CotW: Under the Wire

It is 11:30pm ET, meaning I am just barely maintaining my weekly schedule of posting a Friday Comment o’ the Week. I have been drinking copious amounts of yummy juice, a euphemism that was meant to hide the liquid from my nieces and nephews but probably only made it that much more desirable. Please blame the Philly skeptics who started me drinking at 11:30am ET, approximately….yes, 12 hours ago.

That said, I have no energy left for the actual CoTW, so I’ll give it to Im a Hedge, who says something hilarious ever 10 minutes and recently had this response to Sam’s spam penis enlargement comment:

@Sam Ogden:

And all I get is penis enhancement spam.

Okay, this is new to me, but I think I really need it. After I saw your comment, I rushed out and got a can of Spam. What do I do next?

Okay, awesome, congrats Im A Hedge. I’m exhausted and will pass out as soon as I hit the publish button, so your prize is: air. Delicious, free, plentiful air. Not valid underground or inside plastic bags. See store associate for details.

  1. Hm, I mis-wrote due to exhaustion, sorry . . . it was more like “instead of combing through many comments, I’ll give it to the funniest comment I can recall off-hand.” Not to imply that IaaH was anything but deserving of this celebrated award!

  2. I didn’t see you in Philly until 3 so you can’t blame me for your tiredness. In fact, you bailed EARLY if I recall to “be with the parents”. I’m so insulted.

  3. If one could conclude as to the nature of the Skepchicks from a study of the COTW nominations, it would appear that the Skepchicks have an inordinate fondness for penises.

    I’m very excited, end eagerly await the arrival of my new MacBook Air. Rebecca, I’m sure you still have my address from the most recent restraining order.
