Hey, is it time for me to bitch and complain about test and generator posts? Why, yes, I believe it is!
Thread: From now on, don't call me Generic MetaFilter User #000, ok? Call me Smurfy La Smurf, my new Smurf Name!!! What's your Smurf Name?
Poster 1: Who gives a shit? (ok ok, mine is Humpy vonSmurf)
Poster 2: Mine is Strumpet La Smurfette. Teehee.
Poster 3: Whooo! Mine is Frums Smurf! I scored a palindromic smurf name! Worship me!
Poster 4: Heh. Mine is Goo-Goo DollBaby Smurf.
Poster 5: I hate smurfs.
Poster 6: Mine is Astro-Smurf. It rhymes with astro turf.
Poster 70: Mine is Smurfitty Smurf Smurf.
Poster 800: Mine is Snoop Smurfy Smurf.
Poster 999: Mine is Boom Boom Huck Jam Smurfboi.
Poster 3,201: Mine is Smurfin' Safari.
...and so on and on and on and on and on. Does anyone really believe that these things are for real, and that they're the only person who scored the WuTang name of Hard Baller? The posts are doubly bad because the resulting thread never seems to discuss the site itself, which is basically what we're after here, no? The thread always just consists of person after person posting the results of their James Bond Girl Glam Name Generator or their Unofficial and Not Endorsed By Mensa IQ Test or some other waste of MetaFilter bandwidth. Generators and tests are manna for people who want to participate in the site but don't want to be bothered by actually thinking. They're silly and fun, don't get me wrong; I've taken them dozens of times, but I wouldn't post that stuff to my own site, let alone MetaFilter. I respect you, MetaFilter. I love you, MetaFilter!

First of all, Papa Smurf didn't create Smurfette. Gargamel did. She was sent in as Gargamel's evil spy with the intention of destroying the Smurf village, but the overwhelming goodness of the Smurf way of life transformed her. And as for the whole gang-bang scenario, it just couldn't happen. Smurfs are asexual. They don't even have reproductive organs under those little white pants. That's what's so illogical, you know, about being a Smurf. What's the point of living if you don't have a dick? Donnie Darko
