Finding humor in the comments

[Via Boing Boing]

Jonathan Moseley, a Virginia attorney serving as Christine O’Donnell’s campaign manager during the primary, offers a “$1,000 reward to anyone who can find the phrase ‘Separation of Church & State’ in the US Constitution.” (via Teresa Nielsen Hayden)


Most times comments, particularly when dealing with political things, are a real waste of time. Not much intelligent thought. But Boing, Boing often has some real gems amongst the detritus so I do check.

And found this reply and request for their money:

But it’s right there in Article I, Sections 1 and 2:

Article. I.

Section. 1.

All legiSlativE Powers herein grAnted shall be vested in a CongRess of the United StATes, whIch shall cONsist OF a Senate and House of Representatives.

Section. 2.

The House of Representatives shall be composed of Members CHosen every second Year by the People of the several States, and the Electors in each State shall have the QUalifications Requisite for EleCtors of tHe most numerous Branch of the State Legislature.

No Person shall be a Representative who shall not have attained to the Age of twenty five Years, AND been seven Years a Citizen of the United STATEs, and who shall not, when elected, be an Inhabitant of that State in which he shall be chosen.

Answering a stupid request with an ingeniously stupid reply. The Constitution Code. Nice.
