FridayQ - Funny

weather: cloudy
outside: 18°C
mood: amused
FridayQ for Friday, September 3, 2004.

FQ2: What's something that others find funny, but you don't?

The Simpsons. userinfoHusband Guy used to think I didn't understand the jokes, but I do and I can explain why they're supposed to be funny. And I know they're Equal Opportunity Offenders, but I'm not even offended at anything. I'm just bored. I don't find it funny or clever or silly. It's just garbage to me.

Then, the Husband said maybe it was just too lowbrow for me, but I am very capable of laughing at other lowbrow, base humour, stupid people and stupid things, so it's not that either... *splutter* "Is Wayne Brady gonna have to choke a bitch?" XD

What's odd is, I find Futurama funnier. It's more or less the same stuff, different pile and done by mostly the same writers... so, I'm not sure why The Simpsons is so blah to me.

FQ3: What actor/comedian/personality always makes you laugh? What movie? What book?

  • userinfoMy Husband. At the drop of a hat. Always.
  • userinfoFoxTrot. What Bill Amend said to pne was true, there will be times when I don't find the strip funny. It's been sputtering as of late, but it hasn't gone completely downhill.
  • userinfoDave Barry
  • Woody Allen
  • Rowan Atkinson
  • Whose Line Is It Anyway? Colin Mochrie, Ryan Stiles, Wayne Brady, Kathy Greenwood, Greg Proops, Clive Anderson and Drew Carey.

    Four words: a foal being born. O. M. G.

AHAHAHAHA I've seen the foal being born one. Oh My God, Ryan Stiles is a genius. Well, so are Colin and Wayne....

Have you seen the episode where they brought in Richard Simmons for a few sketches? I don't think they will ever top that.

I didn't see that one!!! Was it in the Clive Anderson or the Drew Carey version?

Drew Carey

Oh man, I think I laughed hysterically for the entire 10 minutes he was on screen. I was crying, and my stomach was cramping. It was absolutely breathtaking. Let's just say they took full advantage of the fact that Richard Simmons is flaming gay, and he went along with it just beautifully.

I can't believe they broadcast that show on ABC Family Channel!

I find "The Simpsons" boring too. There are a lot of comedies in the past few years that I just do not find enjoyable. I always thought it was because I was becoming old.

I don't find the Simpsons funny at all. I also do not think that "Family Guy" is funny, but all of my friends are obsessed. I don't get it.
Foxtrot's my favorite =D

Futurama is definitely nerdier than the Simpsons. The writers can get away with injecting lots more obscure references to quantum physics, astronomy, and computers because it's the future! It's amazing listening to those guys. To me, the audio commentaries are almost as entertaining as the original episodes.

I used to find The Simpsons funny, but now it's just horrible.

Futurama, Whose Line, and Foxtrot do most certainly rock. And Dave Barry...Dave Barry is the funniest person in existence, as far as I'm concerned.

So, yes, I basically agree with you.
