You said it! One year of BOJ comments

Every time someone new goes to this site I always dread hearing their opinions.

Not because I think my work is sub-par. No, I think I am a genius word-smith.

It's you people I worry about.

Why?

Because without fail the first thing I hear about this site is "It's so funny... especially the comments at the bottom."

THE COMMENTS AT THE BOTTOM!!!

Sheesh.

Well, you guys are funny.

Truthfully, I often take credit for your work. I tell people I am actually Mr. Freeze, Hot Dog Vendor, Jason, CRAIG and Not Enough Duff.

I also once stabbed a man who asked if I was Jim Shorts.


So, lets take a look at some of the funny things YOU wrote during this year of posts:




Handwasher of the Dead said...
Ahh, I have missed Robert Reed so much. I remember when he passed away. I approached him and scrubbed his hands clean. They smelled like grapes.


Metal Mark said...
That was your best Jeffrey Tambor post ever...for what it's worth.


Katz said...
Fab. Just fab. I saw this in the theater when it came out. I remember that the floor was sticky. I don't recall the movie at all.


Strutter71 said...
I also own a PS2. No XBox here. I did, however, see these advertised on TV and wondered aloud who the hell would buy them?
I should have known the answer before I even asked the question.


Mr. Fuji said...
Oh the Shiek thinks he is so big... uh... oh yeah. Nevermind.


Jason said...
Not to nitpick but you did spell Calvin's name wrong in the fun facts section. You spelled it Chester A. Arthur.
My favorite Calvin is the almost unheard of Calvin and the Squirrels, which were an obvious knock off of Alvin and the Chipmunks.


Not Enough Cuffs said...
Cuffs is my favorite Christian Slater. I watch the film 2, maybe 4 times a day. I can't get enough of that film.
I'm going to watch it after I'm done posting.



Hot Dog Vendor said...
Yankee Doodles! Get your Yankee Doodles here! Can't enjoy the post without a Yankee Doodle.
Oh, btw, I am talking about the snack cake.


Don Muraco's Elbow Macaroni said...
Mmmmm. I'm delicious.


Todd The God said...
I also wonder why Chunk has two letters on his shirt.
I spend my saturdays playing scrabble and I use Chunk and company as playing peices.
I am filthy stinking rich.
This is the word of Todd.


Anthony Iron said...
You're the guy that stole my autographed picture!


Not Enough Hawk II said...
I started to get excited about this post then you started talking about Tony Hawk.
I am not a fan.
I like Road Warrior Hawk.
To save time, please pretend that I also posted an identical post about Hudson Hawk.


Jason said...
My favorite extra is the gum. Not the gum called Extra, though. I prefer Hubba Bubba. I think I remember seeing it in the background of some move.


Not Enough Fluff said...
I love stories on the news about water skiing racoons and dogs that were accidently issued credit cards. I wish the news did more stories about babies get jury summons!


Jim Shorts said...
Here's my list:
1. Foul
2. Foul
3. Upset about the war
4. Foul
5. Barb Wire


Mr. Freeze said...
Sweetie,
With all due respect, I have a different perspective on this event.
From what I recall, we went to Seattle for an event to honor Walter Lantz's nephew Roger Lantz and showcase some Mike Judge cartoons.
The first even we were attending was called "Two Decades of 'That Boy Ain't Right.' And Other Catch Phrases America Never Picked Up," and was being held at the King Music Theater, a 225-seat theater on Pike Street in Seattle.
There was a showing of Fantasia the night before, with a live orchestra, and we attended it.
Thom Cardwell, the Festival's executive director came on stage second. He was surrounded by two of the most gorgeous women I've ever seen. One was clearly his wife, while the other was his eldest daughter. He had a dumbbell in one hand and slapped his wife gently on the behind as she went behind the stage. He talked for a while about much he loves his wife and four kids.
Anyway, Thom introduced Roger Ebert, who introduced Roy Disney, who then introduced Roger Lantz.
Roger mentioned "….they had made a movie, all of you saw and shattered box office records everywhere called The Black Cauldron."
The audience remained silent. A tumbleweed blew across the stage. With a look of awe, Roger screamed, "Screw you! I don't need your charity, you bastards."
I seem to remember a different compilation of shorts, but all seven of them were just a montage of Hank Hill saying, "That boy Ain't Right." Including an odd short, where Hank, Bobby, Peggy, LuAnn, Dale, a toaster, Senn Penn, Ethan Hawke, a stapler and minature schnauzer were all played by Eddie Murphy.
Odd, I remember this so differently


Jay Leno's attorney said...
I am filing a cease and decist order in superior court over your use of a Joan Rivers joke.
That is Leno territory.


Jason said...
I haven't had a good philly cheesesteak in a long time. No one ever puts sauce on them any more. Where's the sauce, people?


I'M Da Bomb said...
I love this one. You know it was through the collaborative efforts of John Ford, Mervyn LeRoy, Joshua Logan and Henry Fonda that this version of Mister Rogers finally got made. As in Spartacus a lot of creative differences were aired and there was animosity, but the thing got made and got made well.
Is it the subtle script? The complex, yet subtle plot? Or is it just the powerful screen presence of the one and only Kenny Rogers? Whatever the formula for this cinematic tour de force, the result is the same: sheer excellence. Kenny Rogers establishes himself as one of the premier actors of our, or any, lifetime. Like other great pieces of cinema ("Citizen Kane" and DeSica's "Bicycle Thief" spring to mind immediately) "The Gambler" portrays that range of emotions so special to the human experience. A masterpiece.
Mister Rogers' Neighborhood in my opinion has been the best children's TV show on earth! I watch it sometimes on PBS during summer and holidays. My brothers like the show, too. The neighborhood of make-believe is fantastic in this awesome show. Mister Rogers' Neighborhood has been of the best excuses of this children's TV show. Mister Rogers is the adaptation of a play that ran on Broadway from 1948 to 1951 for 1157 performances. It was based on the novel written by Thomas Heggen and was directed by Joshua Logan. It marked a return to the stage for Henry Fonda who for the rest of his life shuttled back and forth between Broadway and Hollywood. Mister Rogers became his career signature part.
According to the book In the Company of Heroes by Harry Carey, Jr., Henry Fonda because this was his signature part, the part that won him a Tony Award on Broadway, he had a certain proprietary interest in seeing a faithful adaptation was done for the screen.
And what a boss they have. The role of the Captain is a very difficult part. Though there are certainly elements of comedy with the captain, James Cagney never allows the captain to become a figure of burlesque. It's a very difficult tightrope to walk, but Mr. Cagney brought over 30 years of professionalism to that part. During the scene of the cabin confrontation with Fonda, Cagney does go into his background, going to sea as a kid, doing a lot of menial jobs and rising through his own efforts in the Merchant Marine. We get to understand Cagney, but we never sympathize with him.
Even though Mister Rogers is a military setting, the themes are universal and that is why I think it got the popular acclaim it did. I think most of us in our lives as workers have occasionally had to work in settings where the boss was a tin pot dictator, using and abusing his position of authority. And maybe we've also had immediate supervisors who did buffer between the employer and the workers. I'm sure that applied to just about anyone who ever had any kind of work history. Mister Rogers is the only film I know that ever made boredom a component of a successful production.
Despite a difficult birthing, Mister Rogers has become an American classic and will be so as long as we have a planet.
**** out of **** stars and 10 out of 10 stars overall.


CRAIG said...
Have you ever heard Steven Spielberg say the word dinosaur? It's hilarious. If there was a picture of him saying it I would post it on Sweetie's Myspace page.


Michael "Kid" Blount said...
I was the one searching for sexy Egyptian women. I was hoping that she will be my girlfriend. Ok. bye


T-_Bone said...
Sweetie - I took my kids to this back in May, and they loved it. Hell, I loved it too. Any opportunity to have my photo take with Goofy is the bees knees.


Metal Mark said...
That looks like a huge board for the game Twister under the place where the Platypus lives.


The Taco Kid said...
I say you keep the Fred Flintstone shirt in the closet.


CRAIG said...
Perhaps everyone had a drinking problem because beer was .85 cents! Hell, I don't drink, but if beer was .85 cents I might take a shot.


Strutter71 said...
I saw Popeye in the theatre when I was a kid and liked it at the time.
Then, I saw it a few years ago on cable and wondered what the hell my younger self was smoking at the time.


Jason said...
Steely Dan, now you're just making things up. Everyone knows there's no such thing as an undersea accountant. Their paper would be soggy and the calculator wouldn't work.


Metal Mark said...
I remember watching Al Snow in Smoky Mountain wrestling around 94-95 and he was hilarious and a sound wrestler as well.


T-_Bone said...
Either they sound like Chuck Norris films or Queensryche records


Evel Knievel Fan said...
You know what would be AWESOME?? If someone in Maryland built this, like, major ramp and Evel Knievel tried to jump over the Mid-Atlantic states and land in Massachusetts. He could, like totally take off in Baltimore and touch down in Boston. Oh man that would be SSSSSSSWWWWWEEEETTTT!!


Justin said...
Why have you blurred the Mice Chat image? Is it accusing William Kennedy Smith of something?


Ben Savage said...
Stop lying, Fred. You and Paul Pfeiffer did that one tme. Remember? You got caught and learned a valuable lesson.


Donald Duck said...
Quackety quack quack.


The Taco Kid said...
As an openly straight guy with a gay guy for an avatar I wish to state that I too found the title hysterical.


A Town Savage said...
I tried gum in the lock trick once. For some reason that street smelled like shoe polish all day.

Guy Sweetie...
Is this your little way of addressing the ilegal alien issue? Laughing bout spanish speaking people....how cruel. Next thing your gonna be talking about is singing the national anthem in portugese?


Sweetie fan said...
I love mashed potatoes, but I can't imagine putting any of that stuff in there. Maybe I would have to make it a baked potato party.


CRAIG said...
I'm amazed that no one attempted to eat "The Island" poster. It looks simply delicious!


Daniel Striped Tiger said...
Sorry. I hit my head on the ceiling of my tiny cubicle and forgot who I was.


Jason said...
Cancer? Kevin Costner made a few movies about baseball. I am so glad they don't cause cancer. Bull Durham, For Love of the Game, even Dances With Wolves is kind of about baseball. But not mustaches. It's tough to choose whether I like "with" or "without." Think of how conflicted Burt Reynolds would be. Think about it. Imagine the panic that would grip the nation if we found out that mustaches were infecting the faces of men everywhere. For example: if a hot chick was about to trip and fall I would have a better chance to catch her if I went with the "without" look. They both have their advantages. Costner is the home team, the wild west is Dodger Stadium and that guy who played the painter on "Murphy Brown" is Hee-Seop Choi. I bet he would keep the mustache. Of course, if it was a smelly dude who was covered in marmalade "with" would probably give me better excuse for not helping him. You know, because so many cool things seem to cause cancer. I love mustaches. Or being mustache-less. Hypocrite. I also bet Morgan Spurlock would shave his 'stache. Of course you never want to


There it is. I hope one of your comments made the cut... if not, there is always next year.

I also made sure not to include any context so your comments make no sense. That way I can use this as PROOF when I say that you guys aren't funny without my post to to give it context. Hee hee hee.

In all honesty, however, your comments are a very important part of the humor on bunchojunk.com. When I started, people had to click to a separate page to read the comments. I changed that as soon as I could figure out how.

If my posts are the cake, your comments are the icing.

And our cake is full of bad grammar and typos.

Man, I am soooo hungry right now.
