The Poe's law is strong in this one.

Not to mention all that socialistic free air that people are breathing. Why not give the free market a crack at supplying air more efficiently at a reasonable profit.

Beaming advertising into your dreams is a promising idea too. The Republicans are all in favor of new markets like these.

@4 This is as clear an illustration as anything I've ever seen of the problems that conservatives have with understanding what comedy is and why things are funny

The "GOP Teens" feed is funny because it's aimed at the GOP itself - and at bad social media marketing, and at aging people trying to stay relevant generally - whereas the democrat teens thing appears to be aimed at.. fictional teenagers? Who can't figure out how to put pants on by themselves?

#6, #7 are saying:

I do the same exact thing as you are doing.

But while my same thing is brilliant parody, your same thing is Cro-Magnon social commentary to be taken at face value.

What @6/7 said. I'm not sure how bailo figures out how to put his pants on either. Stop being so fucking stupid, or at least stop being proud of it.

There definitely is something different about the two feeds. I think the problem is that GOP feed is mocking the GOP for being racist and the Democrats feed is mocking the Democrats for being... also racist. It should rather mock the Democrats for being overly inclusive. The women's sports one starts out okay, but no laughing? Now you're mocking the Democrats for being sexist, not for being politically correct.

Right wingers don't watch comedy shows because they feel so victimized, but the Daily Show, Colbert, SNL, and the talk shows all take shots at Democrats all the time. If you aim right it can sting little, but still be very funny.

The reason Democrat_Teens isn't funny is because its not a parody of the absurdity of the democratic party. What I mean by this is that there is 0% chance any well democratic candidate would ever say those lines. Well the GOP teens twitter might accidentally be retweeted by a conservative politician if it says around long enough, which makes it pretty funny.

@8: John, you don't get it.

Have you ever noticed that people say that to you a lot?

How about "Democrat_Teens show your support for all that Obama is doing to build a path to citizenship"? That would be hilarious since Obama is deporting more people, more inhumanely while lamely pretending he supports immigration reform. @4, this stuff virtually writes itself - advocating for equal pay yesterday while the White House doesn't even practice it.

Or maybe it's just because you're really BAD at it, Bailo...

JB proves he doesn't understand satire, or how block quotes work. JBITDMFOTP.
