Jim Carrey - Funny or Die? You decide.

The website funnyordie.com hosts videos that are sometimes funny, and sometimes die. You can actually vote "Funny" or "Die." I just voted on Jim Carrey's new video in which he lampoons gun owners as ignorant hillbillies.

Not the least bit amusing

I could laugh at his anti-gun video...if it was in the least bit amusing. It was just odd and ham fisted with the political propaganda. I didn't think it was funny at all. Quite lame.

We all want progress, but if you're on the wrong road, progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road; in that case, the man who turns back soonest is the most progressive.

-C. S. Lewis

I'm a little torn

It was amusing at times (because I used to watch Hee Haw when I was very young). But, I voted Die - it was a little over the top with the message and stereotypes.

However, I wouldn't say Carrey is not intelligent or sincere. He is out front on the anti-vaccine/autism issue. He is just misguided on the "gun issue", but so is 50% of the population.

"In the beginning of a change the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot."--Mark Twain

Politics aside...

It's just plain not funny, like the most of the content 'Funny or Die' makes.

But, by referring people to the website, you just are giving them exactly what they wanted, hits and ad revenue from the controversy they tried to stir up with the video.

I've watched the video about 4 times now

Anyone else find it kind of hypnotic? It's all a surreal scene...John Lennon, Ghandi, Abe Lincoln. The timbre of his voice, his movements, the edits....his eyes. And then after he's woozes you in, he drops the fear bomb at the end.

I voted DIE

That video is about as funny as Jim Carrey is intelligent.

It would be far more entertaining to see Jim Carrey getting mugged by home invaders while he feverishly dials 911.

I don't have to always agree

I don't have to always agree with a comic's politics, but I can still find them hilarious or admire their talents.

That wasn't funny at all.

That wasn't funny at all.

I greatly disagree with Jim

But I thought the video was quite hilarious.
