Chatfilter: Which is prettier, rainbows or unicorns?
posted by planetkyoto to Etiquette/Policy at 10:12 AM (52 comments total)

well i love rainbows but my friend ashley has them like all over her room and even on the cieling and stuff and shes so lame nowadays and her boyfriend steve alwyas has a runny nose so i guess id have to say unicorns becuase i always dream of having a pony and one with a horn that could fly would be sort of neat i guess.

Which is more annoying: ChatFilter, or MetaTalk threads complaining about ChatFilter?

While Kwantsar makes a good argument for unicorns, I think we'd all agree that if we took the aggregate of all rainbows and compared them to all the unicorns, the average prettiness of the rainbows would be greater than the average prettiness of the unicorns. This is because while you can have an ugly unicorn, you will never find an ugly rainbow.

I'm gonna have to go with the rainbows, chuck.

My top three rainbows and unicorns, in no particular order: D.H. Lawrence's The Rainbow, Peter Beagle's The Last Unicorn, and "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" as sung by my friend Kris at her concert last fall.

Ummm . . . I'll agree.

Rainicorns. It's always better to get the chocolate in the peanutbutter. On Preview: filmgoerjuan, that's a pegarainicornisus which is the rarest ever and they have powers, MAGIC powers. On Preview Preview: Just don't miss jonmc, the pegarainicornisus lists its hobbies as sparkling, twinkling, being cute and forcible horn sodomy.

AskMe very explicitly tells you not to post metafilter-related questions.

Fly? No, no. That's a (hornless) Pegasus. The Pegasus is a good thing to have in this game...



Oh no, BRIGANDS!

What was the deleted question? My ugly unicorn will cry if he doesn't find out.
posted by CunningLinguist at 11:14 AM on May 23, 2005


The question was something like: "Name your 3 favorite desert island websites for surfing on a desert island no forget the desert island part just your top 3 websites please."
posted by nobody at 11:17 AM on May 23, 2005


The deleted question was:

What are your top 3 websites not including MeFi. Like if you were stuck on a desert island and you could only bring 3 websites, what would they be and why?

Witty, I LOVED the Dark Tower game except I kept getting the plague whenever I played and could never find a healer.

I've been thinking about getting a dolphinplasty. Why don't you get a unicornplasty, Krrrlson, and we can compete.

jonmc: Rainbow without Dio? Joe Lynn Turner? Gah.

Actually, I'm a Graham Bonnett, man, mahself*, but "Can't Happen Here," is a killer song, as is "Stone Cold." But Ronnie The Dwarf gets props from me, too.

*his "All Night Long" probably has him on the Feminist Hit List for life, but it's a damed rockin' peice of testosterone poisoning.

I hate rainbows. You'll just be sitting there, minding your own business, and they'll come marching in, and crawl up your leg, and start biting the inside of your ass, and you'll be all like, "Hey. Get out of my ass you stupid rainbows."

Thank you, chrismear, for the link to that comic. Never seen it before, but I just wasted about an hour of "work" time reading through the archives.

Grrrrr.... chrismear already posted the PBF strip I was going to. But I knew there was also a rainbow one.

unicorn with pancakes

Can a rainbow do this?
posted by taz at 2:05 AM on May 24, 2005


nobody, an ugly unicorn? Are you insane? Unicorns are beautiful, magical horses by definition. If you say an ugly unicorn then it wasn't a unicorn. Now, on the other hand, I've seen some pretty lacklustre rainbows over LA.

see? Unicorns promote violence which ends up affecting our children...they see Unicorns and then they start playing them video games and playing their dungeons and dragons...

Taz- Whassit doing? It looks like it's getting ready to make fry cakes. Is that a carny unicorn?

You, sir or madame, are a nazi. For you to deny the unicorn-humanity of those of us less fortunate in the beauty department than your obviously-anorexic hooved-and-horned friends is simply despicable. If there were a way to never have to see a post from nixerman again, I would certainly make use of such a feature.

The question cannot be answered in its current form since it's grammatically incorrect. It should be "which are prettier."
posted by anapestic at 11:35 AM on May 24, 2005


It should be "which are prettier."

Oh. Then would it be okay to bring it over to AskMe?
posted by nobody at 12:16 PM on May 24, 2005


No, but it would be an abomination on one count instead of on two.

Hands of Manos! Way to take it to that level.

Unicorns are better because Rainbows are FAKE! When's the last time you touched a rainbow? That's right never.
