Roundup - Monday, April 21, 2014

Favorites and duds from today's commenting...

Hey folks, glad you listened to me and picked things up last week. Today was a semi-official kind of holiday-ish thing, so I understand that things weren't terribly busy, but there were a few good jokes out there. Off we go.


Favorites, in no particular order:

Milo Minderbinder (other roundup guys, this is how you spell his name) with a nice Idiot joke in the Blazers post. We throw out the term "Idiot joke" here a lot, or at least a little bit, but the best Idiot jokes are, ironically, the cleverest ones, where a reference is purposely obscured, making the punchline much more subtle than, say, a joke like this (not to pick on this guy). This one was nicely done, Milo.

A lot of people went with a similar angle (not surprisingly, as it was a blindingly obvious way to go about it) but there was something charming about burner sophist2's dig at Paul Konerko in the First Base Animation post that made me laugh. The delivery was right, I think - not too much, not too mean-spirited, and easily written. I liked it, at least.

girlwonder came through with some timely blasphemy in the Easter Bunny Ambush post. That's funny.

Also, in the same post, BONG HITS 4 TEBOW came out of nowhere with a reference that I certainly didn't have to look up to figure the hell out. Good job.

No Comment of the Day today. Deal with it.

Total Fucking Duds

I don't have the stomach for it. Just read the comments in the hockey or soccer posts. You'll get the gist of it. Comments below, if it's not too late.
