Roundup - Wednesday, April 23, 2014

How's everyone feeling today? Good, good. You look no worse for the wear, so let's see how the humor fared.

Favorites and Duds from Today's Commenting

Favorites, in no particular order

How YOU doing, Poignant Theater? We haven't heard from you in ages, so it's nice to see you back in the saddle with a funny LinkedIn parody in the Shaq post. Stay a while, will ya?

Sound_and_Pippen wrote a smart thought experiment in the morning's Umpire story, while Pleatherface followed up with some murky math.

It's hard to decide where to start in the Uganda Track post, because I missed the fracas in real time. Also, much of the humor to be gained from stand-alone comments is diluted by the (albeit entertaining) replies. From what I gather, The Amazing Sneijderman came strong out of the blocks with a characteristic been-caught-looking goof, which brought DubaiAtNight out of hiding with a send-up to yesterday's shitstorm. From there, things deteriorated quickly.

Below Sneijderman and a couple of Why Is This News and Let Me Nitpick Your Legalese knuckleheads, Same Sad Echo had a tremendous pull that deserves Comment of the Day. What I love about this line is that it follows Wemali's twisted logic about female anatomy to an absurdly crude and cartoonish end. Admittedly, it took me about a minute, but the head-shaking, nervous laughter is well worth it. Oof.

Emilio Delle Banjo stopped by the Fat Phil Jackson post and dropped a witty pun.

Punctuationless lower-case seems to have been invented for concise one-liners like this, right Curtis Wenis? Perhaps the funniest part about this joke is the seemingly-excerpted-from-an-actual-obituary simplicity of it.

How about a little late-day back-and-forth between RMJ=H and danoymously (or, by request, danonymously) in the Marlins-Braves post? Kinda wish that would have kept on going; it looked like a good'n.

A bit further down the page, chronic grinder Fartsmello Anthony got creative with the age-old Marlins-poor-attendance bit.

Stupid, stupid idiots The Amazing Sneijderman and Same Sad Echo gave me a good chuckle with this duo of jokes in Ray's Mall Sports list. I also guffawed at John, Maddened's supplemental list below.

After maintaining a low profile through most of the day, DougExeter had a smooth solo homer in the Sammy Sosa story.

Total Fucking Duds
