Nobody laughed at my The Aristocrats
Seriously, is there anyone on this forum who has heard of it?
Yes, I have. Yours just wasn't a particularly funny joke. (Then again, neither is the original).
Yes, but comparing the death, destruction, and dirty business around the world TO The Aristocrats
was funny, I thought.
I was inspired by a sequence at the start of episode 3 of Hellsing Ultimate Abridged
, where a defeated Alucard is being berated by van Helsing about the atrocities he has committed.
Sir Hellsing: Vampire King... You lay upon the blood soaked dirt of your ruined land, castles plundered, dominions in ruin, servants destroyed, all to end the hellfire with which you sought to cover the world. A bloody conquest having consumed hundreds of thousands, countless villages razed to the ground, and over twenty thousand impaled and prostrated by you and you alone, to strike horror into the hearts of mortal men! WHAT SAY YOU!? MONSTER! DEMON! DEVIL CONCEIVED BY THE BLEAKEST WOMB! WHAT SAY YOU NOW!?
Alucard (half-dead): .....The Aristocrats.
Four minutes? That's ages! What if I get bored? I need a television, a couple of books. Anyone for chess? Bring me knitting.
