No comment.

You’ve heard people say it, you’ve probably said it yourself. The witty reply that we all love to use, “No comment.”

If only these no-comment people would realize how stupid they really sound. Don’t they realize that by saying “no comment” they really are, in fact, making a comment? Or perhaps the words “no comment” are really referring to the actual value that their comment holds–none, zero, zilch.

But regardless of this, I still stand to believe that the comment “no comment” is one of the best non-comment comments worth commenting. It blatantly acknowledges the lack of content in one’s own comment while simultaneously and shamelessly ridiculing the fact that the commentee’s content is more worthless than your own comment-less comment (try saying that five times fast).

Some good examples of proper usage would be:

I can pwn you in tetris any day.

No comment.

I ate an ant once…they taste like they smell.

No comment.

The comment “no comment” is one of the best non-comment comments worth commenting.

  1. People also use the phrase when they have something to say, but know that they’re better off not saying it. This isn’t because their comment has no content, but rather because it would get them or someone else in trouble if they made their statement. I know a friend of mine uses the phrase when she doesn’t want to get involved in something (often an argument between two other people) because siding with someone would drag her into the argument.

  2. ^ditto. Another version of “no comment” is the popular “…”.

    (Sometimes, though, I just go ahead and say it and have a big ol’ fight or misunderstanding.)
