Favorites and duds from today's commenting.
Favorites, in no particular order:
Here's a terrific joke from DougExeter in the Kevin Durant Cheat Code post. It takes a literal slant on the post's headline and cranks out an absurd little sequence. I'm still chuckling at this one.
This is about what we've come to expect from SavetoFavorites in the Lance Armstrong, Snitch post. So rich and gutsy. That is a hell of a comment.
Impossible to not laugh at this comment from Same Sad Echo in the Stuart Scott P90X post. Impossible. This is your Comment of the Day. Later, the son-of-a-bitch contributed this sendup in the Andray Blatche Shit List post. Ass.
So, yeah, this is pretty silly, from TheCarlosRuizSpanishEnglishDictionary in the Misidentified Kings post, but I laughed. What the hell. It's really the "Dumas" that drives home the humor, and perhaps only because it really does work well as a caricature of internet idiots.
Here's an excellent pull from ReverseApeChemist in the Kobe Bryant, Defensive Specialist post. I especially like this joke because it sort of wrings everything possible out of its particular angle. Maybe the draw pun just can't deliver a COTY!!1! joke, but I'm not sure it can be done better than this. Efficient and in perfect order.
EDIT: I'm not sure how I fucked this up, but these next two jokes belong to Poignant Theater. Here's a funny shot at Mark Wohlers (of all people) in the John Rocker post. It's another very strong reference. And finally, here's a funny stereotyping of a few Gawker sites and their commenters in the Emma for Scocca post. Good stuff. Sorry for the confusion.
Check out this excellent thread in the Used Rugs post, featuring The Amazing Sneijderman, Malik Sealy Dirt Mattress, and especially Body By Bacardi. Jesus! Look at that entry from Body By Bacardi. That's a humdinger right there. Also, holy shit are the jokes in the Used Rugs post fucking awful. Scroll down a bit and be hammered by depression.
And finally, oh man, this is fucking hysterical, from The Amazing Sneijderman in the Terry Francona post. This was a very close contender for Comment of the Day. Holy moly.
Total Fucking Duds
I know LOUD-NOISES is a burner account run by a regular commenter. I know it. And I hate it all the more because of it. May whoever is behind this thing be dropped from an airplane into a volcano. This stuff makes me absolutely nuts.
Here's a dreadful, beneath-terrible combination of clumsy, tone-deaf stupidity and the lowest of low-hanging fruit, from some hopeless reject called Destro2112 in the Lance Armstrong, Snitch post. There's a comment that is even too stupid for YouTube.
I suppose this ought to get some credit for at least being an attempt at humor . . . wait, no, never mind. It's a fucking train-wreck. Perhaps the worst comment of the day, from some poor lost soul called ryanjm58.
Oh Christ fucking kill me.
Hey, thanks for reading. And let's all thank our guy GerryDuty for stepping in and doing a jobby job job yesterday. And, hey, also, fuck Andray Blatche.
