Monsters’ Ball: The Week’s Best Comments

Let’s not even talk about the Dane Cook thing, right? Because that thing is a very bad and dumb thing. It’s hard enough out there for a shrimp without that noise. Also, if you are going to try and walk some line that to be honest doesn’t even need to be walking and definitely isn’t as thin as you’re going to pretend it is when you get yelled at, like the line is actually pretty solid and boldly visible, but if you are going to walk that line at least make sure that your premise makes sense in the first place and isn’t just contrarian nonsense that you plucked out of thin air. But like I said, let’s not even talk about it. It’s summer! Easy breezy! Have a lemonade or an ice cream cone or both. And always get that sweet, sweet Vitamin D.

After the jump, the five Highest Rated comments, as voted on by you, the Lowest Rated comment, the winner of the The Soup Nazi Soup Truck Caption Contest, and the Editor’s and Associate Editor’s Choice.

#1 An American Patriot | Jul 23rd Score:79

THAT TRAGEDY was sad as shit BUT WAS the work of A TOTALLY CRAZY motherfucker and had NOTHING TO DO with the actual FILM we were all watching. THERE’S PLENTY OF other places to talk about IT AND GIVE that asshole the attention HE WANTS, but I don’t think IT WAS NECESSARY for Gabe to bring it UP OR ANYTHING.

This Week’s Caption Contest Winner

hotspur | Jul 24th Score:28

True story: I worked on a sitcom years ago, and the guy who played the Soup Nazi was a guest star one episode. He played a cab driver with one line. And all week he just hung out on the set to watch. He really just seemed to like being there, and I talked to him quite a bit. He was genuinely the nicest guy ever. And yeah, he alluded to needing the money. As I recall, he said being the Soup Nazi was great, because as an actor you want to do something that really stands out and is memorable and that people quote. But also that it was dubious, because he got stuck playing bit parts where his job was to say one line in a fake accent. And apparently he felt at risk in terms of putting food on his family — as I recall he said he was fine at the moment but not secure. Really, he was about the nicest, most low-key, most honest guy you’d ever meet. You just wanted him to do well.
