Here are the nominations, submitted by readers, for the 08/18/08 Comment of the Week. The comment of the week is featured in a link on the sidebar of our home page. It's not going to be easy to vote for just one -- it was a busy week on the blog and we had a record 28 comments nominated!

Please vote by number:

1. Bicoastal: "Jon & Kate seem to bring everybody down to their level. Even a network."

2. Katherine: "Don't bite the hand that feeds you... organically."

3. Anonymous: "4 years ago they struggled to put food on the table and now they're moving into an 8,000 sf house. So did Jed, Granny, Ellie Mae, Jethro and all of the critters."

4. Bicoastal: "Top Ten Names for the Future Gosselin Estate: 10. The House That Greed Built, 9. Bite us, PA! 8. Cupcake Manor, 7. Exploitation Ranch, 6. Do Not Look at our Waves, 5. Malaprop Estates, 4. Casa de Shrew y No Cajones, 3. Grandma Can't Find Us Now!, 2. McLazy's Mansion, 1. Suckers!"

5. Anonymous: "Ok, this is it...I'm done with this show. Kids are cute but this has become the Jon and Kate road show and I feel like staying home."

6. Lauri: "Good, bad, or indifferent, people are tuning in to watch this sideshow act, but instead of the bearded lady and man with two heads, we get the porcupine headed lady and man with no balls."

7. Anonymous: "Here's an idea for a 'reality' show. The Real Gosselins. Someone needs to follow them around AND their enabling crew and made a documentary about it."

8. Sabrinasmom: "That looks more like an ass to me. So it really is an accurate description of Kate."

9. Carol Sue: "My heart took the pictures, and I'll hold them inside forever."

10. Hawkeye95: "What company makes that pest strip that was hanging in J & K's garage? It really is effective! Didn't you notice how fast it caught Kate?"

11. Anonymous: "Is it the goal of TLC to intentionally insult the entire 'working class' population? ... I think TLC has lost all concept of what is REALITY!"

12. SmartyQ: "When you look at the big picture with regard to Kon, you realize they have the social grace of goats. Nothing can make these rubes into class acts."

13. Jen: "...Jon has never met a job that didn't like him."

14. Anonymous: "Poor Jon and Kate just have no space and cannot tolerate the cold, cold PA winters. They really should move to a warmer area as Kate has always wanted. But wait, Jon is right, it's SUCH A WASTE of money to remodel and we know how thrifty the poor, poor Gosselins are. So that they just don't have to move again in a couple years, they really should just build a new house with room for everyone, wide hallways and plenty of storage. Gee, they seemed to like NC, maybe they should move there?"

15. BRH in VA: "She once again showed her 'hickness' by taking everything like the Beverly Hillbillies in that van. I'm surprised she didn't have a rocking chair strapped to the top (or a plastic chair."

16. Anonymous: "I'm sorry Kate, but the job of Paris Hilton has already been taken."

19. BK: "This show has become a sham and I'm not talkin' pillows."

20. Kristee: "By the time puberty hits the tups, hopefully J and K will be coming out of it."

21. Elle: "'Multiple Blessings', ha! It should be called 'Multiple Scams and I'm Not Above Using God in Them'."

22. News Bug at 6: "And the Gosselin's PR folks drive this big ol Hummer of perception past numerous intersections of reality and exit onto a tragic comedy - without even signaling."

23. 5monkeys: (Can you share with us what things they were selling?) "I'm willing to bet their souls were two of the items up for sale."

24. Anonymous: "I think a more appropriate title would be: Multiple Ble$$ings."

25. Anonymous: "As Kate indicate in previous episodes, 'this has become a Gosselin family tradition'. Tossing away friends and family after they've been sucked dry seems to be one of those traditions."

26. ThreeFarmers: "Watching this show is like visiting those people who insist on showing you their vacation slides each time you go to their house. Except at the Gosselins house, you'd have to fold the laundry during the slideshow."

27. Lisa: "Oh, and I did have two other children at the time but had to cut out spa visits, plastic surgeon, teeth whitening, and vacations so that I was able to give him my undivided attention."

28. SB: "Money did not stop Beth and Jodi from helping Kate, but money stopped Kate from keeping Beth and Jodi on their show."

Serena, this is a good idea. I suggested last week that we vote for #1, Second Runner-up, and Honorable Mention. When we have so many great ones, it's really hard! What do you think?

I'm sorry, I don't remember seeing that, it was a good idea and we'll do it this week. :)

Ravello said...

I vote for 15, the Beverly Hillbilly comment. The KONS packing up the van, trailer and taking all that stuff to NC was just ridiculous.
They were going to a fully furnished, fully equipped luxury home.
Kate invents drama to make viewers feel sorry for her. "Oh poor Kate, mother of 8, look at all the work she has to do to go on vacation, poor thing."
All the comments were great.

Jackie said...

I really like 16. =)
And for the others I like, 6 and 15.

Second choice: No. 9

Third choice: No. 15

It was a great week for memorable quotes!

BeeTee said...

All excellent submissions and because the volume of nominations why not bend the rules this week and declare 2 winning comments of the week? I vote for #4 – top ten names- cupcake manor (takes the cake), followed by #22 big hummer of perception, witty, dead on, and KON would never get it.

I feel as though this section of the blog takes credibility away from its purpose. You can get your point across and emphasize the exploitation of these children without adding a joke at their expense every week.

We can get our point across while trying to avoid burnout by injecting some humor now and then.

Features such as this do not deter us from the ongoing fundamental goal of exposing the exploitation of children forced to work in the Reality TV industry. Consider it a temporary watering hole.

Also, the jokes are not at the expense of the children.
