As ABC7, CBS5 and the Chron report, about 400 people showed up at Stonestown yesterday to meet Twilight second bananas Kellan Lutz and Ashley Greene.

If you’re looking for a way to kill some time, I’d like to direct y’all to the Gate comments, which have somehow managed to top themselves in silliness. At publication time, the “most recommended” comment is “What a sad state the world is in today… I wouldn’t give a $hit if someone dropped napalm on these idiots. Twilight sucks!!!!!” And yet you give enough of a shit to comment!

Seriously, you guys, this is the most (unintentionally) hilarious comment thread I’ve seen on the Gate in a long time. Check it out.

    “Typically astute”? Be careful, headline editors… your tongue is so far into your cheek, I’m afraid you might choke!

    Here, have a snark tag, on me.

    Anytime I wonder if the Chron and Hearst need to die, I just read their “comments” section, and wish that Jesus and God would just go all medieval on them.

    The sheer amount of inane BS expressed there makes me want to move to Mars and build a Death Star. Seriously. Who knew Arizona had so much pull in SF?
