To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    Man, tough crowd.

    Maybe you could call it "niche comedy." (Am I really explaining this?) I thought this was obvious, if you've looked around that site.
    You can't spell "justice" without ISTJ.

    Agreed. Whoever wrote it can't tell the difference between insulting people and being funny. Insults are often funny, but not inherently so. As you noted, not witty in the least.

    The insults aren't very good, either. I don't think anyone is going to being crying themselves to sleep over these. The author simply isn't clever enough to make them sting, or make them funny.

    Marm, your knee-jerk defense of anything that annoys people is getting really tiresome. Just because something attempts to be insulting or pisses people off doesn't make it funny. Look at the title, you can immediately tell that whoever wrote it is either rather stupid or incredibly uncreative. Talking? The whole universe of words that begin with T and the best they could do was Talking?

    No part of the article was notably clever, and it didn't resonate at all. Like, what the hell is up with their description of INFJs? Surely you weren't sitting at your monitor lol-ing and exclaiming, "That is soooo dead-on!" Admit it, it was lame. MBTI is not hard to mock, but this was just a massive fail.


    If you're the one who wrote the piece, I apologize for calling you stupid.

    I think a fair bit of ED's stuff is funny, but that wasn't.

    Considering the site in question that it's posted on, this isn't surprising.

    Uncyclopedia and its much bigger sister Encylopedia Dramatica exists entirely for this purpose. They're little more than 4chan rejects who think they're funny by insulting everything, "for the lulz".

    I'm not a fan of ED by any stretch of the imagination, but this...
    estj - memorizes stupid facts like baseball statistics than looks at you retarded when you bring up something that hasn't been in existance for at least 100 years
    ... is not wrong. And I LOL'd. I laughed a knowing laugh, because I can totally be that way.

    Wow. The writing here is terrible, which blunts any kind of inherent humor in the concept. Second, the concept has very little inherent humor. I'm a big proponent of the notion that you can get away with insulting anyone or anything if you're funny enough. This just isn't funny.
