The Unfunnies: Video Laffs

Once again we see the phenomenon of the terrible joke as cultural record. I'm sure that somewhere a Reader's Digest editor is compiling a page of "Internet Chuckles" or "It Could Only Happen Online" anecdotes, and just as certain that, had mass media existed in the Stone age there would have been a humorous feature called "Fire Follies."

Note how in those early days of television humanity had not yet evolved the complex television-sharing diplomacy that any multi-child, single TV family must possess in order to survive - truly a dark and primitive time.
