Here on About.com, I try to keep things out of the bathroom, so to speak. I refer to body parts and medical problems by their proper names, and I don't make jokes of diarrhea or gas. After all, when you have IBD and are dealing with those symptoms, it's not funny, not even remotely.
That being said, I do come across quite a few things that might be funny as a "gag" gift for someone who has, or lives with someone who has IBD. It's therapeutic to laugh at ourselves, after all, but I am not sure how I would feel if someone gave me a gag gift of this type.
What do you think? Is it OK with you to give or receive a funny gift, or would you just rather skip it? Take the poll below!
