Monsters’ Ball: The Week’s Best Comments

This was actually a pretty big week! We had the first presidential debate of 2012. Krispy Kreme appeared on Tosh.0. We finally asked the question: what IS Katherine Chloe Cahoon? Courtney Stodden made her reality TV debut. The Insider changed its name to omg Now!. The Peanuts turned 60. Scott Stapp finally broke his LEGENDARY silence about his political endorsement. And Seth MacFarlane was announced as the host of the 65th annual Academy Awards. That’s a lot! Did we miss anything? Did anything else incredibly meaningful and important happen this week? Well now we will never know. Those who ignore history are doomed to repeat it, so let’s just ignore it and catch it on the second go around!

After the jump, the five Highest Rated comments, as voted on by you, the Lowest Rated comment, the winner of the Don Draper Goofin’ On His iPhone Caption Contest, and the Editor’s and Associate Editor’s Choice.

lol remember the last time we went with the guy who seemed more affable on television over the guy who was by almost any measure the more qualified candidate and we ended up with a nightmare hellworld for eight years lol

Maybe Daniel Tosh misread ‘King of Raps’.

This is amazing. I don’t understand how she can be a real, living, breathing person in this world, but the fact that she is is kind of incredible.

Posted in: It Is Time To Ask The Question: What Is Katherine Chloe Cahoon?

[Assoc. Ed. Note: I somehow spent, like, 500 hours watching KCC videos last night and I still just cannot believe that person. Incredible.]
