There weren't a ton of posts on Deadspin today and the jokes weren't outstanding. Here's a roundup.

Favorites and Duds from Today's Commenting

Favorites, in no particular order:

Today featured a solid Brett Favre's dick joke by HiLoSilver. It's wordplay and it's definitely the best joke on a story that featured numerous adults asking some variation of "what was play even trying for though?" 2-stars.

chid made a decent joke on the Taylor Swift story. That's a lot of nonsense to get to a very basic "Knicks suck" punch line, but it works. 2 stars.

We had two very good jokes on the missing Broncos fan story. I don't know you, econdave, but your reply was a 2-star pull. banchovi dropped an unseasoned slab of meat on the grill, and you provided the seasoning. Nice work. ObscureSimpsonsReference recontextualized the story as a wonderful piece of LA-fandom snark. That's a great 3-star effort, and it's your Comment of the Day.

Longtime commenting star, cobra, brah! revised a headline to comedic effect. This is excellent, under-appreciated stupidity. 3 stars.

Total Fucking Duds

There's a new moron in town and he's named stop.making.excuses.and.man.up.

This one by Foznuts549 could have used a few more revisions. I see what you were trying to do, but the phrasing is clunky, it's missing the quotation marks that attribution jokes use, and I don't love the set up to begin with. Still, you definitely could have made it stronger. Don't hit Submit until you know your joke is as close to perfect as you can possibly make it. You can do better, Foz.

Who really gives a shit what KingofSarcasma feels about Russell Wilson? This is a 1/4-star comment, at best, but not dud worthy. The crime against commenting here was committed by Christian_Okoye_Dokoye. What the fuck does that even mean? "Hey guys, uhh, this other fact about Russell Wilson!" Zero stars. Stupid. Please be quiet forever.

That's it for today. If I missed anything, please tell me.
