Why do the call it the Xbox 360

Wiis, PlayStations, iPads, blogging platforms, Facebook and anything else worthy of buzz in the digital world.

Okay, so you appear to understand that turning 360 degrees in front of something will not result in that thing being behind you. So why turn around at all? And why walk away backwards?

WHY STRETCH SO FAR FOR SUCH A LAMEASS JOKE?

You may be onto something here! Jacko kicks his foot out, spins 360 on a toe, and moonwalks backwards!

That's it!

Q: Why did they call it the Xbox 360?

A: Michael Jackson!

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Good points, and well-made at that!

I thought it was especially cutting when you, who goes by the name of "anon," put my foroniker in digital finger-quotes.

Is there a filter translating anon's intended comments into something else? Is anyone else reading this?

Thank you, lysander, your comment tipped me toward trying to understand anon in net-meme terms.

Congratulations, anon. You know a video game nerd meme that I don't know, and have used it to somehow make me....not as......cool....as..........you?

I'm still not getting it.

Y'know, maybe not.

I think it's time for my 1980° departure (I'm on a spinny chair--that's an exit with flourish!).

My God. I've said nothing but gibberish this whole thread, yet you've found a way to argue with me. This is the most amazing thing I've ever seen, I mean I could just make a thread called "saldjfhaljshfdljHL@HL@JHlasfasf" and you would take it as an insult against yourself and try and to convince me that it doesn't make sense.

The punch line of the joke isn't "because you when you see it, you turn 360 degrees and walk away", that would be retarded. The punch line is the inevitable backlash I receive by people that are so aggressively eager to correct me.
