God Is My Co-Pirate: Sometimes Cracked is funny. This is not one of those times.
cfreak: I'm not usually a "Cracked" hater but I mean really? This is a list of the author's own jokes. Telling us to look at how funny and edgy he is because he mocked political correctness, death and mac users!
Ronnie_Zman: TFA = Look how wise article writer is on comedy edginess; stay for the climactic idolgasm of Gerg Giraldo.
poot_rootbeer: 4. Your joke reduces an entire sexual identity to the practice of sodomy and coprophagy. You don't get credit for volunteering yourself to be the butt of the joke (LOL BUTT), because in the end the joke is still about laughing AT homosexual activity (IN THE END LOL). And your vehemence towards "political correctness" is about 2 decades stale at this point.3. You're correct that joking about a public figure's death can be funny. Your examples from your own Twitter feed are too oblique and/or too trite to be funny.2. Satire consists of more than "saying the opposite of what you mean." Which is why your gay marriage piece earned you so much criticism; you didn't do an effective job of underlining the absurdities of the point of view you're allegedly embracing. Chalk it up to Poe's Law: somewhere on the Internet there's a column just like yours expressing an anti-gay-marriage perspective, except completely serious.1. Jesus Christ I watched that whole 6-minute clip and I have no idea how you constructed that bizarre David vs. Goliath narrative out of it. A group of comedians arguing over the quality of each others' material? See every writers' office and green room in the industry. You're a comedy writer and you think that Greg Giraldo did something exceptional there?
Mugato: While I wouldn't have polished his knob quite so sloppily, Greg Giraldo was funny. Leary looked like he was going to cry after that Russia zinger. Giraldo left himself wide open with that quip about Leary's show getting cancelled though.
Ronnie_Zman: TFA = Look how wise article writer is on comedy edginess; stay for the climactic idolgasm of Gerg Giraldo. I'm amazed the words are all spelled correctly after plastering a creampie onto his keyboard. If you listen closely, you can still hear him sobbing as he typed #1.
On the Side: Just Another OC Homeless Guy:That article was a complete waste of time. Cracked, how could you? I thought you were sorta cool.You did?
