    It's not spitefulness. It's grieving for what's been lost.

    If they also have a parrot on their shoulder then all bets are off. Otherwise no jokes for just an eyepatch.

    What were the pirate’s words when he blew out the candles on his 80th birthday cake?

    Yeah, you internalize by posting on a forum full of folks who use LOL and no doubt may have been offended by your characterization, but yet you come to those same people looking for empathy.

    Wrong.

    I know better than that.

    By the way, it's called "venting" (on both counts).

    It's what we do here.


    If you don't like it, you certainly have the option to simply ignore.

    I've retired, but the motto from the school where I taught is still with me: "Once a Pirate, Always a Pirate!" So you see I am a pirate, but I would never make jokes about a person wearing an eyepatch.

    blowtorch, you haven't said why you're wearing it or how long you'll have to wear it, but I sincerely hope your recovery is quick and full. I'm sorry you've had to endure inconsiderate, boorish, immature "kidding" about the patch. There is no excuse for it.

    Hmm. I was expecting this thread to be funnier then it turned out to be. Eye patch jokes are bad. Ok, got it.

    I suffered an Retinal Arterial Occlusion in my left eye about 18 months ago leaving me blind in that eye.
    Do to fear that my right eye will suffer the same fate I have to get an injection in my right eye once a week in hopes of strengthening the arteries in the retina against Occlusion because obviously if I lose my sight in the right eye, I’ll be totally blind.
    My right eye struggles to focus because of the bits of light that enter my left eye confusing my brain. At times I often wear an eye patch on my left eye to help my right eye focus, especially if I go outside into bright light.
    I’m not overly sensitive to jokes making fun of my situation, however I think it could get offensive fairly quick.
    Frankly I don’t see that much humor in an eye patch, but if you do then have at it.

    One of my old martial arts instructors said "There's no better feeling than being shot at and missed." I think a lot of humour is based on this feeling....it's something almost primal where you're nervous system is rejoicing in the fact that it wasn't your turn. Slapstick and the sort of humour this post is about is born out of that feeling IMO.

    Brother, I'm sorry for your eye problem and hope it gets better in time!
    But I also have all kinds of problems that make me legally disabled, but if I threw these problems out on a public forum, and didn't expect to take some hell for it, I'd consider myself mentally disabled tooo_O

    I'm very happy for you that you have a real-life support system that you can lean on for these types of things.

    Be grateful.
    Not everyone has that.
