Ohhhh commenters, where would we be without you? Well, actually: we'd probably spend less time refreshing our own articles for reaction and more time actually, um, writing them, and our web editrix and comment moderator* probably wouldn't have a rapidly developing stress-induced eye twitch.

Jaykay! (Mostly.) You guys are great, and we love you, and we don't tell you enough. So in the interest of bestowing upon you all the praise you so deeply deserve, we're introducing a new weekly feature, in which we publicly recognize the best comment of the past seven days. Without further ado, the inaugural Comment of the Week goes to the inimitable Lawngun, with this gem, on our blog item about post offices open late for tax day:

And, don't even THINK about filling out your Form 1040 in roman numerals this year. Let's just say the IRS doesn't seem to have much of a sense of humor.

So to Lawngun, whoever you are: a week's worth of bragging rights. To everyone else: think you can do better? Prove it.

*full disclosure: this person is me.
