the Aristocrats

I did see this ... wow. Grotesque, yes. A bit weird too. (Does such an opinion expose a puritanical streak?) I did laugh, although moreso revisiting it afterwards with my good pals than during. :-) DEFINITELY "boundary-crossing" stuff, which George Carlin articulates well. Fascinating look inside comedy as an institution, too. Anyone for a socioeconomic class interpretation? Or are we talking basic social unredeemability - sheer outrageous excess? I always want there to be a message. ;-)

What's the moral element in such totally and intentionally amoral performances?

Sends along some jokes by Steven Wright. This one describes my recent bouts with awareness: "Last year I went fishing with Salvador Dali. He was using a dotted line. He caught every other fish." More at: http://www.quotationspage.com/quote/29655.html
