On a personal note my mother was recently diagnosed with breast cancer and had a bilateral mastectomy four days after her diagnoses about six weeks ago and honestly she coped in part by cracking silly jokes about it(that is how some people cope with stressful or uncomfortable situations).
If a cancer patient cracks jokes as a form of coping, that's none of my business. People making fun of others? I don't think its okay.

Then I guess we'd better kill off every comedian on earth!
Lighten up, it's not aimed at you and as far as I can see nothing is aimed personally at anyone. It's finding humor in a "delicate" situation, a situation to a body part that to most MEN is central to their core being.

If people were commenting on how he got cancer or that he did something to deserve this you might, MIGHT have a point but to continually jump up on a soapbox and berate people over some jokes (by men) about a wanger (owned by most men) is nuts.
