After the one-liner thread started, I began wondering what is the greatest one-liner in the history of MeFi. Any nominations?

I was going to self nominate a one-liner of mine, but it's been replaced by a Cold Fusion error. That'll teach me to be arrogant, eh?

it's a three-liner, but right here!

And, though it may now seem to have suffered from overuse, the original oldie but goodie was a devastatingly brilliant put-down for its moment.

I will see you and raise: what was the most inspired multi-party riff?

Humbly offered generic example.

I've always though the "Spell, baby, spell" line from the "motherfucking DUH" thread was better.

Also, this one from y6y6y6: "I really get the idea that many here care, and many just enjoy spinning around with their dick out, spraying urine all over the place." It never fails to give me a chuckle.

Crap, is anyone else bookmarking these? It makes me feel kinda bad.

the "warblogs" comment is definitely one of the best ever, the classic "pancakes" has unfortunately been killed by pointless overuse (I'm guilty of it, too).

holgate's old "In your Arab-hating dreams" has a special place in my heart. Because the irony is, of course, that the Arab-hating dream sadly came true

And, if taglines count as one-liners, there's a lot of great ones

My all-time favorite favorite, followed very closely by


which really isn't a one-liner - it's a four-liner. But I love it anyway.

Oh. Oh dear.

Not a one liner, but one of my favorite memes-by-proxy which happens now and then:
"fishfucker, you have a good point."

I just love it when people get all serious and include some of the more trollish user names.

I remember someone ranting about how people will say things on the metafileter they would never, ever, ever say to someone in real which someone responded.

"Nigga what?"

Earlier cognate thread for your, um, enjoyment.

I second RJ Reynolds' nomination. It also wins best one word comment.

mcwetboy, that thread was nothing but a bunch of poo-flinging.

Everything past Coldchef's repeated admission makes me laugh to this day.

I know this is not a very funny one-liner by itself, but I every time I read this comment after the huge fight and Matt's scolding I crack up. Maybe it is because in my head I see it as: mathowie="Calvin's mom" and moz="Calvin after destroying the garage or some other mischief".

fjom, that whole thread is one of my favorites, but the one that caused it is even better—I'm desolated that it's no longer extant. Anybody have a copy?
posted by languagehat at 5:04 PM on March 14, 2003

This isn't a one liner, but the last few lines of Awol's comment had me laughing for days.

This comment by ColdChef at the top of the thread about rapper Ice-T's new ice cream brand triggered an actual spit-take of coffee on my iBook.
