The fragile and transitory nature of humour

Are you insulating that Tied has the mind of a 15 year old

 

Ive never been so insulted in my life

Yeah, I started watching Archer. First few episodes are pretty funny where they're aping spy movie tropes, but then the show just devolves into everyone acting like a dick.

Which is sometimes funny. But not funny enough for me to watch.

I guess since the topic is about dicks and apparently everyone in the media has been sucking Jon Stewart's dick for like a month now, I think it's time to share that I've never really ever found him or any of the Comedy Central "fake news" offerings to be remotely close to funny. I attribute this mostly to hipsters and millennials having not only shitty tastes but having no clue that this is so or even possessing the means of discovering this fact. I would say this with smug arrogance if I knew it wasn't Gen-X'ers and Baby Boomers callously taking advantage of the fact that they can shit out any old thing and and it will now be watched.

As for Jon Stewart, if annoying DC "insiders" (interns and poorly paid staffers) or your local NAtional Public Radio host thinks a show is hip or funny, it's not.

I have always seen Stewart's model to be this:

1. Cover some piece on Fox News in the same tone as a standard newscaster but with slight but noticeable breaks in the android-like newscaster facade.

2. Suddenly make surprised faces and blurt out WHAAAAAAT? or REAAAALLLY?

3. ????
 

4. Profit

Yeah. I forgot to mention the stupid facial expressions as he mocks surprise. Which puts him smack dab at the Home Alone shaving scene in terms of his comedic prowess.

I actually fond there stuff funny, sure they were both baised as hell, but they didnt wear it on their fucking sleeve like John Oliver- that miserable limey bastard

 

But alas, now John is being replaced by a young, cool, hip black guy who cant even rely on the Jewish Shtick
