Things that aren’t funny confuse me
I knew this whole Bruno debacle was on it’s way. I hadn’t watched a trailer or anything due to the fact it’s not 1985 and i wasn’t aware that pretending to be flamboyantly gay was still even sorta socially acceptable. And then I went to the movies. And I saw the full trailer. It was sorta shocking. It was uncomfortable. It wasn’t funny. It was definitely sort of offensive. I looked to my left and right to see other people’s reactions. They were all laughing. It baffled me.
I saw Borat. I’ve watched Ali G. While neither particularly appeals to me, I did see the humor in some of it. It was ridiculous and silly. And while both definitely bordered on offensive. You found yourself more confused by the morality in the whole thing, than it the morality of the character itself.
But this…not so much.
