Comedy is the most effective way to skewer idiocy. Alternative Math depicts a nightmarish student who refuses to accept that 2+2=4. And since Little Johnny must always be right, the teacher’s confrontation with him gets escalated to the school board, with calamitous consequences. It’s terribly unfair, exaggerated all out of proportion … and very funny.
