We all know that there are some real interesting posts out there that can make for a serious laugh or at least a hearty chuckle, especially when they're quoted out of context. However, if you're going to highlight a real doozey of a humdinger or a mess of mangled logic, please show the original poster or target a minimum level of respect by leaving their name out of any quotes that can reasonably be interpreted as something other than congratulatory. Obviously that also includes not linking back to the original post in those cases. This thread is about having a laugh, not kicking people off the island.

Here's one example to get us started...

You know, it often pays to actually read a thread before posting a comment. It protects you from the pain and embarrassment of auto-pwnage.


As you can see, some of the best zingers still come from the old hands here. In this case I left off the name of the target because this quote is a bit on the harsh side even though it had me in stitches. Ouch!

And some more...

That had me going for a fair bit.

And when I've got pimples on my forehead, it almost looks like I'm growing a horn. Yeah I'd say I relate to Naota a lot.


Oh man, I could just keep this up forever.

Well, I'll give it a go, and present for your entertainment a bit of toilet humor.

In a discussion about the raving Naruto fans at her college,

I just thought she found a great way to express her dilemna. Thanks, aya_honda for making me laugh with that one.

Daxomni, I know that the quote you took from Abunai-sama was directed at me, but honestly, I didn't pay any attention Razz.

So you can put the target's name in it Razz

Never thought that actually I would get quoted here but... oh, well... glad to have made you laugh, ManOfRust. WinkSmile

I confess, this quote didn't come from this forum, but it's the kind of stuff that'll drive someone to drink... (All colors and sizing is authentic)
Quote:
LANGUAGE EXPLANATION:
I type the way I speek hunyah. I speak in broken Japanglish anoneh and I LIIIIIKE TO HOOOOOOOLD OUUUUUUT My VOOOOOWEEEELS... ... just for emphasis and extra brain bleedage. In this world of (hayakusugirune>!) fastly approaching adult-hood, why not savor the last bits of your random insanity .... lest you turn into one of those freaky 45 year old men who talks like an otaku.... and still wears his naruto shirts to work.. ,<;;-;;> THATS SCARRY!
No, the post is what's scary, and "hayakusugiru" should be "hayasugiru," I believe...

EDIT @ frentymon: これは女の子の言葉だよ Not too surprising, is it?

Yeah, "hayakusugiru" sounds really hen.

If this otoko wants to speak in Japanglish dake, he should at least write the Japanese words correctly to omoimasu...mattaku!

Well, that just comes to prove that I am a stone-cold evil woman Anime hyper... But I didn't mean to offend you. If I did, then please accept my sincere apologies *falls to her knees pleading for forgiveness*

It kind of pains me to admit that the green quoted post above does possess something resembling a point. Savor the last bits of your random insanity so you won't regret it later on? Nice idea.

The act seem almost satirical when the passage is deprived of its context!

Ok, the quote that stucked in my head for quite sometime belongs to Tony K and it was his answer to a thread called Is there gonna be more Fruits Basket?????

Tony K wrote:
Quote:
I am really tired of these "will there be more [whatever] anime?" threads. Just wait. If you can't, then go freeze yourself in criostasis for about 50 years. By then, you'll either get more of your Fruits Basket anime, or I'll be long gone from this site and not have to deal with this crap. It's a win/win situation.

The thread was locked (obviously) and I remember that it was at the beginning of my experience on this forum so I had two reactions. The first one: I was amused by his suggestion (criostasis Smile ) The second one: I got scared by the vehement way in which he ended this thread. (I spent since then quite some time on this forum but the fear hasn't left me. Embarassed )

Sorry, I was feeling a bit tense that day Anime smallmouth + sweatdrop. No real harm meant. But yeah, I've seen a lot of Berserk, Hellsing, Tenjou Tenge, Fruits Basket, Full Metal Panic!, Inu Yasha, and 12 Kingdoms continuation threads asking when the next season will come out.

In the special case of Hellsing, though, you have the OAVs now. While not everyone may have known at first, it does prove that a continuation or a new start from scratch can happen.

The point is that people need to learn to be more patient and accept things in life for what they are. If it happens, it happens. That's my philosophy, and that's why I always end up locking those types of threads. Again, I apologize if I scared you Wink.
