Greetings and happy Friday, everyone! Before we get to Comment o’ the Week, a few announcements:
Tomorrow is Pi Day and we’re celebrating in Boston with a Pi(e) Fight! More info here.
Monday is the next Skeptics in the Pub, with author William Lobdell. I’m excited and you should be, too. Info here.
I banned TrueSkeptic because he’s long used Skepchick as a platform from which to deliver blustery, egotistical diatribes about 9/11 conspiracy theories and I just couldn’t take it anymore when he directly insulted my intelligence. Once more, the Commenter Code of Conduct is found here, and everyone is reminded that while we allow heated discussion and the occasional insult, if said insult is unfunny and directed at the girl with her finger on the big red button, that’s a bannin’. Goodbye, TrueSkeptic, you will be hazily recollected from time to time thanks to your ridiculous argument ad familia.
Okay, on to the Comment! O! The! Week!
Let’s face it, one guy pretty much had this week wrapped up. Congratulations to Expatria for this gem, offered in response to news that Iceland inhabitants love their elves:

What this elf article fails to note: The three percent of Icelanders who have seen an elf perfectly overlaps with the three percent of Icelanders who are Bjork
The only thing that might have improved that comment would have been an accompanying Venn diagram.
Expatria! Send me your Afternoon Inquisition suggestion, which will appear magically in this space on Wednesday.
The rest of you! Nominate your favorite comments by quoting them and writing “COTW!” in your reply.
