Tripping Along The Ledge


This is funny

Fast forward to about 1:01 on the video above. Then watch this second video after the jump. Yeah, I know. These clips have been going around since at least last Friday. It’s now almost Wednesday. But goddamnit, this is funny.
P.S. People are now posting cover versions of the Bed Intruder Song to YouTube.

    Its a deadly track isn’t is, all joking aside. I reckon if they released it as a single, it’d go to number one.

    You know, I was thinking about this today and I think it really illustrates a point I was making on Edel Coffey’s radio show at the weekend. We were talking about Tommy Tiernan and Edel was asking if some of his stand up was in bad taste, whether it went too far sometimes etc. etc.

    I said that, in my opinion, there are only two categories of comedy: Funny and not funny.

    Concepts such as “politically incorrect” or “in poor taste” only come into play when something ISN’T funny. When something IS funny, all of those sorts of considerations go out the window.

    The above is a perfect example of what I was talking about. It could technically be judged in poor taste on any number of counts: not least that it revolves around an attempted rape that must been highly traumatic for the girl involved.

    But it’s also hilariously funny. And that supersedes everything else.
