Flashback~Forget About it-Friday

It is rare that I am able to both Flashback and Forget About it on the same topic. Even rarer that said topic would involve a slightly edited version of a cartoon. The fact that I made reference to Jeffrey Dahmer in my post on Tuesday, probably played no role in my choosing this…

Flashback~Forget About itMy favorite episode of Ren & Stimpy–the condensed version.

I didn’t love every episode of Ren & Stimpy. Not even close. But the Rubber Nipple Salesmen had me both rolling on the floor with laughter–and cringing. Since the cartoon took me to both ends of the spectrum, I am going to deem it worthy of both remembering and forgetting. This episode originally aired in 1992. All these years later, my husband and I still find opportunity to utter, “Call the police.” That’s staying power.

Can you think of a movie, TV series, cartoon, etc., that made you laugh but also made you feel slightly (or very) uncomfortable? Pulp Fiction, for example, had me both laughing hysterically and covering my eyes in horror.

  1. Laughing and making me feel uncomfortable at the same time is not so easily achieved, however there could be no other Sitcom on television that is a prime example of this premise than “The Office”. “Steve” Carell makes me crazy with the outlandish situtions his writers have him in and his responses [verbal or otherwise] to those situations, are at times mind boggling and other times flat out funny [it’s like a train wreck, you don’t want to watch but you still do]. So there you have it, the Office gets my vote for laughing out loud uncomfortable.
