If your Classy Southern Lady baby shower features bellerinas and rhinestone eyeliner, you might be boughetto.

Best Comment Of The Day in response to What Was Marie Claire Thinking With This “Fatties” Piece?:

I’m a heroine addict too — my drug of choice is Xena, Warrior Princess, but sometimes I dabble in Wonder Woman.

Best Comment Of The Day, also in response to What Was Marie Claire Thinking With This “Fatties” Piece?:

What I pick up from every single piece of fat hate I see and read is that the haters, who have spent their whole lives (or even just a recent chunk) trying to be thin and thinking it’s a worthwhile goal, see happy fat people and think “I have to follow these strict rules just to live my life normally… why don’t they?”
And they see this, and they realize, maybe subconsciously or at least not in words they can express, that all the work they’ve put in to be thin, all the deprivation and excessive exercise and worry and self-loathing… might actually be pointless. That their idea of what makes a healthy happy person might be wrong. And they lash out.

So send us your nominations via that box — complete with the outstanding comment’s URL — and tag your nomination #cotd. (Replying to a comment with “#cotd” does not work.) From here on out, we’ll mine through the brilliance via the Comment of the Day tag page.

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.
