Best Comments Ever, Volume 1

This blog is all about me. Even if nobody read it, it would still exist due to my pathological need to turn thoughts into words. However, the fact that you are reading this is a gravy-like bonus, and when you take the additional time to comment, well, that sort of interaction one of the best parts about this whole internet thing.
A lot of people don't pay attention to comments, but they should, because at least around here, the comments often upstage the crap I post. So I'm thrusting some of you into the spotlight. Here are some comments that made me laugh/cry/cringe recently.

In response to yesterday's Miley-centric post, Hey Lady! said...

I think the song is just infectious... like a disease, no one WANTS to catch the flu, but you know, you're at a party, a bunch of other people have it, next thing you know you're laying on the bathroom floor wishing for death. This song, same thing.

My Chia Pet is now dying, I am sad to report, but at least he elicited these responses. Katrina said...

That Homer Chia is really freaking me out. I can't handle what's going on on his face. Seriously, I couldn't stop staring at it -- it's like a train wreck. The image is seared into my brain.

And Jay Ferris said...

At least we now know what the serial rapist offspring of Homer Simpson and Swamp Thing would look like.

In the informative and well-recieved post Sixty Nine Reasons to Avoid Tall, Dark and Handsome, Evilflu said...

Oh man! My new work monitor now has diet coke spit all over it and people are staring at me like I'm caveman lady or something. Those are the bestest pictures ever...sort of :/ oh yeah, guess I should say something about tall guys now...tall guys are easy to tip over...and sometimes they are scary.

Finally, responding to the Body Worlds post, Rick "The Hat" Bman related this related story...

So, I have never been to a Body Worlds exhibit but I do have a good Body Worlds story. A few years back I worked for a manufacturing plant and one day a delivery truck making his normal delivery also unloaded a bit coffin size metal box onto our loading dock and then just left with no explanation as to what it was. The address label had been torn off so we had no idea what it was so we had to open it (pic of box).

Imagine our surprise to open the box and find body parts. Now we didn't know that it was part of the Body Worlds exhibit yet, we just knew it was a box of body parts. Now my boss decided that we have to keep it secure until we can find the rightful owner. Now, where do you think the most secure room in the building is? Why that would be the computer room, where I work.

So for two days I got to work with a giant box of body parts in my office. Keep in mind we had no idea what they were just that they were body parts. Luckily my boss was able to figure out that they were part of that exhibit and then find out which museum it was supposed to go to. I had never heard of the exhibit at that time so it just kind of freaked me out.

The best part though. One of the girls that worked there hadn't heard about it and came into my office and sees the box and asks what was in it. I told her she didn't want to know. She says "What is it, a body?" and I said "Well, it is parts of a body any way." She got kind of freaked and ran out of the office very quickly.

Wow.

If you have commented and were not featured here, don't fret; it is solely because there is limited space, and because you are not very interesting. Try again, because there will be a volume 2. I love you all.

Dude, nothing beats that "body parts in the box" story, wow....

And who comes to a blog and doesn't read the comments? Seeing what everyone else thinks about your post is part of the fun, otherwise it's like half the story. And writing your own comment is even better!

Glad my comment entertained you. I had that lame song stuck in my head the rest of the day after I read your post, and now I just thought about it again and the song is back...

Totally agree, but I think people like us are in the minority. Most people treat blogs like a newspaper; a passive, non-interactive wall of words. But me, it kinda drives me crazy to see anything on the web without comments. Even a newspaper.

YEEEAHHH YEAH YEAAA-HAAAH

Ginny said...

yeah #1 goes to body parts in a box.

I mean I've gotten boxes with underwear, a crack pipe, and pictures of someone with flesh eating bacteria but never body parts.

People send you strange things when you work in divorce law.

Better Rick than me I say. As much respect as I have for both the dead and fine art, had that happened to me, my Facebook page would have had a pretty amazing couple of days worth of pictures.

Candice said...

Oh man. That body part one...eeek.

Forest City Fashionista said...

I read the comments on your blog just because you have readers with very dark and twisted minds :)

I've always felt the same way about comments, they make me howl and are generally more interesting than anything I could come up with and generally, they're better written. Fucking commenters!

sarah said...

devious that you're now going to make as compete to post best blog comments and thus getting more blog comments which is all you really care about!

Phronk said...

Uh oh, Sarah's onto me. The question is, do I lower my comment count and censor her or let my plans be known? CHOICES.
