Wow. talk about superiority complexes... I bet you're all a riot at parties. Must you ruin everything for me?
I used to be passionate about politics. After too much Fark, I really just hate everyone. Now you're deconstructing and demeaning the shiat out of a newspaper humor columnist who has managed to somehow not be depressingly condescending and nasty while making jokes, something that must infuriate some of you bitter titty-giblets.

Just because you might be more intelligent than the average bear, doesn't mean you have to absolutely shiat all over everything, This is like slightly more sophisticated YouTube commenting.

Don't do this to a childhood favorite of mine. Fark all of the e-critics. You're like Red Sox fans: inflated self images, obnoxious, and haughty basement dwelling trollops who... holy crap I'm acting like you now.

Thanks, dicks.
The internet sucks.

quickdraw: poor Dave Barry. Before the internet he could say all the mildly witty things we were thinking but couldnt express to a wide audience. Now that we have forums and fb we can make our own wry comments about daily life and be just as funny.

Yea, he's just like the internet. Except for his well constructed sentences and correct punctuation and coherent thoughts and lack of racial slurs and.......

Animatronik: slackist: I don't get all the dislike for Barry, is it an American or a political thing?

I've always found his writing to be quite amusing, non-offensive and occasionally quote poignant.

He's not Stewart or Colbert, so his political humor is by definition not funny.

/every time Colbert takes a shiat he names each of his turds after a Republican politician, and like everything else he says that's the god dam funniest thing in the history of humor, no exceptions.

I see someone is upset about the death of Ham Rove.

Mugato: There was a sitcom based on him with Judge Reinhold from Night Court. I had the biggest crush on the mom for some reason.

Dave Barry may be past his prime, but what is worse IMO is that every local newspaper seems to have spawned a wannabe. Where I used to live in NYS, the paper has a guy named Dave something who tries to do the same shtick with a Jewish twist, and a woman with a column named "Lisa's Laws" which is the same tripe regurgitated over and over again, only she has an Italian uncle named Tony and a snowflake named Bella. I just don't get the love for this type of newspaper column. Maybe every so often, but not every week and not the same stuff over again. If I had read one more column from Lisa about how her NYCity friends don't understand living in the wilds of upstate NY, I'd have blown my brains out.

Luckily, I was smart enough to stop reading/cancel my subscription/move away from that hellhole.

/slashies in mid sentence, just to piss you off

I always look forward to Dave Barry's Year In Review. I also look forward to all the Dave Barry hate on Fark whenever his name comes up. I find both of these things amusing.

I sold Dave Barry a Panasonic notebook, 286/16 with a 30 meg hard drive.

Long time ago, yeah.

Ahh, Dave Barry...without your columns to reference how could grandparents think they're being "hip?"

Dave Barry hasn't been funny since the look on Dave's father's face when he impregnated Dave's mother.
