Monsters’ Ball: The Week’s Best Comments

Oh, here is a friendly reminder: both The Ricky Gervais Show and Funny or Die Presents are premiering tonight on HBO. Great news! Both of those shows look great. I could use some laughs. This winter is killing me. Enough, already, winter, I GET IT. You have made your point. Fun fact: the only thing more interesting than a small-talk conversation about the weather at a boring party with someone you don’t like is a BLOG POST ABOUT THE WEATHER. The only thing you’re probably wishing right now is that this was longer (is what he said).

After the jump, the Five Hottest Comments, as voted on by you, the Coldest Comment, the winner of the Videogum Caption Contest, and the Editor’s Choice. FORECAST: STRONG.

I signed in JUST to say I respect your acknowledgment and self-awareness of a blog like this that strives to be so much and bring so much entertainment but can sometimes result in a race to the bottom in terms of tastefulness for the sake of laffs. That’s what separates this place from many other pop-culture blogs or the true garbage pits of the internet such as 4chan.

That said, this post is fat, gay, and retarded.

[Ed. note: it is becoming more and more clear that the inmates are now running the asylum, so to speak, or perhaps to put it in words you will all understand: the monsters are now running the cave. Because boy oh boy, from the outside of it, even I don’t understand what is going on here. RIOT IN THE CAFETERIA!]
