210072GAG REEL — “Just like plumbers, or programmers, or surgeons, being a television writer is, at heart, just a job, and just like plumbers, or programmers, or surgeons, television writers do sometimes take shortcuts.

And just as a plumber’s shortcut can result in hot shit spraying over your floor, or a surgeon’s shortcut can result in hot shit spraying over your floor, a television writer’s shortcut can result in hot shit spraying over your floor, via your television. Writing shortcuts typically take the form of ancient jokes, first thought up when the world was young and used so many times that they crumble to ash as soon as they’re uttered. Many of them no longer even make sense, as they’re based on observational humor of things that can no longer be observed. Here, then, are six ancient gags the world has left behind.”
