Funny or tactless... you decide.

A friend of mine’s roommate shared with me an idea he came up with a couple weeks ago. He wants to get a customized New Orleans Saints jersey. He doesn’t want to have his name put on it; in fact, he isn’t even a Saints fan. What he wants to do is have the name on the back be “Katrina” and the number to be “5”. The five is for category 5.

I’ll be honest and admit it does make me chuckle; there is something darkly amusing about that. Maybe it’s because one of my ways of dealing with things is to make jokes out of it, or maybe it’s just because I’m an asshole. Either way it did amuse me some.

So far I’ve shared this with about a dozen people getting a mixed reaction, I’m just curious what everyone else thinks. Is this funny or is it tactless? Or possibly tactlessly funny.

I'm thinking funny, but annoying because while wearing it, methinks people will stop him and say, "hmm, what does that stand for." The annoyance comes in having to explain it to a bunch of dolts who will probably just raise their eyebrows as a clear signal that they still don't get it!

She was a 4. He needs to put the #4. Can you imagine if she'd been the 5 at full strength?

Tactlessly funny and yes, it did make me snicker. Though, I thought the same as Bou... it went in as a 4.

He can explain the number as "how many years it'll take to fix the Superdome".

my vote: tactlessly funny
