—Opus, Bloom County.
Yes, at first I was happy to be learning how to read. It seemed exciting and magical. But then I read this! Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand. I read every last word of this piece of garbage, and because of this piece of shit, I'm never reading again!
— Officer Barbrady, during a parade in his honour. ("Chickenlover")

Dewey: Returning a book?

Dewey: (points to garbage can) That's not a book return.
Library Patron: Consider it a review.
Quotes on works:
"It is complete loose stoolwater. It is arse-gravy of the worst kind."
"This film is frequently hampered by the fact that it's horrible."
—James Lileks, on A Study in Scarlet.
"This movie doesn't scrape the bottom of the barrel. This movie isn't the bottom of the barrel. This movie isn't below the bottom of the barrel. This movie doesn't deserve to be mentioned in the same sentence with barrels."
"Dirty Love wasn't written and directed, it was committed. Here is a film so pitiful, it doesn't rise to the level of badness."
"There's camp-fun bad and interestingly horrible bad, and then there's just awful. Movie 43 is the Citizen Kane of awful."
"This was not made, it was committed. This cannot be screened, it can only be inflicted."
—Oancitizen, on Sweet Movie.
"...watching it actually makes me cringe. I feel like I have to turn the volume down and face the TV toward the wall and watch it in a dark corner of somewhere where nobody will ever know. It just leaves you with a bad, bad feeling, like this movie should not exist."
"Should the makers of Nukie wish to use computer graphics imaging to retroactively enhance their movie, we recommend they digitally remove the whole movie."
—Jabootu on Nukie
"Parents should take their children to Hoodwinked Too! Hood Vs. Evil, if only because kids are never too young to learn the important and liberating skill of walking out of a movie and demanding a refund."
—Kyle Smith of NY Post
Matt: I am not even really sure I can put into words how bad the plot of this movie is. Like, we often talk about bad plotting, but thisÖisnít even really a plot. Itís like a kidís painting made into a movie.
Chris: The script, the direction, the wardrobe, the props —BloodRayneís swords are rounded at the end! — nobody cares.
Matt: The movieís just this collection of perfunctory elements that an alien might think should be in a human film... What Iím saying is that Uwe Boll may not be human.
Mike: One, in particular, might have been the worst movie I have ever seen in my whole life. And I'm sure everyone at this table would agree.
Rich: No, it's not the worst of my whole life. It's bad though. Things. Things! How can you ever say that after seeing Things?
Jessi: You know...you know, Things had redeeming qualities. This movie had no redeeming qualities.
Mike: Things is more entertaining. This is just loathsome.
"...once in a while there is a movie so bad that it takes you to a place beyond good and evil and abandons you there, shivering and alone."
"Hey, donít blame me... I had nothing to do with writing or filming this.
I didnít put together a storyboard with 'RALPHIE HUMPS MANNEQUIN' on it.
That was someone else.
Possibly Satan himself."
Noah Antwiler: It's tough when you're judging bad movies, because now we're talking about riffability here, like how much fun you can make of this movie.
Miles Antwiler: I always put it in like two categories - So Bad, It's Good and just So Bad, You Want To Claw Your Eyes Out.
"I would always read about filmmaking in the 70's and the various New Waves and about how they were rebelling against the old Hollywood. I would read that, but I donít think I fully understood until I finally saw Hello, Dolly! This is the most phoney movie I have seen in a long long time. Everything about this movie is fake and false. There are no genuine emotions, only people badly acting emotions. Like a defective stepford wife, they portray creepy toothy grins that show more an alien understanding of happiness than anything real. The characters talk and talk and talk and talk and talk over the most useless crap. Much like Ichi the Killer, I felt like sticking pins in my ears to make the pain go away. This is like four hours of Three's Company crammed into a two and a half hour movie; its too much crap crammed in too long a run time for a movie."
"I have a really hard time not calling Highlander: The Source the single worst movie I have ever seen. Triumph of the Will has always stood out as the iconic terrible film to me, with monstrous content supporting the Nazi party and a pace that makes it feel like a week of torture, but it at least had some artful directing to it. The Russian version of Solaris is boring as all hell, but has something thought-provoking and eerie in its conclusion. Even Tommy Wiseauís The Room, one of the single poorest examples of acting, writing, and directing in modern cinema, is at least so bad itís funny. The Source isnít even something I can laugh at. Itís like somebody systematically set out to make the worst movie of all time and proceeded to accomplish that goal with all the precision efficiency of an unstoppable bad movie-making machine."
"I've heard that this is one of the worst movies ever made, but I thought there might be some kind of "What the hell were they thinking" joy attached to that statement. But not here. There is no joy here. This is just a piece of crap."
"Jesus fuck, there is nothing right with this story. Nothing, on any level. The villains were ridiculous and ill-motivated, at least two of the characters involved were functionally invincible and lacked any sort of real motive, Spider-Man is an asshole, Scarlet Spider just battles things randomly, and weíre supposed to sympathize here with motherfucking Kaine, who just wants the Jackal to love him? This story could only be redeemed if it could somehow kill off the Jackal and Spidercide twenty or so more times within its pages, and even then it would only be somewhat passable. "
"I would set this comic on fire right now if I wasn't afraid that I would breathe in the fumes and grow dumber as a result."
"Itís essentially The Room for comics...Itís tempting to just leave it at that, because really, thereís not much you can add to 'Green Arrowís sidekick does heroin because he canít get a boner' that would make it sound worse than it already is."
—-ComicsAlliance on ''Justice League: The Rise of Arsenal #3′'
"For years it seemed this project would remain a rumor, a cruel trick being played on all the men in their thirties still reading the same things they read in their teens. But after all the fallouts and reconciliations, oustings and bad schedules, the Image founders (kind of) were finally able to come together on Image United #1, just making the deadline for Worst Comics of the Decade... the book goes down about as smooth as a crushed-glass martini."
—John Barker, "The 15 Worst Comics of the Decade"
"You know, sometimes I wish that instead of just a power off button, the Nintendo had a FUCK YOU button that launched the cartridge out fast enough it would shatter on the wall. It might kill a few kids, but once you show how much Wayne's World needs to be destroyed, any judge would rule all the deaths as acceptable losses."
"Aquaman hit store shelves for a full $20 and received such crowning scores as: RUN! RUN! FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, RUUUUUUN!"
—JonTron, on Aquaman: Battle for Atlantis.
"There comes a point when something can no longer be a believable mistake and has to be a result of intentional malice. Double Dragon II: Wander of the Dragons runs screaming past that point within the first five minutes and then proceeds to spend the next couple of hours desperately trying to ruin everything you ever loved about Double Dragon, video games in general, and the concept of happiness itself."
—Hardcore Gamer's Nikola Suprak, on Double Dragon II: Wander of the Dragons.
"You don't play it. It happens to you. You survive it. Maybe you pick up a few entertaining stories along the way. Maybe you just walk away with a hefty dose of emotional trauma. Either way, you're still out 50 bucks and your last pale glimmer of faith in humanity".
"Perhaps the plan was to release this game right at the start of the year so that it might be forgotten about by now, or at least eclipsed by something even worse like, for example, a game that comes with free crystal meth. Yes, it's Amy, an uncontroversial choice perhaps, but my god, there's offensively bad and then there's the kind of bad that dresses up like Hitler and starts doing impressions of people with cerebral palsy."
—Zero Punctuation, "Best and Worst of 2012"
"We usually refrain from swearing in our reviews, but I must emphatically say that Revelations 2012 is the worst piece of fucking shit I have played on the job, and they can stick that on Metacritic."
—Jim Sterling, on Revelations 2012. note
"At one point Postal III tasks you with collecting HIV-infected cats; I'd rather do that in real life than play this awful game again."
"...I mentioned it made little kids cry. Upon further review, I was wrong: it makes grown men weep like babies."
Shmorky: Trying to tell someone that they're playing this game 'wrong' is like trying to tell someone that they're playing in the sewers wrong.
Lowtax: If they're playing the game, yes, it's inherently wrong.
Shmorky: It's like trying to tell someone they jumped off a cliff the wrong way.
"I hate this game. I hate it more than I have ever hated anything before in my life. I hate the endlessly looping ten seconds of music, I hate the way Chu can stand on thin air and fall through solid objects, and I hate that such a cool name was wasted on a game like this. Most of all, I hate that I can't give this game the score it deserves because the SA rating system won't let me use scientific notation."
—Taylor "Psychosis" Bell, on Master Chu and the Drunkard Hu
"It's actually pretty rare that we run across a game this bad... I'd rather run over it, and I'd definitely back up just to make sure it was totally destroyed."
—IGN on Extreme Paintbrawl
"Ubisoft and AMA Studios didn't drop the ball on this; they weren't even invited to the sport in which the ball exists."
—GamesRadar, on Fighters Uncaged
"I hate every second of this. Everything about this song is unpleasant. This actually smells bad. I can smell this through my speakers... This is what all pop music must sound like to people who hate pop music. And if you DO hate all pop music, I can't even imagine what this sounds like to you. To you, this must sound like armpit farts and the screams of innocent children."
"Lady CaCa once again proved that sheís the Master of Shit Decisions when she decided that it was a good idea to record a song called 'Do What You U Want' with a well-known piece of turd predator who has done what he wants with the bodies of underage girls including emptying his piss bag on them...That ILLEGAL ass gross video looks like a no-budget porn and it makes me want to point to the eyes on a doll and tell my therapist thatís where Lady CaCa violated me. But you know, I donít understand this kind of HIGH ART... I mean, some of the worldís biggest filmmakers loved it:
ďI saw myself in it. A triumph!Ē Ė Roman Polanski
ďAn inspirational piece of art! Bravo!Ē Ė Woody Allen
ďNeeded more naked twinks, but other than that, itís a masterpiece!Ē - Bryan Singer
—Michael K., DListed
"The most jarring gap in quality in Doctor Whoís history. The most colossal lapse of judgment in Doctor Whoís history. A story that had everything riding on it that just completely blew it. Every single thing about this story is a bad idea. Itís outright impossible to figure out what they were thinking. On top of that, you have the Doctor and Peri in a creepy domestic violence/Stockholm syndrome scene. No wonder the series was cancelled."
"Congratulations, Smallville: You have taught me to hate. I donít know if I can make it. Seriously, can I tap out? Is there a panic button we can push? Can someone stop this crazy thing?"
"They say an infinite number of monkeys and an infinite number of typewriters could eventually reproduce all the works of William Shakespeare, but this? Three monkeys, no typewriters, just a whole lot of masturbation and shit-throwing would've accomplished the same thing. There is a vault where copies of all the greatest works of our culture are placed so that they'll never be lost. I am petitioning to have an even deeper one made for this so it can never be found."
"The show had, and continues to have, a very small fanbase—Enterprise was consistently near the bottom of the Nielsen ratings every week—but at the same time, that fanbase is very, very vocal. Which is why, if you had nothing to go on other than internet discussion, you might conclude that Enterprise wasn't really that bad. I mean, the first season was good, right? The fourth season was amazing, wasn't it?
It's time to set the record straight: Enterprise sucked. It sucked from day one. It sucked until the bitter end. It's a miracle it lasted four seasons—that's three and a half more than it deserved. It's easily one of the worst dramatic programs I've ever watched."
"Did you ever smell something so bad that you wanted everyone around you to smell it too? That's how I feel about Shark Night 3D. It's so bad that I almost want other people to see it too so that they can see just how bad a movie can be. The only thing is, I'm not that cruel. I would never recommend anyone waste their money on this movie. It would only encourage the filmmakers to make more movies."
"I understand that it can be difficult to make an quality film on a shoestring budget. I realize that time and money restraints often mean that scenes have to be changed or cut at the last minute, so that the final product is often far different from what the creators had in mind when filming began. Indeed, I sympathize with the legions of young filmmakers out there who can't resist the camera's siren song despite lacking the funds, support, or talent necessary to bring their vision to life. But man, there is a fucking limit."
"Do yourself a favor and avoid this game like the plague. In fact, avoid it like you would avoid something that you avoid more than the plague."
"To be quite frank, this story cannot be described with any word(s) associated with/related to/have anything to do with anything positive in any way whatsoever. It is a waste of space, which is certainly saying something, taking into consideration the fact that it is posted online and therefore physically cannot actually take up space, much less be a waste of space.
"Therefore, let me congratulate you on being one of the very few who have managed to accomplish this daunting task. Your Fanfiction, in short, was simply just that terrible. I, in all honestly, simply can't fathom the reason such an atrocity would even be posted on this site. Before you think about writing more, I strongly suggest, no, scratch that, DEMAND that you achieve some level of writing skill that could be deemed somewhat tolerable, or at least bearable, if at all possible.
"This demand is not only for my sake, but for the sake of all Fan Fiction fans out there that use and love this site. Please don't abuse such a wonderful thing by posting utter garbage. It's a disgrace."
"You know what? Fuck you Sonic, fuck you Tails, fuck you balls, fuck you Aquatic Base, fuck you Shadow, fuck you Silver, fuck you laser fence, fuck you Elise, FUCK EVERYONE! FUCK THIS GAME!"
—TheHelldragon, Sonic The Hedgehog (2006) Playthrough, THD Edition: Sonic (Part 13).
"It's not often a horror film reaches into the depths of my soul, grabs my heart and shatters it into a billion terrified pieces, and rarer still that a sequel manages the trick. But Sex and the City 2 managed to do just that, proving that Michael Patrick King, that baron of the grim and terrifying, didn't blow all his tricks in the 2008 horror masterpiece."
"Simon Cowell couldn't find words strong enough to berate this game."
"Watching a movie this pathetic can really mess with your head. First of all you just feel trapped. You could walk out, yes, but you feel compelled, as if by a demonic force or internalized masochism, to sit there and witness how bad it can be. It starts to feel like an endurance test. Like maybe if you can handle the abuse you could handle actual torture someday if you're ever kidnapped by terrorists or some other bad guys. And then you just get depressed and wonder if your ability to detect if something is funny or not is permanently destroyed. What if nothing is ever funny again? What if the movie has obliterated your sense of humor? And then it's over—thankfully it's only about 80 minutes long, even if it feels like 80 days—you leave and go outside into the sunlight and get an ice cream and suddenly everything's okay again."
—Dave White, on Vampires Suck.
"I will not mock it in detail, for the same reason I wouldn't criticize the spatial arrangement of an inmate's wall-feces. It wouldn't be constructive criticism."
—Bryan Lambert, You Are Dumb.
"It can be described as "existent" and "on the internet", however please do not confuse it with Goatse, which satisfies both criteria [and] is a far superior piece."
—Encyclopedia Dramatica, on Electric Retard.
"On Monday, February 8, 1999, a horrific offense to humanity was committed. This offense, yet unmatched in scope, was so sinister in scale that it elicits emotions of terror and panic just at the very thought of it. This offense was the herald of the downfall of civilization. This offense was so horrific that the human mind can barely even hope to fathom it. This horrific offense of which I speak was the first strip of "Look What I Brought Home", as it spawned itself from the deepest layers of hell.
And, directly from these deep layers of hell, was a joke about an exposed nipple. After this badly drawn horror, almost demonic by nature, the world stood and waited, hoping that nothing more would emerge. But, 2 days after the beginning of this comic, another strip was written. And, as this gruesome terror of a webcomic continued, the world witnessed in horror as jokes about farts and rape were made.
At last, on February 22, 1999, the world's fate was sealed. A sight is witnessed on this date that is so disgusting that any human being who witnesses it would immediately lose any trace of sanity. Bess was seen naked. I would not recommend clicking on that link if you value your sanity."
—N106, Bad Webcomics Wiki
"Here, [...] stupid and vicious and offensive and juvenile and brutal and stupid join together like a multiple-robot Transformer and destroy anything in the universe that is even close to being good or nice or true or honest".
"This is truly one of the most unplayable piles of excrement on the face of the planet. Don't buy it, don't give it a try, don't even look at the cover art! In fact, I recommend never to watch this review ever again as its only purpose is to showcase its shittiness and by seeing this abomination displayed more than once might result in complications."
"Just thinking about writing a review for this movie gave me a headache. Accurately representing the shittiness that is "Don't Be Scared" almost certainly requires something more along the lines of a novel. (And of course, it would be a pretty shitty novel.)"
—Black Horror Movies, on Don't Be Scared.
"I highly recommend seeing this film, as it will elevate the standing of every bad film you ever see."
What works: Holy insert-your-favorite-explicative-here...
What doesn't: ... this got made! And is going to series!
"I literally cannot think of one good thing about this game, other than it has an end. [...T]he only reason its existence can be justified is that it could be held as an example of what not to do during game development."
—Bennett the Sage, on Call of Juarez: The Cartel.
"This. Is. It! The worst! The absolute WORST! No story, no character, no plot... just pain! Pure, concentrated pain! There has never been anything this bad in the history of badness! It should be studied! It should be analyzed! It is... pure evil! I don't know whether to give it to a scientist to examine or a priest to exorcise. I mean, it is remarkable. It is absolutely remarkable! Even the closing credits are hurting me! Everything about this movie is just plain HORRENDOUS!"
"Forget "The God Delusion," "God is Not Great," or the writings of Epicurus, this episode is the greatest evidence that logically disproves an all-powerful, all-knowing and all-loving God. If Epicurus was alive today, his famous quote would read "Is God willing to prevent "Fear Her," but not able? Then he is not omnipotent. Is he able, but not willing? Then he is malevolent. Is he both able and willing? Then whence cometh "Fear Her?" Is he neither able nor willing? Then why call him God?"
"The Cavern not only surpasses Bear as the worst horror film I've ever seen, but may well be the worst film period. I reviewed racist, sexist, unfunny, and downright unpleasant films before, but this is a special kind of film: It's unwatchable. I don't care if it's low-budget, that doesn't mean you forget basic principles of lighting or cinematography. I know the film's creators though they were being iterative, but that's because no one was dumb enough to do it before. The film has an ugly, over-produced digital look, the script is woefully incomprehensible nonsense, and the ending is reprehensible. Even at 80 minutes, this is sheer torture that makes your home movies look professional by comparison. Every single copy of The Cavern should be thrown in the deepest, darkest pit imaginable, so that it never blights a TV screen ever again! I hope you have a happy and safe Halloween."
—Film Brain, on The Cavern.
"... I have seen dog shit more appealing than this load of rhinoceros spooge. So if you happen to walk by this anime at your local store, do yourself a favor and keep walking. Don't even stop to look at the box, it's not worth it."
—American Anime Otaku, on Eiken.
"'Threshold' is an episode of Star Trek: Voyager. And it is the only indefensible hour in the entire history of Star Trek. I don't mean it's the only hour I can't defend. I mean it's the only hour nobody can defend. And nobody does. This is important, because while there are worse things in the world than Star Trek, there is no fanbase more diverse in opinion. And they all hate 'Threshold'."
—Bryan Lambert, You Are Dumb.note
"If the music were merely mediocre, I could forgive it, but the whole disc is just jaw-droppingly appalling at any moment. [...]I'm shocked and appalled that they produced something THIS bad."
"Do not read this comic. Unless you are doing it purely for the spectacle of it, you have nothing to gain from it. In any other comic, I would tell people to check it out only so you could learn what mistakes you should avoid. But in this case, there is no point. There is not a single mistake here that you could not sidestep by using the most basic of common sense. What could you possibly learn from this? [...]
"This comic tops the chart in every criteria this website uses to gauge the value of its review subjects. The worst art, most awful writing, most insane plot, biggest Mary-Sue characters ever, craziest and most insufferable author. In short: This truly is the worst comic ever made."
—The Bad Webcomics Wiki, on Sonichu.
"It's rare to see a piece of shit that actually looks and sounds like a piece of shit. It's kind of exciting!"
"Very seldom do I come across an anime that I can honestly say I didn't enjoy at least a little bit. In this case, however, I had to stomach each episode as its flaws grew more and more grotesque. Each sliver of hope for redemption was spat on as the plot continued to drive itself into obscurity and chaotic pointlessness. Should you come across this title, do the world a favor and bury the DVD where no one else will have to suffer its torment."
—Nihon Review's Godai, on the anime adaption of Koi Koi Seven.
The Upside: At some point, it ends.
The Downside: The true downside of the film is that it even exists.
—Kate Erbland, on In-APP-ropriate Comedy.
"It is memorably awful. It is stunningly awful. It is so awful that we are fortunate that "awful" has an adverbial use that means "very" or "extremely." This movie is awfully awful."
—Neil Genzlinger, on In-APP-ropriate Comedy.
"Even at the base price of $4, this game is an absolute waste of money. I've lost more cash than this and been more satisfied with how I used it, because at least I knew somewhere someone was buying something with it that wasn't Final Fantasy: All the Bravest."
—Nikola Suprak, on Final Fantasy: All the Bravest.
"The big question when finally sitting down to watch A Sound of Thunder is is it the disaster that everything about the film would seem to indicate it is? The answer is a resounding yes."
—Richard Scheib, on the 2005 film adaptation of A Sound Of Thunder.
"There are some movies that are so bad, theyíre good. Hercules Unchained comes to mind. Then there are some movies that are so incredibly bad, theyíre not even good. "Manos" The Hands of Fate comes to mind. But at least you can enjoy the MST3K version of Manos. I canít remember any of the riffs from Lost Continent because I was so focused on the nothing happening in the movie. Lost Continent wasnít just bad, it was wrong. It made me angry. It makes me want to throw a large, heavy object through my TV screen."
"Superbabies couldn't be worse if it had been written and produced by actual babies, and I mean babies who are retarded and who hate movies."
"As far as Hasbro is concerned, "There never was a Dinobot combiner." While the most likely explanation for this comment is that this particular Hasbro representative is unaware of an obscure UK only DVD pack-in comic it's also possible Hasbro has tried to erase "The Beast Within" from canon entirely using special canon cannons... Errors: This comic was produced."
"This film isn't one of those examples of films like The Room or Troll 2, where you can say 'Oh, it's so bad it's good'... No... this is the GARBAGE PAIL KIDS of Disney films... And in all the other bad films I saw, there were some salvageable positive aspects about them... But here, there is NOTHING salvageable... The Wild just constantly TAKES... and TAKES and TAKES AND TAKES until there's nothing LEFT OF YOU!''
"Itís not good, guys. Itís terrible, awful, horrible, dreadful, unpleasant, horrid, repulsive, and Iím running out of synonyms."
"Batman & Robin is the only occasion I have ever come out of a film feeling so ripped off by what I had just seen that I stood and told the people queuing up in line to buy tickets for the next session not to waste their money."
"With all disrespects, Master of Martial Hearts is such a putrid and poorly executed anime, that it easily tops as one of the worst anime shows I have ever seen. It's not even an anime like Garzey's Wing, where you can sit in front of the TV with your friends and make fun of it for an hour. That novelty wears off within the first five minutes.[...]
"Damn this anime and damn the twelve year old piece of shit who made this crap!"
— American Anime Otaku on Master of Martial Hearts
Shmorky: They should call this "Rude Dudes"! Yeah!
Lowtax: Yeah, they should. They should call this "Delete Me.exe".
Shmorky: Yeah! *laughs* They should call this... *imitates belly laughing*
Lowtax: They should call this "A Shit Game by Fuckers".
— Richard "Lowtax" Kyanka playing Flapper Racers
"In my opinion, a game is much worse than another if you can tell the author spent a lot of time on it, possesses a certain level of programming skill or knowledge, and still managed to create something that looks and plays horribly. Anybody can download a warezed version of Gamemaker and pump out a 100 kb exe file of a fart sound accompanied by a flashing red and white screen, but it's apparent there was no time or dedication put into it. It's the combination of talent, time, dedication, and insanity that makes a bad game bad, if that makes any sense. It's difficult for me to explain because it's so subjective and counter-intuitive to imply something can only be the worst by being better than something else."
— Richard "Lowtax" Kyanka on why he considers Flapper Racers to be the worst game he's ever played.
"If you hate someone, and I mean HATE someone, give them this game as a gift, in the hopes that they'll play it, because that way you can say to them "haha, you're an idiot who plays Big Rigs"
"This book doesn't deserve a number. It doesn't even deserve to be listed. To list it implies some value, even as a marker for the lows of the series. But this book doesn't deserve the attention it will garner just by virtue of its position. This isn't a case of "So bad it's good," this is "So bad I want to vomit, quick get me that bowl from the Go Eat Worms! game." Chicken Chicken very nearly ended the blog two years ago, but I ultimately decided to push forward. I don't know what else to say except it really is that bad."
I was hesitant to put this game on a worst game list because it's not a game; it's a congealed failure.
—Yahtzee on Ride To Hell Retribution
The WB's claim that The Help is a "biting satire" is only half true. No, it's not a satire, but yes, it does indeed bite.
—The Boston Globe, on the short-lived TV series The Help
The fun never stops with Super Boxing. That is only because you can't stop something that doesn't start.
"It is done, but the evil will never truly go away. This is the worst animated film I have ever seen, hands down, no comparison. Its scars are left deep inside of me, Why did I do it? For you. I did it for you because I know that I have seen the worst. I know that no other form of animation will ever be worse than Foodfight"
—The Nostalgia Critic, on Foodfight!.
