Inside the Ropes

Rick, this is a friend talking, ok?

Put down the PBR and step away from the keyboard.

We're all here for you.





Oh do it, do it, you motherfuckers, do it do it you fuckers finally, finally, finally.

Like many on the east coast and midwest, I've spent the last 16 hours or so without power. I just got my power back and ran to my computer to make sure that the internet didn't leave me behind. What am I greeted with on my home page as I opened my browser? Inside the Ropes. I hate to be critical of anyone putting something out there, but that was completely worthless. Devoid of any redeeming value, entertainment, information, or otherwise. Maybe I just didn't get it, but I swore I was reading 411 for a minute there. Sorry, just one guy's opinion.

a joke piece that's that bad really has no value...I mean, from calling the nature boy Rick Flare...

The little intro on the main page suggested it was a joke, but if a joke's not funny is it still a joke?

How come Chucko got a column?

Who's asleep at the wheel here?


This has got to be a joke. Its like someone is channeling all the worst forumites this place has ever seen.

yes, BFG, it is. But we'd call it a "bad joke" or an "unfunny joke".

Canadian Bulldog, that was a really unfunny attempt at a humor column. I didn't laugh once. I groaned many times. The cute names are so not funny. Good try, though.

Since it looks like you got the Rick's attention, I can only hope your next shot at it will be better.

Aside from being painfully unfunny, it's unoriginal, as well. Go to theonion.com, and read Jackie Harvey's "The Outside Scoop", which does EXACTLY this gag (in a Hollywood context), and has been doing it for years.
Incidentally, "The Outside Scoop" is also painfully unfunny - a glaring sore thumb in an otherwise hilarious "newspaper".

This was like the SNL skit of wrestling columns. There was one joke and it was drawn out WAY longer than it needed to be. I read it thinking: "okay, I understand why this is 'funny' but it isn't, well... funny." Perhaps a little less "winking" at the audience next time. Or perhaps a LOT.

Watch your tongues, gentlemen.

I'm fairly confident our fearless leader penned that piece.

I would be careful as well, as "Canadian Bulldog" has apparently enjoyed the lavish earnings offered by Wrestleline...

While I found it quite annoying in many places, I also found myself chuckle at a couple of parts, so I'm going to give it one more read next week (if Rick hasn't ditched it by then).





That's racism man! I love to racism bro!

Liked the concept, didn't like the execution. Not really anything more to say than that.

(a) Oh my god... I can't believe I left my OWN tagline in at the bottom of "Inside the Ropes." What a tell. I should really have been more careful disguising my identity. I mean, even after I went through the trouble of carefully crafting my new character first on CRZ's board, and then here in the OO Forums, and all.... to have my secret unraveled by something like that. Oh, it's so FRUSTRATING.

(b) As a man who finds Jackie Hervey to be the second funniest of the Onion's regular op ed characters (behind Smoove B, of course), I got a kick out of "Inside the Ropes." You're entitled to a different opinion, I guess, but I'll vigorously disagree with you.

Unfortunately, I was being fuckin' sarcastic.

Abdullah -- way to be one of those cool people who edits a post after someone else comments on it. Very cool.


Way to take a stand and be judged.

At the risk of banishment or a funny ad hominem under my screenname, I'm now going to take on the Mods:


(gulp)

The original post "I fuckin' rule" is not funny in light of Rick's post, just lame.

The edited post "I fuckin' [suck]" -- where it is fairly obvious that the edited word must have been a positive trait (for it to have been replaced with 'suck' -- is funnier because I cop to the lameness.

Not only have I stood and been judged, I've serving time for the crime!

This seems appropriate in a thread discussing a joke column that wasn't funny.

The real reason I thought Rick penned it wasn't his tagline at the bottom but that I fugured no one could have found that column funny and posted it on the main page unless he was A) drunk and B) owned the site.

A + B = Rick!





Oh do it, do it, you motherfuckers, do it do it you fuckers finally, finally, finally.

Wait!!! Before the tagline, there is a link to "Browse the Raw Satire Archives." Is this a swerve? Is Rick now covering for the new overlord of OO, Matt Hocking?

I, for one, welcome our new leader. All Hail Mr. and Mrs. Keibler!

Oh, okay. Cool. With the way Rick's post read, and the edit in your post, it looked like you went off and covered your tracks. Not like I think you're the sort of person who does that... it's just that people seem to be doing that pretty often these days... going off and then erasing all traces of it. Many apologies.

See, now I'm confused, because while CB is certainly within my genre, he's not me. But I guess all humor is the same to Rick ?
