Comments from shanks for nothin

I was pretty disappointed at the Ambiguously Gay Duo sketch. I guess I just felt like its time had long passed. I don’t mean to argue that it’s homophobic or offensive really, (it’s obviously satire, and I think it’s well established that all of the participants have the proper open-minded stances on the subject) just that, if that’s not it, I don’t really get the joke? Is it really, as I have heard it expressed, just a mock-up of 50’s comic book tropes? If so, is that really a thing that needs to be lampooned these days?
I get that the joke isn’t on gay people exactly, but simply stated, the joke is, “they’re gay!”, right? “Dicks! Butts! They’re gaaaaaay, get it?” I’m fine with that, I just don’t see why its funny.
(tl;dr, obv.)

It was Mike. I was about to comment on this. Between the “fuckin monkey” and “gay fondue”, he really brought the Top Awful this week. I just can’t figure out why they chose to leave that in there. I thought Bravo was supposed to be NBC’s enlightened gay cousin or something?

I had a visceral reaction immediately when I saw the screen cap of the girl and I couldn’t place why. Until i hit play. My younger sister must have watched this an average of twice a day for a solid year back in the day. My brother and I hated the whipped cream girl with a fiery passion.
I basically had this song in my head for a lengthy portion of my childhood, and I am pretty afraid now that it’s back. So, thanks.

So, I’m a lurker, but I feel like I have to say this: I know that we are all on a similar intellectual page and that our humor needn’t be explained, but until I saw these pictures, I honestly did think that Gabe was appx. 55-60 years old. Like, at first, I knew it was a joke, but then, at some point I got convinced that it wasn’t, and I was all, we should all be so lucky as to have a culturally relevant website when we are 60! Punk’dgum!
