Which is funny, because Twisp and Catsby where the first thing I thought of when I read these comics.

See, I like Twisp and Catsby. It isn't as funny as most of the PA stuff, but it's a nice change sometimes. I could see them being an animated short.

Achewood? I just don't see any funny whatsoever.

No matter how much you like the subsequent development of Twisp and Catsby, that cartoon right above your post was WHY it was brought out in the first place and it's only massive fan reaction that made it any kind of feature.  The recent Moon Poem/Short was awesome, but at least it was more understandable (and funny) than any Achewood I've ever seen.

Really, the point I was making was that I was being told that I didn't get Achewood because I'm not bright.  Seeing as I apparently laugh at people getting hit in the nuts by a football.  Which I don't remember ever doing.  Unless it was that time the Sir Bruce Dances video was posted.  He danced like he was kicked in the nuts by a football.

However, me not being bright...   I kinda don't think that's the case....

I did laugh when Hans Moleman got hit in the nuts by a football.

If Achewood is right and Hans Moleman getting hit in the nuts by a football is wrong, then it's time to bring society down and start over.

I never knew it was a competition. What did I miss out on winning by not showing off the fact that I, like nearly everyone else, has watched the Simpsons?

Also, this is called being a smartass. It's different to trolling as it doesn't require a response on your part to be rewarding.

I can see how you all don't get it, since Achewood doesn't contain anyone getting hit in the nuts by a football.

Yes, but a joke about a man getting hit in the groin with a football has a man getting hit in the groin with a football.

PS- I find Achewood mildly funny.  Every once in a while it makes me chortle.

Okay, chortle-worthy.

Ironwood, the Seinfeld thing almost requires having lived in America. It doesn't translate to other countries.  Don't know why that's the case, but all evidence suggests it is.

The longer one below was when Ray discovered that perfect male internal peace and oneness with the universe was obtained via the simplest of concepts: that a simple weight placed at groin level would act as a counterbalance. He then added a handy holder for a cell phone or whatever a man needs to carry. There's a whole story arc for that one, and it's pretty great.

Sauced may be able to elaborate, but that was how I remember it playing out.

Edit: Added link to story arc.

No, Seinfeld does suck. It's not really a cultural thing at all.

Best STOP there.  I mentioned that show because we've had silly 'What's Comedy?' threads before and it usually devolves in just such a way.

I usually get berated for not finding Seinfeld funny, but I still honestly believe that it's more a cultural thing than a style-of-comedy thing.  Guy just comes across as 'Smug Unfunny Jewish New Yorker and his Stupid Ass Friends who need Sectioned.'

And then everyone chimes in 'Oh you must have loved the one with the bet !!!'  and I say 'No, it was a 30 minute wank joke that wasn't funny when I heard it in 1st year at School'.

And then the beatings begin.

I read "wanking" then "beatings" and all I could picture was Ironwood in a bathhouse surrounded by men not wearing towels.

Ironwood looks like his avatar, of course.

If I was able to find a screencap of that scene, I was going to to photoshop his avatar's head over good 'ol private pyles.

Thats pretty much the mental image I got when he posted that.

Nope - as Teleku said, it was just the mental image inspired by putting wanking next to beating. Or maybe I've just watched the wrong movies.

I find it strange that somebody who is championing the merits of Achewood does not like Seinfeld at all, considering both use absurdity as a primary focus of their comedy.  Saying Seinfeld sucks outright just seems like pretension when taken in this context.  It's pretty easy to hate what's popular even if the reasons are not valid: people want to be unique little snowflakes.
