Gabe doesn’t seem very bright to me. For starters, he doesn’t seem to understand the proper usage of the words “gross” and “yuck.” More importantly, it’s very arrogant of him to think that he understands how comedy works better than such a well known and successful comedian. Lastly, he was dead wrong when he said this:
“’If you come in with the agenda of ‘I don’t like this guy and I’m going to try and stitch him up,’ then Ricky’s stand-up, his interviews, everything he does — you’ll find a way of interpreting it that supports your view,” Merchant said. “He’s acerbic, he’s direct. And if you’re a fan of his, you can see it in a different way.’
Right. No, this is true. But this is also called HOW ALL HUMAN BEINGS ATTEMPT TO GAUGE AND CLASSIFY EACH OTHER IN OUR WORLD OF SOCIAL RULES AND COMPLEX EMOTIONAL INTERACTIONS.”
Not everybody attempts to gauge and classify each other in that way. There are some people who actually get some information before forming an opinion, and are capable of changing their opinion based on new information.
