This is as straight forward as possible.
I'm not shitting on comedy. I also realize you said you weren't trying to crap on his short as you mentioned. Maybe you were just pointing out that they were similar, i don't know, maybe there is some sort of unwritten thing comedians follow to let each other in on these sort of things. I was just throwing my 2 cents in and saying that i wouldn't concern myself with such information. Certainly we both would find the same type of circumstance or instance humorous, however, you would make it, and i would make it, definitely two different ways. Same joke different delivery, or rather fuck the delivery. that doesn't matter.
There is a moment.
Within that moment someone makes the choice to artistically maneuver.
Amy Poehler does not exist inside this moment i speak of, and neither does anyone else who isn't specifically involved.
Bland, I know.
This is as clear as i can be; which i do in fact realize is stupid, seeing as you weren't being a dick to gamblour or anything, but the whole parallel thinking thing isn't a part of the art itself, IMO. When i worry about that, nothing good comes out of it. I guess you were just trying to say you share a common bond in writing of sketches, so i guess i'm the dick, or village idiot, or whatever. my bad. just aggressive misunderstanding i suppose.
Funny short Gamblour.
Simpson's did it.
