UnNews talk:Yankee pitcher carries out terrorist act
From Uncyclopedia, the content-free encyclopedia
Guys, stop and think a moment before you start joking about a man who was just killed in a plane crash.--Procopius 22:18, 11 October 2006 (UTC)
If we make fun of the Iraq war, terrorists, and lots of other more serious things in which lots more people die, we should be able to make jokes about this, particularly given the intense media reaction. --Composure1 22:41, 11 October 2006 (UTC)
- We make fun of war and terrorists, not the victims of those things. We don't write things like this:
- Cory Lidle a Yankee pitcher crashed his plane into a building in an act of terrorism against the City of New York after losing to the Detroit Tiger in the first round of MLB playoffs. The crash Wednesday, set off a eight-alarm fire.
- Henry Neimark, a pilot who happened to be driving nearby at the time of the crash, said the plane appeared flying at full throttle and was aiming for the building in question. He said the plane came in very steeply and banked hard to the right, and then it launched three missiles before crashing into the building.
- Mike Mussina (best pitcher) of the Yankees told reporters that Cory Lidle jokingly said that, “…if we lose to the damn Detroit Tigers, I will fly my plane into the first building I see…”. He also mentioned that A-Rod said that he was going the kill all the Mets.
Especially about the married father of a six-year-old who just died at the age of 34.--Procopius 23:07, 11 October 2006 (UTC)
While I agree with you that a lot of these things you cited are most definitely in bad taste, I still think that, as I said in my first comment, "we should be able to" to make such jokes. Any sort of censorship of free speech based on content itself is a step in the wrong direction - both here and in the real world. --Composure1 23:39, 11 October 2006 (UTC)
