Funny, But Just Not Funny Enough

Whilst a very clever mockumentary quite brilliantly realised by Liam Williams it could not ultimately rise above its subject matter.

The bloggers world is vapid and mostly full of morons lacking any skill or talent. With that as a given why would we feature these guys or give credence or analysis to their doggerel thoughts.

Lastly the virtue signalling, the on trend flexing and liberal authoritarianism does not make for comedy gold.

In summation I just did not laugh enough, it was too clever and the humour was slightly repetitive.

The writing was brilliant but needs to focus on a more deserving topic, no more of this please.
