What a week it has been! Wah-wah-wee-wah, or whatever. (Borat.) This week we learned a lot about writing and loneliness. And someone let the clowns out! But most importantly, we stayed safe.

After the jump, this week’s five Highest Rated Comments, as voted on by you, the Lowest Rated Comment, the winner of the Diddy Got Slimed Caption Contest, and the Editor’s Choice.

  1. WHAT!?? Aw come on, guys, jeez. I got Worst Commentator two weeks in a row! That’s not fair!

  2. Chicago Monsters – I’m sure you know but here’s the second warning –
    And No acrimony, please. I have more than met my quota for face punchings this month.

  3. Before this gets out of hand: you are all special flowers and unique like flakes of snow

  4. My first Monsters’ Ball. I’m so excited.

  5. Better luck next time, self.

  6. It’s Friday Night!
    Time for the Monster dance party!

  7. I got a 74 on one of my comments this week and hoped that would be enough, but alas, ’twas not. I got a taste and now I’m hungry for more! P.S. Nice work, wrj89 — that comment went above and beyond.

  8. And isnt #4 a Gif comment? Jussayin

  9. did i miss the winner of the birdemic tickets?

  10. That was a short one Gabe, have you got somewhere to be tonight? Ooh check out my new commenting robes.

  11. It’s good to be back, guys. Let’s just hope I don’t get fired for spending so much time here.

    i’m a stupid moron with an ugly face and a big butt and my butt smells and i like to kiss my own butt.

  13. Yay! Thanks of course to werttrew for tirelessly submitting Amelia for the WMOAT. It will be remembered as the moment the blog became self-aware.

    • Self-a-what?

    • I gotta tell you I was overwhelmed by that image. It must have taken a lot of work! I’ll start using it each week.

      • I just love the fact that we don’t need a blogger to provide us with content, but that we (you) can just create a recurring feature ourselves within the blog. Gabe is now the Old Media.

        And please do use it, I was kind of nervous about having to repost it every week, which might feel like I’d be leeching off your Great Campaign.

  14. Yeah… monsters ball, time for me to feel like a looser.

  15. I must say, I thoroughly enjoyed my time in Videogum chat this week, I suggest everyone try it. For your Health!

  16. I’d like to make a weekend music recommendation to all you Monsters out there: Top Dog’s new album Slam Dunk’n Hoes. Stereogum needs to get off their ass and do a write up on this bitch because this shit is the bomb.

  17. Wow. Never thought i would place first when my second attempt at the party game was my prefered choice. What does the “winner” recieve anyways?

  18. Monster’s Ball is introduction time, except last week, when it was awkward family holiday with your alcoholic aunt falling off the wagon and your schizophrenic uncle locking himself in the bathroom, and your first cousin, who you’re pretty sure is on crack, making forward sexual advances on you, just before your 15 year-old sister announces she’s pregnant and her high school History teacher is the father. But this week: introductions! So hey, I’m me. I’ve been reading Videogum for like a year and a half, and I got my sister addicted to it so I could have SOMEONE in this world who understood me, but that still was not enough, it’s never enough, so I’ve decided to comment sometimes. Not all the time. I gotta pretend I have a life, come on. Trivia: I used to have a livejournal!

  19. I’m not really a fan of screaming children, but that baby monster who announces the Ball is so cute.

    • I like kids and taking care of little kids, so when I see that boy throwing a tantrum the camp counselor in me is like “No, Joey. We use our inside voices and say ‘please’ when we want something. Now, what do you say?”

  20. I would just like to say that you guys are the greatest collection of strangers on the interwebz. Seriously, you all are the best, with Gabe being King The Best (durrrrrr). It was heartwarming to see everyone come together again like a family after that weird divide that took place last week. I’ve been quietly lurking in the shadows for the better part of a year or so but never commented until yesterday. I’m not as smart or witty as you guys but I’ll try to contribute in a positive manner if at all possible. Have a good weekend everybody!

  21. This has been a great week guys! I am upset that the Kiri/Kenny Powers epic love story has not commenced. It could be a new Atonement, or any other period drama (no pun).

  22. This be some shameful shit. YOU KNOW I DESERVED THE TOP PRIZE, GABE. You’re just too blind to see the TRUTH!!!

    Which is that Topher sux buttz!!!

  23. Whatever happened to Kenny Powers? and the monster’s ball puppy parades?

  24. we should all do our part to keep monster’s ball adorable.

  25. Well, since it appears to be the cool thing to do, I’m using Monsters’ Ball to introduce myself too. I’m yet another long-time reader who’s been too goddamn lazy to comment. Now, since I’m writing a thesis and thus constantly on my computer, I feel the need for new distractions, so here I am. Hopefully my current bitterness and stress will translate into wit.

    • Hey, buddy! I’d suggest we hold hands through this difficult moment in our internet lives, but holding hands is too much human contact for me. People who comment on blogs are extremely socially awkward, get it?

    • Since you’ve made it that far in your education, you are totally going to rock your thesis. Good luck!

      My motto in school was “It’ll get done” which was more comforting than “I’ll get it done” because it left room for the daydream that someone else would do my work for me. In the end, the work always did get done though sadly it was always done by me and not a paper writing and researching fairy.

      Welcome to commenting. Wit is always good but you can also just tell pointless stories like me.

  26. Favorite part about Dogs?

    They hate the po too

  27. So after I came back from MTV Spring Break with Carson Daly, it was brought to my attention there is ANOTHER Jeff?!?!

    I have switched my avatar to the Mad Men Alison Brie because that is what I must do in this situation. Jeff 2, let’s fight it out. Like Men. Dressed as Alison Brie.

    • I’m glad you left the cupcake in the corner. Otherwise I might still BRIE confused. (GET IT????!!)

      • NOBODY LEAVES CUPCAKE IN THE CORNER! Except for me, because that is what I did.

        Oh and there is absolutely no need to explain that joke to BRIE. Do you see what I just did there? Because I don’t.

        • So no need to explain it to Alison Brie. Got it. Or Brie the cheese, maybe. Either way, I will not explain things to cheeses. I will just let them be great and eat them for who they are, not what they look like on the outside.

  28. Although I’m clearly not in the Ball, I just wanted to thank everyone, I made a personal best this week of 33!

    (…I’m not very funny.)

    • This has nothing to do with anything! I just wanted to see if I could post an image because I’ve never done that before, and the first thing I thought of was Gabe Kaplan.

      Let me try another one!
