    Top 25 Haters List, Funny top 25 poll

    http://deadspin.com/5620076/the-2010-haters-guide-to-the-top-25?skyline=true&s=i

    If your willing to laugh at yourself I think the Iowa write up is one of the best. But I think the Boise State one is the best.

    This was posted before.

    Personally, I thought there weren't any more than perhaps one or two good lines in the whole thing. It tried too hard to be 'edgy' and profane, IMO.

    I thought Penn State was pretty funny.

    A bit of a good jeer on the law troubles, but the agriculture bit was directed at the whole state, which includes ISU. Minus the rape part, you could just insert ISU and it wouldn't change much, pretty shoddy stuff all around.

    The writer apparently didn't have very many funny things to say so he just used lots of profanity for shock value. Maybe he should have had someone from WRNL right it for him.

    Maddox was on Penn and Teller last season (old people episode) - seeing him for the first time, I couldn't believe that he was Maddox. Does not look at all like a guy who would write "The Alphabet of Manliness." I barely remember when he didn't suck... "Ding! Ding! Ding! Here comes the..." from the crummy children's art was and still is pretty funny in my book.

    Maybe if you're that uptight you just shouldn't read it. Or, maybe you'd like to suck our collective *****, Mr. Garrison.
    Found it enjoyable you are bashing someone's writing when you can't even spell write right.

    personally I love this kind of stuff, but you also have to be able to laugh at yourself and be able to not take everything seriously. It is a helpful skill in real life to be able to take a joke. I'm suprised there are so many uptight people here.

    Being born in the 1930s will have that effect on you.

    There's a difference between being uptight and not finding profanity used for nothing more than shock value funny. I mean South Park uses a ton of profanity, but they use it with funny material. I don't mind the profanity at all. I just didn't think the material that went with it was all that funny. I didn't get upset about it, I just found most of it kind of boring.

    Which would be true if it was funny. There's a way to do satire and cynicism, and this really didn't have much of it. Again, it just seemed to try too hard.
