Blog of Indescribable Awesomeness

I think this blog, not quite a comic but not quite all text, is extraordinarily funny with a nice occasional sharp edge. You may too. via metachat and metafilter's own ThePinkSuperhero

Oh my god. I am printing this out (the "blog" link) and bringing it to cheer up my friend Ingrid, who is currently laid up with a ruptured disc. She's also a nurse practitioner, so maybe she'll be able to use it at work!

"...there was a feral goose-raptor in my kitchen, you guys."

The Goose story, linked as "extraordinary" in the OP, is made of pure awesomeness. I made the mistake of reading it while at work and was having massive difficulty holding in my laughter. I don't often want to laugh so hard that I cry instead, but this was one of those times.

In case anybody's wondering, the goose in her kitchen was probably a domestic swan goose.

The goose video is hilarious at the end!

The fish story reminds me of when I was two or three, playing "scuba diver" with some kittens. I drowned the first one, and my Mother saw me getting a second one cause the first one wasn't playing any more. I clearly remember the poor thing mewing and gasping for breath, but I didn't understand what was going on.

The part I don't remember, was when she buried the kitten. She tells me that afterwards, I wanted it to get up and play.

I carried a lot of guilt about that for years. One day my Mother, dragging on a Camel cigarette, coolly remarked that she thought she should have let me kill them all. I felt better about myself after that, for some reason.

I hate personal blogs.

I hate MSPaint artwork.

Yet I logged in to Mefi just to favorite this.

Some soul-searching is in order, I guess.

On preview: soul searched, and the key is definitely her obsession with bears. It's something I can relate to. Magical Space Bear. I mean, fuck!

Very funny, but I can't read these without hearing Strong Bad's Teen Girl Squad voice in my head.

You kids. Always with the words meaning the opposite of what they're s'posed to.

Bad = Good
Phat = Thin
Umami = Mushroomy

Here's some "dope" words for you: Pull your damn pants up!

Holy fuck my stomach hurts and there are tears streaming down my face after reading this one.

I love this blog. The fish story was the first one that I read and I've been hooked ever since.

I made the mistake of reading the fish story on my iphone before the start of my calc class. Protip: If you strangle a laugh in a calculus class when no one has said anything funny, people look at you funny.

Great blog. I want this shirt.

A. This woman is my long-lost identical twin, except she can draw and I can't.
B. I can't help reading all the "spaghatta nadle" posts out loud. If there were other people around, they'd lock me up.

I want to hate things. I enjoy hating things.

This thing is very hard to hate. Why is it so hard to hate?

And with the goose story? That video is the very definition of L.O.L.

But can she out Dooce the Dooce?

I guess I suck for not enjoying this.

It seems like a really calculated pose, like the shot going around of that girl in the linux underwear and the nintendo baby-fit t and controllers covering her whatnots and etc. [1]

Meaning, I read it as a sort of mash up of theoatmeal and reddit memes, intended to get lots of attention; The site is well presented, no doubt.

I don't hate it, I don't think anyone or anything involved with it sucks- but it certainly seems like Yet Another Clever MS Paint Blog Recycling Unicorns, Narwals, Et al. Certainly doesn't seem like a FPP to me; But I don't think kxcd links would fit on the front page, either.

[1] Reference is gendered, as the author is prominently featured in their blog header image. After reading a couple and not chuckling- I wondered if this would have hit the fp if the author was an overweight 30-something making the same face. I then became lost in my own analysis whether I suck for thinking that, or just spent too many years doing gender studies stuff in college.

The panel of the fish story where she wakes up her dad caused me to literally laugh until I cried, and I don't think I've done that at anything on the web since Lilek's (sadly gone) Interior Desecrators.

What jokeefe said. And the next time I have to go to the hospital, I'm carrying the pain scale with me.

The milk one is good too.

It's a funny blog.

Also this one and this one both really remind me of the whole powerthirst thing.

Some very funny stuff there. The post about how she shaved her head when she was thirteen and the one about her jogging misadventure should be on her "best of" list.

Her blog reminds me of the stuff on Patrick Hughes's blog which eventually went into his book, Diary of Indignities.

I actually assumed at first a marketer was behind it, because in my experience it's actually somewhat rare for things to blow up and go viral like this without people knowing what they are doing. For example, the Oatmeal was done by a guy who'd been working for an SEO firm. But this blog's archives go back to last summer and I've only been noticing it getting huge in the last month so it seems like the internet has just naturally noticed something good for once.

I too have been attacked by a goose. This was very funny.

Does it make any difference that the author is ADHD, OCD, and has synesthesia?
posted by rebent at 2:54 PM on April 5, 2010




I like this alot.
The rest of the blog is good, too.

Interesting fact: It actually, physically hurts to spell something wrong on purpose when you've so often rolled your eyes at the misspelling.
