Or at least a warnification about self-linkification.

posted by squealy at 06:24 PM on June 08

self-linkification is an abomination of sportsfilteration.

[DonKingText = "1"] In all of this great and wonderfulized nation of Sporfilteration, never have we laid our wearyfied eyes upon the dastardly provocation of evilness like the unmitigated, unjustifiable, unhumanicized self-linkification. When our bewitching, captivating and glamourized land is assailed and defiled by this repugnant, repulsive, and revolting affrontery, we have to take up our arms and throw down our gauntlets and cauterize this festering wound before it envelops us all!

there has been a deletefication of the self-linkification with a slight warnification of the abomination to the sportsfilteration. much appreciation to the squealy nation.

I always pictured WC2K2's voice as a bit higher in tone and British, but sly and sarcastic like Mr. Belvedere. I'm right, aren't I?

Resist self-linking we must. Submit to the Dark Side we must not.

I get to be George Lucas. From now on, you will be much, much less entertaining.

That makes me Jabba the Hutt, I think. This Carbolite stuff doesn't do shit.

I got dibs on Natalie Portman. Suckers.

Can I be Luke? I have a talent for being whiny and dense. Plus my dad can still totally kick my ass.

Oooh...can I reprise my role as Princess Leia's slave costume??? =D

MeatSaber: I already think your Star Wars role is pretty clear. BigCalm as r2d2 hilarious is. Wet his pants laughing, Yoda has.

posted by worldcup2002 at 12:21 PM on June 09

Biddybiddybeepbeep. BigC has mastered the Force of Comedic Timing. Laughing hysterically, Yoda still is. Crumpled over in the corner, Yoda has become. Jedi training is nothing in the face of BigComedy!

Since I'm from the south, would BubbaFet be out of line?

I got dibs on Natalie Portman. Suckers. Damnit, I knew I felt a disturbance in the Force... I can't believe I picked Carrie Fisher over Natalie Portman.

posted by dusted at 04:22 PM on June 09

Mmm yes a disturbance Yoda has also felt. But not in the Force.

I get to be the Millenium Falcon so I can go into hyperdrive and get the fuck away from you plonkers!

Is that the ship that made the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs?

I can't believe I picked Carrie Fisher over Natalie Portman. You can't really compare players from different eras.

I got dibs on Natalie Portman. Suckers. I'll take Sab from Phantom Menace. Who is that, you say? Look her up.

posted by grum@work at 08:05 AM on June 10

Have you seen 'Pirates of the Carribean?' Quality Keira all over that piece. You can't really compare players from different eras. Yeah, the equipment just ain't the same as it used to be. Gotta love progress.

dammit, grum...you beat me to it...

posted by MeatSaber at 09:11 AM on June 10

Have you seen 'Pirates of the Carribean?' Quality Keira all over that piece. Oh, I have seen it. Enjoyed it too. And "Bend It Like Beckham", but not for the same reasons. My reference to "look her up" was the fact that her character is barely mentioned and not too many SW-geeks would know who played her in the movie.

Hey, is it just me or was Sportsfilter just down for like 4 hours?

Just you. Stop drinking.

No, it was fucked up for a while. I almost started crying. ?? ? ?

Boy, those codes didn't come out right AT ALL.

We put sportsfilter on the same broken down server in a closet metafilter is on, and you see the results.

I think I saw that carved into a Trapper Keeper once. Right next to the Van Halen logo (which, criminally enough, there are no ASCII codes for UTF-VH anyone?).

I just heard that Carved into a Trapper Keeper Van Halen logo thing somewhere... and I can't place it.

Sorry. Unless you're reading my thoughts, I have no idea where you're seeing my material in advance. But I'd like to get a hold of the bastard that's using it.

If the presuppositions that have hitherto been current are to melt away in a full dissolution, they must not be dissolved into a higher presupposition again - a thought, or thinking itself, criticism. For that dissolution is to be for my good; otherwise it would belong only in the series of innumerable dissolutions. I'm with Max on this one
