Here are the nominations, submitted by readers, for the 09/01/08 Comment of the Week. The Comment of the Week is featured in a link on the sidebar of our home page. Feel free to vote for your top three favorite comments and we will award 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place.

1. Anonymous - "WHO would want their signature???? Years down the road, you will line your bird cage with that picture!"

2. avidshrewwatcher - "Shrew & the Nutless Wonder"

3. balletbrat - "What's next, you're going to write a children's book called 'Green Eggs And Scam'?"

4. Carrie Ann - "When Kate said, 'Thank you for living in a free country,' I couldn't help but laugh. KON is taking the living in a free country quite literally."

5. BK - "Thank you that we live in a free country...even though I'd really like to get rid of that free speech thing. Thank you for the eight little income generat'...err...um 'blessings'. In IUI...oops, um, GOD we trust. A-scam. Whoops! Amen."

6. fozzybear - "Jon, go light the fireworks! Living in jail might be preferable to living with Kate!"

7. Kristee - "Omg, if she is pregnant the laugh will be on all of us b/c that would mean Jon does have balls after all!"

8. Sera - "I think she needs to do more than just pull the stick out. Pull the whole damn tree out!"

9. Kate Crawford - "So has 'NO FRESH STRAWBERRIES!' become the new 'NO WIRE HANGERS!'?"

10. Anonymous - "Treat? Everything is a treat... I suppose the Trick is on the viewers."

11. ThreeFarmers - "It's not like Joel (and I think Collin came in, too) was asking if he could shave his legs or something."

12. moi - "'Worst mommy award' -- Kate, you're about 20 episodes late on this observation. "

13. ThreeFarmers - "Didn't Jon mention in the epi where the twins got their musical instruments that Kate has a 'great' singing voice? I'd rather listen to Yoko Ono sing after drinking a gallon of battery acid and smoking a case of Camel shorts."

14. Anonymous - "I think everyone is being too hard on Mady. After all, what little girl doesn't try to be just like her Mommy?""

15. Anonymous - "Rare treat, my unnerwears"

16. K.C. - "Just because he tried to take the strawberry with his hand, (instead of opening his mouth like a trained seal), she jerked it back. That is teasing. He was not taking communion. He shouldn't be forced to eat strawberries from her slobbery fingers. "

17. Steph - "And speaking of Jon, dude can't even BLEED right. If Kate had been injured, it would have knocked her out until spa time."

18. Travis - "Maybe their first single could be a nod to Ozzy - 'We're going off the rails on this gravy train'..."

19. PullTheGosselinPlug - "I cannot stand when Jon and Tammy Kate Gosselin tell us about all of the cute things the kids say and do."

20. elleroy - "I think she wanted them to get trendy hairdo's because she's shallow and selfish. Hey, so what if it hurts, right Kate? While we're at it, why don't we get the tups some tattoos. They're 'in'. We can have their birth numbers tattooed on them so that EM Tanner won't have to make any more shirts."

21. PullTheGosselinPlug - "Somehow, I don't see the Gosselin 8 being the next Jackson 5. However, I would love to hear them cover 'Take This Job and Shove It'."

22. chocolate chip - "Memo to Gordon Ramsay, Rocco DeSpirito, Mario Batali, Bobby Flay, Jamie Oliver, Emeril Lagasse, Alton Brown, and that dude who created the Waldorf Salad: Kate says boys shouldn't cook."

23. Anonymous - "It's the Kon Trap family singers!!"

24. elleroy - "I think the only recipe Kate could come up with on her own is the recipe for disaster."

25. Anonymous - "I can't see anything in that marriage worth renewing! It should be voided!!"

26. Anonymous - "No surprise they have thick skin it would tend to go with having bone heads."

27. Onomatopoeia - "A demitasse cup would fit her head like a sombrero."

28. Anonymous - "Don't you think the first place winner should get something special like maybe a FREE autographed photo of the G's??"

29. Annie - "Note to Jon and Kate: Abraham Lincoln called; he said slavery's dead."

30. Anonymous - "Their speaking engagements must include a comedy stand up act because IMO J & K are nothing but a JOKE."

31. Sara - "So here I am now, with all this stuff, and I realize that I could buy every single thing she owns, right down to her house, but it would never be enough, because I could NEVER be that big of a bitch!"

32. merryway - "I'm really disgusted with the Learning Channel. To use babies to dupe the American public is sleazy."

33. Kristee - "The whole site is bs, full of damage control and fluff that is supposed to be believable. To me it's just lipstick on a pig."

34. Anonymous - "I just looked at their new site and threw up a little in my mouth."

35. BK - "Do you know how many lawns we could fertilize if we dried this stuff out?"

36. Anonymous - "No wonder the kids have to go to the bathroom so much. She probably scares the piss out of them with her laser beam stares."

37. ThreeFarmers - "Since Jon & Kate have now expanded their empire to include not only their self-appointed charity but television, publishing, lecturing, and music, they should go into the only business meant for such an EXHAUSTED woman... a muffler shop!"

38. BK - "A baby shower that lasts four years isn't a baby shower - it's a scam."

"Jon and Swine and the working nine" didn't make the cut?

#27 is just a Wilson Mizner quote with "sunbonnet" replaced by "sombrero."

#37-5-7 for first second and third. I think that this is the best week so far. I was nearly peeing myself laughing as some of them. Great job everyone!

BTW, "Anonymous" at 9:31 p.m. on 8/31/08: I think Wilson Mizner was genius at repartee. After all, imitation is the sincerest of flattery.
