Probably just a BRAND NEW DAY in-joke, IronLizard. Nothing to see here, move it along, kind of thing.

(Oh. I would like to take this opportunity to shoot dersins in the face with a bazooka, as per an earlier request. So you're welcome. BOOM.)

The reflection in Spidey's eyes is obviously mathowie wearing a fake mustache. Keep up people!

It's all fun and games until then, of course.

I would give you a hint but it wouldn't be....prudent.

is this mefi-related b/c there are a disturbing number of comic book nerds that lurk here? b/c otherwise, you've lost me.

This picture doesn't have anything to do with 'stiffer penalties' does it?

Perverts.

Secret identity: check.

Long history of grudges: check.

Spends a lot of time on the web: check.

Spars with venom: check.

See, he's just like us!

it's mefi-related because BRAND NEW DAY gets trotted out occasionally as a sort of past-mefi-misdeeds-are-forgiven initiative. there's a great photo out there involving Matt and Chariman Mao accompanying this

Brand New Day is euphemism. It's both a joke and a guideline.
posted by Dave Faris at 2:42 PM on June 15, 2007


Is this a metaphorical brand new day, or a viking brand new day?

Oh, so this is about dios (replace with whatever controversial user name you like), then. Explains everything, thanks.

I believe COBRA! refers to this.

I'm pretty sure that's a picture of Disgruntled Mefi User #62583 taking out the admin garbage, gangsta style. The fact that he's wearing a spidey mask is just icing on the cake.

I would like to take this opportunity to shoot dersins in the face with a bazooka,

FUCKING FINALLY!

Then again, it also dovetails well into Effigy2000's recently posted final episode of The Adventures of Agent Howie.

If Brand New Day means giving mefites guns, I'm all for this.

I read on the internets that some thread contain poo. Is this true? If so, what proportion of threads contain poo?

Those fingers around the gun don't look like Spidey's to me.

My prediction is that it is a deliberate misrepresentation--someone is probably going to shoot himself and Spidey's intervening.

wait... didn't it say "BRAND NAME DAY"?

You can turn the clock to zero, honey
I'll sell the stock, we'll spend all the money
We're starting up a brand new day

Turn the clock all the way back
I wonder if she'll take me back
I'm thinking in a brand new way

Turn the clock to zero, sister
You'll never know how much I missed her
Starting up a brand new day

Turn the clock to zero, boss
The river's wide, we'll swim across
Started up a brand new day

oh and I can feel the mods' enfrazzlement from here. A few more threads like these, and who KNOWS what could happen. WHY is this happening? Is it planetary alignment? Are we wobbling more these days? procession? MOON? (Waxingorwaning!?) Solar flares? The very earth heaving and shuddering? Ley lines? I DON'T KNOW!

Yes I just coined "enfrazzlement." (well, on reflection, there were 7 goog hits for it. It's still mine.)

I just feel like things are off-kilter around here for the past few days, but BOY DO I LIKE IT!
