You were a violent bunch this week, readers, but luckily, you were also funny. This week’s COTW goes to swordsbane for one particular line in a longer comment:
Iâ€™m an Atheist and donâ€™t believe in God, but every so often, I entertain the notion of what would happen if he did exist, and although I ask myself what I would do if I had my life to do over again, I usually come to the conclusion that I would do pretty much the same things, but I would punch more people.
From frisbeetarian in response to a senate candidate’s comment that legalizing same-sex marriage will lead to men marrying horses:
I think the retort to the comment about the horses would be: If this bill passes we will include a provision that requires all horses to wear burkas so those Republicans wonâ€™t be so tempted.
From Zapski, who wants to help marilove in exactly the way a recent iPhone App wanted to cure warts:
If you take a picture of your esophagus and send it to me, Iâ€™ll think about it healing really really hard for a modest fee.
From Bookitty, whose boots are not made for walking:
I need to kick the director of the AAP in the nuts. I know that sounds like an overly simple solution but hear me out.
See, I would prefer to give every pediatrician who supports this bullshit a swift boot to the balls/ovaries. But that would take time.
Not only that, some of these misguided pediatricians are also doing good things â€“ vaccinations, check ups, etc. The force with which my foot would meet their reproductive organs would keep them from doing this good work. Possibly for several days.
In order to avoid that (save the children!) I will be happy to give the director a â€œritualâ€ punt to the balls with my â€œritualâ€ steel-toed boots. Preferably on youtube so that his reaction will make the biggest impact on the rest.
