Philadelphia Zoo’s female Black-footed Cat Aza gave birth to a litter of kittens on April 8, 2014: the first Black-footed Cats ever to be born at the Philadelphia Zoo! Their names are Drogon, Rhaegal, and Viserion. Drogon and Viserion are male and Rhaegal is female.
The subjectivity of humor is very interesting, isn’t it? A teenager (I presume) wrote this at 8PM on a Saturday night (or later, if elsewhere in the United States), possibly on a dare, convinced they’d stumbled onto comedy gold. The inability to go anonymous did not deter them. Like it or not, I was going to have to read this stupid thing and decide how to properly react. Through a butchered mishmosh of the English language, Tumblr user twirleremma (who, according to her Tumblr, has no consistent discernible interests) has delivered the 2014 equivalent of the crank phone call. It’s obtuse, it’s irreverent, its lack of meaning becomes its meaning.
It reminds me of another message this blog received recently, asking if I was a fan of creepy Simpsons video series. I checked them out and found them phenomenally tedious. It’s a base commentary on the plot elements of one of the few comedy shows that has seeped so perfectly into American consciousness that any attempt at simple parody is placid and dull. But that’s the point. The joke is there are no jokes. It’s just a slight distortion of fact to draw attention to the simplicity of the original concept.
What twirleremma has taught us today is that comedy is an ever-changing medium. New taboos are formed, new expectations are shattered, and what is traditionally considered funny may not be found funny by the next generation. In this new world of media overexposure and infinite content, an incorrect use of letters is the new “Who’s on First”.
To answer your question, seasons 3-9 are really good.
