Hey! Did You See That Comment? Friday Introduces “ASS Group of the Week”

This week we’re rolling out a new addition to the comment awards: ASS Group of the Week. We’ll get to that in a mo, but right now let’s see what happened this week. Deanne Smith hated on the beach, Sarah is dating again, and Alice made a playlist for you. Riese (beautifully) discussed her sexuality and Chloe interviewed Mary Gray, the author of a book about growing up queer in rural America.


…and now the Group of the Week:

um. uh. wait. ok. wait. what was the question? ok. um. yeah. wait. what?

We’re starting off the Group of the Week feature with yodelmachine’s group, the name of which appears to have been taken directly from every conversation I (Brianna) have ever had in my life. It’s clearly therapy for awkward people which – admit it – includes you. Go. Join. And TALK! Talk about those awkward moments in your life, like that time you tripped while walking up a flight of stairs, or that one time you had to look at explicit pictures with your boss. #truestory #awkward

The Award for Colorful Alternatives to the Popemobile Award to TSwizzle:

If you were the President, how would you handle terrorism?”
“I would buy a yellow canoe. It’s my favourite colour”.
Thank God I’m not allowed to vote in American elections, coz that girl would be getting my vote. Fuck yeah, yellow canoes.”

On DeAnne Smith and the Truth About the Beach:

The It’s Better Than “Russell the love muscle” Award to scattered:

the clarification was a good call, but too late to prevent “dirty banana” becoming my new favorite slang for penis.”

On Why Are We Still Expecting Rich Corporations to Like Gays More Than Money?:

The Nickelodeon Award to Jules:

“You guys, this UO thing reminds me of that episode of Are You Afraid of the Dark? where the kids find a magical factory filled with free toys and games but then they find out that the factory is *evil* and run by sinister aliens with *no faces.*”
