The eldridge knot has the highest VORP of any fashion/clothing related thing since boxer briefs.

Discuss.

Been watching some Chappelle Show recently after a pretty long hiatus (has it come back on TV when it wasn't for a while?) so have OPINIONS and stuff.

Clayton Bigsby is certainly a deserving winner. Could not disagree more strongly with Wayne Brady beating Prince then the original Rick James sketch to make it to the finals across Bigsby.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog and Pronunciation Guide

Maybe I'm misremembering but I would not have had Clayton Bigsby as a top 10 sketch.

I liked the Wayne Brady sketch but not gunna lie, woulda taken Tyrone Biggums Fear Factor over that round 2. That was one of my faves, hugely underrated.

Prince sketch was obviously elite. That would have been a deserving winner.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog and Pronunciation Guide

Well the argument for Bigsby up there definitely relies on legacy and representativeness and social commentary and similar intangibles. Agree that Rick James and Prince are (comfortably) better comedy sketches.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog and Pronunciation Guide

One thing is clear: between Anchorman and the 2nd season of Chappelle's Show, 2004 was a great year for people who like to quote things.

After a few minutes, Chappelle returned and continued by saying "The show is ruining my life." He stated that he disliked working "20 hours a day" and that the popularity of the show was making it difficult for him to continue his stand-up career which was "the most important thing" to him.

He also told the audience: "You know why my show is good? Because the network officials say you're not smart enough to get what I'm doing, and every day I fight for you. I tell them how smart you are. Turns out, I was wrong. You people are stupid."
Went out with a bang, too.

I'll battle any sex or any race. You beating me is like Billy Crystal playing Scarface. I can't see it, blind to the eyes. Came up in your face. OOPS POW SURPRISE, ohhhhh.

what, howtf does that happen?

iirc it took anarchist like 6 months to reach 40k signing up for every ww game and normally being the top poster and posting in other places as well. seems impossible to accrue that many posts that shortly even with werewolf, let alone without it.
