COTW: Silver Linings

Today’s Comment o’ the Week is a winner not just for making me laugh, but for making me laugh at a topic that previously inspired in me only pure Hulk rage. That topic? The recent news that an acupuncturist testified that three men could not have committed the rape for which they were already convicted because a god damn acupuncturist said a small capillary in each one’s ear was unbroken, meaning that none had ever had sex with a woman before. My initial response to this news was WTFARRRRRRRRRRRDIEDIEDIE, but B Hitt managed to find the silver lining:

Tiny bit of solace: that’s 3 more people that know for a fact that accupuncturists are full of shit.

Well . . . four, if you count the victim, but the point stands and the COTW is awarded. Congrats, B Hitt!

Happy Friday, everyone!
