Usually they give themselves away by immediately making their first favorite, a comment they themselves made.

My mom is double-tufted, Scotch-Garded, and has a concealable tray table.
I call her "Nauga-Mommy".

Remain seated, please. Bring me some pancakes and a whore.
posted by loquacious at 11:14 PM on January 6, 2007


Dude.

DUDE.

DUUUDE.

I was like, "how come they deleted someone's profile and substituted the username with the deletion reason?" And then I was like, "wtf." And now I'm like, "hey, that's a clever name, kinda confusing when seen in the favorites list."

And then I laughed at metatalk and people with their weird thread things. Pancakes and recliners and whores? Shall I whip out the lawn chair and order some crepes and settle down with a Playboy since I can't afford a prostitute?


*takes a shot of rum and looks at the gray sea*

ARRRR. Life is too short for this tomfoolery.





I have no rum.

The movie's OK, just don't expect it to live up to the book.

Also, the sockpuppet in question is not me, just to be clear. Now if the other 50,000-odd members follow my lead, we'll have a very long thread that proves nothing of consequence.

There's a lady in spandex and gold sandals at the door, says she's here for a Mr Low Kwayshers. Shall I let her in? She's got maple syrup and a tickling stick, and a weird squint in her eye.

I had an email offering five dollars if I just went away. It was from user/1. YOU WILL NEVER CRUSH MY HEAD! While your offer remains so low. In other news: is BunnyCup having her period?

Well, when you say it like that, yeah, it sounds stupid.
posted by yhbc at 3:47 PM on January 7, 2007


No more stupid than at least 50% of threads that get started here so, at worst, you are average.

Well, he/she/it/they/energyentity paid the $5, right? I think that's all that matters in the long run. FIVE DOLLARS!

yhbc : Well, when you say it like that, yeah, it sounds stupid.

I just calls 'em like I sees 'em my man.

Thing is, I have a vested interest in Tpwdf: continuing to lurk and choose favorites. He/she chose one of mine to be part of the the 19 you remarked on, and I will defend to the death (or at least to the seriously verbally redressed) that person's right to continue to mark my comments as their favorites.

[On reading this post, my first guess was that it was a sock puppet, but in thinking about it, my best estimate puts it as a long time lurker who finally bought an account and is nervous about posting. Which if true, I would encourage him/her to look at my posting history: it took me years to 'come out of my shell'. People on Mefi can be bitchy and snarky and rude. But most of the time it's polite and reasonable discourse. I know Matt says the site is about the links, but I have always disagreed with that. The links are great, but I come here for the conversation. So, Tpwdf:, if you are lurking out there, don't be afraid to speak up.]

[I mean worst case scenario you say something really stupid and are called out... again, which gives you a great opportunity to flame out in a really loud an spectacular way.]
