Stop Using The Same Fucking GIFs Over And Over

FunbagTime for your weekly book of a Deadspin Funbag. Got something on your mind? [Email a Funbag](mailto:funbag.deadspin@gmail.com).   

Today, we’re articulate about Drew Brees, H2O bottles, cake donuts, and more.

Before we get into a Funbag, we would usually like to warning we to a fact that the Kindle book of The Hike is on sale over during Amazon for dual measly bucks right now. Fucking Bezos lowballing a talent once again. He’s got some nerve. Anyway, buy it and I’ll try to finish off a subsequent book for we as shortly as we can.

Your letters:

Jeff:

I’ve had it with unfunny people meditative they are crafty by replying to any singular Tweet with some foolish GIF. Do we unequivocally need to see a “white male blinking” GIF one some-more time?

Advertisement

We do not, nonetheless that’s a star we and we live in. There is an effectively gigantic array of greeting GIFs to select from, nonetheless all those choices indeed enforce a normal chairman to close down and usually post a same awful GIFs that any other asshole uses. After all, you’re replying to some definitely disposable tweet. You need to respond quickly, so we can’t means to go too low down a GIFhole. And if we put too many suspicion into it, a impulse to respond will have passed, and people will already be regulating a blinking male to respond to some NEW square of terrible news. we would tell we to eschew replying to any of these tweets whatsoever, nonetheless I’m usually as needy and attention-starved as a lot of you. we know that kind of recommendation isn’t practical. we GOTTA BE FIRST.

GIFs like a blinking male and Jonah Hill going NAH are internet comfort food during this point. They are Twitter meatloaf, for when you’re too sleepy and impressed to get into fancier forms of Twittering. This greeting to a restraint of choice is unequivocally common, and relates to all forms of complicated culture. Yes, we could deposit my time in some new status TV series. Ah, nonetheless what if we usually watched an old-ass part of a Simpsons instead? Did we know there are immature people out there who watch Friends, somehow? Friends SUCKED, and nonetheless people will still watch it on Netflix since it’s not fatiguing in a approach other shows and cinematic universes can be. There’s no need to deposit when we watch Friends.

This is also since Hollywood remakes a same shit over and over. It’s not since a studios are lazy, or not usually since of that. It’s since a audiences are lazy, too. Experiencing something totally new takes additional courtesy and bid and my god, aren’t we so TIRED these days? Every fucking day is an assault, so it’s no consternation that people like me cite to tell by examination a seventh Joker start story reboot. “In this one, The Joker is a discontented funny-car mechanic!” They’re gonna start rebooting GIFs soon. There are gigantic images in a star nonetheless a Internet will fast settle for a rebooted GIF of a Meryl Streep clapping GIF, starring Kevin Hart.

The abyss and extent of cocktail enlightenment has spin so intimidating that we tend to pass on ALL of it and shelter to shit we already like. This is also famous as “getting old,” nonetheless we cite to support my unavoidable mutation into an aged fart as a broader sociological trend brought on by a terrifying range of complicated technology. The latter is CLEARLY a reason we listen to “Body Talk” by Ratt when I’m befuddled off my balls.

Slavo:

Drew Brees is GOAT, not Tom Brady. Tell me since we am wrong.

Well, since of a rings. I’m not above deploying that take when it suits a argument. When we win 8 AFC titles and 5 Super Bowls, we have a right to pad your résumé accordingly. That’s too vast a representation distance to dismiss. we fucking hatred a Patriots and wish they get sucked adult in a hurricane and carried divided to fucking Oz, nonetheless even we will straightforwardly acknowledge that Tom Brady didn’t fitness his approach into those titles.

But here’s a critical thing: It doesn’t MATTER if Drew Brees is a GOAT or not. It doesn’t matter during all. People get all worked adult over foolish bar GOAT arguments, nonetheless we skip out on an awful lot of good shit when you’re wasting time debating LeBron vs. MJ for a millionth time. Drew Brees is Drew Brees, and that’s enough.

I’m not even gonna mangle it down into some micro-GOAT evidence so that Brees gets to be a all-time best during some unequivocally specific quarterbacking ability (his authority of a two-minute cavalcade springs to mind), since that does a harm to what an awesome, COMPLETE actor he has been. The male can spin any differently routine football diversion into a 50-49 shootout, and he can shelve adult 5,000 yards flitting in a deteriorate with your fucking auntie personification wideout if he had to. Drew Brees is FUN. Even when he plays poorly, he creates certain to dedicate during slightest dual extravagantly interesting turnovers in a effort. That’s how many he cares about YOU, a spectator during home. We don’t need to climax everybody to conclude them properly. Anyone who hates examination Drew Brees play hates football, and that goes for any dipshit Atlanta fan still perplexing to make their adversary with New Orleans a thing.

Peter:

Drew Brees pennyless a all-time flitting yardage record tonight, and a articulate heads were all on about what a good dude he is, couldn’t have happened to a nicer guy, etc. And by all accounts Brees IS a flattering good guy. But what if some dickhole and/or square of shit like Jameis Winston or Big Ben pennyless a record? Would he still get all a fanfare? Would a pundits be all GREAT GUY FAMILY MAN LOVES HIS COMMUNITY?

You saw Big Ben applaud dual Super Bowls, yes? And we watched Jameis win a inhabitant pretension dual months after passionate attack allegations opposite him surfaced. AND we saw Ray Lewis’s whole career. You know how a cavalcade goes by now. You could go on a nine-state murdering spree, and a NFL would still have a comfortable and neat account watchful for we once we come behind to a margin and do some wins. Disgraces are small distractions. Jim Nantz wouldn’t DARE pronounce a word about a bloody route of destruction we left behind. It simply wouldn’t be a time or a place for such unpleasantries.

Anyway, we don’t REALLY know Drew Brees. You consider we know him since we see him on TV a lot, and since doesn’t plan any kind of external dickishness. But he’s also a lizard oil salesman and a shameless brandbot, so we have no thought if he’s truly a decent male or not, and conjunction do you. You could also do a nine-part documentary on his puzzling alienation from his late mother. “No one knows anybody. Not that well.” we like Drew Brees as a football actor and, like we pronounced before, that’s plenty. Unless we contend something meant about cops, we will always get your lifetime feat endowment from a NFL.

By a way, we wish a NFL had staged a full bureau jubilee out on a field, with a cake and a large label sealed by all a players and coaches and custodial staff and what not. They already gave Brees a laminated Good Passering certificate, so they might as good have left all a approach with a requisite discussion room festivities. Tack adult a singular CONGRATULATIONS ensign on one wall of a Superdome and thereafter leave half a cake uneaten for bureau vultures to swoop in after a party’s over.

Andy:

I usually satisfied that roughly any night we go to bed looking during a screen. I’m possibly dicking around on my phone, like we am right now, or examination TV in my father chair downstairs. Am we totally fucking my mind adult for good?

Yeah, probably. You can find roughly 4 billion studies that infer nap peculiarity is adversely influenced by observation screens right before bedtime. The reasons are obvious: a light is too splendid and a images hype adult your mind right when it needs to chill a fuck out to get prepared for beddy bye. That’s since we gotta spin off your phone before bed and review for a small bit. Reading is a greatest, healthiest nap assist ever devised by mankind, and zero will ever urge on it. My mother gave me some melatonin to nap once and it finished me feel like we was swirling down a toilet. Never again. No drug or addition can surrogate for a unequivocally long, pompous story book. we like to friendly adult in my TB12 sorcery jammies and impulse open a volume of Robert Caro, and thereafter we tumble defunct after 4 sentences.

Matt:

Is it usually me, or are Dean Blandino and Gene Steratore totally nonessential in a center of a Fox or CBS broadcast? we know since a joining needs manners analysts, nonetheless a promote doesn’t.

I indeed don’t mind them intruding on a broadcast. Remember: a some-more Mike Pereira gets to talk, a reduction Troy Aikman gets to talk. That’s a net distinction for everybody involved. we also subsequent good compensation from Mike Carey doing CBS games and removing literally any call wrong. It reliable all of my misfortune suspicions about NFL officials, and for that we am grateful.

Blandino is a cheesy dipshit and we haven’t listened adequate of Steratore to give an opinion, nonetheless I’m differently excellent with any network aping a Pereira sinecure and carrying some blind aged fart try (and fail) to explain a manners on a air. we don’t consider perplexing to send all that information to a tone male is unequivocally productive. You’d finish adult with Gary Danielson cheering out PURPLE MONKEY DISHWASHER during some SEC blowout.

HALFTIME!

Wade:

What’s your opinion in your domicile on half-empty H2O bottles? Do we dump a rest in a sink, or do we do what we do and take 3 half-filled ones and tip one of them off? When we horde a jubilee nonetheless and thereafter there are 35 half used bottles, that shit is going in a penetrate or watering my weed when they are outside. we have some arrange of OCD nonetheless when it comes to this, don’t wanting to rubbish it even nonetheless a box of H2O is like 3 bucks.

Advertisement

Yeah we usually save H2O bottle H2O if it’s a blood relative’s water. I’m not risking constrictive Stage-7 Norobola by sipping from some dirty seventh grader’s draining soldier. No appreciate you. That shit is going right down a drain.

Frankly, we shouldn’t even offer bottled H2O to people anyway. You know that large meridian news that came out that pronounced we usually have 22 years left to live? Well, a reason we’re all gonna die is since a Birthday Party Industrial Complex assured relatives that we contingency buy a 244-pack of Kirkland strong H2O for any birthday party. we can't start to count a array of times we have wrenched my behind removing a shrink-wrapped pallet of H2O out of a case of my car. I’m repelled a Saints didn’t pass around a garland of Dasani when Brees pennyless a record.

Please note that we am not suggesting that we move sports bottles to a birthday jubilee instead. You already know my position on sports bottles. Sports bottles are a goddamn scourge. My mother finished me container sports bottles for a outing to a goddamn grocery store a other day. we was livid. we am opposite ALL H2O bottles, disposable or otherwise. Paper cups and H2O fountains are all we need. Next time we have a birthday jubilee and some coddled child gets thirsty, I’m gonna have them splash from a hose.

Don:

Are people who work from home some-more or reduction prolific than people who work in an bureau setting?

Advertisement

Probably less, nonetheless really: who IS prolific anymore? No one does fucking anything. The new iOS refurbish measures your daily phone use and we will NEVER download it since we already know we rubbish 90 percent of my time on that thing, usually like everybody else. When we worked in an office, we fucked around. Now we work during home, and theory what? we fuck around. LAZINESS FINDS A WAY. I’m astounded Americans even get dressed in a morning anymore.

In all earnest though, people have their possess best practices when it comes to removing their work done. Some people flower in a home office. Other people (me) go fridge sport any 12 seconds and thereafter go lay on a toilet for 30 mins to corkscrew by Twitter. All that should matter to a trainer is that we get your shit done, and a shitty trainer is one who doesn’t trust we to do it. I’ve met people who stay during work for hours on finish and do positively nothing. Being benefaction is overrated, in my opinion. It’s roughly always usually for show. NFL coaching staffs are in nearby consistent foe to see who can eat a many fasten and who can punch out during a many irrational hour. And yet, Jason Garrett will still conduct to punt in rivalry domain in overtime. we don’t consider blazing a midnight oil over in Frisco is assisting that male much.

Christopher:

Okay hypothetical: World Series Game 7, bottom of a 9th in a tie game, bases loaded, and a pitcher cranks a hitter in a conduct with a fastball. Game over, World Champs! But it’s transparent a beat is badly hurt. Do players celebrate? we can’t confirm if a initial instinct is “Holy shit we won!” or “Oh shit he got beaned in a head!”

I consider it would substantially be a mix. Everyone would flow out of a dugout, for sure. And they’d substantially to that thing where they all burst into a raise and dry mound any other for a bit. But if it became transparent that J.D. Martinez (I’m gonna make a suppositious beat J.D. Martinez) suffered a fractured skull and is in serious risk of cranial bleeding, we consider a throng would grow inside and players would take a knee and Joe Buck would go “You hatred to see this” and thereafter everybody would wait until Martinez was wheeled out on a gurney before dutifully resuming a jubilee and busting out a large inverted hotel candelabrum World Series Trophy. And thereafter Boston fans would send genocide threats to a offending pitcher for ruining their moment. And thereafter 20 years after Bill Simmons would twitter “HATE THIS DAY. YOU KNOW WHY.”

Jake:

Is it excusable to use a same dress mixed times in a same Halloween season? we have a few parties to attend and we don’t wish to bombard out income for 2-3 costumes.

Advertisement

Fuck yeah, it’s acceptable. Are there people who cycle by MULTIPLE Halloween costumes in a singular season? That’s insane. Only Louise Linton can means such frivolities. I’ll gladly re-use a dress over a march of YEARS. Have we seen a prices during Spirit Halloween? I’m not shelling out $80 for a Sexy Harvey Weinstein dress usually to wear it ONCE. I’m gonna wear that shit out. I’m gonna wear it to a damn gym. we will get as many mileage out of my terrible ambience as we can.

David:

Why a ruin are cake donuts still a thing? They have a hardness of petrified dog doo-doo (probably), and we would go so distant as to contend that a plain unglazed boiled donut is improved than any dressed adult cake donut. Chef Magary, explain please.

I consider we are eating BAD cake donuts. One of a best things we ate all year was a comfortable green cream donut off a Krispy Kreme glazing rack, so we know a interest of a cake-like donut when it’s A) Hot and B) Fresh C) Glazed with goodness. If it’s some cold and undressed donut from a grocery store, forget it. It’s worthless. It’s an unfrosted cupcake, as distant as I’m concerned. You have to asperse that thing in coffee or tea to cure any season out of it. Plain cake is as invalid to me as cold pie, and we won’t apologize for that take. It is a duck breast of desserts. But when a cake donut is prohibited and uninformed and has maple frosting? Whole other thing.

Jason:

If we could accurately – articulate within a 5-8 yard radius from a given alighting mark – expostulate a golf round adult to 450 yards 90% of a time nonetheless are differently roughly a spook golfer with a occasional par, what are a chances we could contest on a PGA tour? Even nonetheless debate greens are one step private from concrete, we feel like a advantage of chipping for eagle many holes would even a personification field. Am we delusional?

Alas, we are. If we can’t putt, it doesn’t matter how distant we can pound a ball. Mike Austin reason a record for a longest expostulate in a contest (515 yards). Mike Austin also had $84 in career PGA earnings. In all of sports, putting is a thing that looks a easiest nonetheless is indeed a many difficult. It SHOULD be easy, that is since it’s so enraging when we blow it. All we gotta do is daub a fucking round with a stick. You don’t even have to worry about a throng messing with you.

And yet, it’s agony. Ever play mini golf? Your mind goes by a dozen opposite calculations during a backswing, all so we can get a round into a animation beaver’s asshole. And that’s though any income on a line! Putting should not be this mentally exhausting. we feel foolish painful over a putt, and nonetheless we can’t assistance myself.

So we can expostulate a round a mile and it won’t matter. They already reason longball competitions privately for golfers who can bang it nonetheless can’t putt or chip for jack shit. You’d fit right in with that gallery of boozers and fat boys.

Jason (a opposite one):

Has plantation sauce strictly surpassed ketchup as a array one seasoning in America for french fries?

What? No. Fuck that. Who is dipping their fries in ranch? Show me these people and I’ll have them lashed. Are people unequivocally doing this?

GAHHHHHHH THEY ARE. This is since God wants us dead!

Email of a week!

Dave:

My mother was giving a 4 and 2 year aged boys a bath tonight. we walked in with a Paw Patrol beach towel to start a drying process. The towel facilities any of a Paw Patrol dogs personification on a beach with a frisbee or something. When a 4 year aged sees a towel it immediately starts a conversation.

“Mommy is Skye! My Brother is Rubble! I’m Chase!”

Foolishly we took a attract and asked, “who is Daddy?” He now replies, “Daddy is a sand!” and laughed maniacally for 30 seconds true while we left a room, soundly defeated. we eat during slightest 2 or 3 of these browns everyday. we don’t unequivocally have a question, we usually felt like sharing.

Savagery. Just pristine savagery.
