First of all the jokes are just not funny. They are typical formula 'jokes' that uncreative people come up with. Next, it is easy to think something like these things are funny when it is not your family or friends that have been washed out to their deaths. Think about how you would feel. And just when is the mourning period going to be over for us to start telling 9/11 jokes. That is going to be a full of laughs time. Never is probably the answer, or not in my lifetime. Hahahahaha 'my family just got washed out to sea,' Hahahahahahahahaha. The classic one was when Johnny Carson made fun of Natalie Woods death a few weeks after. What a jerk. There are plenty of things happening on this planet every day to make fun of that do not capitalize on other people's misfortune. You just have to be thoughtful and creative to do it, not crass, thoughtless and insensitive. Call me up when one of your loved ones dies in a tragedy and someone makes an inappropriate joke about that. Tell me how funny that is. By the way, I usually am a fan of Gilbert.

you closed minded people get over it. Have you not heard of the term "Freedom of speach". If you don't like Gilbert then don't read his comments. And tell us just what have you done to help the people of Japan? most of you wont even help your neighbor let alone a people half way around the world. God is watching us all and its his place to judge not yours. so stop complaining get up and do somthing for someone els today.

I laughed at the first one you posted about the Japanese being so advanced that the beach coming to THEM. That one was actually pretty clever if you think about it. Kind of a whole spin on the technologically advancements they have made. I found humor in it. I was not focused on the deaths from the tsunami.

The 2nd one that you posted about dead Japanese girls floating by. NOT funny in the least. Gottfried went over the top. Which will happen from time to time. Who is not guilty of saying stupid things every once in a while? At his age though, wisdom and discernment is supposed to be more developed by now.
