NEW RULES


I spoke with both DEW and Frosty and we agreed to institute two new rules.

  • ​No text posts. 4chan greentexts and, in some cases, tumblr quote chains, are exempt.
  • No "not funny but true" posts. There were a ton of both of these cluttering up the previous thread and drowning out quality content.

That said, the old stuff still applies.

 

  • Keep content PG-13 and tag everything with suggestive content or coarse language.
  • Three pictures max per post. Everything needs to be spoilers.

Remember, AYAME is responsible for bringing the thread back. We owe her that much as respect.

@ZCOverload

 

I can totally understand that "not funny but true" posts kinda beat the point of this Funny Pics/GIFs thread, and max 3 pics per post and 4chan greentexts and tumblr quote chains being greenlit is all splendid.

 

That said, why should text posts get different treatment than 4chan greentexts and tumblr's things? Is it the presentation (technically no pics/gifs--though the texts themselves can be considered as pics)? Is it the relative unfunniness that goes with them (how to measure that)? Or anything else?

 

Not strongly against the new rules, just mildly curious about the lines drawn, see.


 

Nevermind, let's all respect the rules, shall we.

 

Unfunny (but relatively true) text posts can go here:

Also, I just realized the blatant hijack of this thread (I thought this is a new thread altogether and my old one got deleted/archived). Noice feat, I give ya that, Zish.

It's not really a "standard" per-se. However, surely a majority of people would consider this funnier than this. The fact is, the latter typically puts in the minimal amount of effort to be minimally funny and it's typically all the same "jokes" about idiots or how you can just fuck off and I don't care get me a wine. There. I just summed up 90% of the aforementioned text pictures in a single sentence.

 

The greentexts are always higher quality (otherwise nobody on 4chan would've bothered to screencap them) and, and I stress this, SOMETIMES tumblr's stuff is funny too. I'm not saying it always is, because usually it's not. But sometimes it gets a laugh out.

 

tl;dr I'm holding this to the standard of what I consider funny and what I've seen internet (IE various forum/board goers, aggregates, etc.) consider funny. Big blocks of words behind a flat colored background aren't funny. 4chan and tumblr are funny.

I'm not quite sure myself about the statistics of it, but I'm bloody damn certain this one at least earns a place among tenth of the general populace:

Shaggy-dog-story structure and (in)appropriate responses in form of comments win the day for greentexts despite it being text jokes with accompaniment pic that may or may not be related to it, and also helped by 4chan's culture and its atmosphere that foster such kind of joke. I agree that most backgroundless pseudo-motivational text jokes out there kinda miss the mark when it comes to comedic punch for contemporary crowd, but they need not be dismissed altogether, hence, my creating that new thread for those text posts.

Our mileage may vary on what's funny; but I dare say you're partly right on the bolded part: big blocks of words behind a flat colored background are mostly not that funny, unless the presentation/layout made and at least one picture give proper assistance to boost its funny factor.

Those work, because there's an image that goes along with it.  The Link image might even imply that he's a psycho environmentalist who will kill you.

^these rules were actually instated by Rhyssa a while ago and Ive just given up on reporting it.

 

edit: now that I say that I have the weird feeling I am mixing up Rhyssa and Ayame >.> and I can't find the exact post in the archive (too lazy to look at every single funny pic/gif thread in archive and find it)
