Worst Sitcom Joke Ever—Broadcasted Daily on TBS
Who knows when sitcom buffs will see a new show nearly as good as Everybody Loves Raymond, Friends, or Seinfeld. Todays' American sitcoms don’t have much to offer--they vary from bad to worse. There’s one bad show that caught my attention with one of its jokes—The Bill Engvall Show. If you watch TBS, you couldn’t have missed the worst sitcom joke ever, broadcasted repeatedly as part of a commercial for Engvall’s show.
Bill Engvall and me
If you’ve never seen it, I’ll try to tell it, but I don’t know if my verbal description can capture the stupidity of those who produced the show and especially those who air it so frequently on TBS: Bill helps his wife fold the family laundry, when he picks a pair of black lacy panties and says, “How come I haven’t seen any of these?”
His wife answers, “They’re your daughter’s.”
“Oh, no!” Bill exclaims in shock and throws the panties back into the laundry basket. And then we are supposed to burst into laugher.
Remember that this is the current commercial for the show so it doesn’t end here. After the scene we see Bill Engvall saying TBS’s slogan: VERY FUNNY! But the joke is on Bill. A funny sitcom joke, Bill, is I-WAS-IN-THE-POOL scene from Seinfeld.
Now I realize why Jerry Seinfeld's anual income from his show was $267 milllion in 1998. It was his ability to make us laugh.
