  2. It’s all fun and games until your parents discover Facebook!

  3. Pedometer. HAHA

  4. I can’t believe that shirt says that, wow! POLICE!

  5. Jeffry gives me the creeps. Wierd wierd wierd.
    I’ll bet he’s on some creepy dating website somewhere messaging younger girls odd things like that.
    I had one from a 39 year old man the other day calling me ‘flower’

    *shudders*

  6. the latter three were quite the tickle

  7. none of these are funny.

  8. That t-shirt is hilarious.

  9. Jeffry scares me.

  10. That shirt is fucked up! Nothing hilarious there samwise.

  11. I think that t-shirt is from T-Shirt Hell. Awesomeness.

  12. I’m loving the juxtaposition with the girl sporting the pigtail braids.

  13. The t-shirt is stupid at best. I find it disgusting and not funny. The first two are not very interesting. The last one is funny in a creepy way. If I were Randy, I’d not be bringing any of my friends around that weirdo.

  14. the guy in he red t-shirt is a dick, I hope a wild dog chews his balls off and then regurgitates them on to his face!

  15. The last really creeps me out. I feel dirty for just reading it.

  16. I’m more concerned about that last one. He is actually attempting to groom his son’s friends. That’s a step further than wearing a sick t shirt for shock value surely?

  17. There is a time and place for t-shirts such as that… and seeing how it seems he is at a party, it is a total win. If I saw him at a party I would totally approach, laugh, and ask where he got it… and inevitably end up in drunken hysterics for the rest of the evening.

    However, if he were to wear it to church, or when he is volunteering with children, or at his pedo anon meetings… well, perhaps then it would be fucked up.

  18. Is anyone else more upset that the guy has no idea who Roman Polanski is?

  19. why is this categorised as parents/family… must be a reflection on lamebook creators up bringing

  20. @numnum read the last one…

  21. SIDS: Nature’s escape clause and aphrodisiac all rolled into one.

  22. the last one is the only family related one… more none family ones… just saying

  23. Nun family? Wow, that opens up a whole new can of worms, there…

  24. I’m just trying to understand Jeffry’s thought process surrounding the sending of that note.

  25. Also, Jeffry, go ahead and throw in an “e”. Just because your mom can’t spell Jeffrey, doesn’t mean that you have to go through life with that name.

  26. Wow. All kinds of creepy going on.

  27. Roman Polanski was the greatest rebounder EVA!

  28. Oh, and Randys dad even gave me the creeps and his creepiness wasn’t even directed at me.

  29. The last one is absurd; surely it’s one of Randy’s friend’s alternate accounts. I just have a hard time believing anyone’s dad would behave like that.

  30. lol, they are all funny and disturbing :D

  31. lol at the name numnum and at Matty’s comment @numnum etc

  32. Pedobear approves.

  33. The first one is hardly “pedo”. Ogling a 17 year old is definitely a “dirty old man” thing to do, but doesn’t rise to the level of Polanski-ism. That particular 17 year old is badly in need of a sandwich though.

    The shirt is the kind of joke you tell your Internet friends, or your real life friends if you’re in high school. That guy actually looks like a pedophile though, so wearing that shirt probably isn’t the best idea for him.

  34. The last one is just wrong.

  35. Something I’ve always wondered is… is it Lamebook if the joke is a t-shirt caption? Or one of those awesome signs you guys have in America outside shops? Do they count?

    Fuck it, I’m going to bed. I’m too boring for this.

  36. Jeffry needs a nice kick to the balls, and I laughed at the Roman Polanski one. It was just so random.

  37. That shirt is so far from funny. It’s disturbing. It’s also disturbing that some people find humor in that. Sick

  38. His shirt is hilarious BECAUSE its sick!

  39. CommentsAtLarge

    First three made me chuckle, but the last one… yikes. Jeffry, if you realize you shouldn’t say it, don’t. To put it in writing to boot, good lord man.

  40. And how the hell is that “hilarious because it’s sick”?

  41. yourinevitabledemise

    Well, if it doesn’t happen to press any buttons for you, like it obviously does for some, we can see the humor in the fact that 1. anyone who is insane enough to think that way probably doesn’t order t-shirts off the internet to make funnies about their fucked up obsessions, and 2., he knows people will be easily shocked by it, thereby entertaining his evening with all the wide-eyed, disgusted glances in his direction. I’d just lump this in the category with dead baby jokes, helen keller jokes, race jokes, etc. Because YOU don’t think it’s funny and can’t loosen your asshole enough to at least acknowledge it’s not for serious, doesn’t mean it’s just not funny. There’s totally a market for that kinda bozo shit.

  42. I never said that you can’t find it funny; just that I don’t.
    So calm yourself down. Please and thanks. :)

  43. Well, you told samwise that it wasn’t hilarious, the implication being that you know what’s funny and he/she does not. To extrapolate the notion that you would apply this assessment to anyone else expressing approval of the shirt is not much of a stretch.

  44. @krasivaya_devushka,Clearly yourinevitabledemise finds it hilarious because he is sick! Duh fricking pedo humor is disgusting!

  45. yourinevitabledemise

    I wasn’t just talking to you, either. Others were offended. But you did ask a question in a mildly hostile manner that indicated this just couldn’t possibly be funny, only offensive. Next time I’ll be like “Excuse me Sir/Madame, but your post reflects the idea that you are upset, based on inflection I can only interpret as negative. So might I suggest these ideas to help clarify?” Then maybe everybody won’t think I’m getting huffy with them. That always happens. Ah well.

  46. Am I just not one of the cool kids or are American Apparel clothes eye-meltingly horrible?

  47. TylerDurdenUMD

    ms anthropist,

    It’s both, because I spent last summer all over Europe and it was equally as WTF-ing.

  48. YorkshirebornNBread

    silly question, do american LB viewers see the adverts for american apparel? I’m in the UK seeing adverts for “IMMIGRATE TO AMERICA” that look like you guys will accept pretty much anyone…and American Apparel, which to be honest I thought was a joke clothing manufacturer for ladies of the evening….seriously how bad are things over there?

  49. @ TylerDurdenUMD: eh?? Sorry, I was talking about the ads for American Apparel that have been plastered over LB lately, not trying to start some stupid Brits v Yanks snarkfest.

    Never mind, I’ll just get my (hideous European) coat…

  50. rockinghorsefly

    Although Jeffry SAYS that he is fat and bald and old, he clearly BELIEVES that he is a chick magnet with cool older-guy appeal. He also believes that his requests for hugs will be seen as cheeky but somewhat endearing. He is delusional.

  51. krasivaya_devushka

    Oh Bozhe…
    You guys are being rude. I never said what you think I said; it’s not my fault you read into it too much. People have a different sense of humor when it comes to certain things, and I just find that t-shirt more disturbing than anything else. And I’m not one of those people who comes online to argue. I respect everyone’s opinion, and I don’t ever mean to sound rude. Maybe it just looks like it, but this is Internet – you can’t ever know completely how someone meant what he/she said. So with that being said, I apologize if I came off rude with my comment(s) ’cause I never intended for that to happen. :)

  52. “That shirt is fucked up! Nothing hilarious there samwise.”
    “And how the hell is that “hilarious because it’s sick”?”
    “I never said that you can’t find it funny; just that I don’t.”

    My intention was not to be rude, just to point out the contradiction in your comments. Your opinion is as valid as anyone else’s, but you certainly seemed to be challenging other people’s opinions. And now you call us rude!

    Oh well. I’d still bang you.

    “Jeffry gives me the creeps. Wierd wierd wierd.

    39 is old enough to be creepy? Wow. I have never dated anyone in there 30s but seriously? Really? Just wow.

    I agree that the father trying to groom his son’s friends is very disconcerting. but while I might also not wear that shirt, it looks to be a Halloween costume, which explains the blank expressions and pigtails. I highly doubt he is a pedo and the shirt and others like it bring out into the open discussions on things that until recently were just not discussed. That in my eyes is a win. While I may not choose something for myself for the most part I believe that being able to do so is and should be a choice available to me.

  54. …and the title for the post I see is Pedo to the Metal.

  55. *their

  56. rebarbativebecc

    That Jeffry one reminds me of something I saw with this girl and guy in a chat room and the guy is like ‘Oh i like young girls, if my daughter was asleep id be in there trying to get with her friend who’s over to help with her science project’ (all that info was delivered over a space of time and not in order) and then says they should meet up and the daughter is like ‘yeah i like older guys (actually agrees to meet him sometime)…well i better go i have to work on my project before my dad finds me on the computer’ and the dads like ‘whats your project, maybe i can help’ daughter ‘a science project with my friend’ dad’where do you live?’ daughter’*place*’ dad’YOURE GROUNDED!’ daughter’DAD?!’

  57. @ 56. rebarbativebecc If you are going to lie at least lie and say a friend told you so if you get caught you have plausible deniablilty. I mean come on, really, that is one of the oldest urban legends out there. It has been around since IRC according to my uncle. I personally have seen it in almost every chat room or message board I have been to in like the last 10 years. At least the people ussualy have the concept of plausible deniability under their belts. :D Idiot.

  58. The second one sums up why I prefer British English to American English:

    PED is the Latin root for feet (hence pedometer, pedal, pedalo etc)
    PAED is the Latin root for child (hence paedophile, paediatrician)

    When you remove the silent letters the word changes meaning.

    Sorry for being a pretentious dick but it annoys me that I get red underlines when I spell things with the silent letters included. A paedophile is a nonce, a PEDOfile should just be some guy with a foot fetish.

    PS. In the UK the age of consent is 16 so the girl in the first one is open season! ;)

  59. I’m in agreement with the Mongolian ^

  60. @5(amtrak4lovers): Who says Jeffry is talking to his son’s FEMALE friend(s)? BAHAHAHA

    Seriously, thought, that is really really creepy.

  61. Walter Sobchak

    The post from Jeffry is the most horrible, disgusting, disturbing, pathetic thing I have ever seen. He is from forever onward, my idol.

  62. Walter Sobchak

    So the reason you prefer British English is because you’re a traditionalist and you don’t like it when spellings are changed or when new words appear, like “nonce?” Maybe you should be speaking Latin?

    Or is it that you prefer British English because you’re British?

  63. Reread his post Walter. You have completely misunderstood his reasoning.

  64. Well, the T-shirt is may or may not be funny in your opinion. But, let me tell you a story. People said I look like a kid , so I got a haircut thinking it’d accentuate my feature and make me look older, but people just laughed. Then, I grew a mustache and a goatee thinking it’d make look older, but people still..just laughed. Then I got that T-shirt and people just shut the fuck up.
    Yep.

  65. rebarbativebecc

    @Nonnieyrissa
    I said “reminds me of something I saw” meaning I saw it in on something similar to Lamebook. I never said it happened to me…? So I really have no idea what you’re accusing me of or why you’re calling me an idiot.

  66. Walter Sobchak

    Mystery Goose, maybe I didn’t make my point clear. American English and British English are almost entirely the same. I’m not a linguist or anything, but I’m sure there are 100′s of examples where both have taken words with Latin or Greek or French roots and changed the spellings or pronounciations in exactly the same way. To then pick one example and say “oh in British English we haven’t changed this spelling yet, so I prefer British English” is kind of silly.

    And anyway, in Greek, “ped” means “child” not “foot.” So you could just say in American English they use the Greek ped instead of the Latin paed. But to me it’s arbitrary anyway.

    The real issue here is that Bill Gates invented spell check. Meanwhile Das Mogul is British trying to type with British spelling. That’s why he’s upset. He said it himself.

  67. Haha! Walter my love you’ve just made yourself look like an argumentative idiot with no clue about the English language.

  68. What do you mean by “look like?”

    I love you too :D

  69. Walter Sobchak

    (even though you’re obviously retarded)

  70. Walter Sobchak

    (because only a retard wouldn’t realise that as soon as you try to defend your stupid comment you become a hypocrite (just in case you didn’t realise why you’re a retard))

  71. Nope I don’t need to defend my comment as you’re doing a perfectly fine job of making my point for me.

  72. Walter Sobchak

    I don’t agree. You want to continue arguing about it, hypocrite?

  73. hahahahahaha… ahhhhhh again, thank you

  74. Space, I agree. Walter… you need to research your history of the English language before arguing about it. Your pointer in #66:

    “oh in British English we haven’t changed this spelling yet, so I prefer British English” is kind of silly.

    Yes it is silly. It’s also rather naive. “haven’t changed this spelling YET”? Really? You do know that the majority of the rest of the world uses British spelling, right?

    And in case you were wondering, no I’m not British. But the British spelling is more widely used, and implying that the rest of the world is behind American English because you spell it differently to the rest of the world is, in your words “kind of silly”, and very self-absorbed.

  75. oh and by the way

    http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/ped

    “ped” does mean “foot”, directly translated from Latin.

    HOWEVER (here comes the interesting part), it has come into use in the English language as a variation of “paed”… BUT ONLY IN THE AMERICAN ENGLISH USAGE! The Latin definition is of a foot. So technically, yes, a “pedophile” should mean someone with a foot fetish or the likes… unless you’re in America. So yes, you have made yourself look like an idiot by your lack of knowledge of the English language anywhere outside of America.

    See http://www.thefreedictionary.com/ped- for US English definition.

  76. Walter, you are quite clearly a complete and utter twat.
    DH

  77. Walter Sobchak

    This is fun.

    Rockerchick, thank you for saying something with some actual substance. I was starting to get used to the vacuousness.

    But I’ll tell you what’s naive. It’s naive to agree with somebody who hasn’t actually said anything and then assume I am the person who hasn’t done research.

    The majority of the rest of the world use British spelling? No, I didn’t know that. I thought that most countries use their own version of a language (a language that is always changing). For example, where I live, in Australia, we normally use British spellings where there are differences in spellings between American and English. You might have even noticed how I spelled “realise” in one of my other comments (if you were the observant type of person and read the things I actually wrote). However, sometimes we use American spelling and it’s considered acceptable. I know this is also the case in Canada. So I would never say to somebody “We use British spelling in Australia, you know that right?” because I don’t agree with that. I do know what you mean though. In Canada, South Africa, Australia, and New Zealand, they usually use the British spelling rather than the American spelling when they differ.

    You also seem to have assumed i was “implying that the rest of the world is behind American English because you spell it differently to the rest of the world.” I don’t know where you got any of that from. But I’m sure it’s my fault. I should probably just stop wasting my time arguing with tardos.

  78. Hehe this is fun.

    True, Space didn’t seem to have done any research to support his/her (?) disagreement, I was more agreeing with Space’s support for Das Mogul’s comment about the Latin derivatives of “ped” and “paed” versus the American translations, in which the Latin meanings were lost due to their leaving out of “silent” letters, which change the entire definition of the word.

    Mmm true they all countries have their own versions of English, I do agree. Most of the differences are found in the colloquialisms, or “slang”, but most countries use British English as their basis for spelling. I didn’t notice the way you spelled “realise” (my mistake), I guess that just comes naturally to me since we spell it that way here too.

    The Australians… Yes I have heard American spelling is considered acceptable in some cases In Australia. Canada, well although it is not part of the USA (technically) is still part of North America so it would make sense for them to use the same spelling.

    My mistake was in assuming that you were from America and implying that American spelling is “the right way to do it”, from your comment “oh in British English we haven’t changed this spelling yet”: it’s the “yet” that got me thinking perhaps you thought the American spelling was the (for lack of a better word) more ‘modern’? More ‘correct’?

    I’m from South Africa, and have European (Swiss to be exact) roots. I’ve travelled throughout various (very different) parts of the world. I’ve grown to love the British English simply because it appears more eloquent. But to each their own, nothing against the American English spelling, apart from the fact that spellcheck here automates to American English. It was rather annoying in highschool years to have corrections in our papers (essays and such) on “incorrect” spelling (it is considered incorrect here) that had been automatically changed to the American spelling in MS Word and such (and for the record, that program is Satan).

    Thanks Walter, this made for an interesting discussion, truce to you! This was fun.

    ps. @52 (Soup) Brilliant finale, love it! XD

  79. Actually, the preferred spelling in Canada is the British one, although some younger people use the American ones. Also, what do you mean when you say we’re ‘technically’ not part of the US?

  80. Do you know that many people who speak English as a first language and another language as a second language can often spell in the second language better than they can in English?

    Do you know that there are an average of about 13 different spelling for every sound in English.

    Do you know that in English you can often see a written word and have no idea how to pronounce it unless you have heard somebody pronounce it first – and you can hear a word and have no idea how to spell it unless you’ve seen it spelled.

    Do you know that sometime around 1000 AD England was defeated by a French army (after the British army was depleted due to defending the ountry from Scandinavians) and controlled by the French for a long time ? The English language was changed considerably at this time. I think French might have been the official language of England for 300 years. The French took control of all the English possessions, etc. and left the wonderful gift of “eloquent” spellings like the “-me” endings (programme) and the “ou” (colour) which replaced the old latin and greek roots, which the British (currently) so seem to love and respect.

    And then, I think it was the 1700′s when Webster changed spelling in his dictionary. He took out the “-me” and the “u.” He was a spelling reformer – concerned about the first things I mentioned in this comment, and that is why he changed the spellings in his dictionary. He didn’t do it to be different from Britain or to try to make the world speak his version of English.

    I think my point in this was to make people realise these things. I never said one thing is right or wrong. But I think the attitude of “It’s English and the language started here so American English is wrong” is wrong. English is about 80% borrowed from Germanic languages, and the rest from Latin/Greek/French. And it changes is England too.

    And by the way, I am American, but I live in Australia. I am VERY aware of the spelling differences and people judge my writing and the way I spell in Australia ALL the time.

  81. But I do apologise if any point I was paedantic.

  82. Agreed there is no “correct” and “incorrect” way when looking at the broader view, in other words, in a world-wide perspective. The only time they are considered “correct” or “incorrect” is based on the country you are in and what spelling and English usage that country decided is “acceptable” to be used in writing, in that particular country.

    Interesting background to the reason behind Webster’s changing of spelling in his dictionary… I do agree neither should be classified as “correct” or “incorrect” in the broader scope. And again apologies for the assumptions, mistake on my part! Made for a very interesting discussion though.

    @79: I simply meant that Canada is not regarded as part of the United States, but it is still part of North America. Interesting to know that they generally use the British spelling but some also use the American spelling, though.

  83. I’m the one who submitted the last post. The worst part about these messages (because there were others) is I am not even friends with Randy. He’s this weird kid I went to high school with that tells me I’m pretty all the time and smells like cat pee.

  84. @Alexis

    Ah, so there is a creepy peado gene.
