Wins for the Weekend

previous post: More Fantastic Fans



  1. When I type fast, I make tiny spelling mistakes. So sue me, I’m not killing myself over it even if a stranger did register themselves on a site just to tell me to do so. And I don’t see how you can talk with a name like “bunbags” anyway. I wasn’t on any form of horse just amused by what appeared to me to be a double mistake, a correction of something I read to be right first time.

    Perhaps I was taught wrong, but if for all your life you were taught the world was flat, how could you believe any different?

    I just found it amusing when it seemed like someone corrected something with no need to. It turned into an argument. Nobody really cares except some douche who had to hop off their own high horse to register for the sheer sake of posting a slanderous and hate filled message. I made an honest mistake, but at least I’m not a complete loser πŸ™‚ I thank you and goodnight

  2. Jenivere, I know you’re not talking only to me, but the only people I blame are the teachers who teach the incorrectness, not the students. They’re the ones who should know better.

    I have to admit, though, that I found it hilarious that someone actually made the effort to register simply to write out a douchey diatribe.

  3. Dorothy Mantooth

    I personaly feel that it should be, ‘[Name] and shut the fuck up no-one cares’. Thanks.

  4. For once, I laughed because I found them genuinely funny, not because of how pathetic they were.
    Good on ya, lamebook!

  5. I’m having a most pleasurable geekgasm over the grammar arguments! I, for one, actually ENJOY seeing corrections of public displays of poor grammar.

    It seems to me that if good grades in school were not enough motivation to learn correct use of one’s native language, then perhaps public shaming, and repeated correction by annoyed, snarky strangers will do the trick. That is, if one has not already bothered to reach out into the learning opportunities the interets can freely provide.

    Additionally, I believe the real humor on this site now comes from the comments, and it’s widely accepted that a successful entertainer must generally be smarter than their audience.

    So, in conclusion I say if you a) complain about lamebook not being funny any longer, or b) can’t use proper grammar and spelling you should GTFO. Small mistakes are fine, and usually ignored. Egregious ones are like blood in the water.

    PS @DivineMonkeyTrigger, @Soup, @EmKitteh, @bunbags, and ESPECIALLY @MightyMorphineShowerStranger
    I adore you with a deep, soulless pseudo affection that could only be found in this one-dimensional, uber-judgmental cyber world. Carry on, you magnificent sons of bitches!

    PPS Shouldn’t have had that 3rd Bloody Mary at brunch before perusing the lamebook. Seems to have made me a bit loquacious.

  6. Is it only acceptable to take the effort to register if you plan on being douchey on a regular basis? Some people just don’t have that kind of time!!

  7. @Miss Sehgas, is it okay if I only fill one of your two criteria? Because I don’t know what the hell this comments argument is about, I didn’t bother to read it, but it bored me half to death.

  8. Chinchillazilla

    Jenivere certainly taught I a lesson about grammar.

  9. Hmmm, if you were always taught that the earth was flat, how could you believe any different. Well, there were these guys called Aristotle, Pythagoras, Copernicus and others who were taught that the earth was flat but they used their brains to figure out the contrary, so I guess that argument is moot. Just saying.

    @Miss Shegas

    Thankyou. I adore adoration, whatever form it takes.

  10. @Jenivere and soulman — FAIL! (Especially soulman.)

    Thanks, emkitteh, for the validation.

    Anna and Maya are the objects in that sentence, therefore “me” would be correct, not “I.” If Maya wasn’t there, and the man made the sexual comment to Anna, alone, the sentence would not be “random guy to I.” No, it would be “random guy to ME.”

    Jenivere, I’m glad you addressed how the language has become so twisted, because this is precisely why so many people think “I” is to be used no matter the context. WhenEVER the first person is the object, the correct term is me. (“Myself” is the exception.)

    soulman, you attempt to put me in my place, but your attempt is, again, a fail, and just made you look stupid.

  11. Miss Shegas: Why don’t YOU GTFO? We’re just having fun here. Wow.

  12. Fuck me, myself and I. I’m with you, Mr. B. Hobo.

  13. Dizzy_Ballerina

    heeeyyyy!!! Whose underwear is up their butt? Not mine cuz I am not wearing any!!!!!!

  14. None of them were funny 2 me…ugh I should REALLY shoot myself for waiting all day to use the computer for these bogus posts.

  15. Gussy, Scarlet, Ashley, and Ted.
    Get together, fuck each other’s brains out, and put an end to all your pathetic personal pity parties ok.
    And that’s an order!

  16. Maybe that was the wrong analogy…perhaps it’s more realistic to say that if you were taught to end every sentence with the word “arse”, and corrected any time you didn’t, you wouldn’t know any better but to everyone else you would still be talking a load of arse.

    I bid thee all a good morrow.

  17. Me giv up. me akchully dunt giv a tos bout gramer newayZZ.

    I did just realise, however, that to start a sentence “Random guy to…” is probably not that grammatically correct either.

  18. I take that last comment back after re-reading the initial post (just shows how far from the topic in hand we actually are).

  19. Jenivere – when I moved on to A level English I was taught that “so and so and I” is incorrect due to the object and subject mentioned earlier. When I tried to explain this to my parents I was told without a shadow of a doubt that I was wrong as they’d been taught that it was right. I have no idea which one is really right but in my bones I feel that “Maya and I” is wrong, it just feels very clumsy to say. That said…I failed my English A level.

    Ginger jokes aren’t funny, really

  20. “Maya and I”. Who is this girl? Master Joda?

  21. Dukey Smoothy Buns

    you got ur wish. I’ve been reading this site for months and never joined, but “digressive donkey balls” was the straw that broke the camel’s back.
    BTW I think all these are wins except the black powers one.

    And yes @Miss Shegas I also believe the true wins on this site are the comments.

  22. Jenivere has a massive bucket fanny.

  23. poor gingers.

  24. @35 danetta

    “@ Donnie Brasco

    β€œLast time i checked, the world had more important issues,” said the LAMEBOOK poster.” That’s what I thought! πŸ˜€
    Thank God, DB took time out of his very busy schedule of dealing with the world’s important issues to give us this little treat…

    @15 Triceratops

    I think so, too…

  25. I have to wonder if it’s really any more trivial to care about proper grammar than it is to be posting on lamebook to begin with. World’s important issues be damned! πŸ˜‰

  26. I want to go to happy hour with Ted’s friends! It sounds like it would be a blast!

  27. Jenivere and soulman certainly taught chinchillazilla and I a lesson about grammar.

  28. DivineMonkeyTrigger

    Dukey Smoothy Buns, you made my day. Thank you, this is true affirmation (No offence Shegas, looks like we’re mutually in each other’s cool books).

    I personally thought the hyper pretentious Seneca quote would have been the tonne of straw that broke the llama’s hump and stirred the masses into a cyber lynching, but NO way was i gonna bother with getting into grammar wars. (Did I spell gonna right…? Anyone!?)


  29. lol

  30. DivineMonkeyTrigger

    malteaser. You really want to be called a toolbelt, but I won’t sate your masochistic need to troll and cop abuse. I suggest you ought hang out on the wrong side of a glory hole, should muffle your incessant “laughing out loud” disorder.

    I’m last. Got it?

    (Bored at work)


  31. Not any more.

  32. DivineMonkeyTrigger

    Damn, that’s cheeky. Next time shanar, next time…
    My friend rang me to tell me I’d been knocked off the bottom spot.

    This one’s for you Jord!
    Turns out it’s easier to be first.
