARLOTTE rottie-x *****// Sidewinder my disabled cat ( has tumour on spine & had much trbl walking ( he cant really, we help him aling) then there is Oscar, siamese cat we got after MIL passed. THEY KNOW A JOKE WHEN THEY HEAR IT? THEY PLAY PRANKS ON EACHOTHER. THEY PLAY TOGETHER

    Anthony Jeselnick ( there are more, but the brain has stopped thinking )

    Comedy Programmes === The Office
    Entourage
    Trailer Psrk Bpys

    Movies ==== Jolly ( story abput a dog )
    { more movies, bit 2 l8 2 think }

    My family, hubby, son & daughter [ all of whom have same humour & darker than I ]

    Charlotte, you are fine. The tagline caused me to recoil. Dark, yes. Funny, no.

    Charlotte, I've been bothered by your signature line but you're probably right. I should get a grip. I've been paying too much attention to news stories about pets who are thrown out of car windows, pets left by the roadside to fend for themselves just because their humans are tired of them, pets deliberately poisoned by hostile neighbors who set out tempting treats laced with cyanide, etc. And I've seen all too many animals who were roadkill.

    I'll keep on telling myself I'm too touchy and try to get a grip.

    I have no idea who told you you your signature line is offensive. If it was a moderator, I'm not the one who raised the issue. I'll admit that the thought did cross my mind a couple of times though.

    This isn't meant as an attack on you. You're someone trying to deal with MS, and it's hard enough to cope with life's stresses when you have MS without having to be upset over a difference of opinion about a forum signature line.

    I hope we can agree to disagree and carry on.

    I freely acknowledge that I am the one who told her that. For many of the reasons you state, agate. Animal abuse and cruelty has just become listed as a class A federal felony, too, making it a criminal matter.

    I have a firm grip. This isn't funny. Just because it is a pun, doesn't make it less offensive. I've blocked her so I don't have to read it each time I'm reading other posts to which she's also replied.

    I feel the same way. I am sure that someone feels the same way about mine. Everyone has different thoughts about what they consider humor.

    Agate is right:" You're someone trying to deal with MS, and it's hard enough to cope with life's stresses when you have MS without having to be upset over a difference of opinion about a forum signature line".

    Charlotte, I agree with both Ann and Gary. My sentiments exactly, so not much need for me to repeat them. The first time I saw it I just kind of did a "double take" and after reading it that time I have not bothered to read your signature line, just your post.

    I think using our having MS as an excuse for offensive language is offensive. But I'm done with this.
