This week’s Comment o’ the Week goes to agashem, who calmly responds to Jenny McCarthy thusly:
Can I just say that the quote â€œMy science is Evan.â€ makes not one whit of sense? I have been pissed off that no one interviewing this woman has told her that that sentence is meaningless and could she explain herself more clearly. It irks me that since she is portraying herself as a fierce mommy warrior nobody calls her on statements like that. ARRRRGGHH (BTW I know she has made many more silly statements but this one really gets me. Itâ€™s as nonsensical as saying â€œMy cat is my physics.â€)
Runner-up goes to Imrryr for inventing a useful new god:
@Amy: Procrastinatius (the Roman god of procrastinating) will be most pleased by this sacrificial offering of your time that youâ€™re making today. Just donâ€™t bother to call on Him for any favors in return, Heâ€™s always really slow to respond for some reason.
Praise! Happy Friday, everyone.
