: call someone a sellout, and just by including that phrase, that makes it all better?
No, that's the part that makes sure that everybody reading who hasn't yet realized, based on the sheer ridiculousness of the post, that it was a joke can know for sure.
: There has to be some justification for the attack.
'Attack'? Jeez, mellow out. It's not like he jumped Kevin from behind some bushes or something.
: Even for it to be a joke, humor always has some basis in reality.
No, it doesn't. For instance, chickens don't cross roads, and certainly not for such pedestrian reasons as 'getting to the other side'.
: This is just a mean backstabbing thing to do when embittered about someone else's success.
No, 'mean' and 'bitter' are both motivations for attacks, sure, but not jokes.
Just because you don't think something is funny doesn't make it not a joke.
