Hooray for mean-spiritedness.

Great pictures. Annoying captions. Sometimes you just have to let the snark write itself.

Some of those pics are cringe-a-licious.
posted by everichon at 10:10 AM on June 19, 2008


Well, yes. Anyway, in the spirit of things, here's what I consider one of my finest party photos. That's me on the right and the not-very-blushing bride is my friend Lina. Taken out of context it looks like we're fighting, but honestly, we're just screaming along to the music.

It's, yeah. Some good sensibility in the choice of photos; it's a nice mix, and fun to go through. The writing feels like a bad Jezebel audition or something.

But the main thing is that holy shit that's awesome. If you're going to do something as stupid as beerbongery, do it right.

If nothing else, this blog is further proof that there are millions of Americans (possibly Canadians also) who should never ever be photographed except for government IDs.

"Pink razr phone"? I see the "iPhone" demographic all over that picture.

The fact that I haven't been on that site yet is bewildering to me.

I mean, look at me. LOOK AT ME!

Well, he's actually, you know, holding a pink flip-phone. I can't tell you if it's a razr or not, but, yeah.

Is it racist to enjoy this one? Maybe I just like the phrase "date-rape bomb."

The cat photo is great.

The snark about this photo is basically "ha ha, the guys are more interested in the beer and each other than the underwear girl."

But if you look at the flikr photoset it comes out of, it's pretty clear that indeed, the attention is not on the underwear girl. "Ha ha you're so GAY" isn't quite as funny when, in fact, you are so gay.

I'm rocking an "inconclusive" on that one. Daughter passed out in presence of not-passed-out young man in a party context is something I that I think qualifies as a race-neutral paternal vision of terror, but I guess the hypothetical fathers in this case could be racists.

Whether racist or not, it's certainly sexist.

Is there a version without the douchey comments? It's like watching "America's Funniest Home Videos," except if the videos were still photos, and the fart/slide whistle noises plus unfunny voiceover were replaced with some anonymous asshole insulting strangers in really crude and moronic ways.

Yeah. the pics are funny, but the comments leave me with the distinct impression that this guys does this because he's the type of guy nobody would want around at a party.

Depending on the inner diameter of the hose, how much they filled the funnel (if they didn't even fill the hose that's just incredibly lame), and whether or not they let the beer go flat, I calculated that that beer bong could range from impossible for mere humans to a mere impressive veneer.

But yeah, beer bongs are pretty lame in general.

Man, if there were one word I'd love to banish from his vocabulary, it's "sluts." It's like listening to the stereotypical basement-dwelling blogger slag on all the girls who won't talk to him because of his BO and neckbeard.

Can we keep "sluthammer?" I don't know what it means but I don't think I could live without it.

Vice Magazine did this already, and better.

We can keep "sluthammer" if it turns out it's like a Norweigian word that doesn't mean anything like what you would guess.

I dunno, man, I went to this new smallish-chain-bar-and-grill around the corner from me last night after we played volleyball--this is a Wednesday night, in what's ostensibly a family restaurant--and there were a vast number of young ladies there who could really only be described as "sluts." Well, "skanks," maybe.

Never have so many aging men been made happy by the air conditioning being set just a bit too chilly.

The point is, that's a word we might need.

Well, I suppose I'm in the minority. I've been reading this blog for a few weeks now and I think the commentary is totally hilarious.

FWIW, if you go back through the posts it appears that the author is female (and definitely on the young/immature side).

Where can I get pants that describe EXACTLY the situation I'm in at the given moment? It's like they're made of some futuristic substance that works like hyper-color, but can change to describe exactly what you are doing: drinking beer and looking nuts.

Except instead of BEER NUTS mine would say YOGURT BORED.


Glorious.

In dire situations I can open a non-twistoff with my teeth, but that's not as sexy.
posted by TheOnlyCoolTim at 8:26 PM on June 19, 2008


In norwegian 'slut' means something like 'end' or '(something is) over'. It's what they put at the end of movies and books. So a sluthammer would be the hammer of finality.

Having been the drunken teenager at many a party, I can't find it within me to hate on other drunk teenagers. A lot of the commentary feels mean-spirited (some of it's funny though) but I have to admire a flickrsurfer who can dive in there and come out with a picture as glorious as the man with a zebra between his legs in front of the psychedelic quilt. That's a quality find right there.

I meant to link to this blogpost as an example of one that made me laugh. Also, if not for this blog I'd never have found this glorious picture of Morrissey. Some of the pictures lead to interesting flickr streams.
