Incompatible is one of those “truth in comedy” ideas that I know from experience. The terrible thing is that I’ve been on both sides of the statement from the second panel. I’m not proud to say that I’ve been both the cheater and the cheated, and both are equally terrible for different reasons. For what it’s worth, they have both made me feel like shit. Neither of those feelings were fun at all.
I used to say that I lived through the most painful and horribly unfunny episode of “Three’s Company” that lasted a few months instead of 22 minutes.
