The authors of this week’s best comments will be herded into an arena and forced to participate in a Battle of the Puns to determine who the best Mary Sue commenter is. May the odds be ever in your favor.
And yes, playing favorites with comments is a thing we’re doing now. Here’s what you missed last week.
“Snuggling twelve hamsters at once is counterindicated. Hamsters are pretty viciously territorial, and it’s rare enough to see two getting along together. It’s just not seen to have more.” — Gert Sønderby drops a knowledge bomb in our post on tiny hamsters eating tiny burritos.
“I would normally enjoy some topless Wolverine. But less so when he’s clearly suffering a subdermal eel infestation.” — brainmist displays their shocking hatred of subdermal eels in response to Days of Future Past‘s new character art.
“I saw a Norton Security tie-in with Days of Future Past today, basically suggesting that their product is as secure as Cerebro…. which makes me think the Norton Security people didn’t watch the first two X-Men movies.” — JustPlainSomething is making the corporate saboteurs in Norton Security’s marketing department really nervous in her comment about one of Days of Future Past‘s latest bonkers marketing tie-ins (the other is Twinkies).
Levedi’s takedown of George R.R. Martin’s defense of his use of rape in A Song of Ice and Fire on the grounds of historical accuracy is a thing of beauty.
“Dany: I said I like chips. CHIPS!” — speaking of Game of Thrones… thanks for clearing that up, John W.
ICYMI, The Amazing Spider-Man producer Avi Arad (who shut down a Miles Morales movie) said diversity in comic book movies is “inevitable”…. eventually. Someone’ll get there. Mattias Berntson summed things up perfectly with the comment “With great power, you can just sit back and wait for someone else to push for progress.”
“Can we vote Rebecca as new additional casting director for GoT now?” — Yes, gloriana232, you can. Michelle Forbes as a Mormont lady always and forever.
AverageDrafter says “I want Sailor Mercury [Punk Sailor Mercury, to be precise] to kick me in the face. Is that wrong? It feels wrong.”
