Comment of the Day: PETA Sucks, But the Circus Does Too

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 or afternoon 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.

Today, we wrote the inevitable: When the circus comes to town, PETA does, too. It's part of the ebb and flow of life, the yin and yang of animal-related activities if you will. One commenter pointed out what we assume should be obvious to just about everyone.

I'm no fan of PETA, but circuses do treat animals like shit.

Seriously.
