Avery's Foundation For The Tragically Unfunny
The mission of Avery's Ant Farm is focused on a singular goal -
to help deluded, would-be comedians come to terms with their comic
ineptitude and basic lameness. Central to the Foundation's core
principles is the ability to help convince comedically challenged
jokesters that it's time to stop: stop performing at open mic nights;
stop telling fart jokes at dinner parties; stop the unfunny madness,
get back to their jobs in Accounts Receivable and leave comedy to
The Foundation fulfills this mission in a variety of ways, and is
designed to benefit everyone who has ever found himself or herself
trapped in the corner at a social event and is forced to listen
to the stale punch lines of a joke-spewing meathead. The program
concept is simple. Talentless bores, aka "guests," enjoy
a six-week stay at Avery's Resort in the Appalachian Mountains.
They are denied sleep, food, and water while the Program's Comedy
Gestapo reinforces positive messages such as "You are not funny,"
and "Your material is not comic gold!"
Avery's Ant Farm and Foundation also contains intense "reality
rubber rooms" for diehards having trouble facing the truth
about their utter lack of comic ability. These rooms are designed
so that hacks, punsters, and "knock-knock joke" aficionados
are denied bathing privileges in order that they may achieve an
understanding of just how much they stink. Each room has hillbilly
elevator Musak piped in at ear-piercing levels in order to drown
out their screams as they undergo a series of experimental drug
tests that may or may not help them focus on their problems. And
best of all, these loud-mouthed schnooks are kept away from the
rest of a grateful world.
Avery's Ant Farm scoffs at the gentle and holistic approach used
by such recovery programs as Comedians Anonymous, believing that
the harsh truth and hourly doses of cod liver oil are the best medicine
for these misguided joke slingers. Mr. Ant personally feels that
while the general public believes his concept of simply castrating
them is extreme and inhumane, he also notes that it happens to bulls
