It was very interesting for me to read the article. Thanx for it. I like such topics and everything that is connected to them. I definitely want to read a bit more on that blog soon.

"Without professional scolds, where would the humorist be?" Chance are that they become scolds themselves. Not of their own audiences, of course, since they tend to play only to the like-minded, but of those they consider to be unhip or out of touch. So you find people like Whoopee Goldberg and Janeane Garofolo becoming sectarian cheerleaders whose fans laugh at them not because they say anything funny, but because they speak The Truth.

As Philip Roth said in another context, if anything goes, then nothing matters. The humor I like best is the type that makes people laugh like blazes and then say "that's not funny."
PC "fatal to humor"? It is fatal to reason.
As for the finishing paragraph of Mr Flynn´s, I am reminded of my days in the corporate finance; whenever I let out anything vaguely incomprehensible, the response would be: What are you blabbering?
