The Mythical Sodomor

    13/07/2016

I tried to think of the most mundane question possible, and this is what I could come up with. It’s not just the fact that it’s a banal question, it’s that it has become a kind of double cliché. I.e. how the stereotypical comedian in the 80s and 90s did airplane food jokes and other “What’s the deal with x?” stuff. Seinfeld of course being the go-to example.

And now, parodies of this kind of stand-up have become somewhat hacky themselves. And so you become what you make fun of. This is what happens when you take it even further: meta-parody.
