Stupid Is As Stupid Does
I realize more and more the way I craft one of these smacks of many years of watching Jay Leno. I want to build a page of influences from all parts of comedy, but don’t hold your breath. In particular, this one harks back to the Kevin Eubanks era where Jay would prompt “Kev, what do I hate?” Answer: “Stupid criminals”.
Stupid is as stupid does. A burglar decides he is going to rob the home of rapper/actor LL Cool J while he was home sleeping with his family. The rapper, known for being built like an action figure, flips on his protective switch and messes up this dumbass. I own a little bit of rap music, not LL Cool J specifically, but what journalist can’t connect his mega-hit “Knock You Out” to this story? It writes itself.
On a related tangent, awhile back LL Cool J was on “The View” (ahem, I don’t watch “The View”. My spouse IRL likes to unwind with the DVR after her hard day while I web-surf/foot-rub) and I can’t help thinking of the double standard: four middle-aged women groping LL Cool J’s biceps and thighs. Conversely, if Taylor Swift was on the couch with four middle-aged men… see what I mean?
Thanks for reading, please share this comic or let me know of any new ones you are into these days.
