I understand wanting to have a way to memorialize family and friends who have died in a traffic accident but having to drive by the scene regularly and be reminded of the tragedy seems to only prolong the grief. Wouldn't there be a more positive way to remember and memorialize the person's memory?
I put this trend in the same category as the "baby on board" signs. Cute family but what's the point of doing this??
OK I can take the cute family decals as being friendly but I seriously question anyone stupid enough to have one of these Calvin and Hobbes "peeing on something characters." These seem to be a way to say you hate some sports team or someone else's choice in trucks. Of course this says something about the crudeness of the people with these decals.
I know I like some gross looking foods like oysters but I can't image how you develop a taste for a food product made of animal scraps and cornmeal. At least they put food coloring and spices in hot dogs to cover up the taste and appearance of what you are eating. With scrapple that seems to be unnecessary.
Where do I begin with understanding Hummer drivers? It is just too easy to assume these drivers are overcompensating for some major ego deficiency. Wouldn't seeing a shrink be more productive in addressing their deficiency? And better for our environment.
I know that I am touching a sensitive subject with this one. I put this one right after the Hummer one as I think they have the same origin. I have to say that I grew up in rural Pennsylvania where every boy became initiated into manhood at the age of 12 when you could go hunting with your father. I remember the thrill of seeing a deer in the woods and taking a shot. But after a couple of unsuccessful hunts I began to realize that hunting didn't make any sense for me as I developed other less brutal interests and saw guns in a different light. I am someone who now believes that we would be a much, much better country without any guns. I know that we would have another Civil War if you tried to move in that direction and join the rest of the civilized world.
OK that is my list. Did I miss any?
