The Frontstretch: Top Ten Reasons People With No Sense of Humor Write In And Complain About These Lists by Jeff Meyer -- Wednesday September 15, 2010

10. See title.

9. No one ever explained to them the saying, “It’s better to remain silent and appear a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt.”

8. When they talk, all everyone else around them hears is, “blah, blah, blah, blah” so they resort to a keyboard.

The biggest threat facing our sport today is one Jeff Meyer – seen here in action practicing for Dale Jr.‘s ride next year. Seriously, the nerve of someone to crack jokes at the sanctioning body’s expense…

7. Who cares! I just want to see how many people will still write and complain about this one!

6. It is their way of confirming that, “Yes, I am smoking crack!”

5. They are Brian France’s or Dale Jr.’s relatives.

4. They are pissed because their hair is constantly messed up from jokes flying just over their head.

3. There wasn’t the concept of sarcasm where they grew up.

2. They have never heard of nor seen a David Letterman show.

1. Like professional wrestling, they still think NASCAR racing is real!

LOL

I just have to point out your picture and quote is a little too true. The guys that grew up racing dirt are in the Chase, and those that didn’t, like Jr., aren’t. The COT seems to favor dirt track drivers, and maybe Jr. should get some dirt tracking in.

In order to be subtle with some people you need a big sledge hammmer. It also used to work on GM carburetors.

And Harley carburetors, when Harleys still had carburetors. :)

Keep up the good work, Jeff! Some people will complain no matter what, even if you beat them with a brand new stick.

Sorry—there’s nothing here. Satire and good humor, especially dry humor, are my forte. For the clueless, look the word up—it’s in the dictionary (that book with words, meanings, and very few pictures).

Still waiting for some real humor in these lists.
