“The gallows are a really popular hang out spot if you ask me”

The gallows is where people are executed by hanging. It’s not a place to “hang out,” but there are jokes.

“The Gallows seems like a good place to hang out” was posted on Twitter by Richard Murnane on July 14, 2011. “The gallows is a great hang out spot” was posted on Twitter by William H. Bonnie on May 29, 2012. “The gallows are a really popular hang out spot if you ask me” was posted on Reddit—Oneliners on May 22, 2021.


Wikipedia: Gallows
Gallows (or scaffold) are a frame, typically wooden, from which objects can be hung or “weighed”. Gallows were thus widely used for public weighing scales for large objects such as sacks of grain or minerals, usually positioned in markets or toll gates. The term was also used for a framework from which a ship’s anchor might be raised so that it is no longer sitting on the bottom, i.e., “weighing [the] anchor”.

In modern usage it has come to mean almost exclusively a scaffold or gibbet used for execution by hanging.
