Your Not Even Close To Daily Comment Roundup

Hi friends, your old pal CJ here. How ya been?

I think we'd all agree it's been a real treat to see our good friend Miserable Shitehawk offering his insight in the balog comments today. Nice to see you buddy!

One thing he's consistently said is how time consuming the daily roundup was. It got me to thinking, how hard can it really be? So I decided to give it a go.

You get the idea.

Turns out it's pretty time consuming. I pretty much half-assed this post, and it still took over half an hour forty five minutes. So don't get your hopes up, this will most definitely not be a regular thing.

That said, your comments of the day:

Stev D's appearances are few and far between, but when he comes, it's worth the wait.

SavetoFavorites: DO keeping making comments like this. Shitehawk mentioned something today about a proliferation of recontextualizations (I didn't really read it, he's kind of a long-winded gas-bag), and it's great to see out-of-the-box formats.

That said, Hit Bull Win Steak showed us all that recontextualizations can always be done to perfection.

Guy Who I've Never Heard Of Until Today, aka MrCondensation, had a great play on the umpire posts in the spelling bee thread. Keep it up.

Also in the spelling bee post, Raysism made a funny. What isn't funny is that he's already bookmarked the comment under "hilarious."

But your day's winner was Steve_U (shocking, I know) for both his super Super Mario Brothers dig, and his fantastic joke in the Patrick Kane post. My favorite comments are often ones that manage to tell a little story in a few lines; this did so perfectly.

As for duds... take your pick. It looks like comment_ninja banned a few and moved at least 20 comments today, so a big +1 to him/them for help keeping the place clean.


  1. You son of a bitch, you'll be hearing from my team of lawyers.

    1. Yeah, your son's Trantolo & Trantolo, Personal Injury Specialists t-ball team isn't the kind of team you think it is.

      Hey, some guy asked us to contact you. Y'all hiring?

  2. What's amazing is that I was on the site for what seemed like the entire day, and I just now saw both of the Steve U comments.

    Stupid fucking teleconference. Why couldn't they have called when Phintastic was commenting?

      Actually, I am retarded.

    4. It's just this sort of cutting edge topical humor that will allow you to hold your position in the top 300 Deadspin commenters.

      Jeez guy, I've made two comments in the last two weeks.

  3. Good stuff. Well done.
