Roundup - Thursday, June 19, 2014

Welcome back, chuckos. Here's your Thursday Roundup, now with new and improved weed-killing action. Ready … GO.

Favorites and Duds from Today's Commenting

Favorites, in no particular order:

Slow-ish morning, but I was much impressed by this zesty swing from Joey Tallywacker in the Kershaw No-No post.

Two very nice Idiot jokes in the 11-Year Old Golfer story: DougExeter drew the ire of some nitwits with this over-reading gimmick, while Milo Minderbinder—who, I should say, had one hell of a day—reworked the Asian aptitude angle for hilarious effect.

SeriousWhimsy has taken a serious thwack at Deadspin commenting, and this precise shot is a quality one-liner. What I like most about this one is that it uses the German Engineering trope as leaping-off point for a funny stab at Spain's lackluster effort. Excellent stuff, SW.

Alright. Everyone sit down for a minute. You, yes YOU, mute the TV and come here. I want you to read Same Sad Echo's quaint little screenplay and tell me just what the fuck is going on there. This comment is so absurd in conception, yet so perfect in execution. Is this like some duck-family sitcom? What the hell did daughter duck do? Why is brother duck staring into the camera at the end? Should we be asking these questions at all? What are you going to do with your Comment of the Day, Echo? Are you feeling well? Do your wife and children know that you write hilarious, bonkers shit like this on a daily basis? Will you hold me and tell me everything will get better?

Milo Minderbinder returned this afternoon with a wonderful smackdown on Donald Sterling. Personally, I find this Wish-Sterling-Was-Dead vein quite a healthy line of humor-making, and Milo's joke is just wonderful.

Total Fucking Duds

Duds are cancelled for the week. Fuck the duds. Share any errors or omissions below. Sayonara, suckers!
