Hello, I'm Benevolent Dictator. Let's do this.

Favorites and Duds from Today's Commenting

Favorites, in no particular order:

RMJ=H got us started off this morning with some deft high-brow/low-brow wordplay in the Brian Hoyer post. ItLnStLn also had a tidy little misunderstanding joke in the same post that plays off Manziel's well-known love of partying.

Will fat coach jokes ever stop being funny? I hope not because there were a few good ones in the Chip Kelly post, particularly Same Sad Echo's pithy attribution and a swipe at Andy Reid from pkellen2313. Madoffs Mets went a different route with a mini dialogue that made me laugh and cringe at the same time.

This, in the Curt Schilling post, is so stupid, Milo Minderbinder, that I guffawed. Also stupid? Marmol Heater being literal in the Derrick Rose post. Sad knees indeed. You both are idiots and I love it.

This ice cold, deadpan one-liner from Curtis Wenis in the Kent State post is so pitch perfect that it's your Comment of the Day, folks.

In the Vince Young post, cobrah, brah! has a nice spin on "football causes head injuries". This is a well-worn topic but his take on it was too funny and tight to ignore. In the same post, we had an excellent and wistful attribution joke from HiLoSilver and a gut punch from FreemanMcNeil.

This little non-fact from Mangini In A Bottle in the volcano post works because of the imagery it provokes. Close your eyes and picture all of those panicky, embarrassed airline employees.

Finally, this sketch in the Peter Gammons post from Emilio Delle Banjo is just disgusting but goddamn it made me laugh. Congrats on making the favorites but now go see someone about your obsession with the man's masturbatory habits.

Total Fucking Duds

Apparently, Jagorim Jarg and Gene Shalit's Merkin just can't help themselves when they see a reference to the color pink on a sign in the Josh Ho-Sang post. Lazy derp crap like that should be in the greys.

And, in the second Mo'Ne post of the day, we have yet more reminders that the phenom's name sounds like "money." Thanks, chupacabraburrito and IcecoldDavis, we get it. Now stop. And I really hope I'm misinterpreting this from John, Maddened and this from Smoak on the Water. She's fucking 13.

Anyway, good day of commenting, ladies and gentlemen. Feel free to yell at me below for anything you think I missed and I'll see you next time.
