Comment Of The Day: George Orwell May Be Writing For Us Weekly

In today's Midweek Madness, we learned this week's tabloids are riddled with doublespeak. Luckily, vin_rouge was able to translate:

So this week in mag-speak (like Orwell's new-speak, but bitchier and even more obtuse)...

'Accept your body' means 'Accept that your body is wrong'

'Embrace your flaws' means 'You have FLAWS damn you'

'Gossip' means 'Spiteful, judgemental bullsh*t'

And 'journalist' means 'you would actually be higher up on the moral scale if you sold crack to school children'.

As you've probably noticed, we're changing the Comment of the Day format a bit. From now on we'll only be highlighting one comment per day, so that user can claim all the bragging rights. We'd still like you to submit nominations to the Comment of the Day tag page. Just send the outstanding comment's URL and tag your nomination #cotd. (Replying to a comment with "#cotd" does not work.)

Use #trollpatrol to report comments that you feel the editors/mods should be aware of. Try not to respond to/approve/promote trollish comments in the threads — instead, just post the comment on the #trollpatrol page, the same way you'd post a comment on #groupthink or on the #cotd page, and the editors/mods will take care of it.
