"Mike and Jon, Jon and Mike—I've known them both for years, and, clearly, one of them is very funny. As for the other: truly one of the great hangers-on of our time."—Steve Bodow, head writer, The Daily Show

"Who can really judge what's funny? If humor is a subjective medium, then can there be something that is really and truly hilarious? Me. This book."—Daniel Handler, author, Adverbs, and personal representative of Lemony Snicket

"The good news: I thought Our Kampf was consistently hilarious. The bad news: I’m the guy who wrote Monkeybone."—Sam Hamm, screenwriter, Batman, Batman Returns, and Homecoming

Lots of uninformed people are making fun of Fox Business for this:

Eric Bolling of Follow the Money set the stage on Friday when he hosted a 7-minute segment that argued that The Muppets film – featuring bad-guy oilman Tex Richman -- promotes a left-wing agenda.

“We’re teaching our kids class warfare. Where are we, Communist China?” Bolling said...

“Is liberal Hollywood,” asks Bolling, “using class warfare to kind of brainwash our kids?”

What the fools denigrating Eric Bolling don't understand is that this kind of attack—the forces of darkness insidiously infiltrating our children's minds—has been documented many, many times. Fortunately, just as today, there have also always been stalwart heros who stand up to stop it: 2001 the General Security Directorate provided Saddam a memorandum reporting that the cartoon character "Pokemon" really represented a subterfuge by international Zionism to undermine Iraq's security. Supposedly, "Pokemon" meant "I am Jewish" in Hebrew. They found the fact that the Pokemon character was "widely beloved" by Iraqi youth particularly alarming.

The only difference between Iraq in 2001 and America in 2011 is that our security services have not been wise enough (yet) to hire experts like Bolling to provide this kind of cogent threat analysis.

P.S. Let's not forget the monsters at Fisher-Price and what they did to the Little Mommy Real Loving Baby Cuddle and Coo doll.

Even common, low-ranking Pokémon are heavily-armed Maoists.

I listened to that doll - it really did say "Islam is the Light."

"Where are we, Communist China?"

Indeed, China is currently renowned for how savagely it oppresses wealthy capitalists.

Here's some more brainwashed idiots, this time from the Muppets and not Fox Business:!

Yeah, But what if the doll ain't lying, then what?

Cain was openly quoting Pokemon and promoting a Sim City TAX structure. He seems to be a true believer.
