I'm not sure how that is funny, but I suppose everyone has a different sense of humor.
You, yourself, may not have a use for HDMI 2.1 now, but there are, in fact, people who are taking advantage HDMI 2.1 features right now. Gamers, of course, are currently using VRR (LG OLED TVs with Gsync over HDMI) and ALLM. Gamers and non-gamers alike also benefit from eARC support when connecting devices directly to their TV or when using their TV internal apps and want high definition audio. A PC or gaming system would also not be able to take advantage of VRR or ALLM when connected to a receiver directly, so the system must be directly connected to the TV. Another reason eARC is needed.
Granted, Sony TVs now feature eARC support, but it would definitely be nice if Sony stepped their game up and delivered VRR, ALLM, higher resolutions, frame rates, and any other HDMI 2.1 features on TVs that could support it.
I don't think it's funny at all if someone wants to make a big purchase, like a TV, and would like to have certain features supported sooner rather than later. They like getting a better value for their money and also not having to think about buying another TV quicker than needs be. But, hey, feel free to laugh it up and make excuses for Sony, at the consumer's expense, if you find it that humorous.
I love Sony TVs, mind you, but it really looks like the majority of TVs they put out this year are just rebadged versions of last year's TVs, even down to the processor. That's pretty sad.
I have a 75" X950G but I'm definitely looking forward to an X950 with full HDMI 2.1 support. Someday.
