Comment! O! The! Week!

Is it Friday? Already? I guess that means it’s time for a short-and-sweet Comment o’ the Week! I’ve got a whole lot going on this week, as I’m sure some of you have guessed (particularly those who follow me on Twitter and Facebook), so I’ll cut to the chase. I didn’t consider any comments left in response to this month’s birthday challenge, since that winner will get an actual prize at a later date. So, this week’s winner was nominated multiple times for this comment, in response to an Afternoon Inquision about food:

@Detroitus: It’s true. I saw a non-peer-reviewed case study published last month about this very topic. According to their findings, baptism can reduce the nutrient content of babies’ souls by as much as 30%! Although I hear the nutrients are preserved by the flash-baptismal process. So if you can’t afford fresh baby souls, buy canned. Don’t get sucked in to that brand name nonsense though. “Baby No Name” is just as good as “Cannibal’s Choice”.

Congratulations, Kimbo Jones! For your helpful and economically-savvy post, you win a lifetime’s supply of Heathen Heaven Minced Baby Souls, canned in baby juice for freshness that lasts long after the apocalypse.

Just a reminder that this Monday is the next Boston Skeptics in the Pub, with guest speaker Sid Rodrigues! It’s free and fun, so be there!

  1. Thanks, Kimbo. I’ve been wasting money on brand name baby souls for years. I’ll start buying the no-frills brands. Is it worth it to buy in bulk, or should I stick to single servings?

  2. What you guys need is the Soul Catcher 3000. It allows you to get baby souls for free. You climb up on the roof above a bedroom where someone is having sex with a condom. The soul comes flying in, but is foiled because the condom prevents conception. In this moment of confusion, you can grab it with the Soul Catcher 3000.

  3. Yay! When can I expect the delivery? I don’t want them to taste all aluminum-y.

    @LBB: Well like toilet paper and tampons, it doesn’t make sense to just buy one of something you’re definitely going to need more of.

  4. @Chew:

    It’s carried by all the finest retailers. You can tell which retailers are the finest, because they’ll be carrying it.
