Never had a problem with running gags, or with anybody joking in a thread. 

 

Just pointed out - in this particular instance - that it was annoying to people anxious for news after a long offseason and looking in here for a real tweet to find a fake one essentially making the same joke that had been made a dozen times in the past 24 hours.  And obviously, I wasn't the only one who thought that.

 

You can keep whining and griping about it or you can get over it.  Your choice.

 

And heck, nobody says "Big Uglys" anymore.  "Hog Mollys" is the word of the day, which is fine with me.

 

Fug it I am going to chime in on the great controversy of the day!

 

Here is the thing, that is the nature of comedy in general.  There is no universal taste.  What is annoying to some people is still funny to others.

 

Some people think Jim Carrey is annoying others think he is hilarious.  Some think Adam Sandler is annoying other think he is brilliant.  Some people thought George Carlin was the smartest comedian in history other thought he was a jerk.  Some people even thought Richard Pryor was annoying (uptight white people).

 

Point being becoming the arbiter of what is funny or annoying is annoying in itself.  To me if you think it is funny you read the post and chuckle, if you think it is annoying you just move on to the next post.

The only 'arbiters' of anything here are the mods.

 

I gave my opinion (same as you've done here).  Others agreed.  Some didn't.  One guy got butthurt about it.

 

That's pretty much it.

True, but here is the difference.

 

Your opinion was like the guy sitting in the back of a room telling the comedian "You suck.  You are annoying.  Do some new jokes"  Then looking around for others  and saying "You agree with me right?"

 

Whereas my opinion is that even if he does suck should just keep it to yourself or quietly leave the room because others might be enjoying it.

Only comedian that is universally accepted is Larry David end of story.

Which - by the criteria you've set - equals you setting yourself up as the arbiter of who should or shouldn't express an opinion.  See the contradiction?

 

People come on here and give opinions.  Other people give opinions about those opinions.  That's just the nature of message boarding.

 

And if you look back at the original post () you'll see that's all I presented it as, my opinion.  Others chimed in agreement.

 

Like I said, it's just that simple.

No I don't see a contradiction.  I said you shouldn't be the arbiter of what is or is not funny.

 

Like I said, your opinion was like the guy in the back of the room telling a comedian "You are not funny you are annoying.  These jokes are old."
