Sometimes The Commenters Are More Entertaining Than The Newsmakers!

I was reading an AP News story about a trio of brain-dead people who ran away from a restaurant without paying their bill after eating there. But, in their haste, they forgot their purses in the restaurant! The story can be found here. In part, it reads:

A dine-and-dash escapade went bad when two of the fleeing diners left their purses behind. The Springfield News-Leader reported that no charges had been filed as of midweek against the three women who ran from a Waffle House restaurant Sunday morning without paying their $39 bill. The general manager said the women seemed intoxicated or under the influence of drugs.

The Springfield paper said a short time after fleeing, one of the women returned to the store and demanded the purses.

The manager said he told the woman she needed to wait for police to arrive, but she left.

Yeah I know, the story is funny enough. But I was skimming the comments below the story when I came across the second comment, as shown in the picture below:

In case you can't read it, it says: "TopGun: you are an idiot." Now, as in most unmoderated comment boards, this does not surprise me. Somebody disagrees with somebody else, and they call each other idiots. But my curiosity was a little piqued, and I started looking for the comment by TopGun that provoked this blunt assessment of his/her intellect.

Well, what I found was not one comment by TopGun, but 7 of them, all one after the other, rambling on about something totally irrelevant. Quite irrelevant to the story at hand, but entertaining nonetheless! And I do have to agree with the previous commenter about this being quite indicative of TopGun being mentally deficient! In fact, the statement may well be one of the best understatements ever. TopGun's rant is reproduced below.

In case you can't read it these are the comments in order:

"This is another unnecessary burden put on small business due to liberal policies!!!"

"Boy I tell you liberals are getting bolder and bolder since Obama took office!!!"

"Why didn't all of you loving liberals come to their rescue Oh I forgot didn't get your government check yet and their was no republican you could stick with the bill!!"

"Guess they couldn't wait to get there government cheese and decided to take matters into their own hands! This is what we get for these treacherous lefty socialist liberal policies!!!"

"This is what happens when people get feed up with the government cheese all of a sudden they want new items on the menu, @#$% ingrates!!!"

"Liberals can more than afford to pay their bills now that the government cheese has went through so they are without excuse!!!"

"More liberals trying to eat for free! Why couldn't they wait on their government cheese like everyone else?"

Well, what can I say? You come across gems like this only once in a while! He couldn't even condense his entire rant into one comment. No, he had to separate it out into 7 separate comments. At least the addle-brained diners can feel better about themselves because TopGun graciously decided to deflect most of the ridicule of readers onto him/herself. Way to go, TopGun!
