No... not the crippled or physically disabled kind, but what some of my friends are (somewhat fortunate, it's just a figurative speech)
I've been wondering, what the heck separates a funny joke from a lame one? Putting both of them down the table, it's obvious that people laughs at both of them... well, less for the lame one though.
I got curious, and tried to find out what sets them apart. Taken from answers.com, this what lame means -
"Lame is a slang adjective used to describe things of poor, or incomplete, quality in a manner that is synonymous with crap or dim-witted. It is also used as a mock against inexperienced users and less than provocative, or 'uncool,' performances..."
Sometimes i wonder if we were refering to someone as lame, should we have just labelled him/her 'pathetic'?
Sometimes, some people are just plain lame, with the blinking capital 'L'. (no reference to L of Death Note; he rocks!)
A Russell Peters video, about beating your kids! Hilarious.
Love & Peace!~
