This week, the winner’s getting a copy of Happy People: A Year in the Taiga, a documentary from Werner Herzog and Dmitry Vasyukov, and we may even have a prize in store for next week. But more on that later. First, the runners up and stuff.

Last week, Bradley Cooper did what any kind hearted philanthropic movie star actor would do. He visited one of the Boston Marathon bombing victims who lost his legs in the blast. And one of our readers had this to say:

Mustafa Dystrophy: “I know how you feel bro, The A Team didn’t have legs either.”

There is no adult Make-A-Wish Foundation! Who let you in, Bradley Cooper?

And in this site’s expose of Crocodile Dundee’s history of tax evasion user Farthhammer had this to say:

Farthammer: That’s not a tax-evader, (pulls out Wesley Snipes) – THAT’S a tax-evader!

All Paul Hogan has to do is shave with a machete in court and he’s off scot-free.

Apparently there’s a British Batman and somebody had something funny to say:

Moose: In France, the Crêped Crusader appears at the scene of an ongoing crime and then refuses to intervene.

And Finnish Batman likes saunas! (But who doesn’t like a rub down?)

Tyler Perry’s stove has a motivational phrase written above it. Many FilmDrunkards found this motivating, though probably not in the way Tyler Perry imagined. He’s your muse.

Mustafa Dystrophy: Tyler Perry carved those words out of the grease buildup on his stove’s backsplash. Just another case of write on black grime.

I mean that’s just high-level wordplay right there.

Stinky Pete: That is the second worst thing ever written above an oven, after “Arbeit Macht Frei”.

I think Intern Zeke thought this was racist (this is your old buddy Vince writing this part), but I thought it was simply an unnecessary reference to the holocaust. Faved for demonstration of historical knowledge. (/Vince)

The comment of the week goes to IdleRich on the newest Pain and Gain Clip.

IdleRich: It was going to be even longer, but Bay cut the scene where Mark Wahlberg spends 20 minutes trying to pick up the juicebox he dropped.

Congratulations, IdleRich! You win a copy of the Werner Herzog film, Happy People: A Year in the Taiga! Send Vince your address to collect your prize. The Amazon description will get you super pumped!

With Happy People: A Year in the Taiga, Werner Herzog takes viewers on yet another unforgettable journey into remote and extreme natural landscapes. The acclaimed filmmaker presents this visually stunning documentary about the life of indigenous people living in the heart of the Siberian Taiga. Deep in the wilderness, far away from civilization, 300 people inhabit the small village of Bakhtia at the river Yenisei. There are only two ways to reach this outpost: by helicopter or boat. There’s no telephone, running water or medical aid. The locals, whose daily routines have barely changed over the last centuries, live according to their own values and cultural traditions. With insightful commentary written and narrated by Herzog, Happy People follows one of the Siberian trappers through all four seasons of the year to tell the story of a culture virtually untouched by modernity.
