    That said, I'll give credit to Harold & Kumar, because as far as I can tell much of the point of the movie was to make fun of how banally evil the United States government had become -- a country where abuse and mistreatment and injustice are just what you expect, and the only thing which helps is knowing powerful people.

    The scenes there are clearly supposed to shock you with the sheer awfulness of the government, and it's only "funny" in a "have to laugh in order to avoid crying" way.

    Law and Order, SNL, etc., have absolutely NO excuse.

    -5.63, -8.10. Learn about Duverger's Law.
