    A man is walking down a street when he sees an orange man mowing a lawn. The man wonders why, so he goes and knocks on the door of the house. When the door is answered he asks, "Why is there an orange man mowing your lawn."
    The man in the house replies, "My n#gg#r, I'll paint him whatever colour I like!"

    Not funny

    Not because of any sort of racial context

    It's just plain stupid

    No clever play on words

    To coin a phrase

    A nothing burger

    Okay. Thanks for the reply. I hate the n- word, but liked that joke. Actually I dislike any forms of prejudice. -isms shall we say?

    I consider that joke to be inoffensive, however, because I cannot see someone painting someone due to ownership. People do Mark things they own though. Perhaps a grain of truth.

    that joke wouldn't even be funny if you replaced n#gg#r
    with
    wife
    or dog
    or horse
    or son
    or daughter
    or minister
    or .......................................................(fill in the blank)...........................

    ...............................................
    My 1st father in law(Italian/american) was fond of telling n#gg#r jokes............grrrrr
    So, I asked him: "What's the difference between a n#gg#r and an Italian?"
    To which,he responded: "I don't know."
    To which, I responded: "Neither do I."

    He stopped telling those jokes to me.

    True people mark items they own

    And slaves were owned in the past and still are in parts of the world

    However the n word is not the reason the joke is not funny

    I can think of two other endings which are still not really in the funny bone region but might be a tad better

    1/ I was going to paint him green but thought he might get lost in the grass and blue is taken by my neighbour

    2/ The Ethical Treatment of Slaves said it was OK as long as the paint was lead free

    Short answer - not funny at all.

    Long answer - "jokes" based on racist comments/rhetoric have no place at SciForums. Period.
