Comments that crack me up

Okay, we all get those ridiculous spam comments, or strange search terms that somehow lead people to our blogs. Lately it seems that people attempt to flatter their way through a comment to try to convince you to visit their site (which I never do – never know what you will find – *shudder*), etc.

From time to time I go through my spam comments to make sure one of my friends didn’t accidently fall into the spambox. As long as the comments aren’t indecent this can provide some great entertainment – especially considering what post they are commenting on. See, the comments rarely have anything to do with the post itself, but assume that all people are writing about their political viewpoints and such. It becomes quite hilarious, for example, when the following comment is located on my post about sniffing books (in which Betsy and I go out and smell books):

“I was reading something else about this on another blog. Interesting. Your linear perspective on it is diametrically opposed to what I read before. I am still contemplating over the diverse points of view, but I’m inclined to a great extent toward yours. And no matter, that’s what is so super about modern-day democracy and the marketplace of ideas on-line.”

HaHaHaHaHa! I have a linear perspective on the proper way to sniff books which is diametrically opposed to some other method of smelling books? It seems the author of this comment is ready to go out and have a good sniff. lol!

So, how about this next one, also on my Sniffing Books post – this reader has been researching how to sniff a book correctly:

“The information presented is top notch. I’ve been doing some research on the topic and this post answered several questions.”

I glad that I at least was able to answer their questions on this dilemma of book sniffing. And someone else said I was an expert on the topic!

“Just want to say your article is striking. The clarity in your post is simply striking and i can take for granted you are an expert on this subject.”

Someone else found my blog post: Ruminations on Eating Olives in an Upscale Restaurant informative – I suppose now they can avoid the pitfalls of restaurant olive eating (*snort*). Or maybe he just wanted to know how to knock off an obnoxious waiter with an olive.

“Hello! I have been reading some of your posts and am happy to see that your articles are actually informtive.”

He then goes on a rant of 228 words of how his comment isn’t spam and how he wouldn’t want to bombard my website with links and blah blah blah blah as he tries to convince me to go check out his link. lol!

And another commenter complimented me on my About Me page (which is a list of 100 things about me) about how well I know my topic – ummmmm… well I should hope I know THAT topic well! apparently this commenter gets irked when people don’t talk about themselves plainly enough:

“Definitely agree with what you stated. Your explanation was certainly the easiest to understand. I tell you, I usually get irked when folks discuss issues that they plainly do not know about. You managed to hit the nail right on the head and explained out everything without complication. Maybe, people can take a signal.”


Okay, maybe I am just warped and the only person these comments made laugh insanely is me. Of course, they’re only funny when related to the post their supposed to be commenting on.

I am going to go continue snorting with laughter now…

    So funny! I got a lot of the same comments. I never put them in perspective of what they were commenting on though. I’ll have to start paying attention!

  2. Karen

    Yeah, those comments are really funny when you put them in the context of your posts like that. I’d get a kick out of it too if the same thing happened to me. 🙂

  3. Perpetual Chocoholic

    lol. I get a giggle out of these sometimes as well!

  4. Lua

    🙂 I read the comments three times and I’m still laughing!

  5. This post was very informational. I definitely agree with your opinion. There just aren’t enough posts that show this much aptitude on this topic…

    😉 those are just too funny!!!

  6. Hi!
    I came across your blog today. I hope that Jacob is doing well. I have a 2 year old daughter, Cassidy, who was born with Tetralogy of Fallot w/ PA & MAPCA’s.
    I think blogs are a great way to get the word about about CHD’s and I commend you for what you’re doing.
    My wife and I are also on a mission to spread the word about CHD’s. We just started a jewelry company called Lucky 10. All of our products are handmade and pertain to Heart Defects and the Heart Community in general.
    Please check out our site when you get a moment. If you could help us get the word out about our new business we would be very grateful. It’s a project that’s very dear to our hearts.
    Thanks so much and we look forward to reading more on your blog!
    Vito Lisa

    P.S. If you want to keep up with Cassidy’s journey here is her Carepage info:

    • I am thrilled to meet you and I love your jewlery! I was fortunate enough to win one of your necklaces in the giveway during CHD awareness week on the 3boys1hubby what’s next blog – it is beautiful and I love it! I will definitely pass the word along and put your link in my heart links. 😀 I would also be thrilled to following Cassidy’s journey – but for some reason, the link didn’t come through.

      Thanks for coming by my blog!

  7. I just died laughing reading this post!! I find your blog to be quite informative, linear and….hilarious.
