Is he lame? = Does he suck?

So, starting today, our little Does he suck? poll will be included in the Thursday Weekend sections of The Appleton Post-Crescent and Oshkosh Northwestern. However, in the case of The P-C at least, the print version is called Is he lame? Apparently, suck is a bad word in some quarters. We don't like to put bad words in the print edition. The Web, however, is an open sewer. Enjoy!

I'm glad for the possible infusion of voters, because the turnout thus far is pretty disappointing. Come on, people! We are debating suckitude here! Get your heads in the game.

"Is he lame?"

Isn't this sort of like Nirvana's "Rape Me" getting changed to "Waif Me" at Wal-Mart?

You don't want to offend the handicapped. Maybe...

"Is he a goofball?"

how silly.

maybe you should run a contest for a BETTER alternative to suck/not suck. I nominate:

"retarded/not retarded." with retarded being a good thing.


"duh/no duh."


"your mom/my mom."

bites, blows, stinks, rots, reeks,

Hmmm... it is actually tough to think of synonyms that are also active voice verbs like sucks. Strunk and White have your back on your use of sucks.

It is kind of like a verdict, no?
How about guilty/not guilty of crimes against the popular culture? Or you could go postive verb/not positive verb... or does that lose the original critical vibe of sucks/doesn't suck?

"your mom/my mom"

That's classic.

P.S. I still have a raging debate going on inside my head over Kanye's worth.
