Have always enjoyed "height of" jokes (hope everyone's heard of them), but received one in an e-mail today that was in very bad taste.
Q. What is the height of laziness?
A. Adopting a child.
I know someone who has adopted a child (after braving a lot of legal procedures), and I think it is a very beautiful thing to do.
Maybe this "joke" wasn't meant to be taken so seriously, but still... hmmm...
