id fucking strangle you
Is this supposed to be a joke? Because I don't really see what's funny about it.
I find the Benign Violation Theory of humor works well to describe why I think it's not funny. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Theories_of_humor#Benign_Violation_Theory
It states things are humorous if "1) something threatens one's sense of how the world 'ought to be', 2) the threatening situation seems benign, and 3) a person sees both interpretations at the same time.".
Since comments like "Just drink the fucking bleach already." are so ubiquitous on the Internet, or at least the part that I roam, I find that lemma 1 is not met, as the statement confines to a norm. Alternatively, I could say that the statement is so benign, that there is little humor left.
