Monsters’ Ball: The Week’s Best Comments

Wow, what an exciting week we’ve had! I’d like to again thank Caroline Creaghead, Dave Hill, Starlee Kine, Dave Holmes, and Andrew Ti for their guest editing this week. Unselfishly because their writing was wonderful and funny and smart and fresh and just such a TREAT!, and selfishly because I am a huge fan of all of them and it is crazy to me that I got a day to write along side each of them. (And, to be honest, it is also still crazy to me that I otherwise get to write alongside Gabe, whom I am also a big fan of.) (I’m also a fan of all of the commenters.) (And I’d also like to thank bug spray and air conditioning.) WHAT A WORLD! But it has been a very fun and exciting week. I hope you enjoyed it. I’m SURE that you did, but I also hope that you did. So. Have a nice weekend! See you back here on Monday!

After the jump, the five Highest Rated comments, as voted on by you, the Lowest Rated comment, the winner of the Boy Dancing To “Vogue” At His Bar Mitzvah Caption Contest, and the Associate Editor’s Choice.

The Kristen Stewart backlash is insane. Yes, she was an asshole, but I argue that the married actor was the much bigger asshole, and if he is kept on the Snow White sequel, someone in hollywood is getting a fart mailed to them.

I personally believe that U.S. Americans are unable to locate Europe because some people out there in our nation don’t have maps, and I believe that our education like such as in South Africa and The Iraq, everywhere like such as, and I believe that they should, our education over HERE in the U.S. should help the U.S., or should help South Africa and should help The Iraq and the Asian countries, so we will be able to build up our future, for our children. Whether that future is in 1800 or now, facetaco.

[Assoc. Ed. Note: BOOM! Gotcha Cronenberg, you big old jerk. Great job this week, everybody.
