I was watching "Loose Women" the other day (that's not the funny part) and they were talking about throwing bread rolls at each other during a party. Then one of them said that there are people starving in the world and there they are throwing good food away. Then everyone laughed.
Now why is that funny? They've just worked out that people are dying of hunger yet they're throwing this food around. Surely that isn't funny, people are actually dying.
