    Anderson...the story of Anthony Weiner has become worn....the true story behind this should be focused on three issues...How these pictures were hacked....Who is responsible for posting these pictures...and what is the motive behind these illegal actions....I feel that you are one of the best investigative journalist around and these questions would make a more worthwhile story for your news network to pursue....just posting the pictures and sitting around waiting for the senator to resign is not news....I hope you will heed the behind the scenes involvement of whoever is truely responsible for the destruction of a hard working public servant....

    Your ridiculist belongs on yours ridiculist because it is ridiculus. Try that in scrabble!. Why not show is something that will make us feel good instead of, and yes, deny all you want but you are.... MAKING FUN OF OTHERS. There is so little good news, hit us with ducklings crossing the street, baby birds in a nest, somebody doing something nice, yes, that one will be tough to catch but you can do it. I usually flip channels when your list comes up because I think it is mean spirited and sometimes downright cruel. Oh you baaaaddd boy!!

    not long after watching AC360 i read a blog my nephew and his wife are posting from their travels (now in South Korea). well, they had just visited the Penis Park. It is built around old fishing village folk-lore, and the statues, carvings and all things penis are a sight to be seen. just wondering if Mr. Tapley has ever been or has even traveled out of his very small world.

    I guess if one is constantly, and by that I really mean obsessively, looking for male and female genitalia in art, design, architecture and ANYTHING else, one can find it anywhere...if you really...I mean REALLY want to! Gee...I wonder what the "guys" at Mt. Rushmore are lookin' at? I know...those hills over there...ya know what THEY look like?

    Sounds like the guy has a few unresolved problems here. Of course, now I'll be looking for something obscene on my pizza tonight! Gee...thanks a lot! What a joke! I'm still laughin'!

    Obviously, Mr. Tapley hasn't spent any time around Dallas-Ft Worth. You would have to live in DFW to find that guy so ..well, Ridiculistable!! (Stop here & find a MAP of the area of the DFW Metroplex) The map is one huge PENIS!! Go look. I swear.
    I could see it. 6AM: Tapley sips his morning coffee, searching silently for naked swirly things in the hotel bedspeard. He looks up at the TV & gets a glimpse of the DFW Metroplex morning traffic map. Screaming back Denver. I see it. Can't you? Cracks me everytime. Debbie from Keller, TX.

    lol, I was loving all the nicknames-1-winged dove of the rapture, commodore, 3rd-eye-blind, and conqueror were awesome. The 5th Beatle of belzebub was downright hilarious. The guy's nuts, but the amused tone of this clip made it really fun. 🙂

    Looking around my home, I see it is FILLED with phallic shapes I wasn't even aware of... but upon closer inspection due to the astuteness of Mr Tapley, I have been enlightened. I love candles, yet as they "stand at attention" with the globular shaped votives, I SEE IT! And some glass vases, with a slight roundness at the bottom... AHA! Another phallic shape... I'm beginning to see them ALL.. as I roam room to room. I must be a "closet phallic symbolist" and wasn't even aware.. They say you learn something new every day. Out of Mr Tapley's tirade I have learned one thing, I will never enjoy my home's tchachke's the way I once did. I've also learned that some people seem to thoroughly enjoy making an ass of themselves (re: Mr. Tapley) The BEST part of this Ridiculist segment was Anderson cracking up... 🙂
