Tuesday comments are too too:

Best Comment Of The Day, in response to Fighting For The Right To Choose ... Anti-Choice License Plates: "Didn't the members of Wham! have those license plates in the '80s?" And!: "They can have their 'CHOOSE LIFE' plates if I can have my 'PLEASE FOR THE LOVE OF GOD GET AN ABORTION' plates." • Best Comment Of The Day, in response to Sperm Bank Offers Celebrity Look-Alike Donors: "Phew! This is so much easier than looking for a Gary Busey doppleganger in real life." • Best Comment Of The Day, in response to To Wax Or Not To Wax: Advice From The Wurtzel School Of Incredibly Depressing Womanity: "This reads like a medieval morality play in which Harrison has been cast as Ideational Everyman and Wurtzel as Patriarchy's Deluded Tool; Paglia will show up in Acte II as Blame, smiting us for our inadequacies as allegorical representatives of femynism and besmirched bodies; followed by Greer as MaddenedDoublets, who declares that "Oure hairied Quyms haveth it Coming." In the final Acte, all of the characters descend into loud and intemperate squabbling, shoving Everywoman about and tearing at her crotch, until Death arrives at the gym and kills everyone on stage and in the audience.
The end."

Special Mention Comment Of The Day, in response to Teenage Girls Not Eating, Convinced They're Fat: "I'm a teenager and I have several friends, all perfectly healthy, who think that they are overweight. It is extremely frustrating to try and fail to convince them otherwise. I wish I could make them realize that they are beautiful on the outside as well as on the inside. "
