Tuesday Roundup

Favorites and duds from Tuesday's commenting.

Favorites, in no particular order:

This recontextualization from IronMikeGallego in the ESPN Memo post is good for a hearty laugh. That's a terrific pull.

Here's a humdinger from Eddie Murray Sparkles in the TMZ post. Holy cow. This is the kind of comment that makes people want to crack their own killer jokes instead of droning on and on about whether Tony Parker is better than Chris Paul. More jokes! All of you! More goddamn jokes!

I enjoyed this line from ObscureSimpsonsReference in the TMZ post. It follows a familiar structure, where a line or quote is made goofy and unwieldy by replacing a word or words with something clunky and specific. This can be a very easy joke type - even, at times, too easy - and so it's important that the new content have the right out-of-sync-ness with the original line. The safety data request is perfectly inappropriate for the tone, and the exclamation point really drives home the silliness. Good stuff.

I laughed aloud at this line from Demps351 in the Joshua Sale post. That's excellent! Somebody get this guy a goddamn avatar!

I also laughed at this offering from The Amazing Sneijderman in the Joshua Sale post. I'm not even entirely sure what it means, but I laughed at it. Nice job.

I feel like this one-liner from darinh in the Rob Ford Cake post is good for a chuckle. Nothing super-ambitious about it, just a funny visual based upon a clever observation. Great job.

Here's a welcome visit from Madoffs Mets in the Livestrong post. It's very encouraging to see Madoffs Mets in the comments. Stick around, friend.

And, finally, this is so dumb and charming, from FreemanMcNeil in the Eric Wedge post. So silly.

Total Fucking Duds

Here's brain-dead jackass 65powertossfap reminding us all that some shows are funny sometimes and also that he is not and probably never has been, in the Brittney Griner post. Make your own jokes, jerk-off.

How about a recycled line from the awful Lana, Lana,...LANAAAAAA!!! in the Joshua Sale post? Because, really, who doesn't like a recycled line?

Here's a boring, uninspired one-ball joke from I Love Big TDs in the Livestrong post. Nice try, dingus.

I found this thread to be excruciating and so, so depressing. Let's just minimally change several goddamn paragraphs of dialogue from a well-known movie and tell ourselves we're making jokes. This stuff kills my mood. Go to hell, decgeek and token_liberal. Couple o'morons.

That's it! We're behind by almost a day, but we're still cookin'. Have a great night, everyone.
