Not exactly eponysterical, but close: It is amusing to see these two threads posted consecutively. "Definition" of eponysterical

Odd that. Almost but not quite eponysterical. Nor syncronicity for that matter. Apologies to those now with "Every Breath You Take" in their heads

Didn't touch me, lilnemo, I'm many miles away.

The funny here isn't related to usernames, correct? The use of eponysterical -- great word by the way -- is throwing me off my game.

I have to admit not seeing the funny either. I was putting that down to having a German surname, but if I'm not the only one...

How long have you been waiting to drop that word? /because I've been waiting since I first saw it on a metafilter post linked here.

I found it amusing due to the multiple misspellings in the post after the "are you smarter than a... " post. Didn't want to piss in the thread and appear to be calling lilnemo out. I should have avoided using eponysterical. I should have avoided posting this too, probably. Just being silly. Carry on.

I wasn't trying to critique your use of the word.

It's too bad they can't give everyone a vasectomy at birth and then require that you meet certain financial and mental requirements in order to get it reversed. . . Comment icon posted by docshredder at 7:25 PM CST on March 11 Eponysterical?

Now we're talking.

Another example! Not the user name, but the name on the profile! OK, get this. Anabolic steroids did not make Barry Bonds the Home Run King. Talent did. Steroids won't give you a perfect home run stroke, have nothing to do with hand eye coordination, and don't give hitters Superman abilities to lay off bad pitches. I am getting quite irritated that everyone thinks anabolic steroids do nothing but harm people. Posted by: Breedlover1

I suspect that email address in the profile ("a better plan for you") might have something to do with improving your strength and body shape, too.
