Here on Eating...Our Words, the commenters absolutely make the blog. And every once in a while, one comment will stand out from the pack -- whether it's absolutely hilarious, stunningly awful or thoughtfully constructed and well-argued. We honor them with the Comment of the Day.

Yesterday, our own Joshua Justice expanded on the news that a bartender at Baker Street Pub in The Woodlands had been arrested for over-serving a customer by noting that many responses to the arrest had been solidly on the side of the bartender.

"While jumping to the defense of those dangerously intoxicated and those responsible for over service may seem fairly obtuse," he wrote, "Texas's lax and haphazard enforcement of TABC policy over the years can also be cited as a contributing reason why many Texans see being served until they are blind drunk as a God-given right."

That prompted reader Jacob Pahcheka to prove Justice right, by launching into a string of comments lashing out against anyone who would interfere with his own God-given right to consume as much alcohol in one sitting as possible:
