Part of an appeal to not be offended on behalf of others:

I mean, if he'd replied to that hideous and obviously impractical macro with "Go boil your head", despite being something you could interpret as a command to greviously injure myself, I'd have gotten a chuckle out of it and assumed he was being facetious. If anything, I'd be more upset that he hadn't taken the opportunity to tell me to throw some vegetables in with my head when I boiled it to at least make a semi-decent "pork" broth.
