Respectful Commenter of the Week: Anonymous

Posted by: Mike Pomranz | September 1, 2009 at 4:00PM


The news has recently been dominated by discussions of Senator Ted Kennedy's passing.  By this point pretty much every newscaster, political pundit, journalist, blogger, Senator, statesman, analyst and asshole has chimed in with their thoughts.

But what do the commenters think?  (Of course the world wants to know!!)

Well, lucky me, it didn't take long to find this delightful comment on a Politico article:

"Kennedy was an inspiration to drunk entitled slobs everywhere."

Zing!  Take that, recently deceased political figure!  The best part is that the dead can't defend themselves… especially against anonymous comments left on a blog!  It's a double whammy of privacy protection — like shrouding your invisibility cloak with an invisibility cloak!

So congratulations, whoever you are!  You are the Respectful Commenter of the Week!

We love our readers and viewers and pretty much everyone who ever has seen or heard about our show here on Comedy Central.  But you guys can be jerks.  And you know it.

For example: We've been requesting viewers to "Submit Your Fisheye Videos" for us to use when Tosh.0 returns on October 8th.  And definitely keep sending us stuff!

But some of your comments can be inappropriate.  Like this one left on the Fisheye Video post from a Tosh.0 blog reader named tracey:

"Everything is cooler through a fish eye lens except your friend Matt"

What's that about, tracey?!  Why you gotta attack The Full Charge?

Comedian Matt Fulchiron has made a number of memorable appearance on Tosh.0, including the much heralded "Mini Vodka" video.

Have you ever been on a national TV show, tracey??  Well, if you haven't here's your big breakthrough moment.. . For your rude comment, we say to you: Congratulations, tracey!  You're our Respectful Commenter of the Week.

Barney Frank's confrontation with a woman comparing Obama to Hitler was a big story this week with plenty of news coverage and a video that quickly crossed the million view threshold.

What a silly woman!  Why confront Frank in person??  You can get away with so much more by posting your criticisms on the Internet.  Like the following comment, left by YouTuber, suzuki21rydr.

barney frank eats big piles of feeces

See that!  There is no way Frank can rebut that.  Because it's on the Internet.  Anything goes!  You can even spell "feces" anyway you f'in' like!

Try to ask suzuki21ryder what planet he spends most of his time on?!

I'll tell you where: Planet The Internet!  Take that, Barney Frank!  Zing!!

And congratulations to suzuki21rydr!  Ride that Suzuki with pride: You are our Respectful Commenter of the Week!

Respectful Commenter of the Week: The Death to Obama Guy

Posted by: Mike Pomranz | August 14, 2009 at 4:00PM


This week's respectful commenter decided to do things the old-fashioned way: A hand-written cardboard sign held up on the side of the road.

Death_Signcopy-SMThe sign, which can barely be made out to the right, reads: "Death to Obama DEATH to Obama + Michelle + 2 Stupid Kids."

Unfortunately for this guy, he could have learned a valuable lesson from his online commenting counterparts.

One of the reasons people nowadays prefer to comment online instead of IRL is because your comments are placed anonymously.  There is nothing anonymous about standing on the side of a road with a cardboard sign.

Which explains why this man was quickly detained and questioned by the Secret Service and his story found its way to every major media outlet in the country.  (No charges were pressed.  Obama obviously realizes you can't have your free speech and eat it too.)

But for your reckless love of "kickin' it old school," congratulations to "The Death to Obama Guy."  You are our Respectful Commenter of the Week!
