@dan_johnson I mean, we can have a different conversation about whether his work was important or culturally valuable, but the statement I was making is that he is not, when his work is viewed by a modern audience, necessarily particularly funny.
I mean, some of that is just age. That's how humor works, moreso than other art. There's a reason no one prefaces a poem or song by saying, "Stop me if you've heard this one."
Yeah, i know. I agree, wasnt really qualming you in partick.
