Emmylou Cakehead received an "Ew" badge on Sep 15 because their post was, frankly, disgusting. It's important to have a little gross stuff in your life every now and then. Builds character or something.
Emmylou Cakehead received an "LOL" badge on Sep 15 because their post made people laugh. Out loud. Not literally. Why do we say LOL when we don't mean it? That's one for the philosophers, I guess. Anyway, point being, their post was funny. That should have been a way easier point to make than it was.
