And some people actually think women have no talent for comedy! Worse even, that they usually end up in unintended self-persiflage for trying what is without their reach. Why, oh why would I prefer her to attend a community college and earn some credits in strip-tease and pole-dancing before she turns to rely on even the remotest hint to anything of her physique which is not strictly of medical concern? And yes, there are courses for voice development where she could practice the difference between counter-caricature and and support of the message through the use of the voice. And then how about the face? Isn’t there something called expression which is said to play a not unsignificant role in all sorts of face-to-face communication? But insofar as someone has informed her about the existence of acting schools she must have believed it would spoil her gift to charm exactly by virtue of the offensive lack of charm. The discrimination between appalling and morbidly attractive is not that easy, though, if you have decided you are funny, and that’s it.
Well, in reality it’s us non-women who don’t get. Especially us non hetero-phobic ones. We feel it’s awkward and pitiable to da max, not to speak of the improbability that she means it as a persiflage of American Jewish Princess’ scurrilous misperception of her own lack of sex appeal, charms and wit as an overendowment with same qualities calling for flinging herself in the public’s face in the most exhibitionist crudeness and crude exhibition she can imagine, in order to educate our tastes towards refined meta-subtleties of comic innuendo.
After much consideration I have arrived at the conclusion, she is the product of affirmative action and Title IX applied to comedy careers, including her show reviews and her Emmy nomination.
But there is no need to come up with original displeasure from one’s first exposure to this alleged humor. Enough has been said, and then cited in Wikipedia:
Matt Roush of TV Guide called the show “juvenile” saying that “Silverman reminds us how quickly the novelty can wear off while watching a pixie with a potty mouth.” Roush went on to say that, “If there’s such a thing as feminist frat-boy humor, Silverman has mastered it. Big deal.”
Only that in the video above, the punch line comes first.
And, poor Obama! Though he has earned any possible and the gravest of scorn, that here’s still indecent violation of the sensible senses.
