I just prefer comedy in my comedies, rather than gimmicks.

Is it going to be Punchy vs the world again?

I did like Britta's inept photography though.

wtf are you talking about? the episode was loaded with jokes. :smt011

But how many of those came from the Ken Burns parody? It wasn't even a parody really.

You're the only one that's made that connection.

You're arguing with yourself.

I'm the only one that's made the connection that the episode is a Ken Burns parody? You can't all be that dumb.

I can't tell if you're serious or not Hab.

In case you are, here is an IGN review acknowledging it as a Ken Burns parody

http://tv.ign.com/articles/122/1222503p1.html

and Entertainment weekly

http://tvrecaps.ew.com/recap/community- ... illow-war/

or go to any other discussion of this show on the internet.

If you're just joking, then I guess I don't get the joke.

You do know how good comedy writing works right?

Not to mention how these characters on the show feed into the madness they surround themselves with?

He was picking on Punchy who was claiming there weren't many jokes in the episode.

From every single one of the deans lines this episode to another awesome Leonard moment to everything between Annie and Jeff, the episode was very packed with it's humor and laugh out loud jokes.

Punchy though seems to think differently.
