how bad were the rest if that won!
Good afternoon, parasites. I expect after a long hard week of aggravating wittering on the Reg threads you'd like nothing better than to sit back and enjoy a nice hot drink and a bit of a blowback of said burblings, eh? Well, don't say I never do anything for you. Here is the inaugural Comment of the Week, with the promised …
Sorry, I must object m'lady.
This comment ended up with me wiping sugared tea and spittle from my laptop screen:

...surely this has to be a contender for the world's dirtiest PC:
Ah it must be Friday. A good comenttard bashing article by our benevolent moderatrix. I wonder how many revisions it took to write that article, and could she do it with a straight face? Cue the stream of grandstanding commenttards trying desperately to write something witty (yet have it appear unaffected and natural) so as to appear in the next week's CoTW etc.
Its fun stuff like this that makes El Reg a far better read than more “serious” tech sites. (Disregard the part where the commenttards from those sites venture over to El Reg to whinge about the lack of seriousness. They don't seem to grasp irony or hypocrisy.) Tech/Science reporting and reviews of various widgets and gizmos becomes just so dry without some humour.
So keep it up my fellow commenttards! Never let there is never a lack of the witty, diverting and obscene in our comment pages. It is what keeps things interesting!
I see we can comment on the best comment of the week article.
Does that mean that next week we'll have an award for best comment on the best comment of the week article? And the following week we'll have an award for best comment on the award for best comment on the best comment of the week article? And so on.
"It was a difficult task to choose a winner, chiefly because days frequently pass without a single authentic witticism occurring across the entire site, and because I am so wearied by my Sisyphean endeavours that most days Dylan Moran himself could cavort across my desk reading from History's Most Laughingest Hilarities and I would not be able to summon a smile."

Gentlemen*, I think we lost. AIUI, no particular comment stood out, and instead one was picked at random - the smirk (if I read it correctly) was the Reg staff premeditating the look of dismay and despair on the faces of the straining commentards when realizing that the Camel Balls are going to someone whose idea of humor is brick dust in a brick factory.
Or, the AC got to the right pub at the right time...
* Just a figure of speech.
Well I see a very mild level of humor in the Brick Dust comment, admittedly it stems soley from the Lack of 'Guess what' in the comment. - which could show either a subtle cleverness or a acute dumbness. Fortunatly due to the quality of this site one would assume the former however one cannot ruleout that AC was the latter, and a visitor drawn in from external sources linking etc.
Actually I feel the redeeming humour is applied in by el Mod's comment 'whose way with a story twist is worthy of early M Night Shyamalan' which actually trumps the original!
I guess the only justification for this award is that its Balls.
