Clever Idea Title

  (+31, -6)(+31, -6)(+31, -6)
(+31, -6)
  [vote for,

Long description of some activity or aspect of life, albeit not necessarily one which most people encounter on a daily basis. Reflections on its history, quite possibly entirely fabricated, with reference to its invention by someone French. Amusing, faintly philosophical musing on its positive aspects. Further musing.

However. Description of the problems that make the activity annoying, or would if anyone thought about it long enough. Thoughtful concern.

Tangential comments about some commonly-known item, whose application to the activity is not quite obvious yet.


With pride, description of product intended to fix these problems! Words of encouragement for people currently engaging in the activity without its assistance. Musing on its deceptive simplicity and helpful, user-friendly features. Description of how to use it.

Additional technical description of product, without inclusion of quite enough detail to be sure whether the product is actually possible. Helpful comments about additional applications and variations of the product, possibly to be developed/expanded on at a later date.

Casual mention and dismissal of details that make the whole thing likely to end with failure, or even large explosions.

[xaviergisz, Apr 20 2014]


       Clever annotation making use of a pun or several. Discussion of Idea's merits, and possibly (for a poor idea) casting of aspersions on the author's parentage.   

       Ruminations on the possibility of dispensing piscatorial /paleontological or wheat-based foodstuffs.   

       Award of +   

       Unitary [link] or several as appropriate.
csea, Oct 19 2010

       briefly notes that we've done this before, but doesn't provide any evidence.
xaviergisz, Oct 19 2010

       Recursion joke and/or obscure British popular culture reference. Deliberate mispelling.
mouseposture, Oct 19 2010

       Equally deadpan response to the two comments above, pausing only to pointlessly snark about Wales.
gisho, Oct 19 2010

       Choleric umbrage over the fact that a very similar idea to this exact idea was posted by this baker 2 years prior and was roundly panned, yet this idea has garnered 3 (3!) buns simply because it is not so mean spirited. Grit-toothed grousing over the unfairness of bakers and the halfbakery.
bungston, Oct 19 2010

       Conversation stopper.
Ling, Oct 19 2010

       suggests the idea should be MFD for contradictory reasons (e.g. baked and bad science).
xaviergisz, Oct 19 2010

       Bone by house curmudgeon, followed by calls from other bakers to be less curmudgeonly. Direct challenge by house cheerleader to curmudgeon. Deletion of a random account by someone upset by the exchange. Random bakery crash.
RayfordSteele, Oct 19 2010

       Gratuitous mention of explosives, cats or dressing gowns, to attract the attention of [8th of7], thus guaranteeing the idea will now veer off-topic into reminiscences of how he accompanied Joseph Conrad up the Congo River, approximately 100 years ago.**   

       **Obscure cross-reference to [8/7]'s own Heart Of Darkness, it might seem.
infidel, Oct 20 2010

       Exalts cleverness of title while nonchalantly making tweaking suggestions disguised as humorous anecdotes meant to bring smile to post-er, but are really touching inside jokes refering to actual meat-space meeting.   

       <insertion of colon/space/right parenthesis>   

       annotation pointing out some very minor detail of the post, but chalking it all up to be very important. A demand for answers. Finally, an association between the current idea and a childhood traumatic event that most likely won't lead to any further developments.
daseva, Oct 20 2010

       Thesauristically obfuscated sesquipedalian non-sequitur.
lurch, Oct 20 2010

       Pedantic mention of proper spelling and punctuation of //mispelling// i,e, msiipelling.   

       Various markings for deletion, tagline, delectation, expiry, and assorted other consequences.
csea, Oct 20 2010

       Excessively literal reaction, siting lack of details in description and calling for detailed drawings while backhandedly promoting one of my own ideas and including a link to idea no one ever read. Rounding with rewrite of original idea which dispels original comedic aspects but results in build-able version that no one is interested in.
MisterQED, Oct 20 2010

       Attempt at final word on subject, doomed to propagate endless annos.
csea, Oct 20 2010

       Attempt at humourous clarification of original idea, mildly disparaging more practical version. Several irrelevant comments, included because the puns were irresistable.
gisho, Oct 20 2010

       A jabbing retort to a previous annotation that does not in any way involve me. An attempt to cover my own selfish human tendencies with further investigation into an only slightly heretofore mentioned issue involving the original idea.
daseva, Oct 20 2010

       Query about lack of custard in idea.
Jinbish, Oct 20 2010

       More puns
pocmloc, Oct 20 2010

       Utterly unrelated rant on subject mis-construed from earlier annotation. Generalised dig at Americans. May contain humour.
Twizz, Oct 20 2010

       Makes note of anno by long absent 'baker and adds effusive salutation as if they were a long, lost relative (possibly one to whom I've lent money). Makes no comment about idea whatsoever.
DrBob, Oct 20 2010

       suggests meeting up for beer.

       What (name of random halfbaker from annotations list above) said. This is [genius|a pile of crap]!!! - see link. <faux HTML tag>
hippo, Oct 20 2010

       sexual innuendo poorly disguised as relevant to the idea. Angry response to a complete misunderstanding of what [csea] said.
Voice, Oct 20 2010

       Attempt at witty response, which starts by making the observation that some fundamental view is in fact a fallacy, but which inevitably falls on deaf ears

       Adds some odd idea which seems to improve the original idea (at least as far as the poster is concerned)   

       Seemed like a sensible thing to do at the time.
[po] Here's a shovel, m'dear
[edit] Re-reading the post and annos much later (sometimes years) prompts to add a disclaimer or remove the anno altogether
[edit2, much later - assumes anno wasn't removed] adds a link tangentially to do with the post, just to stir things up a bit

po, Oct 20 2010

       Certain well-chosen letters that elicit an appropriate and pant-wettingly amusing meaning when arranged into groups called words.
Ian Tindale, Oct 20 2010

       Witty deliberate misunderstanding of previous anno.
egbert, Oct 20 2010

       Purposefully delayed [marked-for-deletion] no idea just to mess with the people who are having so much fun with the annos and to see them quiver as the whole thing gets put in front of a judge.
daseva, Oct 20 2010

       Sarcastic conveyance of lack of concern.
egbert, Oct 20 2010

       Reply to anno that no longer exists.
egbert, Oct 20 2010

       [infidel] has not deleted anno yet.
po, Oct 20 2010

       Gentle chiding towards previous poster. Points out that the reference was obviously to a different anno. Asks which part of "no longer exists" is hard for previous poster to understand. Salutations and enquiries after health due to length of time since last direct communication with previous poster.
egbert, Oct 20 2010

       jutta advises - go to email or some other place ...
po, Oct 20 2010

egbert, Oct 20 2010

       hugs and kisses of long lost friends ...
po, Oct 20 2010

       Use of anno for purpose of social interaction with no acknowledgement of the idea's existence.
normzone, Oct 20 2010

       Insertion of <link> to obscure prior art.   

       Long-winded refutation of annotation intended to attract contributor's attention, including further <link> to tangentially relevant wikipedia article, ending with diatribe against cats and several thinly-veiled sideswipe against other annotators and social or racial groups, involving quotes from literature and a request for someone to "do the math".
8th of 7, Oct 20 2010

       anno entered too late to capitalize on puns, debunking of part of idea,(obviously not having read the last paragraph), and later...   

       short apology
dentworth, Oct 20 2010

       Finds time to do pencil sketch of idea. Finds illustration to be lacking something and slightly skewed.   

       Posts it anyway.   

       Arnbitrimble smorciliard brex.
Ian Tindale, Oct 20 2010

       Link to interpretation of anno above.
normzone, Oct 20 2010

       On re-reading idea in hope of finding new target to attack, finally notices [mouseposture]'s obscure British popular culture reference. Posts cryptic non-sequitur punning annotation refering to same which only one other reader understands and which actually isn't even funny.   

       Finally remembers to dispense baked goods because flattered by [infidel]'s gratuitous mention of cats and explosives.
8th of 7, Oct 20 2010

       <Pleased that someone recognized obscure reference, but does not post anno.>
mouseposture, Oct 20 2010

       <a reread of most the post just to soak it in before it's left for dead>   

       An emphatic statement to help elucidate the difference between the intended play on words (post everything as a noun definition of what would be there otherwise) and what lots of people are doing and I have already done on error (post everything as a verb). A remark about the shamefulness that should henceforth be instilled in any guilty 'bakers!

       Refers to himself in the third person.
hippo, Oct 21 2010

       Pedantically disagrees with [pertinax] but cannot find the link that explains how it is garbled from a genuine text.
pocmloc, Oct 21 2010

       Raises pet topic on the flimsiest of inferences, goes on to construct an absurdly analogical straw man using a series of leaping and contradictory assertions, before toppling it with the most nonchalant of rhetoric leanings and thence asserting some generalised slice of cliché as if it were undeniably the case.   

       <Spends another 5 minutes trying to remember how to get the little flick to appear over the e in cliché>   

       <Decides to point out ones own typographical preciseness in a vain attempt to appear fastidious and pedantic>
zen_tom, Oct 21 2010

       Belated and pointless attempt to get back on topic by pointing out that the idea is worthless because not universally applicable, cannot be manufactured using technology available in the Third World, and cannot be realised using open source methodologies.
egbert, Oct 21 2010

       Comparison of US American/UK spelling and word usage. Explanation of disparate meanings for similar phraseology. Acknowledgement of Australian viewpoint while maintaining that this poster is not in a position to comment meaningfully on such. Joke about irregular verbs.
egbert, Oct 21 2010

       Inevitable own spelling mistake nestles invisibly (except to all others) among a pompous correction of a recent spelling infarction.
Ian Tindale, Oct 21 2010

       Sullenly points out that so-called American spelling is a perfectly acceptable UK variant according to the OED.
pocmloc, Oct 21 2010

       <attempts to think up pun based on [egbert]'s annotation>   


       Out of frustration, posts well reasoned and useful comment on original idea, but then gets diverted into unjustified ad-hominem attack on previous three annotators out of spite and annoyance at inability to think up suitably clever pun and/or putdown.   

       <returns to 'recent' view in search of softer target to attack>
8th of 7, Oct 21 2010

       Blatant attempt to fan the flames of the spelling dispute by suggesting that the variant spelling applies, in fact, to an alternate version of the product that will be made available to our friends across the pond, as soon as the simplified manual with the primary-colored pictures is complete.

       So, based on your illustration, the only finishing points are "sad", "latin", "jokes about wales", and "marked for deletion" ... Hmm. Yeah, 'bout right.
daseva, Oct 22 2010

       The others just sit around, waiting to be churned, stuck in an endless loop like autistic zombie neurons.   

       Of those that meet a definite end, Latin and Wales spell a sort of "heat death" for an idea; MFD seems to leave them in suspended animation and sad seems best to sum up the remainder.
infidel, Oct 22 2010

       Effusive thanks to [2fries] for sketching it just as I imagined it!   

       Kudos to [infidel] for the illustration. Inquiry as to whether anyone knows a joke about Wales that happens to be in Latin, as that seems the only appropriate capper to a rapidly disintegrating anno stream.
