Reader Roundup: Oprah Goes To Australia, All Aussies Get Is This Lousy Bill

Today’s best comments, at prices that can’t be beat!

Best Comment Of The Day in response to OkCupid, “Where Post-Racial Dreams Go To Die”:

Obviously he needs to get up with “Can I Touch Your Hair” guy and “The Contrast Of Our Skin Is So Hot” Guy, and let’s throw in some “Fried Chicken And Watermelon Jokes are Hilarious” Guy.
They will be The League Of Extremely UnExtraordinary Not Gentlemen.

Best Comment Of The Day, also in response to OkCupid, “Where Post-Racial Dreams Go To Die”:

Wow. What a dickwad. And it’s okay for me to refer to him as a dickwad because my stepdad and two guys I hung out with in college were dickwads.

Best Comment Of The Day in response to Harassed Sideline Reporter Forced To Deny Provoking Horny Players:

From now on, every guy I see wearing a hockey jersey, I’m going to drop my gloves and challenge him to a fight. Guys wearing a football jersey – you are getting tackled to the ground when you least expect it. A fella wearing an Ed Hardy shirt – I’m throwing a drink in your face or slapping you across the face. Perhaps both if your hair is slicked back or you’re wearing sunglasses when it’s dark out.
Ugh, slut shaming strikes again. So would she be respected if she started dressing like Diane Sawyer?

Best Comment Of The Day, also in response to Harassed Sideline Reporter Forced To Deny Provoking Horny Players:

Jesus Christ half of these comments make me want to put my face through my computer screen. You don’t have to respect her as a reporter, you don’t have to approve of her career trajectory, you don’t have to like the way she’s dressed. NONE of this changes the fact that she has a right to not be sexually harassed. All these comments with “No one should be sexually harassed but…” are sickening. No one should be sexually harassed period. Jets players need to be reprimanded and they need to grow the fuck up.

Best Comment Of The Day in response to Lady Gaga Arrives At The Airport Ready For Her Strip Search:

I see she was just having one of those “flesh-toned underwear set, half-a-metallic-trenchcoat, ripped fishnets, hoof shoes, utility belt” days. We’ve all been there, am I right, ladies?

Best Comment Of The Day in response to Oprah’s Vacation Will Cost Australian Taxpayers $2.8 Million:

Australia is like that cliche girl in romantic movies who doesn’t believe she is beautiful and smart although she obviously is. Here, let me play the part of the dashing, yet sensitive and kind, hero:
“Australia, you have awesomeness in your own right. You do not need to pay to import it from other countries. Mel Gibson was not your fault*.”
