Monsters’ Ball: The Week’s Best Comments

This week feels hard-earned. Do you feel like you earned this week? If you don’t, there’s still just a little bit of time. You should get out there and earn it. The rest of us will wait, but if you don’t mind, we’re going to take our shoes off and put our feet up because good GOD with this week already. While you’re out earning your week, would you mind picking up some snacks? Thanks. Anything is fine, just something to nibble on before dinner. Also bring dinner. And some cocktails. And wine. A bottle of sparkling grape juice for people who don’t drink would be polite and it’s a nice way to make things seem fancy. Or maybe not, actually. I’m not sure! One time I had a party and I got sparkling apple juice for people who didn’t drink, and they had a little bit, but I think they were the ones being polite and the reality is maybe having sparkling juice for people who don’t drink is kind of condescending or weird. Forget the juice. Just bring snacks, dinner, cocktails, wine, a sleep mask, a DVD to watch, a warm bath, and a gun. LET’S MAKE THIS THE BEST WEEKEND EVER! We earned it or are in the process of earning it!

After the jump, the five Highest Rated comments, as voted on by you, the Lowest Rated comment, the winner of the A Thousand Words On RottenTomatoes Caption Contest, and the Editor’s and Associate Editor’s Choice.

Grimes, stop trying to tell Carl that Dale’s death wasn’t his fault. Because…um…guess what? IT WAS TOTALLY HIS FAULT.

So, why do you guys watch this show and spend so much time writing about and analyzing it if you hate it so much?

[Ed. Note: It’s nice to know that it’s 2012 and we are still having to answer this question. BECAUSE THAT IS HOW WE PAY THE RENT, DUMMY! Also, those recaps are filled with GREAT JOKES! It would be one thing if it was just 5,000 earnest words about why the show is not enjoyable and we regret having watched every second of it. But it’s a comedy routine, buddy! Also, if you want to read a website about how much someone likes something and thinks it’s so great and such a good use of their time and energy, you will have to write it yourself, because that’s not actually a thing that exists. (Because no one would read it. Because who cares.) Thanks for reading!]
