Blacks are funny too (sometimes).

But you know who aren't funny?

Lutherans.

Nice people, sure. Too fucking nice to be funny. :evil:

Like this asshole ...

You are a funny guy.

The implication of the OP is that the only Jews and italians are of the american variety. Screw Haifa and Rome.

A new level of nationalism.

Jews are funny everywhere.

New York Italians are funny (yes that includes Hoboken) because they have assimilated the relevant aspects of Jewish culture.



A good example of of "native" Italian comedy is Topo Gigio. Not funny.

Abdul, you don't know if Jerry Seinfeld is funny. You claim to have never watched it. So:

1. Were you lying?

2. You broke down and watched the funniest series on tv and didn't fucking laugh.

We know number 1 is true. We know you laughed, so, number 2, too.

I have watched short clips said to be the "best of".

I can't be bothered to find it, but I'm pretty sure I mentioned that before.

Seinfeld isn't a comedian he just played one on TV.

Kramer had some sort of injection so Mel Torme thought that he was disabled so he (mel) brings him to a retard benefit and sings to him.

You can tell it's supposed to be funny because of all the laughing.

CL00 4 ed: They laugh because they were paid. So would I in that situation.

Larry David had some really good material, but he saved it for his own show. 8)

sparks: Happy to oblige.

Now enough about me ...

Here's an example of the kind of humor Seinfeld would be *if* he were funny which he is not.



OK it's not Soupy Sales level funny, but there a yuk or two in there.

To demonstrate that you know what you are talking about, post something funny.

Then we'll talk.

Any arm waving or temporizing will demonstrate that you are a poseur and unworthy of high level conversation avec comedic content.

Wait a moment. THAT is an example of what you think is funny?

And you are judging Seinfeld?

OK.

This is the forum version of being hooted off the stage.

I agree it's not all that funny, just better than Seinfeld (by one of Seinfeld's writers).

I already posted something really funny.

Here is is again.

And Sinatra and Davis were not even a professional comedians.
