After seeing this post appear just now, are there other good recent examples of eponysterical posts or comments? The definition in the Mefi Wiki and Urban Dictionary, a 2007 Meta on the origin of the term which is a fun read, a 2005 Meta on such posts and comments and the old list compiled by scarabic.

I should probably give in to it and do some kind of FPP about butts one of these days.

Yeah, "Post Your Animal Month" is going to be a gold mine for eponysterical posts, so maybe hold off on a final judgment of "Best EVAR" for a bit.

Would someone like to attempt to climb a remote mountain in New Hampshire this winter, only to enter a life and death struggle for survival before being rescued by a pack of super-intelligent wolves? Because that's the only way I can think of for me to put together an eponysterical post that anyone but me would care about.

Proud of this one. DirtyOldTown hipped me to this article via MeMail and I posted it within minutes.

And bad puns.

Surely, there's a lion census of some kind out there?!!

I’m sure there is Fizz, but the struggle is between knowing who is telling the truth and who is lion on the forms.

List of people who aren't standing up or sitting right now?

I feel like I should make a post about either Portuguese colonialism or the McIlheny company, but I'm not really a subject matter expert on either so it would be more epony-forced than anything.

Still glad that I MeMailed hellojed to let them know they needed to get over to this April Fool's AskMe quick smart.

One recent example (and this might be a spoiler if you haven't seen the movie)... I was absolutely *delighted* when I saw the username at the end of this comment in the Captain Marvel FanFare thread.

This recent post about a fat cat by phatkitten is about as eponysterical as you can get. I love that it was phatkitten who made the post, given that it was such a popular subject on the interweb that lots of other mefites could have made it.

Pretty much anytime I participate is either eponysterical or contra-eponysterical.
¯\_(ツ)_/¯
