Amazing after credits bit (forget what we refer to it as). Thank god this isn't true to life otherwise Desert Bus auctions would take years to arrive.

Commador Hustle Postage time system refered to as "LRR Time" not dissimilar from Fiji time.

Here's another idea. The commodore Hustle of the commodore Hustle universe is the same exact one as the commodore Hustle in our universe. The advantage of this is that if the cH LRR watches cH, we can end up with something like this. :D

So cH universe cH characters are basically Terrance and Phillip.

Lol, possibly. Actually, I'd like to see how deep this rabbit hole goes. I'd love to see a cH video where the characters are making a cH video.

Presumably the cH version of LRR has its own version of cH, which in turn has its own version of cH... and it goes on and on, with each iteration of the crew being dumber than the version that writes them. Insert Inception joke here.

Also, is Kate pretty much a main crew member by now?

We need to break out some special notation for this...

1cH being the awful version of LRR (0cH)
2cH being the awful version of 1cH (Communicate mainly in farts and bad puns)
3cH being the awful version of 2cH (Badly made sock puppets, that communicate mainly in farts and bad puns)
4cH being the awful version of 3cH (Low frame rate animated versions of sock puppets, that communicate mainly in farts and bad puns)

There must be a point where that level of cH (xcH if you will)is so awful that when they try to make a cH version of themselves it just ends up being LRR again.

A circle of cH.

This is World on a Wire you can see their "simulated world" on a computer screen briefly, and how the people in the simulation talk in weird sounds that aren't real words. That's what I imagined the 3 or 4 cH would be like, only with more ball kicking.

2cH they would still be capable of speaking English, but would all have catchphrases that they say as often as possible and then wink at the camera.

Level 2 Feed Dump would consist of Graham reading something from the news and the others taking turns laughing and saying, "that's stupid."

Actually, I'd like to think that the cH inside cH actually has them as brilliant comedy writers. Though they'd never show a sketch actually being made (given that would imply that the actual cH characters could write really good sketch comedy, which I suppose is a possibility). I just see that as something more along the lines of what the cH characters would do; casting themselves as geniuses.

Or it's possible that the cH inside cH is almost exactly like real life LRR. Which means level 3 cH is like level 1.

Personally, I think the nested cH is stereotypically impenetrable British comedy, and the level of cH beyond that is regular LRR.

Eventually the cH level reaches a point where the people from that universe would be making videos about how the real LRR actually go about their lives but in that universe the videos are considered to be war crimes.

I'm going to opt to refuse this explanation outright, and instead go along with the Nested LRRverse theory of cH's. The crude comedy stylings of the cH LRR crew leads me to agree with the idea that each cH must indeed become slightly more awful than the last.

I'm willing to accept that at some point, it might cycle back around to our version of LRR. And maybe there is a LRRverse where Graham dates hot mirror girls and Creed still sucks, or a LRRverse where Canadaman comes from!

Well, the cH nesting will eventually degrade the original cH funcion of 'the worse version', at which point cH's would become abstract and unreliably predictable.

However, there will be one [n]cH populated entirely by clones of Paul.

Alright, I'm going to rant for a moment. Bare with me.

The main reason I don't think the 'each cH is worse as you get deeper' will work is because of a variety of reasons. The first is the reasoning behind the cH versions being low-brow. If I remember, they mentioned in a commentary it was because in similar shows it works better having the off-screen sketches be worse then the one your watching. Otherwise people would just want to see the sketch the people inside the show are making since it's supposed to be so good. This is a fairly good point and makes sense. I'd much rather watch cH then watch something they made IN cH for the most part.

But, on the other hand, I don't think the cH characters would think to do that. I might be mistaken; but some of the characters seem more the types to try to make themselves look/seem awesome. And as such, to make the internet peoples think they're awesome, I can see the cH making their cH characters brilliant (at least by their world's standards) writers and sketch comedians. Which means that when you get to level 2, you have what are likely brilliant writers. They would then notice the same pitfall and make their characters lowest-common-denominator writers. Which means level 3 wouldn't notice the pitfalls that LRRP and LRR2 noticed, and go the same route as LRR1. Hence creating a cycle.

There are a couple things to think about though. Like if the worlds' standards get lower with each additional layer. The further down brilliant ones might be great at what they do due to being in a world with stiff competition. Of course, that might lead them to make their cH have fairly good but not perfect versions of themselves who live in a world with higher standards, creating an even more in-depth cycle of intelligence and setting.

Also, I think the forums have been mentioned before. I have to wonder what cH versions of the users here would be like. Or the cH version of Desert Bus. So many questions...

This has been my mind overthinking everything to an abrurd degree. Please disregard everything writter above.

LRR's forum in cH^3 would be entirely filled with spambots.

cH^3 would be playing an actually fun game, not Desert Bus, since they don't "get" it and they just ignore the chat and challenges.

So what I seeing here, Kapol, is a damping sine wave. Probably not what you were describing, but that's what I'm seeing.

It depends on which idea you go with. If the standard consistantly gets lower and lower, then I'd say yes. But if the standards rise and fall consistantly so there's no change, it's more just a normal sine wave.

Yea. I think most 'off' levels would play fun games instead. But the idea of the forum being all spam-bots is silly. :P

I think Kapol has the right idea, that cH^2 would probably be portrayed as being super-amazing clever people... as that's what the cH characters would probably want to portray themselves as. However, they would likely just be described as super-amazing clever people... but be written poorly, because that's all the cH^1 people (who would be writing cH^2) seem to be capable of. So cH^2 the show is probably full of a bunch of allegedly-smart people doing actually-dumb things. And fart jokes. Actually, mostly fart jokes.

And so, nesting further... while cH^2 are allegedly clever, they wouldn't be actually shown as being clever, and so they probably wouldn't realise that they'd be better off to make cH^3 intentionally comedically dumber than themselves, so I don't think it's cycle back and forth as Kapol suggested.

Then, at cH^4, I give you a hamburger.

Interesting idea, but it's difficult to write a writer that's a better writer than you. If the cH characters wrote 2cH as wish-fulfillment, it would be easier to just write a 2cH audience that constantly says how brilliant the 2cH crew is.

Added: I see phlip had the same idea.

Here's the reason I think they'd actually be good writers. I doubt that cH^1 would actually show any of the sketches. Maybe small bits, somewhat like the actual cH, but nothing enough to form real opinions. This is because, while they're more 'fart joke humor,' I don't get the feeling that cH characters are actually stupid. They're just... odd. I think that they'd try to have the characters in their cH sketches act as smart and cleaver as they like to think they are, throwing in some fart jokes in how the characters behave to appeal to their fans.

Basically, I see cH2 as cH's wish fulfillment fantasy that they actually try hard on. This is because it's wish fulfillment for them. And as such they make others think they're witty and amazing from those episodes. And, because in that universe they are witty and cleaver, they'd likely follow the same logic as normal LRR. That does, of course, depend on if cH would think to do a sketch for cH^3. But I don't think they would just because whatever they made wouldn't be able to live up to the brilliance of what they set it as.

So, you're suggesting that cH^2 (as a universe) could make their own show cH^3 and have it be really good, and funny and such... but in the cH^1 universe, where cH^2 is just a show, no clips of cH^3 would actually appear on-camera in cH^2-the-show?

Well, no clips of cH^2 have yet appeared on cH^1-the-show yet, but the fact that it exists has leaked through, so obviously the idea is plausible...
