These things just get recycled and recycled, and it stopped being funny from overuse. Yo, it's mothafuckin' Gustav Mahler in da hizzouse! Symphonies n shit! Now check me--Gustav on the decks, imma sous vide some Icelandic mothafuking lamb!

On the flip side, you've got the Ducreux meme (render rap in antiquated diction, essentially), and its cousin, take rap and just butcher it with WASPy delivery (Hot Chip, Columbia's Bitches Ain't Shit a capella).

I don't find them offensive (though others may disagree)--but the only joke is in the incongruity and these jokes have become so prevalent and so overused, that they are their own thing. They're not incongruous anymore. They just are, and there's no there there.

Katjusa Roquette: "A few words that aren't bitch:

This actually throws it on its head. The problem is not that there is something fundamentally wrong with using the word bitch in order to describe some problematic female. The problem is using a word which means "problematic female" and does so in a derogatory fashion.

In the context of talking about, say, antioxidants being all up in this bitch, we are not talking about a woman filled with antioxidants (presumably, from the bottom upwards). The meaning might be more along the lines of "this [forcefully awesome thing] is full of antioxidants".

So I would suggest "unicorn", as unicorns are similarly forcefully awesome.

Thus providing us with, "antioxidants are all up in this unicorn".

I hope that one day people will stop pretending that vulgar language alone is witty.

Humor is incompatible frames of reference. Contrast. "My dog has no nose." "How does it smell?" "Awful!"

Admit it. Before you saw this, you had never before seen or heard vulgar language used to describe high levels of emotive desire for vegetables.

The vulgar language is not the humor. It's the vulgar language within this frame of reference.

If you can't see that ... do you get a lot of other jokes explained to you?

While that's some excellent condescension there, I think it's fair to say that most of us have seen "vulgar language used to describe high levels of [sentiment] for [incongruous thing]" many, many times. We get it, and it's boring.

This is great and all - encouraging different sectors of the population to eat more fresh fruits and veggies.

You know what would be more great? Helping those different sectors of the population, namely low income areas, get access to that fresh produce in the first place by eliminating food deserts. If fresh produce was more accessible, I'm sure it'd get eaten more.

Otherwise, this criticism is without foundation. Just hipster-ish standing around going "Simpsons did it first."

Indeed, according to this logic, any English literature, anywhere, is a mere ripoff of, say, Beowulf. Heroic journey? Pfft. Groknard the Neaderthal story-teller did it first.

Fair enough, son, but I live in an area with a shit-ton of fresh produce, and the kids all eat the muthafuckin' flaming hot cheetos.

Sometimes, marketing doesn't have to be evil. (Though I think parents are the market here, which is also fair enough as the baby boomers/GenXers are the folks who've ruined our diets.)
