This video is hilarious. Or maybe it’s not.
Wow. This video produced by the New Yorker was posted on YouTube (below) a week ago and has already been viewed 850 whole times. This may not sound like it’s a lot, but it’s hipster-viral.
It’s one of those Freudian things about humor not being funny unless it’s not, or something like that.
For some reason, about 1/2 of the comments on the YouTube video are about how dumb it is.
Those commenters obviously don’t get the joke. They are probably the same people who don’t read poems in the New Yorker because the poems don’t rhyme or make sense.
Or perhaps they don’t understand the way that humor about Donald Trump, the 45th president of the United States, isn’t funny because of, well, Freudian things.
Me. I like this video because of its nuanced commentary on the value of winning a National Magazine Award. (Spoiler: $2).
Enjoy! (Or not.)
