A friend in college once said

"3 things will always be funny: farts, afros and dogs fucking."
It stuck with me. And i hold it as a welcome constant in a world of constant change.
Though, just talking with someone today, we decided we might exchange monkeys for afros?

Regardless, Common Sense Media doesn't think ANY of these things are funny, and therefore really REALLY hates Squidbillies. This is rich, rich stuff.

and honestly, I'm glad to be a part of this negative shit-storm of a 'review.'
I think something's being done right.

I don't think monkeys are ALWAYS funny. But they are funnier than robots.
You could add bike crashes to the list. Always funny.

Unfortunately she mentions neither your character's name nor gives you credit for the voice. Apparently you're the one ray of sunshine in a show that's otherwise without merit. I'd be protesting that bullmess! Leave her a message and spout some ancient Hebrewlaic-Somarifornian epithets at her and see if that accomplishes something.

i love that thing snooty people do when they say how awful something is and then describe it in detail that only someone who really took their time and watched it could give.
she did that.
like the priest in harold & maude:
i would be remiss in my duty if i did not tell you that the idea of intercourse - the act of your firm, young body... comingling with... withered flesh... sagging breasts... and flabby buttocks... makes me want to vomit.

"While adults may be able to put the show's humor into context, its crassness makes it completely inappropriate for kids."

Funny, I can't put the show's humor into context.

Maybe it's Squidbillies' total lack of dads-getting-hit-in-the-crotch-while-setting-up-pinatas clips (a-la America's Funiest Home Videos - a truly meritorious show) that has her feelin' so darn grumpy. I know that's why I don't like it.
