A stand-up comedian in the US has won the right to crack jokes on her in-laws.
A stand-up comedian in the US has won the right to crack jokes on her in-laws. Sunda Croonquist was sued two years ago after her mother-in-law, sister-in-law and brother-in-law said her jokes were holding them up to public ridicule. A mother-in-law joke she cracked goes like this: “My husband decides to introduce me to my mother-in-law in the car, he leans over and says we are not going tell mommy you are black. I say that’s smart, she’ll never notice. Which she noticed and that’s when I noticed that Jews can’t whisper, have you noticed, ladies and gentlemen?” The US district judge of New Jersey said her jokes fell in the category of protected speech.
