You have just received the Amish Virus. Since we have neither electricity nor computers, you are on the honor system. Please pass this to others and then delete all of your files.
Thank thee.

This is the same as the Norwegian virus. And it's not funny. It's nothing but an insult to a group of people. This is not funny, it is simply a way of promoting hatred and intolerance.

I agree, its just a joke forum. Take it as a joke and no more.
Lets not read any deeper into it other than it's a joke.

Well, I've heard a lot of "n****r" jokes (jokes about peole with darker colored skin than the majority in case you can't fill the *'s in in your mind); I've also heard a lot of jokes about native Americans. Does that make this right? No. It simply promotes racism, hatred, and intolerance.

I can see why. If I was Mexican I would be.

Mark,

Almost all jokes are at the expense of others. If you get offended easy, I highly recommend not reading this forum.

BTW: Don't plan on going to any live comedy shows. You won't like them.

Mark, the joke was, in fact, a tribute to the simple, non-technical 19th century lifestyle of the Amish. To presume that any member of the sect would be offended at the joke is arrogance in itself.

You jumped on your PC high-horse so fast you missed the whole point. You might want to take another look at the joke to see if you can find the real meaning. :rolleyes:

Nick :smoking:

....What's that you say? You never get down off your high-horse?
