The All-Caps Comment of the Week

Posted By on Tue, Aug 23, 2011 at 10:00 AM

This harrowing, emphatically told story comes from commenter "fromnh46" on my post suggesting that you take some time off work tomorrow to grab a drink. I had to pull the comment because our rules prohibit posting in all caps, but the combination of personal tragedy, evangelical message and internet-shouting anger seemed worth some sort of a forum:

IDIOT!! ABSOLUTELY NOTHING POSITIVE. BOOZERS ARE LOSERS. ONE OF THE BIGGEST DESTRUCTIVE LIQUIDS OF PERSONAL LIVES AND FAMILIES! THE COUNTLESS PEOPLE IN THE ENTIRE WORLD THAT HAVE GONE DOWN THE TOILET BECAUSE OF ALCOHOL! AFTER VIET NAM, I TRIED TO DROWN THE HORRORS OF THAT WAR WITH ALCOHOL.....GOLLY IT DIDN'T WORK AND I GAVE MY HEART TO JESUS AND HE SET ME FREE! RESPONSIBLE DRINKING?! THAT IS A TOTAL JOKE AND IN THE VAST MINORITY OF ADULTS.....YEAH RIGHT?! 50,000 PEOPLE A YEAR DIE IN TRAFFIC ACCIDENTS DUE TO ALCOHOL! I WONDER HOW MANY WOULD DIE IF THEY WERE DRINKING MILK! MY FATHER WAS A DRUNK AND CAME HOME AND BLEW MY MOTHER'S HEAD OFF WITH A SHOTGUN; THEN HE STUCK THE SHOTGUN IN HIS MOUTH AND BLEW HIS HEAD OFF. TOO BAD HE WASN'T A HEAVY MILK DRINKER! ISOLATED INCIDENT? HORSE PUCKY! EVERYDAY, ALL DAY, EVERYWHERE! ASK TPD HOW MANY DRUNKS THEY HANDLE ON A DAILY BASIS?! YEAH....AND THEY ARE DRIVING CARS! IT'S ATTEMPTED MURDER! LIKE I SAID....BOOZERS ARE LOSERS! CHOOSE THIS DAY TO BE A WINNER!
