Reader Roundup

Illustration for article titled Reader Roundup

The best comments of the day. And the worst.

Best Comment Of The Day, in response to A Little Pick-Me-Up: "I know you're tired, but keep up the barbie toe." • Best Comment Of The Day, in response to On Style Experts: "I am anxiously awaiting my Spanx brand socks. For shapelier ankles." • Best Comment Of The Day, in response to Prejean Says She Regrets Defiling "Temple" With Topless Pics: "You should see the domes on my basilica." • Worst Comment Of The Day, in response to Small Miracles: "I'm sorry, but EEEWWW!" And: "I am all for allowing people to make there own decisions. But at some point, you have to acknowledge that this is a selfish decision. She wants to have babies. I understand...I want a baby too. But I can't afford a baby, so guess what? I practice 2 forms of birth control. If you can't take care of your children, you shouldn't be having them. Contrary to popular song lyrics, it takes more than love to make the world go 'round." You say: "This is sort of like saying, 'I'm all for the reproductive choice of others, except when I'm not.' And not to be rude, but what do her choices have to do with your choices? She & her husband knew the risks and determined that they were up to them. They sound happy. This is an amazing story in the sense that even when human bodies aren't normative, they can accomplish amazing things, but I don't see why we should be criticizing her choices when we wouldn't stand for such criticism under other circumstances."

I wish that I knew how to decorate cakes, because I just had a brilliant idea to make a Worst Comment of The Day cake. Just a big old white sheet, covered in text like:

"I'm sorry, but..."

"Just sayin.'"

"Fat is just not healthy."

"She needs to eat something!"

"Bla bla something stupid and trolly about restricting reproductive rights"


I would use that cake for smashing. #commenterquips
