Journal: Mentioning Clippy Does Not Make Your Comment Funny!

Journal by Mr. Neutron
I can't for the life of me figure out why

IN SOVIET RUSSIA

invariably gets Score: -1, whereas any post involving Clippy, even when it is completely off-topic, gets Score: 5, Funny. Some examples:

Exhibit A
Exhibit B
Exhibit C
Exhibit D
Exhibit E
Exhibit F
Exhibit G
Exhibit H
Exhibit I
Exhibit J

AFTER THE FORTY-SECOND-THOUSANDTH TIME, IT ISN'T FUNNY ANYMORE!!!!!!

All Clippy comments modded as "Funny" will be M2'ed by me as "Unfunny." You have been warned.

It is much easier to suggest solutions when you know nothing about the problem.
