Voting is now closed -- thank you - the winner this week was Comment #2!

===============

Here are the nominations, submitted by readers, for the 08/11/08 Comment of the Week. The comment of the week is featured in a link on the sidebar of our home page.

Please vote by number:

1. Anonymous [regarding the All Aboard episode]: "
This week, the trainwreck takes place on an actual train!"

2. Elise: "
If they don't make any money from the show, they will say when they are older, 'I had my own reality show for years, but all I got from it was this stupid Em Tanner t-shirt.'"

3. Anonymous: "Jon finally found his voice - it's been hiding in his pants with his balls."

4. Anonymous: "The show is called 'John and Kate plus Eight' not 'Jon and Kate Plus Hairplugs'."

5. Anonymous: "They are a family in need of counseling and a audit from the IRS."

6. Anonymous: "She's trying to be a celeb and blend, but that '80's punk hair meets the butt of a porcupine' just doesn't do it."

7. Anonymous: "Kate doesn't do baths, Kate doesn't do laundry, Kate doesn't do gas, Kate doesn't drive long distances. Kate doesn't do messes. Kate doesn't change clothes. Kate doesn't do family. Kate doesn't do mornings and on and on and on. Can someone please explain why this woman is considered to be 'Supermom'."

8. F.: "We should come up with t-shirts that pay homage to Kate that say, 'Is your goal to help me?'"

I get mad that people think she's super mom. She sucks. What about all of us mom's of higher order multiples that actually do it all alone, for REAL. We don't get so much as a WIC check, let alone a full service organic chef. @@

#7 for sure but #3 was a close second for me.

#7 winner
#5 second runner up
#2 honorable mention

Serena, they are all so good, I think we need to have the three categories as I have set forth above. What do you think?

You should do this in poll form and the votes would be counted up automatically.

No. 2!

Really, that would go great on a t-shirt.

#5. I would be very interested to see how much money they are getting from the public, TLC, the state of Pennsylvania, etc.

hatejonkate said...

I love number 2! You know it!

from County Down, Ire. said...

8! 8! 8!

The number of my choice...

... and the exact number of nervous breakdowns Kate will have in her sextuplets' childhood.

EM TANNER! EM TANNER! GO, ELISE! GO, ELISE!

P.S. I saw Em Tanner's stuff in the ad section of Us Weekly a few weeks ago with the snip, "As seen on J&K+8!" She's marketing her clothes on the babies then profiting like a madwoman!

KATE, YOUR KIDS ARE WALKING BILLBOARDS!

Sera said...

They are all great but #1 for me.

ticklemepink said...

Elise's - no. 2

(Does anyone know if Em Tanner has a website?)

cambridge said...

With regards to all the other excellent quotes, my preference is for F.'s quote. This does not mean 8's quote was better; it was just my personal preference.

Charlotte D'Aubigne said...

Hmm...

Eeny meeny miney mo... Catch Kate Gosselin by her toe... if she lies, don't let her go...Eeny meeny miney mo...

My vote is... (drumroll)

2!

Pepto-Bismal -what I take after each episode said...

Number 2 - the number of real children in the house.

Also, Em Tanner should really get a life and stop profiting off other people's children - even if those children are already being exploited by their parents for a great deal of money then lying to the world about it.

grammieof4 said...

I love #1, but I certainly agree with # 5. Vote #1 with #5 as honorable mention

pookeygirl said...

I have to vote for #7. Kate doesn't do anything, yet is so exhausted all the time. Must be a lack of oxygen, since her mouth is too busy firing orders and complaining so much, that her oxygen levels are totally depleted. With everyone else following her orders, sitting and claiming exhaustion is all that is left to do. Such a rough life living off everyone's hard work and money. It has to be exhausting figuring out how to spend all the charity she gets.

(It was tough, #1 almost won out, but yeah, ultimately there's more to #2 than just what you get at face value.)

I vote for number 2.

See Em Tanner's website: http://www.emtannerdesigns.com/shop/

Apparently, this woman - who calls herself "the EmT" - is exploiting more children than the Gosselins. For all Kate's garbage about how nice Em Tanner is, the truth is that woman is ruthlessly exploiting them for financial gain. Which I have to say sounds a lot like what Kon is doing.

Savethetupsfromdevil, I also saw that ad in Us Weekly. I did not realize that that was Em Tanner, though.

#5-- That had me laughing all day!

Jon and Kate, save for your children's future. What is going to happen if any get accepted to Ivy League schools? You don't want them to turn them down just because the aid package was too small.

2 for my vote.

They'll need to sell those shirts to pay for college.

Get a life, Em Tanner. Or "the EmT" as she prefers to be called.

By the way, thanks, Norwegian Forest Cat, for alerting me to this travesty occurring.

Jon and Kate I hate said...

On the back of the shirts, we could put, "Take a number."

Opinionaire said...

A word to Anonymous of nominee number 5: Does anyone care that the counseling would also come free of charge, courtesy some poor church group struggling to stay afloat?

That said, #3 Anonymous: You have my vote. Also, for the kids sake, I hope they don't divorce.

Peanut Butter on rye said...

Thanks!

And thanks for starting the blog!

For once, I have nothing more to say.

Brilliant, Elise.

#2 please.

Despite the profit potential for 8, we prefer to cast a double vote for number two.

Kathleen Dmitri said...

You go, 5.

The Gosselins keep three sets of books, one for TV, one for the IRS, and one for the truth. Which one do you think makes them sound the best?

#2, please!

As a new Kater (Kate hater), I'm very upset that I didn't catch onto all of her little tricks earlier. Believe me, if my mother had raised me the way Kate Gosselin raises her children, I would be a passive-aggresive, emotionally-detached adult.

Also, Cambridge, I'm just curious: did you attend Cambridge University in England? Your neutral opinion suggests so. I spent my year abroad at Cambridge, so look me up on another comment page and we'll have a chat.

Moderators -

Can I nominate Kathleen Dmitri's comment about the three sets of books? I know that's probably not possible, being on the voting page for this week's comment.

Thanks!

Also, I pick 2!
