I can't quit you, SFGate comments

Now, admittedly, SFGate's fun foto feature on Spring Break 2010 isn't exactly Woodward and Bernstein-level reportage, but it's a harmless enough little piece that doesn't hurt anyone and probably gets a ton of pageviews, since it features some skin. Ah, journalism in 2010. Anyway, whatever pays the bills.

Look, what fun!

College kids swarm sunny beaches and party like there's no tomorrow. Follow them vicariously.

SFGate Commenters, on the other hand, tend to take a rather dim view of any picture in which someone is depicted as having fun. It fails to comport with their bleak worldview. So what do they have to say?

Oh, that's sad. Frolic in the surf? YOU ARE DOOMED.

Christian troll is Christian.

Wait, you think this person is serious? How'd you like to have to recruit for a religion that considers bikinis "filth and debauchery"? Spend a weekend with me sometime, "sweatypie," and it'll put you in a mental institution.

I can't recall ever "making out with my girls friends for my hard-working fathers," but hey, whatever happened in ordinary_g's house is between him and Oprah.

SFGate commenters are assholes. You could literally post a picture of an orange and half the comments would be about tea-party bullshit, how Obama is evil, and how oranges represent The Man keeping everyone down or something.

I can't imagine what they'd say about a cute puppy kissing a rainbow or some shit like that....god they'd go off like crazy if they saw THAT.
