Yar, ’tis Talk Like a Pirate Day but I just can’t keep that up through an entire CotW post. Sarrrrrrry.
Before I get to the big show, I’d like to make note of the fact that Donna, who has written 250 posts on Skepchick since December of 2006, will be scaling back a bit on posting. From now on, she’ll only be posting book reviews and author interviews, as well as the occasional Afternoon Inquisition. Also, we’re hoping that in the future we can work with Donna to help enact some of her very cool ideas for raising money for secular charities through crafts.
All the Skepchicks been talking a lot lately about how to keep this site functioning as a fun, positive environment, and a big part of that is making sure that the writers themselves are having fun and staying positive. I think the new arrangement should do just that.
Okay, on to the CotW!
This week, a few people nominated ekimbrough for posting a YouTube link, but sadly I have to reject that because . . . well because I can. Though you should go check that out anyway.
Therefore, the winner this week is the ever-amusing LBB, for this gem:

Instead of just tackling, I think we need Evolution vs. Creationism mudwrestling! Except the Evolutionist is allowed to change tactics in response to conditions like the size of the opponent, the viscosity of the mud, and increasing levels of fatigue. The Creationist gets one god-given move that must be relied on exclusively, no matter how ineffective it is.
Is anyone else picturing Christopher Hitchens and Dinesh D’Souza grappling half-naked in a kiddie pool of filth? No? Just me? Okay then.
LBB, for your valiant efforts I reward you with the above mental image, may it ever haunt your dreams.
