COTW: Sexy Jill Edition

Today is the first day of August, which means that right now around the world, people are flipping their Skepchick and Skepdude calendars over — from sexy pendant-wearing Chillzero to sexy wet-headed Jill, and from sexy weight-lifting CriticalThanking to sexy JREF intern Chris. Rowr! That is all.

So, the Comment o’ the Week! Durnett came close with this gem that pretty well sums up Skepchick, but sadly that was beaten by a comment that actually was not even crafted by a Skepchick commenter (that I know of). In fact, this week’s winning comment comes to us from an unnamed Chinese restaurant somewhere in Southern California:

Just after the quake while my coworkers and I were finishing up a particularly bland Chinese food lunch the first fortune cookie opened did say “As long as your feet are firmly planted on the ground nothing can shake you.”

We salute you, anonymous fortune cookie writer! Not only have you won the Skepchick COTW, but also you’ve beaten the previous funniest fortune, “Help! I’m trapped inside a fortune cookie factory!” Your prize is a position with Skepchick crafting appropriately hilarious cookie fortunes. Please get in touch, thanks.

  6. The Unnamed fortune cookie thanks you and it was “Peking Restaurant” (lots of thought went into naming that place) in the frontier town of Ventura California. Check them out won’t you? They deliver! As long as you live within three miles of the restaurant.

  7. My favorite fortune is taped to my monitor, it reads:

    “Believe only in the fortune cookie; disregard all other fortune telling units.”
