Comments: Top five zingers for Russell Crowe

[Editor's note: We're listening to readers, and we occasionally like to feature notable comments we see on]

Poor Russell Crowe. The Oscar-winning actor from "A Beautiful Mind," "Gladiator," "Robin Hood" and "The Insider" had a little kayaking mishap over the weekend. The Coast Guard had to rescue the actor and a friend off the coast of Long Island after they called for help on Saturday night.

Crowe later quipped that the pair "ran out of day." He's doing fine afterward, so the incident got a lot of commenters coming up with some clever remarks and one-liners. We picked five favorites and shared them below.

1. Fightin'

nightowl79: "Fightin' 'round the world!"

reaperfearer: "Was he aboard Tugger?"

2. Explorin'

Apatheist101: "Master and Commander: The Far Side of Long Island."

3. Caught

cpc65: "He was tagged and released back into the wild."

4. Time to ask?

reddog9500: "Even 'Manly Men' need a little help sometimes."

5. Which way?

Shinimicas: "The Gladiator's not much of a navigator ..."

What do you think? Got a better one? We'll be here all week. Post your own thoughts in the comments below or sound off on video via CNN iReport.

    Kayaking is the use of a Kayak for moving across water. Kayaking and canoeing are also known as paddling. Kayaking is distinguished from canoeing by the sitting position of the paddler and the number of blades on the paddle. A kayak is defined by the International Canoe Federation (the world sanctioning body) as a boat where the paddler faces forward, legs in front, using a double-bladed paddle. Most kayaks have closed decks, although "sit-on-top" kayaks are growing in popularity, as are inflatable kayaks which come without decks but which have air chambers surrounding the boat.'*"`

  16. Avast, ye landlubber!

    Kayaking without keeping an eye on where you are and how much daylight you have left. Well, well.
    Was drinking part of this adventure? First time kayaking?
    At least he could call for help. That doesn't happen every time.
    Never turn your back on the ocean.
