Obama Ain't Funny!
"Obama's election is great for our country, but bad for comedy," I opine in this Reuters article about how a less buffoonish bunch of kooks in the White House makes for far fewer jokes. This is a humor-world tragedy, and it's becoming clear that we all should have thought about the dire (and dour) consequences before casting our votes for serious people with good intentions. I say bring back the clowns! They'll destroy our great nation, but at least we'll go down laughing!
