Monsters’ Ball: The Week’s Top Comments

Ahh, and so ends another week in paradise. I hope that when we come back next week — on Tuesday! — we’ll come back to a world that doesn’t focus so much on Shia LaBeouf or the Gosselins, and a world in which a purportedly feminist blog doesn’t throw away the last of its good graces on an odd pageview gamble against another woman. We’ll see! You never know what the world might bring. FINGERS X’D! We’ll see you on the other side, in any case. On Tuesday, like we said. We won’t be here on Monday. Love you, byeee.

After the jump, the five Highest Rated comments, as voted on by you, the Lowest Rated comment, the winner of the Benedict Cumberbatch And Aaron Paul In A Photograph Together Caption Contest, and the Editor’s Choice.

It’s fun to imagine that the one hot dog just scored the game-winning touchdown and is being carried off the field in triumph by his teammates. It’s also fun to imagine eating a bunch of hot dogs.
