What Is The Funniest Post On DL That You Have Ever Read?

Seriously, the funniest post. The one that made you completely lose it. I'll go first.

The funniest post I ever read was of a woman here who recounted her memory of losing her virginity. It was her Quinceanera, the Hispanic party celebrating a girl's 15th birthday. Her mother made her wear an elaborate dress. However, she failed to mention one important detail prior to diving into her sexcapade. She proceeded to tell of how the boy and her snuck away and how they made out. Then she said he slipped his hand down her diaper and began to finger her. Yep. She just nonchalantly stated that she was wearing a diaper and the guy reached his hand into it and fingered her pussy. She forgot to mention that she was forced to wear a diaper because of the dress. I lost it. I spit my drink. I was laughing so hard I started seeing stars and got dizzy. I didn't stop laughing until maybe 30-40 minutes later, with repeat rounds of laughter every time I thought about the diaper for days afterwards.

I kind of got a kick out of the guy who took a video with his Razr phone of himself jacking off, and then accidentallysent it to everyone in his phone book.

The thing that kind of ruined it for me is that I had a Razr phone and figured out that accidentally sending a video involved about seven specific steps.

Though, if the story was real, it would have been especially funny.

The posts weren't intentionally funny, but I loved the vengeful GG posts.

After his threads and posts were deleted by the webmaster, or maybe he was banned, he would go into other threads claiming he was posting from Belgium and the webmaster would never stop him from using various IPs.

I was pretty new here when I read "I'm Not Running a B&B Here." The combination of helpful advice (where to find affordable towels, essential food items to keep in the home) mixed with vicious and withering condemnation still makes me laugh today.

R1, same here. I had the same phone, and IIRC it wasn't hard to accidentally "send to all", as the technology wasn't as smart as it is now.

by Anonymousreply 909/24/2014

IIRC, the sequence of sending the video on the Razr was something like accidentally navigating to the "send" option, then, when it's time to type in the name of the recipient, accidentally selecting to choose the recipients from your phone book, then accidentally navigating to "all," accidentally choosing "all," and accidentally selecting "ok."

Which made me picture the poor guy accidentally navigating to the "send" option and then frantically trying to not accidentally selecting the recipients from the phone book.

"Famous JonBenets Throughout History"

by Anonymousreply 1609/24/2014

I was new to DL and didn't realize that most people could spot a made-up thread instantly.

This thread was about some gay man whose boyfriend had been killed in a car accident and the family wouldn't let him attend the funeral.

The first reply, far from expressing the sympathy I expected, was "Oh, for God's sakes".

After I figured it out, I giggled for days.

Oh God, R16, "Famous JonBenets Throughout History" was priceless. It had the best DL attributes--endless cleverness plus snark, but none of the vileness that wrecks so many other threads. I hope someone saved that thread.

The possum in a drawer thread (R6) definitely gets honorable mention because it was so goofy--a DL poster found a possum nesting in his dresser drawer and was totally freaking out. So of course he turned to DL for humane removal advice and therapy. And neither thread led itself to freeper hijacking. Sigh.

Surreal TV Moments:

Years ago, during the ACT-UP era, a local station did a remote interview with an activist who called himself "Luke Sissyfag."

I don't remember the gist of the interview, just the caption that said "LUKE SISSYFAG: AIDS ACTIVIST," and the very conservative anchorman who looked like he was going to throw up. The funniest was at the interview: "All right. Thank you, Luke Sissyfag."

R50 that comes from a blog or something someone posted to, written by a frau with an autistic 5 year old. The child was upset because the cheeseburger he ordered in a restaurant was "broken" (cut in two). So the Frau ordered a new one and when the waitress brought it he alledgely reacted by repeatedly say "fank you!!!" for fixing his "broken" cheeseburger. The blogger transcribe each "fank you!!!'"

The blog post was off-the-charts with entitled mommydom and spoiled child coddling, so it was quite the hit on DL.

The OP told this incredibly looong story (all in the same goddamn paragraph, too) about trying to purchase some unusual cheese at a deli, and the woman behind the counter wouldn't sell him all of that cheese. Why? Because she didn't know him!

So after finally getting through the huuuuge opening post, the very first reply was "What kind of cheese was it?"

And the fucking OP wouldn't reply, for days!

Until finally, someone pretended to be the OP, and said that the special cheese was white velveeta. All that, over white Velveeta!

My two favorites are two very small threads that seemed to occupy only a few of us.

The one was the "Pete Burns Has Low Hangers" thread. Someone had posted a photo of ol' Pete in a torn up wedding dress (I believe). He was crooning away on what looked like a picnic table with the dress hiked up to his hips and that fruit just a dangling to his knees. One horrified poster stated, "I don't know what bothers me more - the bored look of the audience or the turd laying under him!" (it was a cigar butt that truly resembled a turd).

The second was "If Nostradamus Was a Vampire, Why Didn't He Live Forever?" or some such nonsense. Fury commenced and one helpful poster wondered if maybe the OP had confused Nostradamus with the Cosa Nostra. That still makes me laugh.

I remember checking back in on the thread where the EST writer "confessed" later that day and it was gone, as were all those ESTs he claimed to have written. People were up in arms and ranting, but their rants were deleted quickly, then we had PT for days and days. I have NO idea what happened but it must have been epic.

At first, it was all right. We lived sinlessly. We slept in the same bed, but we never did it. And then, that night, I saw him looking down at me that way. We got down on our knees to pray for strength. I smelled the whiskey on his breath. Then he took me. He took me, with the stink of filthy roadhouse whiskey on his breath, and I liked it. I liked it! With all that dirty touching of his hands all over me. I should've given you to God when you were born, but I was weak and backsliding, and now the devil has come home. We'll pray.

One of the Lucy threads was talking about the "Fashion Show" episode with all the star's wives, and one of the posts was signed by "Mrs. Forrest Tucker, straddling a block of ice." I chuckled for days on that one and I don't think I'll ever see the episode again without remembering that.

"What a Queer Day I've Had", circa 2001, was one of the funniest things ever; it related a story in which the OP managed to be racially offensive in every single sentence, yet stayed on the correct side of the p.c. fence: "I'm rather niggardly with my money, but I do like to keep things spic and span, so I hired a British housekeeper who smoked fags while she was working and commented on my figurine collection, 'Such a cute little camel, jockeying for position between the two Hummels..."

GREAT thread! Lots of references for past fun threads and many laughs. I read this in a doctor's waiting room -- yearly physical , just routine -- and fell on the floor several times. I think some thought I was in the wrong room, should have been at a psychiatrist's office. A lady waiting, being nice, asked what I was "plotzing" about. Thinking myself still new to DL & not posting often, now I see why many have been reading here for years. Count me in. Someone asked "tell me about yourself' and I said look at DL, this thread at R41, R148 & R211. If you get it you get me. And thank you R212, I think you nailed it about why anyone stays here.

I may be the only one who remembers this, but about 10 years ago when "American Idol" was popular someone started a thread called "Words Bucky Covington Doesn't Understand."

It was mildly amusing as people chimed in with terms like "chiffonade" and "pret-a-porter," but then some queen flipped her shit and started raving about how "self-loathing" the whole thread was... which was even funnier.

There also was another contestant who referred to Southern rock as his preferred "jandra" of music. After that, "jandra" got substituted a lot for "genre" on the DL, and inevitably someone in every thread would pipe up with, "It's GENRE, not JANDRA! What kind of IDIOT are you?"

All except the prof excused themselves very shortly afterwards.

There was a thread forever ago that parodied the toothless "gossip" items that old movie magazines used to publish. People would write a paragraph about old Hollywood stars caught in banal offenses such as forgetting to feed a parking meter or losing a coat button, then cap them with an italicized exclamation containing a related, yet horrible pun. I loved those, as I love most of our creative writing threads, like the celebrity death haikus. They've fallen out of favor today, but the Michfest threads are the best legacy of that time. "Dark Lesbians" was a nice callback as well.

I'm not a follower of the Broadway threads or a reader of the Broadway World board, but there's not much in the world that tickles me like an mlop parody post.

After a minute or two of his blathering, I walked right up to him, got in his face and said: "Where the hell did you learn to whisper? A sawmill?! It's my body and my business... I suggest you get out of my sight before I decide to make you sing soprano for the rest of your miserable life. What are you waiting for fool?! I said MOVE IT!" Needless to say, he quickly scurried out of the store with his tail tucked between his legs.

I am the OP who created "Sows at the Trough"--still a paying member after all these years. I am happy to report that about 18 months ago our office closed, and most of us were reassigned to work from home. We had seen a major decrease in the amount and type of food and food gifts brought in by vendors--sign of the times. If you recall, SATT was created just because a rep brought in a couple dozen bagels and they all stampeded in to grab them. However, I can still recall the bitter fights and tears over who got "dibs" on the popcorn tins, the little jelly jars, and so on. It was ludicrous. I never thought the thread would take off the way it did--I guess it was just a testimonial to sow behavior and how universal it was, and still evidently is. I'm glad I'm out of it. I have enjoyed and participated in many, many DL threads through the years. I actually have DL fave David Ehrenstein to thank for bringing me to it. I used to love's old "Table Talk" forums, back when they were free, and when they started charging, DE signed off by saying he would be "over at the Datalounge." So I owe him a big vote of thanks for getting me here, even though he does not appear to be much of a presence here any longer. I think DL still has the potential it always has had for creating "classic" threads, and I loved them all: the WTC, Ben and Matt, Dustin DeWind, Red Dragon cheese, Claire, and the Helen Lawson threads. I think there is a tendency to start immediate threads on so-called "hot topics" (do we really need ALL those DWTS threads?) But for all its flaws, I still feel that DL has ten times the wit, intelligence, humor, sage advice and even personal compassion than most of the chat sites out there. It is ours to make whatever we will, and if it is lacking we have no one to blame but ourselves. I'm sticking around.

by Anonymousreply 31010/07/2014

Over 300 posts and none mention two classics -- which, like an earlier poster said, saved me from a truly depressed state, thank you DL.

I thought it might've been one of those "Had to be There" things but I showed them to a friend a few months ago, long after they were posted, and we were giggling all over again. So, in my humble opinion, NOTHING tops:

The guy live posting "I Slept with Janie Lane", asking for advice about saying goodbye and then he pokes him awake and gets screamed at as he races out of the house, bumping into furniture. It makes me laugh typing this. Especially if you add in the fictional cafton flowing behind him as he runs.

But the all time champ, one I can't BELIEVE hasn't been mentioned, is the Margarine Fountain. It was my intro to DL and I haven't left. When I need a laugh, I just google "Margarine Fountain" and it takes me right where I need to go. I loved the poster who said "PLEASE do it and take photos! Have some Aloe Vera on hand for the burns".

This thread has made me laugh all over again. Not to get gushy but thanks for the wit, DL.

"Somewhere on this floor of the house" - so you have your own house, and the issue isn't coming from a restaurant on the premises, or a crazy neighbor with rodentophilia?

One day she broke into his place, rolled the barrel to the sidewalk, threw in gasoline and a match, and as they shot out flaming she stood there shooting them with a pistol.

There was a thread about most embarrassing incidents in your life which had me crying with laughter. This poor guy who got drunk at a backyard barbecue and twirled around to some Hootie and the Blowfish song until he ran into the grill and knocked it into the pool made me laugh so hard I got the hiccups.

Guy starts a thread about jacking off to a pop star. Another poster starts asking questions: [italic]What do you look like? What were you wearing? Were you in bed? On the couch? Did you just take your cock out of the hole in your boxers? Where did you come? How much come was there? What was Davy doing when you came? Did you press pause to come? How old are you and how big is your cock? Cut or uncut? What do your sheets look like? How did you wipe up all that copious cum? Can you post a photo of your cock or at least your boxers?[/italic]

OP not only answers questions (in a very organized fashion!), but POSTS PHOTO of his cum stained underwear as popstar looks on.

Mary! enters thread and is shocked (SHOCKED!!) at the cummy-drawers.. Yet another poster posts photo of pearl clutching madam aimed at Mary!

No one will ever believe me, but I credit myself for being responsible for "more questions than answers" taking off. There was some thread on some movie, at least ten years ago and probably more, with some totally innocuous, normal film - nothing that could even remotely be classified as a confusing mystery. The OP posted a thread saying "I Just Saw [Whatever] And Now I Have More Questions Than Answers!" and I went off on him. Then we saw that thread everywhere, for every film from then on.

That Davy Jones / cum-stained drawers thread reminded me of another old thread where some (cute!) guy actually posted his face shot and a picture of his dick, with lots of encouragement from posters.

I remember after he put up the photos he said something like "Well, okay now that you've seen my dick I think I'll leave now", to which some other poster replied, "Story of my life."

That got a good chuckle out of me...

One of the wackier threads I remember from way back when: "My chum is MEAN about my glass eye!" The OP was posting about being made fun of by his friend for his glass eye, and for some reason an insane poster was filling the thread with random unrelated screaming replies calling him a BITCH! and a CUNT!, etc.

In the middle of this craziness, another poster asks the question: "OP, have you ever gone up to a guy in a bar, popped out your eye and put it on top of his head, given him a wink and said 'I've got my eye on you!' Well, have you?"

I ended up crying I was laughing so hard.

In the thread about the guy who poisoned his neighbor's loud dog to death by feeding it raw meatballs stuffed with Xanax, OP was panicking about what he'd done and said he was considering getting them a new dog to replace it.

That was when one of the posters said (paraphrasing): "Here's what you do. You find an old lady walking her dog down the street. You shove a Xanax-stuffed meatball down her throat, grab the log's leash, and RUN."

I was laughing so hard I thought I was going to piss my pants.

There was a thread about two (or four) guys moving into an apartment in the OP's building. I think he was able to see them move in from his window and he was sure the hot one would be interested in him. Hijinks ensue. I actually don't remember what happened I just remember laughing until I cried because it was all so ridiculous (in a good way).

The funniest post was about Faye Dunaway driving past the entrance of blockbuster video and throwing her returns on the sidewalk and driving away, honking the horn or something. I'm laughing now just typing this.

In the Dialing a Phone With a Pencil thread I loved the tale of the southern boy touring an old mansion with his family and a group. The guide pointed out an ornate lamp or something, and the little gay-boy busted out, "Isn't that just darling!" The entire tour group dissolved in laughter, as did I, in the mortified memory of what a little fruitcake I too had been.

I like R14's explanation of the lyrics to Mack the Knife. The thread was titled "I don't understand the Jack Knife song."

"It's about a knife named Jack, OP. Suki Tawdry and Jenny Diver were cooks at the palace. They were always fighting over the best knife, Jack. The King -- Louie Miller -- got tired of their bickering and gave the knife to Miss Lotte Lenya. Lotte Lenya decided to share it with Lucy Brown, so they made a rule to line up on the right to use Jack Knife."

"I accidentally said 'I love you' at the end of a phone call with my boss" had me doubled over laughing. The guy was freaked out because he was having a face to face meeting with said boss a couple of hours later and he hoped his boss didn't even hear the "I love you." The responses were great, including one from a queen who saw this as the further degradation of the once meaningful phrase into just a casual toss off at the end of every phone call to every friend and not something saved for our special relationships.

Like everybody else, the MichFest and pencil dialing were also my favorites.

He asked me something about being a workout buddy and I said 'No thanks' and went swimming.

I ran into him in the parking lot on my way out and he hissed at me. He didn't say anything, he just hissed.[/italic]

To the tune of "That's Entertainment." It was never finished but I loved the cleverness of the lyrics.

The jock, with the thirteen inch cock

In the scene with the horny Marine

See the toll that it takes on his hole

That's entertainment

The top, who is dressed as a cop

With the guy, who pretends to be bi

For a twist, he will squat on his fist

That's entertainment

The lean muscled teen who's too good to be true

A twink into kink in his porno debut

Mentored by Chi Chi LaRue

The bottom boy sensation, does double penetration

The sprite, claims his hole is too tight

Spreads his ass, soon it takes EZ Pass

First a kiss, then he'll bathe in your piss

The world is a stage

The stage is a world of entertainment

A punk full of spunk in a bottoming scene

The slut gives his butt to a skateboarding teen

You bet his asshole is clean

The first rule of producing

make sure your boys are douching.

The ditz, with the silicone tits

Chewing gum, while she's swallowing cum

It's by rote, that she's giving deep throat

That's entertainment

A rut with the slut with the glazed-over eyes

In bed she will spread her big cottage-cheese thighs

After she fucks thirty guys

Collectively they leave 'er

a jiz-encrusted beaver

Till my asshole smells like flowers

And my rectum's stretched and worn

But I try to be cheerful

Even though I've got an earful—

I just can't stop shitting corn!
