Monsters’ Ball: The Week’s Best Comments

By Kelly Conaboy / January 27, 2012 - 5:45 pm

Hi guys! It’s Kelly. How are you? I hope you all had a pretty good week! Was anyone nominated for any Academy Awards? Congrats if yes. Speaking of the Academy Awards, the results of the “Who Do U Wanna Hang Out W/ At Sundance?very smart poll ARE IN! Turns out an overwhelming percentage of you want to hang out with Kirsten Dunst almost kissing Lizzy Caplan? EVEN WHEN you were given the opportunity to choose to hang out with KERR SMITH? From Dawson’s Creek?! Whatever, you guys. A close (not close) second and third were “Glasses of Stella Artois” and “Late Night Lounge Just By Yourself,” which I totally understand. See you at next year’s Sundance (blog post)! Have a good weekend! XOXO!

After the jump, the five Highest Rated comments, as voted on by you, the Lowest Rated comment, the winner of the Mel Gibson Is Just A Regular Citizen On A Jury Contest, and the Editor’s and Associate Editor’s Choice.

[Assoc. Ed. Note: Great job, everybody! VERY political this week. All about the issues. The top comments from Videogum's top issue-minds-commenters, and OTHER dumb things for me to say. You are all great! I hope your Friday is FULL of celebrating your top-rated comment, and your weekend is full of rest.]

It doesn’t interfere with his ability to do anything. But it DOES make me see him as not taking his position as seriously as he should.

Also, maybe relaaaax, Chuck Kinbote.

[Assoc. Ed. Note: Gabe and everybody else have already had their say about this comment. So I think we can let it rest there? Right? Facetaco, you see that milk joke Obama made? Did that change your mind? #milkjoke2012]

This Week’s Caption Contest Winner

Dr. Feelgood | Jan 24th Score:37

Mel, it’s “yes, your honor,” not “sure thing, sugartits.”

[Ed. Note: Congratulations, Dr. Feelgood! You earned it.]

This Week’s Associate Editor’s Choice

Trina Werner | Jan 25th Score:-2
I already hung out with a mustached Micheal Cera, so this question doesn’t really apply to me. In fact I complimented him on it. “I didn’t recognize you at first with the new stache, I like it” He is the farthest thing from all of his awkward characters. Very laid back and amazingly cool.
Posted in: Who Do U Wanna Hang Out W/ At Sundance?

[Assoc. Ed. Note: Very laid back and AMAZINGLY COOL comment! Oh my goodness. I cannot tell you how many times I've gone back and read this comment this week when I needed a quick happiness boost. I think we should maybe shut Monsters' Ball down, yes? Once you have THE BEST COMMENT, why waste time celebrating anything less? Right? RIP Monsters' Ball. You're perfect, Trina. Never change. And please tell Michael Cera I say hello.]

“If I was on that 5 yard line with my team, it wouldn’t have went down like it did. There would have been a lot of stiff-paws in that rush and then me saying, ‘OK, we’re going to land in the end-zone safely, don’t worry.’” – Marky Bark

[Ed. Note: I'm not saying that a parodic variation on the now classic Mark Wahlberg quote is a shoe-in for Editor's Choice. This will probably be the last one. But it is a shoe-in for always making me LAFF. Also, the Puppy Bowl, you guys. Get psyched!]
