Comment of the Week

Saturday, November 1, 2008
This week's Comment of the Week winner is our very own Eric, who became the master of irony with this gem in response to my post on agnostics and atheists in American society:
"Is it ironic if I give you an, "Amen, sister!" Because, you know, amen, sister."

Eric, you get a week's supply of "win" covered in "awesome sauce" for your superlative efforts. All hail Eric!

I think that comment would qualify him as a deity. You? :D

I just woke up from a nap a little while ago and maybe I'm still a little groggy. I read that as him commenting on your post about "agnostics and athletes". I know I would have remembered if there had been a post here about a post-game interview in which some player said, "God didn't have nothing to do with it. I picked up that damn ball and I ran the shit out of it."

Eric said...

Nathan, that would be the best post-game interview ever.

The only way it might be improved would be if the athlete added, "And if there is a God, I hope He was saving some babies from a tsunami or something instead of watching the frickin' Super Bowl."

So actually I don't think there's truly anything ironic about using the term amen.

It's a Hebrew word that means "so be it" or "truly" which makes perfect sense in the context of the conversation.

The fact that everyone else takes it solely in a religious sense without knowing the meaning of the word is not Eric's fault.

Sorry. :)

Is it my fault I know so much worthless information?

Oh. Wait. It is. Nevermind.

Michelle, just one of the many reasons we like you.
