THE INTERNET — Here at, we read a lot of things.

From hundreds of pages of grueling court documents to the descriptions on viral videos, we are constantly digesting information from around the interwebs. However, some of our favorite content comes in the form of comments on our articles.

The comments over the years have given us a wide range of emotions, including dismay, shock and even some gut-wrenching laughs. We decided to take a cue from Jimmy Kimmel Live (celebrities reading mean tweets are pure internet gold) and we created our own video.

We filmed our writers reading a selection of the best comments we have received over the years (some of the gems had to be filtered due to mature content, obviously.) But we had a lot of fun making the video — we choose to laugh rather than drown our feelings in pints of Ben & Jerry’s while listening to slow, haunting melodies from Eric Carmen.*

So here’s to you, our loyal commenters. You keep us sharp and give us the entertainment that only the anonymity of the internet can produce.

*I can neither confirm or deny that this has ever happened.
