What is the psychology of stupid comedy? Are people just happy to see someone who makes them feel smart? Something like Beavis & Butthead, I don't get it. I'm pretty sure I could watch every minute ever produced and not once laugh out loud. I'd be shocked if I even chuckled more than once or twice. Do people watch this stuff when they are drunk? That might help... (actually, I'm pretty sure I couldn't watch it all without committing suicide)

Am I an intellectual elitist? I don't think so, but then elitists rarely admit to being one, right?

I'm not trying to start a discussion on B & B specifically, just figured it was a well known example. It just seems to me that the amount of "stupid" comedy has increased over the years, which I find minorly annoying.

Perhaps it is just me truly becoming the curmudgeon I've claimed to be for years...
