Comment o’ the Week! Doped Up Edition
Hey kids, who has two thumbs and is on drugs right now? This girl. Aww yeah.
I’m blaming my current oral surgery-related pain killer high for my inability to artfully construct sentences and/or be clever, so let’s get straight to the prize. This week’s COTW goes to Chasmosaur for responding to news that the NY Times expelled Ben Steinn:

I hacked into the Timesâ€™ servers, and found this draft of Catherin Mathisâ€™ statement:
Quite honestly, we have been uncomfortable with lending him journalistic and cultural credibility since the release of â€œExpelled: No Intelligence Allowedâ€. However, we could find no grounds to dismiss him because of the film, and such an act would have opened us up to dangerous criticism on denying him First Amendment rights.
Now, though, we didnâ€™t feel we could ignore that Mr. Stein so obligingly accommodated us with a legitimate, undeniable reason to remove him from our roster.
One might say that he intelligently designed the situation so we could firmly hold the moral high ground in releasing him from our service.
Congrats, Chasmosaur! Your prize is the ability to choose next Wednesday’s Afternoon Inquisition. Send it in using our contact form.
I’ll also include this runner-up, in which HERD_Dad gives us a good response to anyone encouraging us to play the lotto: My favorite thing to say is â€œevery time I donâ€™t play I win a dollar.â€
