Oh man, remember The Hangover? That movie was not necessarily my favorite comedy of all time, and it had some difficulties in its depiction of women and minorities, but it was still really funny. I laffed lots of times. Zach Galifianakis, who knew? Just kidding, everyone knew. We were just waiting for the world to catch up. Remember when Zach Galifianakis said “how is your beeper reception in here?”? OMG. Remember when Zach Galifianakis sang that song about being best friends? Remember when Zach Galifianakis started imitating Bradley Cooper’s character? Remember, remember, remember? Lots Of Love at the table, Carlos! The Hangover was the number one movie in the country for a second week in a row. That’s incredible! Congratulations to everyone involved.
And now for the bad news: look at this fucking t-shirt. UGH. So it begins. This is the part where the reality of a runaway comedic hit begins to set in. Much as the Bruno Moral Quandary points out how some monsters cannot be trusted or expected to “get” the joke, the Hangover hangover is where we realize that people don’t necessarily like things for the same reason we do, and some of these people want nothing more than to actually make us embarrassed for enjoying a movie now that it has spawned a cottage industry of incredibly annoying Urban Outfitters t-shirts and drunken barroom shouting of catchphrases. Yes, I get your reference, I saw the movie too. Now cut it out! You’re ruining it! (Via TheDailyWhat.)
