Comment of the Day: In Honor of Memorial Day?

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.

For Memorial Day, we naturally wanted to celebrate in an appropriate fashion, so we posted pics of women wearing flag bikinis! Not everyone approved, however.

Kwwiz noted:

Shows very little taste and is EXTREMELY inappropriate to dishonor a flag so many have given their life for, poor judgement HP, but then again therein lies the irony, FREEDOM of expression - An American Vet BTW I was only referring to the American & Tx Flags, the other ones I dont have any comment on
