When people make jokes about Hurricane Sandy, I don’t see the humor in what they’re saying. What’s funny about a natural disaster that has killed over 40 people in the US and over 70 people in the Caribbean? Natural disasters aren’t a joke, but our society is programmed to take anything- absolutely anything- and laugh about it. Genocide, natural disasters, death- they’re all “funny”. My parents are on the East coast, and it’s not funny. No form of disaster and havoc is entertaining to me, and I don’t see why it is to anyone else.
