08/25 Comment of the Week: Vote Now!

Here are the nominations, submitted by readers, for the 08/25/08 Comment of the Week. The Comment of the Week is featured in a link on the sidebar of our home page. Due to another week with a multitude of nominations, feel free to vote for your top three favorite comments and we will award 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place.

1. BK: "You know what they say: All scam and no spending makes Kate a dull girl."

2. BK: "I'm not expecting them to grow side burns and start giving everyone free Cadilacs (ala Elvis), but it cracks me up that they just happened to take 8x10 glossy prints on their trip. They probably gave the swimming instructor a picture that hadn't sold at their speaking engagement."

3. Anonymous: "I would have dragged her into that water and forced her head into the sand for the crabs to eat."

4. Kristee: "I wonder what kind of person he'd be if he weren't married to the Grinch who stole childhood."

5. sis: "What will they do in 8000 sq ft? Perhaps that is Jon's plan...no, Kate will make him wear a bell around his neck."

6. Anonymous: "i love that kate informed aaden that he would get lost and then he wouldn't have a mommy... doesn't she realize how tempting that might be for him!?!?"

7. Anonymous: "But instead of just one more--we got six! And today, I could very well lose my contract! That's why we are now focusing on damage control."

8. Anonymous: "My guess is Jon will read this and the author will get an email saying 'He does the best I can.'."

9. Anonymous: "Heck, go sell fish to tourists in T-shirts, if you have to. Something."

10. Anonymous: "I just wonder with KON relocating to NC, will Kate dress up as the lady of the manor in full cotillion dress, sipping on Mint Juleps and yelling at the 'servants'. And Jon will become a 'gentleman farmer' and play golf every day (probably to get away from K's mouth). Pretty picture. We can call it 'Kon With The Wind'."

11. Anonymous: "Interesting how a tiny closet lit by a dim bulb and fingers connecting to a keyboard can make one suddenly grow a pair."

12. Anonymous: "Joel is a sweet, gentle and kind soul with unlimited potential... unlike ice cream stains, emotional stains don't wash off."

13. Moons in Leo: "Using gender as an insult; i.e. Joel acting like a girl. At least Joel has balls, Jon."

14. AmandaT: "Honestly, the only reason I watch anymore is so I know which sponsors to boycott."

15. elleroy: "Today I may very well lose my integrity."

16. Anonymous: "Silly me, I was hoping to see the job of dressing the kids passed on to THE KIDS themselves!!!"

17. Anonymous: "I so agree, they would never do that to their darling Hannah! Makes me want to be a vomitous girl."

18. Laura: "Why don't they just go to a circus, put their kids on display and request donations. It's just about the same thing."

20. Ally: "Yeah, the hole is from where her soul used to be. She didn't want it anymore because it wasn't free."

21. Anonymous: "I am just not sure how Kon sleeps at night. They are a tag team wrecking machine."

22. Lonnyswife: "Mom shut me in the laundry room on the floor when I was sick and Aunt Jodi held me and rubbed my back."

23. sis: "Two thoughts:

1. You can lead a twin to water but you won't let her swim.
2. You can lead a twit to water but you won't push her in.

The first one was waste of the twins' time. They could have been down on the beach with Jenny or doing something other than getting hot and impatient, leading to the inevitable meltdown.

The second was just a waste of a perfectly good opportunity."

Being nominated along with all of the brilliant comments that are posted here week after week is wonderfully wonderful enough!!!!!!!!!

Seti said...

Serena--maybe make an online poll for comments of the week. I really hope you and the editors aren't tallying these things manually.
