Oh, puhleeeze. Lighten up. It was a joke. People laughed. It’s over now. We don’t have to get our panties in a wad because we all fell for it for a few days. Please unclench and remove broomstick. Some of the outrage expressed recently over Loverock reminds me of the old saying, “The pun is the lowest form of humor, unless you think of it first.”
Personally, I’d like to send a big thank you out to the Rockster. He provided me with some great straight lines. How many great skewerings did we give the Rock? Would we have had that opportunity without him?
The “waste of bandwidth” argument doesn’t hold a lot of water for me either. There are tens of thousands of posts on this board. Loverock made (this is a guess) less than 30. OOOOOOO, what a waste of space we so desparately need for that “Cutest Male Actors” thread! Isn’t this board for entertainment (among other) purposes? Most of the responses to Loverock were downright hilarious. It’s the Loverocks, Dragonflies, Thorleifur’s and C#3’s of the world that keep this board from being moribund and downright boring.
Methinks the ones angry about Loverock doth protest too much. Is it a cover up of their deep involvement with the Rock, or simple jealousy that they weren’t included. Or perhaps it’s as simple as a lack of a sense of humor.
Don’t get me wrong. I don’t think LR is funny anymore. But he surely was at first.
