Comment o’ the Week . . . and more!

The prize this week goes to an April Fool’s Day Special, posted as the first response to that day’s Quickies:

“…a daring group of feisty young zoologists…”

Sure, it’s easy to be “daring” and “feisty” when you work in a sexy field like zoology. It’s harder when you are something boring like an astronaut or firefighter.

Congratulations, durnett! Enjoy your prize: a copy of Kevin Trudeau‘s latest book: Scams, Cons, and Moneymaking Schemes I Don’t Want You to Know About.

Since this post is all about celebrating you, the reader, I’ll close with a YouTube sent to me by Joshua — an educational nature documentary about my favorite animal. Enjoy.

  1. I’m happy to cede my crown to durnett this week. Well done!

    (I’d have said “cede my tiara” but I didn’t want to risk offending anyone sensitive without taking advantage of the new “Ask a Gay Guy” feature)

  2. What an honor! Who knew that smartassery could actually get you anything other than asskickery.

    I’ll get to Kevin Trudeau’s new book as soon as I answer this letter from the deposed Nigerian prime minister. This guy can sure use my help!
