MKMOT (May 24, 2012)

Rough day out there yesterday, but I choose to focus on the good. Bristolmetrics came and went without a single Palin joke. I know my #MAKEITSTOP tactics are a source of contention around here, but remember, I don't want to have to use them. So, here's a +1 to all of you for restraint. I think it was Sun Tzu who once said "Sometimes the best comment is the one you don't make." Either him or BuDaMan, but regardless, a salient point.

It's open. Powwow below Bow Wow.


  1. I'm just waiting for the first "[Pictured]: The sausage race's newest entrant - Chinese Sausage" joke in the daily screencap.

    1. Looks like you've already got it covered.

    So I guess none of you fuckers saw Star Wars. That's my one and only good Han Solo joke.

  3. God knows that I love my music
    Ain't no one gonna change my tune
    Don't ya know that I love my music
    Ain't never gonna change my tune

  4. I'm such an idiot. I need explanation of the Manchester United shameless plug joke.

    1. As an unsolicited side note, I don't see how it was a +10 comment. Don't get me wrong, its solid, better than the nonsense my unstarred ass throws against the wall. But still, +10?

    2. Right? That was definitely more like a +9 comment.

    3. I thought it deserved a +7, and being the 6th guy to +1 it, I figured I was safe. Echo landed #7, but those last 3 guys who laughed were pretty out of line.

    4. Anyone who gives a +1 based on the current number of +1s given....well, who would do that? Nobody does that. If you liked it, it's a +1. Personally, I didn't understand it because I didn't know about Wayne Rooney's hair plugs. But, it's funny. That's how it works.

    5. Wayne Rooney's hair plugs! Of course! /slaps head

      Anyway, I wouldn't ding a joke for getting too many +1's. If you like it, +1 it. Though once some joke I think got like 12 +1's and I'm pretty sure it was an ESPN headline rip-off. That annoyed me.

    6. I should rephrase, as I too assume that +1's are generally "awarded" independently as people see fit. Surprised 10 people found it +1 worthy. I find that interesting, so thought I'd throw it out there on a blog about comments. I'm sure you find my opinion boring as all hell.

  5. I followed the advice of this balog today and refrained from making a really bad joke involving Spider-Man and the country of Niger. The world is now a better place thanks to Marv Skeevy.

  6. If you ever want a good look at where PowWow is going to take us, head over to the bodybuilding article that is cross-posted on DS.

    I am absolutely frightened.

      God I wish I had that time back.

  7. Oof! Am I missing something here? Or is this just a straight shot to the gut?

    1. Straight shot to the gut.

  8. It doesn't matter what I say
    So long as I leave all my plus-ones
    Sometimes I know it's not my day
    Some inner truth or vast reflection
    But I've said nothing so far
    And I can keep it up for as long as it takes
    And I won't risk losing my star
    If I'm doing my job then I still will read all day

    Because the jokes make us laugh
    I am tellin' you I'm [dying]
    The jokes make us laugh
    They make the workday fly by

    There is something amiss
    I can sense ninjas near
    In fact I won't leave any comments
    'Til our star system disappears
    To confuse the issue I refer
    To familiar old jokes from long ago
    No matter how much we love our stars
    Powwow has come to fuel the trolls

    But still the jokes make us laugh
    I am tellin' you I'm [dying]
    The jokes make us laugh
    They make the workday fly by

    Suck it in suck it in suck it in
    If you're the Real Phin or Always Win
    Craggs will be there too with Powwow in
    And then begin to see
    What you're doing cause we know MKM is not UB
    It's so carefree it's silly we
    So desperately I sing to thee plus one!
    Sure we'll all still read the screeds and Sheed will cheer himself
    And I can't keep these feelings to myself
    I've tried well no in fact I lied
    Could be commenter suicide but I've got too much pride inside
    To hide or abide
    I'll do as I'll decide and drop plus ones until I've [died]
    And only then shall I abide this tide
    Of others' stupid views
    Or why they all disagree
    I wouldn't trust all of them who
    Try to burn every latest piece to the ground
    I've found I will not mess around
    Unless we stay then hey
    I will go on all day. Hear what I say
    I have some time to waste
    That's really all this was
    And when I'm feeling stuck and need a yuck
    I don't rely on luck because

    The jokes make us laugh
    I am tellin' you I'm [dying]
    The jokes make us laugh
    They make the workday fly by
