I'm pretty sure that Angelina Jolie will still want to wear a bra, because part of her treatment has been to have breast reconstruction, which many women choose to help reduce the terrible emotional effects of a mastectomy.
According to her doctor's detailed account of the procedure, Angelina chose to keep her nipples, which necessitated further checks that there are no signs of cancer around the milk ducts, while nearly all the other breast tissue was removed, followed by another operation to perform the first stage of breast reconstruction - layers of synthetic material designed to increase blood flow to what was left of her breasts.
Several weeks later she had implants, which, according to her doctor, "went extremely well, bringing an end to her surgical journey".
So she'd probably still want to wear a bra, yes.
Too much detail...
Insensitive, puerile, and lacking 'funny'.
Adapting it from something you've seen elsewhere doesn't make it any less awful. Perhaps if you are ever in the position of having to chose between almost certain cancer or losing your testicles we can adapt a joke about that?
You can do better than this Oxy, and it's a pity you haven't.
Now recycling twitter jokes 2 days after they did the rounds?
Ironically, Rick's response means you have something in common with one of her implants. You both look a right tit.
OK, I'm too busy and writers-blocked to do anything original so I am just recycling stuff for cheap laughs - and admitting it. As for Ms Jolie, she is a pathological Hollywood attention-seeker and therefore fair game.
FWIW (i.e. not much) all of the relatives who have died in my lifetime bar one died of cancer - my mother had a masectomy, recovered from breast cancer and died of pancreatic cancer 20 years later. I have a more than average chance of doing the same.
Nonetheless, I don't think that makes the subject off limits. Or are we going to start banning subjects because they aren't funny to many people? In which case, let's just stop.
Perhaps if I had a go at editing it...?
The difference between Yikes' admittedly near-the-knuckle adoption sub and one this is that he's satirising the celeb adoption trend (in an admittedly near-the-knuckle way), whereas this sub is just saying "Har Har Har, Angelina Jolie's had her tits cut off!"
For me, the taste question in humour always comes down to: "Do the audience think I'm daring and clever, or do they just think I'm a sad twat?"
Asking myself that question has helped me navigate successfully through the comedy minefield for many years. If you'd like any advice, I'd be more than happy to cast an eye (with your permission of course) over any future subs.
Always on for collaborations.
