Best laugh of Christmas season

OK, I've been told many times my sense of humour is weird, but my best laugh was being notified by the Facebook Community Support bot that one of my posts was being blocked for breaching their guidelines.

Very rarely post on FB, probably four or five times in two years but hey ho. This one was a very obviously tongue-in-cheek comment on the Doctor Who episode way back when the fictional Prime Minister appointed Daleks as a national security force and I speculated how the then political leaders of a couple of other countries might react. Add to that the post was in January this year, over eleven months ago, it's taken them a while to catch on their guidelines were breached  :).

Happy to accept the post wasn't as funny as I thought it was but breaching their guidelines! You have to feel sorry for their sense of humour by-pass, bless <3.

    A couple of weeks ago, I also inadvertently broke Facebook rules.

    Chatting to a friend, I said that my dog was a Yorkie Pomeranian.  FB weren't happy and removed my post.

    I've posted humourish comments and had them removed. My conclusion is FB don't have a sense of humour. You just have to look at Mark Zuckerberg's face to know why.
    You know what uranium is, right? It's this thing called nuclear weapons. And other things. Like lots of things are done with uranium. Including some bad things.

    What rule did this break? Maybe I'm getting on a bit and I don't see the racist/sexist/wokeist overtone in this.

    I didn't understand FB's logic when they removed the post, probably done by algorithms.  I'm going to blame the robots!

    Barney (my Yorkie/Pomeraninan) wasn't impressed either!

    Perhaps FB don't like discussions about breed re-assignment (my dog was a ...)?

    I see the comment by cx6 was too - again how so ???

    Now I get it. This dog's look clearly says.... "I used to be a wolf....look what they did to me.....".

    I'm going to test the MSE algorithms by some word soup agenda assignment leftard fascist gender ban.
