We recently had a FanPost in appreciation of The Credits — and deservedly so, for they consistently rock my world. We also recently saw a FanPost expressing how great this blog is, and indeed, the folks who manage this thing simply kick ass. We've also talked much about how great this community is, in terms of the quality of discussion here and the general scarcity of run-of-the-mill internet morons that can be found... well, everywhere else. This community truly is an intelligent and well-manered one, and I, for one, freakin' love it.
But I just have to take a moment to take my hat off to all the funny people around these parts. BXF (the lurker) and SCG (the snarker) come to mind, and PSLF can always be counted on for the sarcasm and innuendos — but there are a lot of you guys out there (apologies to the many who should be mentioned here but, mainly because of my terrible memory, are not — you know who you are).
I think it's a fairly recent development. Not, like, in the last few weeks, not that recent ... but I think that this is an element that has really developed over the course of this last season, especially the latter part.
The cat pictures. Actually, all the pictures... but especially the cat pictures. The inside jokes. The teasing back and forth, especially the recurring themes between specific people. The internet flirting. The "fail" comments (i.e., reply fail). The sarcasm — ohhhh, the sarcasm! The movie references. The "lrn2google" and "lrn2internet" comments. The "PAT RAILLY!" And yes, the consistent jabs at my inability to write anything remotely close to short.
And that's not even the half of it. You guys are HILARIOUS. I rarely participate in the hilarity, because I really am just not a very funny or witty person. Serious and insightful is what I do. Witty and clever? Not so much. So I don't participate much, but it cracks me up on a near-constant basis. I've always loved this place for the intelligent, high-level discussion. But more and more, lately, I love this place because every time I come here, I crack up incessantly. You guys are a freakin' riot.
So here's to you guys. Intelligent and classy is great — intelligent, classy, and funny? I love this blog. I love you guys.
