benzado replied to your post: top ten things i found on a years-old list of sketch ideas that do not make sense and that i do not remember writing and that leave me bewildered as to why i thought they were funny or worth writing down
Look up Gödel’s incompleteness theorem. He sort of disproved math, for people who believed math was about proving everything.
As usual, whenever I think I’ve come up with a funny premise for a sketch, it turns out Gödel did it first.

“They say stupid things, but they are not selling stupid. They are selling hate, envy, greed. Most of all, they are selling that sin of thinking oneself holier than others, and judging others to make one feel good about oneself. It is the opposite of love thy neighbor as thyself — Hate thy neighbor to make yourself feel noble. The very religion they claim to value ranks this as one of the greatest sins. That is what they sell. And yes, it ends up sounding stupid, but sells anyway.” —Mark Thomason, Clawson, MI, Reader Comment on The Crackpot Caucus - NYTimes.com
