Next time, can we discuss the FPP and not the via link?

Out of 13 comments in that thread, I count only 3 (including mine) that are even peripherally about the FPP. The rest are about Memepool. If Memepool returning from hiatus is so important, then maybe there should've been an FPP about it? Oh wait, there already was.

Oh shit, Memepool's back? Thanks, I loved that site!

I'm guessing it'll settle down into proper indie gaming chatter, but I feel you, and, yeah, it's nice when threads don't swerve hard onto some tangent like that.

On the other hand, in terms of web property resurrections memepool being back (and more back than it apparently was when there was a post about it) is kind of like when you go to a restaurant and you order some toast and the waiter who took your order is totally swamped so the line cook brings your toast out to you and you're like "oh hey, thanks" but then you do a double take and you're all "wait, you're literally Jesus Christ." And your friends at the table are like "holy shit, Jesus motherfuckin' Christ, second coming, holy BALLS man", and then the toast ends up getting cold.

cortex, my indignation is thus mollified, by toast.

I'm not a gamer, so the meme pool thing really was
more interesting to me.
Sometimes the post just does what the post wants to do.

cortex is actually really familiar with this happening, it is in part why he cut his hair.

As someone who cares more about Terry Cavanagh and indie games than whether or not memepool's back,

...I knew about his free indie games site before I knew that memepool was back as anything other than a one off dare post. So that's my excuse.

via (!) memepool [previously].

This meta would have more of a point if the "(!)" and "[previously]" weren't in there. That at the very least marks it as a subtopic.

This is why via links are dumb.

This is why via links are awesome.

cortex writes "'holy shit, Jesus motherfuckin" Christ,"

My understanding is their wasn't any actual fucking from any of the trinity; the conception being miraculous and Mary being a virgin until after his birth.

Childbirth - what a way to lose your virginity.

My posts have been MeTa'd twice this week: once for freaking people out with Charles Manson, who thought he was Jesus, and once for freaking people out with Memepool, which cortex thinks is Jesus.

COINCIDENCE?

Well well. Maybe I'm Jesus.

Whoa cool thanks!

I'm spacey enough that I didn't put it all together until just now either.

It just happens, neckro; I did a FPP post once about something that the Tate museum in London was doing, but about 75% of all the comments were puns about "taters".

I just took it as a subtle sign that "maybe this thing I did an FPP about wasn't as interesting as I thought."

Metafilter: breathless, ham-fisted, and astonishing. Taterburger. (]}

My phone converted "fisted" into "dusted." Mmmm, ham dust...
