MKM Open Thread (Mar. 20, 2012)

Welcome to your MKM Blog open thread for March 20, 2012, the day that complicated modern statistical analysis has finally empirically established that you are not alone.  God bless you, social scientists.

Good morning, everyone.  Hope you're all feeling chipper this beautiful spring morning.  Let's all try to make some funny comments, and do it quickly, since there will be a new post up in 45 seconds so no one will ever read your comment because they'll already be trying and probably failing to write a funny comment on the next post, even though the next post isn't really a post, it's just a 12 second video clip where someone says something mildly awkward when totally removed from context and ohmigod there is an update on where Jay Fiedler might sign and SCREEEEEEEENCAP!!.

Here's a Youtube clip to get you started.

  1. For reasons that shall remain secret, I was watching the music video for "Winner Takes It All" from Over The Top. It's both amazing and horrifying.

  2. Don't know how many of you are active on twitter, but for about the last two weeks, Hume has been pumping out gems.

    @Pseudoacacia

    The guy's a revelation.

    1. I think he's pretty obnoxious. He's funny on deadspin, comes across like a real ass on twitter.

    2. Disagree, Ray Guy. He's doing some aggressively weird and creative shit, and I love it (as long as he keeps it on Twitter, I guess). It's ok to disagree though, we're all friends here, right?

  4. Yo, Emma just linked to this comment on Jezebel that is hilarious. If it were anywhere else on the internet, I would say that it was the greatest piece of sarcasm I'd ever seen. Unfortunately, because it's on Jezebel, it's probably just dumb.

    1. I also have a "terrible-blocker" on my computer, so that may have something to do with it. I can't even see your comments.

  6. Aware that this forum has been used to rip on the guy in the past, and in this instance, his comment is far from some byzantine riddle or subtle joke, but The4thMolinaBrother's comment "Barry, are you dating Michelle Tafoya" made me laugh out loud. I'm probably in the minority here.

    1. So I'm curious...why not promote it? I "skipped" over the comment initially because, well, it wasn't promoted, but I agree it's kind of funny.

      /Not Molina, I'm some other unstarred needy commenter who likes positive feedback

      Delete
    2. I did not promote it because I reckon it's semi-meta, and I have been warned in the past by the ninja to avoid such commentary. If it was a comment that didn't reference the author, I surely would have promoted regardless of the consensus amongst starred commenters that he "just doesn't get it". I try not to pass judgment on any commenter, because I was once a hack myself, and I'm sure others would attest to the fact that I still am.

      I've made more than my share of "Barry has a neck tat" jokes that were in hindsight not very humorous at all.

      Surely, you realize that there are cliques around Deadspin, and amongst the starred commenters, there are the 'insiders' and those who are on the fringes; thus multiple +1's for a comment that doesn't seem that funny, and zero adulation for a comment by somebody unknown or not within the jizzy confines of the circle jerk. I'm trying my best to steer clear of such things and promote or +1 a comment that I generally find funny without even looking at the handle or avatar.

      Having said that, nobody really gives a hoot about my opinion - nor should they - you asked, I answer.

      P.s. I was once unstarred and looking for positive feedback too; I can't help but reckon I wouldn't be still polluting these pages if it wasn't for a few starred commenters that seem like genuinely kind people, notably, Phin, vodkanaut, IMG, WalkOffHBP, and others.

      Keep it up, whoever you are.
