It is offensive. This whole trend of discussing the recently deceased as though they were punchlines in a sit com in unbecoming and extremely ugly.
I only hope that when someone close and personal to some of our posters dies, some other jackass doesnt think that its just some cosmic punchline in a social or political routine.
This is ridiculous. Are people that meanspirited that they don't care that these people, or their relatives are our neighbors, acquaintances and friends?
