without comment and without explanation.

is the picture recent? if so, when and where was it taken?

Sixth Sense was a great movie, the first time. Like most all of M. Night Shyamalan's movies, you can't really watch it again.

It doesn't need an explanation if you're smart enough to get the joke. It wouldn't be a joke it it were explained.

It's only funny if the people in the picture are dead. without knowing when and where the picture was taken, you don't know for sure.

Won't ever be funny to Trumpsters. They won't get it. They don't get it in the first place…

That's because they only listen to Orange Dump, and Orange Dump says that young people are practically immune, don'tcha know?

Good grief, you are being too literal. The beach party stands in for any recent beach party, and the implication is that they will soon be visible only to the kid who sees dead people.

As a humor writer, you are always faced with the question of whether you wrote it wrong or if your audience was too dumb to get it.
It's one of the hazards.

I feel like a more effective use of the Sixth Sense frame would be on that shot of the hallway in Georgia with the kids back in high school, (mostly) not wearing masks and obviously not socially distancing. True, many of them might not die, but ... the ones who do, it sure as heck won't be pretty. I know that's probably morbid and grotesque of me to say, but it seems that's the only thing that'll get through to some people at this point.

Wow, it was such a simple, even simplistic, and obvious joke. I can't believe the discussion being held about it.

Next, let's deep-dive into a knock-knock joke to determine its merit.

This made me laugh, well done Dennis. And I love that movie (yes it is fun to watch again because then you see how they pulled it off...)

1) easy to scan.limited number of factors in photo. Pleasure in recognizing clear topical joke
2) widely known gag, no specialized knowledge of a non-iconic scene from one particular movie
3) so maybe it was the writing, not the audience

Why not use the mask they had in one of the episodes?
