What Are the Funniest Comments on the Forum?

I am sure plenty of users have gotten a laugh or two from some comments on the iNaturalist Forum. However, I have noticed that there is no topic to aggregate the hilarity. So, let me start the chain of laughs (also, make sure the comments are appropriate) …

For me, the funniest comment comes from Accuracy circle can be dragged separately from the pin when editing an observation’s location, where I noticed that @bouteloua made comment about the ludicrous number of decimal places for the Accuracy Circle.

And then conversation went like this…

A couple of days ago there was a glitch, and people were unable to access ‘Identification’ etc. ( iNat down? Pages all incomplete - General - iNaturalist Community Forum)

Thank you for sharing this intyrely_eco! And to whoever wrote it. Had to put my next mouthful of dinner on hold until I was sure I wasnt going to start laughing uncontrollably again. And thanks for the thread…worth it for this one alone!


If observations count, this one should be here - Spotted Tussock Moth (Lophocampa maculata) from Green Moss Ln, Regina, SK, CA on August 27, 2018 at 11:32 AM by Hannah Calibaba · iNaturalist.ca


No, actually I thought it was just beginning, but…,as I said…worth it for that one alone!

@gcsnelling owns 70% of that setup comment and punchline. Credit where it’s due.

Thanks. I had a look at his profile then a thread about names linked to it, but didn’t come across this exchange.

This was pretty funny.


Let’s not overlook this thread:
Nature inspired comics
