Too Soon? Former Minnesotan Jokes about Blooming Prairie Murder
I'm not outraged, I'm not angry, and I'm not saying this guy is a bad guy. I even see where he's coming from, but I think Tweeting this kind of thing now is too soon. If you're not familiar with the woman in the picture, she's accused of killing to people, her husband from Blooming Prairie and a woman in Florida. See the latest on the story about "Losing Streak Lois" HERE.
The hub-bub is about a guy from Minnesota, but living in Colorado, he Tweeted this joke yesterday...
I'm not a party pooper, and I LOVE dark humour. But...it's too soon, right?
At least in public.
And maybe that's the thing. A LOT of things are funny to you and your friends. Said in public, tho, where no one knows your heart and intent, they can come off as WOW! Should you be judged before people get to know you? That's a good question. Like my mom used to say, "If you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all...unless you know everyone around you."
She really said that.
