Best Comment Of The Day, in response to Everything's Going Swimmingly: "This must be a scene from the new movie Eat, Wait Thirty Minutes, Swim." • Best Comment Of The Day, in response to Science Says: Marry An Older, Less-Educated Man: "Hmmm...sounds more like it was published in the 'European Journal of Dudes Making Shit Up.'" • Best Comment Of The Day, in response to Conde Cutbacks Force Self Editor To Exercise: "With the prowess of the Self world champion photoshop team, you'd think they could digitally insert her into her office. No commute necessary." • Worst Comment Of The Day, in response to Mad Men: "Dick? Is That Your Name?": "How exactly are those costumes horrible and offensive? How are they any different from dressing up as an Indian or an Eskimo? That's what people do for Halloween — dress up as something else that is recognizable to other people. I think it's horrible and offensive that you're taking PC to the level of saying that any costume that's representative of a people that may have faced oppression somewhere (really, hobos?) at some point shouldn't be worn. I guess everyone dressed as a witch is also horrible and offensive to you too? There is a line, but I don't think these cross it." You Say: "Dressing up as an ethnic stereotype is offensive in my thinking. Would it not be offensive to dress a child up as a Jew, a black person or a Mexican? Just because something was common does not mean it isn't wrong. Same rule applies for dressing up as a person without money."
