Favorites and duds from today's commenting.

Don't be fooled by the number of Favorites. Today stunk. Woof.

Favorites, in no particular order:

I chuckled at this gag from Same Sad Echo in the Sochi Toilets post. It's so simple. That's how the pros do it.

Here's a sharp one-liner from Milo Minderbinder in the Michelle Obama post. It's a terrific dig packaged beautifully. Good stuff. Hey, we'll make this the Comment of the Day.

This is a great dig at Iman Shumpert from SavetoFavorites in the Cat Confusion post. So silly. You kind of know where this is going early on, but the fun is in watching it unfold.

Okay, I laughed at this ridiculous self-deprecating joke from DougExeter in the Cat Confusion post. It doesn't even make sense, for crying out loud. Idiot. Later, I enjoyed this dark joke in the Horse-Man post.

Ah, MattinglysSideburns. This is great, in the Bud Selig Award post. Please stick around, friend.

I chuckled at this sequence from pkellen2313 in the Richard Sherman Beef post. Okay, the avatar is a step in the right direction. Now, how about a new handle? It's time.

Total Fucking Duds

I've reserved this special place for Wendel Clark Bar, who decided to use the Deadspin comments this morning for a pointless, brain-dead commenting experiment, spamming boring memes in a handful of posts. Congratulations, you total moron, you sure proved a point - that memes are annoying as hell, and people who post them are idiots, and you're a huge fucking idiot. You spent today uglying up the comments and encouraging burners and newbies and tourists to do the same. Thanks for that! Because, you know, it's not like the rest of us are trying to encourage the comments in the exact opposite direction or anything. Dummy. All the bitching and moaning about the stupid spam garbage cluttering up the comments, and then this shit gets heaped on top. Christ. I hope you enjoyed the attention, you hack jackass. The shame of Kinja isn't that crummy burners are allowed entry, it's that bogus masturbatory junk like this doesn't unleash a commenting ninja to karate chop your ass back to the Stone Age.

There were an awful lot of bad jokes today. On the one hand, BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO. On the other hand, hey, a lot of bad jokes means a lot of jokes, and that's progress.

Enjoy your evening!
