MKM Open Thread (Mar 16, 2012)

Welcome to your MKM Blog open thread for March 16, 2012, the day George Clooney managed to come off as an arrogant self-centered cock even while being arrested for protesting outside the Sudanese embassy.  The guy really does have incredible range.

This fucking cold is killing me.  It's strictly from the neck up, but everything above my neck is failing miserably.  I'm congested everywhere, light-headed, coughing and sneezing like I contracted the plague in a pepper factory, and of course, bleeding uncontrollably from my eyes.

Have you ever noticed how you cannot even imagine being healthy when you are sick?  It's like, I cannot even picture myself going to the gym or a bar at a time like this.  My brain is totally convinced it will never recover from this.

Anyway, be gentle to my comments today, there's a lot of medicine going on.

Here's a Youtube clip and such.

  1. At first I thought this comment by mkokotovich was a joke that was based on the obscurity of wheelchair curling as a sport, but I'm starting to think that this was just a shot at Barry and everybody who read/commented on the article without pointing that out.

    It's the latter, isn't it?

    1. Yeah. I think you might be right. If it's the former, it's not well done.

    2. I came here to see if anyone else had thoughts on this. It takes all of my willpower not to respond "Hilarious!!!" to comments like that one.

  2. Can't remember the last time I saw a post completely removed as was just the case with Dickey's Harvard 2nd Round fiasco. Ouch.

    1. I can't believe they erased that post. I had a grade-inflation joke all ready to go.

    2. I've seen this happen a few times. It always reemerges later in the day. I didn't even see Dickey's post today.

    3. It's not going to reemerge, dishknob. Dickey totally fucked up and had to take it down. He even had to acknowledge it in the dead letters thing. Which, features a really awesome blast on Leitch. That doesn't happen often enough if you ask me. The guy sure gets a lot of reverence for nothing. Leitch may have started the site, but all he did was aggregate some news and add a few lines of commentary. AJ made the site what it is.

  3. AT LEAST YOU DIDN'T MOCK SOMEONE FOR CALLING THE SECOND ROUND THE SECOND ROUND.

    1. Darn, if only I had the opportunity to do so now.

    2. That was meant for IMG, not you. Dickey fucked up. Bawahahaa.

    3. Btw, the picture that is linked by clicking on your handle is funny, because it's a dead snake, a cobra in fact. Where I find the humour in it is that my handle is cobra, your picture is of a dead cobra. Trying to draw parallels between the two, I'll get back to you when I figure it out :)

    Is this comment funnier if I use a worse comedian? (I will not accept "it's not even funny to begin with, you ass gasket.")

    1. I'd submit that using one of the greatest and most successful standups of all time was probably not the smartest move there.

      Delete
    2. Since you won't accept the correct answer, I'm going to agree with Anonymous there. Seinfeld is one of the best ever.

      The only way that joke works is with "Landycakeboss".

      Delete
    4. Landycakeboss! TOO funny if it weren't an inside joke.

      Delete
    5. It's probably a slam dunk if you had used Dane Cook or Carlos Mencia.

  5. I like the drunken hookup story today that will happen in the next couple of weeks. I wonder if Sammy has any other tales from the future?

  6. My original post had Margaret Cho. Bleh. Thought the Jerry/Jerry might carry weight.

      The fact that they have the same name didn't even register with me.

    2. It was kinda terrible WITH Margaret Cho.

  7. Brief hypocritical rant...

    Somebody else in my office is watching the games on their computer. I know this because I am trying to watch the games on mine, and my connection is slow as shit. Whoever he is should get his ass back to work so that I can be the one slacking off instead.
