Dear ladies and gents,
I came to a rather shocking revelation the other day. Please let me elaborate.
See, I’ve been exercising. And even though it was tough going in the beginning, I’ve been sticking with it for a while now – on a side note I cannot recommend Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred enough, that stuff works like you wouldn’t believe. However a word of caution – if you suffer from dodgy knees like I do, you might want to adapt the circuits otherwise you’ll be hobbling after you are done.
But exercise DVDs can get a tad bit repetitive after you’ve seen them a dozen times. So I switched on the TV to make the time go a bit faster. And since I exercise at roughly the same time every day… well that is how I saw an episode of Two and a Half Men for the first time.
I took pride in the fact I’ve never in my life seen an episode of them Kardashians, or Jersey Shore, or Two and a Half Men. Bah!
First of all – lets put aside the fact all women are portrayed as either crazy or stupid. Or some combination of two. Or the fact men are drunks, emotionally stunted, neurotic or seem to suffer from erectile dysfunction or a combination of two or more. Or the fact that kid is not cute.
Even in my oxygen deprived state it was obvious. It’s just… well… not funny. At all.
The one time I laughed was when Charlie Sheen’s brother didn’t have money so he took part in a clinical trial that made him look like someone attacked him with a spray tan. Lumps of his hair were falling out. And he had a seizure! That was the only time I laughed.
So I came to a conclusion that I’m either a) a bad person who finds stuff like that funny or b) devoid of all humor (and the irony of me making fun of Donald Trump for being a humorless person does not escape me).
Because ladies and gents – that series has just been renewed for 10th (!!!!!) season. And in case you were wondering – you can find the ratings here – 14.9 million viewers!
The only conclusion I can come up with is that I really don’t know what’s funny.
Well either that or people are idiots.
But for the life of me I don’t know which.
