Not to be a sourpuss, but am I the only one who finds this not funny at all? I mean, this is not your average everyday teasing, but rather textbook "abusive dad"-style criticism. This guy is viciously demaning to people "under" him, provides no constructive feedback, and confuses a person's foibles at a *game* with their value as a person.The fact that we're viewing this as funny somehow is sad - this guy is just a sad dude who chooses to express himself in a really bitter and hateful way. The fact is that, in real life, this mode of relating is very often a prelude to serious violence. (And given the fact that he's chewing out his "subordinates," it reminds me most of violence perpatrated against kids. Happens a lot.)Applauding it just seems a bit immature to me.
