Best Daily RFT Comments of the Week

Posted By on Fri, Aug 7, 2009 at 2:36 PM

We didn't know what this man was doing when we posted his picture earlier this week. Thanks, then, to reader Doug Shachte who wrote to inform us of a compound-verb that had not been in our vocabulary: SPRAYFART! 

A post on Frontyard Feature's censored version of The Big Lebowski, elicited this comment from KBO: Why would they even choose this movie if they needed something PG-13? Fuckin' travesty, man. This isn't 'Nam, Frontyard Features. There are rules.

A story on a "Tweet Fight" between two politically opposed micro-bloggers got this comment from Stop. Please Just Stop: How can we make this country's already abominable level of political discourse even worse? Restrict it to a series of 140-character statements!

The post "St. Louis Rehabber Sentenced to Prison..."  about Doug Hartmann's multi-million-dollar real estate scam, got this feedback from Anonymous: Hartmann will spend a total of 730 days in jail. He is to pay restitution of $34,000,000.00. Which amounts to Hartmann getting $46,575.00 of stolen money for each day of jail time. What do you think? One day of jail for $46,575.00 in profit? Is it worth it? I think a lot of people would think so.

In response to the post "Study Finds Movies Distort Our Knowledge of History", Dean wrote: 
Yeah right, next thing you'll tell me is that Ben Affleck didn't really make out with Kate Beckinsale while flying across the Pacific single-handedly to kill all the Japanese for bombing PEARL HARBOR!

And finally...The story about Dennis Cretton of Belleville, Illinois, getting a DUI on his lawnmower, prompted this response from HS Stone: I think the name is misspelled! Should be Cretin!
