Survivor Sucks

Survivor Sucks A nice little site which rips every reality show apart quite nicely, but my favorite is the "Off Topic" section where threads on any subject offer up some of the best trolling/flamebait and some very funny comments. More inside...

Try this thread: Go Fucking yourselves..."Some body stupid here maked a call to my store today asking for Kanjeet! How come this person is trying to call me for what? STOP THIS YOU BIG STUPID ASS HEAD! I am not coming here anymore like I was said last time, so now you are still bother me in my life, so get your self fucked, OK? STUPIDS! Goodbye again". Some of the comments in this thread are classics and sorta remind me of something.

Yeah, Mack, I saw something like that over on Metatalk yesterday.

Also good at this sort of thing (snarky tv episode recapping, moreso than the BIG STUPID ASS HEAD shoutouts) is television without pity.

You know, all the good Survivor stuff from Sucks generally ends up on TWoP--as well as stuff from other Survivor focussed sites. I enjoy the forums at TWoP becuase they're well-moderated (although I've heard complaints that some of them are over-moderated) and you don't get a lot of topic drift. It's nice.

Apparently the people at Sucks have a matrix they use to make predictions, based on a lot of factors, but one of the biggest ones is that if someone is mentioned in the preview for the next episode, then they won't be voted off in that episode. So far, it's held.

Man, did Survivor ever suck. They were just a pale imitation of Journey, who also sucked.

Say what you want about reality television, but the latest Survivor has been fantastic. The level of gameplay has really been taken to another level.

Rob is hysterical and a very interesting player. He wrote his senior thesis on "The Impact of Reality Television." Christy is deaf, and at this point, looks like she has a real shot at winning. Jenna & Heidi have taken their clothes off for peanut butter. Matthew is psychotic, but quite possibly a mastermind.

Love it.

While the "go fucking yourselves" thread is undeniably funny, picking on somebody because english isn't his/her first tongue and/or has some sort of learning disability is not exactly, how shall we say, very evolved, no?

If it's funny, then why worry about how evolved it is? I mean, evolved is great and all, but Derek and Clive are still funny.
Also, the FYAD forum at Somethingawful.com is way funnier. Or at least contains a far more refined form of intellectual devolution.
