How To Get Away With Making Jokes About Tibet

One reason I wasn't particularly offended by Groupon's Super Bowl ad about Tibet is, it really wasn't offensive. But another reason I wasn't offended is, Groupon has a really good sense of humor, and it's harder to offend people if they know you're funny to begin with. (Gilbert Gottfried not withstanding.) A nice reminder of Groupon's sense of humor just arrived in my in-box. This morning, their daily discount email contained a bum link. This is how they apologized. It's hard to get (or stay) mad at a company that's self-effacing, charming, and funny.
