As human beings have evolved, the level of sophistication involved in our entertainment- especially humor- has evolved with us. But as much as the evolutions have moved us forward, there are still guttural parts in our DNA that still never got past the simple pleasures in life. A monkey wearing a suit. A nice wet inappropriately timed fart. Some stupid hillbilly getting himself injured while trying to do a silly trick. And of course, talking fish.
Not cartoon talking fish. That sounds like a bad Disney movie. No, I am talking about animatronics talking fish. Like the Billy Bass thing that was all the rage ten or so years ago. People love a nice singing fish. Don't believe me? Try watching this McDonald's commercial for their new Filet-O-Fish deal. Not just a good value, but god damned funny.
