Roundup - Tuesday, July 15, 2014

Somewhat slower day in Commentland today than yesterday, and I was all set to say "fuck it," but a number of you were around to carry the load. Let's round 'em up.

Favorites and Duds from Today's Commenting

Favorites, in no particular order:

Pretty much nothing of note until after lunch today, when pkellen2313 dropped a zinger in the Vikings' Jerseys post. Even in the offseason, Christian Ponder is tossing turnovers.

Big round of applause for IronMikeGallego, who took a wicked-funny swipe at Burneko in the Bucs' Longform auction. Here's your Comment of the Day.

Also in the Bucs' Longform thing, Kanye Westeros' synopsis brought a smile to my face. This comment, of course, isn't a joke per se, but KW delivers the paraphrase with esprit and verve that far overshoots the ludicrous tone (I assume) of what is a self-serving, pointless advertorial. I audibly laughed at "Lovie Smith is an unapologetic fan of the Combine," because of course he is. Well done, Kanye.

Zounds! That Oscar Pistorius, amirite? Mucho good-o in that post. Is this comment a Forrest Gump reference, marmol heater? It sure as shit looks like a Forrest Gump reference. That's funny stuff. I also liked Fidrych or die tryin's nerdist remark, and—dear God—RMJ=H's joke is some wonderful eyes-wide humor.

Two favorites in the Greg Hardy Trial update. ReverseApeChemist followed pkellen's example with a wonderful dialogue at the expense of the hapless Tony Romo, and cobra, brah!'s clipped observation made me shake my head. Well done, gentlemen.

Total Fucking Duds

No duds. I'm still working on Wednesday's Roundup, so be on the lookout. While you wait, if you haven't checked out Shitehawk's foray into postmodernism, you are missing out. READ IT. You're the best.
