Funny 115 - version 2.0
Worst Tribute Ever
Exile Island - episodes 5-10
Okay, before I write about this moment, let me explain that
I tried my best to have all types of humor on this countdown.
As we get down closer to #1, you are going to see slapstick,
are going to see wordplay, you are going to see highbrow, you are going
to see lowbrow, and I have no doubt whatsoever you will see just as
many witty entries as you are going to see ones that involve
gratuitous fart and poop jokes.
The reason I put that little
disclaimer before this moment is because this entry (#89) might not
appear all that funny the first time you read about it. It
not appear that way because it's not as obvious as some of the other
moments you are going to find on the countdown. It's not like
Coach and Russell on a see-saw, the humor isn't going to jump out at
you right away.
However, what this moment does
have going for it is irony. Unintentional irony.
Glorious unintentional irony.
Which, as anyone who knows me can tell you, is my absolute favorite
kind of comedy in the world.
An example of unintentional irony
Not surprisingly, this unintentional ironic moment stars the
queen of unintentional comedy herself, Courtney Marit.
Okay, are you ready for it? This is a great moment
look at it just from an irony perspective. In fact if you are
type of person who enjoys this kind of humor, this will probably be one
of your favorite moments on the entire countdown.
Shall we begin?
