As a career teacher, I never found anything about B&B funny, or any blatant stupidity.  I saw enough of it in everyday at work. 
But I have to say, your choices for "favorite" movie lines are... revealing.

I can admit that under the age of ten I might have found some of the above movie lines amusing, thus the term "juvenile" humor. Once one reaches the teenage years and adulthood, bathroom humor just doesn't do it anymore for most people. A good laugh requires something clever, something absurd, something that you didn't see coming. Sadly, the dumbing down of America is alive and well.

Knowing you are a teacher, I know two things:
1. I feel bad for you guys having to deal with other people's dumb kids that are not raised right.
2. I also know that (especially in modern times) you teachers (and administrators) are evil, disgusting trash.

I grew up on old school cartoons:
1. Daffy getting is bill shot in all kinds of ways
2. Blowing everything up with the old school plunger box
3. Wile E. falling of a cliff a dozen times an episode

I never did anything wrong nor committed a crime. I never shot a duck just to see the bill spin around the head and make a funny noise.

I watched generations of wrestling:
1. "Baby Doll" (woman) getting slapped by bad guys and good guys
2. "Baby Doll" getting a forced kiss and her top almost ripped off
3. "Jim" (manager) hitting everybody with a tennis racket, including "Baby Doll"
4. "Dusty" getting his leg broken and breaking someone else's leg as revenge
5. "Sandman" walking to the ring smoking a cigarette, drinking a beer, and hitting everybody with a big stick
6. "DX" going to the ring, doing a crotch chop and all saying "suck it" as their catch phrase
7. "DX" bit on their "two newest members" where they were joking on "China's" breast augmentation
8. "Stone Cold" drinking bear and giving the middle finger to the boss
9. "The Rock" always wanting to stick things up other people's butts
10. "The Rock" calling women sluts, especially the bosses daughter
11. "Val" (man) going to the ring and talking with the porn metaphors
12. "Dudley Boys" power bombing various women through tables (including an elderly ex female wrestler, and a mature non-wrestler authority figure)

I never did anything wrong nor committed a crime. I don't drink beer. I don't smoke. I might give the middle finger to my boss one day. Some people are overdue for a bash on the head. I will judge "The Rock" on what he does now, not the stupid stuff from the 90s/00's

I have watched Beavis and Butthead:
1. I never hit a frog with a baseball bat

I never did anything wrong nor committed a crime. I am judgemental on music videos, TV shows, and movies (especially modern stuff), but not because of them two.

A big problem with society (especially modern times):
1. Nobody is parenting.  People are having kids, but they are not raising their children. The so called adults are just as bad or worse that the kids.
2. Nobody has any morals. Nobody has any morality.
3. Social media has fast tracked in the dumbing down of society, as well as the corruption of society. It's enabling actual criminal behavior and crime.
4. Entertainment has fast tracked in the dumbing down of society, as well as the corruption of society. I grew up on Atari Pac-Man (I don't eat pills but I have ran around dark rooms listening to repetitive music). There is no way you can say that "Call Of Duty" doesn't have any effect on people (where, the goal is to shoot and kill people). Don't blame Beavis and Butthead for stupid crap that people know is stupid. Blame these disgusting horror movies (where, the goal of the evil is to kill people).
4. We are not tough on crime, punishment, and rehabilitation. I get mad when someone commits murder or rape, and is not given the death penalty. Get rid of them (and not this decades on death row crap). I don't care if their age is 8 or 80 . Rehabilitate the person who is not evil.

Again, I never did anything wrong nor committed a crime because of Beavis and Butthead. In fact, they have introduced me to music. Their commentary sometimes made the music bearable.

So your argument is that your exposure to violence in media back in the day was just fine but kids being exposed to trends on social media today is terrible?  That's .... not very consistent.  One might even call it hypocritical.

My point was that with the actual stuff I/we grew up on, I'm not this bad person because you think B&B is dumb. I don't care if somebody is not a fan of them. I have no problem with that. Just don't come here and crap up a perfectly good thread with insults to people. Those who live in glass houses...

Am I a fan every music or movie or TV show or car or food or whatever in these threads? No. The WHOLE point of these threads is to have fun as an AC society. That's what at least I try to do.

Social media is bad for society. If it went away, it would be a great start to getting back to normal. Things like TikTok are addictive, actually harmful to people, and enables harmful behavior from people.

That is the exact same thing I heard growing up.  Except it was about television.  And how TV would rot your brain and make all society dumber.

Things are different nowadays: it used to be a "2 Live Crew" album that was supposedly so vulgar that they had two different versions of it. The same people that had adult only concerts.

Now you have these literal prostitutes rapping about their soiled vaginas on mainstream radio.

Things aren’t different.  You’re just old. 

To be fair, so am I!

But as I age, I try not to become a scold like my father was.

It has nothing to do with age. It has to do with morality. Not having a line that shouldn't be crossed.

"Baby Got Back" was a song about real women and not skinny models.. The modern song that sampled it rapped about men's penises on mainstream radio.

Humor is something that tickles the brain, and every brain is different. 

Regardless, crude humor is a basic staple of every culture.  {Do they even teach the more ribald "Canterbury Tales" anymore?}
I'm just more Marx Bros. than Dumb, Dumber, and More Dumber. 
And the humor of mispronouncing "Socrates" as "So Crates" is a variation of Samuel Clemens "Innocents Abroad".  American mocking of the aristocratic or the educated has been around for centuries, and has even found a home in our current political discourse. 
So If your favorite lines are a variation of Homer's "Duhhhh", Mel Brooks' characters farting around the campfire.... or in my case, Cleavon Little singing "I Get no Kick from Champaigne"................   it's all good.

48 Hours

Reggie: This ain't no god damn way to start a partnership.
Jack: Now, get this! We ain't partners. We ain't brothers. And we ain't friends. I'm puttin' you down and keepin' you down until Ganz is locked up or dead. And if Ganz gets away, you're gonna be sorry YOU ever MET me!
[beat]
Reggie: I'm already sorry.

Man, I think you were just listening to the wrong music back in the day.  I grew up in Gen X and we had a pretty hardcore nihilism running through all the alt-music at the time.  Nothing I see today is any darker or bleaker than stuff my friends and I listened to on the daily.  Maybe you were just sheltered.  Or maybe not very musically adventurous.

Musically adventurous? Just because something exists, I doesn't mean that it needs or should be listened or watched.

It's like that NPR thread: I could/couldn't care less on what some jerk likes on NPR, nor am I going to waste my time to find out what they are. I don't have the time, patience, nor money to do so.

You're entire argument reminds me of one of my favorite movie lines (to bring this thread back on topic):

The Dude - "That's just, like, your opinion, man."  The Big Lebowski.

Fuzz (1972)

Jack Weston is playing pool in a tough pool hall with an unfriendly local.

Local - "Are you a hustler?"
JW - "No."
Local - We break hustlers' arms and throw them down the stairs."
JW - "Just the arms or the whole hustler?"

I appeciate those who are willing to be smart asses even when it will likely get them thrown down the stairs.
