You can’t choke on lifesavers, that’s why they have a hole in the middle.
Tasha’s post just leaves out a noun at the end, I’m sure she was too busy to finish her thought and tack the self-depreciating “moron.” at the end, or perhaps is waiting for others to finish the thought for her in the comments. “Tasha [REDACTED], your fucking dumb ____________.”
The fourth post is about an event that is likely there to remind Alzheimer’s patients about what happened in the 90′s because they forgot.
I did not say that a verb was left off the end of a sentence, I said a noun was left off. Please learn to read before openly mocking the grammar of other people. Think of how the sentence would work if the commenters did fill in a noun at the end of the sentence e.g. “Tasha [REDACTED], your fucking dumb moron.” “Tasha [REDACTED], your fucking dumb goldfish.” “Tasha [REDACTED], your fucking dumb friend.”
It works just as well as the following sentences:
Batman, your super great vigilante.
Christ, your really awesome savior.
David Hasselhoff, your fucking amazing idol.
I tried to use examples you might more easily understand.
-The Third One
P.S. I use sarcasm quite a bit. Just in case you didn’t catch that. I can explain it for you in a later post in case you didn’t catch it.
The braces one is NOT ironic. The only way that would be ironic is if Gabby got braces, and she was dumped by an orthodontist or something.
Seriously, you just sound like a stupid twat in your little rant above. The Third One FTW (just because Gunther is a twat).
Definition of Irony: the use of words to convey a meaning that is the opposite of its literal meaning/an outcome of events contrary to what was, or might have been, expected
Therefore, Gabby and her braces…. not ironic. If braces are considered unattractive and you would expect to be dumped after getting braces, then Gabby becoming single is not a surprise, hence not “an event contrary to what may be expected”.
Choking on a lifesaver=ironic
Tasha’s sentence fragment and poor spelling= LAME, but not ironic or funny
Alzheimer’s party=ironic, knowing that Alzheimer’s causes you to forget, having a party to “Remember the 90′s” would be the opposite of what you would expect as an event held for the ailment.
Can ‘The Third One’s comments be put on the main page? Is there a Lamebook equivalent for dumb/lame posts that are actually on Lamebook.com? Like, lameonlamebook.com? ‘The Third One’ deserves to be on there..
Jeffrey- if you look deeper into the situation as you suggested, yes. My guess is most of the people who’ve read this and commented didn’t though.
Also, if you look at the order in which the things were posted, she became single prior to posting she got braces and there’s no date/time stamp on the relationship post, there’s no way to know if the 2 items were posted consecutively. It would have been funnier if she had posted she got braces and THEN she became single.
“I pulled down my ironing board to iron some clothes and noticed the cover was wrinkled. I laughed because it was so ironic, then I laughed again because the word ironic has iron in it.” — I often used this to explain irony here….
saltpeanuts – it is unlikely she posted those at the exact minute it happened so the order is irrelevant in that respect. However, the relationship status does have no time/date stamp so could have happened days beforehand
Seriously? That’s what you meant? To completely change the layout of the sentence? She obviously made the common mistake of mixing up “your” and “you’re”, but to make yourself seem right you add a comma and a noun? Well, I’ll give you points for creativity.
And you are correct, I did make the mistake of saying “verb” instead of “noun”. Completely my fault, I take full responsibility for my lack of proofreading.
In retrospect, these aren’t really all that funny, more like chuckle-worthy.
As far as the you’re/your folks are concerned, if you reply “my fucking dumb what” or something similar to that, it’s like poking a part of their brain that makes them freeze up and unable to respond. Yes, they’re that fucking stupid.
@Lily, there was a post including some girls status about Twilight, and how she’d had dreams about Edward Cullen, and they were in love and happy. She got all excited because today was some special day, then later added ‘oh, and our anniversary’.
Her sister came on, and they’d basically edited the entire thing, cutting out statuses from other people, and editing the actual statuses. The girl was saying ‘its your anniversary’ to some girl commenting, who Lamebook had cut out completely.
k chill, I wasn’t exactly advocating insurrection starting with this website, it seems as though this point doesn’t bake others’ noodle as much as it does mine… maybe I should switch to decaf…
found this though (sorry if it’s already well known and I’m behind the times)
Knowing the Difference Between You’re and Your, by Randy Holbrook, on Facebook.
This guy on facebook has made it his life’s work, therefore it would seem this problem is far bigger than we previously anticipated people… surrounded by people who can’t understand contractions…? Send in Randy!
I don’t understand how some people aren’t getting the Gabby post.
Obviously, she was in a relationship, got braces, and since braces are pretty unattractive and are just awkward to have, her boyfriend broke up with her.
Lily, it’s a few pages back if you care to read the comments. It’s include with another post of a guy posing with a gun with a Twilight poster behind him.
Audrey, I don’t think anyone here said they didn’t get Gabby’s post. There are just people who realise it’s not irony and thus don’t get why it’s posted under a title of “A little ironic”. You appear to be the one who doesn’t get the comments.
I had to create an account just to comment on this one.
Gabby’s isn’t ironic if you think of it the way most of you guys have been: she got braces, so now she’s single. An expected response.
But it IS ironic if you think of it in this sense: A person gets braces to correct their teeth and become more attractive. Instead of going without braces and having ugly teeth, she’s getting them corrected. But she’s single–so she would’ve been better off with the ugly teeth.
The Third One is completely off base about the “noun at the end of the sentence.” While this does work, it is extremely unlikely that Tasha is using her name in the status as a signature, “Tasha, your fucking dumb girlfriend,” for example. The most likely intent was that she was calling someone else dumb, in which case she IS an idiot, because the difference between “your” and “you’re” is NOT THAT HARD to figure out, although according to lamebook, a lot of people have this problem…..
I really don’t think ANY of you get why Gabby’s boyfriend broke up with her…I would bet the farm on the fact that it’s due to the rumor that girls with braces will “pecker wreck” when giving a blowjob.
