I can understand that in a high traffic forum such as this, you have a good point.
Not because of any disrespect (try not taking everything too seriously if this particular thread bugs you that much, there really isn't that much here), but because, if things like this happen more frequently, the signal to noise ratio suffers. A good laugh every once in a while can add color and stir people up and breathe some fresh air into a place, but if every other post is intended as a joke, it gets tiresome to pick the serious posts and the jokes apart and filter it all.
So yes, I agree, this should be in the fun section. Or, if I misinterpreted and this was intended seriously, Timothy needs to work a bit harder on his reading skills.
