I have both a suit and a lab coat. Where does this put me?

Do the effects of a suit and a lab coat stack?

Bill has decided to focus on other aspects of his life than LRR. He has asked not to be written into non commodoreHUSTLE videos. He will still be taking part in Desert Bus I believe.

Possibly, although I think the best combination would be the lab coat with a LRR science shirt, for maximum effect.

I'll defend Cybertractor on this one in that I think I felt the same way while watching iPotato.

It took two minutes for the joke to actually become apparent, unless the joke was that the menu was completely in French, in which case that wasn't funny since I've been to a handful of restaurants that do not have a translated menu in English.

The bulk of the joke was the catapult. Which, after an initial chuckle, was carried on for another two minutes, then another joke of the same caliber was introduced in the end.

It had one joke going for it, and since I didn't find the joke funny, I didn't find the video to be a good watch.

And that's pretty much how I felt while watching iPotato. I thought Le Cafe was hilarious, though.

We've had this argument about several other sketches: sometimes comedy comes from solid comic performances and inherently ridiculous situations, rather than a great number of individual laugh-out-loud jokes. This is one of those times.

Which is not to say this sketch was entirely devoid of freakin' hilarious lines. Far from it; "I think that monsieur will find the catapult with this dish much more to his liking", followed by "Well, yes, but it is hardly worth mentioning; you probably won't even notice we are doing it" had me rolling in the aisles.

"Rolling in the aisles" is an expression and does not necessarily indicate actual aisle-rolling. If you are entirely aware of this and were trying for humour, sorry, but you failed.

Please explain why it's necessary to make a broad generalisation that applies to every LRR video appear to be a correction of my statement, which specifically applies to those LRR videos with a similar style of comedy to Le Cafe.

I was not implying that you literally rolled in the aisles; I was simply pointing out the silliness of the expression. If you are entirely aware of this and were trying for apologetic disillusionment, sorry, but you failed.

I thought you might not be serious, but the way you phrased it made it impossible to tell.

As I understood it, you were originally replying to Cybertracktor. Cybertracktor said that the video was based around a single core joke which he didn't find funny. You responded by saying the video was based on a single core joke which you found it funny. I apologise if I misunderstood, but it seemed like that was your point.

EDIT: you know, I had a migraine yesterday and made some strange posts. I actually have no idea why I decided to fix your post instead of just responding.

I think slightly inspired by this:

But then again, got to give LRR props for basing their videos on awesome stuff.
The only ones that face reality are the ones too stupid to duck when they see it coming!
