Can a show be funny while talking about being funny? Absolutely, but for the most part, Sheldon wasn't doing it for me. Thankfully though, this episode had much more weight and another actually funny plot line to ensure it wasn't a complete write off. There is no science behind comedy.

For a show of this age and this magnitude to be this creative and this clever in its seventh season is a remarkable feat.
