Fundamental Truth

Marijuana and Youth make Juvenile Humor Funny

When I was a wee little one I used to read Mad Magazine.  Granted, most of the political humor was over my head.  But there was a lot of stuff in that magazine that made me laugh.  Many years later I can still remember some of that humor.  Including a piece about two sober people attending a George Carlin standup comedy show.

Marijuana had just migrated from the counterculture to the general population.  And into our schools.  A lot of school kids were getting high.  Which is what people did back then at concerts.  Rock concerts.  And standup comedy.  Especially with a counterculture icon like George Carlin.  With his seven dirty words you can’t say on television.  And all his trouble with ‘the man’ because of those seven dirty words.

At a George Carlin comedy show in that Mad Magazine piece they showed a crowd laughing their behinds off.  While the two sober people aren’t even cracking a smile.  Finding nothing funny.  What they hear is juvenile humor that might make a child laugh.  But not a mature adult.  Then the punch-line is something like this.  One of the two sober people says, “This is the last time we come to one of these concerts without getting stoned first.”

Liberal Audiences are like Children in Grade School who will laugh if someone calls their Teacher a Poopy Head

Smoking marijuana tends to make people laugh.  Almost without being able to stop laughing.  For everything is funny when high.  The more juvenile the funnier.  Where poopies and passing gas are just plain hilarious.  As their state of mind is not exactly at its sharpest level.  Regressing back to childhood.  And laughing at the same things they laughed at as a child.  Among other things.  Kids will always laugh when someone rips a loud one.  While adults are typically disgusted and just want to move away.

The young typically vote liberal.  And enjoy the liberal television shows.  The people laughing in the audiences of Saturday Night Live and The Daily Show are either young or liberal.  Or both.  Who don’t need to be stoned to laugh.  As long as it’s juvenile.  And it attacks conservatives.  Which they find funny.  Or know the proper thing for a liberal to do is to laugh whenever anyone makes fun of a conservative.

Liberal audiences are like those stoned people watching George Carlin in that Mad Magazine.  While conservatives are like those two sober people trying to figure out what’s so funny.  Those liberal audiences are like children in grade school who will laugh if someone calls their teacher a poopy head.  Only on liberal television they’re calling conservatives poopy heads.  While the grownups find little humor in this or being the butt of a joke.  And a bad joke at that.

It was really only in the Last Year that Liberal Late-Night Television made fun of President Obama

One of the worst things about being conservative is enduring the unfunny comedy on liberal television.  A lot of us grew up watching Saturday Night Live.  And laughed our asses off when Dan Aykroyd called Jane Curtain an ignorant slut on Point Counterpoint.  When poor Mr. Bill got squashed by Mr. Hand.  When Phil Hartman did Frank Sinatra in the Sinatra Group (I got chunks of guys like you in my stool).  Christopher Walken saying he needed more cowbell.  And so many more classic moments.  Over time, though, the show wasn’t as funny as it once was.  Especially for conservatives.

During the George W. Bush administration SNL was brutal.  They hated Bush.  And the writing showed it.  It was funny if you hated Bush, too.  But if you were a conservative you basically were insulted for 90 minutes of television.  And then there was Tina Fey.  And her Sarah Palin impersonation.  Where all the SNL viewers heard Fey say as Palin that she knew all about foreign policy because she could see Russia from her porch in Alaska.  Something Sarah Palin never said.  But the world believed she did after watching SNL.

Parody is one thing.  And SNL did it better than most.  With cast members like Phil Hartman, Will Ferrell and Darrell Hammond giving us some of the most memorable impersonations.  But through the years those parodies got ruder and meaner when it came to skewering those on the right.  But treaded lightly when it came to those on the left.  It was really only in the last year that liberal late-night television made fun of President Obama.  Causing those on the right to laugh their asses off.  Because for once liberals are not mean and rude but truly funny.  For it no doubt pains them to even lampoon those on the left.  And they only will do it when the comic material is just too good to pass up.  Unlike their attacks on the right.  Where Jon Stewart on The Daily Show calls those on the right the most vulgar of names.  While his audience laughs their asses off.  Just as if some kid called their teacher a poopy head.
