i'm not saying rape jokes are funny, but who am i to tell a comedian what he can and cannot talk or make jokes about?
Thats the problem with today though. Decisions are no longer made by the individual. Its how the internet community react to it on twitter, you tube, facebook etc. etc. Its getting harder and harder for comedians to test boundaries on audinces. Reasons we will never see a genius like Bill Hicks again.
