Monsters’ Ball: The Week’s Best Comments

For the past couple of days, I have been at a rented vacation home with my family along the shores of one of America’s premiere lakes. I will tell you this much: being in a place where you can literally here the lapping of waves from the open windows, which are always open, because it is summertime and you are along the shore of one of America’s premiere lakes, REALLY helps to put the Internet into perspective. I’m a little worried about us, you guys. We spend too much time here. And it warps our perception of what is and what is not important. Oh well, don’t worry about it. Come Monday I’ll be right back where I belong: with my neural jack deep-socketed into the back of my neck, with my virtual reality googles bolted to my eyes, dripping sauce stains all down the front of my meme-based Threadless t-shirt. Don’t worry.

After the jump, the five Highest Rated comments, as voted on by you, the Lowest Rated comment, the winner of this week’s Jay-Z Hugging Gwyneth Paltrow Caption Contest, and the Editor’s Choice:

#4 Hi There (face here) | Aug 16th Score:121

The London Symphony Orchestra came and played in my city and I put a rock through a cello, but to be fair Sir Colin Davis’ interpretation of Tchaikovsky was downright unsavory. So this could happen at any concert really.
