Comments Out of Context

Lots of good entries from this week’s contestants.

You may have noticed how heavy these lists always are with entries from the gang at Sadly, No!  There’s a reason for that – out of all the blogs where snarkmasters post, the Sadlies get by far the greatest numbers of comments.  There’s good quality to be found at alicublog, The Poor Man Institute, and tbogg’s (though with his sabbatical maybe not as much for this next month or so), but all of those blogs combined probably don’t get more than 25% the number of comments the Sadlies get.  And quite often, the guilty parties are the same – they also comment at Sadly, No!  This is not to suggest that quantity = quality.  As anyone who’s wasted the time to wade into one of Atrios’ comments threads in the past 2 or 3 years can tell you, there are lots of places where you can dig through a huge pile of shit and only occasionally turn up a pony.  At Sadly, No! you’re pretty much guaranteed of finding more than one pony in every thread – and not much shit; while at the other joints, due to the lower volume of comments, no digging at all is required – the ponies are just standing right out there in the open.  There just aren’t as many of them.

Comments sections are a large part of the reason why my favorite blogs ARE my favorites.  The corollary, of course, is that good & funny writing inspires good & funny comments, which is the other part of the reason my favorite blogs are my favorites.

So without further ado, here are some of the goodies from this past week:

Eh, they all come from California.

Now, if I could only get my computer to stop calling me “Dave”. Hello, not my name!

Yes, but would you stick your hands in to get the centipedes out the next day?

Well duh, why else would you throw the chickens in? What are you, some kind of pervert?

To this day, noone has seen goatse from the front.

The guy’s DENTIST wouldn’t need to see him from the front.

well … remember, Churchill, like Obama had an American momma, but instead of choosing our glorious and God-blessed (the right God, not some weird un-American God) nation he chose to stay with those Harrovian dickwhistles across the pond. Ungrateful, America-hating asshole.

America is like a factory that makes things.

Except that the pipes leak. And there’s no maintenance crew. And the lunchroom has a black and white TV. And what factory doesn’t make things?

And the owners of the factory lost interest in making things fifty years ago and now just want to sit around and masturbate with hundred-dollar bills.

WHAT THE HELL IS IT with these people referencing television every time they’re trying to make a point about the real world?

They’ve never forgiven Murphy Brown and will hound her until the network fires her.

Does Sarah Palin have new boobs?

No, same old fans as always.

I like to think I display my ignorance and childlike impatience every day. You know, it’s not just something to drag out during the holidays.

I’m not dead. I’m just pinin’ for the fjords.

Jesus is a prophet of Islam.

Yep. “Issa” is mentioned more than any other preceding prophet except Moses.

Most folks don’t realize the Moses was the one that talked God down from 50 prayers a day to five.

(must not write “jewed him down to five”, must not write “jewed him down to five”…)

Invading someone’s personal space (in particular, repeatedly and against their will) is actually simple assault, which is a misdemeanor.

Simple assault of a police officer, social worker, or elected official is a felony.

Also, hitting the Pope, even if it’s not hard enough to knock off his Pope hat, is an automatic excommunication.  

If the hat comes off, you get “double secret excommunicated”.

As always, thanks to this week’s contestants.  You do realize, don’t you, that you’re all going to burn in hell?

    Teh Sadlies are the snarkiest by far. It’s the only place I’d read all the posts in a 500+ comment thread.
