It may be spelled properly but that doesn’t mean it’s used properly. It’s meant for instances where someone is referring to the second of two choices – it doesn’t work for three.
And now that I’ve met my grammar nazi quota for the month, I have to agree with you on Stever. I imagine a pale, skinny, highly-excitable teenager furiously pressing F5 on his keyboard for hours on end.

Vivek, that isn’t true, I saw some guy posting he was going to see it after a friend of mine status said she had seen it. I suspect he isn’t a fan of Woddy Harrelson and didn’t like Zombieland because of this. Thus I must kill him.
Don’t the trolls kind of make the chats what they are? Like Malteaser’s “lol” and Zombiekid’s “I Like Turtles.” Gives it the quirky edge we expect. Then again, Everything has took a dip with major players leaving (slimjayz, mccowles and now wordpervert). I sense the end is nigh.
I enjoy Stever’s determination. Plus him and dan_fargis post like normal commenters every so often. Though dan_fargis’ religion stuff got kinda old, plus Yoink’s spelling is… jesus. But that’d be fine, I could just ignore that, if for some reason Lamebook hadn’t become ‘Quirky’NewTrollsBook and suddenly ALL comments pages were filled with people banging on about dan_fargis and yoink like rabid fangirls all over one of them half-naked blokes off Twilight.
Add that in with most of the old, awesome commenters having left, or only rarely coming on, plus this shit username-stealing ‘fad’, and the Lamebook comments page has finally caught up with Lamebook itself in terms of being tired, unfunny, unbelievably repetitive and sheer, sheer bollocks.
@ BritishHobo the love/hate of yoink and dan_fargis has got old, people never shut up about them, but it was bearable until this name stealing, it’s just getting petty now. It is ironic that Lamebook has itself become lame. Well word has announced her intention to leave if things don’t improve, may not happen yet.
Ok I didn’t want to leave like this, the time for my leaving was coming soon anyway but with what happened with the name stealing wound me up enough that I really felt I couldn’t go with my plan anyway. So then, time to come clean.
I am actually a 22 year old girl, I can spell and use correct grammar, in fact I write for a living (nothing major just for a local newspaper) and I have been coming onto lamebook for the past few months and just reading, I always found it funny how people correct people on the smallest spelling mistakes and I just got bored one night and decided to put a short comment with bad spelling to see what reaction I got and found the reactions hilarious, I wasn’t actually expecting to stick around I only did because peoples reactions to “me” were much more extreme and diverse than I had anticipated and I became slightly addicted to commenting with these reactions. If you go back to the first thread I commented on you will probably notice if you look close enough how my spelling got progressively worse.
The whole thing with “GazzaT” was a fluke, I know some people who had guessed me out as not real thought him and I were the same person but I’m not. I don’t know if he actually did believe me to be this person or if he was just playing along with me and having an input? I would actually like if he could clear this up for me?
As I said I had sort of become addicted to commenting as “yoink” but I realised I cannot continue to do it yesterday when typed up a report for work and when I proof read it I realised it was full of spelling errors including the word “anit” 3 times, I then got scared that I was becoming yoink and knew my time on here was growing shorter as I couldn’t risk becoming him permanently. I was hoping there would be a better more fitting time to leave than this but hey if I’m going to be forced to leave anyway might as well explain the truth to you guys.
I’m sorry for any disappointment caused and I actually have enjoyed being yoink the loveable illiterate, and would like to still take some credit for the awesome words that “yoink” made up, although I must say I doubt very much if they would have been paid much attention to if they were put across by me as myself as they did with the yoink character. It was never my intention to be a “troll” and that is such an ugly word which I don’t believe I am, I just thought I’d write one, maybe two comments to see what reaction I got and it sort of developed.
But… word isn’t like, really gone? Is she? Word? Say it ain’t so!
As far as yoink is concerned, I really don’t know what to think. At first, he seemed like your typical troll, and then you could tell that he was capable of coherent sentences and randomly funny shit, which is good in my book. But some things have gone too far… In dans case, I just ignore him as much as possible. This name stealing crap is bs though.
@_isglory you very much doubt what? That I was anyone other than yoink? Well your entitled to believe whatever you like _isglory but I’m quite confident that if you properly looked into it you’d see that it is an impossibility for me to be all these, I work full time, I actually do sleep and have a life outside of lamebook aswell as some of the comments are submitted at exactly the same times. I know I have revealed the truth that I am female but I’m really not THAT good at multi tasking.
I had more of a problem with the sandbags that defended yoink’s presence. Not that my opinion really matters, but it clearly disrupted the entire Lamebook universe. And that’s not very cool. Bunch of wet blankets.
@TheDonMega12 exactly many will be pissed off with that is the main reason people wouldn’t want me, the other is that although I know people hated yoink for his shit spelling I think it somehow endeared some and made yoink what he was.
_isglory I see your point and I could see how it was overtaking lamebook, that as well as my work suffering and me becoming yoink was why I knew I couldn’t continue much longer. As I said the scale of the reactions to yoink shocked and amused me. I was expecting to write a couple of comments and for the reactions to give me a bit of a personal giggle then just go back to reading but lamebook (and yoink) really is addictive.
But then again that will also depend on the submissions too. I must confess though that I´ve been looking at the posts more than reading the comments lately. Pre-shit times it was probably the other way around.
So, yoink, are you as good at handling wood as your alter-ego?
Word, your threat to take a break caused a shift in the universe so dramatic that everyone came in their pants simultaneously when you revealed it to not be true. I would hate to think what would have happened if it were true.
@wordpervert the commen that said you know I can spell and to show you? I was actually! Very nearly did just put a normal spelling post just to be done with it, writing like that can get a bit tedius and the worrying thing was I was getting more and more used to it.
@mass Sweetie I hate to break it to you but i’m lacking the penis to circumsize in the first place, although with yoink I did put a lot of myself into him and concerning that it was a reference to my actual preference for men to be uncut. Also the fact it was having a dig at dan_fargis was a plus. I also enjoyed the banter I could have with yoink, making up words and being creative with insults was probably the best part of being him.
What, you looked it up just now? You weren’t tempted to before? Lol
Um, this is fucking stupid. I don’t see why anyone would pretend to be this or that to get some attention. This doesn’t make you any more likeable. How much time do you have on your hands to do something like that? Eto pizdets!!
I enjoy(ed) this website because of the different people that comment on here, and now it’s just gaaaay.
@nuff I was under the impression everyone would hate me once revealed, in fact see comment below you.
@kras aww I am sorry it was just a bit of boredom busting that escalated further than I could’ve imagined. I really meant no offense to anyone and I’m sorry if it upset you but to be honest this is the internet and that is the nature of the internet I’m afraid.
No by nature of the internet I mean anybody can be anybody, it is naive to think otherwise, you can’t take people at facevalue in the real world let alone over the internet.
I will leave, I will return to read posts/comments although I will not comment anymore I said that already. Though I would also like the answer to if you done it to actually drive yoink away aswell, as I suspect?
I did it to make the burden even bigger. To get you to knock it the fuck off, because I knew you were a fraud from the get-go. I tried to out you before, but your damned clones came to your rescue. The hypocritical cloning on my part was a last ditch effort. Whether it worked or not, we’ll see. It was a paper-thin facade.
A taste of your own medicine? Maybe. I don’t know. You bothered me, and I wanted you to be gone.
Eh, I’m a pretty light-hearted, easy going guy. Takes a lot to piss me off or even annoy. Forgive and forget. Also, I just preferred remaining ignorant about the entire yoink thing in the beginning and take it all with a grain of salt.
@Kras I haven’t stolen anyones username? All I done was posted comments under a alter ego and had fun with peoples reactions, To some yoink was entertainment and to some he was a minor annoyance which made it more amusing to those who viewed it as entertainment. At the end of the day I entertained you and no one was harmed in it so it’s really not that big a deal, I didn’t kill a kitten or something.
So FredNordie it was you? lol as I said I’m not really annoyed I had planned to go in the next few days anyway, and it’s exactly your reaction that made it so amusing for me, the fact that you were so annoyed and frustrated by the presence of yoink to go to those lengths to get rid is absolutely priceless and the exact reason I done it in the first place to actually see how intolerant people can be. Thankyou
What worries me is people befriended him because of that lamebook post. Really? That’s got to be the epitome of lame. I say a couple of days and Lamebook is back to it’s usual runnings(though hoefully it’ll bring back the good posts).
Well Fred I didn’t actually say I promised to never comment again and you obviously aren’t the original yoink. Also you seem like a dick so I wouldn’t feel guilty about breaking the promise, I won’t be anywhere near as regular as yoink as I really do not have so much to say as myself and am not as witty as yoink. I have actually grown to quite like some lamebook commenters and really didn’t expect the reaction once revealed. Was expecting lots of abuse and the only one that seems offended is kras (incidentally one of the commenters I really did like) But I may comment occasionally.
I feel compelled to mention that this is the only post I have commented on so far today. But I am flattered that an imposter found me worthy of mimicking. I will now masturbate while staring at myself in the mirror to celebrate my growing numbers.
I also still want to know about GazzaT he said he was a regular reader on lamebook so hopefully he has read this and can come forward with his story. I am interested to know if this real life yoink guy he spoke about is real or if he said it purely to play along?
I realise this is probably of no interest to anyone else. lol It just confused me slightly at the time.
I am offended because I was the one that got into it with people who were rude to you, and for what? Lol geez..
Just remind me again, who is the real you? Too many of you posting on here makes it confusing.
Kras as I said I meant no offense and you were entertained were you not? The real me is me I changed my displayname to the artist formerly known as yoink at #97, Everything about my identity is in #47.
Don: Ah, sorry, I missed that comment. I was there as well, thought it was entertaining for a bit, but when people started finding her myspace and talking to her, and pasting chat logs where she just sounded miserable, I felt bad for enjoying it…
Soup: Oh man, that guy called me a troll before, it hurt me deep. Now I can go masturbate while thinking that you don’t hate me.
Hobo; well as long as you aren’t me that’s awesome. I’d feel a bit weird if I wasn’t real. It’d be like that science fiction story my metaphysics professor made me read where the guy didn’t know if he was the cloned version of himself or not.
totalpixie, I once read a sci-fi story where the big twist at the end was, thanks to time-travel (and the early arrival of the end of the story preventing the writer from sufficiently explaining all this sci-fi bollocks), the main character was EVERYONE EVER.
Compared to that, this yoink shit is like… Spot the Dog. Or a Dan Brown novel.
@soup lol I have to give that one to you was it entertaining or anti-climactic? Also have to say I enjoyed our ‘arguement’ the other day, I wondered if I was being a little mean at one point but I fuigured you could take it and give as good back.
British, your keen eye caught the first one outright. Your defense of my honor made me wet. But the next time around he/she included the link to my prolapsed urethra. My doppelbänger is developing sentience.
@British Yeah the SWMNBN thing really did get out of control. Kind of sad how I remember the nickname lol. It was like a guilty pleasure. At least it died down. I am now comfused by the reappearance of ‘yoink’ claiming not to be FredNordie, this is turning out to be one of those tv shows that out-stays it’s welcome by like 2 seasons.
@mass how could I have gone to alords gig with him expecting yoink? I wouldn’t have been prepared to go as far as to cut my tits off shave my hair and grow an adams apple would have been pretty hard. lol
@totalpixie I’m surprised I kept it up so long aswell, but really knew it had to stop as soon as I read what I nearly published in the local paper an article about a flower display full of “anit”s wouldn’t have gone down too well I don’t think. lol
i’ve just returned after a six-hour hiatus of krave cereal, red wine, and soccer boss simulation game v2.1 2004 or whatever it is (i have to do this when i need to self-flagellate). this is the life of a rock star.
reading this thread has been like watching a pinter play.
i’m flabbergasted. right at the beginning, i thought yoink wasn’t real. but i wanted to believe in him, so i bought into him. so this has all come as a shock to me.
however, ‘yoink’, the invitation to the gig still stands. i hope you stick around on the boards. reading this post has made me feel like i was on the orient express. like when poirot seems to be outing a murderer, except it wasn’t mr. kruger, it was ACTUALLY lady diane trollope…. who wanted to kill him but was ill…. leaving the door open for professor tibbs…. whose flight was late so that…. etc.
unless frednordie is actually yoink! :-s
actually, i think frednordie’s just a simpleton.
but who impersonated soup!?!?!
perhaps it was soup, to bolster his lamebook popularity by making everyone think he was being impersonated!!
Oh man, this was the most awesome thing since Sunset Beach. I signed up just to say that. Well… that and I think I love theartistformerlyknownasyoink. I like “SERIOUS psychological defects” in a woman. Gives us something in common.
@ theartistformerlyknownasyoink…fuck you’re a sad bitch! I didn’t read most of the comments, because they were as boring bat shit. But fuck me if I didn’t want to cause you gbh. Yoink pissed me off and so do you! Go back to your cats you ugly mole.
I don’t know about Stockholm Syndrome, alord. Not having commented before today, nor made a habit of reading the comments, I’ve only been vaguely aware of the whole yoink furore. But holy crap, today’s been awesome. And I kind of like that she pissed everyone off for shits and giggles.
alord, if yoink’s creator is a chick, chances are she’s fugly. Think about it, you think there are tons of hot chicks who get their jollies spending all their free time hunched over their keyboards pretending to be lovable losers?
walt – you’re forgetting we live in an age of relativism.
i’ve not actually left my house in 3 years because my face is so hideous to behold. i used to be a swimming instructor at my local leisure centre, but i got fired because i scared all the kids half to death (i didn’t touch them. i swear i didn’t touch them. nobody can prove it.).
re: post. i’ve actually just been in my back garden smoking my stokkebye black cherry in my pipe for the first time in months, so puzzling and wondrous has this night been, and so much cause for reflection it’s given me. i have the strangest feeling that the denouement still hasn’t happened….
I will miss yoink, I got the greatest laughs from him, her, you (especially the one about bangin dan’s mom against the crucifix) I could do without the yoink language. So in closing yoink. I want to thank you for the laughs. Bravo!
Yeah, I was following that day on my phone, I quit part-way through because I hated having to scroll through so much and read it all on a small screen and loading times and just plain fucking gay. Sooo, I don’t remember that one. C’est la vie.
@walter yes that’s really a sign of a psychopath, ooh forget the normal signs of mental illness including going on killing sprees, having a bit of a laugh on the internet is far far more of a giveaway that someone is mentally ill, I should be sectioned straight off. And also yes of course I absolutely must be ugly seeing as how every female that knows how to work a computer, type and go on the internet couldn’t possibly be anything but ‘fugly.’
@yoink/Fred Nordie @ #224 for one I can’t believe you’re still impersonating yoink. Also some spelling corrections for if you were in fact yoink: *funni *rewanin *evryfink *wiv *frends *pindicks.
Is anyone else concerned that Mrs Crowley could well be a teacher? Don’t know if it’s more disturbing that a teacher would befriend one of her pupils on FB or that a teacher would shoot off acronyms like ‘F.A.G’.
This is the craziest shit I’ve ever seen on the internet, or possibly ever. Besides the concert I went to last night but yeah. Holy shit. I liked yoink as yoink, I liked how lb was even though it was annoying. I wonder how we will carry on. I see many questions in the future. I mean, there were so many about Ben…
For those who don’t have @ least a half hour to skim through the comments to see what the hell the hubbub is about, simply go to comment #49 and read that shit. Soak it up. Digest that for a little bit but hold the phone your brain is about to get scrambled…
Skim through as many comments as you are interested in reading and then go to comment #128 to see new twist. Things get more confusing. Paranoia ensues and suddenly you are living in the Big Brother house.
Overall it is a challenging comment page to read through and understand. The more you read, the more fucked your mind becomes.
#127 I immediately made your comment my status update. It made me laugh so hard MY poo almost became real.
