We hear daily that folks are fleeing California in record numbers. It’s a beautiful state but has become over regulated with more rules being added almost daily.
The Babylon Bee is an equal opportunity parody site. Parody, once a very popular genre of entertainment, is fighting the tide of “ wokism/cancel culture. Everyone gets offended these days and it makes me chuckle to think what would happen if the likes of Richard Pryor, Don Rickels, George Carlin, Steve Martin ( yes, that Steve Martin who got his start doing stand up) Franklin Ajaye and others dropped in and did today what they did 30-40 years ago.
For you youngsters out there ( or those with short memories), Richard Pryor was recorded doing stand up in 1974. The title of the album was “That N*gger’s Crazy”. The album spent four weeks at #1 on Billboard music Charts (R&B/Soul) and received the Grammy in 1974 for the Best Comedy Album. I bought the record four years later in college and sold it a few years ago for a lot more than I paid for it.
What’s happened to comedy? Where has our collective sense of humor gone? Why are so many offend by such unimportant things?
Here is a recent Babylon Bee video about a couple that moves from California to Texas and is experiencing their first neighborhood cook-out. The funniest part is at the end and I also think they missed the opportunity to bring the very visible side arms into the skit, but they did not.
It is called Parody folks. Don’t take yourself too seriously.
