A typical day on DU

This was insipired by a few hours spent reading the Meta forum. I hope it comes across as the gentle satire it is intended to be. All characters are fictional and any similarity to any actual du'er, living or dead, is coincidental.

A typical day on DU:

Brand New DU'er: I really like Tom & Jerry and The Bugs Bunny / Road Runner Show. Here are some of my favourite clips:



Du'er #1: Oh, so you think hurting animals is funny, do you? You make me sick.

Brand New Du'er: Wait, what? I love animals. I cried when Bambi's mother died!

Du'er #1: Sure you did. I bet you laugh yourself silly torturing animals all day, you bastard! Alerted.

Du'er #2: I object in the strongest possible terms over the use of the word bastard. My grandparents weren't married and they were wonderful, loving people, and so was my father. Even though he's been dead for over 50 years, I still miss him every day and I'm still in therapy over it.

Du'er #3: Oh, Du'er #2, we love you.

Du'er #2: Thank you, Du'er #3.

Brand New Du'er: But these cartoons are just jokes. I never hurt animals, I swear.

Du'er #1: Your jokes are lame, and so is Tom & Jerry. Go back to your animal-hurting friends at Stormfront!

Du'er #4: As a differently-challenged American, I must really object to the use of the L-word. I thought we had all agreed to stop using that word. Just tell him his jokes stink.

Du'er #5: There it is again: The hatred against those who smell normatively different. I'm outta here!

Du'er #6: All this bickering is getting old...

Old Du'er: Hey!

Du'er #6: I'm sorry, Old Du'er! I meant that this discussion is getting really lame...

Du'er #4: STOP USING THE L-WORD!!!!!

Brand New Du'er: But I love animals. Here's a picture of me hugging my cat. I call him Hitler because he has this cute little square dark patch under his nose, see?

Du'ers #7-14 (in unison): Booo!!! Tomsbstone! Tombstone! Tombstone! Down with the animal-torturing Nazi!

Admin: * User Brand New Du'er has been PPR'ed *

Du'ers #7-14 (in unison): Yaaaay!!!! Ding Dong, the witch is Dead!

Du'er #15: As a practising Wiccan....

This is the title of a post I made on Friday. I wasn't sure if there were some offended douchebags around, or if some regarded this as a "perjorative gender-oriented casting-part-of-the-population-not-in-the-best-light term."

Maybe a little more recognition and appreciation of humor could help. Something to lighten the discourse now and then. I remember some threads that were silly and hysterically funny, a reminder to not take ourselves so seriously all the time.

A DUzy button could be made to work like the Greatest Page...only in that case it would compile the threads with DUzy clicks into another page ranked from most clicks to least. That would be a lot of fun and it would be a way to have the DUzys back, in a way.

And DU is unique. Yes, we do get excited about things sometimes, but I don't know what I'd do without DU. The news I read here is often reported sooner than the major news outlets, since folks here are so plugged in. And when tragedy strikes, no place is more compassionate. After the 2004 election, which totally blindsided a lot of us, we had two special forums, one for those who were angry and needed to sound off, and the other for "help and sympathy," for those who were shocked and just miserable, including me.

And there's always The Lounge if you're looking for a laugh. I've been here since the lead up to the war in Iraq and DU is my home. I hope you find a home here, too...
