Newspaper Commenters are Satirical Geniuses

Man, if you ever want to spend some time questioning humanity's ability to survive the next hundred or years or so, read the comments that follow online newspaper articles.  Here's my recent favorite:

"How about complaining about the lack of white players compared to the black players? I don't hear anyone complaining about that. Seems to me that for racial equality in sports we should have more white players..not necessarily black coaches."

Count the logical errors in that construction.  Feel free to stop at half a dozen or whatever.

The vast majority of comments on Strib articles are so dumb I have to wonder how these people manage to get online at all.

Like one of the comments on this story where the writer apparently thinks a judge who follows the law isn't doing his or her job and that people can be locked up for something that they might do in the future. And! 14 people liked the comment.

Wasn't there a movie featuring our favorite Scientology nut about just that?
