back to article Sh*t the bed, it's Comment of the Week

It's Friday, and across the internet is heard the thin cry from a thousand (OK, maybe a couple of hundred) hapless souls forced against their will to read Comment of the Week. O cruel fate! If only they were given choice as to what to click on. Well, too late now, bozos. It'll look like you've read it in the stats even if you …

@Major N re. 1

That would be an interplanetary laxative actually. It is against Federation laws to use intergalactic laxatives within two light years of a planetary system.

Problemette

I would make a case for someone's particular comment, except that it appears that by allowing us plebs to reply to other comments, it is no longer possible (presumably to save screen space/repetition) to copy text from a comment? Admittedly, the crap ancient desktop build in this workplace means I'm still on IE6, but still....

I am a boffin for the agency

And I drive the oscilloscope

Lookin' in the lab for another infeasible artificial intelligence related breakthrough

With my skills in advanced robotics

I could work for Cyberdyne

But the Wichita Lineboffin

Still evaluates the spline

I know I've tried extensive weather control

And it don't look like rain

But if I can focus this microwave weaponry

You won't ever stand the pain

And I need a shark with a frickin laser beam attached to its head more than want it

And I want it to be capable of hovering in mid-air for extended periods whilst still maintaining its stealth capabilities

But the Wichita Lineboffin

Still evaluates the spline

WTF?

Huh?

Unless I've missed something, how is CoTFW Comment of The Week? Surely COTW or CoTW. AC in case I'm being very very silly.

Tyrun - (Back) into the Valley

We were amused by this late contender:

"I also remember crying at my computer to myself after hours of typing a certain program and nothing happening.

At least I don't do that at work [when] my code fails, I leave the room first."

Remember Compute Magazine?

My first box was a Commodore 64. There was this magazine called Compute - they had a Commodore version that came with programming listings in not only BASIC but machine code - you could type in pages upon pages of hex codes on the gawdawful C64 keyboard. Only to have it often fail. The tears would be a combo of the failure of said application to run as well as pain lingering in my once-functional fingers.

Danm, though, I miss those days... (except for "EasyScript", which was anything but)

There's something so very wrong

about having a comments section regarding an article that is a comment on the comments sections of other articles...

That 'F' doesn't appear to correspond to anything in the phrase "Comment of The Week". I think I see what you did there.

@Daniel

I don't think the "You're cute, do you come here often?" line is going to work on The Moderatrix.

Try more grovelling, pleading and begging; scatter with profuse apologies, the words "Maam" and "Mistress", and you might just get away with some red marks across your behind.

Hmm, I don't really think this item is working out

although I'll happily dish out the bonus points for "shit the bed", not least because it will piss off that American dude with the ultra-virtuous daughters who, one presumes, are properly toilet-trained. Unlike their father.

It seems to me ...

It seems to me that the comment of the week has been demoted to comment of the fortnight ... Or maybe I managed to miss last week's epistle (or clean forgot about it). Somehow I can't be arsed to go back and look.

Uh- - vanity or what?

Mine own CoTW were the one about "aspirantly, aspiring aspirants" or something like that

Yawn

If "Comment of the week" is "you have to work the first week in hand" - a joke that certainly long predates this organ, and possibly the entire history of the written word - then I have to wonder about the quality of the other comments last week.

Perhaps The Register might consider appointing a more mature person to the role of moderator for this column - someone over 18 years of age would be good - if, in fact, you have any staff that match that qualification.

Addendum

@Hardcastle and any future pedants: You and I both know that cows don't have balls. Nevertheless, that's what comes up on Google Image Search for 'cowballs'. So either

1) They're American

or

2) The photographer doesn't like Jill very much.

You have to take it a you find it on the internet. Heifer loaf is better than none.

I wouldn't worry about them; with the implementation pushing you to a different screen with no clearly marked way back (especially if you logged in on the screen immediately before), nobody much is going to use them.

@Balls!

it is not the wining that counts, it is the taking part.

I would like to take this opportunity to say, this particular week has seem some marvellous entries, some stonking corkers, and there was certainly stiff competition all round.

So, Winkypop (if that is your real name), seek solace in that as the world spins another 7 times, so will your opportunity to claim the crown and scepter for, Comment of the Frigging Week.

5, and a good start!

"Irony is your forte"

That is only 6 ... Instead, try "Irony is your forte, eh?"

"We l'haiku so much"

Contrived, 'orribly, 'orribly contrived. But this member of the Peanut Gallery approves :-)

forte is two syllables, but I couldn't find the acute accent.

As long as Ms Bee doesn't demand sonnets or alexandrines, I think I can cope.

"Forte" is pronounced "fort". Take a fencing class.
