The Flatulence Beneath My Wings

Shorter Bozo Brentell, Newsblusterers:
Oscars Splash in the Sewer

  • Seth McFarlane should not host the Oscars because he has told penis jokes. Penis jokes are not funny. Fart jokes are funny but only if you say flatulence instead of fart.

‘Shorter’ concept created by Daniel Davies and perfected by Elton Beard. We are aware of all Internet traditions.™

    But the descent from Bob Hope and Johnny Carson to Seth MacFarlane is from the clouds in the sky to the bowels of the sewer.

    Bob Hope and Johnny Carson were HOLY MEN!

    McDonald’s and other large corporations (Dodge, Toyota, even Domino’s Pizza) keep fanning the flatulence beneath MacFarlane’s wings.

    Oh no, not Domino’s! It was all right when they were funding Operation Rescue, but now they’ve become EEEEEVIL!!!!

    Just read the article. Sorry to repeat myself and other people, but SERIOUSLY? A conservative is gonna whine about p00p and penis jokes in Family Guy? And South Park… uh, just ignore that?

    I guess that sounds right. (After all, it’s their ticket into the hipness that is pop culture).

    Someone should introduce Bozell to Dick Cavett. He’d tell him a doozy about Jack Benny. Once Cavett and Benny were in an elevator, where a third person got on. Said person spent the rest of their time on the elevator gushing and fawning over Benny, who accepted it with his usual modesty and grace. After the person got off, and Benny and Cavett were alone, Benny turned and said, “you know, kid, sometimes you just wanna tell ‘em to go fuck themselves.”

    Bob Hope – his standard movie character, serial sexual harrasser.
    Johnny Carson – 170+ wives, all named some version of Jo/Joan/Joanne.

    Seth MacFarlane – Penis jokes.

    What was the question?

    During the rededication ceremony of the Statue of Liberty, on July 4, 1986, Bob Hope joked:

    “I just heard the Statue of Liberty has AIDS. Nobody knows if she got it from the mouth of the Hudson or the Staten Island Fairy.”

    Good taste on every level.

    And coward and bumbler as well.

    I once dated a woman whose sister and brother-in-law owned property on Lakershim Blvd in LA, he had started out in business by buying cheap used cars and restoring them into drivability.

    He told me that Bob Hope was notorious for not paying his bills on time, FWIW.

    white homosexuals are hijacking the fight against bigotry and slavery.

    (Literally at the world-famous corner of Hollywood & Vine. No one in L.A. can figure out why it’s so famous, by the way.)

    Hollywood and Vine, the intersection of Hollywood Boulevard and Vine Street in Hollywood, Los Angeles, California, became famous in the 1920s for its concentration of radio and movie-related businesses. The Hollywood Walk of Fame is centered on the intersection.

    Today, not many production facilities are located in the immediate area. One of the few remaining is the Capitol Records Tower to the north of the intersection.

    The subway station of the same name for the Metro Red Line is located directly below the intersection, but the entrance/exit to the station is located one block east at Hollywood and Argyle Avenue. The intersection is located in ZIP code 90028.

    ……………………………………………………………..

    Beginning in the 1920s, during the Golden Age of Hollywood, the area began to see an influx of money and influence as movie and music businesses began to move in, turning the local farms and orchards into movie backlots. Hollywood and Vine was the second busiest intersection in the area, after Wilshire Boulevard and Western Avenue.[2]

    There was a desert wind blowing that night. It was one of those hot dry Santa Anas that come down through the mountain passes and curl your hair and make your nerves jump and your skin itch. On nights like that every booze party ends in a fight. Meek little wives feel the edge of the carving knife and study their husbands’ necks. Anything can happen. You can even get a full glass of beer at a cocktail lounge.”

    I’m not knocking folks’ taste in humor or entertainment, but if bozell has a problem with immature fascination with bodily functions, he needs to admit he has a problem with American popular culture in general, not with a scapegoated strawman.

    October 8, 2012 at 3:28

    The Jerry Lewis character (usually referred to as “Mr. Director”) was also used here and here. He was in a few more, but not in a central role. He was voiced by Paul Rugg, who wrote the episodes – and voiced Freakazoid (as well as being its head writer).

    I should say I enjoyed a few Jerry Lewis movies, particularly those directed by Frank Tashlin (a great Looney Tunes director who graduated to live-action).

    Anyway, on the subject of the post, I can’t bring myself to read the article, but does it make mention of Family Guy’s frequent racism and rape jokes*? I strongly doubt it. The poop jokes are the only offensive thing there.

    *Not saying there’s no way to make rape jokes funny, but “Ha ha! a rape is happening!” is not one of them. There should be an actual, you know, joke there at the very least.

    That would truly be reaching across the aisle, but it almost never happens that way. I remember having a conversation with my brother in the 90s where we were both criticizing Bill Clinton and suddenly realizing that our disdain was coming from opposite ends of the political spectrum and he had absolutely clue where I was coming from.

    So this guy goes to see his doctor, says “Doc, I’ve got terrible gas. Fortunately no one hears it or smells it when I let it out, but the pains in my stomach are awful”. Doc says, “Fill this prescription and come back in ten days.”

    Ten days later, guy comes back, says “Doc, I don’t know what you gave me, but it didn’t work. I still have terrible gas. Fortunately it still doesn’t make noise, but now it stinks!”. Doc says, “OK, now that your sinuses are clear, we can get to work on the hearing problem.”

    There, see, you can make clean fart jokes.

    If Bozell & all the Puritans & Comstockians before him hadn’t repressed the living fuck out of this nation’s culture & entertainment w/ their holier-than-thou bullshit for hundreds of yrs. we’d probably already have outgrown fart jokes.

    And This Great Nation of Ours™ might be a less tight-assed, screwed-up, violent lynching shithole, instead of a nation that’s exceptional only in sexual repression & the amount of violence it commits against its own citizens & any other people it gets in its cross-hairs.

    Well-played, boconn13, there can be but one response:

    Down these mean streets a man must go who is not himself mean, who is neither tarnished nor afraid. The detective must be a complete man and a common man and yet an unusual man. He must be, to use a rather weathered phrase, a man of honor. He talks as the man of his age talks, that is, with rude wit, a lively sense of the grotesque, a disgust for sham, and a contempt for pettiness.

    I’d be surprised if Bozell found anything funny at all, at least anything I’d recognize as humorous. Of course, he might very well get giggly at the thought of reviving the Holy Office of the Inquisition.

    Much new comedy IS lame, but not because of P00P or P3N1S – it’s because it’s leaning on profanity or shock value to make up for a lack of actual funny … or worst of all, it’s just recycled. Unoriginal yucks do not good boffo make.

    You know what’s REALLY hilarious?

    Barack Obama’s Kobold Warrior Pasta

    Ingredients:
    1 pint kobold warrior
    2 jars berry
    1 stick tofu, buttered
    6 cups zombie white dragon lung, militantly stretched
    1 pound flour
    1 jar basil

    Pre-heat your oven to 48 Farenheit. Pick over the ingredients and discard excess leather. Place the kobold warrior into a medium wok. Mash the berry with the tofu over low heat in a cup. Sprinkle resulting goo over the kobold warrior. Find some Goldschlager and drink it. Saute – very temperately – the zombie white dragon lung, flour, and the basil. Knead everything together. Fry in ray oil for 63 hours. Serves 2.

    Just don’t watch the Oscars, Bozell & co. I don’t. I’m not even sure why not. Oh, I’ve been known to critique things. Family Guy is crass, but I still watch it sometimes. Did the wife and I cancel cable several years back because of money, or because of the shows? –We have the money now, but still no cable; your answer, however, is who gives a shit. The culture war and its many tedious consumerist fronts are the stinky farts in the room.

    Here’s a hint, culture warriors: the key is to make stuff. Your team has to make stuff that stimulates people. That’s the real war, and you’re losing to McFarlane.

    Barack Obama’s Kobold Warrior Pasta

    This reminds me of the new Hackmaster RPG Hacklopedia of Beasts. It’s the best monster book I’ve yet seen for these pen-and-paper games. Every entry, for example, tells you whether the thing is edible, and which body parts are useful for trophies, potions, spell components, etc. (Most humanoids are edible, but the text notes cultural taboos.)

    I really think the people at Kenzer & Co. are knocking it out of the park with their new edition, but of course this is a losing battle in a video-game age.

  79. Substance McGravitas said,

    Kenzer and Co have always made some of the best fantasy RPG sourcebooks, partly because they don’t take themselves too seriously… but primarily because they remain connected to their fans, and haven’t sold out.

    As one who was never happy with anything published by TSR after it was bought by WotC, I’m really happy K&C is still going strong.

    no, brent, you big whinebaby…YOU pick up your pukesicle since you are the one who named macfarlane ‘king’ of hollywood…i know macfarlane is the bee’s knees at the mo (and hawt in a strange way) but ‘king of hollywood?’ doubtful…so i kagoozled it and no, it does not appear that mr. macfarlane is, indeed, the king of hollywood…

    I also don’t think Family Guy is funny. Mostly because I don’t find an incessant string of one-liners and cultural references a good stand-in for writing an actually funny plot line/script. Look at it this way – Seinfeld created cultural references. Family Guy merely picks them up and inserts them so no one will have to actually write their own funny material.

    But Bozell uses ‘pukesicle’ in a tasteful, decent, respectful, civil, classy, refined, culturally advanced, non-gutteristic way so it’s spiritually uplifting and absolutely not crude or disgusting.

    Also, Bozell is outraged that MacFarlane told a penis joke about Obama. In the comments section two of Bozell’s fans tell penis jokes about Obama, but again that’s totally and completely different from MacFarlane telling a penis joke about Obama for reasons that are simply beyond the moral grasp of sewer-dwelling leftish vulgarians like ourselves.

    the big difference is because macfarlane did it in a public venue and over the teevees…as we all know, conservatives can be icky and gross, just not in public…also, too…many of his commentors were all ‘oh yay! aren’t we glad we have these internets to get our news from so we don’t have to watch the scaryevilawful liberals on teevee?!?!’ which really means, yes, i look at internet porn, but only get ‘news’ or information i need from the wingnut blogosphere…

    Done sparingly, it’s a good technique, but I’ve found that Family Guy does it to the point of incoherence. I like non sequiturs as much as anyone, but something entirely composed of non sequiturs loses its appeal to me.

    That was why I initially hated it. It was put together like something that was desperately trying, not to mention lifting jokes from a certain other cartoon show featuring a dumb dad on the same network in nearly the same time slot.

Curing and smoking isn’t the way to appreciate the flavor of the meat. Their prosciutto, otoh, is spectacular.

    In the southeast they’re making noise about Ossabaw hogs and how they’re descended from conquistador hogs and eat acorns so one should be able to make Iberico from them. There’s a guy my age up in tidewater VA from a country ham family that’s making some that I hear is creditable but I haven’t tasted it myself. I’m having so much fun with guanciale and pancetta (latest experiment is coppa) that I’m in no hurry to turn my aging chamber into a Museo del Jamon but it will happen eventually.

    Mmmmmmmm, bacon. I snagged me some Tails and Trotters hazelnut finished, applewood smoked bacon at the marmers farket. Its very, very good but I have to say that I don’t think I’ll buy it often. Curing and smoking isn’t the way to appreciate the flavor of the meat. Their prosciutto, otoh, is spectacular. I still long for Iberico ham (black leg, of course) but the pangs are eased by noshing on T&T prosciutto.

    I was up in your neck-of-the-woods yesterday for a meeting and went to this place for lunch. I had some meat, with a side of meat, more meat, and then meat for dessert. It was pretty damn yummers, but I don’t have much to compare it to. We don’t have a similar spot like it down here in the boonies.

    This is not the year, the year that Streep won for Iron Lady, that was the year.

    There needed to be someone on stage with a large, loud whoopie cushion making fart noises whenever she tried to make her acceptance speech.

    In fact any time Margaret Thatcher tries to make a speech, that same guy needs to be on stage with her. And when she dies, there needs to be a button to push on her tombstone.

    Bozell’s mention of the late, hopefully rotten Bob Hope caught my attention. My late father, who fought in WWII (Pacific Theatre) was generally loath to speak ill of anyone, besides the Japanese soldier who shot him in the chest in 1944. He made an exception for Bob Hope. He would hope, openly, to see ‘that Limey bastard’ in his grave before he died. Alas, it was not to be.

    Johnny Carson’s offenses against decency are already well-documented. Bob Hope’s offenses – well, at the very least, my dear Dad would have liked to see him lynched just for the USO shows.
