Some favorites and a few duds from today's commenting.
Favorites, in no particular order.
Sheed's Bald Spot brought the funny with grim tidings of a future post-apocalyptic wasteland in the Bully Update post.
All Over But The Sharting cracked me up with a nice America's Funniest Home Videos joke in the Bike Race post.
Total Fucking Duds
In the Wake Up Deadspin post, inexplicably-starred commenter lauren_jo misfired with some nonsense about the Texas/Arizona game. BFDNBNF.
Unstarred commenter Lady Pha Pha violated the same edict with some crap about spelling UNC's name correctly. Hey, this ain't ESPN.com, knucklehead. The Wake Up Deadspin post seemed to inspire a lot of bad commenting.
I don't know what the hell nightelfmohawk was thinking with this rambling, incoherent bullshit in the Wake Up Deadspin post, but the fact that it was promoted is deeply troubling. EDIT: It has been brought to my attention that nightelfmohawk is, in fact, a starred commenter. In other news, my head just exploded.
Phintastic missed terribly with this incredibly lazy attempt at a joke in the Blake Griffin Dunk/Technical post. I guess you take the good with the bad from Phintastic, but he was in full-on grind mode today.
And finally, unstarred commenter packman_jon delivered the Terrible Comment of the Day with this rotten deuce of a reply to Landycakeboss's joke in the Bike Race post. What the hell is that? I don't understand; did a piano fall through the ceiling and flatten him immediately after he finished typing the word "expactations"? God, I hope so.
As you can probably tell, I did not enjoy the comments from today's post. The commentariat seemed flat from start to finish, and any number of otherwise solid commenters threw up puzzling, awkward, low-hanging-fruit-style jokes throughout the day.
And now, DUAN!
