Michael Moore: 1, Fat, 2 Not Funny, 3 Fat In a Way That's Not Funny

Michael Moore and MoveOn.org have teamed up to produce a hideously acted wannabe-viral ad.

I've never gotten this conceit that Michael Moore is funny. Clapper humor, as usual.

Here he parades out a bunch of old people to say naughty things, including the f-word, making broad threats about civil violence if Romney is elected. (But it's humor, so they're not really threatening this! Wink.)

The writing is atrocious, as usual for Michael Moore.

Hey, do you remember when Betty White first started using all sorts of curses and sexual language in the 2005 film Lake Placid? Michael Moore does. He thinks it's still funny and fresh. Most people got over this by the time the "Betty White says dirty things" schtick entered its fourth year, which itself was... three years ago.

Not Michael Moore, though. He still thinks there's juice in this lemon.

Do you remember when "cockpunch" was the hot meme on the internet, 'round 2007? Michael Moore does. And he still thinks it's just a hoot. Pro-tip: When an internet meme has actually been used in a lame Hollywood comedy (in What Happens in Vegas), it's probably a good sign the meme is officially played.

And that movie came out in 2008. Three years ago, it the cockpunch meme was already well-known enough, and therefore tame enough, to be used in a fluffy romcom starring Ashton Kutcher and Cameron Diaz. And as it was an inoffensive lightweight little non-com they bowlderized the meme to "junkpunch."

So, here's Michael Moore doing what he does best: Offering bad jokes for a leftist audience which applauds him for being "daring" and "so funny."

Practitioner of cutting edge humor. Like this fresh gem:

Take my insulin level, please.
