Wednesday Roundup

Favorites and duds from today's commenting.

Favorites, in no particular order:

Here's a dynamite one-liner from The Amazing Sneijderman in the Lionel Messi post from this morning. I can't be the only guy who pictures The Amazing Sneijderman as a blond bespectacled northern European intellectual, owing entirely to a clumsy and misinformed preconception of what people named Sneijder must all look like. And later, here's a hilarious sequence from the Schwab Fired post. Those Nordic types are so sharp.

Keeping with that theme, here's another strong one-liner in that same post from darinh, who I have managed to assume is an unkempt alcoholic, with all the attending stereotypical physical characteristics, in much the same way I have visualized virtually all commenters who regularly neglect proper capitalization and punctuation. I also thought this joke in the Goodell Letter post was hilarious. Obviously, darinh knows a thing or two about not being sober.

Here's a funny photoshop job in the Drew on TV post from someone named The_Green_Smile, who I am currently picturing with an abnormally and alarmingly elongated head.

Here's an excellent bit of misdirection from stern-faced Gregory Peck lookalike Steve U in the NFL Gay Pride T-Shirts post. And here's a spectacular one-liner in the MLB-In-Australia post. That's just fantastic. And finally, here's an outstanding, elegant little jab in the Schwab Fired post. Now please tell us how we must never shoot a mockingbird.

Here's a hilarious shot at CNN from Eddie Murray Sparkles that apparently flew right over the head of Tim Burke in the Puerto Rican League Fight post. This joke deserved more attention. And Eddie Murray Sparkles of course looks exactly like his avatar. Later, he cracked me up with this terrific one-liner in the Tennis Channel post. Wonderful.

Here's a long, fun offering from the disgusting, horrifying Rare Endangered Vuvuzela in the Tennis Channel post. This terrific joke provides its own little story arc and a tidy premise/set-up/punchline delivery. And Rare Endangered Vuvuzela looks like something that leapt wetly out of H.P. Lovecraft's worst night terror.

And finally, I chuckled at this quote from DownhillSherpa in that same post. Simple and straightforward. DownhillSherpa strikes me as a crunchy Williamsburg type. Kickball-playing asshole.

Total Fucking Duds

To hell with duds. Who has the energy nowadays? I'll get to them when I can get to them.

Have the best Wednesday night.
