Go Directly To Level 8.
posted by y2karl at 7:55 AM on May 18, 2003


I'm willing to bet that it's just a case of forgotten identity. It happens all the time. I walk into a house and look around and say to myself "Hey this is some snappy place some sombitch has here". I wonder around for a while and it hits me that it's my place. I'm sure that's what happen here.

I just edited that out. It's far from the first time that's happened before, which is pretty surprising to me since it seems like a blatant self-link.

How often do you hear the following in conversation?

Great catch, quonsie.

And good call, y2k! (Hoist, or at least sentenced, by his own petard):

Good one quonsar.

No comments are available on his self link [site], so he wants feedback from, hey, lookit that!

It's ok, he does it on the self linked site to his own company [more self links], however, under the heading "links", there is only a link of one, to his own company site.

That's focused? It should be singular.

The word, not the action.

Next stop, Level 10.

I sometime do the opposite, where I'm telling a story about something I did or said that was funny, but attribute it to some-made-up-person so it doesn't sound like I'm saying "listen to this funny thing I said!" which is, in fact, exactly what I'm saying.

"... and then my co-worker, um, Mikel, said 'rectum! It nearly killed 'im!' Ah hah hah hah! Holy shit my co-worker Mike is funny. Hah hah! Isn't he?! Isn't my coworker Mark funny?! I mean Mike! Don't you think? That's he's funny?!"

But, I mean, we all do that.

Heh heh! Of course we do! We all do that! Oh, man, that is so true!!!

whoa. Did I miss something? Why does Shadowkeeper get a goldstar??

yes
posted by ginz at 1:20 PM on May 19, 2003


Interesting. Shadowkeeper's gold star does not appear in preview mode (presumably stan chin's doesn't either - they're the only two "mattie's boys" who've been given stars so far, afaik).

This is probably related to the same bug feature that makes the usernames (instead of the usernumbers) show up in preview mode as well.
posted by yhbc at 1:22 PM on May 19, 2003


p.s. But slightly less than the goldstar people.

I want a gold star too. damnit I'm making my own!

Uh oh, KnitWit, if there's one thing that'll make you lose a gold star, it's doing that.

But enough about me. Lets talk about you: How do you feel about me?
posted by blue_beetle at 2:06 PM on May 19, 2003


soyjoy...

I figured as much, but if we all start indiscriminatly adding and subtracting our stars eventually we'll all go back to being regular sneetchs.

Wait, no. That wasn't the moral was it?
posted by KnitWit at 2:28 PM on May 19, 2003


What I want to know is, are there a finite number of stars to work with? Is it a constant amount? If so, where does Matt keep all the extras?

I hope this doesn't somehow loop back to codpieces.

i've got a photo somewhere of me in my star-shaped codpiece . . . hold on . . .

Quonsar is complaining about someone's behaviour?

that's it, sennoma, go for the easy quip, i always do. quonsar is not complaining. quonsar is being a good little meficop. quonsar never links his sites on the front page. why should fpatrick?

i forgot the "!" after "i always do". it kinda puts a whole other slant on it!

posted by trharlan at 11:20 AM on May 20, 2003


it was a photoshop job that he did a while back, the blue and the gray coming together to form a corner into which bad mefites could be sent for a time out. browsing shadowkeepers recent comments should turn it up for you, i can't do that right now since the boss approacheth...

Choose one:

(a) for consistently producing amusing and interesting material on Defective Yeti.

(b) for making fun of Miguel in a clever way, without being really nasty about it. (note to quonsar - it was stan chin that did the photoshop you describe, and so earned the 1st golden star).

(c) for kissing Matt's rosy red bike-riding
