@ deputy - I get your point, but Pearl Harbor is a computer game now. While I don`t think there should be "AUSCHWITZ - The Game" I don`t have a problem with some jokes.

Well, just ask any japanese about hiroshima and nagasaki, or an american about pearl harbour.
Bygones? Guess not, and rightfully so. One should never take the killing of so many innocent people lightly.

The holocaust isn`t untouchable. I am sure they have learned to let bygones be bygones.

@cobrakiller: plus points for you, that`s the way it SHOULD be, generally and globally. But it is not, hence my statement.

Probably because the Muslim Arabs were allies of the Nazis during WWII, and because they hate the Jews as much as the Nazis ever did.

I agree with TheOrigin.

It`s about time the holocaust stopped being untouchable. That was a long time ago. This is a different age... that kind of poo will never happen again because people`s lives are worth more today.

and my grammar seemed to die in that last comment. This gym owner was either total moron or really pathetically vying for attention. Either way this is obviously terrible and offensive. Sigh, some people...

hahaha banur, I appreciate that pun.

Is this guy an idiot? hmmm...he want to publicize his gym and now it certainly has publicity. So I guess he succeeded...however, it is going to take a while for the negativity surrounding his gym to die down I`d bet. All in all, a terribly idea but it did achieve something.

TheOrigin, there are few things I find off limits. The genocide of any people is one of those few things. Whether it be Jews of WWII or anyone else.

5Cats, with all due respect. Read my comment one more time please, I`m trying to say that a single event solely should not be treated preferntially. A lot worse things have happened and they do not get this "untouchable" status. I`m all for equality in this matter, either go all the way or not at all.

Some things ARE untouchable in polite society: otherwise it`s anarchy. Duh!

When "do whatever you feel like" becomes the law of the land, we`ll go back to the stone age in 1 generation.

On a side note: omitting the context, the ad was rather poor anyways.

@Batmanners: No. There should not be a single untouchable event. We should treat all of history equally. Well, either that or make all of it untouchable.

@tripout420- Telling jokes in private, with people who won`t be offended, why not? Something public like this is just a stupid thing to do.

The holocaust should forever be untouchable. Jew jokes aside, over 10 million people we killed in the holocaust. It`s no laughing matter, as people alive today were affected by it personally.

I know that if my religion underwent a mass execution by a bunch of haters, I would be offended too.

When will the holocaust stop being untouchable? Some of the funniest jokes are based around the theme! It`s not too soon anymore!
