Monsters’ Ball: The Week’s Best Comments

Kelly Conaboy | May 4, 2012 - 5:30 pm

Cinco de Mayooooooooooo! Right? I mean technically, in terms of HOLIDAYS, today is “May the fourth be with you.” But, how lucky we are, we have another holiday right after the holiday of “May the fourth be with you”! CINCO DE MAYO! Do you guys have any fun Cinco de Mayo plans for tomorrow? Are you going to drink a margarita? Wear a sombrero? Only have a vague idea of what you’re celebrating? Make some guacamole? (MAKE some, and definitely not buy it, because any guacamole you can buy pre-made is 100% definitely for sure going to be terrible?) Great. Sounds good. I am not going to be celebrating Cinco de Mayo because it is a friend’s birthday. How dare they, right? How dare they. Also I guess it is Kentucky Derby Day? LOTS of holidays to celebrate this weekend. I’m glad you could hear about them here, before you went off into your weekend having no idea of any of it. Have fun! Be safe! See you back here next week!

You guys, I feel like Ser Davos could have worked just a little bit harder when he was trying to warn Stannis about Melisandre. How did he not just scream “I saw a shadow monster come out of her pussy and I’m pretty sure it murdered your brother!”

[Assoc. Ed. Note: Good catch, concert_addict! You’re right about that being creepy, werttrew! Good job everyone else!

If you’re reading this now and you’re a new commenter, HELLO! YOU ARE NICE TO SEE! STAY A WHILE!]

This Week’s Lowest Rated Comment

#1 facetaco | Apr 27th Score:-9
Technically, yes, but headlines frequently use commas incorrectly for the sake of brevity, which can lead to confusion when they are used correctly.

[Assoc. Ed. Note: (In response to this.) C’mon, Facetaco. This — if the headline had said “A Picture Of Zooey Deschanel Without Makeup On, Asshole” — definitely would NOT have been one of those cases you’re talking about. That would be as if a headline said “A Picture Of Zooey Deschanel Without Makeup On, Face.” Even if a headline DID say that, I’d be as BOLD as to say that the conclusion based on its phrasing would be that she didn’t have either makeup on OR a face. Not that she didn’t have makeup on her face. Please feel free to never discuss anything else but this particular grammatical issue in the comments ever again. Very exciting. So sad I missed it when it happened last Friday.]

To be fair, if the porn can be described as something both living and dead, I’d be a little worried too.
