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 wrote about a man arrested for hunting neighborhood cats with a bow and arrow. Heinous enough -- so heinous that w esaid even noted bow and arrow dude Ted Nugent wouldn't do such a thing.
Don't cut The Nuge any slack, said one reader.
kybo61 had this t say:
Yo, let me at this guy. I don't have a bow and arrow but I could get one. I have a pellet pistol that takes .177 pellets. I might could compromise his ability to reproduce with that. And please, please don't mention the Nuge. He would kill anything he could, including grandma's poodle. He's just a rabid stone killer. Anyone who would sign up for guided hunting trips where the host provides dogs to tree helpless mountain lions for the Nuge to shoot at close range with his bow & arrow, that's no diff at all from this idiot killing people's pets from his back porch. And yes, that's what Nuge did in Wyoming where I used to live. I grew to hate him for it and so did my hubby, who used to be one of his biggest fans.
