magine if someone said they worked in a primary school. 'Sometimes I could kill the little tykes when they misbehave!' - that you wouldn't take too seriously. But if you substitute the word 'kill'... Do I need to spell it out?
An excellent point which demonstrates the difference.

I can't think of any context where "rape" could be used in a joking or offhand way.
