Monsters’ Ball: The Week’s Best Comments

Can you guys believe that there is only one week left until TWILIGHT NEW MOON IZ HERE? It’s like all that anticipation, all those sleepless nights and sweaty palms, it all comes down to this moment. Well, not this moment, but next week’s moment. Obviously, I am joking. Twilight is for baby garbage clowns. But I’ve written about it so much these past few months that it does seem appropriate that I finally figure out what in the hell I am even talking about. So this weekend, in preparation for next week’s communal panic attack (you can have a panic attack about being TOO HAPPY, right?) I am going to watch Twilight. Oh God, what if I love it? What if I don’t come back Monday. What if I leave Videogum to start a Kristen Stewart angelfire fansite called Stew_Heads_69? Well, in the event that this is goodbye, just know that you guys were my favorite, until a terrible movie about teenage vampires as poorly-imagined metaphor for sexual confusion became my favorite.

After the jump, the five Highest Rated comments, as voted on by you, the Lowest Rated comment, and the Editor’s Choice.

Score = -47

[Ed. note: to be fair to woozefa, this comment was followed by a thread in which he explained that he was just joking, and wished that his fellow monsters would lighten up. But I do think it’s kind of a weird joke. I mean, what’s the joke? That you don’t know how to capitalize proper nouns? My point is, I don’t think anyone’s holding any grudges over this (God, can you imagine someone holding grudges over an Internet comment? I just barf’d) and woozefa totally cleared things up, but you also kind of do deserve this recognition, woozefa. Because just very simply and clearly stating that you don’t care about something is not a joke. Ask anyone. Ask Robin Williams.]

This Week’s Editor’s Choice

Alex Borstein.

Maybe if would help if you saw her in an old MADtv era racist caricature??

Posted by: Electron.Rotoscope in response to Seth MacFarlane Tired Of Jeff Dunham Getting All The Negative Attention

[Ed. note: this is one of those “the more you know, bom-bom-bom-boommmmmm” editor’s choices. This comment was in response to someone who asked who Alex Borstein was. Of course, a simpler, more direct answer would have been “she is the worst.” Although to her credit, it’s hard to be the least funny part of MadTV. And the blatant, completely unnecessary racism was a nice touch.]
