Reader comments are to blogs what letters to the editor used to be, more or less. But as anyone who used to read those has long recognized, blog comments are — not unlike blogs themselves — faster, shorter, and often far more irreverent. Which is what makes them so much fun. So, as the year draws to the close and the Year in Review pieces accumulate as fast as the Best Of lists, we thought we'd weigh in with our own Best Blog Comments of 2010.

Have we missed some good ones? Of course we have. There were about 7,000 comments, so forgive us if you wrote a haiku version of the Great American Novel in comment form and we didn't include it. You can always comment below and remind us, or hey, there's always 2011. Turn the page for 10 of our favorite blog comments of the last year. And thank you.

Do Not Phở-sake Me, Oh My Darling

9. Cam: I was a participant in this study, and it had some egregious methodological flaws. Participants “inflicted” tone blasts on the actor by circling numbers on a piece of paper. Anyone with any sense of cause and effect would realize that circling numbers on a sheet of paper could in no way be translated into a tone blast in real time to another room. Not to mention that the supposedly live video of the actor showed no signs of him receiving the tone blasts – he wasn't wearing headphones and no tone blasts were heard from his side of the video. It was clear from the onset that I was not inflicting pain on the actor.

This just goes to show how important it is to carefully consider the Methods section of a research paper. This doesn't mean that what the researchers found is not true, but in no way can we conclude that meat calms men down until a study with a better methodology is conducted.

2. non blogger who is laughing & crying: I can only hope that LAweekly has some system for closing and or removing all comments so that people can return to more productive behavior. Like eating, and laughing, and posting – each according to their own style – so I can go back to Reading about food and chefs – and not about bloogers.
