Is this site looking to take leadership of the dull web from the apparently-no-longer-updated Dullest Blog in the World?

Plain text with no pictures? That will never work.

Run DMC represent, yo!

I've always loved the airport carousel section.

The club went searching for me and made me a charter member.

Mr. Cousins, seeing some apple juice on the tray, put two and two together. He poured the juice in the specimen glass.

I cracked a wry smile.

Greensboro (PTI) : counter-clockwise
Nashville International (BNA) : counter-clockwise

I would give that site an emphatic huzzah, but it would be more appropriate to simply shrug and perhaps emit a low short hum.

Whenever I think of boring people I think of a man I would see at many of the parties I worked as a cater-waiter. I think if he applied himself he could have been the Most Boring Man On The Planet. At 75 the best time of his life had been past by 50+ years. It was sad.

But this story is not sad because on this certain night he met the Most Boring Woman On The Planet (1st runner-up). They found themselves a quiet corner near the kitchen and regaled each other with inanities.

This is the moment that has stuck with me: Our hero pulls the pipe from his mouth to say, "This will probably bore you...." and his soul mate looks directly at him and leans in with this look on her face of "Bring it, I want this so much."

Maybe it is a developed taste.

I got all excited when I saw the banner for National Fig Month. I clicked it over and over again and nothing happened, however. :(

I feel like there's finally a site on the internet that speaks to me.

dobbs, the other members and I spoke, we'll be needing your membership card back. Excitement has no place at the Dull Men's Club.

moss, it speaks to you in a monotone, doesn't it?

I laughed at the "neutron walks into the bar" joke. I guess I'm dull.

And I wasted my 100th comment on complaining that I'm dull. I'm very dull now.

Pleasantly amusing site, yes... assuming they're tongue-in-cheek.





Otherwise...

What a bunch of pretentious f*cks.

I'll take couture / high art / rockstar posing any day over being 'real' -- at least it's pretention without the hypocrisy.

(Oh hey... something hit a nerve here...)

Hahaha my ex sent me this about 5 years ago suggesting that her previous boyfriend might be a member - I've occaisonally wondered if she sent a similar email to any subsequent men in her lives ...

Whenever I think of boring people...

excuse me, sorry, but we're not talking about boring men. these are dull men. there is a difference, according to the FAQ:
Are dull men the same as boring men?

No

Dull men accept their dullness. Boring men are dull men who actually believe that they are interesting.

Dull men tend to be introverts. A boring man is an extroverted dull man.

The character Norm Peterson from the television show 'Cheers' is a dull man. The character Cliff Clavin is a boring man.
a dull man looks at his own shoes when telling you a joke at a party. a boring man looks at your shoes when telling a joke at a party.

We know.

this sentence neatly encapsulates the appeal of this group. Being 'with it,' and 'trendy' is work. Fun shouldn't be work.

Wow. The cartoons are very, very dull.
Excellent.

I drove my beige car to work today. After I got to my taupe and brown cubicle with my beige computer and beige telephone, I drank half a cup of decaffeinated coffee and got to work renaming hundreds of variables by hand...

I followed the link and checked out the site. Then came back here and left a comment too late to be noticed.
