Well lookie here: it's Your Curator back with the Daily Roundups. Did you miss me? Because I sure as shit didn't miss you. Just kidding, a little sarcasm to ease my way back into this thankless gig. How about some meta-commentary, yes?
Favorites and Duds from Today's Commenting
Favorites, in no particular order:
Holy moly, Bevraj of Choice, it seems we've got to get up pretty early to keep up with you. This is such an excellent and taut wordplay in the morning's Sterling Lawsuit post. Very neat. Very tidy.
[spit take] What the fuck? When was the last time All Over But The Sharting made a Deadspin comment? I thought he was too busy inhabiting the empty, soulless sack that is Albert Burneko's rotting corpse. Whatever. This correction joke in the Justin Masterson story is downright stunning. I mean, who wouldn't want to see Mike Lupica beaned into the afterlife? Here's your Comment of the Day.
I couldn't help but laugh at RMJ=H's grand unravel in the Choking post today. As I've said before, RMJ can write some of the best misattribution jokes, and this one, like his stupid Friends redux, is just great. I'd compare today's, perhaps, to Pleatherface's comment a couple weeks ago, where the easy (and altogether crass) domestic violence angle is lingering out there before a strong about-face midway through. (As an aside, how did no one pick up on the player's name, Bogdan Bogdanović, translating to Bogdan, son of Bogdan? Maybe it's just me, but it seems like that could have gone a long way for some quality laughs.)
Total Fucking Duds
How many goddamn times are you going to show up down here, court? This snotty little gripe in the Donaldson post is just atrocious.
Yes, GameOfHousewives, you can resist; and you should resist. There's nothing here. It has no weight, no color, no taste, no sound, no smell. It's just … nothing.
There's your Roundup, girls and boys. Drop your personal favorites or gripes below, and I'll see you tomorrow for more funny business. Over and out.
