It’s that time of the week again. The time we are burdened with the unfortunate task of taking ourselves seriously. When we’re forced to become the hero of the wastes by sifting through all your wonderful comments and picking the ones that get to be either glorified in internet Bartertown (COTW) or sentenced to Thunderdome (account banning). Here’s who is safe…for a week:
