#2 Son of Gabe | Apr 29th Score:127

More on the bullying: after listening to my fellow monsters and a little soul searching I came out to a select group of friends yesterday. While all were very surprised, they were even more understanding. I feel like such a weight has been lifted off my chest and I feel more confident now than I have in years, I’d just like to thank you guys for encouraging me.

#1 werttrew | Apr 29th Score:141

Hey monsters! Those of you who follow me on Twitter or Facebook already know, but as of yesterday, I’m now a father! Mom and baby are doing great. Elizabeth Rose was born April 28 at 2:34 p.m. weighing 6 lbs, 10 oz and was 20.5 inches long.

Birth is terribly strange. There is something primal and alien and weird about how this tiny person, frantically waving her blue hands covered in red slime, slid headfirst from a groin into a crowd of smiling strangers. I could smell her being born–she smelled of blood and something else, sweet and anciently familiar. The baby was tethered to mother by a gnarly gray cord, which her happy weeping father cut. Then she bawled and bawled and people vigorously rubbed her down with rough towels and handed her to a beaming mother. Strange and wonderful. I don’t know if I’m making sense. I’ve slept six hours in three days.

[Ed. note: Last week’s Monsters’ Ball comment thread was really something special. Congratulations, werttrew. Congratulations, Son Of Gabe. Congratulations, EVERYONE. Maybe I’m wrong, but I felt like it had been awhile since the community had really embraced itself, and it’s always nice to see. No joke. LOL. No joke, though.]

This Week’s Lowest Rated Comment

[Ed. note: Good one, teacherman. Also, close call, teacherman. You came very close to having your IP address banned by pretending to be someone being mean to you. Guys, please don’t make up a whole string of fake commenter profiles. It’s against the rules, it’s annoying to monitor, and it will result in you getting kicked off the site, even if it was just a silly fun joke. Thanks!]

This Week’s Editor’s Choice

Polythene Pam | May 2nd Score:75

“They were planning to bring him into the US alive, yeah, no it’s true, but, heh, on the flight over he was killed by the airline food.”

Posted in: Predicting Tonight’s Terrible Jay Leno Monologue Jokes

[Ed. note: This is a very good (very bad) impersonation of a Jay Leno joke about the death of Osama Bin Laden. Oh, sorry, SPOILER ALERT Osama Bin Laden is dead. How does it feel to get out of that coma?! (Badump. FRIDAY!)]
