Comments of the Week is that time of the week when I recognize the commenters that babysat the funny, and molested it. Usually it happens Monday morning, but daddy drinks.
As always, the way this works is, at any time this week, when you read a comment you think worthy of recognition, YOU nominate it by copy and pasting it in the comments section of THIS post (below). I pick the winner from among the nominees the following Sunday/Monday. (To help you find it more easily, the nomination thread is always linked in the ABOUT section).
Up to speed? Let’s do this. First up, nothing like an awful tragedy to bring out the best of the comments section. From DADDY ATE MY EYES:
Burnsy says: “That little boy just became 100% sexier to me.”
John Wayne in a Devo Hat says: “The child was immediately rushed to the ICU But You Can’t See Me.”
Vodka says: “Jesus’ favorite TV show is MXC, but he won’t watch it because it’s on Spike.”
Chodin says: “This shit is so emo, the director had to yell ‘don’t CUT!’ after each take.”
ChinoMoreno says: “A true villain would have given her a box of crabs.”
Al says: “I asked for a cockatoo, not a cock or two. Get that thing outta my face.” [Ed note: wouldn't be funny if Al weren't a girl.]
Pauly Dangerously says: “I like how movies are now leaning towards the ‘fat guys getting hot chicks’ premise. It’s about time that Hollywood recognizes that us big guys ne..*microwave buzzer goes off*
OOH! MY F*CKING CORNDOGS ARE READY!”
And for the winner, I couldn’t pick just one. I had to award both of these, as one is clever and the other inexplicably hilarious. Clever first: from SHIA LABEOUF WAS A 9-YEAR-OLD COMEDIAN:
The Mighty Fek’lhr says: “‘Shia, how old were you when you started comedy?’
Shia: ‘This many!’ *holds up hands*” [Get it? It's funny because it makes fun of his disability. -Ed.]
And then there was this. For the life of me, I can’t figure out why this makes me laugh so hard. From JOSH BROLIN TO PLAY JOHN BROWN:
Chodin says: “Brolin: ‘I know the character really well…I mean, we dug him up, f*cked with his shoes, arranged his fingers into gang signs and then took pictures. …Yeah, I know the character.'”
Good job, all. I look forward to more sexy circle jerk action this week.
