    The Babylon Bee isn’t even remotely funny

    For those that don’t know, the Babylon Bee is some kind of awkward attempt to make a right wing/Christian version of The Onion (which is politically neutral). The problem is that they don’t have good writers or even seem to understand the basic premise of comedy.

    Each attempt at humor relies on the reader already sharing their views and know every talking point spewed by Fox News/OAN/Newsmax, which ends up making for failed satire. It’s on par with those awful Reference Movies (“Superhero Movie”, “InAPPropriate Comedy”, etc) that string together stale jokes or bits from other, better movies and hope the audience laughs at the same thing they saw months earlier.

    And of course, the Babylon Bee just feeds into the stereotype of there being no right wing comedians/sense of humor.
