What's the worst thing about Jonestown jokes?

The punch line.

It was on this day in 1978 that cult leader Jim Jones carried out a mass murder/suicide of over 900 of his followers in Jonestown, Guyana. Horrifying. There's a joke about it but it's wildly innappriopriate.

And anyway, the punchline's too long.

Reflections on the Jonestown massacre of 1978

As a society, we sometimes tell jokes about some of the most horrific events--mass murders, disasters, and so on. Often the jokes start within a day or two of the catastrophe, even before the dead can be counted. Perhaps we do it as a coping or healing mechanism, or perhaps it's our only extant type...

In the course of playing, he says "I'm driving to Indiana Jonestown!"

To which I replied "Well once you get there, don't drink the Kool-Aid, Junior"

Hey /r/jokes

No joke here. Sorry to disappoint. The whole "so and so fainted" shit has to stop. Every damn joke, some asshat in the comments feels the need to say that someone fainted. It's not funny. Sure, I could just skip over the comment. But this has turned into a fucking virus. Let's stop it right now.
