My Twitter feed serves up a strange run of male humor.

Suddenly, I get this:

Links: 1, 2, 3

I know Crosby's only passing something else along, and it's from an account that presents a female identity, but I'm counting that as Crosby's humor, replete with the casualness of masturbation and second-hand jokes.

Python - it runs the gamut from extremely sophisticated to wildly slapstick (worthy of The Three Stooges) all within the same sketch.

Only one of these 3 is a professional humorist, and to me, he's clearly the best.

Quaestor said...

It's definitely NUMBER ONE. After more decades than I dare count, this scene always reminds me of those rabid wild beasts I deserve to be condemned to battle in the area.

As for NUMBER TWO, humorwise it's definitely number two, if you know what I mean.

"masturbation and second-hand jokes"

Oh Ann

Temujin said...

Ya gotta love all of them. Man humor. Where would we be without it?

Question is: what were you Tweeting about or following to have that come to you?

rhhardin said...

None of them are funny. You need at least two and preferably more of
1. Clever
2. Naughty
3. Cruel
4. Cute
5. Recognizable

Just one doesn't cut it.

Alpha, Beta, Gamma. I like the Gamma best!

W.Cook said...

The problem with #2 is that the joke is spoiled because almost everybody has to go look up the definition of Anhedonia and the identity of Dan Hedaya

Quaestor said...

Althouse writes, "I like the Gamma best!"

Well, you would prefer the Gamma, wouldn't you? With the third eye and the phosphorescent orange Afro.

Gamma. Think about the ramifications, lady!

Suggesting a need for a delta variant?

I have a friend who once told me, 'I was having sex like crazy when I went to college. Of course, it was only with myself...'

Biggus Dickus is classic...only women won't laugh.

Imagine if "Imagine" were written in 2021 - would cancelling "humor" and "gender" make the list needed to unify the world?

Quaestor said...

Number Three is Henny Youngman-style throw-away material. It works best when followed by a rimshot and "Take my wife...Please!"

"Masturbation" "Second Hand" I swear sometimes I think I'm 12

"masturbation and second-hand"

That's wittier than what Crosby thought was funny.

3 is a rehash of a Woody Allen joke from Love and Death:

--"You are a great lover."

--"Thanks, I practice a lot when I'm alone."
