Clever Internet Comments

On the website reddit.com, there are lots of comments that truly make me happy to be alive. For example, I was reading through the comments on a thread about people being sick of all the attention the Wikileaks story is receiving, and I thought I’d share a few of my favorites.

Sometimes they can be enjoyed in isolation:

TheoreticalFunk: “Don’t believe all the quotes you read on the Internet” – Julius Caesar

PictureofPoritrin: “I am pretty sure I warned you guys allegorically.” – George Orwell

Other times it’s the way the comments build on the previous ones:

theparagon: “No government ought to be without censors & where the press is free, no one ever will.” – Thomas Jefferson, letter to George Washington, September 9, 1792

xtom: “No government ought to be without censors & where the press is free, no one ever will.”
…put some context on that quote and you’ll see he was talking about false political campaigns and claims, not legitimate/factual information.

theparagon: Very good. At least someone caught it. Though I’m not sure you understood my point. People should stop using quotes out of context.

njdfan1241: “People should stop using quotes out of context.” – theparagon, 2010.

Dereliction: “People should stop using quotes.” – the paragon, 2010.

mugwump10: “People should stop.” – theparagon, 2010.

Seaborgium: “People should…(quote) out of context.” – theparagon, 2010.

throwaway2481632: Fox News “People should…(quote) out of context.” – (D) theparagon, 2010. Some people say, an alleged rapist. When asked an opinion on the matter, Sarah Palin quoted that:
This is exactly the sort of thingy-ma-jig that the american people are tired of… big government and taxes should be cut, because jobs are vital to our economy and, hey joe dontchaknow, its all about context. – Sarah Palin

DemonPaladin: “Someone caught … people using context.” – the paragon 2010

wreckemtech: Very good. At least someone . . . understood my . . . quotes” – the paragon, 2010.

There are some clever people out there.
