Interference Thread Survivor Match 14: POWERJUICE vs. is bono ok??

Last match, Interference preferred Muldfeld's insanity to Moggio's, to the tune of 8-3.

Next up:

IO: I'm going Powerjuice

vs.

I hope Bono is ok small plane crashed in Manhattan


Please note: due to several requests made over the past couple of polls, the time for this poll will be extended to 48 hours, which is amusingly timed, since these are probably the two shortest threads in the competition.

If you DON'T understand Powerjuice, here is the original post:

The Temple Bar - Stop Avoiding the Inevitable...UYMFA!

If you still don't find it funny, fuck you.

Thanks, ElMel, for not including a disclaimer that the second link is to a thread in the PLEBA archive.

I feel like I need to shower now or something.

Im going POWERJUICE on this one. As legendary as "I hope Bono is OK" is, as a thread it kinda sucks...

POWERJUICE on the other hand, is, well, POWERJUICE.

Fuck powerjuice.

Is Bono OK is a fuckin' legend. Sure the thread isn't much, but the consequences were major for the forums.

My issue with the "Is Bono OK" joke has always been in the fact that that was NOT the first time someone did that.

I can't find the exact posts to prove this right now, but a few years back, in a September 11th memorial thread, Sicy posted the link to the thread people were posting in when the attack actually happened. Inside THAT thread there were a lot of people asking if Bono was OK. At least, that's what I Recall.

I know I'm not crazy, because THIS thread in Pleba exists: Bono is SAFE-was NOT at WTC

So, I don't know, it makes me kind of when I think about that joke, not that I don't make it myself.


on the otherhand, Powerjuice is Powerjuice is Powerjuice (Also, the thread is still open )

Even with the explanation post, I still don't get powerjuice.

You're right. It was in Zooconfessionals and the post was by JCoster. But I cannot find it anymore.

I'm surprised Is Bono OK???? is winning; that thread is pretty weak.

So that's how powerjuice started. I never got it. Definitely funny. Easy vote.

What do you reckon his colleague meant by using that word though? That's what I don't understand. Why not just say "hard"?

Yeah, but the meme's a classic - and even if the thread's short, it's an amazing example of the misplaced priorities of some Interferencers.

Powerjuice is funny, but never quite made me laugh out loud. "Is Bono ok?" has given us a meme for practically all occasions.

Is Bono ok with this poll?

I don't think even NSW knew what the guy who originally said "Powerjuice" even meant. But that was sort of the point. It's not a fucking thing.

I'm conflicted on this one. Powerjuice's threads are a lot better, but the "Is Bono OK?" meme may be the best example of how ridiculous this place is. That thread Ashley posted is just fucking creepy, how they're all so pumped that Bono is alive, and then to hedge with a weak, "Still, a lot of people are dead, but at least NOT BONO!"

Were there even reports that Bono was in New York on 9/11?

What the fuck is wrong with those people?

Looks like we might smash the voting record with this one. We've already passed up the last match's entire total in 4 hours, with 44 to go.
