#3. Studio Audience on America' Funniest Home Videos
Symptoms: What the fuck about people falling down, and Bob Saggot doing high pitched baby and cat voices is so goddamn funny? While the laughter that they play over the various clips of Americans getting hit in the nuts is always insanely loud, the ultimate treat comes when they actually show the assholes in the studio, writhing around, barely hanging on to their last strand of sanity.
In this clip, everyone screams with laughter when a Porta John falls over, and then their goddamn heads practically explode when it' revealed that (gasp) there's actually a construction worker in the Porta John. What'd they think they were going to see?
But the real joy of this clip comes in the last two seconds, when the camera cuts back to audience member Johnny Rico, dressed up in a suit for his big day at America's Funniest Home Videos, and nearly having an epileptic seizure. If they weren't pumping that place full of drugs like it was Studio 54, we have lost our faith in man' capacity for survival.
Drug(s) They Were Probably On: Some sort of laughing gas/cocaine mixture
