Antinous is a connoisseur.
And a master of no small talent himself.
Antinous didn’t make the comment.
But, as Xeni wrote, he “noted” it.
Many of us, including me, first thought it meant Antinous made the comment.
Of enemas ???
But would he be more full of shit if someone reversed the polarity on his colostomy bag?
Somebody needs to get his enemas and colostomies sorted out, but otherwise I am so stealing this line!
Yeah, as i understand it an enema bag contains water which is pumped into the colon. So reversing it would actually make the person LESS full of shit? ~confused~
Glorious comment indeed!
Link to comment thread, por favor? I wish to witness the potentially glorious context.
I had to go looking. No great surprise, it’s from the gender roles and crayon thread.

So, he makes a comment that would get any other user’s account locked for at least 24 hours but he gets the front page.
That said, it *IS* a pretty epic flame.
he or she.
Yeah, I was a little surprised and disappointed to see BoingBoing so elevating a moderator insulting a user. Was that really the comment of the day? If so, what does that say about BoingBoing?
As stated above, Antinous didn’t make that comment.
Then it’s a moderator praising a user for insulting another user.
As someone not entirely unlike I imagine Antinous to be once said, “No, that is incidental”.
Doctor Who defeated the Master a few times by reversing the polarity of his enema flow.
That commentor was clearly a lummox and a crackpot.
Were the original commentor’s names Spoor and Dowser?
Handing out awards for the least necessary over-reaction. Excellent.
One of my all-time favorites, many a moon ago, comes courtesy of Slashdot. The topic at hand was “Piracy Not To Blame In Decline Of Moviegoers”.
Guy #1- “I don’t know about you pal, but I’d take a hot date to my home theater over a public cinema any day”.
Guy #2- “So you can show her your massive collection of authentic Japanese tentacle-rape hentai?”
Guy #3- “Of course! Women love artsy foreign movies with subtitles”.
Is it bad if I read that as “public enema?”
