MKM Open Thread (Feb 15, 2012)

Welcome to your MKM Blog open thread for February 15, 2012.  If your wife is cooking you breakfast, award yourself two points. If you're still married but sleeping in separate rooms, award yourself one point.  If you woke up in a puddle of blood in a holding cell, award yourself zero points.  If you woke up in a puddle of blood in a holding cell, still clutching the divorce papers your wife filed at you for forgetting Valentine's day again, award yourself three points. 

Good morning, everyone.  Well, yesterday was lively, wasn't it?  Here's hoping there are no comments containing words vile enough to provoke similar discussions today.  That's right, I don't want anyone commenting - regardless of context - to use the word "Sandusky" in anything.

Chat away.  Here's a Youtube clip to get you started.

    Hey, lookee here. Hatey made a misanthropic comment and we all rejoice. Did you know that R.K. had a lobotomy? I hope so, because if you didn't, you would have no idea why this comment was HILARIOUS.

    I am beginning to understand why Gawker commenters think we are sophomoric idiots.

    1. The more obscure and more time you have to spend up looking up somebody's reference, the funnier it is. That's why Dennis Miller is America's Top Comic 29 years running!

  2. Captain K'nuckles? Do people just horde their stars from bygone eras, only to resurface specifically to post shitty comments? Jesus.

    1. God damn it I used "horde" instead of "hoard." Fuck you, Captain K'nuckles.

  3. I'm sure this isn't breaking news to anyone here, but the pinkie reaction to Barry's "pre Madonna" post is tremendous.

    1. Hysterical. I keep waiting for DJ Jazzy Jeff to make an appearance.

    2. Holy shit! Tommy could use a post like this to mirror AJ's "Comment Here and Be Banned" posts at Gawker. What a great way to separate out the Yahoo! commenters.

      Would it be bad if I promoted all of them?

  7. Just a dude who likes tittiesFebruary 15, 2012 at 5:46 PM

    Can we all agree that there's no reason...and I mean NO FUCKING REASON...that Arthur Digby Sellers (or AiDS, as I have come to refer to him) should have a fucking star?

    http://deadspin.com/5885478/did-60-tcu-football-players-really-fail-a-drug-test?comment=47037601#comments

    WHAT IS THAT? What a lazy, trite, predictable puddle of diarrhea that comment is. What a stupid motherfucker for thinking it would work. I'm actually seething right now. He is fucking garbage.

      i completely understand your feelings but i actually like him. he's a complete wildcard. he occasionally comes up with some funny shit, but then he will drop a total steamer. i like to be surprised. better him than some consistently low-grade star like post rec specs or fat leaver.

      Delete
    2. I agree with the dude who likes titties. I can't think of the last time he's said something that's even managed to make me smile. He's like the bankrupt man's Hatey McLife. He tries to be shocking for the sake of shock, without...you know...actually forming it into something resembling a joke. He learned nothing from his "vacation".

      But fat leaver is terrible. I will give you that.

    3. Calm down, everybody, I've alerted the The Hague.

    4. AD Sellers does drop a nuke now and then, wildcard is totally the right phrase. Star or no star? I don't know, but his junk does often get counterbalanced.

      I'm not getting the Fat-Leaveher hate. He's not killing it with regularity, but his voice is different than the SteveU and EMS's of the site, and not in a bad way. If someone is going to go back and hit me over the head with links to his awful jokes, have at it, I'm sure he's made them. When he's on, I think FL has a unique, simple angle that is good, and a welcome break from the usual.

      icedupscrote:

      i dont think that fat leaveher is awful. i think you described him well. at his best, he is simple and good. but he is a low burning star. which is okay. we all know the 6 or 8 or 10 great commenters and not everyone has to be like them.

      Delete
  8. I SEE SOMEONE ELSE IS ALREADY FUCKING ANNOYED WITH ARTHUR DICKBY SELLERS' WEAK ASS JOKE. MAKE A JOKE MAN! YOU BASICALLY WROTE "REMEMBER THAT PLANE CRASHED? HA, THEY DIED."

    I CAN FEEL THE HATE SEEPING THROUGH YOU ALL. I FUCKING LOVE IT. CHANGE THE TITLE OF THIS BLOG TO "THE DEADSPIN GRIPE BOARD" OR "THIS IS WHY YOUR COMMENT SUCKS" AND YOU'D BE SITTING ON A GOLD MINE*

    *NOTHING WORTH ANYTHING.

    LATER DICKS.

    1. If only there was a way to call out people on such comments! All I see on the site is some button called "Reply." Re-ply? To "work with (a tool, esp. one requiring steady, rhythmic movements)" again? That doesn't even make sense; they should have a "Respond" or "Rejoinder" button.

      I realize that if we comment on a comment without materially appreciating the VRPV (value of replacement page views) for Deadspin Corp., a wholly owned subsidiary of Archer-Daniels Midland, we'll be sent packing by some sort of Alec Baldwin-like figure, so believe me I understand the trepidation.

    2. SAD AS IT IS, I VALUE MY STAR AND THE NINJAS DON'T WANT MY (OR ANYONE ELSE'S) HELP POLICING THE JOINT. THANKS FOR YOUR INPUT.

      BURGER KING. IT'S WHAT'S FOR BREAKFAST.

      Delete
    3. I'm stupid as hell - but is this you saying the Ninjas told you to stop posting over here?

      Delete
    4. I'll eat a lightbulb if I'm wrong, but I doubt that ninjas are bothering with what anyone posts here.

      Love ya, ANGRY STARRED ASSHOLE, keep after it.

      Delete
    5. I don't pretend to have the foggiest clue what the hell Angry Starred Asshole is talking about, but I read that as saying (correctly) that there is no place for any of us to voice our opinions on shitty comments on DS, because that is the ninja's domain.

      I really don't give a shit what you say here, as long as keep it free of racial slurs and you don't try to out anyone as the ninja, or otherwise blow up someone's spot.
