The Outhouse Creates Petition for Government Action against The Big Bang Theory

The Outhouse has started a petition to force The Big Bang Theory to be more funny.

This week has been consumed with fan outrage against a new episode of The Big Bang Theory, which lightly poked fun at female comic book readers.  While the Outhouse was quick to dismiss the controversy as blog generated drivel, our minds were quickly swayed after watching the episode. 

"It's not funny," said Outhouse television watcher ThanosCopter.  "At all.  I didn't laugh once.  There was one instance that I thought I was about to laugh, but it ended up being mild indegestion."

With that, the Outhouse has decided to fully back the wave of anti-Big Bang Theory sentiment and take the lead in bringing about everlasting change.  Unlike other websites, who whine and moan in order to get more hits, we have decided to take this fight to the next level and petition the United States government to step in.  So, the Outhouse has created an Whitehouse.gov petition to have the US government make the show more funny.

"This is a brilliant idea," said liberal activist and Outhouse webmaster Jude Terror.  "It's not like the White House has anything better to do."

The petition lays out the main issues with The Big Bang Theory, namely that it's not all that funny, and explains why this should be a government issue.  "Unfunny shows ruin the economy," explained ThanosCopter.  "No one wants to buy their DVDs.  Also, people getting upset about unfunny shows means that they're not doing things like building infrastructure or driving the economy or securing our freedom abroad." 

While the Outhouse will leave how the government chooses to intervene to President Obama and his staff, they did make a suggestion on how to proceed.  "We knew President Obama likes to use drone strikes to handle problems," said Terror.  "So we suggested he just use that as a bargaining chip."

To read the full petition and sign it, please follow this link.  Thank you for your help, and God bless America.

It's this really offensive show, where they make fun of geeks by exaggerating them into these horrible unlikable stereotypes with no redeeming qualities. They mostly play MMORPG's together and the main character talks to us through her webcam at the beginning and end of each episode.

Unless, of course, the petition reinforces a few of the very same geek stereotypes that are the reasons people dislike the show and the episode in particular. I especially point out the notion that we end up "taking this stuff too seriously", which was exactly what happened to the ladies in that episode. :P

Well, I wasn't actually describing the BBT, but another popular geek cult internet show.
