    it was the shock value, the clearly stereotypic vulgarity of a send up of our "culture", that made it so funny. We all know people that are like the Bundy's in some form; the tramp, the geek, the loser and the cougar. The extreme examples that they posed were very similar to some comic routines on stage in that they were amusing not so much for their content per se, as for the embarrassment that the admission such people existed created.

    I thought it was art myself, much like Futurama or the Simpsons, and for the same reasons.
