Humor is the wierdest thing, so much of it is dependant on context and
the baggage of shared culteral attitudes. That's why often times a joke
that is funny within a community can easily be rather unfunny when it is
being told by a third party ABOUT a community.

And I have to tell you, that was my reaction to your joke, even though I
am sure that wasn't your intention.

Without being too preachy,  I'd like to ask that all members of the LUG
please try to remember in future that this is a public forum and that
therefore most every group you can think of is represented.

Just thought I'de pass this on

One day a guy dies and finds himself in hell. As he is wallowing in
 he has his first meeting with a demon...

 Demon: Why so glum, chum?

 Guy: What do you think? I'm in hell.

 Demon: Hell's not so bad. We actually have a lot of fun down
 here... You a drinkin' man?

 Guy: Sure I love to drink.

 Demon: Well you're gonna love Mondays then. On Mondays that's
 all we  do is drink. Whiskey, tequila, Guinness, wine coolers, Diet
 Coke and Fresca... we drink till we throw up and then we drink
 some more!

 Guy:  Gee that sounds great.

 Demon: You a smoker?

 Guy:  You better believe it!

 Demon: All right! You're gonna love Tuesdays. We get the finest
 cigars  from all over the world and smoke our lungs out! If you get
 cancer, no biggie-you're already dead, remember?

 Guy: Wow...that's....awesome!

 Demon: I bet you like to gamble.

 Guy: Why yes, as a matter of fact I do.

 Demon: Cause Wednesday you can gamble all you want. Craps,
 Blackjack, Roulette, Poker, Slots, whatever... If you go
 Bankrupt...well, you're dead anyhow.

 Demon: You into drugs?

 Guy: Are you kidding? Love drugs! You don't mean...

 Demon: That's right! Thursday is drug day. Help yourself to a great
 big bowl of crack. Or smack. Smoke a doobie the size of a
 submarine.  You can do all the drugs you want and if ya over
 dose; that's right you're dead - who cares! OD!!

 Guy:  Yowza! I never realized Hell was such a swinging' place!!

 Demon: You gay?

 Guy: No.....

Demon: Ooooh, you're gonna hate Fridays
