15 Dark Humor Jokes If That’s Your Thing

Dark comedy is not for the light of heart or the easily offended. Dark jokes remind us to not take life too seriously and to remember that touchy subjects are not above laughter if the joke is well writtenThey say that tragedy + time = comedy, because we have to laugh at the macabre in life - otherwise, the dark would consume us. It's not a fair world, or a particularly kind one, so tragedy is all but certain to befall us at one time or another. And when it does, you bet that laughter is the best medicine (because the American healthcare system is purposefully designed to keep the population sick, in debt, and unwillingly chained to their employment since that's the only way to be covered when disease and misfortune find us)!

Here are 15 dark jokes to read quietly to yourself, and then decide whether or not to share them with others.
