Things You Used to Think Were Funny but Don't Now

Here are three of my examples

1: Some of the old National Lampoon. I have .pdfs from a now dead site that had the 'Poon back in the '70's when it was funny. Some of it, the comics, Bruce McCall's parodies and more are still funny. But did I ever think Mrs. Agnew's Diary, Mr. Chatterbox, My Meter is Running, and more were funny? Apparently I did, but not now.

2: P.J. O'Rourke's "Parliament of Whores". when I bought it, back in the '80's I thought it was a hoot. Now I think it's just spoiled brat smartassery.

3: Sol Weinstein's "Loxfinger" a James Bond parody about Secret Agent Israel Bond, Agent Oy-Oy Seven. I roared 40 years ago when I read it. Now I think it's just a succession of bad Jew Jokes. He was capable of better, Jonathan Segal Chicken, Everything You Never Wanted to Know about Sex but I'll Tell You Anyway.

Does anybody else have anything like that?
