Best Laughable Ignored Posts (BLIPs)

The spurned shall have their revenge!

Still high from the win in Minnesota, I thought we could best renew our mojo by digging deep into the archives of hilarious posts on AN that have been received absolutely no credit. The idea came from the pathetic fact that I sometimes "lol" at my own posts, which then go completely unnoticed (or unresponded to). Due to the high value that our society places on humility, I have decided not to highlight any of my own BLIPs, and instead ask only for yours. Recent posts that come to mind include the one where someone said that during the coin toss to decide the possible tie-breaker with the Angels, "Macha chose the side of the coin, and neither heads nor tails." Posted too late, perhaps, but deserving of the rather mild glory that only AN can bestow upon such fine wit. The French call this type of belated genius "l'esprit de l'escalier," "staircase wit," meaning what you realize you should have said at the party while you are walking down the stairs on your way home. Sorta of like a "Comeback QOTM" with no prize other than our temporary admiration. So post your BLIPs and make a case for why they deserve our appreciation.
