Non-Kosher Entertainment

It is forbidden to relate a story for entertainment purposes only, if it contains derogatory or harmful information.

To relate an amusing incident that would cause embarrassment to any of the people involved if told in their presence constitutes speaking loshon hara. Many a humorous situation is actually quite painful to the person involved.
