I laughed so hard that [INSERT LIQUID HERE]
After recently reading some humorous threads, I noticed a disturbing trend. If a post is sufficiently hilarious, it has the strange power to make liquids spurt out of readers with disturbing frequency. It is only a matter of time before somebody follows up with:
- “I laughed so hard that tears were spurting out of my ducts.”
- “That was so funny it made snot explode from my nose.”
- “After reading that, I actually pissed myself laughing.”
- “That post made me spurt coffee all over my monitor, my keyboard, and my children.”
At the very least, someone will throw in the obligatory “You owe me new keyboard.”
What’s the deal? Why the inability to control bodily fluids? I sometimes laugh aloud, but without liquids spraying from every orifice. Is there some kind of medical condition that causes people to expel so much liquid involuntarily? I would think the sheer cost of replacing coffee-stained computer equipment would cause people to swallow before they read anything potentially amusing. And why are people drinking so much when they read the boards? Do they just sit there with a mouth full of coffee waiting for sufficient justification to spray it everywhere? Come on, people. Exercise some control over your digestive and urinary tracts!
