    It's a bit of a simplification, isn't it? ;)

    What even is "Sloke"?

    But this is the humour thread - can't expect much accuracy from the posts here.

    After thoroughly researching the issue for many months, I have reached an inescapable conclusion: it's meaningless. Completely meaningless!

    Since Louis CK is in the news, here's a gem I found on the Twitter:

    Pretty fucked-up, though. A "serene fanatic" - someone who discarded her individuality and committed completely to serving her god.

    Whereas Louis C.K. is just a decent guy doing what naturally suits his body.

    She asked "are you happy now" when she just got done making him sad, and the video treats that as a decisive argument?

    This was supposed to be funny?

    Louis C.K. Is Accused by 5 Women of Sexual Misconduct

    Louis C.K. Is Accused by 5 Women of Sexual Misconduct | https://www.nytimes.com/2017/11/09/arts/television/louis-ck-sexual-misconduct.html?smid=tw-nytimesarts&smtyp=cur

    "As soon as they sat down in his room, still wrapped in their winter jackets and hats, Louis C.K. asked if he could take out his penis, the women said.

    They thought it was a joke and laughed it off. “And then he really did it,” Ms. Goodman said in an interview with The New York Times. “He proceeded to take all of his clothes off, and get completely naked, and started masturbating.”"

    More than one story, more than one person:

    "During Ms. Goodman and Ms. Wolov’s surreal visit to Louis C.K.’s Aspen hotel room, they said they were holding onto each other, screaming and laughing in shock, as Louis C.K. masturbated in a chair. “We were paralyzed,” Ms. Goodman said. After he ejaculated on his stomach, they said, they fled. He called after them: “He was like, ‘Which one is Dana and which one is Julia?’” Ms. Goodman recalled."

    I think that lady doesn't exist as presented. The doe-eyed cheerleader peppy pep thing is amazing, and also nobody that innocent would be debating Louis C.K. on Fox. Would bang, would not believe.

    EDIT: Liz Holtan plays Ellen Farber in an episode of Louie. Had me going for a while there!

    Brilliand, I thought the video was real until I looked it up just now.

    This kind of thing, this reaction to an event that turns out to be fiction... It's a mirror that reveals the self. I like our different reactions to the video, and the perceptions of what it was about.

    One of the definitions of comedy is "tragedy without sympathy". I was laughing because the news of Louis CK being a sex pervert that has been Weinsteining on female comedians for years made it hard to feel sorry for the guy.

    Poe's Law, also.

    Defining comedy as "tragedy without sympathy" doesn't make much sense to me. Watching someone I dislike suffer might be gratifying, but not funny. I had no prior exposure to news about Louis CK, though, and now now that I've heard it from you... it sounds like the kind of idiotic news story I'm better off ignoring, actually.

    It sounds like you also knew that she was LARPing. You just didn't know why. (I didn't know why either.)

    It looked like a Fox News segment at first. Figured the cheerleader thing was an act, looked up the names and found out the whole thing was fiction. The video could have been real (as in "unscripted" interview on cable TV) even if the people were fake.

    Sometimes a headline and picture is sufficient.
