Candy's Daily Dandy Comment Content Comedy Hall of Fame

I am pretty new to the wonders of having my own blog. I started The Daily Dandy on the last day of August 2008, as a place for my unemployed butt to go and write everyday so I could hone my writing skills. 2.7 months later and ridiculously, almost everything I see or hear becomes potential fodder for my blog. Most mornings I am rushing the kids and My Guy on their way out of the house just so I can get to my beloved bloggersphere. Here the world is truly my oyster.

At first I wrote simply and for myself. I was experimenting with this new entity for my ideas. I told no one and (as all writers do) I fell in love with my words in written form up on the screen. I got no comments and I didn't care. I was happy just writing. Then it happened. I got my first comment from a blogger, Miss Liddy. She gave me those few words of encouragement and a question or two and I was inspired to work harder, knowing someone was listening. (Thanks Lids, you will always be my BFF and where ever you blog, I will follow.)

I have learned and laughed so much by reading all your blogs, especially you Zibsy;) the blog master extraordinaire. Some day's it takes me longer to read all your blogs and comment on your amazing content, than it does to post my own blog. But it's THAT important. Thank God I don't have a job!!

By now we can all relate to how the comment is like the crack that keeps us junkies going, so I decided to try out the Comment Content Comedy Hall of Fame. I say, "try" because I'm not quite sure if I get enough traffic on my blog for this to work.* I may need some help with this with shout outs from Poobomber or Zibbs sites(If you guys are interested. Hell, I spend way too much time on their blogs as it is) but give a sister a chance and implore all your favorite bloggers to come over here and nominate a comment for consideration.

The Comment Content Comedy Hall of Fame works like this:

1. Post a comment in the comment section of this blog post with only the name of your blogger Hall of Fame nominee and the link to your site where his/her comment is posted. You may nominate more than one blogger for consideration, but their comments had better be knee slapping hilarious!

2. I will retrieve the comments (maybe you will too) and, depending on the response I get, whittle down the nominees and post the top ten on Monday. The post will be up all weekend, the deadline is 12am Sunday, Nov 9th. That should give you plenty of time to come up with the good ones and get the word out.

3. If all goes smoothly, on Monday, after I post the top 10 for consideration, I will post a ballot on the Daily Dandy's sidebar and we will ALL choose the winners.

I will go first and give you an example from my short list of legendary comments:

I wrote a post entitled: See Buddy. The url for that post is:

Slyde from Slydesblog said:

Slyde said...
the dog is just being framed by the white man...

HAHAHA! Pure gold! Great job Slyde! I swear your comment had me giggling all day.

So there you have it! The FIRST nomination for the Candy's Daily Dandy Comment Content Comedy Hall of Fame! Good luck Slyde baby!

Who knows, maybe I'll even make up one of those award-thingy's that people can post on the side bar of their blog. Wouldn't you want to be the #1 Comment Content Comedy Hall of Famer, proudly displaying it for the entire bloggersphere to see? (Peebs, can you show me how to do that?)

*once again, the magnificent Prof. Zibbz has provided me with the answer to this question. thanks Zibsy-love Eliza.

*oh yeah, I try to keep my blog as family-friendly as possible. I don't mind racy content, but overly obscene content may be edited and profanity written with ***'s.


Dr Zibbs said...

Great idea Candy. I gave Falwless the rights to publish my blog comments as a miniature coffee table book but she dropped the ball. And thanks for saying that you like my blog.

Tova Darling said...

Oo, great idea! Now I have to comb through the comments I've received to find the best one.

I'll be back...

Dr Zibbs said...

Candy, I just wrote a post with a link to your contest. Great idea!

Dr Zibbs said...

My first nominee is for Some Guy on this post (which happens to be mine but it's funny):

Slyde said...

wow, i'm touched! thanks!

for future reference, i can write smarmy, wise-ass remarks on ANYONE'S blog, for a price...

i work cheap!

Sass said...

This pressure is killing me!!!

I'm going to go peruse.

And I like my word verification for this comment. "inksfib"

Gwen said...

I know just the one! I still think about it and laugh. Sadly, the author hasn't started a blog yet. I'll be back later (after I'm off my work computer and can scan my archives more freely) to post my nomination.

Great idea, Candy!

Some Guy said...

Thanks for stopping by my blog, Candy! I will be sure to add you to my Google Reader list. Zibbs is too kind. Usually I'm ashamed at how lame my comments can be. See. This one is no exception.

B.E. Earl said...

I would like to un-nominate Slyde.

He gets all his best material from me anyway. ;)

Fancy Schmancy said...

I'll be back, sometime this crazy weekend.

Jennifer and Sandi said...

This is a Great Idea!! This will take me awhile. Get Right Back At Ya!!

- Jennifer

LYDIA said...

Aww Candy! I am in Tillamook, Oregon and finally have cellular service again. I am so glad I read your blog. You are such a sweetheart, you are my BFF! I think I am buying necklaces for real. Thanks so much for being my beauty expert. I wish I was home so I could compose a post to bring some traffic to your blog. It wouldn't be much, but its the thought that counts. If you are still doing this contest Monday when I get home, I will write one
For sure! Have a great weekend!

Kirsten said...

Good idea for a contest! I'll see what I can come up with!

Falwless said...

This is a great idea! Okay, I have a nomination.

On this post on Gwen's blog showing pictures of kittens and babies and a very inspiring unicorn Mike left the comment:

I don't even think that's a real unicorn.

For whatever reason this is still making me laugh, to this day.

MelO said...

I would like to nominate the iNDefatigable mjenks for his comment on "the You Tube video I posted the other day"

Don't get me wrong... I LOVED this video and these kids' passion, but they WERE pretty over the top!!! I literally laughed out loud at his comment:

Wow. I was afraid we were gonna go all Sharks and Jets there for a second.

Dr Zibbs said...

I'd like to also nominate Words, Words, Words and Whiskey Marie on their comments on this post (both had me laughing out loud:

Gwen said...

I'm surprised I haven't seen McGone's name pop up, YET. That guy is a top-notch commenter. I still haven't had time to look, but I will. I may have several nominations. I may even nominate myself for one I left this week on Suzel's Sass.

This is fun!

Gwen said...

Okay, I'm in this one but it's unique in that it's a three-parter: To this Suzel's Sass post about telling secrets I said:

Whiskeymarie is a man.
Oh shit, that's not MY secret to tell. Oops!

Whiskeymarie replied:

I had something funny to say, but I was laughing so hard at what Gwen said that I forgot what it was. Oh yeah- Gwen has a "thing" for midgets, and she has webbed feet.

And I replied:

Whiskeymarie speaks the truth; I'm a very good swimmer.

Gwen said...

Last one about me, I swear, it's just easier to troll around in my own archives: To this post giving readers 5 poll choices of what I was doing that day, my blogless friend Scope replied:

I'm waiting to see one of these headlines from the Post Dispatch...

Joe "Six Pack" Biden Caught Trolling for Walleye

Completely Hairless Woman Terrifies Small Children With Lack Of Eyelashes

Metropolitan St. Louis Sewer District Tells Soulard Woman – We've Taken About Enough Of Your Shit

Local Office Worker "Works From Home" on Fridays. Rest of Office Sees 15% Productivity Increase.

Angie Devastated As Brad Elopes With Her ARCH Nemesis

That was sheer genius - funny AND he researched the names of places and businesses in St. Louis. And got it all right.

Gwen said...

And he remembered how much I love Brad Pitt.

Candy's daily Dandy said...

These are all great! There are no rules as to how many bloggers you nominate and who the blogger is-so if you want to nominate yourself a bunch of times-have at it by all means!

I do have a question, Gwen, do you really have no eyelashes and webb feet? HAHAHA! Really good ones.

Keep em comin! Everyone!

Falwless said...

Okay, I found a Zibbs gem to nominate.

On this post by Whiskeymarie where she posts a most hilarious photo of "Bob" and "Mavis" Zibbs wrote:

Dr Zibbs said...
Mavis: Bob! We're on the Internet!
Bob: Did we win something?
Mavis: I don't looks like...we're getting made fun of.
Bob: Get my gun.

I'm still laughing at this one. A Zibbs classic, for sure.

Falwless said...

I can't stop myself. Someone help me.

On this classic Zibbs post he makes fun of that retarded kid Chris Burke who apparently once had a job as an elevator operator. He imagines an elevator scenario where Chris is fascinated with the elevator buttons. Really one of the top 5 funniest posts ever. Beckeye left the following comedic gem in the comments section:

You know that elevator that you're on has an H for "Hell," don't you?

Falwless said...

I have yet ANOTHER one! (Is this what being on crack is like? I CAN'T STOP!)

I once wrote a post on what I knew about the Large Hadron Collider machine that was being cranked up over there on the Franco-Swiss border. You know, sciencey crap. Anyway, Zibbs' comment is a gem, see for yourself:

Falwless, you've got a good blog, but when it comes to Science, you don't know shit. Let me field this question. You see, when you got a proton and you want to split it..wait..there's an atom split but it's very small so when...uh..I gotta go.

Vodka Mom said...

I'm still confused by what to do (I teach kindergarten, we only count to ten and shit like that...) but if my brain wakes up after a bazillion cups of coffee, I'll be back to play. Hell, if Zibbs can do it, anyone can. right?

Dr Zibbs said...

Candy, I think Falwless is on to the right idea where she tells you what the blog post was about then she put the actual comment in your comments. Of course maybe that was the way we were supposed to do it all see..I can't read.

Mr said...

crap, I have so much many good ones... I just re-discovered my blog and have been going thru all the entries... let me see if I can find one...

ok, here's one:
the comment by angelcjr

but that one might be too inside-joky
the comment by Nugget

But that post might be too obcene
Big Ben's comment

I think that one will be ok. I think.

Anyway, this is my first time on your blog. it;s pretty good :) except for the word verification thing..

Gwen said...

This time I'm nominating Falwless for this comment on this post from The Lady Who Doesn't Lunch about how/why she hates birds:

I cannot stop laughing. F***. This is way funnier than anything I have ever posted on my blog ever. In the history of ever. I may just have to rename my blog after seeing this post. Or add the addendum (except for Gifts from a Broad). Sh**.

I'm gonna go read it again and laugh like I've never read it before. It's always better the second time around because then you know when the good parts are coming up.

Fal has the ability to make you feel like THE FUNNIEST PERSON EVER when a post really tickles her funny bone and she deserves a nomination for it.

Candy's daily Dandy said...

Gwen-that last one was way too good!

mike said...

Very cool to be nominated. And thanks, Candy, for stopping by my blog. Please stop by again. By the way, Jon and I grew up in Natick, which I bet you know where that is :)

'kay, your blog is freaking me out. It's telling me where I am. It's wrong, but not by enough.

Commentor: Anonymous
Background: The post was about a love note I found on my garage door from a guy named Brian.
Comment: Gwen and Brian: The first meeting.

Gwen: It's so nice to finally meet you!
Brian: (Scribble, scribble, scribble)
Gwen: You say "You have watched me from afar and have been too shy to come forward." How cute!
Gwen: So what do you do Brian?
Brian: (Scribble, scribble,scribble)
Gwen: You say you used to sell cat brushes door to door. That's when you met your last girlfriend?
Brian: (Scribble, scribble, scribble)
Gwen: You say she was a great gal but used to curse at you all the time even while apologizing.
Brian: (Scribble, scribble, scribble)
Gwen: She finally left you for her Facebook account.
Brian: (Scribble, scribble, scribble)
Gwen: You left in tears and that's the last thing you remember until you woke up in the bottom of some pit where a so called "Doctor" was forcing you to "Rub lotion on itself before giong to some sort of dance fight?"
Brian: (Scribble, scribble, scribble)
Gwen: Since your escape, you have decided to spend the rest of your life documenting America's alleyways.
Brian: Scribble, scribble, scribble)
Gwen: Why Yes! I do Tango Brian.

BeckEye said...

It's an honor to be nominated!

I'd love to nominate someone else, but I'm lucky I can remember my own comments, let alone others' comments. Come to think of it, do I still even write a blog?

Where am I?

Falwless said...

That was very sweet of Gwen, but I hereby denominate that comment because it wasn't particularly amusing. But yes, in fact, I do have a gift of making people feel like they are hilarious. I'm awesome like that.

Whiskeymarie said...

I was going to nominate the one from Gwen on Suzels Sass where she outed me too. It totally caught me off guard and I was laughing my ass off when I read that one. I couldn't help but give away one of her secrets, could I?

Oddly enough, Zibb's comment to my "Bob and Mavis" post that Falwless listed was my other choice.

So really, I got nothin' unless you count me saying "here, here!" to other people's nominations.

And I love that I got nominated for a comment about abandoned babies left in the trash. I am awesome.

Gwen said...

Candy: This link should get you to the McGone comment. Sorry!

Fancy Schmancy said...

I nominate Kate:

Last year, when my daughter was in first grade, I went to pick her up from school. Another (very proper) mother and I were discussing a play date and pick up times. I MEANT to ask "What time to you eat dinner?" Instead I asked "What time do you start drinking?"

Yes, I'm afraid I did.

Fancy Schmancy said...

And, of course, Zibbs:

That lady is a jerk! But how funny would it have been if when you asked the kids where his mom was he was really a midge like on the Warner Brothers cartoons, "Listen seee, I'm a full grown man. Whadya talkin' about lady?"

Dr Zibbs said...

Here's another on a post of mine about a kid having to where a carrot costume to promote a restaurant. The is McGone's comment that had me almost falling off of a chair when I read it:

"It would really be a cherry on top if the owner said "OK, now that you have the costume on, let's practice the dance moves."


Dr Zibbs said...

I meant to write "wear" not "where"

The Imaginary Reviewer said...

Great idea! Thanks be to Gwen for the nomination!

I am nominating Beckeye. On this review of some imaginary horoscopes, she left the following comment:

"I went to high school with this girl who was a crazy born again Christian, and she told me that horoscopes were the "gateway" to devil worship. Well sir, talk about being able to predict the future! One night, after she told me that for the umpteenth time, I ripped her tongue out, cut her throat and offered up her blood to the Dark One. She's my zombie slave now and, gosh, we still laugh about the irony of that whole thing."

Gwen said...

Commenters: Falwless Jones, Suze, McGone, The Lady Who Doesn't Lunch and Whiskeymarie
Blog: Mine
Background: I left a note asking them not to camp on my porch while I was out of town over the weekend.


Fal: *moves tent to back porch*

McGone: Send me a text when you are turning on the street and I'll move back to the shed.

Lady: I'm very sorry. I pooped in your bushes while I was waiting.

Suze: Camping on your front porch - ha? I broke into your house, drank your alcohol, slept in your bed and ate the last of your Rice Krispies. do live in New Jersey right? gulp...right?

Whiskeymarie: I was camping on what I THOUGHT was your porch ... Your neighbors have no sense of humor whatsoever. You'd think they would have been HAPPY to come home to a passed out drunk chick in her underwear. Hmmm...maybe it was the vomit in the mailbox that they were mad about. Who can really say?

My word verification is eerily apt: antic.

Gwen said...

My FRONT porch. Why can't I get these right the first time? Too much code.

McGone said...

Gwen is my absolute best friend I have never actually met in person but whose blog I love reading and she once hosted the toy pig that I send all over the globe which is a really long story if you've never been to my blog but when all is said and done I would love to buy her a drink some day EVER.

And I don't say that about everyone.

Gwen said...

Hey, everybody! It's me, Notgwen. I hijacked Gwen's blogger ID because Candy doesn't take anonymous comments. I just wanted to say that I agree, she is super fantastic. If I were buying her a drink, I'd get her a whiskey. One time she said that's her favorite. I think it was in a meme.

pistols at dawn said...

I feel like most of my commenters are fairly regularly funnier than me, so this is difficult. Fortunately, it looks like other people have already done all the hard work for me here.

Great article as for me. I'd like to read a bit more concerning that matter.
