Laconic Everyone Is an Acceptable Target

Launchin in 1 hour from now

Some authors like to play favorites making one side look good one, while making fun of the side they dont sympathise with.

Not in this show. In this kind of show, there is no such thing as an acceptable target. They either mock all sides of an argument or none.

This trope is never played completely straight all the time due to the fact that Most Writers Are Human and all humans are biased (at least unconsciously).

This trope applies when a show doesn't have bias for any side in a given situation.However it can be used inside the story,too. When a character is particulary offensive to everybody.

Examples

  • Frankie Boyle will attack anyone and everyone.
  • Mongrels was very free about who it set out to offend.
