This is totally, incredibly, stupidly lame. Not only is it hideously contrived, but it’s a played out old meme that wasn’t funny when it started. Anyone who has the time or the inclination to do this should be ashamed of themselves for wasting oxygen.
Away and read a book or something then. I know it’s a Rule of the Internet that nothing is allowed to be posted anywhere without someone saying “This is shite”, but really man, don’t be that guy. There are millions of other fuckers out there queuing up to be living clichés, give one of them a chance.
I don’t think site is really made for people as grumpy and serious as Ben. It’s just a little joke Ben, not meant to be read into very deeply. Okay so they’re not the next tenacious D but have a giggle hey? Theres so much negativity on the world… just move on to the next submission!
Yes. I realise this now, just slightly too late, that me telling you that you are enacting a cliché is, as you rightly point out, also a cliché. I can only apologise. I think we either need to take this double act on the road, or stop seeing each other.
It’s a website. One of the best (and worst) things about the internet is that it is open to (almost) all. If I want to be grumpy, I will be.
I’m not actually very grumpy, I just think this particular submission is below par, and I think that the number of people gushing over how clever and funny it is is bizarre. For some reason, being told off because my opinion differs from that of the majority makes me quite annoyed.
“Silent Koala and Ben”? How about “Handsome Ben and the Silent Koala”? Or “Stupid Ben Garbage Face and the Koala of Silence”? Coming to theatres near you!
Seriously, Melly? If that’s really the case, and not just gross hyperbole, you really need to get out more. I’ve trodden in things that have amused me more.
And FUCK YOU is right. Read the FAQ, idiots. My problem with it is not that it’s not lame, which it is, but that it’s not funny. And should definitely not have had the headline “AWESOME”. But at least that’s changed now.
OK….i’ll give it to Ben….it’s not really funny, but it’s FUN….like tag team or round robin. i enjoyed it cuz the friends seemed to be having so much fun….what i don’t get is why Ben is wasting HIS valuable energy HATING it so much….you don’t have to like it, but you ALSO don’t have to be so hateful about it….y’know, so much anger shortens the lifespan, Ben
@Ben If anyone needs to get out more, it’s you. Stop trolling the comments waiting for someone to either respond to your crankiness or say something which makes you feel entitled enough to pounce. Come out of your basement! It’s ok, the sunlight might not burn you to ashes (fingers crossed).
set up or not set up, funny to me or not funny to me.. this is what facebook is *supposed* to be about. let friends play around and be creative, rather than be bitchy and monotonous. beats retarded catfights and posts about doing the laundry any day.
your quote in 33, “I’m not actually very grumpy, I just think this particular submission is below par, and I think that the number of people gushing over how clever and funny it is is bizarre. For some reason, being told off because my opinion differs from that of the majority makes me quite annoyed.”
I don’t think comics that curse are very funny. For example, one comic may say, “That fucking man.” while another comic may say, “That [adjective] man.” I find it more amusing that the second comic chose an adjective to describe the man, but I understand that some people find comics that curse to be very funny. It is for this reason that I don’t rain of their parade; it’s just different strokes for different folks.
Just because you didn’t find it funny, doesn’t mean others should not.
dee? the dee summers?! i just want to say, really terrific job handling that money shot in screamers. you totaly should have taken home the avn for that. all you aspiring adult film stars out there, take notes from this girl, especially on handling the meat. linden, krista, james, james, mateo, dan; i’m looking your way. don’t forget to cup the balls
Wow. Things on this thread are really moving! I’m liking the extremely original abuse.
“Hurf durf, someone disagrees with me on the internet, I’ll make some mum jokes.” Hilarious. Almost as funny as the guy who claims that posts like this are what Facebook is for.
No, Facebook is a convenient way of keeping in touch with your friends. It’s retards like these guys who are ruining it, and it’s retards like the rest of you thinking this is hilarious, and “epic lulz” who are ruining the internet. I despise each and every person who found this funny.

don’t you think it’s possible that people keep in touch with their friends in creative ways?
they didn’t post it thinking “oh manz, this will be all over the internet and lamebook!” they’re a bunch of people thinking their fun times with their friends are going to be kept with their friends. you’re a fucktard for reading about people’s facebook conversations outside of facebook because you don’t have your own friends to read about or be creative with.
there should be a post here with just a status of yours that says “I’m ben. I have no friends. someone plz comment. i’m going to talk shit on a website cause no one cares. :*( (sad panda)”
Wow, ben is a homoerectus, for someone who doesn’t care, you certainly felt an odd compulsion to get your knickers in a twist. You’re also a fucking idiot. If you look at the post, you’ll see that one of the people who was involved in this was the person who submitted it to Lamebook. So it is VERY OBVIOUS that they aren’t a group of friends being “creative” for the Hell of it. They DID “post it thinking “oh manz, this will be all over the internet and lamebook!””.
Try reading and assimilating all the information before berating me, you douchebag.
hey,its pretty cool. it aint lame.
whats lame is that its on lamebook.
whats lamer is that, as ben pointed out, is that the guy who supposedly liked it (you, …likes it) sent this to lamebook. cuz if u like it, u dont send it to lamebook.
and ben, that was creative. whatever the reason. hand it to them. ok? dont freak out and develop theories on why ppl would send it to lamebook. get a life.
No, it’s not the fact that he liked it, and that if you like something you shouldn’t send it to Lamebook. Read the FAQ if you don’t understand why.
What’s lame is that it’s not the spontaneous and funny event you all seem to think. It’s that it was obviously set up. That it’s a crap old meme from fucking 4chan. That it isn’t even done particularly well. These are all valid reasons to call it lame.
I fail to see how it is creative to replace the lyrics of a song with your own lyrics about hot air ballooning. Especially when they don’t actually scan.
However, I have enjoyed this exchange so far, and will continue to “freak out”, because it’s quite enjoyable. I especially like the fact that I’m constantly being told to get a life because I’ve responded to something on the internet. By people responding to stuff on the internet. The irony is simply delicious!
Sorry, if that’s too long. To sum up: You’re a douchebag, and I have every right to my opinion. If you don’t like it, there’s nothing you can do about it.
Made me laugh too. And it was lame. Sometimes I laugh at lame stuff. I also like a lot of cheesy techno and MOR crap. I don’t care how much of a fucktard that makes me. If you don’t like that you can fuck off too.
Isn’t Ben just attention seeking, something this website pokes fun at, to be honest Ben, you use an extensive vocabulary and seem fairly clever. Surely then you should be able to accept that people like this. Conversely you have every right to be grumpy, just don’t feel the need to show everyone every 6 or so posts.
Don’t you see guys Ben’s cooler than all of us, he doesn’t go against the grain. He does cool shit like wear sunglasses at night, while he smokes cigarettes behind the dumpster at his school.
He’s too cool for any lame shit that’s pre-written because it’s obviously pre-written (Because it takes a lot of time to come up with your own lyrics to the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air a lot of time) if he had to come up with his own lyrics he would have to sit down for hours to write it, literally hours to come up with his own lyrics. I mean for real he’s goddamn clever, that he’s exempt from all types of criticism on the internet but he can criticize others, he’s so above it all.
Nobody cares where I was born and raised
My mom’s basement is where I spent most of my days
Never been laid, still livin with mom
Mad when I got on lamebook.com
A status thread there that I thought was no good
So I made a post saying what I thought I should
Got in a bunch of dumb fights with everyone that was there
Then my mom told me to bring dirty dishes upstairs
I – got – done with all my mom’s chores between nine and ten
Logged on to see that everyone was PICKIN ON BEN
Looked at my friends list, but no names were there
So I cried in my room, because life isn’t fair
Oh, and thanks for the compliment about the last two lines, Ben. It means alot coming from you. I know you don’t dole out compliments easily. That’s why everyone hates you…..umm, except me, of course. That’s why I wrote a song about you.
I think saying that everyone hates me is a little extreme, Parody… Some people have agreed with me. not many, I’ll grant you, but some.
Thank you for writing a song about me. I think it’s the first time anyone’s ever done that. Even if it mentioned my mother more than it did me. And claimed that I’ve never had sex. And still live at home, in the basement.
The “fresh prince of hot air” sucks everybody on here sucks, oh and everybody that thinks its cool to disagree with ben SUCKS. BEN i love yooouu!!!!!! wooooooh get a life you cock suckerrrrsss!! oh, dont mind replying to this post, im not lame enough to EVER come back here and check it. =)
Ben: If you dont think its funny, thats fine. State it and move on to the next post if you want to. But engaging the trolls is silly. You’re not gonna convince them of anything, and even if you tried as hard as you could, and succeeded in changing even one mind, all you’ve done is won an argument on the internet. And I’m sure you’ve seen the pic about internet arguments, and what winning them means. If not, google it.
This is by FAR the most BRILLIANT and MAGNIFICANT thing i have ever seen in the entirety of my LIFE.may the people who wrote this be forever honoured for their talent and abilties.They are my new heros and i love them.<3
