Seeking AskMe clean jokes threads

I seem to remember a thread where someone was asking for clean jokes to tell their grandma. I found the thread with clean jokes for 9-year-olds, the one with clean jokes for the office party, and the one with dirty jokes for grandma, but nothing with clean jokes for grandma. Does a clean jokes for grandma thread exist, or is my memory conflating it out of the others?

Jokes, as far as the eye can seeā€¦

Please help me find a fantastic thread full of mefites' best jokes! That is unfortunately all I have to go on. I don't particularly remember the timeframe, and I assume the question was something like "Tell me your best joke," but my search is not turning up anything useful. [more inside]

Repeated quoting of long lists considered annoying

I've been enjoying the list of jokes riffing on 'Hung like a museum's prize painting' in the Lulu thread. However, as a screen reader user, I'd like to request that, in the future, users wanting to participate in such a joke don't copy and paste the whole list in their post just to add one more at the end. It makes the thread unreadable to have to try and skip over long, repeated lists to get to new content. Thanks!

Help me find the story about a hilarious/offensive conference intro...

I'm going bananas trying to find a comment that I *think* I read on the green. The story was about an intro at a conference, or maybe at just a business meeting? And the person giving the talk lead with a pretty raunchy or out-there joke or anecdote, after which half the people balked and left and the other half stayed and had like, the best conference ever. I seem to remember that the joke-teller was a woman in a male-dominated field, but I could be wrong about that. IIRC, this story was told reverently, not disparagingly, and I think it appeared within the last two years. Is this ringing any bells?

Should a joke-heavy thread on a serious topic be thinned out?

Has the standard for deleting comments changed? It's been clear for a long time that early comments in a thread that tend to poison the thread ("This will end well"; "Getting popcorn," etc.), and comments likely to provoke a fighty derail, will be deleted. But is it now mod policy to delete jokes on the grounds that there are enough jokes already? Are we required to have serious discussions? This is the first time I've seen inoffensive jokes deleted on the blue, and I think it's something worth talking about. [more inside]

No more dead baby jokes.

In the abandoned baby thread someone made a joke about dead babies. Then someone complained about it. So the new rule is, dead baby jokes are a bad thing on MetaFilter. [more inside]

The filesystem jokes in this Reiser trial thread struck me as being in particularly bad taste. [more inside]

Little help?

So I heard about a thread where someone posted a picture of a guy in a plush dolphin suit fucking a 300 pound woman. I can't find it. Little help?

Fake statistics aren't valid answers.

Posting a esolutionsdata.com link in response to an Ask Metafilter question is bad form. Go hone your stand-up routine somewhere else.

Why was my comment in this thread deleted?

Why was my comment in this thread deleted? My comment was "How much do you make?" and I was serious. Is that somehow not appropriate? Does jessamyn or Matt get to decide what might be an appropriate conversation starter?

Can we make jokes in AskMe?

Would some "wisecracks" liven Ask Meta up a bit ?
We've all behaved very well so far.

Jokes in AskMe are no good

Can we please make it stop? It's bad enough that we really want a 100+ post thread about same sex marriage every day. Do we have to drag it into AskMe?

Why was my comment deleted?

If people are going to ask religious questions, does Matt apply doctrinal arguments in adjudging what is an acceptable answer or not? [MI]

Should fictional posts be allowed to stand?

It's not a hoax, it's fiction. Marquis has apologized for any potential offense, and hey, it was cleverly done. Going forward, is a "fictional" post more appropriate for a blog? Does this exploit the membership for one's own purposes, however artistic? (But don't all posts do that?) Or is it a question of trust?

Help! Help! I'm being oppressed!

Whatever groups is it still all right to make jokes about on MeFi?

"That's OK Summer, I meant it in a "bugger the bloody Welsh" way anyway. :)"

Would a smiley negate the offence if I said "bugger the bloody Koreans/Irish/Jews"?. Which other racial/ethno-linguistic/whatever groups is it still all right to make jokes about on MeFi?
