I’ve been wracking my brain to figure out where I’ve seen this picture before and then this popped up in my browser:

#4 Ian | Apr 19th Score:87

At their age it’s called a Hot Flash Mob

#3 That One | Apr 19th Score:111

I give it about two weeks before a “puts (…) up ass” joke is the highest-rated comment of the week.

This Week’s Lowest Rated Comment

#1 Steve Winwood | Apr 15th Score:-39
This was the first time I watched parks and recreation and it will be the last. So boring and cheesy. Who cares if these vapid boring characters get make believe married (I’m stealing Gabe’s bit there).

I like Will Ferrel a lot and liked him okay on the office but its such a lame show.

Also while I like 30 rock a ton I didnt laugh at this one, too many lame Family Guy style cut away non sequiter bits. Not funny, probably the least funny episode they’ve ever done

To make things worse I finally got around to watching the second episode of the killing, soooo dumb and boring, shut it down!

This Week’s Editor’s Choice

chris | Apr 20th Score:23

Soft Gabe’s recaps were definitely the best (only?) reason to watch Glee. He will be missed.

[Ed. note: Gone, but not forgotten. R.I.P. SOFT GABE! (1999-2012)]

  1. Lowest voted for Steve Winwood? I thought he was like Tracey Jordan after Hard To Watch, but now he’s back to being Tracey Jordan after T.G.I.F.


  2. Monsters, I just want to remind you all that we will be having a Monster meet up in New Orleans on May 14th at Desperados Pizza.

    More info can be found here on the spankin’ new MOBFD site:
    http://mobfd.com/?p=462

    Please come and meet everyone and drink too much!

  3. Hey guys! http://mobfd.com/, the site run by Videogum Monsters, has shifted to a new place. We’ve moved to WordPress, which is the same system Videogum uses and is niftier than Blogspot, which is what we were using. There are still a few bugs to be ironed out (and let us know what they are) but it is open for business!

    Big ups to Chris Trash, who’s put in a ton of hours on both sites to get it going. Thanks CT!

  4. Congrats on your EGOT, FLW! You did it! One day, I will have an EGOT of my own when the Editor’s Choice becomes mine.

  5. Prediction for the Killing tv show this week: the dad will look in the mirror and see superimposed in his reflection a greasy looking guy with long hair making menacing crazy faces. Then the goofy cop guy who talks like snoop dawg on a zune will have a dream of a midget speaking that is recorded backward and then played reversed so what he’s saying is crazy sounding.

  6. Nice work, FLW. This is almost certainly the most exciting thing that will happen to you in the next few weeks.

  7. also woo monster’s ball thanks guys


    might have gotten a bit out of control there

  8. Congrats FLW & That One. Geez, give a guy a chance to break into the Top 5, why don’t cha?

  9. I congratulated FLW further up in the Ball, but at this time I’d like to give a collective upvote to everyone for this week’s caption contest. I didn’t get a chance to read it until now, but holy shit you guys knocked it out of the park.

    Except that Mr. Slave guy. Jethus Christh he’s a dick.
