MKM Open Thread (Feb. 23, 2012)

Welcome to your MKM Blog open thread for February 23, 2012, the day Rick Santorum finally managed to confront Mitt Romney on his controversial oh my god are you seriously still reading this because I'm now just writing random words banana watch kitten hat. 

Good morning, everyone!  Do you see that exclamation point?  It's there to indicate my enthusiasm about seeing you all today.  Isn't it nice to feel appreciated?  It's not something you always get at home or at the office, but you'll always have it here.  See?  See how young, hip, good looking, and happy we look?  "That's a nice sweater, man."  "Oh, hey, thanks.  And that's a lovely polygon shaped outfit on you too."

Okay, so let's do this chat like MKM would.  Start out all enthusiastic, then get whiny for no reason, then feel remorse, and then want to go back to where we started but it's too late because you killed the one thing that was truly beautiful in this world and you'll never get it back so you just have to bury your sorrows in white wine spritzers and poppers.  Hey, I'll even break out a Youtube clip to get you started.

  4. So...Who wants to talk about Hatey McLife?

    1. I'd like to say that Hatey is hilarious - always has been.

      That being said, I've had a couple of personal interactions with him and I think the reason why he seems so detached is that he's actually a 700 pound grizzly bear.

      Did I miss the point? Should I be trolling here?

      Delete
    2. Oh heavens yes on the trolling. If there is any way to edit your comment to say IMG suks hateys ballz I'd really appreciate it. There's a certain decorum we're trying to uphold here.

  6. Special shout out to Fat Leaveher for posting a picture AND a video in the same comment. That takes some serious balls.

    Dissect please. Did I actually have to mention jumping the shark? Or just meh. Another one of my complexes is kicking in.

    1. Well, it was ok, but you could have changed "a" to "the", and inserted the corresponding picture. The dunker would then have to miss, of course.

    2. I think it's funny. Missed it the first time.

    1. I assumed AOOBG's response was just a way to work "Better Man" into a comedy pyramid, and wasn't actually an insult.

      Delete
    2. to clarify, he was continuing the Pearl Jam song joke that CIBAF started.

    3. And Even Flow!

    4. I knew I missed something there, thanks. I think I assumed there was a song or album called "Progress".

  11. This comment was overlooked today. They probably should have waited until the inevitable Madrid Museo de America post.

    Look at this bullshit. A lazy "HURR KHLOE KARDASHIAN IS FAT" non-joke that couldn't have less to do with the actual story. What a piece of garbage.

      If you need me, I'll be off lighting myself on fire.

    5. Hah! That's wonderful... I've made insane rambling and replying to oneself my trademark.

    6. Absolutely, that gem last night reminded me immediately of the comment from your mom.

    7. @SBV8 Dude, I can't believe you remember that. That's one of my all-time favorites. I think there's so much territory to explore with two (or three or four..) part comments that I wouldn't dare explore in regulation DS.

    8. The mom comment is one of my absolute all-time Deadspin favorites.

    9. Loved that mom comment. LOVED it.

  15. Programming question - why a separate thread for DUAN and the Knicks/Heat? Do open threads for games get that full?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Because the Knicks/Heat open thread is supposed to be just for discussion of that game and DUAN is DUAN.
