Social Tip #71 - AIDS JOKES

Last night I was at a BBQ and ended up talking to some people about HIV. I don't remember what my point was, but I know it wasn't serious enough to keep people from laughing and digging around in their purses for Klonopin. It doesn't matter anyhow because we were interrupted by some carbon pile who exhumed that old gag of confusing the meanings of being HIV positive or negative.
"Oh no, Your test results were negative? That's terrible, you are so young. Have you written a list of everything you want to do before you die?"
Why did he do that?! Someone should suffocate him with the AIDS quilt. Maybe people who think it is funny to pretend to be stupid are just too stupid to know when something isn't funny. Personally, I'd rather get AIDS then tell that joke. It shares the same comedic welcome as an inappropriate sexual pun (ex. I like to give children head. Excuse me, a head full of knowledge.)

If you are still telling that joke, I have some important information for you: Jokes die. And that AIDS joke had a shorter life span than the person who inspired it.

That's a joke?

Yes, I'm positive. And yes, in this scenario, being positive is also a bad thing.
