It’s been a tough week, so we have some witty comments and puns for you. TGIF!

Says Facebook commenter Ian: “I did not realize that Delores Umbridge had gotten work with the USPS after the late unpleasantness at the ministry.”

“Go turtle movie. Go turtle movie. Go. No really, leave.”—Hi, Kristopher Smith!

The topic of discussion is Mass Effect, by the way. But isn’t most anything a better love story than Twilight?

“Some other suggestions for the title:
Buzzfeed gets a movie deal, you’ll never guess what happened next…
What Buzzfeed news restored our faith in humanity?
Which Chris Pratt are you in the Buzzfeed movie? Take the quiz!
6 reasons why no one is wearing makeup in the Buzzfeeds movie
This movie is the Key To Peace In The Middle East. Here 21 reasons why.”—Tomb Svalborg on 20 Things We Want to See In BuzzFeed: The Movie.

Speaking of the BuzzFeed post, I rather like this comment from OH YEAHHH: A simple “*27 Things.” You got me there.

Succinct. Accurate. FISH CANNON.

“I remember a meteorologist who after seeing the day after tommorow, insisted that the only accurate part of the movie was that all meteorologists are fantastically handsome and athletic and willing to leap over ravines in the artic to rescue easily replaceable monitoring equipment.”—Sounds legit, Nuuni Nuunani.

“When you don’t provide enough opportunities to purchase to show statistical significance, and then claim that indicates statistical significance to the degree that the sales numbers should dictate further merchandising… would you call that a sampling problem, a specious claim, dumb, or all 3?

You know, I think most of the rules of superhero merchandising need to be re-evaluated. Folks who started watching spandex hero movies in college are now having kids. it’s a whole new toy market out there.”—Too right, Margaret. More superheroine toys!

A pretty easy way to get into our favorite comments roundups: MAKE DUMB PUNS. No one ever said I’m not biased.
