Why'd you have resort to Tom "Carnivale Critique" Preston of all people?

For what it's worth, I think you could make a case for the psychology of "spending hours in the library" versus "spending hours playing a video game" being different cases. Is that line recent? I don't remember it.

The first page quote ("There's so much comedy on television. Does that cause comedy in the streets?") is rather ironic when you consider that there really is comedy in the streets; Improv Everywhere comes to mind.

Perhaps then the "comedy in the streets" part should link to a trope related to this; for me, "analogy backfire" is what came to mind.
