Monsters’ Ball: The Week’s Best Comments

Last weekend, something strange happened. Some of the Videogum Monsters created their own secret, password-protected chat room. In 2009! Incredible! I suppose every monster has his cave, or whatever. As it turned out, though, we already had a Videogum Chat Room, originally set up last winter for the 2009 Academy Award Video Pizza Party, and lying dormant, empty and silent ever since. Until now. Now there’s monsters in there all the time! It’s like that secret room in Harry Potter that you can only find if you are a nerd. You should check it out, if you want. Or don’t. This is America, it’s up to you. Put it in your pocket for later. Whatever. But this is a weekly feature highlighting the week’s best comments, not the week’s best chat rooms, and so:

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

This Week’s Highest Rated Comments


Not really. But I do really want to put farts in his puppets.

Score = 62

[Ed. note: this is a really funny comment, but it demands context, so I figured I would provide it so everyone can enjoy at their leisure. Superglue originally commented “I’m going to buy tickets to his next comedy show, sneak backstage and fill all of his puppets with farts,” to which Sarcastically Misunderstood replied “Do you really want to put money into his pocket?” and then this. Lots Of Love.]

When the producer behind the Blue Collar Comedy Tour, the man who gave LARRY THE CABLE GUY a job, criticizes you for not telling enough professional-level jokes, you have got some serious fucking problems.

Score = -18

[Ed. note: I think it is a sign of how much the monsters have been mashing these days that the lowest rated comment is not only the definition of innocuous, but it’s not even very low rated. Look at you guys! And who said monsters could never get along? (This guy did, but who cares about him.)]

This Week’s Editor’s Choice

I hope he’s not going to be forced into taking bad roles just to pay the bills.

[Ed. note: This is funny because Nicolas Cage, the pauper, has made a lot of really awful movies.]
