I don't understand John. What is hurtful - The virus, the joke or pointing out it has already done the rounds?
The virus won't be hurtful coz it's a joke. The joke won't be coz Amish folks won't read it anyway (and I think they would see the funny side even if they did - anyone looking like ZZ Top must have a sense of humour!). I don't think anyone telling a joke will be offended by people saying they have heard it before so what am I missing?
To coin Robbie Williams (sorry to use such profanities on a folk site;-)) - Is there a tumour in my humour?
We need to know these things!!! If offense is caused we need to know how and why so we can avoid (or repeat) it in future!
