For some reason (/wanking motion) it was a slow day today in Commentland. But there was some fun to be had.

Favorites, in no particular order:

The venerable Erg scores a favorite in the Charity Event Fight post with this apt and dark observation. This is not a traditional joke or one-liner, but a comment that you can't help but picture being delivered with a slight shoulder shrug and barely-perceptible shake of the head. It fit the mood of the day and gets recognition accordingly.

On to the funny stuff - fusilliGaryBettman made me laugh with this holiday wordplay in the Colored Snow post. I'm not sure if he intentionally went for the white/colored subtext that was more explicit in another joke, but it seemed like he did to me, and it was funny and stupid nonetheless.

Speaking of funny and stupid, DougExeter showed up with a total Idiot joke in the Sochi Security Breach post. Honestly, this joke is so stupid and ridiculous, but I laughed for like two minutes.

The Sochi post seemed to bring a few good comments out of people, including this all-too-personal tale from RMJ=H. That's just daffy. At least he had a better urology experience the next time.

In the same post, Milo Minderbinder came through with a straightforward Idiot-style joke that was delivered perfectly. It would be very easy to make this joke and have it fall flat on its face, but the "well, fuck" gives it the perfect tone. See, kids? Swearing is good. I guess this is the Comment of the Day.

Horribly-named burner stretchypoo made the most of his limited comedic ability with this stupid joke in the Hard Knocks post. The staff/staph wordplay joke is probably running out of steam, but it worked here, and that's what matters. Get an avatar and a non-stupid name and keep on plugging.

Total Fucking Duds

On a day filled with virulent and stupid racism, this gem by asshole Billy Clyde Puckett seemed to slip under the radar. That's bullshit.

Surprisingly, there were no other duds. All discussion in the various and sundry Richard Sherman articles was well-thought-out and not an affront to anyone's dignity. At no point was I reminded of a fetid pool of garbage water. Everything is a Dud today. Fuck this, I'm out.

Post omissions below and don't read the bad comments.
