7/18/11: Laughing Matters

Monday, guest host Bill Allred explores the controversial side of today's comedy. Can you tell a racial joke as long as it's funny? What about religion or rape? Nothing seems to be out of bounds in today's entertainment. It's crude, crass and often really mean. So why are we laughing?
