Can you imagine the movies and television shows of today making fun like this of businessmen?
Or cops? Or (lord forbid), service comedies that poke fun at our brave men and women in uniform?
It would never happen. And yet, these were common targets of lowbrow satire all through the 1950s and 60s.
Or how about rich people?
What a sick assortment of sacred cows we have in this unctuous, dried up, hypocritical, dishonest, and hard-sell culture of ours. How did it ever get this way?
