Yeah, I found out about that like 5 seconds after I posted. I was kind of hoping no-one would let slip, just because the site's so fucking good.

You know, I was having a really shitty day until I saw this site. Now I feel better, strangely.

What he's crying about:
Babe, pig in the city


I don't understand the Contagious Media link. It just means the site is part of a contest, right? It isn't viral marketing or anything. I never thought it was 'real' in the first place.

Are we really this desperate for entertainment?

Yes. Yes we are.

Not convinced by Anakin's turn to the Dark Side

Oh, man, I feel for you, brother. I'm tearing up over my yogurt raisins myself.

Strange, I had a completely different take on this. As the son of a mother with untreated depression and an eating disorder, I immediately associated this with some of the worst parts of my childhood.

Stupid enough to be funny.

I don't find it funny. I would call it authentic. Some of the ways in which we package things up into short labels really eliminate the humanity from experience.

I know from my own experiences feeling miserable, that you sum it up, and it seems ok, but then you think again about some particular exchange or some small piece of having lived the problem, and then you start crying again.

There actually is quite a lot of poor feelings, mostly unacknowledged. It's how to be stupid is to gloss over the detail.

There's really nothing funnier than someone crying while eating chocolate.

People eating and crying?!? That pisses me off! What a bunch of PABs. (punk ass bitches) If I ever met any of them, I would have to fight them. And I would win.

Homer: [eating, crying] Oh, man, that's good. [sob] Pass the butter.
Bart: Are you gonna eat that all by yourself?
Homer: Uh-huh. Pinchy would've wanted it this way. My dear, sweet Pinchy. [takes a bite] No more pain where you are now, boy. [rips him in half and sucks out the meat inside] Oh, God, that's tasty! I wish Pinchy were here to enjoy this. [takes more bites] Oh, Pinchy ...

Who cries over a garden salad? I thought that the whole point was gorging yourself to accelerate the downward spiral of guilt and shame.

What I'm eating: some weird asian dish made from fish heads, wrapped in pork skin and fried, then dropped into soup.

What I'm crying about: my screen name is based on a show that peaked like four or five years ago.

Wow, I hadn't seen the contagious media thing (thanks dhruva). BoingBoing and MF are both on my more than occasional web perusal and it usually sort of irks me when somebody FPPs something I've already seen on BB.

(No offense, Tlogmer - crying and eating at the same time _is_ weird.)

Is this related: Undies and Fixies?

Crying and eating? "WTF, mate?"

if anything, it makes me sad

What they're crying about:

Sudden realization that camera operator doesn't understand basics of light source in photography.

verb + verb = funny.....sometimes

crying + eating = funny

crying + dancing = possibly funny

eating + lovemaking = weird, maybe funny

eating + staring = not funny

crying + lovemaking = sad and pathetic

dancing + lovemaking = ...hmmmm.....that gives me an idea

Weird. But what I kept thinking about was that someone somewhere is probably masturbating to these clips.

Im glad to find im not the only person to not find this to o funny. This is just too weird for me.

eating and staring definitely equals funny.

Depends kenko. Eating a sandwich and staring at BBC News on your lunch hour at work.....not funny. Eating jello cubes with a spoon while watching a televangelist screaming the word Jesus repeatedly......possibly funny.
posted by Idiot Mittens at 2:07 PM on May 20, 2005

Not staring at things. Just ... staring.
posted by kenko at 2:15 PM on May 20, 2005

i love this. i've always found these to be such a funny combination.

it's so hard to eat when you're crying, like smiling and whistling.
posted by chococat at 2:28 PM on May 20, 2005

Ok, I'll give you that one.

Makes my guts hurt it's so funny.

My fiancee looked over from her FFXI - as she does every half hour or so - and was not amused.
"I'm never looking at your screen again."
"Good! I don't want you to!"
"You're just looking at freaky crap because you hang out at metafilter all day!"
"It's not freaky, it is very very funny. Look at these kitten pictures."
"Ahh...kittens. mew."

I am so not cool.

Poorly exposed digital phots + food + so-so premise = cool + funny?

I am so not cool.

nervousfritz and recursive: I think you guys need to find some middle ground and realise that it's STAGED!

I like the undies and fixies page sandking linked to better. But then, I'm a girl who likes bikes.
