humour: "deadpan" or dry

Postby soup alex on Sun Mar 26, 2006 9:45 pm

I'm thinking particularly of these two irrepressable genii:

Jack "this is my happy face" Dee,

and Jimmy "feedline, punchline, next joke" Carr.


Both, I think you will agree, are experts in their field. This being of course the field of professionally unfunny (if that didn't make you laugh, you have no choice but to vote crap)

Go ahead and rub it in, why don't you!

I actually have no idea who the first guy is. I know very little of Bob Newhart. I think Steve Wright is an exceptionally funny person.

Maybe I should have called this: "arrogant shitheads"

the first man is Mitch Hedberg. if you've not heard him, you should put forth a tremendous amount of effort to do so. check out "Strategic Grilling Locations."

I dislike like dry, deadpan humor with an extreme prejudice. It is snobbish, smartypants, and quite frankly arrogant.

Here I have posted an image of one of the great masters of this reprehensible form of humor within the academic world.....I took a metaphysics class from her. Can you name her? I will personally mail 10 US dollars to the first person who can name her and tell me what she's all about, ry humor notwithstanding.....offer expires 3.31.06

You took a metaphysics class with Eugene Levy?

No wonder you're fucked.

When I say "metaphysics", it is not what you are presuming it to be, Mr.-Arlington-Fruitbat-who-flew-to-Noo-Yawk

Man, you really had me going there, man-who-assumes-the-internet-identity-of-"matthew." But you gave yourself away here.

Still, I think walter's achievement is far more astounding. But you gave it a good try, man-who-assumes-the-internet-identity-of-"matthew."

Fag.

Oh, come on. Real or not real, Matthew is still as likable as anyone else here. I can see that the regulars are all sick of him, but I could stand to hear more from him.

His opinions are not very much like mine, and that's cool. Also, he voted Crap on these comedians.

Oops. I'd like to retract this cos I read it as "His opinions are very much like mine". I look like an idiot now. Sorry, Soup Alex.

Si-maro's technique here reminds me of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 Nintendo/arcade game. The jumpkick, which sent you plummeting down at 45 degrees to the ground with your leg extended, had great utility, but since this was one of those games where a jump sends you way up in the air, you couldn't really jumpkick an enemy who stood right next to you, or you'd go clear over his head. So what you had to do, was to jump away from your opponent, and once you had established lateral distance, reverse the course of your jump in mid air and kick, sending you down at an angle toward the enemy. That's basically what si-maro did here. Salut, si-maro. I laughed when I read your comment.
