    I would like to offically announce that Home Star Runner should be banned from all walks of life, and it's creators should burn in the 9th ring of hell.

    Or shut down the site. Take your pick.

    Nothing against you, Raj.

    Maybe it's cultural, but I find Home Star Runner completely un-funny. Sorry. www.rathergood.com makes me laugh though.

    No, it's not cultural. Home Star Runner just isn't funny. Period. Anyone who tells you it is, is lying to seem cool.

    Rather Good, does however, make me laugh as well.

    I'm glad I'm not the only one who doesn't get it. Another vote for "not funny."

    I dunno. It just drives me up a wall that something like Home Star Runner is in Time Magazine for basically having the mental capacity of a three year old.

    People pretend to find it funny, because everyone else pretends it's funny. I think that people find it funny because they think they should, not because it is.

    I swear, if I hear one more person say "Burninate" I'm going to hunt them down with a rusty spork. Why rusty? So they have tetanus when they go down.

    So, all said, I really hold no animosity towards Home Star Runner.

    Yes, I can explain. It's some american lunkheads thinking they are funny, inflicting severly unfunny material on a fairly suspecting public. Who laugh, because it's there.

    They laugh, because they expect themselves too. It's like seeing a comedian. You laugh, because you're in the comedy club, and everyone else is laughing. So you laugh, even if it's not funny.

    That, in essence, is how Home Star Runner perpetrates it's insipid CRAP on the world at large.

    That help?

    Yea, it seems that's exactly how the majority of webaite humour works, but rathergood.com is an exception, especially the norse gods one!

    Brendan (AKA capt. crazy rusty spork Mod),

    Time Magazine~!?! That's great for Home Star! I had no idea, someone just emailed me the link the other day... I LOL'd.

    "Burninate", Sure man, promise I will not use that word, we have got a deal.(*rusty-spork-phobia sets in*)


    Ya Know CCRSM, I really don't find Home Star Runner funny anymore, I think that you have completely nailed it for me. I was lost in the confusion of faking the humour/comedic-relief & pretending that I deeply thought there was something funny about HSR... now I'm found.







    kill-joy :spit:

    You just quit smoking. You've got everything to look forward to, yet you tempt the man with the rusty spork.
