Why can I not just post a lousy gif on this thing? I am hardly asking for the world. People are posting gifs with reckless abandon on here all the livelong day. Some people? Some people even post them with impunity.
But not this guy with two thumbs! (Me.) OH NO! That would just be beyond the pale, I guess! For poor little Paul F. Tompkins to post a funny gif of him saying a word!
Instead it just has to sit there, frozen, no word over the image, so it looks like I just posted some STILL PHOTO of me with my mouth hanging open FOR NO REASON.
Thanks, Tumblr. FOR NOTHING, WHEN IT COMES TO THE UPLOADING GIFS DEPARTMENT!
I’m happy with everything else, though, I have to say. Good site.
UPDATE: Thank you all for your kind words, thoughts, prayers, PayPal donations, covered dishes, and condolence jewelry in this moment of doubt and pain. I have now been told many times over that the gif must be under 1MB in order for the animation to properly display. Perhaps such a thing will be possible be day. If not for me, then for my children’s children. NOT my immediate children. If they have been born somewhere, they are refusing to contact me, and now all these oversized lollipops I bought for them are rotting. I’m not made of money, kids! Just disgusting human materials, like everybody else!
Aaron takes a ride at a questionably hygienic water park, Janie takes a stand for gender specific nouns, and the duo struggle to let autocorrect do the talking. Plus, what’s more worthless: male empowerment groups or those guys that direct you to open spaces in parking garages?
Hi friends! I see many of you often post pictures that you ask us to “Share if you support the troops!” It’s a nice reminder to be grateful to the men and women who risk their lives to protect us. But, while it is certainly pleasant, in truth, it probably doesn’t do much more than to…
Aaron suggests some truly unorthodox options for a hostess gift, Janie is recruited by the Scientologists, and the duo’s very friendship is threatened when they attend an SMU Theatre alumni event together. Plus, does a “French Goodbye” include tongue and is “salsa” an appropriate condiment to have out at party?
Ring! Ring! Ring! is a short film that the wonderful Apple Sisters are currently running through the film festival circuit, so we just get a trailer for now. Still, there’s lots of promise for this short with Candy, Cora, and Seedy and a bean eating Paul F. Tompkins.
