When I was growing up, I was taught it’s rude to laugh at someone else’s expense. I still agree with that, but I’d be lying if I said I didn’t laugh at people’s expense. However, I only laugh when it’s on TV.
If I see someone in person hurt themselves, my first thought will be “Are you okay?” But when I watch shows like truTV’s World’s Dumbest, Top 20 Funniest, and Most Shocking, I laugh my head off at the stunts and blunders people do. I find the stunts a bit funnier because they’re done on purpose. Unless someone gets seriously hurt, it’s almost always funny.
I also figure if they submit the clips to the show, the people in the clips must’ve eventually found it funny too. I wouldn’t submit something if I was still sore about it.
This isn’t from either of the shows I mentioned above, but it’s a compilation of clips where people have hurt themselves. Hopefully, no one was seriously hurt, or I feel bad for laughing!
