Recently: Alex Sulkin, a staff writer at the popular adult-slanted cartoon Family Guy, was harshly called out for his insensitive, offensive attempt at making light of the earthquake and the subsequent tsunami that wreaked havoc, death, and destruction on Japan just yesterday.  Lesson: don’t make jokes in the “never too early” spirit of trying to be as controversial as possible just for the sake of being as controversial as possible, thinking the shock itself is what’s funny.  Make jokes because the accepted inconsistency or overlooked false assumption is legitimately funny.  Take a cue from Paul Provenza and his angle on 9/11.
