Now I'm not saying third rock from the sun was for everyone, but it came along at a perfect time in society, when it was still kind of ok to pull comedy from horrible situations. I almost feel like a gag like this put in a show today would get pulled for some ridiculous reason, even though it's clearly one of the funniest things EVER. It's so incredibly shocking to see the situation get ratcheted up so quickly, and it shouldn't matter who hit who, it should be about the comedy.
Here, I'll show you the exact same gag, but with dudes.
See? Still funny.
