I prefer this one, which I believe was posted on the forum before. At least this one has more of a joke to it than just straight lip syncing.

Here’s Seinfeld, arbiter of what’s funny and why, dissecting the frog in the NYT and I think thoroughly missing the point.


I mean yeah the one you posted is great as a singular joke, but as a genre, I don't think it has much life in it.

Y'know, I don't think these comic strips are meant to be funny. They're just meant to remind people going through mental difficulties that they're not alone.

I suspect there's probably hentai that covers that but I'm sure as fuck not going to attempt to confirm it.

A good 99% of social media's attempts at satirising the whole Dominic Cummings thing has been beyond feeble. Smug, ill thought out and wholly unoriginal content. The last five days has been utterly unbearable.

To be fair, it's difficult to make the situation more absurd than it actually is.

WHY are they so doggedly committed to this illiterate house style? I mean besides "there's no incentive to change because people fucking follow and like this worthless shit anyway".

It's not funny because you have no emotional involvement in something you've literally only found out about 10 seconds before, and while briefer, the conjunction "as" doesn't provide any more of a connection than "whence" or "notwithstanding" would. It's very similar to the other lowest form of humour i.e. describing a newspaper cartoon and reading out the punchline. But at least nobody has to look at Giles.

EDIT: Is the show's logo meant to be a t-shirt?
EDIT2: Or a mushroom?
