Best Daily RFT Comments of the Week


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!
