Some Funny Super Bowl Stuff

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 7:35 am

When I’m bored I just cruise the Popehat Twitter feed. They apparently spend hours trolling the Internet for funny stuff, saving you the time of having to seek it out yourself. Ken & Co. don’t post this stuff on their blog, I guess because they believe a blog should be reserved for more weighty discussion of serious issues, combined with first-rate writing and clever original turns of phrase. Unlike Twitter, a blog is not — I can hear them saying this right now — it’s just not! a place for republishing images created by others. To use it for such a purpose just demeans the medium.

That’s apparently their view. I have no such compunctions.

We didn’t watch the game. Note to self: Disneyland is not less crowded during the Super Bowl. Doesn’t sound like we missed much.

  2. It seems the fumbles were not all on the field. Flea didn’t even bother to attach a cord to his bass, to support the illusion that he was playing even if it was not connected to the amps. http://imgur.com/INolP3S Which leads to the question — who was really playing backstage or doing some great synch-spinning?

    And, nope, didn’t watch a second of it, either. Monday morning tells me more than I care to know.

  3. There’s an intern at JCP who is looking for a new gig today.

  4. I would have thought Disneyland is less crowded in the rain, though.

  5. You know, I have become so used to misspelled and poorly-written tweets that it actually took me a moment to figure out why you included the one from JC Penney.

  7. Funny stuff. I like it when corporations talk to each other.

  8. The story behind JC Penney’s crazy tweets is almost as funny as the tweets. They were tweeting with mittens.

  9. At the link, some of the other corporate responses were clever.

  10. New York Post headline: Seahawks are Broncs bombers.

    Explanation: The New York Yankees, in the days when they were winning World Series after World Series, were nicknamed the “Bronx bombers”

  11. According to Rish Limbaugh, Bronocs quarterback Peyton Manning broke the Superbowl record for completed passes.

    This checks out:

  12. Seattle fans, act like you’ve been there before.

    Oh. That’s right.

    Go ahead and tip over trashcans then. Break windows, set fires, and block traffic.

  13. The Broncos shoulda waited until after the game to go to pot.

  14. Has everyone seen this amazing local tv super bowl ad?

  15. If you can’t trust the information on a website called “Huzlers,” what’s left?

  16. Maybe Colorado should have held off on legalizing pot until after the game.

  17. It should have legalized touchdowns. (Seen on the internet.)

  18. Doesn’t sound like we missed much.

    Are you kidding? Peyton Manning showed up once more for the overrated hack he is?

    PRICELESS!!

    Peyton Manning broke the Superbowl record for completed passes.

    Numbers don’t mean crap except the ones they call “the final score”.

    Fact is, Peyton has Happy Feet. Everyone has known this since the days when Spurrier put a licking on him from the sidelines. The Broncos had a plan, they’d not give Peyton a chance to get hit, by having him throw so fast no one could get at him… then the receivers would get enough yards after the catch that they’d get a lot of offense.

    Memo to Broncos: Doesn’t work against a good defense that has four men on your receiver by the time he turns around… and works even less when the D is also breathing down Peyton’s neck if he doesn’t get rid of it that fast, meaning his feet are starting to experience joy even without a sack.

    Result? Interception, Interception.

    “#1 offense my ass.”

    “It’s not embarrassing at all. I would never use that word,” Manning said after the game. “The word ‘embarrassing’ is an insulting word, to tell you the truth.”

    Clearly, Peyton is a liberal. He certainly seems to think redefining a word changes reality.

    “Peyton’s still the greatest quarterback to ever play the game,” defensive end Michael Bennett said. “This doesn’t destroy his legacy.”

    Yup:
    “Manning fell to 1-2 in Super Bowls and 11-12 overall in the playoffs.”
    Sub 50% in the games that COUNT against GOOD opposition. That’s a GREAT legacy!!

    Give him some more “legacy”, I say!!

    Happppyyyy Feeet, you’ve got the cutest little HAAAAPyyyy Feeeet!!!

  19. I see that some Seahawks players are saying they had a read on Manning’s hand signals, allowing them to know what the upcoming play was. This could be a problem.
