Reader Roundup


What a long, strange week it has been! Thank goddess it’s Friday, and thank the wee yet mighty word nymphs for the highly-impressive best comments of the day:

Best Comment Of The Day, in response to Teacher Sent Home For Being Gay: “Funny, I had gay and totally wonderful English teacher back in the 80s. You know what I learned from him? A lifelong love of literature and language, and that gay people are really no different from straight ones.” • Best Comment Of The Day, in response to Our Nation’s Greatest Enemy: Farting : “See? All that exorbitant funding for DARPA and their advanced weapons research serves the greater good… eventually. The internet. Laser-armed dolphins. Fart blankets. I’ve got my fingers crossed for a cat-poop powered self-cleaning cat box next.” And! “Nothing amps up the romance in a relationship quite like saying, ‘Baby, your farts are like chemical weapons. I’m going to need some military-grade materials just to cope with this.'” • Best Comment Of The Day, in response to New Sex And The City 2 Poster: A Photoshop Oasis:

“Later that day I got to thinking about Photoshop disasters. There are some that and tried and true, like Samantha’s face being cut out and pasted on her body from another photo. There are those that are new and exciting like pushing my eyes far too close together on my face, so much so that I can longer see straight forward. And there are those that are unexpected, that bring you far from where you imagined you’d be, like my phantom leg so disproportionate to my body and so far away from it that it’s practically a cane, and Charlotte’s missing gams, and Miranda’s leaning tower of limbs. But the most exciting photoshop disaster is the one you do of your own life. If you can photoshop the you that you love, well then that’s just fabulous!”


“Know then, that is is the year 2010. The known universe is ruled by Carrie Bradshaw. In this time, the most precious substance in the universe is the shoes. The shoes extend life. The shoes expand consciousness. The shoes are vital to space travel. The Bradshaw Guild and its navigators, whom the shoes have mutated over the last 4 years, use the power of the cosmopolitan, which gives them the ability to fold the fabric of their own bodies. Oh, yes. I forgot to tell you. The shoes exist on only one planet in the entire universe. A desolate, dry planet with vast deserts. Hidden away within the rocks of these deserts are a people known as the Singletons, who have long held a prophecy that a man would come, a Mr Big, who would lead them to true freedom. The planet is Sex and the City, also known as Dune. She who controls the Shoes, controls the universe!”
