OK, saying “dumb” and doing the college degree dig was unkind, but the gist is correct.

Running an arts organization requires deep and specific knowledge of art history and expertise in shepherding a non-profit group. It’s not controversial to say that starring in Benjamin Button provides you with none of that.

Brad loves art. I love art, too! We should not be on the MOCA board.

He should keep writing checks and show up for the fundraiser cocktails as an enticement to other donors. This is not controversial.

The current trend of disregarding experts is aggravating to me. Having access to Web MD doesn’t make me a fucking doctor. Liking art doesn’t make you a curator. Come on, guys!

I heard the blogs be in great debates all the time

About who’s the best MC — Stu, Patrick M, and werttrew

FLW, Winwood, chris trash, the rest of y’all

New monsters just new monsters, don’t get involved

And I ain’t rockin’ no more Delahaye shit

Kelly and ‘More Sand,’ this is Conaboy autonomous

I’m usually homeboys with the same monsters I’m jokin’ wit

But this is Videogum and them monsters should know what time it is

And that goes for neverabadidea, art dork, koko

manners, garbitrary, old man fatima, specialk

nastyemu, caemen pistaccio, steph, Mac Miller

I got love for you all but I’m tryna murder you monsters

Tryna make sure the Ball never heard of you monsters

Not one more best caption or comment from you monsters

[Ed. Note: Congratulations on your win, catweazle! And congratulations on the most enjoyable version of a joke about that verse that I have ever seen, stu! And congratulations to everyone else for being in the top five. Have an extra drink tonight and quietly tell your significant other that you deserve it, so it’s fine.]

my buddy once wrote a test article for the onion and they turned it down, and that was way better than this….

It was his involvement in another school club that truly hinted at his future role.
