Does All Comedy End in Hate

Two of my all time comedy heroes Eric Idle and John cleese are fighting, and using public forums to grouse at each other.
It's a goddamn shame. Speaking as someone who has been drawn into the same kind of silliness in the past, I just wish people would pick up a fucking phone and yell at each other instead of muddying the comedy gifts, and joy that they have shared with us all.
The battle of words over the fate of Ren & Stimpy so soured the memory of the show, that anytime some posts anything about the show, the stupid stupid battle starts all over again. It's sad that entertainment gets corrupted over money, and egos to the point that it robs the joy of the original project from it's fans.
It makes me want to do this.

Eric Idle and John Cleese are fighting? Oh, good grief! That's a shame. It's a shame that such comedic geniuses are going at each other. Hopefully, something or someone will bring them to their senses.

As for your own experiences, I'm sorry it all soured your experience on R&S. It was a very good show, and I thank you and all of the other artists for making it so wonderful and unique. I'd tip my hat to you, but I haven't got a hat. :)

Today's lesson is: don't let money and ego destroy a good thing.

Happy New Year, Vincent! Here's to another year of fantastic drawings and in just a mere five months, I'll finally be able to experience the world (high school graduation) and be legal two months afterward. What a year this is gonna be.
