"You're not supposed to find it funny"

A quote I couldn't pass up from Aaron Sorkin in wire story on the presumed-late, not-so-great "Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip":

“I want to make it clear,” Sorkin says of his drama, “you’re not supposed to be finding it funny."

UPDATE: Oh, the irony. If last night was the final "Studio 60," it went out with... not a bang, certainly, but at least a couple laughs. The romance stuff between Matt and Harriet still stunk, but there was a predictable, but funny, bit with a baby doll and a guillotine and Simon confessing to sleeping with the wrong writer was kinda funny and there were a few other things that merited a chuckle.

I mean, it was no "Two and a Half Men," but for Aaron Sorkin, this was a laugh riot. And now it's over. Which is funny too, come to think of it.
