It’s a joke already… fuck it, let’s bring in a comedian

-by Kid Bucket-

Last night, something happened that I was hoping would happen for a long time.

No, no one announced a sequel to “Starsky and Hutch”.

6 Seasons and a Movie!

-by Kid Bucket-

Those of you who have known me for more than 5 minutes know that I am a HUGE TV buff. On average, I watch an average of way too many shows per year and love to discuss the intricacies of how to balance a show season to season, and useless stuff like that. I am also a fan of the genius NBC comedy Community: it is not only the best written comedy on television but also contains the best ensemble cast on television.

That’s why I was heartbroken when it was announced that 30 Rock will be taking its spot mideason, mostly due to the former show having extremely anemic ratings. I was sad and depressed over how sad and depressed I was after I read this news, but I have come to terms with my unnecessary reaction to something that has little to no effect on my well-being.

But seeing this amazing example of why Community deserves to be on the air over most of the other comedies on television (Mike and Molly: Get it? They’re fat!) has brought back my sadness over the impending cancellation with a vengeance. In the last clip, watch behind the girl at the computer, and prepare to witness the first easter egg gag set up over the course of THREE SEASONS.

You might want to grab a bucket, because your mind is going to explode.

anti-comedy and shaggy republicans

-by Kid Bucket-

I was doing some Wikipedia-ing today (part-time employment!) and came across one of my favorite posts. Wikipedia describes Anti-Comedy as:

Anti-humor (or anti-comedy) and anti-jokes (also known as unjokes) are a kind of humor based on the absence of an expected joke or punch line in a narration which is set up as a joke.

Where haitibabies was born!

-by Kid Bucket-

In case any of you have wondered how these two writers formed into the mega-awesome blog an average of 30 of you read on a daily basis (seriously, tell your friends), we met through Rolling Stone’s Supreme Court of Assholedom. Put together by writer Matt Taibbi almost a year ago, we have judged a wide array of people, from Dan Snyder (Owner of the Washington Redskins) to Elton John (Singer of Awesomeness). This is the most recent court ruling…

androids among us

-by Nerdface-

“It’s like they made Katy Perry to lull us in, and then Ann Coulter to scare us.”

Do you ever get the feeling that some famous people/celebrities aren’t 100% human?  Like maybe aliens made them to further some diabolical alien-agenda.  (Because everyone has an agenda, you know.)

Maybe it’s just me.

(And no, I’m not talking abut Lizard People.)

What’s funny is really funny unless it’s not funny then it’s wrong.

-by Kid Bucket-

Comedy.

It’s a very hard thing to categorize generally, from person to person. For example, A Fish Called Wanda is a hilarious movie (if you disagree you are wrong and we will take this out back and fight to the death like gentlemen) but not everyone likes Bored to Death (which just means you don’t get it and are dumb). Other than what not liking these two examples says about you, if you don’t think something is funny doesn’t mean it’s not comedy. South Park has been proving this for years, with just about every group of people on earth. I have laughed at every single episode of South Park I have ever seen, even the episode about gingers not having souls (it’s not as funny now, thanks people who think that repeating everything you hear ad nauseum is still hilarious I’M RICK JAMES BITCH!). But I am sure there are some Catholics who don’t like “Red Hot Catholic Love”, and some Mormons who don’t like “All About Mormons”.

I would mention Scientologists and “Trapped in the Closet”, but Tom Cruise would probably just sue me in England.

Which brings me to my point…

in case you were wondering what is going to take over the news cycle for the next forever.

-by Kid Bucket-

I hate to be the one to tell you this, in fact I don’t know how Ryan Seacrest was able to tweet it, but I will pull through because dammit! I have journalistic integrity.

Kim Kardashian is filing for divorce from Kris Humphries.

I know I know, before you fall into your mental pit of sadness (I had to pull out of mine long enough to write this) remember, marriage is still a sacred institution because the gays can’t get it. America will always be the strongest country in the world so long as we have that antiquated ideal firmly in our grasp.
