Word play is the lowest form of comedy. Discuss.
>>
The yuyushikis are all retarded which is why wordplay peals to them so much in every single episode.

You will probably change your mind if you click this link.

NOPE. Reference is the lowest form of comedy. Not even parody, just reference.

"Hey guys, remember pokemon?" *captive audience chuckles* "GOT TO CATCH THEM ALL, AM I RIGHT?" *looped, canned laughter for a solid 60 seconds*
>>
>>100319758
Reference isn't comedy. It makes me smirk a bit, but it's not comedy unless it jabs at it a little.

Wordplay, on the other hand, has nothing going for it. Absolutely nothing.

I don't agree with you OP, but Yuyu was shit

Nigga are you serious?
Wordplay isn't the lowest form of comedy. First off, it exists in almost every culture. There aren't many forms of humor that are as universal as wordplay, and on top of that wordplay has existed for hundreds of years, it's not bound to time and trends like regular humor is.

It also demonstrates a unique skill. Understanding how to manipulate words and use them in ways that were not intended shows a mastery and understanding of a language that not many other forms of humor can claim to have.

It's the lowest form of wit, but wit is the highest form of comedy.

This makes it a pretty high form of comedy in general.
>>
>>100326237
What's the highest for of wit, or at least one of them?

highest form of wit is observational comedy

What are some comedic anime that don't rely on puns & manzai?

Because I'm pretty sure those are the only forms of comedy in Japan.
>>
Anime is the lowest form of television. Discuss.
>>
>>100326713
soap operas and reality tv would beg to differ
>>
>>100326663
Japan has never had a grasp of comedy. Nichibros is the closest they ever came.
>>
>>100326713
No, Mexican Soap Operas are the lowest form of television.
And Turkish movies are the lowest form of film.
>>
>>100326663
Excel Saga has some decent Monty Python/early South Park-esque absurdism going on
>>
That's sarcasm actually.
>>
But OP what about fart jokes
>>
There are only two forms of humor which are universally funny across all cultures: farts and testicle strikes. These are the highest forms of humor.
>>
EEEEHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!??!?!
>>
Not even remotely. Even at its worst, wordplay still requires at least some semblance of quick wit and understanding of language, not to mention more clever and involved wordplay jokes. The lowest form of comedy is undoubtedly the type of crude middle-school bullshit exhibited by most /a/ posters, basically "heh heh heh, I'm going to say something relating to sex at an inappropriate time in a hyperbolic manner. Aren't I clever." This can be funny, but only if done in an interesting or unexpected manner, or by using humorous wordplay.

Except it's the highest form, puns are the shit.
>>
>>100327449
I can assure you, from know a guy who religiously looked up and spouted out puns, that wordplay at its worst is incredibly awful. I agree with the rest of your post, though.
>>
>>100327648
>from know
from knowing

>>100327648
It doesn't count if you don't think of the jokes yourself. Someone could steal the most clever joke ever told from a comedian but that doesn't make him clever, just the original guy who thought of it, nor does him butchering the joke make the original worse.

All /a/ posters have an equal number of copies of the genes located on chromosome 21.

Except this guy. He has too many.
>>
>>100327648

I guess that guy wasn't consistently punny, was he?
>>
>>100327904
I don't know about that. I'd say a good 60% are in the same boat as him.

good one though
