Humor Is Dead

Support for Raymond has dropped 17% in the past year alone, and as the chart indicates, four more years of Raymond could result in utter disdain for the television star.

Report: Support For Raymond Continues To Drop

1/21/04 - A new poll by Reuters/MSNBC/Zogby International indicates that more love has been lost for television star "Raymond" in the past year. The report's release follows weeks of dedicating all of their resources to determining what the citizens of Iowa think of the eight Democratic candidates on a daily basis.

Critics have gone as far as to suggest that CBS change the name of the show to "Nearly Everybody Loves Raymond", or "A Good Majority Love Raymond." Doing so, however, may be bad precedent, as projections show that 2005 could mean "About Half Love Raymond", while "We're All Pretty Much Sick of Raymond" could occur within 3 or 4 years.

"While you could say that everyone did love Raymond earlier in the show's run, his numbers in the last few years have seen an accelerated drop," said pollster Bernie O'McMilliGangaCutty. "I think he's OK, though."

But you can nearly smell the love turning sour among the backroads and small towns of America.

"Let me be perfectly clear," said Ed Fred of Courtney Corner, Indiana. "I know some people that kinda hate Raymond a bit. Daryl for one."

Everybody Loves Fudge, aka "E.L. Fudge", was unavailable for comment, as he is in Provincetown to marry his longtime elf-boyfriend Isaac Mark Packer, now to be known as I.M. Fudge-Packer.
