What is the funniest thread (to you) on the SDMB?

A big question I know. So many threads. But I’m sure a significant few stand out in our minds as those we can always come back to when we need a good chuckle. For me, it would be this one, particularly Larry Mudd’s account of a…um, latrine picnic, if you will.

What thread do you find the funniest on SDMB?


The Horror Of Blimps thread had me in tears of laughter; there have been many others, but that one is the first that springs to mind.

Link? If you can, folks, please provide a link to your nominated thread. Thanks.


This old, old thread (don’t bump it!) about funny things said during lovemaking had me laughing out loud throughout.

Is that a leg?

Scylla’s goat porn had me rolling in the aisles.

I cannot think of this line and NOT laugh.


The Horror Of Blimps

The poop-related thread Another bathroom etiquette memo: Do you have a prehensile rectum? by Billy Rubin. Be sure to check out the reworking of the OP half-way down the page, in the style of Dr. Seuss, by Borborygmi. Heh. Poop.
(For reference, earlier threads: Funniest thread of all time…, What is the funniest post you’ve ever seen on SDMB?, Funniest posts ever, The funniest post you have ever seen on the SDMB)

My favorite is the one about the mythology, this one:

Can someone show me how to make the word “one” highlight as the link? Pretty please? Or should I go to ATMB?

Let’s see if replacing “phoenix” with “one” works…



I think she wants to be able to do this.

Elenia, all you do is type this to make a link, replacing the curly brackets {} with square ones :

{url=http://www.straightdope.com}The Straight Dope{/url}

will produce (when you use square brackets)

The Straight Dope

WallyM7’s “Why Me?” thread is the funniest thread to ever grace these boards. Hands down.

I can’t find the thread on a search (and it’s really annoying me) but there was a Pit thread from some time in the last year about “Kentucky Fried Taco Huts” and how combining the restaraunts has decreased the quality of each respective chain’s foods that had me laughing out loud repeatedly.

Maybe someone else will remember it and have better results than me.

This one [http://boards.straightdope.com/sdmb/showthread.php?s=&threadid=143463&highlight=verily]here{/url} was hilarious to me. It was called "And Yea, the Child of Filth Did Arise ".

– Hilarious, yet subtle, references to “1920’s style ‘Death Rays’”.
– More cowb…err, Dog burning!!!
– Something else, but I forget what it was.

Homer’s Monkey Butler: http://boards.straightdope.com/sdmb/showthread.php?t=37864

I really think this is my favorite thread of all time, as far as humor goes. The long stories, TMI threads, all that can be funny…but the first two posts in Homer’s thread are just sublime.

Damn it. Beaten. :smack:

This is, and always is, the first thread that comes to mind when someone asks this. I use “is that a leg?” in normal conversation all the time, like it’s a Simpsons quote.
