David Letterman Thinks 'Whore' Jokes Are Funny, But Does His Audience Find Humor In It???

Hmm… It's time to retire this joke.

David Letterman was doing his normal pre-show warm up with his Late Show audience on Monday, when he decided to drop a sexist joke on them all.

A college student on-staff asked David for some life advice to give graduates, to which Mr. Letterman replied:

"Treat a lady like a whore, and a whore like a lady."

W-O-W. But based on his affair-filled past we're not finding it hard to believe that joke was on the tip of his tongue. The saying reportedly originated in the 1930s, from screenwriter Wilson Mizner, and it's somehow still being used by people.

One source said the crowd was so stunned that they went silent, so the show host quickly added to be nice to people and "eat a lot of salad." Well, we can all agree with those two.

High school teacher Joe Logan was among the silent crowd members, and noted, "Younger people watch his show. We already live in a culture that objectifies women, it's not right to make a joke like that."

Mr. Letterman's people declined to confirm or comment on the failed joke, but one show source did add, "It got a big laugh." Sure, maybe "A" big laugh…

Do U think the joke was in bad taste???
