Hmmmm. I, for one, laughed. I thought it was funny. I really think we might be over analyzing this whole hide and seek thing. (Really? Say it ain't so, Maji!)
Comics poke fun at themselves and others daily. If you were to sit down and pick things apart with every joke, looking for the action behind it, the thought that went into it, the result of what came out of it....etc, well, you'd have no damned time to laugh.
Comedy is SUBJECTIVE. What is funny to one person is not funny to another. Really, that is all that needs to be said about this subject.
Don't spend too much time looking at the details. Enjoy the joke or don't.
