Comment o’ the Week!

Congratulations to pretty much all the Skepchick commenters this week for being really, really entertaining. Now that we’re cutting back on Afternoon Inquisitions, there is no prize this week but I’m happy to hear your recommendations for possible COTW prizes in the comments below.

I know this week’s winner will appreciate the fact that this is the first non-prize-winning COTW in ages. Well done, Expatria!
