Comment Of The Day: Hugh Hefner Lines Things Up

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 could barely contain our excitement at the announcement that Hugh Hefner is engaged again; accordingly, we listed several things that are older than his young new fiancee. Like Lady Gaga.

That led one reader to imagine the joyful birth scene lo those not-so-many years ago.

April 29, 1986: Hugh Hefner is in a hospital room in a maternity ward in Lake Havasu, Arizona. He is holding open a briefcase containing one million dollars, displaying it to two expectant British parents. "...and all you have to do is raise your daughter to have a liberated sexuality and a profound respect for rich and powerful men. I will take care of the rest." "Well...it is a lot of money...", they said.

Hef's plan was in place and he rubbed his hands together looking forward to unwrapping his future wife.
