Ridiculously Funny!!
20 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was the first episode I've seen in this series and I am hooked. The idea that someone would become a crack head in order to receive welfare payments is absurd. These guys are really funny. They ask the drug dealer how much he "recomends for a first time user." When Mac explains the "Work for Welfare" program to Charlie and Frank, watch Charlie's reaction. "I don't understand--are you asking me a question?" There are so many little comments and subtleties that are hilarious. I am not ashamed to admit that I taped a few episodes and watched them a few times each. You pick up new things every time you watch. Very Funny! Great show. I hope they make a lot more episodes.
