    Toilet Humor in Female Driven Comedies

    The famous diarrhea scene in Bridesmaids and the gratuitous vomiting in Pitch Perfect are an odd connection for the two biggest female driven comedies of the past ten years or possibly ever. Is toilet humor simply that funny or is it an attempt to appeal to the more stereotypically vulgar male crowd?

    • I don't think it is just female driven comedies that rely on toilet humor. I would say almost all comedies have toilet humor, as well as just gross-out humor. – Aaron Hatch 5 years ago

    • I think in the past, toilet humor was more associated with men and male comedians (maybe it was considered "unladylike), but toilet humor can be funny no matter what your gender is. – S.A. Takacs 5 years ago

    I personally find Sheldon’s characterization callous. The fact that the writers never acknowledge Sheldon’s condition is worth noting. Several jokes backed with with endless audience laughter are made at the expense of Sheldon’s habits. It reads as cruel to me and I don’t know that they would be able to write the show as they do had they ever acknowledged that they (perhaps unknowingly) wrote an autistic character. Does the audience love Sheldon or love to laugh at Sheldon and is this affecting how watchers of the show react to cases of Aspergers in real life?

    I love the creative freedom given to the shows of netflix and more recently amazon. Without censors to please, the possibilities seem endless.

    I grew up loving the game on N-64 and Game Cube but I fear that less is more when it comes to the “Brawl” version. Sensory overload in my opinion.
