Sam Parker received a "Fail" badge on May 29 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.
Sam Parker received an "LOL" badge on Apr 24 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.
