Everyone knows that the modern humor era basically started with the first episode of Cheers in 1983. Before that, writers and comic artists made some cool jokes about hippies and Spiro Agnew and such in MAD magazine, but unfortunately MADtv did not yet exist as a vehicle to broadcast this comedy to the masses, so only a relatively esoteric group known as "readers" got to experience this topical whimsy. But what if the purest form of comic expression -- the sitcom -- existed from the dawn of time, providing a laugh track for everything from Shakespeare's bawdy quips to the Teapot Dome hearings! The SA Goons took time away from their beloved Big Bang Theory reruns to imagine the funny sitcoms that TV-equipped past societies might have made!

    Meditations from a Movable Weiner

    Sometimes I dream that I'm sitting in the back of the defunct Weinermobile as it careens driverless down the highway. At first I thought this was symbolic of the powerlessness I feel in life, but then I realized it's actually the Weinermobile's dream of being able to drive again.

    BarkWire.com Dog Reviews: The Barquis de Sade & Cleaver

    Three years ago, when we were burying my uncle, Cleaver and some gross lady dog (Solstice???) showed up at the cemetery and starting going at it really loudly. It ruined everything and we had to have a "re-do" the next day and it cost a fortune. I've hated him ever since for that.
