Monsters’ Ball: The Week’s Top Comments

What a week. Tony. Paula. Instagram. North. It’s all a bit much to take in, I’m sure. Luckily we have the weekend to decompress. What are you guys doing? Anything fun? World War Z? JK. That movie. Why does a big budget action-adventure summer movie starring Brad Pitt feel like such a CHORE? Especially the week after Man of Steel, I mean, Jeburs H. Crimbus! It’s gonna be OK, summer movies. Hang in there, buddies. Seriously, though, what are you guys doing? Why won’t anyone tell me what they are doing? I don’t get invited to fun parties all the time, I’m used to it, just tell me!

After the jump, the five Highest Rated comments, as voted on by you, the Lowest Rated comment, the winner of the The French Press Of Bel-Air Caption Contest, and the Editor’s and Associate Editor’s Choices.

[Assoc. Ed. Note: “What if she’s right?” That’s what I’m going to ask for on my tombstone. “Right about what?!” people will think when they pass by. Spoooooky! Good job, guys! Have a nice weekend!]

His Dawn of the Dead remake is a piece of garbage.

  catweazle | 10:17am Score:7

So, I consider my “I woke up with a bat flying around my bedroom and had to get a full course of rabies shots in case it bit me in my sleep” story to be one of my best anecdotes, but I recently told it to someone who was totally unimpressed and thought I was silly for getting the shots because I guess when she was a kid there were bats everywhere all the time (she didn’t say, but I assume she grew up in hell?). Maybe she’s the one who made this video.
