Two fools in a restaurant


I can't take credit for this observation. Plenty of people have defined the two types of comedy this way, and I'm just spreading it further.

Yes, that is the normal Brother America. It didn't feel right to use Trump America for this. It would have given it a different meaning than intended.

Thank you so much for differentiating between Normal America, and Trump America. We really are doing everything we can to fix that mistake!

"It didn't feel right to use Trump America for this. It would have given it a different meaning than intended."

And that's why you should stop using the Trump America. Every other character tries to be the country as a whole, throughout the years. There's no reason that America should get this treatment. A lot of your comics age well because they're much more timeless. The whole Trump avatar thing will age badly, and it doesn't really add anything to many of the comics. It'd be one thing if you're explicitly mocking Trump (which I'm still against, I prefer when this comic is about the nations, not one particular leader at one particular point in time), but many of them it's either pointless, or can give a different intention than intended.

British Comedy:
Waiter: Your soup, Sir
Guest: Thank you
Waiter: Will there be anything else?
Guest: Not for now thank you
*Waiter begins to walk off
Guest: Oh, Waiter!
Waiter: Yes?
Guest: There appears to be a fly in my soup
Waiter: A what?
Guest: a fly, there’s a fly right there in my soup
Waiter: Ah yes, so there is
Guest: Well? Why is there a fly in my soup?
Waiter: I don’t know sir, maybe it got lost on it’s way to the cantaloupes
Guest: What? Oh never mind, just fix it!
Waiter: Oh, of cause sir, would you like me to get you another?
Guest: YES!
*Waiter takes the plate and heads back to the kitchen
*Waiter returns with soup
Waiter: Your soup, Sir
Guest: Thank you
Waiter: Will there be anything else?
Guest: Not for now thank you
*Waiter begins to walk off
Guest: Oh, Waiter!
Waiter: Yes?
Guest: There now appears to be TWO flies in my soup!
Waiter: Yes?
Guest: Well? Why are there two flies in my soup?
Waiter: Well you told me to get you another

American Comedy:
Honestly I don’t watch enough American comedy and I’m far too caffeine deprived to write anything but the joke would properly be that the fly was secretly a bomb the whole time or that an American would order soup in the first place

So relieved to see pre-2017 Brother America. Now if only we could do the same with the real thing...

So happy, and yet so sad to see normal Brother America. I miss the time before I had to worry about a racist, misogynistic, homophobic, habitually lying sexual predator who possibly has dementia starting a nuclear holocaust. I really need to get out of this country.

And this is why I can't STAND American sitcoms. The main characters are ass-holes! (British comedy is better... but too dark for my regular viewing pleasure)

Danish version:
The waiter then goes out to do drugs, beat his wife all while the cook of the restaurant serves human meat to the customers.

DANISH COMEDY EVERYONE!

I'm really tired of folks apologizing for Trump being president. First off, the people apologizing almost certainly didn't vote for him, so it's not like they're responsible.

Second, after looking at what he's actually said and done, I fail to see anything worth even a fraction of the hysteria his presidency has produced. This includes perusing his Twitter account, which is pretty tame compared to the reactions people have had.

Good call, you're right it wouldn't have made as much sense. Happy to see America looking normal instead of like a rotting orange.

I'm happy to see the old-brother America but I think the Trump one should stay until me and my fellow citizens earn the old one back. We're making strides in that regard but not there yet!
