From "Metalocalypse: Dethkomedy (#1.5)"
It appears that Dethklok has taken to studying comedy. This is not good, gentlemen.
With all due respect, Senator, how can this mean anything to world economics?
It means everything. It's true that comedy has been no threat to us over the last fifteen years, but with Dethklok in the mix, they threaten to excite a field of entertainment we all know to be dead. Gentlemen: our comedy specialist, Dr. Donald Gorfield.
Dr. Donald Gorfield
Well, the people of the world are depressed and stupid. They look to comedy to lighten the load of their boring, dreadful lives. These idiots have been force-fed garbage from our own secret cable networks and our own employees covering as high-profile standup and sketch comics.
