    Well, it may seem like a bunch of goofballs just being wacky on the internet (and don't misunderstand me, it is) but it IS their job. They get paid to do it, pour many hours into it, have to travel for it, and for some of them, its their *full time* job and how they pay their rent.

    Just because its a fun career is no reason it shouldn't be, you know, professional.

    I work in comic books. Same thing. There's contracts and "don't talk about this before it comes out" and stuff.

    Last year they signed release forms in case of injury. But this caused controversy as due to hearsay, a massive anti-TGWTG critic believed someone was crucified upside-down (that wasn't even close to the case) and claimed to have incriminating evidence to shut the site down. Other than his idiot fans, nobody believed him.

    He's the guy who did a "parody" video doing nothing but spouting mean spirited "jokes" at James Rolf and the TGWTG guys.

    He's gone back on that, but he posted a "proof video" which had a distorted voice that raised more questions from his fans. He's taken it down when he realized his latest attempt at drama failed.

    Basically, he tried to make them look bad using little evidence (at one point saying he'll confront Doug at a convention and show this), failed when nobody believed him, and now pretends it hasn't happened.

    What's funny is that he used to claim his name came from Salieri but now he's saying "I made it up".

    I can't believe a human cartoon character like that exists in... reality

    I mean, look at him. LOOK at him.

    I love so-called "comedians" who think <deadpan> is the ultimate comic delivery and seldom mix it up. No sense of timing, nothing but tossing monotonous one-liners. And that's not touching the asinine material. I mean, I can't even grasp what his beef is, really. Fat jokes? Really? You're not exactly a toothpick yourself.

    Dead pan humor is awesome.

    However it's an art, and doing it right is a lot more hard than amateurs would think, and by amateurs I mean that guy.

    Exactly. Amateurs apparently think "deadpan" means "not trying"

    Deadpan can be hilarious. But the jokes have to be sharp, and the timing has to be excellent. And its usually a bit more subtle. And its not limited to completely non-emotional monotone like Stephen Wright or Daria.

    Johnny Carson was well known for his low-key monologue and deadpan delivery. Stephen Colbert plays his character on the Colbert Report with a completely straight face most of the time, to the point a lot of people don't even realize it's a joke. Seinfeld was full of deadpan humor. Bill Murray is a master. Christopher Walken. Even William Shatner to a point. President Barack Obama.

    Will Ferrel couldn't do deadpan humor to save his life. Jim Carrey could, but doesn't.

    You wouldn't really call Colbert's style deadpan, though. He cracks himself up all the time.

    Bill Murray is indeed the master.

    That's his "parody" (and I'm using that really lightly) of Angry Joe called "Pissed Jose". His schtick is that he's an extremely racist Mexican stereotype because he's too lazy to actually parody Joe and instead relies on making tired "taco and burrito" lines. I should mention that Joe is actually Puerto Rican.

    Yeah, but that's not part of the act. He doesn't *try* and laugh, he just does. He shoots for deadpan serious most of the time, as if he fully believes every word he is saying, and that nothing he's saying is a joke.

    Its just so damn out of place though, its like two-three minutes of hum drum faux news and than BAM racist caricature. Than back to watching jealous paint dry almost immediately.
