The Appeal of Jackass Baffles CC

While it's amazing that anyone would actually subject themselves willingly to such stupidity on camera, Cinecultist doesn't really "get" the appeal of Johnny Knoxville and Jackass Number Two, which hits theaters this weekend.

CC didn't see the first one or watch the TV show, so maybe a faithful reader can let us know. There's no plot or story right? Just guys stapling stuff to their nether regions? Why is that funny? Seriously, we want to understand.

Umm, hello! Ball-kicking is hilarious. As Mel Brooks said, "Tragedy is when I cut my finger. Comedy is when you walk into an open sewer and die."
