We need more stereotype-filling quotes

    Tsundere developers.



  • You know what's awesome is just casually dropping Japanese words that nobody knows except other pimple-faced anime fans.

    I looked it up. I still don't get the joke



  • Me neither.

    But there probably isn't one, so don't feel too bad.



  • Tsundere (ツンデレ?, pronounced [tsɯndeɽe]) is a Japanese character development process that describes a person who is initially cold and even hostile towards another person before gradually showing their warm side over time.

    i'm going to read the quoted post to see if it gives some kind of context

    I don't really care whether or not you care. It's my thread.



  • Their catchphrase is, "It's not like I did it for you, idiot!" with variations.



  • we're talking about programmers? there's no "warm side"



  • It's just a variation on the catchphrase. That's the first thing I thought of when I saw it. I know very well that they don't mean it that way, but I tend not to let reality get in the way of comedy.



  • oh, in that case, don't let me interrupt you



  • @Magus said:

    comedy.

    You keep using that word.

    I know that there are people here who will find this at least mildly amusing. If you are not one of them, good for you, I guess? It's good to know blakey has such close friends?



  • @Magus said:

    I just can't connect the dots between the two things (your quote and @Jarry's quoted definition).



  • @Magus said:

    Nope, I think it's just you.



  • Read more posts? It's a variation of a common quote which several people here have seen numerous times. The common quote is stated above. The definition stated above is a definition, but does not carry the information that matters, which in this case is the standard catchphrase of the characters to which the label applies. (And even then, these days the quote is used to seem vaguely retro)

    "DUR HUR, PEOPLE WHO ARE ENTERTAINED BY DIFFERENT THINGS THAN ME SHOULD NEVER POST THEM ON THE INTERNET"

    No one is forcing you to read the thread.



  • @Magus said:

    Which ones?

    Ooookayy...

    @Magus said:

    So what's the information that matters?

    @Magus said:

    This just makes less and less sense to me, I'm afraid.



  • @Magus said:

    DUR HUR (snip - mobilediscoquoting)

    My, my, you're defending that joke like it's your Motherland.

    We get it. There's just nothing funny in it.

    This one.

    See above.

    My mind is failing me in reaching a particular word. It's like stereotype and retro and stuff. Something that has been used so many times that it's now a joke.Cliche

    Cool? You've stated your opinion. And stated it. And stated it. And stated it.



  • I'll just satisfy myself by being happy that you're having fun.

  • @Magus said:

    Serves you right for making a joke and explaining it. And explaining it. And explaining it.

    Look, you made a joke, and got crickets chirping. It happens to the best of us. The thing is that we, humor professionals and affictionados, just accept the fact and move on with it, instead of trying to convince people it was, in fact, hilarious.

    But see, you've misunderstood nearly everything about this thread. The OP, when read by a small number of people on this forum, is entertaining. I'd invite similar quotes that conform to popular tropes. But you have forced it to be about the fact that you don't care. Why is this so important to you?

  • What's the point of asking me to cite people you hate? That won't be 'valid' in your world.



  • I hate everybody. It's not like I did it for you, idiot!

    I just want evidence that there is one person on this world, other than you, who finds this joke funny.

    I was amused. Briefly. I didn't think it was worth a whole new thread, but it got a brief smile before I moved on with my day.



  • @Magus said:

    I fight for preservation of humor.

    Also, if you make a joke, it doesn't mean everybody familiar with the subject matter will laugh at it. Conversely, not everybody who doesn't laugh at your joke despises the subject matter.

    Sometimes a bad joke is just a bad joke.



  • @Magus said:

    But see, you've misunderstood nearly everything about this thread.

    Ah, something we can all agree on!



  • @Yamikuronue said:

    All I was looking for. But apparently I lose my Making Mildly Humorous Comments license.



  • You should have done something like saying generic PC hardware is hardware designed for a specific OS, the morons here lap that shit up.



  • What I'd be interested in seeing is a quote by a yandere developer.



  • @Magus said:

    For taking 30 posts to agressively defend a throwaway joke, yes. Effective immediately.

    Please clean out your desk, hand me your badge and never make any attempt at mildly humorous comments again.



  • This post is deleted!


  • Interesting collection of phrases (sorry for the lack of attribution):

    unuseful comments
    pimple-faced anime fans
    unplanned abomination
    Tsundere (ツンデレ)
    initially cold and even hostile towards another person
    variation on the catchphrase
    reality get in the way of comedy
    catchphrase of the characters
    common quote
    quoted definition
    The definition stated above is a definition
    information that matters
    vaguely retro
    defending that joke like it's your Motherland
    accept the fact and move on with it
    quotes that conform to popular tropes

    After reading those, I don't think any of them mean what I thought they meant.



  • @blakeyrat said:

    Fail. No bots or cyberparts here.



  • Idk, I've run across the word ‘tsundere’ before, probably on tvtropes, and I'd say it fits pretty well. Like, they're calling it an abomination there, in the bash script that's called from the database server's cron, but then on the other side, there's TODOs all scattered thru like ‘this just needs a bit of love’, as if they expect anybody to do anything more than the bare minimum to keep it alive.



  • :whoosh:



  • So in order to have a yandere developer, you would require someone who loves their codebase beyond all else, and is deep inside it at every possible moment, and will murder anyone they believe to have slighted it in any way or looked at it in a way they disapprove of.

    I think... Jeff might be on the way.

    Does that make them at least 50% more expensive than their synthesised equivalents?

    Only if they're sufficiently diluted.

    Let's never mention it again.

    Aaaah now you made it even worse .. .now it's never going to die

    And by posting I make my own prediction come true



  • Well, I haven't thought of any more stereotypes, so unless we all keep posting here (50/50) it will die out soon enough.


  • area_deu

    Honestly, I don't see the tsundere-ness of the post quoted in the OP.

    I think you're just desperately trying to find anime in a not-really-anime place.


  • area_deu

    And I watched the first 6 seasons of Urusei Yatsura - I know well enough what the different *dere types are.
