This is a good place to drop general and weird news, entertainment, and general show prep material that might be interesting to air talent or producers. Hot dog threads ALWAYS welcome.

just wrong...

Post by Zak Tyler » Fri Mar 30, 2007 11:27 am

ok, i was just looking at my station website, and I think our webguy is dipping his toe in the comedy pool. we finished our battle of the bands last night. and it was a 5 judge/5 point system. and this is what I see on the site this morning...
Chaos Theory outpointed Knuckle and Underground Press in the finals of MAX-FM's Shut Up and Rock! 4 Troops! Congratulations!

You mean how Clinton would use his knuckle as a pointing finger because it was perceived as less annoying and threatening and holier-than-thou than an actual finger?

That isn't political; that's probably the example of "the knuckle" that best and most-quickly pops the mental image of what's being discussed. Without the name, your brain doesn't know what image to costruct, and, without the following descriptives, your brain doesn't know where to focus.

By the way, if that's not the joke Zak was pointing out, then I don't get it, either.

Hey class, as you may be tempted to, do not reply to this thread until Zak has cleared it up.

If it IS what Zak was talking about, I'll let it stand...If not, I'm wiping Arps comments.

well, see when i read it today it's not quite as funny.... but Arp is in the ballpark. i don't even know the word for it, but the visual i got was someone pointing with just their knuckle, and some one else UBER triumphant that they out "pointed" the other by simply extending the finger.... ok, maybe it was only funny at the time, and didn't translate too well. sorry for the confusion, put your muskets and pitchforks away, there's nothing to see here.
[edit]

BITCHES!!!

[/nunley edit for grammar] thanks for keepin' me straight, i'm not the smartestest fukr around these parts.

You forgot to add the word "bitches" to the end of your last post. Learn some grammar. Bitch.
