Mike Hayes received a "Fail" badge on Sep 15 because their post was full of fail. Like, I mean, the post itself was good. Great even. But the content was, like, kind of "faily." You know? Yeah, I don't really know either.
Mike Hayes 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.
Mike Hayes received a Classic badge on Sep 15 because everyone was like, "Old!" but, like, it also did really well and got shared a bunch and was totally worth posting and what I am saying is, why does everyone get their panties in such a big old bunch when they see something on the Internet that they maybe have seen before instead of just being like, "Oh, I have seen this thing before. No big deal."? Not everyone has seen that thing you saw, dude. A lot of people really appreciated being made aware of this thing and shared it with their friends, which is why it earned a badge in the first place. Whoa, that turned into kind of a rant. Aaaaaaaaaaaaaanyway ....
Mike Hayes earned a "Facepalm" badge on May 15 because, well, facepalm. "Facepalm" is what you say when someone does something unbelievably stupid like trying to explain a pretty common piece of Internet terminology to a bunch of people on the Internet.
