Far more gratifying when others point out your handiwork.
Perhaps that's because amusing ourselves is far easier than amusing others.

That said, I think that collectively, we should appreciate when reviewers amuse us, and post their work in this thread more often... every once in a while, you come across something that makes you chuckle.

Of course, I'm guilty of this myself...

To avoid being gauche a 3rd time, I specifically won't reference the instances where I did.

From TheValkyrieKid's review of Lloyd Park:

The underbrush was mostly prickly with blackberry bushes. On the plus side, you could forage for blackberries while playing.

I picked that up at Highland. The first time I played there, I left with questions. There was a paved road with curbs you shoot over, but the road is closed. Why? There is something that looks like a bridge abutment in the middle of nowhere. What was that for? There are the guts of benches with no boards on them in a secluded area. What used to be there? Obviously at some point it wasn't so secluded. I left wondering what the history of that park was.

Since then I've come cross four or five parks that had something I found interesting about the history of the site, so I throw that in. It has nothing to do with disc golf or the course that is there now, so it's questionable what the value is. I just figure I can't be the only person who finds that stuff interesting.

I still can't figure out Highland. Both Highland and West Park are really old parks with a lot of history, and there are bits and pieces out there. I just can't connect the dots on either park to really feel like I understand the history of the places.

I do a pretty good job of that myself not just in reviews but in conversation too. If I only had a dollar for every time I said nervously, "Ummm yeah...That sounded a lot funnier on the inside...."
