All Edges, In Fact. Just One Long Edge.

Today's Failbook fail: You Can't Beat a Night Like That.

Person #1: I've always said the more bruises you wake up with, the better the night, but this is just ridiculous
Person #2: Told you not to go drinking with Chris Brown.

For the seven people who never heard, Chris Brown pleaded guilty to physically assaulting his then-girlfriend, Rihanna. Both of them are famous musicians, which might be why this domestic violence case was actually taken seriously by the police.

On the scale of social acceptability, I like to believe that intimate partner violence jokes rate as slightly more acceptable than rape jokes, but less so than more run-of-the-mill sexism. Of course, Failbook trucks in all three, because they are edgy.
