Tuesday Roundup

Favorites and duds from today's commenting.

Favorites, in no particular order (moving quickly):

Here's a humdinger from Eddie Murray Sparkles in the Bishop O'Connell post. On most days, this is your Comment of the Day.

Here's a familiar angle from DougExeter in the Bishop O'Connell post. Subtle and effective. Also, here's a great Dick Cheney joke in the Celtic Manager post. Good stuff. And later, here's a kickass dig at the Lions in the Abandoned Silverdome post. This guy's great.

This is sharp and funny and beautifully delivered from Sponsored by V8 in the Terrible Lakers post. Great joke.

Here's a hysterical sequence from Gamboa Constrictor in the Ice Ice Baby post. I laughed aloud at this.

Here's a gruesome reference from Post ApocalypticRecSpecs in the Abandoned Silverdome post. Yeesh.

Here's a terrific crack from Bring Back Anthony Mason in the Phil Mickelson post. Excellent.

I enjoyed this wordplay caption joke from Madoffs Mets in the Phil Mickelson post. Very clever.

And finally, here's a rare post-DUAN Favorite, and it is today's Comment of the Day, from Theodore Donald Kerabatsos in the ESPN Wasted Tip post. That's wonderful.

Total Fucking Duds

This is pretty shocking. You're capable of so much more!

Thanks for reading. I'm desperately trying to catch up. Have a great night.


  1. I fucked up that Silverdome joke so bad. I finally had my internet service restored after a day without, and jumped the goddamn gun. It should have read: "A shredded, silver, dome would be the perfect venue to host the first annual Dwyer Bowl."

    Or "first annual Budd Bowl," but I'm not sure people would've got the reference.

    1. See, "Budd Bowl" would have been more elegant... but almost TOO smooth for most to catch the joke.

      It may be comparatively sledgehammer-subtle this way, but it's also as impactful. (Non-sequitur-y pulls tend to need be at least a little more overt than a joke related to the material might be... though it is a tricky calculus.)

  2. I would've gotten it, PARS. Very nice!

  3. Hey, this Exeter guy is like the new Raysism or something*!
