Aztec god of Failed Humour

Ancient pictograms are uncovered in the jungle depicting a winged ocelot in various poses and conditions.

Academics of every university clamour for the meaning of these mysterious glyphs.

In the series of images the winged ocelot features centrally, surrounded by unhappy faces, these are then circled by differing sets of situational glyphs.

In one, some sexual innuendo is being accidentally communicated to the King's wife through the medium of a comb of corn.

In another, a high priest is mistaken for a valet or servant of some description.

Each in the series shares some thread of social embarrassment and after painstaking research, it is announced in a studied paper, that these images are the earliest evidence of the emergence of the sitcom in pre-history.

Actually, what you were seeing was an ancient fashion show, where the judges see the models as food, and get to eat the winner in the end.
