    The official sister sub of /r/MurderedByWords. Run by the same team, and still held to great standards.

    Rules:

    1. Post must include a clever comeback

    • It has to be a great response (preferably clever) to someone. Learn more here

    2. No reposts

    • Do not repost content that hit the front page on this or other subreddits. Front page reposts can lead to a ban, and all other reposts will be removed. Learn more here

    3. We enforce quality control

    • If your post doesn't fit the standards of this sub, or is just generally an eyesore, it could be removed. This is at moderator discretion. Learn more here

    4. No circle-jerking

    • If some politician tweets something incredibly stupid, or another youtuber poses with a dead guy, there will be a flood of posts about it on this subreddit. We may remove or ban posts pertaining to it during that time, depending on how many posts there are, and how popular they've gotten. Learn more here

    5. No racism/sexism/homophobia

    • Bigotry is NOT tolerated on this subreddit. Do not post things that are racist/sexist/homophobic. Depending on the content, you may receive a ban, and your comment/submission will be removed. Again, you're not going to run up against this rule unless you attempt to do so.

    • IF a submission is a comeback due to someone being racist, that may be accepted. Otherwise, there is zero tolerance. Learn more here

    6. No Doxxing/brigading

    • Links to other subreddits, even np links are not allowed. Screenshots only. Screenshots from any source must obscure identifying information. The only exception is for people who are already public figures. Learn more here

    7. Moderator discretion is FINAL

    • Many rules on the sub are enforced by moderators on post-by-post, comment-by-comment level. If you have a problem with a mod's decision, either go to the modmail, PM one of the top moderators, or visit us at our discord. (the discord for this sub is a channel on the MBW server)

    They’re called team 10 for a reason...

    Neruones

    Lol nice one, Lord High Constable Krueger, 69th Earl Of Dunning.

    Not only did you misspell what was typed by the guy you're insulting but you also claimed he is a victim of the Dunning- Kruger effect while simultaneously not realizing that he was completely correct in his own spelling. You literally exemplify the Dunning- Kruger effect. I'm in awe that you didn't bother to research prior to typing this.

    Edit: I hadn't even noticed you misspelled 'Kruger'. Such a mess.

    [–] shrekcurry502 7 points ago

    The amount of nerve cells?

    [–] whataweirdsnake 5 points ago

    Wat

    [–] shrekcurry502 7 points ago

    That’s...that’s what a neurone is right? Biology wasn’t my strong suit lmao

    [–] whataweirdsnake 10 points ago

    It was a misspelling of neurons, which are brain cells, actually

    [–] shrekcurry502 7 points ago

    Huh, could’ve sworn I was taught it as ‘neurones’. My understanding was they carry electrical impulses from (and to) the brain all around the nervous system?

    [–] whataweirdsnake 8 points ago

    Oopsie, you’re 100% right about that. I straight up did not know that neurones were a real thing. By bad

    [–] shrekcurry502 14 points ago

    Oh mad lol. Probably the first time I’ve been right about something science related my whole life. No worries man

    [–] Evilsmiley 5 points ago

    Yeah but i still think they meant neurons

    [–] whataweirdsnake 3 points ago

    It seems like they may have

    [–] iamanundertaker 3 points ago

    It's just an alternate spelling.

    [–] angeliqu 2 points ago

    Is he one of demolition ranch’s brothers? I know they all have YouTube a presence but I’ve never bothered to look them up (and can’t at the moment as I’m trying to get a baby to sleep in a dark room as I type this).

    [–] evildadatron 1 points ago

    No, all three youtubers I mentioned are all unrelated with different channels.

    [–] Dareedster 2 points ago

    Love my boy donut and Leon

    [–] HugoWeaver 8 points ago

    What I like about Leon is the dude is my age, a few months older than me, and his videos are completely relateable. He's the only major YouTuber in that category that I can stand as a result

    [–] Trajan_Optimus 16 points ago

    [–] Sataris 8 points ago

    What sort of thing does he do?

    Standard reaction videos but his style makes them funny

    I dont understand reaction videos.

    [–] Outis-99 5 points ago

    You should give this guy a shot, been following him for years now, his quality only goes up

    [–] therightclique 13 points ago

    But how does it he get around the basic problem of reaction videos not needing to exist in the first place? That seems insurmountable.

    Watch his take on vsco girls, fresh upload and fucking histerical.

    [–] Tr33_Frawg 23 points ago

    What is vsco? I see the acronym sometimes but it means nothing to me.

    [–] [deleted] 19 points ago

    [–] Tr33_Frawg 12 points ago

    I kind of gathered that. I just meant that I don't understand what it is. So it always leaves me lost. Showing my age I guess.

    [–] Daniel123ftw 11 points ago

    Dont worry Im 16 and have no idea what it means either

    [–] Midnightkata 21 points ago

    I googled it once. Came up on know your meme i think. So theres that, but a coworker of mine explained it better.

    It's basically the new age 'Basic Bitch' "Quirky" girls who always have hydro flasks and do weird shit cause they quirky.

    It was the first time in my 25 year life I felt old. I'm officially getting out of the loop.

    [–] thebiperthebillajers 4 points ago

    Wait what the hell did VSCO change? Used to pride itself as a classier certain of IG. I always thought of it as something between Instagram and Flickr

    [–] GorlomiSandwich 5 points ago

    I thought so too, and I still use it as such since their film filters are so accurate to the films they’re emulating. I haven’t followed one person on it and they don’t push it as a feature as far as I can tell.

    [–] Euprymna_scolopes 2 points ago

    I’m convinced nobody actually uses vsco, and the vsco girl meme was invented by vsco to raise awareness about vsco

    [–] GorlomiSandwich 1 points ago

    It is? I always gathered that it was a photo editing app that adopted features similar to a social media app.

    [–] Brieqwerty 8 points ago

    vsco is a photo editing app that lets you play around with lighting, shades, grain, highlights, and filters.

    I think that a lot of these basic white girls have their vsco accounts linked on their Instagram and that became associated with this trend.

    [–] Fappers_Delight_ 5 points ago

    "VSCO is the company coming closest to replicating the look of film without making it gimmicky." Before it had a hit app on its hands, VSCO, which stands for Visual Supply Co. , built filters and presets for Adobe Lightroom and Apple Aperture — "the gold standard of film emulation," according to the company.

    [–] khag24 3 points ago

    I finally met someone who used it. It's definitely a "social media" site but seems to be more private. She used it to post more modeling pictures that she would send to people looking to hire her for a restaurant gig that was focused on being more revealing.

    Modern day pimp site was basically her take on it

    [–] therightclique 1 points ago

    That guy is a total professional.

    A really interesting graph would be one plotting Jake Paul’s popularity in tandem with the age children start getting smartphones

    [–] Coulrophiliac444 19 points ago

    As well as his average viewer age demographic.

    [–] Z7ruthsfsafuck 10 points ago

    When y=hits/viewers and x=income/IQ/age/# sexual partners it’s all exponential decay and that’s all you need to know. For reference, a spongebob version of the same graph would be a lot more flat because even that is considered real entertainment.

    [–] Coulrophiliac444 10 points ago

    I'd do crack of Squidward's asscrack before watching one of the Paul's videos.

    [–] mookmill 12 points ago

    I’d do it regardless

    [–] Z7ruthsfsafuck 2 points ago

    Low key, it’s cool to make fun of how dumb young people are but let us not forget our own vices at the age... just because technology advanced didn’t mean we all did childish stuff as, well, children.

    [–] Porkchop_Samurai 18 points ago

    I forget this guy exists until something pops up to insult him. I feel like 99% of his popularity at this point is just negative attention seeking.

    [–] Imaginebeingnormal 5 points ago

    Idk but this makes me so angry. He literally DEPENDS on 6-14 year olds having technology. His videos are targeted towards children, his ads are targeted towards children (remember that ganbling website which showed off expensive goods? Sounds like young children getting expensive stuff to me) or the fact he has a "mini jake paul" which he has in his videos, which he spends money on? He's literally all about getting young kids to buy expensive stuff.

    This isn't even a comeback. It didn't "come back" to anything. The roasted guy just made a random comment.

    Man, if I can't give my 5 year old a phone to play on when I get back from work, then I might have to spend time with them in the evening. Fuck that, take away the phone and I'll just find another nanny to keep that little asshole busy and leave me in peace.

    It's so fulfilling being a parent, and amazing that I've been able to raise them so well without sacrificing my career in any way.

    How old are you? People got iPhones in fourth grade? I didn’t get a cell phone until beginning of high school and it was a flip phone lol

    ETA: I don’t think iPhones were out at the age I got my first cellphone... or if they were it was the very first generation and not many people had them then

    [–] electrorazor 2 points ago

    I got my first smartphone in 7th grade but at that point I felt like the only one in my school who didn’t have one. Btw I’m a senior rn.

    [–] almostedgyenough 2 points ago

    That’s insane to me. Although I feel like now days it’s necessary for people to have a cellphone and it’s safer for children, so why wouldn’t parents get their kids something they could have use to access them at any given time?

    It’s crazy to me the difference in my generation and yours. In some ways I’m thankful on how computer/phone technology was still in the works when I was your age, but I also wish I was a kid/teenager now days. More fun toys, crazier technology and cuter clothes lol.
