Best Comment Of The Day in response to The Worst And Best Super Bowl Commercials:

“The oddest thing about all this, of course, is that the vast majority of ad-makers are men. What low opinions they have of themselves and their capacity for human connection.” But see how genius it is! Set up low expectations for what you’re capable of and then go around doing whatever the hell you want, consequence free! Super Bowl ads, I’mma let you finish but patriarchy is the greatest marketing tool of ALL time.

Reminder: Rather than emailing us your daily comment nominations, we’d like you to submit them to the Comment of the Day tag page. So send us your nominations — complete with the outstanding comment’s URL — and tag your nomination #cotd. (Replying to a comment with “#cotd” does not work.)

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.
