Yeah - but there are fine lines. All humour is based on observations of differences, of whatever type, between people and situations. There seem to be so many people lining up to be "offended" these days. I'm sure some of these people have a Masters Degree in "being offended".Racist jokes kinda ho-hum these days …..
I'm sure this will offend someone, but that seems to be part of my lot these days...
Mahatma Gandhi was a great leader of strong convictions. He refused to travel on trains, cars or beasts of burden. Consequently he travelled most places on foot, leaving his feet hardy and extremely calloused.
He also abhorred violence, preferring to use methods such as civil disobedience, particularly hunger strikes, to achieve his objectives. He also undertook long fasts as a means of self-purification as well as social protest. Although his goals frequently were achieved, his general health was fragile as a result of poor diet. His poor diet also contributed to his loss of hair and substantials tooth decay, the latter resulting in him having quite bad breath.
In summary you could say that he was a “super calloused, fragile mystic, hexed by halitosis.”
