Bob and David Tell You What to Think

People have talked about the limits of comedy after September 11. Are there jokes that aren't funny anymore?

DC: It's mostly Graydon Carter. I can't tell you how many times reporters have asked me, "What do you think about the death of irony?" Like it's a fucking fact. And it's just because some asshole in his ivory tower decided that's what he felt.

What projects do you have in the works?

DC: I'm writing a lot more, which I really enjoy. I do a monthly column for Vice.

What kind of stuff are you writing?

DC: Limericks. Knock-knock jokes. You know "Ode on a Grecian Urn"? Keats? Parodies of that. "Ode on a Grecian Turd." "Ode on a Grecian Burn Victim."

BO: I directed a feature [Phyro-Gates] and I have a TV development deal. I have two kids, who I'm trying to avoid. That's a lot of work.

Is there a rivalry between you two?

DC: We have a tug-of-war once a year, and then we have a crown that . . .

BO: We actually met after the fifth tug-of-war. I didn't even know he was into comedy. He was just this guy I would meet at a park in L.A. once a year at a certain hour, and we would tug-of-war and walk away. We have a golden cup that we'd give to whoever won, and finally, one year, I gave him the golden cup, and I was like, "Hey man, who are you?" You know those blind tug-of-wars people do?

DC: That's how Armenia was settled.
