Roganpoem: A Sardonic Ode to Show Three hosts with sardonic wit, Their jokes hit hard, and never quit, Their humor's dark, their banter slick, Time for the Show, a satirical hit. Segment One: You Hit My Recap The hosts provide a short recap of what they've been up to since the last episode Segment Two: Peas-O Box Send your viewer mail to email@example.com 1) Dear Time for the Show hosts,
I’m writing to express my frustration with your constant attempts at being “edgy”. Let me tell you, being edgy doesn’t equal being funny! You guys need to understand that you can be hilarious without resorting to saying controversial or offensive things. It’s just lazy comedy!
I mean, I don’t want to sound like a stick in the mud, but it seems like you guys are trying too hard to be provocative. It’s not edgy, it’s just annoying. Your jokes are like a dentist’s drill; they just keep grinding and grinding, and I’m left feeling like I need a root canal.
Please, for the love of all that is holy, try a new approach. I want to laugh, not cringe.
Sincerely, Chuckleford Fizzlesnort of Flapjack Junction, Idaho
2) Dear Doktor Faux, Reverand Peas, and Fidd Chewley,
I hope this letter finds you well, although I doubt that it will. You see, I have a topic that I would love to hear you make jokes about, but I’m afraid it’s one that’s a bit too taboo for your show. I know you guys are edgy and love pushing the boundaries of what’s acceptable, but I’m not sure even you can handle this one.
The topic I’m referring to is taxes. Yes, taxes. I know, I know, it’s not exactly the most exciting or humorous topic out there. But I challenge you to find the humor in the IRS and the mind-numbing process of filing taxes. Can you make jokes about itemized deductions? Can you make the audience laugh with your witty takes on the tax code?
I eagerly await your attempt at humor on this seemingly mundane topic. Who knows, maybe you’ll even convince me that taxes can be funny.
Sincerely, Bud Lightyear Residing in Beer City, USA
Segment Three: Culture Schlock
Discuss the hosts’ commentary on various aspects of popular culture, including music, film, television, and social media. This week’s topic is Dilbert creator Scott Adams.
“Scott Adams called Black Americans a “hate group” and suggested white Americans “get the hell away from Black people” in response to a conservative organization’s poll purporting to show that many African Americans do not think it’s OK to be white.
“If nearly half of all Blacks are not OK with white people … that’s a hate group,” Adams said on his YouTube channel on Wednesday. “And I don’t want to have anything to do with them.”
His once-popular comic strip, which lampoons corporate culture and was launched in 1989, will no longer be carried by the Los Angeles Times, the Washington Post, the USA Today-affiliated group of newspapers and others, the newspapers announced in statements on Friday and Saturday.”

SOUND EFFECT: Phone hangs up
ANNOUNCER: And there you have it, folks. The PointlessBox. Order now and receive a second box for twice the nothing.
Segment Five: Influenzacers
Ask the hosts about people in the public eye. Suggestions include: Elon Musk, who recently stated in replies to tweets about the Scott Adams controversy, that the media that is “racist against whites & Asians.” Woody Harrelson, Harrelson said in his SNL monologue that the script was about politicians and the media forcing people to stay locked down in their homes and not come out of their houses unless they were to take daily drugs from drug cartels. The actor then admitted that he “threw the script away” because he thought nobody would believe the idea of enforced drug consumption. “Who is going to believe that crazy idea?” he asked, before stating “I do that [doing drugs] voluntarily all day long.” Media outlets are now saying that Harrelson is spewing disinformation, and recalling prior comments where the movie star shared his views that he did not believe in the efficiency of the mask mandate, calling it absurd and that he had not contracted the virus because he was “internally clean”. In a now-deleted Instagram post, Harrelson also seemed to support a conspiracy theory that 5G cellular service could spread coronavirus and exacerbate the contagion.
