Monsters’ Ball: The Week’s Best Comments

I don’t know, guys. There was just something about this week that seemed a little off to me. Did you all feel that? Like something was missing? I’ve been thinking about it for a while but I can’t really put my finger on what it was. Well, whatever. It was a fun week anyway! Can’t wait to see you back here next week when things will go from feeling like something is missing to feeling like something is back and better that/just as good as ever, thank goodness. Yay! HAVE A FUN WEEKEND!

After the jump, the five Highest Rated comments, as voted on by you, the Lowest Rated comment, the winner of the Cute Kid Reacting To Se7en Caption Contest, and the Associate Editor’s Choice.


This Week’s Highest Rated Comments

#4 Kate | Oct 6th Score:49

We did the stealth Disneyworld trip when Kelly was a little monster. To explain the suitcases I told the kids we were going to Hershey Park. I woke Kelly’s little brother very early that day by saying “Wake up! We’re going on an airplane to Disneyworld right now!” He was furious that Hershey Park was off.

why did Piers have to ask about a phone call he was most likely listening to when it happened?

[Assoc. Ed. Note: This is a great top five, guys. Really, really great. First of all, More Sand is basically my favorite thing on the planet. Great job, Chris Trash, and great job to everyone who continues to keep More Sand alive. You’re all doing the Lord’s work. Second of all, my mom is in here telling a family story, which is very weird. Third of all, the rest of the comments are very good. Fantastic.]

#1 guiltyb0b | Sep 30th Score:-26
my sick mind expected her to look at that mashed up fuck blob of an arm and be all like,”What the fuck is this?!!!”

Then I realized that she was deaf and not blind.

[Assoc. Ed. Note: Hahah, guys, remember when guiltybob went a little crazy? He has since apologized, so it’s water under the bridge at this point, but the unfortunate thing is that he had like all of the top five lowest rated comments this week. Hahah, jeeze. I guess let’s take a moment and be grateful that for the most part the comments section of Videogum is a safe, fun place full of smart, funny, and level-headed people who are all very nice and not mean. It’s a very special thing and I love it a lot. Great job all of you.]

This Week’s Associate Editor’s Choice

  la la landon | Oct 4th Score:4

this newest season is definitely the best one.

Posted in: Will A Money Dispute Put An End To The Simpsons?

[Assoc. Ed. Note: Hahah. I love this comment because it was said pretty much just randomly in the Simpsons post, and some of my favorite kind of jokes to make in real life are stupid jokes that only serve to slightly annoy someone because they know you’re kind of trying to upset them but also that you’re doing it in the laziest way you possibly can. Like if someone asks you what your favorite Woody Allen movie is and you say, “Any of the new ones.” Always hilarious. Great comment. Great week. Great weekend.]
