With the new outbreak of people/person posting the pear, I just want to know, for purely academic reasons, whether people actually think it's funny or if it brightens your day at all.

I mean, personally, I don't find it funny at all. I mean, it's a pear with teeth and a stupid, non-english caption. Unless I'm missing something hilarious, I just find it incredibly juvenile and, well... kind of lame.

And especially with the annoying frequency with which people would post it with absolutely no relevance, it just gets really annoying.

IMO, the pear should stay banned. Thoughts?


Mods, I am not trying to start a spam thread/pear posting thread, so if you think it's a bad idea, just close it.

If anything should be banned, I wish it would be all the Kanye trash.

Buy fresh sliced deli ham and stop being a bitch. Also, never microwave ham ever, it's in strict violation of ham law.

It was never funny.

Its a substitute for not having anything worth posting.

You should be able to post it.

It was funny a long, long time ago, and it's still even relevant in some contexts. But it's a favorite tool of spamming retards. It's not banned because it's stupid. It's banned because of its spammy nature.

It still occasionally makes me laugh, but if it was unbanned it would be posted everywhere, because of its reputation.
So yeah, it should stay banned imo.

You're right, there are some times I want to post it because it fits in so perfectly. But I'm glad its banned because then spammers post it everywhere.

It was absolutely hilarious when it was new.


Not so much now.


I was very upset the day it became bannable, but I think it should stay that way now.

It's not funny, it wasn't funny the second, or first time either. The Pit is ruining its self lately with all of the spam and trolls.

If it wasn't banned, these "Nights of the Pear" would never happen...Probably.

That being said, this thread is almost as useless as the spam ones.

It can be funny in certain situations, but it gets waaaay overused and needs to stay banned.
#22
well the troll craves on making people angry and being all wtf i hate you and giving the troll attention like making a thread about it will make the trolls penis go hard thus making him do it more

so you want it to stop?
just ignore it or unban it then you will get a few people who post it just not 5 threads with just spam pears

I personally don't care if a troll posts the pear. If it happens all the time.....

It just reminded me that I don't find it funny and I wanted to see if people agreed. I guess they do.

So are you trying to say that by disliking internet memes you are an intelligent person?

Well, then trolls would have one less tool to spam with. Banning the pear just puts an unnecessary taboo on it, if you ask me.

I agree with this. I enjoy some memes, such as the Xzibit one, and I'm considered rather intelligent, with all honors classes and such. (can't take AP classes until sophmore, I'm a freshman.)

No it wouldn't. Whether it's a banned image or not, the threads this guy made for example are 100% spam. He'd end up banned either way.

It was funny when it first appeared, what , two years ago? GET OVER IT! It was funny the first I saw it, it was worth a quiet laugh to myself the second time, but it's a dead joke now and has been for a very, very long time. Why doesn't anybody understand humor? THE JOKE IS DEAD! It's banned because we're all sick of seeing it and every new user sees it for the first time and decides they want to start posting it.

and then he'll make a new account then post 20 more then a new account etc... it gets rediculous and impossible to stop which only makes it more tempting for the trolls

in itself it's an amusing image, but it has been overused far too much, like everything which becomes a meme. Funny once, meh twice, annoying three times.
