Not only do they lack the stones, they lack the moral clarity that would help lead them into action.
But really, Jimmy and Jason, if you want to create the illusion of edge, at least take a risk.
Stop choosing targets approved by your sheep-like peers. The only people you’re impressing are those paid to pretend you’re funny—i.e., your dates, and your agents.
Which is why Jason thinks it’s cool to hit the pope but lacks the beans to do the same to Muhammad.
A FRIENDLY NOTE TO JIM CARREY AND JASON BIGGS
Look: the Jim Carrey gun control video wasn’t about the second amendment.
It was really about Carrey–a waning star embracing sanctioned targets to create the false front of intelligence. Sort of like America’s drone program.
So it’s fitting we began this Holy Week with Carrey ridiculing the late Charlton Heston, and now end with Jason Biggs tweeting predictable jokes about the Pope.
There were three. Trust me, they’re forgettable. As is Jason.
But Pope jokes are as old as the Pope, and by all means, make them. That’s why our country’s great, because washed-up comics have the right to suck.
Based on that, Jason and Carrey are civil rights pioneers. They’re sort of the Jackie Robinsons of sucking.
