Messed up Jokes That Will Make People Laugh or Cringe

messed-up-jokes

Ever caught yourself failing miserably to control your laughter at a few messed up jokes? Sometimes, it may be easy to let out a laugh at an offensive joke and you may not even realize it until someone is giving you death stares. It doesn’t mean that you are not sensitive or empathic, you’re just able to take something in good humor.

Sometimes, offensive jokes can be so hilarious that other people may end up laughing along as well. On some occasions, they can really put a damper on the mood.

If you want to find a unique way to highlight important issues and keep the subject light as well, you can make use of some highly messed up jokes.

“How many cops does it take to change a light bulb? None. They just beat up the room for being black.”

This joke actually makes light of a very serious issue and highlights racism as well. Before cracking this, make sure that your friends are not easily offended. Its humor comes from a typical white cop’s reaction to African-American people who are discriminated against on the basis of their skin color.

It’s probably even funny, thinking how senseless cops can be and biased toward the members of the community that they may end up beating up a room instead of fixing its bulb!

The idea that women belong in the kitchen is dated and offensive. The rest of the house needs to be cleaned too!

Basically, this joke implies superficial sympathy and support for women by speaking against the notion that women belong in the kitchen.

However, the humor is in the complete turn that the joke makes by later implying that women belong everywhere else in the house as well. After all, why must their services be limited to the kitchen when the whole house needs cleaning!

It is one of those jokes that again sheds a light on the regressive mindset of some people. 

How many feminists does it take to change a light bulb? Don’t be stupid! Feminists can’t change anything.

Messed up jokes around feminism are a source of humor for many, especially those against this movement. This joke derives its humor from the fact that feminism, and thereby feminists, are incapable of bringing change, let alone changing a light bulb. You may want to end up starting any debates with this joke but it certainly might bring out some smiles.

What’s the difference between a suicide bomber and a feminist? One actually does something when triggered!

This could be one of the most offensive jokes that makes light of two incredibly sensitive issues. It clearly implies that the difference between a suicide bomber and a feminist is that a suicide bomber will explode when triggered while a feminist may not be able to take any action.

The joke is best kept to a private audience and may be one or two friends. In fact, the best thing to do would be to avoid telling it anywhere as you may just end up offending a lot of people.

Why are women like parking spaces? Because the good ones are already taken.

It would probably be okay to judge someone who laughs at this joke.

The humor lies in the comparison of women to parking spaces. As it is with such spaces where all the good ones are taken, it might be difficult to find attractive women who are single. While it is quite offensive, you might be able to get away with it in front of a group of close friends.

Pro tip: Never use this joke if you’re trying to ask someone out. Unless she really knows how to take a joke (although this one might not qualify as one)!

What was David Bowie’s last hit? Probably heroin.

This messed up joke could be very offensive to David Bowie fans. It takes a shot at David Bowie’s eccentric nature. For those who do not know, Bowie was a very unorthodox musician who has produced some of the greatest songs in the history of music.

While the question in the joke pertains to his “hit” single, the answer is a play on the word and implies the use of drugs. Even in death, he manages to amuse people!

“Drinking alcohol slowly turned me into an emotional mess. So I started drinking it faster.”

This is actually some light humor compared to other jokes in this list. However, it does briefly highlight the problem of alcoholism if you think about it. You may not want to crack this joke in front of your friends or family who are recently sober. The humor comes from how people can become emotional after drinking a lot and sometimes lose control as well.

However, since it is difficult to kick the habit, the joke makes a play on a solution that might be completely the opposite. Instead of reducing alcohol intake, start drinking more of it!

I asked Siri why I was still single. She turned on the front camera.

Nothing really works better than a bit of self-deprecating humor. After all, when you are known for cracking jokes at other people’s expense, you may be able to direct a few toward yourself as well. This joke is actually not that messed up or offensive and you don’t have to worry about the reaction of the audience.

Its humor comes from the fact that people think that Siri has the answer to everything and sometimes they may not be prepared for what she has to say. This is one joke that could make you a hit with a younger crowd as well.

I always make a mess when cooking rice on my stovetop. It is a starch reminder.

Rice and starch, do you get it? There’s really nothing disturbing about this joke. It has a clever pun that will get your friends laughing in no time. The humor in the joke comes from someone’s poor cooking skills so you can use that to your advantage as well. You don’t really have to think about putting this joke out there. It is highly unlikely that anyone will get offended with a bit of kitchen humor!

Despite knowing how offensive and messed up jokes can be, at times you are simply caught off guard. You end up laughing before you can even think about the implications. While that is not always a good reaction, you may be able to get away with it in front of close friends and family.

However, it is also true that most of the time the jokes that really get to you, the ones that make you laugh the hardest are those that are offensive to someone or the other. When you want to crack some of these jokes, make sure you avoid it in a public gathering where there are people who don’t know you. Otherwise, it may be all well and good!
