1. Or don't discuss. See if I care, you humorless finks!
:mad:

And the only thing unfunnier than Carson's Comedy Classics is an episode of Carson's Comedy Classics guest-starring Jonathan Winters. How that annoying hack ever landed a career is an absolute mystery.

2. Carson stopped being funny when he left NYC
and his brand of humor never progressed intellectually beyond pre-pubescent male bathroom humor filled with fart & boob jokes. What a bore.

3. A lot of what I see is disturbingly misogynistic
That's not a stunning realization, I know, but it just never occurred to me how shamelessly grab-ass the whole mindset was. Primitive and regressive. Men are men, women are girls, and get me a goddamned martini already, toots.

Bob Hope was much the same way IMO. I'm sure that it's a generational thing, but the mere fact that the humor seems so sickeningly dated gives me some small glimmer of hope for societal progress.
