Here’s a fun little game…

Has anyone ever heard of Godwin’s law?  From Wikipedia (if not the most accurate, at least the most entertaining reference on the internet):

Godwin’s Law (also known as Godwin’s Rule of Nazi Analogies[1]) is an adage formulated by Mike Godwin in 1990. The law states:

As an online discussion grows longer, the probability of a comparison involving Nazis or Hitler approaches one.[2]

Godwin’s Law does not dispute whether any particular reference or comparison to Hitler or the Nazis might be appropriate. It is precisely because such a comparison or reference may sometimes be appropriate, Godwin has argued,[3] that overuse of the Nazi/Hitler comparison should be avoided, as it robs the valid comparisons of their impact.

Although in one of its early forms Godwin’s Law referred specifically to Usenet newsgroup discussions,[4] the law is now applied to any threaded online discussion: electronic mailing lists, message boards, chat rooms, and more recently blog comment threads and wiki talk pages.

Everytime you catch a Kaybot or Turd invoking Godwin’s Law, you get 53 pts.  Ready…….

GO!!!

    Comment #75 on the post entitled “Sneaky Sales Tactics from Mary Kay sales director Cindy Machado.”

    Katie
    Twinkie – in response to your last question of “Please do not bash Cindy for her seeming lack of wisdom and integrity. She is in a position where her vision is quite obscured. Does anyone agree?”

    No way, nuh huh not one bit. Should we then excuse Hitler? Stalin? Mussolini?

    *sigh*

    well, when you first get out of Mary Kay there is always that period of dramatics, where you want to sue the company and envision your upline in the flames of hell.

    But there is such a thing as overdoing it. You know,like if someone were to post the home address and make and model of a director’s car, in the hopes that someone will hurt her.

    Oh wait. That’s what they do at PT every day. huh.

    OK seriously duh, this is WAY too though provoking for these parts. I don’t want to have to think that much. Oh shit. Sorry. It’s the programing of PT taking over. Shit. Damn. Bitches.

    Whoa… this is totally hard. You need to point out any and all things that I should be aware of and shape my opinion. Thats what my former blog leader did and I need you to continue that.

    On PT Tigger said:
    “Tigger
    MLM’s remind me of why the so many Germans got on board with Hitler. Everyone has a deep soul desire to belong to something great. The country was still in an economic shambles after WWI. His speeches all sounded exciting and inspirational at first. Once he got the people behind him, he announced his real intentions. By that time, it was too late for the German people and their victims.”

    106 pts for me!! 🙂 None for any of you lazy asses!! 😦

    hahahahahahaha. I hate to tell anyone, but as much as MLMs suck, comparing it to the holocaust is a tiny bit offensive.
