You know what really grinds my gears?  Andy Samberg.  What moron decided that you had any comic ability.  On Saturday nights all I want to do is get drunk off of Long Island Iced Teas such that I can find the humor on SNL bearable.  It usually works  (Although every now and then there is something so un-funny that even my drunk ass can't break a smile, but that doesn't happen too often.)  But then when the screen goes black and I see the words "An SNL Digital Short", I want to get a gun and blow my face off.  (It is for this reason that I have cut back to 5 LIITs instead of my usual 8.)  Andy, no amount of alcohol can convince me that you are funny.

Fans of yours (i.e. people with an IQ below 40) think that your style of "comedy" is akin to that of Adam Sandler.  Listen, just because you're a Jew with the initials A.S. doesn't make you funny.  Your first "movie" Hot Rod grossed approximately the same as Sandler's first film Billy Madison, which was released in 1995 back when the average price of a movie ticket was $4.35.  In 2007 when your piece of crap film came out the ticket prices were on average 50% higher.  I'm sure Hot Rod and all of your fine acting in Laser Cats (BTW there are sequels!) helped you snag the lead voice role in the animated blockbuster Space Chimps (yeah, I hadn't heard of it either).

So Mr. Samberg I ask you to stop subjecting me to this type of retarded comedy.  Try something else.  Why not try your act in the Middle East?  I'm sure that you could show them how great life is in the Western World.  If that doesn't work, I'm sure you can get a job with the Blue Collar Comedy Tour -- they're always looking for horrible comedians.  Or better yet, why don't you sit down and watch one of your Digital Shorts after you've had 8 Long Island Iced Teas pumped into you.  Don't worry, I'll make sure that the shotgun is within reach.


Did daytrader really write this? Or is this just one of Mr.Obscure's many pseudonyms?

Anyway, my main point: Don't hate on Andy Samberg! He's part of one of the best comedy trios: The Lonely Island. Please see and watch 2 key videos: Stork Patrol and Kablamo!

Then keep in mind that SNL got Andy Samberg as sort of a package deal (I imagine) with the other two Lonely Island guys: Jorma and Akiva. And if you mock their importance, I'm fairly certain they've had their hand in just about anything that was actually funny on SNL in the last few years. Also, on the Lonely Island site, watch Just Two Guys. And then cry tears of comedic joy.

The opinions and commentary presented in Grind My Gears are solely those of the author, and in no way represent those of ObscureCraft as a whole.

Space Olympics was the only funny thing in an otherwise horrendous SNL season premiere.

Laser Cats is awesome. It's an insightful satire on the importance of the second amendment in regards to the freedom of the populace. Hint: substitute "guns" for "laser cats."

... and then substitute "walkie talkies" for "guns"

Nice one.
