shanks for nothin
I was pretty disappointed at the Ambiguously Gay Duo sketch. I guess I just felt like its time had long passed. I don’t mean to argue that it’s homophobic or offensive really, (it’s obviously satire, and I think it’s well established that all of the participants have the proper open-minded stances on the subject) just that, if that’s not it, I don’t really get the joke? Is it really, as I have heard it expressed, just a mock-up of 50′s comic book tropes? If so, is that really a thing that needs to be lampooned these days?
I get that the joke isn’t on gay people exactly, but simply stated, the joke is, “they’re gay!”, right? “Dicks! Butts! They’re gaaaaaay, get it?” I’m fine with that, I just don’t see why its funny.
It was Mike. I was about to comment on this. Between the “fuckin monkey” and “gay fondue”, he really brought the Top Awful this week. I just can’t figure out why they chose to leave that in there. I thought Bravo was supposed to be NBC’s enlightened gay cousin or something?
ummm… i’d say we’re burying the lede a bit here. Mr. Silvestri has just tweeted some VERY IMPORTANT NEWS that is more than a little relevant concerning a certain ACTION MOVIE STAR of interest around these parts: http://twitter.com/maxsilvestri
WE NEED DETAILS!
I had a visceral reaction immediately when I saw the screen cap of the girl and I couldn’t place why. Until i hit play. My younger sister must have watched this an average of twice a day for a solid year back in the day. My brother and I hated the whipped cream girl with a fiery passion.
I basically had this song in my head for a lengthy portion of my childhood, and I am pretty afraid now that it’s back. So, thanks.
I, too, live in San Diego! AAAAAND I like pizza! I will come to your nerd hive pizza party!
ummm…. maybe because FOREVER?!!! That’s why.
UMM, you kinda have to be incognito if you are trying to stalk SOMEONE’S WHOLE ENTIRE LIFE!
So, I’m a lurker, but I feel like I have to say this: I know that we are all on a similar intellectual page and that our humor needn’t be explained, but until I saw these pictures, I honestly did think that Gabe was appx. 55-60 years old. Like, at first, I knew it was a joke, but then, at some point I got convinced that it wasn’t, and I was all, we should all be so lucky as to have a culturally relevant website when we are 60! Punk’dgum!
