    That means I win. I’ll be downloading that .jpg if you don’t mind…

  2. Dev says:

    As a regular reader, I genuinely hope SSD doesn’t consider re-shutting the comments due to a few idiots that spout off BS in the comments section. Although I don’t really have much to contribute knowledge or anecdote wise, I’ve learnt a lot via productive conversations in the comments box.

    So… where is the Internet Pizza Box Award?

  4. Tim says:

    Myyyyyyyyyyyy precious….

    (Do you know how awesome that would be and the looks I’d get wearing it around the office or having it framed by my desk at work)

  5. John Smith says:

    I’ll second what Dev wrote: I get a lot out of the conversations that carry on after the initial publication (post). The fluff is easy to identify…and ignore.

  6. Reverend says:

    Gecko45 would approve.

  7. Matt F says:

    What are the standards? What differentiates Internet Expert from Internet Marksman and Sharpshooter?

  8. Darren says:

    I think the Award should go to Fanboy SSD themselves. They have much to say about nothing most of the time.

  9. Trajan says:

    What’s the history on the US Army marksmanship badges anyway? Why the Iron Cross?

  10. Charlie says:

    So who do we pay, or like the man said, steal the jpg and find a 3d printer?

    • Erik says:

      If you are going to steal it and use a 3D printer, make sure that the owner of said printer isn’t paying any royalties…..

    Will this be done on the pop-up internet range or some bullshit paper target?

  12. TMedina says:

    Freaking awesome. Do I have to start off as a marksman and work my way up, or just jump straight to expert troll?

  13. Chris Adams says:

    I dunno. i kinda think there should be a lightning bolt on there somewhere. Otherwise awesome. I would wear one in the real world at shows if you ever get them made – right alongside my beloved “Sex Dwarf” tab.

    i’m sure it will only take a few days for knock-off “keep calm and return fire, internet expert” t-shirts to be available for sale somewhere.

  15. Desert Lizard says:

    This site is a gem. There’s no other one like it on the whole interweb.

  16. John says:

    Is this another career boxchecking thing? I mean, if you use all the right internet buzzwords, can you fail more spectacularly than someone with legit fail skills?

    Look, I’m just worried that internet trolls will pervert the merit system and take away achievement from the real idiots.

  17. Jbgleason says:

    Will high ranking personnel who have not previously used the Internet log on for a brief moment, make one or two comments and then retreat to the safety of their office where they will then claim a right to the badge?

  18. S1 says:

    So, can we get that subdued for Kryptek, multicam, and scorpion? PVC or embroidered? Maybe it can be made to match the winner’s couch.

    Holding out for a Comment Action Badge.

    No less funny than it was the other day 😉
