Illustration for article titled Roundup - Monday, September 8th, 2014

Welcome to another Monday Roundup. Some of you were very funny today in spite of many reasons not to be. I applaud your joke-making effort and energy. Let's get to the Fs and Ds.

Favorites and Duds from Today's Commenting

Favorites, in no particular order:

pkellen2313 had a nice turn-of-phrase on the Ray Rice elevator video post. He is pretty good at this sort of thing. Because this post was scorching hot, there were many comments with hundreds of stars. This was the stand out.


This is a criminally overlooked piece of wordplay by Fidrych or die tryin in one of the other Ray Rice posts. Fiddy's original phrasing here was not as good (look at the URL), and like a champion, he quickly edited it until it worked. That's good hustle from a scrappy performer.

I like many things. One of them is the well-established premise that Todd Haley is a middle-aged, sports car-loving townie who lives for loose women and rock and roll. Same Sad Echo did it with legalese, and marmol heater did it (at exactly the same time!) with pure sleaze. These are your co-Comment(s) of the Day.

Total Fucking Duds

This one by CromartieMcFly isn't a TFD in the typical sense, it just should have been better. I enjoyed the idea here. I know that we always rush to publish, because the sooner you post, the more people see it, the more stars you get, the more you love yourself, etc. but a simple line edit here ("himself" instead of "themselves") would have made it even better.


In the cyclists post, Lana, Lana,…LANAAAAAA!!! made a meta-joke(?) about people making jokes. I don't know why people do this. It conveys a very annoying haughtiness and also isn't actually funny. I've seen you be funny before, Lana. I know you can do it.

This joke by HairMetalHenry was funnier the first 300 times I saw it on Twitter about two weeks ago. Please be original or don't comment. Everyone hates hacks. You don't want to be a hack, Henry.


I didn't go below the fold for the Ray Rice duds. I know there are many wrongheaded pieces of human shit out there. One of them, SumleySuper, had this very, very stupid re-contextualization that proves absolutely nothing approved, to which I can only say, "Yeah, but what if Ray was starving and she was like the only Double Whopper Value Meal left on earth? WHAT WOULD YOU SAY THEN!?!?!?!?!"

That's it for today. Enjoy football or whatever else you do with your life. Let me know if you have any opinions in the comments.
