Either I have become entirely humourless or the audience was behaving dutifully, I have no way of knowing which. On the other hand there are programs at the same time of day on the same radio channel which I enjoy for their comedy.
If anyone would like to put in a good word for Mr Edelman I'd be grateful. We might then discuss this new variant of "humour" which I have entirely failed to learn. What I found myself doing throughout was thinking "that's obviously untrue... that's surely not accurate... that's impossible" and I'm quite certain if I tested his claims one by one against Wikipedia I'd be proved right. Is blatantly, transparently lying a new comedic norm? What point is there?
Satire, if that's what was being attempted, does not consist of serial lying. Some people seem incapable of realizing this.
