Big things are happening on TV Tropes! New admins, new designs, fewer ads, mobile versions, beta testing opportunities, thematic discovery engine, fun trope tools and toys, and much more - Learn how to help here and discuss here.
These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
Awesome Moments: He once scared Uwe Boll out of a boxing match after telling him he practiced Muay Thai and Jujutsu, and that he's 6'3. He wasn't kidding.
The main image on his website shows him posing with Mr. T.
And Sean's 100th-article retrospective has a shot of him having a beer with Uwe Boll! Seanbaby notes that Boll didn't even try to take a swing at him.
"Once, while I was working as a writer for some now-cancelled MTV cartoon, the topic of Phil Collins came up. Another writer at the table asked, 'What does 'Su-Su-Sudio' even mean?' And, as I'd waited for my entire life, I responded with the best Phil Collins joke I've ever written: "That's what a normal song sounds like when you sing it with balls in your mouth."
How about when he reviewed Custer's Revenge:
Custer: "Gentlemen, you are the bravest squadron of men it has ever been this Southerner's privilege to serve with. And you will need that bravery today, as your orders are to remove my pants and underpants. I will then attempt to force sex on an Indian girl under heavy enemy fire. Are there any questions?" Custer's Military Adviser: "Yes, general. Several."
Anytime he takes on Gregory J.P. Godek and his awful romantic advice books. This basically sums it up:
Godek's Advice: Pretend you're vacationing foreigners who don't speak English. Have fun asking directions and ordering in restaurants while pretending not to understand English. Seanbaby: Let me tell you about the hatred I have for Godek. He writes like it's the side effect of a stroke. He is so witless and humorless that 83 of his puns have charged him with rape. When he and his wife get naked, they're more pizza than flesh and that's not even why birds try to kill them. My hate for him is so personal, so vivid... and I earned that sweet hate over the course of a dozen of his fucking dumbass books. So I'm especially pissed off that there's a waiter out there watching him pretend to be a German tourist, and in five seconds he'll hate Godek more than I ever can.
Seanbaby's introduction to the absymal NES game Total Recall (1990) by Acclaim on Broken Pixels:
(in exaggerated Arnold-esque Austrian accent) "AHM RANDY QUAID BY ACCLAIM! GET ME TO MAHS, AHM RANDY QUAID!"
Seinfeld Is Unfunny: At least a few Cracked.com readers accused Sean of ripping off other writers on the site, even though Seanbaby has been funny on the internet since 1997, and many of those said writers openly cite him as their chief inspiration.
Squick: In his article about living on a farm, he describes milking a cow as feeling like you're "squeezing hot snot out of a fat woman's flaccid penis."
