Well, today’s episode is quite “meta.” Dinkle here is advising people–and there’s no sugarcoating this–to be colossal dicks. His advice is downright mean–much nastier than just grabbing food and leaving. What a truly rotten human being. Again, the eternal question: this is supposed to be funny? That person in the front row sure seems to find it amusing.
I bet when he dines out, Dinkle pretends to calculate a tip for several minutes before leaving nothing. While smirking to himself over his cleverness.
No surprise with any of that, but what’s curious is that Dinkle is apparently chairing a seminar of how to behave at a convention…during the same convention. I have never heard of such a thing, and can’t imagine any use for it. It’s not like an orientation thing–“Welcome to the convention, here’s what to expect, here’s the schedule of events, here’s where the bathrooms are.”
No, this seems to be specifically how to be a colossal dick. So…I guess they got the right guy to run this one!
