Where we're going,
we won't need eyes to see.


See topic…

Feel like the world missed out on a universe in which more interesting (fringe) humor was able to take root in the mainstream consciousness. There was an incredible amount of comedic talent on the home page and forums that never seemed to move beyond (until way, way later) beyond the walls of the internet.

It would be cancelled immediately and everyone involved in writing it would be cancelled. Then they would get public support from Jerry Seinfeld.

Always remember that the former President was dumber than the dumbest person you've ever met by a wide margin

I was a writer for SNL until I got into a heated argument with a cast member (who shall remain nameless for legal reasons) and Lorne Michaels dragged me out into the streets of New York City and fired me.

I took the octopath less travelered,

And it made one-eighth the difference.
I was briefly a writer for Conan but they fired me after I'd only offer the same idea each week of Conan pulling down his pants and stretching his anus for forty minutes.

To be fair it's a really loving good idea, I'm still pitching it to other shows.

The problem with SA being mainstream is not the lack of material, its understanding all the background.
"Lurk more" was always good advice from the get-go. If you just threw SA humor onto a TV show, 90% of the viewers would think, "What is this garbage?"

We are very sophisticated and nuanced here. Duh.

Sorry OP, any possible talent and relevance beyond secondary value will forever be squandered on these forums by absentee landlord website owners as well as edgy goonlords who's utter lack of joy in life manifests so completely in their posting that they can't be seen enjoying things.

Honestly this is my biggest problem with a lot of the posting around here, the reductive ignorant nihilism so many posters have. I'm pretty cynical myself, but take it down a notch, post a joke, realize you're an idiot.

That being said, I've seen a thousand one-off posts here that are a hundred times funnier than anything I've ever seen on twitter or something like that. Too bad you're all such loving weirdos

“Turn off your monitor” is a pretty decent signoff line. Maybe the crowd could chant it Wheel of Fortune style
