For those of you who aren’t fruitlessly standing in line for an iPhone that will never be activated, it’s time for the Comment o’ the Week! It was another tough decision this week, mostly because I got nominated. I’ll admit that I was having a particularly clever day — I had spent most of the day hopping over to Pharyngula to post ridiculous comments that might rival the ridiculocity of the Great Catholic Cracker Kerfuffle of ’08, so I was primed and ready to mock Teek’s incredible rainbow snakeskin boots. My comment was:

Fourteen gay rattlesnakes gave their lives for those boots.
Now, as funny as I found myself, I just can’t give myself a prize. That seems unfair and I think I could get sued for that. So, I will instead give the prize to Rystefn for his just-as-funny follow-up:

Their last words were “it was worth it!”
And will you just look at the time stamps on those? I do like a quick wit.
Rystefn, for your efforts you win the COTW and get the following prize, possibly the best I’ve ever given out for COTW: on Saturday, July 26, the Skepchicks will gather in New York City and down a shot in your memory (please note that some shots will be full of juice, but the thought will still be there). However, in order to receive your prize you will have to tell us how the hell to pronounce your name. Right now I’m going with “RICE-tuh-fin,” which sounds like a clever name for a sushi joint.
