Mock The Dummy
"Release the birth certificate!
— Pretty much every MTD episode ever.

Mock The Dummy is a YouTube show that parodizes conservative/right wing politics and pundits with dummies.


Tropes that appear in Mock The Dummy:

  • Acting for Two: The creator seems to have a limited supply of dummies and reuses the same dummy for a myriad of different characters. Also, they're also voiced by the same person.
  • Catch Phrase: Oh, so many...
    • "Release the birth certificate!" and "Validate the birth certificate!"
    • "YIPPEE!"/"AAAAAAAAHHHHH!"
    • "RIGHT!"
  • Caught Up in the Rapture: In "When Dummies Get Called Home."
  • Cure Your Gays: Invoked in "How Dummies Sell Their Boehner." Marcus Bachmann Dummy: "I just want to watch Boner." Michelle Bachmann Dummy: "MARCUS! Pray it AWAY!"
  • Demonic Dummy: Though not in the usual sense, since every character is a dummy. A video that parodies The Ring has a Samara!Michelle Bachmann!dummy.
  • Double Entendre: They're especially fond of this whenever they do something involving John Boehner.
  • Drunk with Power: Sometimes literally.
  • The Fundamentalist: Of the Christian variety.
  • Moral Myopia: Parodied, of course.
  • Older Than They Think: Invoked in "Why Dummies Want to Forget the Tea Party Ancestry" by parodying various groups who made the more or less the same complaints that right-wingers make today, and all eventually lost out.
  • Only Sane Dummy: The newscaster, quite often.
  • Orwellian Editor: "Texas, please re-write the Tea Party history soon. I mean, let's face it: it makes us look like... dummies."
  • Running Gag: "...Boner." "Bayner!"
  • Some of My Best Friends Are X: "I have a great relationship with the blacks!"
  • Strawman Political: As a parody of right-wing politics... obviously.
  • Transparent Closet: Politicians who are known for "deviant" behavior in real life.
  • You Can Panic Now: "AAAAAAAAAAHHHHHH!"
