Re: @ Mike Re: Re: Enough April fools rubbish
I realise that my eloquent and detailed breakdown of Andrew Thomas' posting may have been too subtle for you to get, but fundamentally just because a joke was done before doesn't stop it being funny ever again. Anybody who complains about someone who is trying to make life a bit lighter is basically a twat, this is perhaps a little bit general, but just because you don't find something funny it doesn't mean that everybody thinks it's unfunny, I'd rather hear 1 funny joke and 99 not very funny jokes than no jokes at all, maybe it's just me, but life is just too short to be that miserable.
Personally I think it would be better if you find somthing funny than unfunny, if you don't , you don't, but to actually go out of your way to winge that you don't find it funny is a special type of sad.
If you think my opinion makes me a twat because I enjoy the efforts that people put in to raise a smile, and am disappointed by pointlessly negative people then that's cool by me, I suspect I'd rather be me than you.
Okay - I got all but the Comcast one, but then I ddn't read it either. I also deliberately played the AF card on at least one article that wasn't. I gotta admit though, there was also an article or two that I believed wrongly to be AF's and weren't. Another double shot of sceptism anyone?
@ Scott Earl
"If you post a hoax on the internet, can you remember Google will index it and it's only funny one day a year? The rest of the year, you're just a lying twat."
That is so massively massively profound.
I salute your brother, sir
