C'mon, hasn't the rampant overuse of "FAIL!!!" failed itself already?

    I concluded a long time ago that the rampant overuse of "FAIL!" has itself caused "FAIL!" to fail. Instead of jumping on a bandwagon that's way, WAY too overloaded, why can't people show a little creativity and come up with something original to say?


    Of course, the "FAIL!" fan boys will tell me this thread and I myself have "FAIL!"ed, but BFD. I'm not bothered in the least by such a knee jerk reaction from those lemmings!


    But seriously, enough is enough! There, someone finally had the cajones to come out and say it!!! Let the flames begin! :D

  3. i am not sure why this bothers you so, but I agree. It seems this started with people taking pictures of cats doing something stupid, which in and of itself is failure enough. Thus the new phrase I propose is "WHAMO" or "Episiotomy!"

    Think that should be 'nuff
  5. You fail (pun intended) to acknowledge people's desire to gloat over other people's misery, failure, being lame, sucking so bad etc.
    Makes them happy thinking they've never failed even once and so the circle of hypocrisy goes round and round.


    I find LOL to be much more annoying than FAIL.

    I agree. It's why I've changed the spelling. We're good now for a while

    The Fail is strong in this one.....
  8. Sorry, but I still like "FAIL". And LOLcats. The post above is great.
    EDIT: not the Vader one, the cat poop one.
  9. The cat's facial expression. Oh my.

    You must hear fail a lot. Perhaps you should try doing something right for a change. ;)

    I see Atoz. Am I the only one to see Atoz in that face?
  16. So OP says triple fail: the word "fail" failed at failing

    but you guys are saying it really is a:

    quad fail?

    The word "fail" failed to fail at failing?

    So that makes a positive = win
  17. Genius, my friend. Sheer TB genius. I'll never leave this place.
  18. No, no- fails do not cancel; they stack.

    I was tired of FAIL before I even really knew about it.

    This is true. It ain't grammar and it ain't a double negative neither.
