I prefer "funny" because that means other people enjoyed my comment.  "Smart" just means they think I'm clever.  I prefer entertaining other people.

If there were a third button that was a disapproving scowl, I'd prefer that one.

Penis.

King Something: Penis.


That's "weeners!"
 
2022-11-29 8:44:52 PM  
Why not both?
 
2022-11-29 8:46:22 PM  
Either.  It means someone was paying attention to me.

labman: Either.  It means someone was paying attention to me.


True.  But I love people thinking I'm funny.  I can't help it.

Some people use funny as a down vote, which is funny in its own way.
 
2022-11-29 9:02:53 PM  
yes.

Funny requires smarts to be a bit witty. Smart doesn't mean that you're witty, however. Funny is the best of both worlds.

However, in my case, I have to settle for funny looking.

Every Funny vote I get is proof of me doing subby's mom, so

Depends on whether I'm trying to be smart or funny, but being found smart when attempting funny sure beats the other way around.

Wait a sec... you too?
 
2022-11-29 9:15:59 PM  
Well, "funny" makes me happy, more than boring.
 
2022-11-29 9:16:31 PM  
I usually try to split the difference and just be Farty

Smart and funny are the trifecta.

I think I've been "Politics Smart" more than "Politics Funny".  But I like both.

Ugh. Fine.

"Funny". That's what I usually go for. "Smart" doesn't necessarily mean you;re smart, just that people agree with you on this issue. This isn't Dateline.

Mugato: "Funny". That's what I usually go for. "Smart" doesn't necessarily mean you're smart, just that people agree with you on this issue. This isn't Dateline.


You are so right.

Well I personally, prefer "funny."  Because it makes other people happy.

I'm just here to funny this comment of mine.

I dunno, I don't look back at my comments after I've posted them. The times I've had a lot of one or the other I found out because someone emailed me.
 
2022-11-29 10:38:08 PM  
Smart means at least one other person is as sick or twisted and jaded and I'm not alone.

Or, maybe I'm thinking teenager...
 
2022-11-29 10:39:05 PM  

King Something: Penis.


It's the only way.
 
2022-11-29 10:51:37 PM  
I prefer the vote to validate what I was going for.

When I'm being serious, I prefer smart. Unless I'm adding a tinge of humor. Then I prefer twice as many smart votes than funny. When I'm f*cking around, I prefer funny. Unless f*cking around has a hint of truth, then I prefer twice as many funny votes as smart votes.

I suspect you know how to vote on this comment.
 
2022-11-29 11:10:44 PM  
I prefer funny. On one hand it's a sarcastic funny like "you're a jerk" on the other hand someone thinks I'm genuinely funny. Win win for me.
 
2022-11-29 11:16:21 PM  
I would prefer to be found "Rich" as then you need to be neither Smart nor Funny.
 
2022-11-29 11:26:51 PM  

isamudyson: I would prefer to be found "Rich" as then you need to be neither Smart nor Funny.


Yes, genius. Then you will be both because as rich person you can force people to find you smart and funny.

You can "Get Smart" if you are a "Funny Girl"

Dare to be stupid.

Depends on the comment. If it is serious discussion and i post a thought, i like to see a few "smart" clicks. It means they agree or feel i am on to something.

But if it is a post where humor is involved and i make a joke or post a meme, i like to see a "funny" click. It means the smiled or laughed.

Both are great.
 
2022-11-30 2:57:15 AM  
Depends. On Fark the funny button either means we're laughing with you or we're laughing at you. We need a [stupid] button for comments.

Can't have that.

Certain associates of a Mr. Curtis might get filtered by the actual Farkers and no longer be able to bait idiots like myself into increasing the comment counts on threads.

I dont really give a fark about the opinions of people i will never meet, and have never been stupid enough to allow my mental well being to be determined by pixles on a computer screen

Others might refrain

I like it when I make a really dumb comment and I regret it but someone still bothers to click one or the other.
 
2022-11-30 5:44:31 AM  
I'm not going into this stinkhole without, fart hero.
