Depends who makes the jokes and the context in which they were made.
If a random bloke came up to you and screamed “SHEEP SHAGGER” into your face and then walked away laughing saying “haha the sheep shagger didn’t seem to like my joke”, then I’d say that was different to your best mate greeting you as a sheep shagger.
An Irish joke can be ok, depending on who is making it and why. It can get a reaction though if a nationalist who has expressed support for recolonising Africa comes onto the forum to make a xenophobic Irish joke straight out of the Bernard Manning jokebook.
If Richard ”let’s sort out the African’s” UK can make edgy jokes, then I see no reason not to make edgy jokes back at him.
Richard told a joke in a thread called jokes and you called him a name.
Yet he is the problem?
Did I say he was the problem?
He made an anti-Irish joke (after previous imperialistic posts) and I made a nasty joke back. The thread then moved on until you brought it back up.
We could keep arguing about this for the whole weekend or we could just move on.
This is not the "your plans for the weekend thread"
Solomon, a Holocaust survivor, finally dies aged 93 and goes up to Heaven. When he meets God, he asks if he can tell him a joke. God says "go on then", so Solomon tells him a Holocaust joke. "That wasn't funny", said God.
Solomon shrugs his shoulders and says "I guess you had to be there."
