Workaholics Made an Amazing Hatchet Joke

Workaholics isn't the most sophisticated comedy out there. But few shows are able to relish in their immaturity with the commitment and crazy-eyed delight Workaholics seems to traffic in. It's raunchy and sometimes dumb and often tasteless, but it's joyously those things.

(No offense, The Giver.)
