...Yeah, I see nothing funny about that, it's really in poor taste and devoid of humor.....

I too come from the nation that made Four Lions, and I can guarantee you most British people would not find the 9/11 video funny.

So I didn't want to piss off anyone even though I thought it would've been hilarious. I planned on using a gif and changed it after considering how it might have come across. The post I'm referring to is below:

I own Four Lions, and I think it's funny because it's absurd. They use a website called Puffin Party to communicate and accidentally kill Osama Bin Laden when they travel to Pakistan to train as terrorists. It's a funny film because it's absurd but realistic enough to be recognisable. The end of it gets super serious and poignant as well, highlighting the pitiful waste of human life that is suicide bombing.

By contrast this is just the Benny Hill music played over the footage of an actual terrorist attack where 3000 people died and several wars began, I don't find it funny because it's not saying anything beyond "haha terrorism" and is doing so about something pretty much everyone here accepts is pretty tragic. Most of the 9/11 jokes posted subsequently aren't jokes about 9/11, they're jokes that include 9/11 as part of something silly. This just comes off as mocking something tragic to no purpose.
