Who knew there was even a reboot out?

That's just kind of a pointless, weak joke full of dumb red flags. How bad was the rest of the script?

I've seen about half of the new season and it's pretty funny while still being Saved By the Bell. But I enjoyed the original one unironically, so what do I know.

One user wrote how the "Saved By the Bell" jokes brought her dad "to tears," after their grandmother passed away from lupus. "This is something that affects me a lot," the person wrote.

Yes, Selena had a lot of guts as the fatal shooting by her fired manager later showed.

/sorry, I thought it odd Fark was bringing up a singer killed 25 years ago but...but it's Fark where all things wild and wacky can occur.  I mean I once saw this picture of Emma Watson and it looked fake so someone asked for an original and they posted a picture of Dwayne Johnson.  Bloody brilliant.

Well, to tell the truth, the show is a spoof about high school, and that is conversation that would probably be heard at a high school today

A month or so ago, real estate company Re/Max had these ads on TV saying "It's time...." (I can't even remember what it was time for.  Something about the pandemic maybe?)
Anyway, they kept saying "It's time...." and here is a screen cap:

How many people did this commercial have to go in front of before getting to air?
No one caught this.

And the commercial aired for months.  At LEAST for one month.  I saw it several times a day.  No one caught this.

That's my feeling on this story.  Not ONE person said "We can't make fun of this!  Especially on a show where her audience IS the target audience!"

/Sure, his method of transplanting kidneys is a little unorthodox, but it's his brash single mindedness that sets him a part from his contemporaries.

There's a whole bunch of conversations that would happen in a high school that you would not use in a script for a tv comedy.

FTFA: Two teens debate who donated a kidney to the 28-year-old ... when one student quips, "Does Selena Gomez even have kidneys?"

I'm genuinely baffled. Even setting aside the question of taste, I don't understand why that would be funny. It sounds as funny as asking "Does Miley Cyrus even have a gallbladder?" or "Does Vanessa Hudgens even have a spleen?".

What am I missing?

Article is wrong. "Does Selena Gomez even have kidneys?" is written in graffiti on one of Bayside High's locker rooms. Sheesh, fake news.

Yes, that's extremely widely known. So she definitely has one kidney. That's why I don't understand how its funny to as if she has kidneys?

Am I being dense?

She probably has anywhere from one to three. Sometimes they don't take out the clunker.

You're missing the laugh track.

Teen 1: something about kidneys
Hahshshaahahhahahah
Teen 2: something about Selena Gomez
Hahahahahaaaahaahaahah
Teen 1: does she even have kidneys
Hahahahahahahahahahahaha

Thats how sitcoms work

Sometimes jokes are about starting a conversation.  The initial kneejerk reaction is to laugh or be offended or whatever, but sometimes it forces you to think about the actual message.

There's a reason Zac Efron nicknamed her privates B.G., short for Billy Gibbons.

/No, he didn't really do that. That I know of.

The 10s of people on Twitter that were actually upset, and the movement anger crowd that jumps on the bandwagon.  It sounds much like an original saved by the bell joke, late 80s early 90s were a different time

I've never been so tempted to go to twitter and call a stranger's dad a gigantic pu$$y in all my life. But it has to be fake.

That person's dad should stay away from the Bad News Bears if he is that sensitive about references to Lupus.

And sometimes transplants go badly, so I would not speculate as to how many kidneys she has.

That's not sagging even a little. I'm a moobless guy and that's exactly where mine are -- just a bit under the 'pits. Perhaps you were thinking of a different species?

*sigh*
The joke wasn't about her kidneys. The point (heh,heh) was that dumb kids believe things they read on the internet and then argue them like they're facts. It'd be funnier if I couldn't currently see the Politics tab at the top of the page.

I've heard that he's a very nice person IRL, quite the opposite of Zack Morris. On a similar note it's well known that Screech is a complete twat.
