AcmeShorts

During a recent outing my party passed by a man dressed in a peculiar outfit. I wryly remarked on it...

...resulting in much laughter among my companions!!

08/10/2004 Will Disney (5): so blissfully SHORT, this one.
08/10/2004 TheBuyer: author, I'm going to assume you weren't expecting this to come up until tomorrow and thought you had a full day to fill the space between the first and last lines.
08/10/2004 Litcube (5): I'm a huge fan of shorts. And of Scoop.
08/10/2004 Mr. Pony: Litcube, are you suggesting that scoop wrote this?
08/10/2004 qualcomm (3):
08/10/2004 Ewan Snow (2): This joke is very, very old.
08/10/2004 TheBuyer: I feel like I'm taking re-re's, what short are you guys voting on?
08/10/2004 scoop (1): Not to mention, fat, ugly and its tits sag too. And Litcube, I find you playful puppy like gnawing at my ankles infectiously adorable. Don't stop kiddo, it really warms my heart.
08/10/2004 TheBuyer (1):
08/10/2004 Litcube: I'm not suggesting that at all, Pony. I knew, seconds after I click "Submit", that it'd be taken that way, though. Scoop acknowledged me!
08/10/2004 Mr. Pony (3): The joke is old. The joke being made with the joke is pretty old, too. Gets right to it, though!
08/10/2004 Dylan Danko (2): what's the joke exactly?
08/10/2004 scoop: Why don't you look in the mirror, Danko? Boo-Ya! Uh-oh! Step back. I'm on fire!
08/10/2004 Dylan Danko: Ouch. But please tell me the joke? By the way, watched Elephant last night. What a boring piece of shit.
08/10/2004 qualcomm: yeah, but the sound of the assault rifle was the best i ever heard.
08/10/2004 anonymous: I thought this was funny, but after listening to the well articulated testimony of so many knowledgable experts I see that the zero, one or two jokes here are not funny.
08/10/2004 TheBuyer: I'm still confused - is the joke just that there is no joke? I highlighted the blank bit thinking that I was an idiot for missing the hidden punchline. [Sorry if I'm poking an open sore right now]
08/10/2004 anonymous: You're correct on both counts, the Buyer: a) the joke is there's no joke, but it's delivered in the form of a joke, and b) your suspicion that you may be an idiot.
08/11/2004 TheBuyer: Advantage - Jon Matza
08/11/2004 Dylan Danko: Matza, is that the same joke that everyone else is talking about?
08/11/2004 Jon Matza: Danko: not sure, wondered the same.
08/11/2004 Ewan Snow: Yes, Matza, that's the joke. "Certain fellows did certain things... and let's just say we had a good laugh about it." (Absurd lack of specificity mixed with a tone of superiority, etc.) Don't get me wrong, I love that joke, but we've been making it for years and this short is only that joke. Doesn't carry a short in my opinion. Not in this day and/or age. Also, I think this would have been better if it were a single sentence without the italics or dots...
08/11/2004 Jon Matza: In retrospect I agree with your assertion that it would have been funnier with more sensors.
08/11/2004 Ewan Snow: It's spelt censors. asshole.
08/11/2004 Jon Matza: Apparently Snow has taken leave of his sensors! Eh heu heu heu heu!!! Goodness!!!
