Politics in Sam & Max?

Aside from the less-subtle references to various private body parts, I think the TellTale writers are scraping the bottom of the barrel for jokes. Maybe some fresh minds are needed. I was offended by the name used for the dinosaur exhibit in the museum. It shows a sophomoric view of politics that only mind-numbed liberals could possess. I'm waiting to draw my final conclusions about the likelihood that I will purchase another TellTale game - to see if there are any references to Doofus Pelosius, Rankus Reedius, or Hurlus Huseinus Obamanus. That would at least show a relatively balanced imbalanced humor. Gee, I wonder if this post will make it past the free-speech police at Tell Tale?

    So are conservatives, and just about any political party.
    I know that's meant as a joke.



    Yeah, well... it doesn't really matter WHAT party you belong to does it? Americans in general are a bunch of whiny, douchey, namby pamby complainers. And, no, that wasn't racist, considering that I'm American and proud of it.

    @Remolay said: Episodes 104 & 203 for Clinton and Gore respectively. I honestly don't remember that many political jokes, possibly because I don't give much of a damn for politics unless its humorous.

    Hell, in 104 there's a cue card that says, "I did not have sex with that women." Plus there's the whole fact that the puppet is a spoof off of Clinton anyway. And, you're aboso friggin lutely right. If we can't laugh at ourselves and get all up in protest if politics are mentioned humorously IN A GAME, then what's the point of playing a GAME? If we're going to say that Sam and Max are political mudslingers, then why hasn't Saturday Night Live been canceled yet, considering it makes fun of practically every man, women, and child involved with politics on a weekly basis?

    @Remolay said: Palin is also a bit of a boob and an easy target for jokes. Why is this even an issue? I mean seriously, politicians are there to be made fun of.



    Exactly. Of course, Libertarian that I am, I don't give a damn about either party anyway. :D

  • Would you prefer they stuck in some jabs about Justin Bieber Fever instead?

  • @doodinthemood said: This is a weird counterargument. The plant is clearly a reference to Sarah Palin. I'm not even an American and I realised that as soon as seeing the name and info.



    I repeat: Obvious means Abosolutly everyone will get it

    This is NOT OBVIOUS! The only way you could see that as Sarah Palin is if you were looking for something to complain about it the first place or someone told you about it

    Oh my god...

    oh.
    my.
    god.

    I.. that's the first time I've seen that and... words escape me. How does Fox get away with that? Why do people like O'Reilly and Glen Beck even have jobs like this? It's insane.

    I'm sorry I know I'm derailing the thread slightly but... why? How? Are you used to stuff like that in America? You really shouldn't be it's a bit too much.

    Slightly back on topic I'm all for people showing enthusiasm for their political views, god knows politics in the UK could be a bit more lively but not like that! I mean, when you get people like the TC who take offence are "perceived" jokes, what would they be like when someone actively questions their views?

    I wasn't aware that American was a race.

  • Well, it is acording to the theme song for American Dad.

    oh and by the way, Most of us aren't used to that. We're used to Colbert and Jon Stewart making fun of stuff.

    Colbert always taking it a step farther.

    Oh yes I've seen Colbert and Jon Stewart and they at least are funny. At least they'll never have any shortage of material.

    When did Jon Stewart start being funny? He's informative (kinda)... but not funny. At least I think so

  • I'll just tag this thread and then pretend it doesn't exist.

    Can't believe i'd never seen that one before. O'Reilly's a total bully and a self-serving egotist, there's no way anyone could defend that kind of thing
