Jerky Boys – Getting Hurt at Work

Does anybody besides me remember the Jerky Boys from sometime around the late 1980s and 1990s? They made telephone calls to businesses and made up some story to get the kind of gut reaction that would result in, well . . . You can see for yourself on the video from youtube. Much of their stuff is so politically incorrect and in your face that it was certain to offend somebody! But there’s just something about reducing people to their most basic instincts so that the reactions are so pure and raw. . . a little akin I suppose to laughing controllably and certainly inappropriately after watching someone fall (which I do, but only AFTER I’m sure the only thing that’s hurt is their pride). This one, at a running time of a minute and 29 seconds is relatively tame, so if you’ve never heard of the Jerky Boys, here’s your chance. I’d be very interested in hearing what others think about this kind of humor.
