Sorry if this has already done the rounds, but I just got shown this and I haven't laughed as much in ages.
I love the one with batman in it and the one where he mentions the drill
and the person drawing these is spot on.
evil yet wonderful.
any sensation you may experience is just an unfortunate effect of your excessively sensitive nerve endings in combination with the incidental spatial-temporal position of the molecules of my fist
that's so completely different. You're actually physically tou- nevermind. Must be pretty shit going through life actually believing your emotions are literally in the hands of other people's actions. Enjoy it.
the thing is i'm not even saying you should tip toe around sensitive subjects or lie to people to protect them, but just being mean for no other reason than to be mean - how is that helpful to anybody? people will always try and argue that they just don't give a fuck man, it's just their humour who gives a fuck, but there's really no excuse for expending your energy and time belittling other people. it's pathetic.
as caricatures i can see how they're funny, but the whole hivemind "lol look at these uggos" thing it's clearly meant to inspire is hateful and juvenile.
I don't walk past "ugly" people in the street and laugh at them, either externally or internally. I'm sure to a lot of people I am probably an ugly looking person. Besides, half the people this person drew aren't even "ugly".
The comedy lies in the fact that this person, whoever they are (there is nothing to say it isn't a black female doing it - yes it appears to be from a motoring forum and posted by a man, but surely the nitpickers and moralist police on here shouldn't be making such assumptions) has not only had the idea, but had audacity to do it and pull it off in such glorious fashion.
Whether it is mean or wrong or even racist doesn't even come into it. Me finding this funny makes me none of these things, and neither does it make you any of these things.
nor indeed audacious, as he's taunting these women from behind the safety of his computer screen. Cowardly is the adjective that springs to mind, in fact.
I'll admit, I got a cheap laugh out of a few of these. Cheap is what it is though, and racism of the "can't see blacks in a coal mine" quality is very, very low regardless of what your skin colour is.
I can see why you might think it is racist, and yeah, perhaps the person that drew it is racist. Perhaps it was actually Jim Davidson drawing it from behind the safety of his computer screen. Perhaps it was Oprah Winfrey now she is out of work? Who knows?
But all of them are so wonderfully executed in completely different ways. But then, that's just my opinion isn't it etc etc
so you're saying the comedy comes from the sheer effort that the person put into it? like somebody else said, this has been done loads, notably by the spider-drawing guy - the thing is that one was funny because he was being elaborate and bizarre for no apparent reason (although yes i know it's probably fake) this one just feels like he's going to huge lengths in order to make fun of some innocent people.
i don't see how it being mean or racist doesn't come into it, you realise fans of jim davidson probably say "well it's just a bit fun innit"
not even come into it? why does comedy always get the special status of existing in a social vacuum? sometimes things can be funny *and* offensive and nasty and distateful, and i'm not sure why it's such a big problem to admit and analyse that. laughing at nasty internet stuff doesn't make you a terrible person, but the internet has an obnoxious tendency to get defensive and outraged at the very idea of thinking critically about comedy. it's this weird little hivemind mentality that goes IF IT'S FUNNY THEN IT'S FUNNY AND YOU'RE NOT ALLOWED TO SAY ANYTHING ELSE ABOUT IT EXCEPT THAT IT'S FUNNY and if anyone says anything else about it then they're a big humourless bedwetting liberal and probably also fat and ugly, cos empathy is fucking uncool
and abandoned the reply and re-read your post, and sorry, I just can't grasp what you're on about.
Are you suggesting that me or somebody else is having a go at you for analysing comedy? I seriously have no idea what you mean.
If you are referring to my post about people not being humans that was clearly (I thought) a deliberately rubbish riposte to wishpig calling anyone who found it funny an idiot.
I'm fully confident you are a human.
just a point about the general nature of the weird internetty attitude towards comedy and nastiness, sparked off by your last line about morals/politics/social effects not coming into it which is very much in line with that attitude. nobody is 'having a go' at me in particular but there have obvs been a decent few snidey internetty posts about DiS liberals and morality police and blah blah which imply that analysing comedy in critical terms is just lame and uncool and hysterical. i don't care if you find it funny or not and i don't agree with wishpig that laughing at it makes you an automatic idiot, i'm just asking *why* you'd insist that nastiness and racism 'don't come into it' cos the whole dismissive MORALITY POLICE snideyness is fucking annoying
I don't sit there, look at it completely blankly, then decide whether I am allowed to find it funny, or even ask myself the questions "is this funny?" ... "should I laugh at it?", I just laugh at it. Otherwise the moment is gone and I don't laugh. Because that would be weird.
I laugh, therefore it is funny. To me. Therefore any moral, political, social, antisocial, biological, and palientological factors don't come into it because I have already laughed.
PS. Sorry if I hurted your feelings by being a snideywidey :-(
why is instinctive laughter the *only* thing we're allowed to talk about when it comes to comedy? it's like saying 'well this film really impressed and moved me with its fantastic cinematography when i first saw it, so i refuse to discuss whether the narrative angle has racist undertones. i enjoyed it, therefore all moral, social and political factors don't come into it because i have already enjoyed it'. again: things can be funny *and* offensive. you can find something instinctively funny and still acknowledge that it's shit or nasty or dodgy when considered rationally and empathetically (as a bunch of people have already done in this thread, like parsefone and bumbler). but lols are sacred for people who still think 4chan is cool
I have not said that it isn't. It is certainly not something I would choose to do myself, and I agree, if it was actually carried out how it seems it was, it was probably quite cruel too in some of the cases. But the person has done it already, we cannot change that, and laughing at it affects nothing.
I'm not gonna sit here and have some academic discussion about the mechanics of comedy with you because that is not a fun thing to do. I started the thread because I thought some people would also find it funny, which they did. Good. I didn't bank on the negative reaction from some areas.
Have a lovely, wonderful day.
But... this is the internet. The pulsing core of it is fuelled by negative reaction and unicorn tears.
i'm not *making* you feel fear when i smash through your bedroom window in the middle of the night and come at you shrieking with a massive fuck-off kitchen knife. i'm not *making* you feel upset and angry when i tell you that i just tortured and then drowned your new puppy. those '''emotions''' are only happening because you're obvs just too weak to control the chemical and physical reactions that occur in your brain during every interaction with the outside world, and that's definitely not *my* fault. must be pretty shit going through life devoid of empathy
...from your posts in this thread you seem like the most likely person here to actually do these things.
and so does the picture of her!
Best one was the yellow curly haired one and black one where he simplified them to a mere colour
He's got skill
but then again i'm allowed to
why so aggressive to people?
Also apart from the one racist pic, the drawings were pretty cruel, but everyone knows laughing at a persons physical appearance is lowest common denominator humor anyway.
I'm just also aware they was easy laughs.
if you're gonna be a massive bants worshipper you should at least be consistent about it
and the next day
way to state the obvious
for not going with the obvious 'dick'.
but mean-spirited and possibly racist. I laughed, and then I felt a bit grubby. Am I normal?
we must not question them. AUTOFILL.
and if you don't get it you're a stuffy old fascist moralist with no poetic soul. critical thinking, fuck right off
punctuation for punctuation's sake
LEAVE OUR INTERNET SHABS AND BANTS ALOOONE
you're all massive wrightylews
Had it been posted on a Tuesday just before lunchtime it would have said all the same stuff but it would have taken 600 posts to say it all.
but the batman and ''black-out'' ones really made me laugh.
It's the ''Spider picture email exchange'', but minus the charm.
Spocks, the lotta you
also wtf is a spock
I've never heard anyone say spook before. LURN SUMIN NEW ERYDAY ETC ETC
Some sort of Joker reference was the best I could come up with.
Her real pic looks a lot like the Joker, but the fact that the sketch looks less like the Joker was putting me off.
they won't sleep with you you know
and for that I solute you
I had that 79 year old 2 weeks ago, and she was good!
girls in question: not reading thread
of course it totally couldn't be because it's completely hateful and moronic and you have to lie to yourself about the people objecting to justify your finding of it amusing?
you not liking it much when me and klaire made fun of your personal appearance and inability to spell a couple of years back. I think in fact you politely asked me stop, which I did. Funny old world
I had a giggle at a couple of pictures and then got accused of being many things (not directly but with blanket statements) so I just did the same in a manner I don't actually believe but you know... whatever
For all those people in case you don't know, you aren't REALLY trying to score with some e-chicks and for those for you that actually thought I thought you were human beans that think I actually meant it when you were non-functioning because you didn't like a couple of pictures then I'm sorry.
me saying "suck me tits". yeah.
Just thought i'd through my hat in the ring here. My insight is probably highly valued.
yeah 4chan cunts that think they are heros because they laugh about torture porn or whatever while the rest of the world doesnt give a fuck and therefore anyone who doesn't find this like the most hilarious thing ever because some guy's done some charicatures of people and he just doesnt give a fuck can fuck off
on the site irrespective of their level of beauty. Picking on the uggers is pretty cruel and not really where the humour in it lies. But I still laughed. Lock me up and throw away the key, again.
yeah that would've made for a cracking joke. I guarantee this is the only place on the entire internet where this discussion has arisen. You people will wet the bed about literally anything. Obviously the racists ones are out of line but having a laugh a bad cartoon renderings? OFF LIMITS.
Get the fuck over yourself, everyone.
i'll let you work out where you are at the moment.
fey stuck up bed wetters, with people who have taste and standards
Didn't really know what to expect, but I was expecting something better/worse than this.
MS Paint portraits. Hahahahahahahahahahaha. Fair enough, some of 'em raise half a laugh, but it's all a bit meh innit.
EXCEPT! it's trolling! which makes it funnier, right? unsuspecting victims! viva la internet!
EXCEPT! it's not trolling. it really, really isn't. trolling requires that you gain the trust of the 'trollee'. this is just a simple hit and run. like the funniest* type of comedy - prank calling.
*shittest. worse than chubby brown. or even michael macintyre.
AND! even if it were trolling, that adds roughly nowt to the whole thing. presumably the responses were mostly pretty much "meh.", otherwise there would've been some sort of comedy borne out of the ensuing dialogue. in which case, why not just do some funny portraits of randoms rather than piss around with the dating site (LOL, SAD FUCKERS!) angle? Bamnans imagined MS Paint portraits on here were approximately 36 times funnier than this waste of time.
AND! look at the replies in that thread that's linked to. a bunch of cliched fake OTT responses (coffee on keyboard! had to stop reading it was SO funny!) riddled with the very worst thing of all that can be found on the internet: numerous wanky animated smileys. if my idea of TEH SUPERLOLZ got the pisspoor youtube-level of response, as per that thread, i'd have to start asking myself a few soul-searching questions.
here we go.
4chan has been cited as the lowest of the low in comedy terms, but this is way way way sub-4chan.
and anyway, i love me a cheap pointless dafty meme (especially the generic face + stripey background + text ones like Philosoraptor &c.), and a whole bunch of those come from there, so i don't think the slur is /entirely/ fair anyway. hey ho.
Because if it is, can you all stop posting, yeah? Except Smudger and beefCAKE_69.
