Cindy, I'm sorry. I did break the forum rules with my comment. However, I didn't deliberately try to cause controversy. My aim was humour and I fully acknowledge that it was at your expense. That's why I thought it necessary to defuse the edge with an emoticon. I kinda forget that we've got people of all sorts of ages and backgrounds. While the joke may have gone down easier with people my age, that may not hold true with an older demographic.

Peace.

It happens. Sometimes we misjudge our audience and what we thought was edgy humor ends up just being edgy, or worse, insulting or demeaning. That is the risk we take when we take risks with humor.

An honest ownership of the mistake and sincere apology for the unintended offense is a sign of character. Thumbsup

Other, than the "older demographic" Laughat, I accept your apology. I can count on one finger Laugh out load, the men who have ever apologized to me. I really do appreciate it. I am happy to end this thread on a better note.
