    That's the second bloody time my comic style has been ripped off this week. Someone else did one of these comics (though not for public consumption - lots of bad words and stuff).

    But keep 'em coming. I'm taking names, and I'm going to sue the pants off all your heads when the dust settles Smiley

    Bring it on!
    I've watch each & every episode of L.A. Laws, and thus know my way around the system. I'll tie this case up with motions & directs & such as forever!

    Lord, you and your obsession with removing people's pants. It's going to get you in trouble you know.

    Jamie is the only one fit to explain, methinks.

    If Blackberrys are addictive cellphones, Channel9 is the ultimate addictive website.

    Thesedays one can assume that if a reviewer or commentator says it's "funny" then it isn't.

    The definition of "funny" has been degraded and inflated so much. Before it was "comedians are funny", now it's "clowns are funny": which is the point: clowns are not funny, they're either scary or pathetic (and didn't even amuse me when I was 4,5,6).

    Maybe it's just that practically everything consumed by the masses is contrived thesedays, true laboured creativity really can't be engineered, but so long as it remains profitable for Harry Enfield to churn out poor impersonations, Stephen Fry to attempt comedy[1], or Matt Lucas to even exist there's no hope for independent funnay in the mainstream.

    [1]QI is good, but when he tries to cause a laugh, he fails; as demonstrated by his material for the 40th Anniversary of BBC Radio 4.

    Which says more about *you* than clowns, a point you seem to miss.

    I'm working on a frame-by-frame annotation of why that comic is funny, and the back story you need to know for it to be funny. I'm almost done. Just have to spellcheck it. Will post when it's complete.

    ..it's funny because c9park seems to have a habbit of subsuming every other comic sooner or later. it was this ones time.

    *wonder where it gets that attribute from... hmmm.  cough(ms)cough

    You need to see "Shakes the Clown" and you'll find a newfound respect for clowns...plus an extreme hatred for mimes.
