Happy Post-Thanksgiving: Eleven Things I am Ungrateful For


1.  Squirrels

Because they’re assholes.

Anyone who follows my blog will know why.


2.  Frosted Mini Wheats

Coat them with sugar all you want, they still taste like sawdust.


3.  Lucky Charms (just the cereal part)

Because REALLY…without marshmallows, what’s the freaking POINT?


4. Caillou

Teaching kids everywhere to be whiny little shits, since 1995.


5.  The Kardashians

For the life of me, I cannot think of  one thing these women actually DO.   Except maybe metabolize food into CO2 and water vapor and waste heat.

Okay.  I’ll give them THAT…at least.


6.  French Kids’ TV Shows with Puppets


…and you thought ELMO was obnoxious!


7.  Estrogen-Saturated Yogurt Commercials


Nothing like setting back the feminist movement by 40 years…


8.   Chips Ahoy Cookie Bags

Ever since they changed their design…just TRY and open one without ripping it.


9.   Faster-than-Light Neutrinos Research 

Okay,  you guys.    Stop it.

Just STOP it.

You’re going to ruin physics for EVERYONE.


10.  Cirque de Soleil

Make it go away.



11.  Inspirational Posters telling me to  be grateful.

Because actually, they have the OPPOSITE effect.

  1. I love MiniWheats but I understand why you don’t. Everything else I agree with. BTW who are the Kardashians?

    @Army Wife

    I tolerate them. If they’re put in front of me, I’ll eat them. But I won’t go out of my way to buy them.

  3. Mike Says:

    Viagra, etc. advertising;

    Stupid advertising in general.

  4. Friar Says:


    Any advertising that has to do with genitalia is especially annoying.

  5. Dot Says:

    As for #9, it’s too late — physics was already ruined by black holes, the paradox of particles than can be either measured or observed but not both, and Schrodinger’s cat. Now it’s just getting interesting again. 😀

    wow! I stopped liking science when they got rid of the planet Pluto…that was so mean … not to be anal-retentive but Lucky Charms HAVE marshmellows – so why are you eating the cereal part without the marshmellows?

  7. Momlady Says:

    I totally agree with you. Add in the evil empire (Walmart).

  8. topiclessbar Says:

    Where did you find that French puppet show??? It’s amazing!

  9. Friar Says:


    Just search “Passe Partout” on YouTube. And prepare yourself to be VERY annoyed.

    (This was a very popular kids TV show in QUebec).

  10. Friar Says:


    I’m starting to like Walmart now, because the “People of Walmart” web site provides such great entertainment!

  11. Friar Says:


    But our existing physics was okay with all those things. It’s the faster-than-light neutrinos that are causing all the kerfuffle.

  12. Friar Says:

    I think what they did to Pluto was pretty shitty.

    You don’t give something like “Planetary Status”, and then suddenly take it back. For SHAME…astronomers…for SHAME!
