      is always in place. It's a dangerous exception to invoke though because if you HAVE to tell others you're invoking  it, (telling people something was a joke or that it was intended to be funny) then you failed.

      In failing, of course, you don't get to claim the exception and standard community consequences apply; plus the "lame joke penalty" is assessed as well.

      So you better be sure you're really funny or don't bother...
