Why Did I Thumb This #2

Well, I eventually decided to keep this going because I decided this series just can't end without this gem.

Explain yourself for those thumbs... oh wait, that's me. Well, this one is going to need some context for all of you that wasn't around when this happened. Basically it started out as a thread about a school banning the children's classic Hop On Pop because it was considered violent. I know, how crazy is that? In hindsight it might've not been thread-worthy, but it did give us a few laughs and even I got a few thumbs for my sick Nostalgia Critic gif. You think a thread like that wouldn't last longer than a single page, but it managed to get 4 pages ever since it escalated into a whole "POLITICAL CORRECTNESS GONE MAD!!!" debate. I have quite a few embarrasing thumbs in this thread, so I could've put all of them in this blog post if I wanted to, (Which I don't.) but I decided to focus on them as it's the prime example of me thumbing posts that aren't even deserving of one.

Holy shit, it's all coming back to me now! I used to be terrible when it came to handing out thumbs as back then I would give thumbs up even if I found a post the tiniest bit amusing or if it contained a reference to something I enjoy like The Simpsons or Rocko's Modern Life. I guess the only explanation I have is that I was engaged in this stupid board drama that I would absent-mindedly give thumbs up to some of these posts. It's shit like this that makes me wonder how I still happen to have given below 2000 thumbs. Especially considering that there are quite a few posts that me and OSS are the only two people who have given our thumbs to that post.

Apologies to @Ryan and @steamed_hamms for those thumbs. It was a gross misuse of the thumbs up system and I hate to say this to both of you, but you really didn't deserve them. Especially you, Ryan. Trying to sleep when the sun is rising is no laughing matter.

    You show genuinely funny posts and go all like "OH NO THIS IS NOT FUNNY ANYMORE". It's not interesting, give us some posts it's understandable you are ashamed of thumbing instead.

    I'm sorry, I thought this was supposed to be an understandable post that I am ashamed of thumbing.

    We disagree with each other. That's fine.
    Let's cut a deal: you post a comment on my latest blog that is related to the video's actual content and I promise not to lend any more complaints on your blog series.

    I really don't care if you stop complaining about the series or not, but I will leave a blog comment because I was going to do it anyways.

    As for the quoted post, I guess I could see how one would see it as funny, but as for me I thought it would qualify as a post that's more then "How did I find this funny back then?". I did find one that doesn't fall that category and it's one that will be seen as funny by no one, so that one is coming up next.

    That post or the thread in general?
  9. Ryan's Avatar
    no... that entire thread.

    which I just got a thumbs up for something in there by oss which by default must mean I was painfully wrong about all of it like I suspected
