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.

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 ti 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.

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.

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.

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

And you are judging Seinfeld?

OK.

Good god, that's awful. Pie in the face slapstick?
Sinatra asks for Italian dressing for his salad, the waiter brings over an Italian man putting on his coat.

I gotta agree with ed, Abdul. That bit with Kramer and Mel Torme was pure genius. I couldn't help laughing out loud. Even Mel has trouble keeping it together.

He thought that the bit with Mel Torme was so accurate and real that we would mistake it for a clip from a documentary so he had to explain that it was acted.

Gee Abdul, does that mean that the other people were acting too? You mean it wasn't real? Wow!!

What makes me think that Abdul does stand up and is trying out new material on us?
Listen ladies and germs, there hasn't been anything funny since Soupy hit Frank with a pie. And that includes me!!!!

I heard about this. Apparently not everyone of the LGBT persuasion was impressed by Auntie Harris's virtue signaling. It was cringey.

But hey: these are their rules. We're all supposed to say our pronouns now when we introduce ourselves even if it's totally obvious.

Fredo's sin was making a joke about it. It's totally serious business, you see.

LGB may go along out of political solidarity, but gay and bi men are conventionally "he" and lesbian and bi women are conventionally "she".
¡Punto no una coma!
True, and I know that, but it's also more of a non-binary or "genderqueer" thing. Most transsexuals who can pass prefer the traditional pronouns for the gender they perform.

It's funny, because when people post "Evasion noted", they don't actually make a note of it.

Soupy's story about getting in trouble (from the network broadcasting his kids' show) for having kids send him money from Mommy's purse through the mail while the parents were sleeping was pretty funny.
