Sitcoms tell me that every show of strong emotion warrants laughter.

    to be honest, I don’t quite get what you are saying. But I think I do.

  2. dan says:

    yeah – laughter is what people do when they’re too afraid to display more appropriate behaviour.

  3. Or a big fat ‘Ohhhhhhhh’ from the crowd as two people sob and sniff and say “I’m sorry for running away, becoming a lesbian, loading up with coke, and bunking school. I’ll never do it again Dad. I love you.” And then the nine year old kid goes back to their homework as if nothing ever happened. Ohhhhhh.

    i thought that sorta stuff only happened in real life, but not in movies.

    Only because the strong emotions in sitcoms are so out of proportion to the situation. Usually it involves hiding something from another character, and dealing with the snowball of lies that ensues…

    Sitcoms tell me that nothing in life is worth caring about, it’s only good laughing at

    the canned laughter reminds me to activate my laughter program

  7. A good trick that will leave you and surrounding persons in hysterics is to laugh very loudly along with every snippet of canned laughter. By the fifth laugh you’ll find the lie snowballing to be a lot funnier.
