why is crude so funny dude?

And I have no answer for that question? Here is my question, why is it that our culture no longer laughs at clean jokes? Why do we only laugh at jokes that have sexual innuendos, foul language, and crude words? For example. I recently saw a trailer for a movie(and i still want to see it) featuring Robin Williams and John Travolta called Old Dogs. It's a comedy rated PG, so its a pretty clean, family funny movie. I looked up the reviews for this movie from the so-called 'experts', and I was astonished at what they said. Some said it was boring, others called it just not funny, in fact, one review said it was the kind of movie "you take you dumb relatives to".
On the other hand, perhaps you've heard of the movie, Its Complicated starring Alec Baldwin and Meryl Streep. Now this movie was a comedy, but rated R.The critics LOVED it, thought it was great. Now why is that? Have clean jokers like Bill Cosby given way to crude and foul comedians like Cris Rock. Why is that one cannot listen to a standup comic for five minutes without having the f-bomb thrown at you every other word?Why?Why?Why?......idk......

I've wondered that for a while. I just don't know. I might think about it a little more and do a blog post on it myself, though...hmm... :)

I find most comedies to be stupid either way... Maybe all the critics are pervs? PEER PRESSURE. xD And I was being halfway serious there. People love what the critics do.. I haven't seen either movie, so I don't know what ta tell you.

I don't have a general preference... I've found both clean and innuendo style jokes funny (but as far as perversion goes, sometimes too much is too much. >.<). But when people try too hard, it flops. And it seems to be harder to tell a clean joke than a perverted or rude? Such corrupted minds we have. :/

Personally, I love nonsensical bizarre humour that nobody understands.
