    For some reason something in Dave’s post was causing an issue. I just removed his images and re-added them and now it’s fixed for some reason…

    Ah, thanks for that and sorry for breaking it.

    Clearly my meme was was simply too radical, too unconventional, too mould-breaking for the thread to accept.

    (I had tried to edit it to delete that second image and replace it with the third, which might have been part of it.)

    Yeah nothing you can do should cause an error so the fault will be with my code somewhere… Let’s see if it happens again!

    The second line does get a follow up laugh but it does feel like most people got the joke already

    #270740

    I think that’s fine in a not over explaining way, it’s set up and punchline.

    It’s not

    ”now i know why dogs lick their testicles, its to take away the taste of the food. Dogs find the food we give them so disgusting, they’d rather lick their own love junk to rid their mouths of the horrible taste.  Someone should make dog food thats tastes like dog testicles, they’d lap it up!”

    I don’t quite agree. “Now I know why dogs lick their testicles” is the punchline, and the set up is him eating the dog food. We didn’t need the follow up line to understand. It’s pretty obvious that when Lister brings up dogs licking testicles, it’s not a non-sequitur, it’s related to the thing he just did.

    However, what this proves to me is that “explaining the joke” isn’t necessarily bad. As long as it’s performed well, it can ride the laugh wave and make the overall flow of dialogue feel more natural, which is what happens there.

    I do think the first couple of times I read/saw the scene, my mind went more to ‘dogs have such low standards for taste, no wonder they’re not deterred from licking their dirty, smelly balls’ in the brief gap before getting the explanation. Similar but different.

    #270775

    I always thought it was an uncharacteristically over-explained gag.

    Brilliantly, that is a real bag from today’s episode of Moneybags. I might have changed the question though.

    Bonus points for replicating the Smega-Drive text style.

    I seem to have lost the option to attach an image.

    I reckon there’s got to be some mileage in mashing up the wrong setups and punchlines.
