This God Damned Funny Business is No Laughing Matter

It seems to me that one of the best indicators of this nation’s moral decay is the reprehensible nonsense that passes for humor nowadays.

When I was a boy, people didn’t have time for humor. We were too busy wiping the smirk off Hitler’s face to concern ourselves with mindless tittering and idle guffaws. For us, laughter was like shoe laces or smallpox vaccines – nice to have but not a luxury most of us could afford.

And when we did indulge ourselves in some mindless comic diversion we sought out decent, civilized humorists – men who told knock-knock jokes and lamented their wives outrageous spending and disappointing attempts to make pot roast. Men who peppered us with puns and poked fun at the foibles of nagging mothers-in-laws and the dangers of shady foreigners.

Our comics didn’t denigrate our country’s values – they embodied them.

These days though it seems that every flinty reprobate with a dirty mind and a misanthropic axe to grind is parading across the screen of my Magnavox clutching at his genitals, telling off-color jokes and carrying on a like raving fool on a day pass from a home for the criminally profane.

You never heard Bud Abbot calling President Roosevelt a “douchebag” or poking fun at the Lindbergh baby. You never heard Jack Benny talk about smoking amphetamines or “bumpin’ uglies” with the Andrews Sisters. Those men had class – and they understood that if they crossed a line we’d beat them senseless with a sack of righteous indignation faster than you could say Fatty Arbuckle or The First Amendment.

There are no “take my wife” jokes or innocent jabs at those rascally drink-loving Irish anymore. Every degenerate quipster these days has to crack wise about social inequality, political scandal, the female anatomy and every other issue my generation spent years suppressing, denying and working tirelessly to ignore. They’re subversive, they’re crude and they’re undoing our social fabric one HBO special at a time.

If you ask me we’re on a path to damnation – and if we don’t change our comedic stripes soon and return to the simple pleasures of double entendres, amusing pratfalls and adeptly censored one-liners it won’t be long before we get our just desserts and are spending an eternity sitting through an never-ending “open mic night” in the Lenny Bruce Lounge of the Holiday Inn in Hell.

    “home for the criminally profane”


    I know a lot of people who should be locked up there.

    • 10:22 pm

      Thank you yellowcat,

      I think 90 per cent of the damned population belongs there. An old man can’t turn on his television set without some kind of nasty assault against common decency slapping him in the face. 1000 “comedy” channels on the airwaves and not one decent “knock knock” network to be found anywhere.

      All the best,

        You got that right Don. The boob tube has truly become the portal of the perverse. When I was a kid, I would stay up late and try to catch an episode of Benny Hill, because of the slight chance of seeing a brief glimpse of a woman’s knocker! kids now have instant access to the most vile content known to man.
        I pretty much stick to the Golf and Military/history channels. I can’t even find the old Warner bros. classic cartoons becuase the have been deemed not PC!

        It’s called a remote and when you don’t like what’s on you just change the damn channel, arsewhipe. For a guy that moans about youth being so lazy, you think this concept would be easy to grasp. Goodness, you got a lot of pansies that suck up to you on here.

        This old man is EXTREMELY ACCURATE. Our youth & young adults have their heads up their ass & if we don’t change as a society, God help us if WWIII ever breaks out! We are a society of liberals & men who are about as tough as a 3 year old girl. What happened to the real men who fought in WWII & Korea? We as a nation are looked upon as a bunch of weak young men who only care about themselves and not their country 1st like how it should be. GOD HELP US…

    Ah, Don, then you will love my dad’s sense of humor. Here is his favorite joke:
    “If a pickle and a half costs a cent and a half, how much will two pickles cost?”
    Me, sort of dumbfounded: “Uh, two cents?”
    My dad, slapping his knee and laughing, “Yes!”

    Feel free to use this joke liberally when you want to impress people.

    Thanks very much Life in the Boomer Lane,

    I’ll be sure to save that gem for open mic night at the seniors center. A good pickle joke is always sure to bring down the house.

    Always a pleasure to hear from you.

    I’m so much in agreement with you that I can’t laugh. There’s nothing funny about much of what passes for “humor” these days. Which may be why I watch so little “comedy.”

    Dear Don,
    another excellent post, bang on the point.
    What I don’t understand is this curious emphasis on their so called Political Correctness.

    Would Bob Hope have made such great films if he’s been Politically Correct, I think not.

    Would the great Jack Benny have been able to mug in his hilarious (and slightly camp) way through another violin piece? I don’t think so.

    I am waiting for the Vegetable Rights people to impliment a ban on Banana Skin prat falls as unfair to the slippery yellow fruit.

    Sometimes I despair. What ever happened to the traditional raucus belly-laugh?

    Laurel and Hardy’s decomposing bodies must be spinning in their graves.

    Ah well, there’s always fun in a pun.

    Yours Aye,

    • 11:01 pm

      Thank you TwistedScottishBastard,

      Well said, as always. And you raise an interesting point. It’s an odd combination – political correctness combined with the type of profanity that would peel paint from the wall. I guess being as coarse as 50 grit sandpaper is an equally opportunity offence and therefore, considered fair play.

      Long live the pun.

      All the best, TSB. Hope you had a restful and enjoyable holiday season.

    I have been back through your archives over the past week and have (nearly) read them all. You have provided me with a laugh and an education, one post at a time. Nice to see you in 2012 too Mr Mills.

    Mr. Mills

    On the whole, I find myself in such vigorous agreement with your sentiments that porridge just shot out of my nose. That said, I am concerned that your post overlooks the proliferation of comedic pleasure to be had from an early morning visit to your local skate-park: can of oil in one hand and opera glasses tucked discreetly in one’s top pocket, preparatory to a day of educational merriment.

    While youthful stupidity still exists, there will always be a need for absorbent pads.

    Your avid follower,

      Many thanks Alex (aka Squid (Damp)),

      I fully agree that there are still some laughs to be found in the world – from observing young people attempting mental math to loosening the bolts on the wheels of their skateboards to tripping indolent nogoodnicks with my cane.

      Sadly, however, very few of those precious moments seem to make their way onto my Magnavox. If it weren’t for my occasional forays to the food court at mall, I’d get no chuckles at all.

      All the best, Alex, and thanks for visiting.

      The Three Stooges you say? You know they are classic comedy because a child,dad, and grand-dad can sit and enjoy them together!

    My family recently discussed this same subject. I think the potty foul humor is the easiest and most boring. I went to a comedy club night where a black man made racial slurs about himself all night. I was so uncomfortable. Give me a good one-liner or pun any day!
    BTW Duck Soup played on TCM before Christmas and it was hilarious!!

      Thank you susielindau,

      My wife, Aggie, always hated my penchant for puns but I still maintain it’s a fine form of humor.

    I blame George Carlin. In 1972, he came up with the “Seven Words you can’t say on Televlsion”.

    From then on, it all went down hill.

    • 12:22 am

      Thank you Friar,

      Could well be he’s the man responsible. Regardless, I suspect that these days the use of all 7 of those words is considered compulsory if you expect to attract a damned audience.

      Technically, he didn’t come up with them. He just put them in a routine.

      Comedians like Bruce, Prior and Carlin were as profane as anyone today. The difference is that they were more than just “blue”, they were very funny. Today, most comedians copy their profanity but completely forget to copy the humour part. They just pose for the camera, spout curses and catch phrases and expect people will laugh at their lame bullshit. (See: Dane Cook)

    Hi Don,

    I think comedian Bill Cosby got it right . He’s also tired of the state of the world in general.

    Yes, I’m damn tired. But I’m also glad to be 76.. Because, mostly, I’m not going to have to see the world these people are making. I’m just sorry for my granddaughter and her children. Thank God I’m on the way out and not on the way in.

    He is so right and I for one can’t see it getting any better.

    • 12:34 am

      Many thanks Fairy Face,

      Unfortunately Mr. Cosby and I have been at odds ever since he started promoting puddin’ pops. I’m a tolerant man but a marriage of pudding and popsicle is more than I can abide.

    Great post. If you search really really hard, there is still honest humor to be found. Ive enjoyed recent books by Ellen DeGeneres and Tina Few. The likes of Chelsea Lately, howeer, I do not find funny at all.

      Thank you DiatribeAndOvations,

      Unfortunately, the large print section at my local library doesn’t carry much beyond a handful of romance novels, a few dusty murder mysteries and small sample of reference texts on mole identification and the importance of prostrate health. I’d have a word with the librarian but to be honest, she scares the hell out of me.

    I blame Sesame Street. They’re the ones that taught kids it was ok to steal cookies, live in sin with other puppets, and that “one of these things are not like the other” (so obviously we should mercilessly mock it.) Half of them didn’t even wear clothes. Hippies.

    • 1:29 am

      Thank you Amy,

      I wholeheartedly agree. Sesame Street was always been trouble but once Mr. Hooper died it became positively sinister. Gigantic yellow birds hallucinating and seeing brown elephants? Math obsessed vampires? Bert?

      Hippies indeed. And likely anarchists too.

  17. 2:02 pm

    Dear Don,

    Additionally, I object to a so-called “comedy channel” that no longer features:

    a) comedians (because Carlos Mencia and his ilk are not comedians so much as a terrible government experiment to make the US lose our collective minds) OR…

    b) even remotely humorous films and shows (actually, Tosh.O isn’t terrible, but it relies on an active interest in the shenanigans of the interwebs, and I know you’re not into that kind of thing).

    It’s enough to make people demand the return of Lawrence Welk, even in cyborg form.


    • 1:39 am

      Thank you Sorcia,

      I can’t say I’ve ever heard of Carlos Mencia or his damned ilk but I’ll take you at your word. He sounds more like a Bond villian than a comedian anyway.

      I have to say that while I’m not sure it would be chock full of laughs, I certainly support the notion of The Lawrence CyberWelk Show. In addition to his playing popular music and amusing us with his famously amusing welk-isms, Cyberlawrence (or welkborg if you prefer) could close each show by ripping a popular modern comedian limb from limb with his hydraulic arms.

      I’d watch.

      All the best,

    The problem is that there are too few jokes that are funny but that are not profane that haven’t been told already. We’re running out of profane jokes (which can be shown with fewer comedies on network TV. There are more nostalgia channels popping up on TV all the time because today’s comedy isn’t very good. I blame the Cinemafia.

    • 12:20 am

      It seems to me that as a culture we really don’t require more than a half dozen good jokes anyway. Anything more than that is just wasteful, decadent and likely an exercise in poor taste.

    What comedy needs is fewer outlets where the crap can play. There would be a much higher level if there was any competition for viewers.

    But, Don, Fatty Arbuckle? I don’t think he represented the best in comedy or humans.

    • 12:22 am

      Thank you Elyse,

      I fully agree. Too many damned companies are simply trying to fill airtime. In my day if you wanted to be on television you had to have some measure of talent. These days, all you need is a willingness to humiliate yourself and a thick skull.

    This is a little off-topic, but do you know the manufacturer and pattern name of the upholstery material on your wingback chair, which is so prominently (and delightfully!) featured in your photo and header? I’m considering a redo of my rumpus room and that fabric looks like it would wear like iron.

    • 12:27 am

      Thank you Peg,

      I appreciate your interest in the chair. I always had you pegged as a woman of refined taste. Unfortunately I don’t remember the manufacturer or the pattern name (it might be “rusty brogue” but I’m not sure).

      Not to worry, though, I should still have the receipt tucked away somewhere in the basement. The chair came with a lifetime guarantee and I fully intend to hold the retailer to their word regardless of whether 50 plus years has passed.

      As soon as I can locate a flashlight I’ll head to the crawl space to investigate further. If I’m able to get some additional information, I’ll be sure to let you know.

    I completely agree. Maybe if we stopped vaccinating everyone all the time for free, they’d start realizing the true meaning of America and stop creating such crude travesties of humor. I just returned today from a visit to the south, and they’re doing it right. Country music and pride, and none of that unfortunate comedy nonsense.

  25. 4:02 pm

    It seems disrespect is the new joke today. The T.V channels (which I have turned away from and picked up a book instead) seem to be littered with this crap. I think they may well call it “Freedom of expression” whatever that means without civility and responsibility – god knows.

    I pride myself in keeping my posts PG-13. My last post, a parody about snowboarding (an innocuous topic, I’d say) got tons of slack from offended snowboarders who lashed out at me because I poked fun at their sport.

    I sincerely doubt you are forced to watched the comedy of my generation. Fortunately for people like you, a lot of the old classics are being restored and brought to DVD and now even Blu Ray format for your reminiscing pleasure. About all I could say to the comedians of today is that originality is quickly running on short supply. Other than that, some of them are downright hilarious. Of course, I can appreciate comedy in ranges from G-rated Christian comedy to raunchy R-rated material. If there is something I do not agree with I am capable of the wonderful act of changing the channel. Rather than complain about what comedy has become, remember it the way appreciated it and I am sure you’ll be just fine. That or just get rid of your television and stop going to the movies.

    Sir, is this the kind of high-concept comedy you had in mind? I’m betting you may have even seen these sketches at some point.

    Here’s some sketch humour I chose less for its humour and more for its meaning. It’s loaded full of punny Shakespeare references audiences would never get today. You would be laughed out of a job for just suggesting this kind of thing be tried on TV these days, even on a smaller scale. It requires an audience that has a level of knowledge -and appreciation for – literary works.

    And here’s some classic Brit wordplay thou questeth for.

    Hopefully, you enjoyed the links (and they didn’t embed. I hate it when that happens.)

    Many thanks Sedate Me,

    Wonderful links. I hadn’t seen that particular Wayne and Schuster clip but was familiar with both of the sketches from the Two Ronnies. It used to be one of my favorite shows in fact. Very nice to have an opportunity to reacquaint myself with their work – it’s been a very long time since they’ve crossed the screen of my Magnavox.

    Hope you’re well lad. I’m taking a break from the blog for a while. Hope we have an opportunity to chat again sometime soon.

      You’re very welcome, sir.

      As a little kid, I thoroughly enjoyed both shows. It’s sad that neither would have a snowball’s chance in hell of getting on the air today, even in the 500 channel universe. I also miss the old, wood cabinet, TV too. Today’s TV are as warm and friendly as a prostate exam and last about as long as one. Like so much these days, empty and cold.

      If I had a heart, I’d say that I’m heartbroken to hear you’re taking a break from your blog public service to humanity. I hope your spleen (or any other troublesome part) isn’t acting up again and can’t wait to see you back up on your feet venting it again.

    Hilarious post! My favorite comedians are/were Eddie Murphy and George Carlin. I also enjoy alot of Ron Gallager’s humor, and that of the late Jerry Clower. But I don’t enjoy listening to any of the popular comedians these days–they’re so restricted by political correctness they’re downright boring. And those who don’t care about political correctness just spout vulgarities without any cleverness. It’s cleverness, to me, that makes for good laughs. It can be vulgar as hell or clean as heaven, but it’s only funny if it’s clever.

    Two of my favorite “clean” jokes (because they’re clever):

    What’s the difference between ignorance and apathy?
    I don’t know, and I don’t care.

    “God is dead.” –Nietzsche

    Mr. Mills,
    This blog is quite honestly the most entertaining one I have encountered. I have been laughing so loudly that you would probably come knock on my door and tell me to shut my trap if you lived next door to me. I shall endeavor to respect my neighboring elders and laugh more silently, but your gift of wit might just make that impossible. Thank you, sir, for your articulate, hysterical, and often utterly-correct blog about those of us from the younger generations. This 23 year old greatly appreciated it.

    I’m not sure if you’ve ever been to one of my very funny shows but I definitely agree with you. I am fond of a knock-knock joke and I also find it very amusing to make fun of hirsute people, as was the way in the 1950s. I also know a good joke about minced steak but I am afraid it’s in French. By the way, I like your spectacles.
    You are an inspiration to us all. Thomas G. Putty (my manager and a very good friend) agrees.

    When we stop making jokes at other’s expense, maybe we will find our true sense of humour again!

  75. 6:55 pm

    Hi Don
    Over in the UK they’ve given up having laugh tracks on sitcoms. I used to think they didn’t have a studio audience because the humour was too subtle. Now I know they’ve got a studio audience but they’re just not laughing.
    Yeah, bring back comedy that’s funny.

    Maybe some of the younger comics should study the late great Phyllis DIller. One of her cackles was five times filthier than a four letter word and ten times funnier.

  78. 1:22 pm

    Agreed. I’m happen to be a young person myself, but I try very hard to be decent. As for the disgusting sense of humor my peers have, well, I just prefer not to laugh.

  79. 3:09 am

    Alright old timer…you made your point. In a very funny way I might add. It is true that most younger people have a perverse sense of humor but what tickles the funny bone is only symptomatic of a much larger issue. Our education system is failing and most people no longer are willing to work hard. Success is something to be frowned upon and so we live dreary lives, accomplishing nothing and with our minds turning to mush – laugh at crotch grabbing morons.

    Normally I have no problem with most old people. My only problem is that they think we should kiss their ass when we have no idea who they even are. When I try to be nice to a senior it usually goes one of two ways. First, they are either just as nice to me as I am to them, no problem there. Or second, they are rude as hell for no reason considering I told them to have a nice day. If they do not want to have a nice day that is not my problem, it is theirs. What happened to the saying treat people the way you want to be treated? That and the fact that old people have just a low of an IQ as some of the stupid teenagers that you talk about. I work at a movie theater and there are ramps on the sides of the concession stands. Don’t walk up and complain that there are no ramps when there is a sign saying handicap accessible starring you right in the face. I understand that you may not be able to make it up the steps normally but at least open your eyes. Again, I do not hate old people, just the old people that seem like I did something wrong to them when I did the complete opposite. Oh yeah and I also think that old people should have to retake their driver’s test because let’s face it, some of you can’t drive. Then again that’s almost all of the people on the road these days…

I do agree with you that some teenagers nowadays are awful but I’d like to say that a few of us are decent:)

    Being a grumpy old man in training and self proclaimed comedy writer I wanted to chime in on this excellent piece and some of the commentary.

    People have mentioned Carlin and Bruce. We forget that prior to his death Carlin was really the quintessentail grumpy old man comic. Carlin evolved over a long career as a comic. The (in)famous “Seven Words” routine, he is not using explatives for the sake of shock value. He is disecting the language in and intelligent and original manner.. A judge ruled on this, smiling and chuckling as he heard some of Carlins work. One of my fave stories about Carlin was when two of the nuns who had taught Carlin in Morningside Heights stopped his mother to discuss George’s fame and career. Mrs Carlin was embarrassed and said ” I know sister…the language”. The savvy nun piped up and said.”Oh no, George is using it contextually and observationally”

    Bruce was a breakthrough comedian who’s work has not stood the test of time.

    Cosby is a storyteller, which is a special talent in and of it self. There are few comparrisons to Bill.

    Then we have the “Chitlin Circuit” with extremely “blue” comics like Lawanda Page and Redd Foxx
    The subject matter is crude, but the language is clean….and it’s funny and clever.

    Great piece. I am looking forward to reading more.

    I suppose with all of the comic garbage going around, we can at least know when we come upon some works of genius. Too bad the pile keeps building on up though to hide that true spark. Indeed, the television and the Interwebz have become perverse portals. Some things can’t be unseen.

    I’d have to agree

    The best form of comedy is intelligent humour (in my opinion). Well thought out comedians who tell well thought out jokes. Take Tim Minchin for example, he actually uses intelligence, with an occasional mix of an adult reference, and usually tells it how it is. That’s why his comedy is unique, and why people enjoy it
    Disgusting, unintelligent humour is what makes comedy a bad thing

  112. 3:25 pm

    Well first of all, to each his own. I’m sure there were guys your age now when you were in your late teens or early 20’s who thought you were out of control too. If not then good for you. You must have been a swell kid. Isn’t that kind of how most of us humans function? We do stupid shit until it’s time to grow up and go out into the real world? However, I’m 26 years old and still feel uncomfortable saying the word “damn” in front of my mom because I was raised in a traditional southern family where you always say ma’am and sir (which I still say today) and you can bet that I’m going to raise my kids the same way. Who cares that young people act like retards? I think it’s hilarious. The fact is there is a shitty cycle of how Hollywood portrays the young kids of today’s world and then kids everywhere emulate it to be “cool”. It doesn’t make it morally wrong it makes it funny as hell and sometimes sad. Because 90% of those idiots are high school drop outs who can’t find their nuts with a flashlight. It’s like watching a train with the track out ahead and the kids will either grow up and slow down or crash and burn in a horrific blaze of glory. Hell I guarantee you I probably have the raunchiest and worst blog on this whole website even though I just joined today. I get drunk 5 days a week and act like a total asshole 7 days a week. But I still have a 4.0 GPA and this time next year will be a second lieutenant in the United States Marine Corps on my way to becoming an F-35B pilot. I guess my point is that if your blog is for entertaining purposes like mine is (even though my stories and soon to be many stories are all 100% true) then you succeeded because I thought it was great. I look forward to reading a bunch more of your stuff and butting heads with you. But right now I have a ton of Arabic homework as I am across the pond in Morocco studying Arabic. Later pops….

    Thanks for your perspective!

    From what I have heard from parents who grew up in the generation before me I would say that they were a little more crazy. Stories I have heard are some ludicrous ones. The only thing different between the older generation and ours is that we are monitored a lot more. Everything is caught on tape now. Back then cameras were the only thing. Now a day we have many social media sites and ways of communicating. It is a completely different time period than it was for the older generation. I am not saying my generation is better, I’m just saying that it was easier to get away with stuff back then.

  135. 10:06 pm

    That posts a real ripper Don. I got a link from my dear friend Julia at ‘Defeat Despair’ and I must say, while I’m a young 52, I can sure relate. What I find too, is some people talk so loud in public. It’s almost as if what they’re saying has importance to the whole room, or so THEY think. Usually, it’s not funny at all.

    Normally I carry around a barrel of fruit to throw at old people when I see them (Reference: However old person, I find you humorous and if I see you walking around being old and decrepit I won’t throw fruit at you, nor will I swerve at you when I see you driving 25 mph on the freeway. Keep being entertaining…. for a while anyway.

    Well, the “simple pleasures of double entendres, amusing pratfalls and adeptly censored one-liners” aren’t taken to be that funny anymore. Things have changed, the way people live changed, too. Back in the old days, things just weren’t kept in record so they couldn’t catch every crazy move of the young people. Did you know that in every generation there had been ramblings going on about “Oh, the young people these days…” Just rise above it.

    The humor of the past and the present is constantly evolving into new areas. The new humor might not be idea considering where we came from in the past, but people want to explore that which has been suppressed. This includes sexuality, racism, and other various topics undisguised in the past. Now that I understand your opinion of young people maybe you should understand my perspective of old people. Check out my blog at when you get a chance.

    Excellent blog. I’ve been aimlessly searching for a blog with decent humor and quality grammar. I’ve found it.

    I like it. I hope to be old, bitter and hilarious someday, just like you 🙂

    I totally want to share this post with my grandfather. Except he doesn’t know how to work the Internet. Oh, and he’s dead. He keeled over when his other grandchild (my douchey brother who wears fur-lined puffy jackets from Aéropostale) forced him to watch a Carrot Top special. This is why the Greatest Generation is perishing…

    Don, you are an amazing, funny voice for all of us 🙂 Thanks for saying it like it is. There are very few people who can put their perspective into a complete comedy routine, but you’ve done it 🙂
    I have added you to my “Who’s Funny” listing at I also warned everyone that they might pee themselves from laughing so hard 🙂

    Thanks so much for this blog. Very very funny – its important to always keep a sense of humour!

    I need advice. Several old people wondered into my yard- how should I approach them? Is it ever OK to use a large rabbit trap? Should I maybe yell, “SEX!” and just hope they pass out? I AM IN A PICKLE

  172. 12:30 pm

    hahaha It’s funny!

    Interesting read, espeacially wiping hitlers smirk of his face. Well it was certainly wiped through blood shed and sacriface. Yes it was a generation of hardship. Today we face a certain damnation.I personally think the now generation is a lost one, No morals, they do not want to work and critisize every thing. Thanks for the read, it was great.

    I’m new here, Don. I’m old.. but not as old as you… so I guess that makes me young-er. I hope you’re not one of those Trumpian conservatives lurking about. I do have a generational question for you though.
    My Greatest Generation father and those of his kind back in the day, would always grab a magazine when he headed into the john… and actually spent time in there. I remember as a kid, visiting relatives, that many bathrooms had the proverbial magazine rack, if not a stack of newspapers or mags on the floor. What’s with your generation needing to spend so much time in the can that they needed to spend time reading?
