  1. I have never found the f-bomb to be a ‘funny’ word.   Attacks against one’s looks have never been funny.  Profanity and coarse language are not funny.  It’s all cheap, any low character person is capable of using coarse language or being a bully.  Nothing clever or funny about it.

    I would also like to say, I grow weary of the ‘it’s comedy’ or ‘i’m just exercising my free speech’ excuses.  The response to the first is, no it is not.  The response to the second is, so what.

    To those kin with MWolf, here’s my 2 cents: The idea of my not thinking kindly of your speech is not interference with your free speech.  So quit whining and deflecting; let’s get back on topic.   The fact is, the topic is, your potty mouth is unbecoming, and it’s self-invalidating.   Talk with a friend or see a mentor/therapist about your need to shame yourself with ugly language, in the meantime please, at least attempt to  exhibit some level of emotional maturity.  On your path to sobriety, ‘I’m sorry’ is a good first step.

  2. I find very little “comedy” funny at all these days. When I watch old shows like Frasier, Monk, Barney Miller, WKRP, Taxi, I find myself laughing heartily. Much of what passes as comedy these days is nothing more than condescension and snark. It’s not clever, and it takes minimal intelligence and effort. Schneider is right. You see it manifesting in the sea of generic nothingness that is most of comedy today. Instead of laughing at the joke, we’re laughing at the butt of the joke. We’ve moved from laughing with each other in a good-natured way to laughing at each other in a mean-spirited way.

    It is not even clever.

    The best laughs are at ourselves not others. Mean spirited humor is not funny. Have you ever noticed how these people can’t take it after they have dished out truck loads?
