Not appreciated for what you know

Postby ntw3001 » Fri Jul 21, 2006 7:32 am

This comic pleased me no end, because it deals carefully and humanely with a subject close to my heart: People who constantly quote Monty Python (or the Simpsons) as a replacement for a real sense of humour getting what they justly deserve.

I knew a guy in school who spoke only in Austin Powers and Simpsons quotes. I talked to him quite a lot, and at one point I couldn't remember anything he'd said in two or three weeks that wasn't a quote. I was unhappy with him.

That actually reminds me of all that metaphorical language stuff.

I'm not really a fan of comedy catch phrases. At first I liked The Fast Show along with everyone else, but eventually it was just one giant annoyance that wanted to hurt my life. That's my problem with most modern sketch comedy: it actually sets out to be repeated incessantly by people. You know what would be better than that? Dying a thousand times.

This one is great. Seriously one of the best on the front page.

Anyways, I like to ripoff actual comedians. They rip each other off continually, so I don't feel bad. And most people don't watch as much stand up as me, so they don't recognize anything.

I also like to rape women over 60 with a meat cleaver.

That interesting article lead to this interesting article. It's funny, really. My mom only speaks Christianese. I don't think she remembers English at all.

Anyways, this comic=win. Not only because it's a stevenf, but because I, too, loathe those who constantly quote movies. And not just movies. I hate people who quote one movie, nonstop. Those are the worst people.

Oh, I've done it in the privacy of my own home. I've done it with my friends. But, for the sake of others, please do not do it in public. It's sad when the only laugh people think they can get out of others is by quoting Napoleon Dynamite.

At the sacrifice of the usual form, this comic delivers greatly.

Minus points for not quoting a Gumby, however.

I was initially going to link to that one (under the name "Bible-speak"), but I decided it would be a bit confusing.

This one made me smile, which causes me to rate it highly. StevenF is officially back in an invincible way.

Even Monty Python gets old. Well, when it isn't really Monty Python. The last panel reminded me of PBF, for some reason. Excellent comic. I think you're back in the game.

That was bugging me so I dug the DVD out. You're thinking of "'tis but a scratch." The quote seems to simply be "Just a flesh wound," with an implicit "it's". So there.

I don't quote it all the time, though!

I worked with a friend who made me watch the Holy Grail.

Will I get killed for saying I didn't find it hysterical? Maybe.

What I found funny were a select few lines of the movie.

If you didn't laugh at:

-The cow-a-pult
-The killer Rabbit
-The cartoontist's inexplicable heart attack

You are a heartless, soulless wench.

I...I found the coconuts migrating bit rather funny. Oh, and those parts too. But, yeah.

If I hadn't just come home from a six hour shift of extensively cleaning the department and sweeping out ovens, I'd run around and scream. Bottlecap, you made me so happy. Welcome back (?) sir. May I kiss your ring?
