Comment of the Day: In Houston, It's Machetes Instead of Samurai Swords
We have some great commenters here on Hair Balls, and it's time we paid some damn attention to them.
So we'll be highlighting a Comment of the Day each morning, from the previous day's work. Maybe two comments, even.
This will all be determined by a highly rigorous scientific formula involving wit, clarity and whatever else we feel like at the moment.
We told you of one Texan who settled an argument with his stepdaughter's boyfriend with a samurai sword. One reader noted Houston has a different exotic weapon of choice.
You'd be amazed how many cases of hand-to-hand combat in our very own Houston involve machetes... several weekly are seen at Ben Taub. They seem to come in waves. Haven't seen any samurai sword action lately though.
