Various theorists punctuate particularities coatings and modulations at the present time, our interest here is for those that relate to the phenomena and process related to human subjectivity as, perceptions of the world, the construction of discourses, among others. We have many examples of contemporary scholars, among others: David Harvey, which characterizes the present time as a time where there is full acceptance of the ephemeral, the fragmentary, the discontinuous and chaotic; Zygmunt Bauman, who points to the absence of the senses, which is caused by the culture of excess we are immersed; and Gilles Lipovetsky, the author who coined the term Humorous Society for describe today's society, which feels completely permeated by the discourse of a fun and light humor. In this scenario we are concerned to reflect on a little accepted form of discourse, however, in our opinion, very fruitful in producing reflections via their acid e corrosive critical, which is the politically incorrect humor, as well as analyze some of its developments - for example, its big counterpoint which is the politically correct discourse, and multiple insertions in the world contemporary.
