Is that show supposed to be funny? I imagine it has its moments but wading through all the garbage and apparent inside jokes gets old quick.

It's not funny. Apparently I'm not the only one who thinks so.

I guess satire is a little harder to get.

Those satire writers must be really good limbo dancers.

I certainly don't expect agreement from the leftists that inhabit A2K.

Obviously someone has to find this drivel entertaining or it wouldn't be on TV.

It's a Family Guy thing:

1. giggity giggity 86 up, 4 down


Quagmire, from the series "Family Guy", says this whenever he refers to sex.

Lowis: "Hey Peter, go get something from the concession stand, I need something to suck on."
Quagmire: "GIGGITY GIGGITY?"

or

Quagmire: "How old are you?"
Cheerleader: "Uhh, sixteen."
Quagmire: "Eighteen? Alright"
Cheerleader: "Moooooooom!"
Quagmire: "I like where this is going, GIGGITY GIGGITY, GIG, IT, EE."

Exactly!!!!

Such honesty, cj......yes, you have only a vestigial sense of humour.


It can probably be assisted with training.

Yup, that right there's so funny I forgot to laugh.

I sat through an entire episode of this show last night - kept hoping it might have a moment - it didn't. Just an endless barrage of unfunny - and trust me, I get the "jokes", but they aren't funny.

Tell you what, I'll give it another shot. Maybe I watched a bad episode.

Cj, seriously for a moment, have you ever considered the notion that people have different beliefs and senses of humour? That there are LOTS AND LOTS of people who don't think and react like you, and IT'S OK.....really, it is,...trust me.


It is possible for something to be clever and witty and black, and you just don't like it, but that people who do are not necessarily bad, or wrong...you know, we can appreciate difference, and the world and your head will not explode. Really. Just relax a little.......deep breaths......

Well, I HAVE successfully taught someone to understand The Far Side...it was a long and arduous job, but I did it.


How about having someone who likes the show sit with you and assist?

Well done, deb! Many moons ago during the early days of our long distance relationship, Mr B would read me The Far Side over the phone. I married him anyway.
