Today it is not the classroom nor the classics which are the repositories of models of eloquence, but the ad agencies.
~ Marshall McLuhan (July 21, 1911 - December 31, 1980)
If you really look at humor, that's what most of it is anyway. Somebody wisecracking at somebody else. Putting them down. If you look at all the sitcoms, that's all sitcoms are today. Things never change. Sardonic, sarcastic humor is always prevalent. It's hard to do something funny without being that way. It's classier if you didn't have to resort to it, I think.
