Want to get rid of fire ants? Get a can of black spray paint. Stir up the ant hill and when they come rushing out, spray them and their surroundings with the black spray paint. Once they realize that they live in a black neighborhood, they'll stop working and start killing each other.
@ archiethesailor, omg
@We Are Groot, I welcome you, ambassador of tumblr.
@ archiethesailor, IM SCREAMING
@We Are Groot, I understand. Tell me, can you or can you not "even"?
@We Are Groot, it apears he just went there
@luteneint mittens, I can't believe he just said that.
@ archiethesailor, #bestcomments #worstcomments
@ archiethesailor, And this is.. this is OK with everyone? He can just go ahead and.. Alright, ok, I see where we stand FP community. I see what it is.
@ archiethesailor, I like this photo fire your comment alone.
@MayITakeYourHatSir, I wish we could private message on here!
@ archiethesailor, unexpected racist jokes are the funniest
@ archiethesailor, AAAAHAHAAHAAA
@MayITakeYourHatSir, oh no! Somebody said a funny joke! Take your butthurt back to tumblr.
@ archiethesailor, #bestcommentinexistence
@Cpzombie, Ok, I'm a little more sensitive than the average joe, that I will freely admit. But this is straight up, blatantly racist. I don't care how funny you think it is, it's wrong.
@MayITakeYourHatSir, Question: who gives a fvck Answer: nobody.
@Cpzombie, I do! I give a fvck! As a person who isn't total trash, I give a fvck!
@MayITakeYourHatSir, it's a joke. If you want to be extremely thin skinned, go back to tumblr. Otherwise, feel free to stay here and enjoy the jokes.
@MayITakeYourHatSir, Haha if it was some comment directed towards white people about how we love child beauty pageants or can't dance then I'm guessing you wouldn't be acting as the great moral crusader that you are acting as right now. But heaven forbid he makes a joke about black people. The man was utilizing a stereotype to get laughs and it worked. We're not at KKK march right now; we're on an app for jokes. Therefore, his statement should be taken as such. Learn to laugh and for the moments you do get offended, learn to move on about your day without letting everyone else know how offended you are. And stay away from comedy shows, because you really seem like the type to stand up during the show and ruin everyone's good time by yelling things toward the comedian.
@Cat Lauer, the best comedians punch up :)
@Handless Juggler , I'd say the best comedians are the ones that get many laughs.
@Cat Lauer, Haha! Yes. In that case: the comedians who punch up tend to get more laughs than those who punch down.
Smart ass 😁
@MayITakeYourHatSir, There's a difference between making a joke about something and actually believing it. And calling people trash because they're not offended by the same things you are won't bring anyone to your side.
@Handless Juggler , Haha I guess you're right! I guess those great comedians like Chris Rock and his "black people vs. ni**as" joke and Dave Chappell and his "why terrorists won't take black people as hostages" joke or Daniel Tosh and just about anything that comes out of his mouth are all punching up! It must be nice living in your bubble pretending that comedians that utilize clean comedy and punch up (Jim gaffigan) and their opposites (Daniel tosh) can't both be great and that joking about taboo subjects is the worst thing imaginable.
I was going to reciprocate with the name calling but then I remembered: oh wait, I'm an adult.
@Cat Lauer, Chill Winston! I thought you were just making a smart ass joke with the "most laughs" remark! Were you not? Nobody's angry here :)
A lot of Dave Chappell's stuff *is* punching up, e.g. when it's an ironic parody of racists.
My favourite comedy is far from clean. I like Bill Hicks, George Carlin, and the later Frankie Boyle when he stopped doing so many paedophile/rape/disabled people jokes and more political stuff. My bubble is dirty and funny!
@Handless Juggler , Okay okay, I apologize. The way I read your comment it came off super sarcastic ha. Good to know everything's cool.
And yeah I imagine every comedian has plenty up material that punches up; I only cited one joke out of his many ones. But also those same comedians have plenty of material that punches down as well.
That's cool; good comics there. I don't know, those kinds of jokes just wouldn't turn me off to a comic. I just have a very open sense of humor as long as it's a joke. I think that's the point of comedy: to relieve us of the worries and pressures of life for a while by making us laugh, sometimes taking some of those things that cause us stress and making them as funny as possible. And that's where some people start to argue over what should and shouldn't be joked about. But comedy is subjective. So I'm glad that you've found comedians that you enjoy 👍🏻Everybody needs a laugh now and then.
@Cat Lauer, My favourite comic is V for Vendetta 😎
@Handless Juggler , Haha I should probably have stuck to "comedian" there 😝
@ archiethesailor, I seem to recall you getting offended and down voting jokes that targeted you, but I guess the issue there isn't the joke but the hypocrisy of groups. So until you can handle people making jokes about what you believe, stand for, and are and hold a legitimate discussion should your point be challenged, you haven't earned the right to make jokes at the expense of others. The purpose of the comments section and the voting system is to encourage discussion, not silence those that disagree with you or encourage blind hate speech while upvoting those the agree with you but provide nothing to conversation.
@The Megaton Bomb, All he did was make a joke.
@The Megaton Bomb, Did you not read my explanation? I said "there's a difference between making a joke about something and actually believing it." When I got offended, it was at a joke about something the person telling the joke actually believed. And of course, the person who got offended has a right to downvote me, and even should downvote me, because they didn't find what I said to be funny or something they could agree with. I did have an actual discussion, many of them, when my views were challenged. The purpose of voting is to show how many people find something funny/agreeable and how many people find that it's not.
@ archiethesailor, no, you do not have a right to downvote someone because they disagree with you, only if they are crowding out things that are or direct detracting from discussion. Your joke made no distinction between calling out actual actual racism and being a racist remark. It thus falls under hate speech and further detracts from intelligent discussion. You also have downvoted people for similar jokes but on topics that you find personal. It's hypocrisy to attack someone for downvoting or disagreeing and then do it someone else. Jokes have to have a purpose: "fvck you" can be a joke but only when it has a legitimate purpose, and blatant racism isn't a purpose.
@Cpzombie, I direct you to the last sentence. ^
@The Megaton Bomb, his joke has a purpose though. It's funny. Everybody is becoming SUCH A THIN-SKINNED PUSSY, that I am getting to the point where I hope we get nuked.
@The Megaton Bomb, what the f do you mean you don't have "the right to down vote" are you seriously that retarded about what a right is? Let me help you. You DO NOT have the right to not be offended.
@Cpzombie, a thin skinned pussy would be someone who attacks arguments with votes instead of words, as you continue to do because you have no words to supports your views. You detract from legitimate discourse and are worth no one's time.
@big freedom, rights are earned not given, although most of the ways they are earned is by not misusing them when they are granted to you without otherwise earning them. When you don't use something for it's intended purpose, you lose the right to something. It's why we have jails, sanctions, and law; so that people can have nice things and continue to have nice things when not nice people misuse nice things. Come back with an argument or not at all, commenting is a right too, and it has been take away from people before.
@The Megaton Bomb, nice word salad. What you've said, in no way makes any sense whatsoever. In fact, we are all now stupider for having heard it.
@The Megaton Bomb, maybe it's because I'm tired, but all that has happened from me reading your comment is me wishing I had a big red button even more
@big freedom, oh, good argument, I'm sorry your incapable of conscious thought, please go back under your rock now.
@Cpzombie, because you're stuck in your own world and refuse to leave. You have refused to look from anyone else's views (through every argument I have had with you, I might add) meanwhile I can step back and look from yours, the difference is there is nothing supporting what you see besides it's all you choose to see. You care naught if what you spew has a legitimate basis, or otherwise credibility, as long as it contains a yuk; this is why you are the bane of the species.
@The Megaton Bomb, you realize that, however you may try, you cannot seem intelligent while using the wrong form of "your", right?
@Cpzombie, please, a type forced by an autocorrect system is hardly an argument let alone anything but ad hominem. Address the point or don't waste your breath and other's time.
@The Megaton Bomb, please stop trying to sound intelligent. It's not working, and it's just irritating.
@Cpzombie, I'm sorry I'm confusing you. I'll make it simple, your wrong and you won't admit it.
@The Megaton Bomb, except that I'm not. I will accept that I am wrong (which I'm not) if I am given evidence that I am.
@Cpzombie, you have been given evidence, but instead of addressing it, you've thrown red herrings every which way.
@The Megaton Bomb, becuS sulu haven't shown any
@Cpzombie, um... What? Assuming you meant "because you", here is a direct quote from my self: "The purpose of the comments section and the voting system is to encourage discussion, not silence those that disagree with you or encourage blind hate speech..."
@The Megaton Bomb, I did mean that, just too apathetic to change it, because I assumed you would get that. How is a single downvote silencing a comment?
@Cpzombie, it doesn't alone, but once it's done, more people feel less discouraged to do something that "hurts" someone (no a downvote doesn't really hurt someone, but everyone also knows it carries a negative weight), it's called bandwagon mentality or, depending on how you argue it, confirmation bias. Aswell, when you upvote yourself, you create to others the illusion that what is said is right. Of course none of that is actually true: a vote does not equal validity, so why do it in an argument anyway? Instead of adopting a policy that creates circular friction in argumentation, one should adopt a policy that actually encourages discourse/argument: one that doesn't obligate you to upvote someone who disagrees with, but encourages upvoting when something is contributed to discussion and frowns on that which takes away from discussion and shuns voting based only on agreement/disagreement.
@The Megaton Bomb, so next we come to "what is contributing and attributing a discussion?" Without pointing out that fallacies never help and almost always hurt, we can only say that anything to silence another viewpoint will always be wrong, wether the viewpoint is wrong or not. This does not mean wrong viewpoints shouldn't be removed, but you shouldn't snobbishly attack someone. Instead you point out with logical reason why they are wrong or their view of the situation is incomplete. Calling someone a pussy isn't the right way to handle anything.
@The Megaton Bomb, boy, the view must be great on that high horse
Wow. Funny Pics *hates* feminists.
@Handless Juggler , you have a typo I think you meant to say woo*
@Handless Juggler , because they're stupid.
@Cpzombie, Point proven ;)
@Handless Juggler , most people hate feminists. Because feminists are hateful and angry people.
@talmet, i second this! I don't have any ill feelings toward women at all, and feminists don't seem to want to bring equality where its lacking, they seem to want to take any stab at men that they can. They are extremely angry and terrible people. Each one I've met is just bursting with a hate speech that can be triggered (yes i said triggered) from nothing at all, to just the fact that they want to. As always, hateful people of the world out there, please keep to yourself. We don't need your ugly hate.
@talmet, Like right wingers, left wingers, gun fanatics, vegans...
Maybe it's just that the loudest and most radical voices are heard, and nobody notices the boring sensible people.
@Dephenistrator, We have met very different feminists! I hang out with a lot of feminists and one of my friends is a feminism lecturer. They're all lovely! :)
@Dephenistrator, as in all groups, feminism has its extremists. Please don't hate the group as a whole because of the choices of a (very loud and angry) few.
@Handless Juggler , because people thing some idiots on tumblr represent every feminist and nobody really knows what the word means
@Handless Juggler , one trip to the Jezebel site ruins it for every moderate feminist in the world
@Lyris, but it's the vocal minority that usually decides policy. Just look at the defenition of rape as an example, or the use of the Duluth Model in domestic violence.
@Handless Juggler , the most extreme people are always the loudest. Anger is always loud.
@Lyris, there is no purpose for modern feminists, in the western world. Women are already equal in law, and in practice, they are treated much better than men (women and children first, child custody, what happens when a woman falsely accused somebody of rape with no evidence, and domestic abuse stuff are all some ways which women are treated as superior.)
@Handless Juggler , you should look into what recently happened at Yale.
There is an international men's health day, to bring awareness to young men about health issues (prostate cancer, heart disease, but mainly mental health issues. The number 1 cause of death for men under 45, is suicide).
The day is not instead of women's health, it doesn't detract from any support for women's issues, or anything like that. The health officials at Yale decided to have a gathering for that day, to bring awareness to male students. The feminists actually picketed, because having one day to help men not commit suicide, should not be allowed. So, Yale canceled the day on campus (fun fact, a male Yale student committed suicide the day after...)
@talmet, honestly, the way things are going (everyone politically correct, modern feminism, etc.) he might've made the right choice
@Lyris, some groups are also built on extremists. I believe in equality to everyone, i don't beleive these groups do. I've met alot of feminists, even some in my family. They are all man haters. I'm a man so I just see people hating on me for nothing.
@Cpzombie, thanks for saying it
@Cpzombie, i completely agree.
@Dephenistrator, isn't it obvious, they are only acting that way so the can crush more pus.
@The Megaton Bomb, i dunno why but i kinda like getting downvotes. It kinda feels like, that's it to an argument.
@Dephenistrator, I sometimes like downvotes, sometimes they are annoying. It means people are reading your post, but it also ruins your chance at top comment, if it's just a funny comment.
@Dephenistrator, I don't see your connection, I was just making a Southpark reference (to a way earlier comment).
@The Megaton Bomb, i clicked the wrong commenter
Lol, very true
@ Patalie Nortman, there is no difference anymore.
@ Patalie Nortman, There is. Feminists want equality between the sexes, while feminazis want to oppress men. Feminazis give feminists a bad name by referring to themselves as "feminists". ☆== the more you know
@ Patalie Nortman, and how exactly as the sexes not equal currently? I mean besides stuff like: women and children first, child custody, what happens when a woman falsely accused somebody of rape with no evidence, domestic abuse, etc.
Or, you know, a can of raid will do the same thing...
@TheOneWhoArrestedYou, joke 😧
@Cpzombie, well fvck, that didn't work.
