Midweek Comments

I’m sorry I’ve been missing the Comment o’ the Week as my Fridays have been crazy, but I just read this comment from Elyse (who is a writer, and thus not eligible for COTW) and it made me laugh so hard and for so long that I had to highlight it:

Your condition is incurable.” Then turning to their husbands (if only they were so lucky with such a crippling deformity) sympathetically and asking them if there’s anything he could prescribe to make the suffering husband more comfortable…. knowing that there is nothing more painful and nauseating than having a hideously scarred wife.

Band name: Instant Flaccidity and the Empurplements.

And from ages ago, my friend John insisted Yossarian get special mention for this:
