Question

Ok blog readers new and old, I have a question for you. If I were to choose a comment of the week or a few or something is that the kind of thing that would be awesome and promote goodness and virtue and gumdrops and unicorns among all of us or would it create a Lord of the Flies type situation? Because I love all of you equally and also I love each of you more than any of the others and today I was reading comments and laughing out loud and my eyes were almost watering I was so loving the comments but I don't want to get in there and mess up our delicate, um, community. You know how one's digestive system is a delicate balance of bacteria (the good kind) and also whatever else is in there and if you take antibiotics or eat too much yogurt or something it can throw everything out of whack? Well I don't want this blog to get a yeast infection or become gaseous. I don't want to essentially rub raw eggs or salmonella infested chicken all over the cutting board of our love. You know?

I don't mind. Go for it. It's all good!

I think it would be cool if you listed a comment of the week - but you know that means you will get a lot more and will end up reading for hours! Will there be a prize like a used hair brush or tooth brush or toilet brush. Pretty much any brush from your apartment would be awesome. In fact one brush that did all of those things would be even more awesome. Damn, I keep waating all of my million dollar ideas on this site.

Ali-Ro -

A comment of the week is a fine idea...it could only encourage a healthy competition of wit amongst your loyal minions. If someone's frail psyche cannot handle it they should probably go find a less hilarious blog...and person...to worship and adore...perhaps one with less koalas.

Go for it. All I want to know is if you are open to bribes ? :)

Have a go at it, but don't feel like it has to become your new religion where you think you'll go to the underworld if you miss a week. It'll just be like those little andes mints... never expected, but always a welcome little treat.

Wow, I'm not sure if I could handle the cut throat competition for your written affection. Damn, I can't think of anything else witty or original to write, damn damn damn. PS: I haven't seen you delete a comment, it must have had curse words in it like fuck or shit or something.

Idea: allow submissions and feel free to suggest your own, but let us vote.

Basically after that you can do a vlog about how awesome you were when you had that thought or idea. We know the drill.

Carlos said...

I think picking a few comments every now and then to show your appreciation to your fans is an idea everyone would agree with.

Christian said...

I would love to see what you thought was the funniest comment of the day/week. Then I could make sure I crush that person the next time with a wittism that will totally slay. Slay I say. Slay!

Brett Jones said...

Do it.

I'm already planning to have my Comment of the week award framed then placed on the wall next my Medical School diploma. Sure it's not my name on the Med School diploma, but it looks so damn good up there next to my GED.

I don't care what you do Alison, but from now on I just want to be known as "Toddrod the Meringue!"

Thank You!

Sounds fine to me. Also, the phrase "Commas for the weak" keeps repeating in my head. I wonder why.

WFG said...

If I spelled comas as commas, it's probably easy to figure out why.

Trapp said...

Sure, why not try it out? Everyone here seems to be lighthearted about the whole thing.

But I don't know how I'd react if I ever made the list. Anna referenced me in a joke the other day, and I nearly had a heart attack. I just saw, "Trapp", and immediately thought, "Uh Oh. What did I do?"

By the way, sometimes people mention the verification words that they get. Mine right now is CATines. How bizarre is that?

Considering that I would have won the last 72 weeks in a row! I say go for it! I'll even let some of the other Rosen Chosen win a few times!

Stefan said...

Well everyone seems to think it's a good idea, and on the surface I would agree. I too enjoy the level of humor so often present in the comments here so in the spirit of glass is half empty, I worry that people may try too hard if there is a prize offered. I don't see the dynamic turning ugly or anything, but it could be risky. As long as everyone forgets they are competing and just posts whatever they would have posted anyway, it will all be good.

That was your cue to turn on the mind control thingy by the way.

Brett Jones said...

"I don't see the dynamic turning ugly or anything"

For your naiveté disgusts me. You'll be the first one I hunt down and kill in his sleep Stefan.

Actually, I'm starting to wonder if Alison is one of those girls who likes to have guys fight over her. Perhaps this is just a big ruse to feed her insatiable desire for attention.

Not that I care. I'm still going to knock you people off one by one until I'm the last man standing.

Toddrod said...

I just put on my athletic cup! Okie dokie Brent Jones!

BRING IT!

Brent said...

I'm Game. But be warned I am highly competitive and will cut people with cunning lingual cunnilingus.

I went there.

Brett Jones said...

I laugh at the size of your codpiece Toddrod, and since you misspelled my name I'm going to assume you were talking to someone else and ignore your challenge.

Toddrod said...

Ha! I didn't misspell your name Brett! I typo'd! Ha!
