    @Bulldog

    Given the choice between a Lord Slums invite to England, or an invite to Katy’s aforementioned party, I think you still win my friend.

  2. it was a reference to all that wood-handling…

    which makes comments’ soundbite all the funnier 😀

    bulldog i could never have a cup of tea with you, it’d have to be a beer!

    night all. wonder what yoink’s dreaming of…?

    Dunno Lord, but I’m betting it would need translation to understand.

  4. Comments, without a doubt, I’d rather be at Katy’s party… or on the beach applying tanning oil.

    And, Slums, I do hope you have a good night, I’ll try to avoid splinters.

  5. [I registered to leave a single, albeit long, comment]

    I cannot believe that all of you supposed intellectuals and self-appointed keepers of the English language are too intoxicated by your own pseudo superiority to see past your damn noses. 

    Yoink is brilliant! He has got you by a leash (or cheese wire, whatever he may wish to call it). If, in fact, you are as enlightened as you propose to be (“I took two years of Mandarin.”, give me a fucking break!), you would realize that he knows exactly what he is doing and his thinly veiled genius often betrays him through his logic and colorful details of his comments. His imagination boggles the mind and I, for one, am a big fan. Remember that language is an invention and Yoink understands and exploits this fact and in the process, he makes you look like fools for caring so damn much. So what if it requires a double take to get his point? To me, he is not unlike Nabokov. Try to read Lolita just once and pretend to understand the condensed brilliance of Nabokov’s sentence structure.

    Kids, this could also be Banksy among you. Lamebook’s patrons could be nothing but subjects of his own little social experiment into the fascinating phenomenon of website “commentators”.   

    Or at the very least (if Yoink turns out to be what he seems to be), I would like to think that he is like a fragmented version of John Kennedy Tool’s infamous protagonist, Ignatius Reilly. All of you (perhaps including yours truly) are indeed a Confederacy of Dunces.

  6. Hahahaa! Comments, very funny finding something like that to apply to the situation HA!

    So, Bulldog, you handle lots of wood as well? I’ve been told I can handle some wood as well 😉

    Slums, I want a beer too! Plus, I’ve only had bangers and mash in Hong Kong. I want it in England dammit. And I think yoinks dreaming of making coffins, pelvin frustin’ gravel and MJ. Somehow, I think he’s enjoying it too. Hmmm.

  7. Katy, I usually just get the wood ready for delivery. 😉

    And, onceblind, you can’t see it, but I’m standing and just applauding you. While you can never be accused of knowing your audience, you certainly make a compelling audience. I just wish members of the Nobel committee read the comments section on Lamebook.

  8. @onceblind – If you are going to call out a specific comment of mine to call bullshit on I would consider the fact that it could be true, seeing how you don’t know me. My father is an expat who has lived in Hong Kong for the past 8 years with his Chinese wife, and my two half brothers. I found it difficult to communicate with her, and my half brothers are shy speaking in English, so I took two years of Mandarin at university so when I go to visit for the one month a year I always do, for the past 8 years, I can better communicate and not be the stereotypical American tourist. So, please, give me a fucking break 😀

  9. oops… compelling argument, not compelling audience. You literally blew my mind with your tripe.

    Or it could have just been the fact that I was distracted by naughty thoughts about Katypants.

    I would love to see a conversation between yoink and onceblind.

    Sorry guys I had to leave, I was watching Larry King and apparently he is quitting soon.

  11. Anyhow, Bulldog, how’s this evening treating you? It’s hot as a mother here. I imagine it’s worse in GA 🙁

  12. Well, it’s just delightful in the air conditioning, but otherwise it’s rather brutal. 😉 The baseball team is getting their asses kicked, so I’m instead partaking in one of your favorite pasttimes and getting some ideas for our movie. 😉 How are things in the great northeast?

  13. Buh, same here. AC is needed. The heat is supposed to break tomorrow and go back down to the 70s, but recently it’s been in the high 90s and it’s just too much. And now that you mention that, I haven’t even partaken yet today in said pasttime! I’m going to have some dreams to speak by the morning if I don’t get to it! Hahaha! Any ideas in particular?

  14. mmmmhmmm. I’m going to have to find an Air Force flight suit. 😉

  15. Onceblind, as soon as you come off your high horse, you should read through yoink’s posts again. Apply some of the same scrutiny to him as you have the rest of the posters on this board. You should quickly come to the same conclusion that I have: yoink is actually Oliver Twist!
    Yes, it’s hard to believe that the character could actually become real. However, I think dozens of years of pseudo-superiority speeches like yours have given breath and blood to the little guy. Now he lurks Lamebook with his treatises expounding upon what he “finks” about “fings”, all in an attempt to cull you and your ilk out of the woodwork.
    I’ll be blaming you when Oliver “yoink” Twist starts to use computer parts to become a corporeal entity and kill us all.

  16. Ughhhh, don’t even get me started… I met the Thunderbirds this year at the Airshow… and deargodjesus… those dark blue skin tight flight suits are… ummmm… I suppose I am saying that I reaallly like that idea 😀

  17. @onceblind: If you want to call everyone out, and stand on your soapbox proclaiming your superiority to all through your literary knowledge, at least spell the author’s name correctly. John Kennedy Toole (with an E at the end) did grace us with the brilliant novel, “A Confederacy of Dunces”, before his untimely death, so you could at least try to honor his memory by spelling his damn name right.

    Oy vey!

  18. I’m just full of good ideas. I’m gonna have to go crash, though, I’ve had about four hours of sleep in the last two days. I hope you get to partake, but enjoy the dreams if you don’t. 😉

  19. Will do 😉 have a lovely night <3

  20. @160: Yes! That conversation would be probably the most epic dialogue yet written.

    “yoink, you are a man like no other, and I must bow to your subtle intellect.”

    “yeh, fanks oncblined. me an my dick r bof hapy you lik us, i fink. we lik u 2.”

    I’m not as good as alordslums at this sort of thing, but I do try 🙁

  21. 😉 g’nite

  22. Dukey Smoothy Buns

    Lol Master prop, tell me you are a chick like I think you are, otherwise it will be really hard for us to justify the massive boner I have from #170

  23. Why yes, I am, haha. No worries Dukey, you’re not cybergay.

  24. BEST COMMENTS THREAD EVER!!!!!

    brilliant repartee from everyone.

    Though it makes me sad too, because J’s comment about the future is an incredibly brilliant post the likes of which LB doesn’t like to put up very often, and it did not get the attention it truly deserved.

  25. Slippyslappy, we were all so awed by J. That we could only profess our love in the simplest way possible. I and love and you. It was a total geek boner moment that inspired many, and saying anything more would take away from the blissfullness that it was, and so we moved on over to yoinkitopia and had our shits and giggles talking lumber, getting lost in translation, and whether or not he is secretly Oliver Twist. This thread will forever be sacred in our hearts and our nights will be filled with wet dreams of happiness until tomorrow when reality sinks in and we don’t have our own little special child to convince them that they are indeed, from the future. It was a good day in human history, goodnight.

  26. I know I’m joining this thread super late, but I just had to comment that if I wasn’t already married I would totally marry J. and help him pull off the most epic prank ever! That’s just pure gold!!

  27. oncebilnd u sound lyk a r8 nobhed!!

    if you were to check posts from the last couple of days, you will find several people speculating on the nature of, and declaring the existence of, yoink’s genius.

    yoink is counter-counter-culture. he is the intellectual coffee whiff on a misty morning of the mind. he is a supreme carpenter of the spirit. and yes, i’m pretty sure he occasionally does have a laugh at our expense!

    oh, and onceblind, congratulations on name-dropping lolita and confederacy of dunces, and making yourself seem like the biggest and most brattish first year english/politics student ever! it fair made me chuckle!

    remember what hume said – we proceed from the impression to the idea. you can’t just make ideas up in your desperate bid to make an impression. 😉

    “loooool il mak the cofin wiv a chimeny for ur dick so evryone can be in shok wen thy see ya cofin go past wiv a wood cock on it loooooooool”

    Translation:
    “Lol I will make a coffin with a chimney for your dick so evereyone can be in shock when they see your coffin go past with a wood cock on it lol”

  29. J is my fricking hero, and I am going to re-post that comment for all my friends with their newborns, to encourage them to do the same…. How AWESOME would that be! 🙂 hahahahahaha I am still giggling!!!!

  30. Yeay for Yoinks Translator!! I can’t wait to see you in action once yoink gets on here after his long day of carpentering! 😀

  31. I have an almost-4-month-old son, I sooo need to show this to my husband! I can’t believe I didn’t think of this sooner, I must have been blinded by J’s genius!!

  32. Get’em while they’re young Mama_Corn. Get’em while they’re young, mwuahahahaha.

    Yay for YoinksTranslator! It’s a part-time job, but somebody has got to do it.

  33. J is the king. All hail king J!!

  34. My best friend just had a baby, would it be highly unsuitable to get them an aged photo of him as a Christening gift? I’m sure in their now sleepless state I could convince them to go for the time travel thing…

  35. Also how gutted would you be if it turned out your really cute baby was gonna be a fucking ugly kid?!
    I remember when that used to happen to my Sims, killed me every time! (Yes I really am -that- cool!)
