Comment of the Day: Tattoos Will Be the Secret to Extra Retirement-Home Pudding
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.
Our Sean Pendergast provided a look at the five worst NBA tattoos. He wondered how same tattooed yutes would look when they get to a retirement home, and one reader offered a glimpse.

Bad tattoos are bad no matter what the age. What I find more interesting to contemplate is how different people's perceptions will be in 30 years. To imagine the same reaction in the future as present day is to deny how far body art has evolved both in style and image perception. The current first lady of Germany has a tattoo and Lady Randolph Churchill had a snake inked around her wrist. Personally I think my tatts will get me extra pudding at the senior's home when the time comes. The tired question of what about when one is old and inked is rather ridiculous in a society that starts botoxing in our 20's. We have little respect and physical admiration for the aged with or without tattoos. As Auntie Mame said, "Live! Live! Live!"
