I guess what Kanye West did to Taylor Swift doesn't count?  :P

Har-de-har-har. Very droll.

"License key - good girl, you found it!"
Made me smile. Simple. Rather clever, poking fun, and heavily sarcastic too. I'm keeping a copy for future use...

I have seen more than one post about this issue.  Most are from DC's early days.
I view myself as one of the most basic, novice-computer-users there are but had no difficulty finding/using my License Key.
Mine was emailed w/ very easy to follow directions.  Maybe these steps weren't explained as well earlier?

p.s.  Wasn't meant to be sarcastic... just *silly humor*  ;D

Trying to understand to what extent Americans might need someone like Bloomberg to instigate a revolution in their private lives regarding customary dietary habits/needs/wants (e.g., his "big soda" ban), I was doing a search for relevant material.
Quite by chance - I think the keywords were "revolution" and "private life" - I stumbled upon this entirely unexpected and unrelated and very clever piece of fair use commentary and parody from WW II. It's a video in the Archive.org collecton of "Universal Newsreels", of Nazi film footage that was doctored by British Intelligence, put to music, and broadcast in cinemas worldwide for public ridicule/amusement: (to view and for explanation as to how this made clever reference to the then current fashions in Germany, see the commentary at the link)
Lambeth Walk – Nazi Style (1942) | The Public Domain Review.

I didn't get the full joke until I read the commentary. One still sees that kind of clever and often ironic satire or "send-up" in British humour.

The Archive.org collecton of "Universal Newsreels" also has a video (partial newsreel footage) of Eleanor Roosevelt publicly telling a joke about her husband: 1943-09-30 Mrs FDR Tells One.

One still sees that kind of remarkably self-aware and somewhat self-effacing humour in America, which is why I have always rather liked American humour and satire.

Oh! Did you create that image? If so, then the sarcasm was clearly unintentional, but I saw it as dripping with suppressed sarcasm - the unmissably huge size of the key being the main thing. I mean, how could one miss it? I am always puzzled by those angry comments that complain about it.
If you did create that image, then nicely done by the way.    :Thmbsup:

Not my art.  I just added the DC address.  The huge key was directly related to my License Key size... which is literally around 5 feet long.  ;D
If it gets longer, with each new member, it must be about 6 or 7 feet by now.

Came across this comment today:

I just love the alliteration highlighted.

One question concerning this confusing conundrum: Where's the alleged alliteration at?

well I dont know was that intentional, (I suspect it was), but I enjoyed it anyway :-)


edit// I see Wikipedia defines it as:

Quote
Alliteration is the repetition of the same sounds or of the same kinds of sounds at the beginning of words or in stressed syllables of an English language phrase
(my emphasis)

I always thought it was just the initial letters in the words.

Sorry for any confusion. Finger trouble. I don't know how "alliteration" got in there. I was in a hurry to answer the phone, and hit the "Post" button before answering the phone. I had meant to type "allusion to slippery customers".
It's at the link I gave: http://www.news-watch.co.uk/node/216
 - it's in the comments below the post at that link.
(Shall go back and correct my mistuk now.)

One-liners are my favorite 'cause they don't give the listener time to get bored.   :)   I grew up watching Alan King on The Ed Sullivan Show.

You do live longer with bran, but you spend the last fifteen years on the toilet.   - Alan King

These are not his style of humor but *silly* none the less ..

It's hard to explain puns to kleptomaniacs because they always take things literally.

That one made me literally laugh out loud! I love it. (c:
