FAMILY GUY PHASING OUT HUMOR AND JOKES
When asked about Family Guy phasing out humor and jokes, the show’s producers had a lot to say.
“The climate is different, the culture is different and our views are different,” Rich Appel said. “They’ve been shaped by the reality around us, so I think the show has to shift and evolve in a lot of different ways.” and it’s hard to disagree. Especially when faced with vacuous statements like “the climate…” and “the culture…” In the world of the offended, logic be damned.
Humans have started a process known as de-evolution, where we slowly lose touch with everything that made us human. The first thing to go is the sense of humor, and Family Guy is following suit by removing it from their show.
“The idea of comedy, really, is not everybody should be laughing. It should be about 50 people laughing, and 50 people horrified. There’s supposed to be people that get it, and people that don’t get it.” a quote from the late great comedian Patrice O’Neal. And that’s why Family Guy was funny, because there was no discrimination. Everyone got their turn to be the butt of the joke.
But the climate…and the culture.
With the rise of self appointed officers at the Politically Correct Police Department (The PCPD), everyone is now safe from the very real danger of becoming offended. Taking offense is a serious mental illness without a cure. This is why Family Guy has decided to join the PCPD, in a progressive move that will decrease the risk of triggering offense.
Context is dead. Instead of properly justifying humor under the context that they’re jokes, everything is literal, and hateful. And oppressive. And toxic. And requires a safe space.
We support the blue, and stand in solidarity with Family Guy’s decision to join the PCPD. You know what they say, if you can’t beat em, join em.
