Clean Comedy in a World of Gross-Out Humor and Subtle Sex Jokes [Click for full post]
I’m appalled at the sheer amount of gross-out humor, sex jokes and dirty words being used in comedy these days. Often they’re subtle, buried deep within seemingly “clean” material, but that doesn’t excuse it. Personally, I have resisted the urge to lower myself to making immature, crass sex jokes or anything in that vein, but it’s hard to pass that test. I cull ideas from experience, like every comic, and often my pen is drawn to that low hanging fruit, so it’s a struggle to keep it clean. I’m no prude and I don’t fear the taboo, be it well-worn territory or not, but whole crap bits based on dirty words take no skill to master. Bait the hook or drag a wide net and you’ll catch a little laugh with filth, but I’d rather make it hard on myself and handle my rod like a skilled angler. I see men (and women) in the crowd who want that, too. “Challenge us, sir! Come size up our intellect and entertain us,” their pained expressions say. As a performer I want to rise to the occasion, even if that means bumping heads with those who wish to stay in an intellectual hole or chasm. Continue

8 Weirdly Out Of Character Classic Simpsons Jokes
Skinner’s “Principals Do It 9 Months A Year” Apron (Sweet Seymour Skinner’s Baadasssss Song – Season 5)
When Principal Skinner loses his job, we see him at home wearing a “Principals Do It 9 Months A Year” novelty apron, which seems like an oddly racy choice for a guy who’s so straight-laced, he doesn’t even understand the Mad Magazine slogan “Up with mini-skirts!”, he forbids his army platoon to sing a chant about a lady with a hole in her underpants, and he refuses to even say the word “ass” (though he will think it under telepathic circumstances).
Unless, of course, the reverse-implication here is that Skinner doesn’t even get that there’s innuendo in the apron and thinks it’s a very literal slogan about principals’ jobs. This reading is absurd and hilarious, but might not totally be out of the realm of possibility for the man so free of whimsy, he once delivered the line “The times they are a-becoming quite different,” and who took great pleasure in the sound of his uniformed student body blinking in unison. I guess if Skinner’s never even heard of Jurassic Park, we’ll have to chalk this apron thing up to simple ignorance on the part of Billy and the Cloneasaurus' creator. Keep reading
