?? Random music was around before Shuttlecock.

The non-kowtowing members of the Cock Force just regrouped there after the SC thread was moved to OOC.

And I don't understand your remark about it not staying positive.

Aaand Slow Loris takes the lead. This is a massive upset.

I'm not sure if I vastly overrated Shuttlecock or vastly underrated Slow Loris. These two threads probably should have met in the middle somewhere. I doubt either would beat Fake Edge or Atlanta, Germany.

Oh I stupidly said earlier that Shuttlecock was first. Obviously it couldn't have been, because it had to have been organized somewhere. I think they were separated by a matter of months.

As for PLEBA, I doubt anything from it was funnier than this pic parodying it:





Don't know why that's not showing up.

When U2 decides to release another album in 2014, Shuttlecock will need to be revived so that we can discuss it.

Also worth nothing about Shuttlecock: the hostility towards and resentment of the people who frequented it resulted in some CLASSIC material.

Was there really anything connected with The Slow Loris that tops this?


Bitch moan bitch moan



I don't think so.

As well as this:

Bitch moan bitch moan


I think it's safe to say that Shuttlecock (and THE CLICK! that dominated its proceedings) was partially responsible for the flame-out of one of Interference's best known members.

That's got to count for something.

Seriously?? "bottom feeders"?? Do you really think you're any better than anyone else here?

Your puns were fucking funny as hell. They gave many laughs, yet, at the same time, it got a little repetitive.

I don't think "better" is what I'm talking about.


But there sure are a lot of dumb/sheltered/narrow-minded people on the forum at large, with questionable taste and a cringe-worthy sense of humor. A stroll through almost any thread in EYKIW bears that out pretty quickly.

We don't make fun of that area arbitrarily.

I get that, and I recognize what you're saying. I mean, that's kind of the point of this poll series, right? Have a good-natured laugh at the stupidity of some of these threads/discussions? Hell, you probably even think I'm one of "those people". Probably in the cringe-worthy sense of humour department, at minimum.

Maybe this wasn't a great matchup..TSL was meant to be fun, got pretty much everyone involved and took a few twists and turns. Shuttlecock was meant to be a giant elitist fuck you to the bottom feeders, the dredges of Interference. Honestly that last sentence there sounds patently ridiculous. Ah well.

Considering the relatively small amount of people involved with Shuttlecok, I'm kind of surprised it's not losing by more.

Again, all I was saying from the beginning. In the annals of Interference history, not Lemonade Stand history, The Slow Loris was a bigger deal.
