Monsters’ Ball: The Week’s Best Comments

World Cup Fever! SCOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOORE! Right, guys? SCOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOORE! Get it? Sports talk. Has anyone been watching? I really like watching the World Cup, but I haven’t been watching this year. What a sad, but very interesting, story. Although, just because I haven’t been watching the World Cup doesn’t mean I haven’t been privvy to the Internet’s borderline-racist obsession with the vuvuzela. We get it, Internet! You find unusual (not that unusual) foreign traditions to be hilarious and/or annoying! “Those South Africans should shut up!” (1948-1994, 2010) No wonder the Internet loves Betty WHITE! (Haha. Dumb.) Anyway, soccer, you guys. And Fridays. And comments. Make some noise! (Get it? Vuvuzela reference. Your favorite. You racist.)

After the jump, the week’s Highest Rated Comment, as voted on by you, the Lowest Rated Comment, the winner of this week’s Omar from The Wire and Gabe Caption Contest, and the Editor’s Choice:

Maybe you misunderstood. What I was actually saying was that Gabe has a girl pussy.

Who cares!!! My boyfriend thinks the same with me. He- is eight years older than me, lol. We met online at an age gap dating site [A_g_e_m_i_n_g_l_e @ c.//o.//m]—a nice and free place for Younger- Women and Older Men, or Older Women and Younger Men, to interact with each other. Maybe you wanna check out or- tell your friends

Ed. note: Sure. Worthy of downvoting. We do our best to get rid of the spam comments but some of them do get through. That being said, if a stray spam comment is the worst addition to the debate we’ve got going these days, we are doing great!
