5. I've looked at some other BillyBobNeck videos and it looks like he is doing SATIRE


... he is imitating how nutty redneck right-wingers act.

6. Billy Bob Neck (Paul Day) has fund raised for John Kerry


Billy Bob Neck has spent the better part of 25 years fighting to keep America American.

-snip-

In 2004, Paul Day got asked to take part in a comedy night to raise funds for John Kerry's presidential bid. Rather than be just another comic telling "Bush is stupid" jokes, he came up with the character of Billy Bob Neck, Billy Bob is bleeding edge satire on those in the Christian Conservative Movement who believe that "George Bush is the greatest president since Winston Churchill" and that President Obama wants to personally kill your grandmother.

11. Poe's Law at work

Poe's law, in broader form, is:

Without a blatant display of humor, it is impossible to create a parody of extremism or fundamentalism that someone won't mistake for the real thing.[2]


The core of Poe's law is that a parody of something extreme by nature becomes impossible to differentiate from sincere extremism. A corollary of Poe's law is the reverse phenomenon: sincere fundamentalist beliefs can be mistaken for a parody of those beliefs.[2]
