Not a bad job today, gang. But enough with the small talk....

Favorites and Duds from Today's Commenting

Favorites, in no particular order:

The success in this bit of idiot humor from FreemanMcNeil comes in large part from its wry, terse delivery.

This over-the-top recontextualization/misdirection joke from Same Sad Echo in the Gregg Popovich was underappreciated. SSE demonstrated his versatility with this "so dumb it's funny" number in one of the day's Roger Goodell posts.

Everyone knows cobra, brah! has a talent for wordplay and this is a clever, if cringeworthy, example

This, an absurd play on the announcer's name in the Buster Posey walk-off homerun post from StuartScottsEye, is your Comment of the Day.

Total Fucking Duds

The "just don't do drugs" argument that constantly pops up in comments about athletes facing drug suspensions is particularly useless when a case raises questions about a league's testing policies and procedures. AfterFurtherReview goes there, and then follows it up with an equally vacuous "if I did that at my job, I would be fired."

As usual, let me know what I missed.
