Shamanbear Is A Brave Reader

I noticed today in the comments that a reader named Shamanbear not only watched the entire Miley Cyrus video from yesterday but also counted every use of the word like in the 8 minute video.

According to Shamanbear, "ignoring incidents where the word "like" was used to indicate that she did in fact enjoy something she used the word "like" as a filler syllable approximately 70 times in almost 8 minutes. If you edited out all the "likes" and "uhms", the clip would only have been 42 seconds long."

Thank you Shamanbear. Now, according to my math that would be almost 9 "likes" a minute or one every six seconds for the entire 8 minutes. That is phenomenal. Now, in a 1.75 liter bottle of booze there are 60 shots which means that in less than 8 minutes, you and a group of your friends can be drunk by playing this game that is sweeping the nation. OK, not really the nation, but it is really popular in my basement.

Shamanbear, you are brave. I tried counting, but I decided I'd rather kill by brain cells with booze instead.

Patty said...

Give that reader an award! He/she certainly took one for the team. I can't even stand looking at her picture anymore.

Ms Cool said...

Like Shamanbear, you like really had some like guts to listen to that like video for so like long.

Pookie said...

Was that the video where Miley said the Twilight movies aren't as Christian as her pole dancing?

She gets on my nerves. Congrats, Shamanbear, for being able to listen to more than 5 seconds of her

Lisa (original) said...

Ms Cool, you like could've like inserted a "like" between like the "to listen" in like your like post above. LOL.

Go Shamanbear, cool name and brave soul! I didn't even watch the damn video yesterday, but perhaps now I will. Just peer review purposes of course. ;-P

Excellent point Whole_lotto_luv!

Listening to her (#1) and all the "like"s (#2), would've made me lose my mind. Bettah you than me, Samanbear, bettah you than me.

Ms Cool said...

Like Lisa (like original), like you are so like right!

DJ said...

i didn't watch the video when enty posted it the first time, but i watched it today out of curiosity. i made it about a minute. she is rather irritating

Yesterday she was dissing Twilight and today her Dad says it's one of his top 5 favorites.

sunnyside1213 said...

...oh and I meant to add, I love it that Enty reads our posts.

WTF said...

I'm with Patty. These celeb kids really need to be in school.

GladysKravitz said...

I listened to it yesterday. Like my own son, who is like 15, doesn't like talk that way. Like neither do his like female friends. Like someone has like too much money and like a daddy who like likes her on a stripper pole and like not enough brain cells to like shut the like f**k up.

Shamanbear, do you need medical attention now? I'm thinking that your blood pressure might be skyrocketing about now.

Adventurous Kate said...

Sunnyside, not only did he choose Twilight, he also said he thought the acting was great. *Shudder*

Shamanbear, if you're ever in Boston, please allow me to buy you a drink.

Well done shamanbear

good job shamanbear - i couldn't even bring myself to press the play button...

caydian said...

OMG...can you slow that 77 down to a 33? Some of us don't listen that fast!

Drcocks said...

On that same note, why in the hell is everyone saying "absolutely" now as a response to everything? It is driving me crazy. Especially journalists who are well educated and should know better. I heard one last night say that something was absolutely, partially true. WTF, it is right up there with, "that being said", "At the end of the day", and "Literally". Trying not to trip as I step off soap box.

redronnie said...

Shamanbear, I salute you. Now back to the game what size glasses should we use? Forget it the room is spinning and I think my best friend has passed out on the floor.

Sporky said...

Drcocks: Absolutely!

I agree. ;)

Thank you Shamanbear, because like brooklyn040204, I couldn't even click the link.

Terrance said...

Drcocks: Please as uber and obsessed to the list.

Carla said...

OT: Enty - I'd like to nominate Etta James and Sugar Pie DeSanto's song "In the Basement as your official theme song ;)

They should bleep all her likes out as if they were dirty words.

Mango said...

When I see the Hannah Montana junk in stores I want to smack the crap out of her; I utterly loathe that face she is making on all of her merchandise. Even my 12 year old niece has enough sense to know that Miley Cyrus is a steaming pile of poo.

If I believed in god I would ask him to forgive me for half-wanting to believe the rumors that surfaced last weekend she was dead. Okay, I said HALF wanting. So back OFF.

Good lord, she has a nose ring? Wow. How trendy and cool is she? Sex and a nose ring. :|
