Talk about gratuitously long and painful repeat threads, the three part festival of cut and paste horribly long e-mails (e-mail is so last century guys, get hip with the times!) mercifully comes to an end at BCC. Now we can all see why Steve's feeble attempts at humor in the Bloggernacle Times weekly Zeitgeist posts fall down flat. Because he is analyzing humor, its causes, and social context, rather than telling funny jokes (curelom grunts notwithstanding). Its like Dr. Spock trying to get yucks out of Capt. James T. Kirk. "Did you hear the one about the Vulcan, the Romulan, and the Human?". "Yes, yes, Spock, please don't tell it again, 'That's illogical' isn't much of a punchline." "'Dammit Jim, I'm a Doctor, not an elevator!'" "Nice try, Spock." The funniest thing in the entire debaucle is Todd Petersen's admission to having incontinence problems. Muahaha.

Aw, come on, you've got to admit there's some postmodern joy to be had in the very fact that someone got around to publishing a long, serious, even joyless discussion of Mormon humor.

If you want to post some of that postmodern joy, knock yourself out. Me? I'd rather eat cold plain oatmeal.
