Can offensive humor sometimes be good?


I was wondering about this after reading Encyclopedia Dramatica, which goes over the top with racist jokes, anti Semitic jokes, dead baby humor and the like. But at the same time I found it funny. Have you ever laughed at something that's offensive? Is it ok sometimes to have a laugh at who you are? What do you think about Encyclopedia Dramatica and similar usages of crass humor? If you don't care for it, what does humor mean and can things be funny without being (at least a little bit) shocking or offensive?
