Between the young man getting hit by a truck and the young man learning there was a maggot eating his eyeball, it has been a pretty rough week out there for young men. Of course, some of us are not young men. Impossible to tell who. Could be any of us. The important thing is that it is the weekend, affording all of us some time, young and old, to recover from the illnesses and near-fatal mishaps of the week. Go lay down! I know people hate to hear this, but we’re friends, and we always tell each other the truth, even when it is hard: you look tired.
After the jump, the five Highest Rated Comments, as voted on by you, the Lowest Rated Comment, the winner of this week’s Shark Week Caption Contest, and the Editor’s Choice.
This Week’s Highest Rated Comments
[Ed. note: Good work everyone. Last night, Videogum officially passed 199,000 published comments. That is so many comments! Personally, I had kind of hoped that everyone would rally together and post a lot of comments today so that we could get from 199,000 (over two+ years) to 1,000,000 in just 24 hours, but it looks like that’s probably not going to happen. Nevertheless: a milestone! Bartender, a round of pats on the back for my friends here.]
This Week’s Lowest Rated Comments
[Ed. note: This comment makes some pretty sweeping generalizations. Especially considering that the focus of the discussion was a misguided but ultimately well-intentioned student orientation video at a public university. But then unionman seemed to kind of explain himself, and I guess it was reverse psychology? I don’t know. In the end, I am much more confused than offended.]
