Funny is a precious resource. With Mr. CK doing an hour a year, PLUS his show, PLUS telling stories on late night talk shows, PLUS whatever else he gets up too, the world is running out of funny.
The rest of us work hard to think of a funny, original, intelligent premise, that this guy hasn't already done, but by the time we get to the club and tape it, we're too late. He just depicted himself masturbating to Hot Lips Hoolihan from the TV series MASH! C'mon Louie, that was pretty specifically, intimately mine! Yeah, yeah, I know you didn't steal it. I know that you came by it genuinely. Thats what hurts so bad.
Look, just take some time off okay. Go sit by a river or something. And we'll each give you a small percentage of our earnings. That's a LOT of comics, each giving you just a small tribute to keep you in retirement for as long as possible. What do ya say?
Please sign this important position, to save this precious resource and stop this maniac from using up the funny quicker than new funny can be grown.
FACT: One minute of a Louis C.K. special can render 2,000 first year hacks completely without material. His specials run IN EXCESS OF 60 MINUTES!
Please sign. Stop the madness.
