I remember, several years ago, an episode of Red Eye made fun of the Canadian military. It was picked up here by the mainstream news with the line: “No one north of the border was laughing.” Well, I fucking was! I thought it was hilarious! The Canadian military wanted to take some time off! If you can’t make fun of that there’s something wrong with you.
Of course, I’m not sure if that counted as satire, in the strictest sense. It probably did. Regardless, that was material that could be so easily mocked. And yet people took it personally for some reason. It still blows my mind.

3 Modern Satirists Screwed by People Who Didn’t Get the Joke

A brief summary of exactly how women get the shaft in our society. I don’t think there’s anything more I have to add.

A Little Fraud Never Hurt Anypony

A Little Fraud Never Hurt Anypony

Did you know that Barbra Streisand has stage freight? Yeah, Barbra Streisand! One of the (allegedly) greatest performers of our time has a condition that makes it difficult for her to perform without breaking down into a pile of tears.

So why does she even bother? Why does she ever go on stage if she’s afraid of it.

This isn’t like a kid who’s afraid of heights approaching a cliff edge to save a…

A regular day in TUMBLR (original gifs from nitehawkcinema)

The best post!

This is actually something I’ve noticed across the internet. Or more specifically, social media.

It seems to me that the vast majority of people who are really into social media are either delusional egotists, or just lacking in self-esteem. Because all they want are more followers.

Love and Adaptation

Okay, I know we’ve been down this road before.

The thing about love is that it can make you do stupid things. I know, I was a teenager for about six years, what do you think happened?

And these stupid things can run the gamut, from simply not learning to let go, to getting overly-excited and scaring the other off, or not understanding that they’re just not into you until it’s way too late for…

Reverse Hypocondria

I’ve mentioned before that one of my favourite movies is Contagion. A film all about a deadly pandemic and the impact it has on society and the world at large.

People die, others panic, and it all hits the fan. The film covered the event from every conceivable angle, including the perspective of a nutbar conspiracy theorist who creates more panic, and additional riots, over some type of miracle…

Pinkie and the Usurper

Haven’t we been down this road before?

The most important thing to remember about celebrations, like birthdays and anniversaries, and weddings, and other things, is to remember who they’re for. It’s not about the host, it’s about the guest of honour. It’s important to remember that, otherwise you’re just jerking off.

And there’s no better jerker than Pinkie Pie, who plans celebrations based on…

This is weird, and a bit messed. Though if any character would make that kind of comment, it would be Sugar Sprinkles. It’s one of the reasons she’s my favourite character.
But yeah, it does feel a bit messed. But I’ll still defend it’s existence on the same principle that I’ll defend the existence of the same stuff from My Little Pony.
Which is something I’ve elaborated on before. And I still stand by it. There’s nothing wrong with it, as long as it’s done well. This comic is done well. It’s funny, cute, and a bit sweet. Though if we get fan art of the followup, it won’t be cute anymore, it’d just be disgusting.

Comic practice? Enjoy it?
Sorry for not shadowing it, it just too much and i have stuff to do.

I DONT THINK PEOPLE UNDERSTAND HOW HARD ANIMATORS WORK

WHAT BUGS ME MOST IS WHEN ANY ANIMATED MOVIE BECOMES FAMOUS (DISNEY, PIXAR, ANIME’S, AND TV SHOWS) THE WRITER GETS 99.9999% OF THE CREDIT.

DO YOU KNOW HOW HARD IT IS TO DRAW THE SAME CHARACTER SLOWLY MOVING 24 TIMES- ONLY TO MAKE ONE SECOND OF ANIMATION?

HOW MANY SKETCHES THEY MADE?

TIGHT SCHEDULES?

PEOPLE NEED TO APPRECIATE ANIMATORS MORE. 

PREACH! 

I completely agree, animators need more credit. That being said, writers need even more.

To be quite honest, when a new episode of, let’s say, My Little Pony, is released, the quality is not determined by the animation, but the writing.

A great episode has its foundation in its writing. Without a great script, the rest of the episode can’t hold up. You can have the greatest animation team in the world, and even the greatest voice actors. But without a great script, you’re lost.

However, without decent animators, or voice actors, even a great script can result in a bad episode.

But generally, animation done well is not noticed. Animation done badly, is. The same goes with acting. But generally, in Hollywood, writers never get enough credit for their work. Take any film, Pacific Rim for instance. It stars Idris Elba, Charlie Day, Ron Perlman, the ugly guy from Torchwood, and it’s directed by the one, and only, Guillermo del Toro, of Hellboy fame. Everyone knows this! Now! Who wrote it? Who wrote the script?

Without a great script, that film would’ve been terrible, even with the stellar cast and star director. Yet I don’t remember any of the film marketing saying, Written by this guy!

By the way, it was Travis Beacham, who also wrote Clash of the Titans. Guillermo del Toro also worked on it, but that’s beside the point.

I guess my point is, Everyone deserves credit, but writers never get enough. Animators also get the shaft, but that’s only because we generally don’t notice that stuff, and they don’t really get much creative control. They follow design guides, and have to read off of storyboards. It’s hard work, but you don’t hear people complaining about the gaffers getting too little credit.

Let’s just keep things in perspective.

Now this joke has a little history with me, apparently it’s considered offensive to some. O.o? Listen first! Just hear me out as to why I didn’t take this one out of my list of jokes. So this person decides to tell me that the joke is offensive. I follow everyone back on Twitter so direct messages are possible, normally I would be reasonable and understanding about offensive jokes. Now I don’t want to offend anybody, I don’t do rude humor (at least online) and I just want to have a good time with this.
Here is where I had a problem with this particular (censored)… Let me summarize..  “How dare I suggest those heathenistic towards Christ should get a tax break and to stop giving a positive image to those who don’t follow his particular religion. Then I start getting some threats on my Ask after a quick block on Twitter. Then someone decided to post both of my accounts together opening me up to more threats and harassment. Their heart was in the right place but really? Really… Ugh…  So here I present this joke. It has some history with me and everytime I post it, I’d like to think he reads it and it makes him mad.  :-P

Well, that guy was a dick. As an atheist, I’m offended that he was offended.
This always bugs me, because I don’t mind religious people. Fine, do what you want, believe what you want, I’m okay with that. However, if you think that your religion deserves extra special treatment, you’re insane.
It’s the same bullshit that gets pulled every year around Christmas time. Christians crying about the fact that not everyone celebrates Christmas, and claiming the acknowledgement of that is somehow an infringement of their religious rights.
I’m reminded of this absurd little video.
I just don’t understand these nuts. And such a minor pun offending someone, as if they thought it was intelligent political commentary, is just batshit crazy. It’s as if this man has no idea what jokes are.
So, keep up the good work, FunnyCheerilee.
