I've always thought that in itself was funny in an ironic sort of way, as someone who's tried watching caddyshack and national lampoon vacation with minimal success. Comparing what baby boomer humor found funny, and what millennial humor finds funny with its metaness and such provides a nice contrast.
Also its funny that Chevy really was the Jeff winger of his time back during the 70s and 80s. In his roles he was considered cool and suave, no wonder he resents/jealous/wants Jeff approval so much, wishing that was still him. One day we'll probably think exactly like Pierce when gen z's kids become us and we become Pierce age. Scary thought lol
There's a line. If I put myself down, it's for a laugh. A lot of times, it's the mirror I'm holding up to myself so that you can be more comfortable making your own jokes. Just like with other forms of humor, a lot of people don't get it or aren't good at it, which is normal. What isn't normal is thinking you have free license to then think it's okay to insult me because you think that's all I do to myself so I must be okay with it. Open books are for reading, not for tearing the pages out of. You wanna put me down because I can take it? It better be funny.
I just wish the damn LGBTQ knew how to laugh at themselves but they have too much pride in themselves that they just pull their victim cards over a dumb slur. I don't care if straights make fun of me (even though it's widely accepted today). I'm just not going to run to "LGBTQ Nation" and spark outrage. I would just likely make some self deprecating deprecating humor out of it.
