Monsters’ Ball: The Week’s Best Comments

What a week it has been! Obviously the big news this week is Kirstie Alley’s disgusting Oprah soup recipe our redesign! I mean, it’s not news anywhere other than here, and obviously there are more important things going on in the world, probably. Maybe. But for us it has been one of those things that really takes up all of your attention and mental space to the point where you barely even have time to think about what the assassination attempt on Jon Cryer even MEANS. Does he have to give his Emmy back? I don’t know! I can’t think about it right now, I can only hope about it.

Obviously, there are still plenty of bugs to work out of the site, but I think that things are going pretty good, all things considered. And just wait until you see your ballroom’s new look! But of course please continue to send us emails at [email protected] if/when you encounter problems or concerns.
After the jump, the five Highest Rated Comments, as voted on by you, the Lowest Rated Comment, the winner of the Oprah Chocolate Caption Contest, and the Editor’s Choice.

Careful Gabe, you may get a cease & desist letter from Arbor Mist as soon as they find out you’ve posted video of their patented wine making process.

Ed. note: There was some minor concern in Videogum Headquarters right before the site relaunch that the disruption would bottom out our beloved community, because as everyone knows, change is the worst, it is the opposite of free rootbeer floats, and it makes people RUUUNNNNNNNNNNNNNN. But if anything the effect was the opposite. Everyone was very engaged this week, very chatty. It was great. Welcome back even though you never left, everybody.

i was thinking the same thing. one millionaire losing his job (and gaining $35 million) to another millionaire because millions of (stupid) people prefer one over the other is much like a group of people losing everything they own and love to a natural disaster and not getting any help from the government because they are minorities.

seriously. so much the same.

Ed. note: I don’t know why you got downvoted so much, bearface. Isn’t what you’re saying kind of just obvious and correct and agreed upon all around? We all love Conan O’Brien but we all know that he has millions of dollars and what happened with the Tonight Show was not an ACTUAL genuine human tragedy, right? Does everyone know that? Let’s just make sure everyone knows that.
