The World's Worst Sound ID'ed.

After a one-year study, the definitive answer was—a person vomiting. Microphone feedback was #2. Surprisingly, a dentist's drill only ranked 20th. (If you haven't seen the Mr. Creosote restaurant vomit scene from The Meaning of Life [youtube clip. about 5½ min.], well, think of the most disgusting thing you've ever seen/heard, then add infinity.)

I know it's not the correct blog entry to list this in, but I wouldn't want this comment to slide down the pecking order based on something as trite as chronology.

Your piece on BBDO just plain rocked. You were so cool, how you, like, identified their racially diverse rock gardens and thought up a new name for your bar. Fuck, man, you rocked.

Actually, no you didn't. You were a whiny, predictable, not-one-per-cent-as-fucking-funny-as-you-dream-about penoid.

Glad I got that off my chest.

With that off your chest, I hope you're able to now begin on your own issues, ole.

As always (ole's a long-time reader) thanks for reading.

Ole has a point here regarding writing style. You need to be less predictable, like, say, announcing your sarcasm. For example, "That rocked. Not.", or "...and by rocked I mean, not rocked", or the always unpredictable favorite "Actually, no you didn't." Because there's nothing so original as tricking your reader into thinking that you're serious, and then slyly turning the tables at the last second. That's magic.

Copyranter unmasked! He was once a lonely guy in a kitchen. Then he was briefly an extended middle finger, followed by a toilet paper teddy bear, then a wee lad. Now he's a scary mofo in a knit cap, looking like DeNiro in Taxi Driver.

worst sound is not vomiting. i vote for the tuba across the courtyard at my place, which has been trying to play the ride of the valkyries for two days now.

I think the music of Switchfoot wins for grossest sound. Or Newt Gingrich's voice. Or a turd plopping into a toilet.

What does being 6'2" have to do with anything?

My top five:

My dog barfing on my persian rug. From persia. At 3am.

A spoon in the garbage disposal.

A person's skull hitting pavement.

The finished buzzer on my damned dryer.

The voice of the receptionist at my last agency, paging me over the intercom.
