Reader Roundup: Hugh Hefner Disney Movie Definitely Has A Happy Ending


Today’s best comments are touching.

Best Comment Of The Day in response to Deep-Pocketed Women Will Pay For Platonic Love:

And this is why “My Agape Don’t Cost a Thing” never took off.

Best Comment Of The Day in response to Why Earn Money When Your Husband Can Do It For You?:

4-years-post-war Britain is definitely the population you want to use for comparative statistics of a social institution that is usually entered into while individuals are in their 20s.

Best Comment Of The Day in response to Hef Dodges The Baby Oil Yeast Infection Issue:

Aw Hugh, what a touching story. Disney should make an animated movie version of this romantic tale for children to watch.

You Say:

Are you really telling me you’ve never seen the 1954 classic 20,000 Broads Under This He?

Best Comment Of The Day in response to 10-Year-Old Girl Discovers Supernova:

In related news: I found a quarter, a dime and some old popcorn under my couch cushions.

Best Comment Of The Day in response to Scalia Says Constitution Doesn’t Protect Women:

hey we have things called legislatures, and they enact things called laws.
Scalia sure gets sassy when his own rights aren’t in question. I hope he ended that interview with a well-executed Z-snap.

Best Comment Of The Day in response to Scalia Says Constitution Doesn’t Protect Women:

Somebody mentioned “superannuated judges who have been there too long?”
For those who might want to actually read what the Constitution has to say:
“Section 1. All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws. “
There isn’t equivocation, or hairsplitting. This isn’t an issue of “interpretation.” It says ALL PERSONS.
Or sure, it then goes on to talk about how only male citizens count for votes or office. Luckily Amendment 19 happened:
“The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of sex.”
So. I’m fairly certain Scalia is…terrible at being a judge.
