Trump Joke Scholarship

Andy Baio at Waxy.org takes a fascinating look at the seeming endless variations of the "Donald Trump is basically a YouTube comment section running for president" circulating around the Internet, and he manages to track it as far back as a post made in 2011.


Andy may have inadvertently created a new area of academic research for extending the existing literature exploring the evolutionary origins of humor. I'll betcha there's some National Endowment for the Arts grant money out there just waiting for somebody to claim it.
