Commie time! Usually I'll collect comment-of-the-week picks from the other writers and let you know who selected what, but I think that makes it seem like only they liked that comment. So while there is input from four of us after the jump, I'll just keep anonymous. Because everyone loved everyone this week. And that's the way it should be.
- From blogissuchanuglyword in James Kurisunkal, Midwestern Teen Socialite Chronicler, Makes It In New York:
"I've recently started a blog where I write about people from Tennessee, whom I have never met. They send me pictures of themselves trying on clothes at JCPenny's, filling up a gas stations, and attending early Saturday afternoon baby showers. I add little blurbs about what it must be like to live there and who-snubbed-who in the Whole Foods parking lot the day before."
- From mathnet in XXL Magazine Threatened by Utter Teh Gheyness of Hipsters:
"You know what would be so ironic? BAGGY PANTS"
- From Sasquatch in Wall-E's Big, Fat, Offensive Problem:
"Generally speaking, people who get offended by accurate satire are douches." -Just perfect.
- From Multiphasic in Presented Without Comment:
"I just want one of the ladies to turn around and snap at him, 'Stop following this commenter!'"
- From ColonelMustard in TMZ Steals From the Poor and Gives to Themselves:
