u/TheBigYellowCar shared, "I once worked with a Brit who lost a foot in his previous career as a SAS guy. He showed me a pic of him in hospital post-surgery with his coworkers. They gave him a bag of gummy bears with the left foot bit off. Brutal, but he loved that pic and showed it to everyone." Another individual, u/Bomb_Diggity, said, "Love it! My mom was in a wheelchair. Growing up, whenever she would ask me to get something for, I'd say, 'Get it yourself! That's what God gave you legs for!' Then I'd do it, of course. It always caught other people off guard." 

In the comments, the student revealed that in his family, dark humor is preferred more. "I am extremely fine. My parents are both wonderful human beings who love me dearly. They fought extremely hard through tons of discrimination and inaccessibility to get me to college at all. We have a dark sense of humor in my family. I never was and never will be exempt from that humor. I give it, so I have to be able to take it. And I love that my family is this way."
