Embarrassment: because they don't want to think about the subject.

New person here; Some people are racist, and they just laugh to the joke. Adults also swear and are smarter than children, so they understand the jokes very well...

Are jokes riddles?

No, of course. Jokes are not riddles! A joke is something you tell, like a line or a story. A riddle is something you ask someone that they have to figure out the answer. While riddles can be jokes (not always), and some jokes are in the form of riddles, they are often not one in the same. Many people think of humorous stories when they hear the word joke. Riddles are often told or asked as humor, but not always. Riddles can also be puzzles or mind teasers rather than jokes. Funny riddles are one type of joke, but humor is much more than just riddles.

People often joke about things that are uncomfortable to discuss. Most people who have not been to prison don't know what it is like being locked up, and most don't want to go there and find out.

Sometimes homophobia or anger at the incarcerated fuels the prison rape jokes.

Why do people think that crying is funny?

I think people think it is funny at first because crying and laughing often sound the same. So unless they are a very cruel person, I don't know anyone who would think someone crying is funny. Though I do think that some people might think someone crying was funny if the reason they were crying was ridiculous or if the reason was hilarious. It still does not make thinking that someone crying is "funny", justified.

Why today also sardars are facing vulgar jokes on them your friend converted because of such tease taunts?

I'm not quite sure what you are asking but, as my knowledge of Hindi=0, your English is far superior. But, I'll try to answer. Low, ignorant people make vulgar jokes about other people because the low, ignorant people feel bad about themselves. The low, ignorant people know that they aren't good so they try to find a way to make themselves feel better. That is why they make vulgar jokes about others. Intelligent, educated people do not do this. Often those jokes are about religion because making jokes about people of a different religion makes low, ignorant people feel better. In any country where a smaller group of people follow a religion different from the larger group of people, (like Sikhism) the low, ignorant people in the larger group will make vulgar jokes. This only shows how low and ignorant those people really are and you should hold them in deepest contempt. VERY deepest contempt. Your friend was either very sensitive and/or not very strong in his or her religion. Your friend felt badly about the jokes and thought that converting was better than having to have vulgar jokes made about him or her. This is too bad because it gives power to the low, ignorant people but your friend must make his or her own decisions. Each person must make the decisions that he or she feels are right for them so all you can do is try to let your friend know you still want to be friends. I hope this helps.
