Welcome to today's Roundup. There were some solid jokes today. I liked a lot, I loved a couple. Here we go:

Favorites and Duds from Today's Commenting

Favorites, in no particular order:

Great little piece of dialogue in the NY Governor's Race story by perennial Roundup favorite, Same Sad Echo. I didn't know where it was going, but the gradual build up to the punch line did it for me.


Milo Minderbinder made some solid jokes today. He had a clever Duke dig in the Coach K Team USA post, and followed it up by dropping this piece of wordplay on the Adrian Peterson story. These both work because they rely on truth. Milo is particularly good at this sort of thing.

Nice macabre re-framing by Dave Algonquin (WWTD?) on the NYT/Ray Rice punch analysis quote.


The Colin Kaepernick inappropriate language post had a few gems, including marmol heater's Emmitt Smith jab. This is the kind of joke that doesn't usually do it for me (it gets overdone a lot by lesser commenters), but there's something about the concise phrasing marmol used that makes it sing. The real highlight on this post was pkellen2313's obliteration of the NFL. Nice pull, PK. This is your Comment of the Day.

RMJ=H made a Sandusky joke that manages to insult both Penn State and infamous Rutgers AD, Julie Hermann, and he should be commended for such a feat.


Total Fucking Duds

Quality comment, LOON ARMY. Please don't engage with this trash, people.

I don't know if this comment by bimps is a joke or just practical advice.

Stupid bullshit from nouraburner.

There are plenty of bad comments on Greg Howard's Titans' reporter story. Take a look if you like things that suck and are also annoying.


That's it for me. Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments, I'll save you time, Ray, "This Roundup sucks and I wish MadBastardsAll wrote it. First amendment."
