Time to exorcise those demons of unthankfulness so that tomorrow we can concentrate on giving thanks.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â You know there are those pop cultural hitches in your giddy-up, sticks in your craw, gypsies in the grill of your Hummer, etc. that are bringing you down.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â So let’s have ’em.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â Demons out!
I’m not thankful for . . .
People who overstate the significance of Borat.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â This isn’t a great commentary on bigotry in America.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â It’s funny.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â Isn’t that enough?
Jessica Simpson.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â Nuff said.
Ludacris’s song and acting on SNL last week.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â Dude, don’t sing about rape and child abuse.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â You haven’t earned it.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â And don’t bring out Mary J. Blige to belt a tired, two-word, melisma-drenchedÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â chorus in the midst of your exploitative song.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â And be more funny.
Geico’s newest batch of commercials, the “We hired an actor . . .” ones.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â Geico’s been consistently pretty decent at making humorous commercials.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â The caveman series has been great and some of the “I have good news . . .” ones have been funny the first few times.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â The new ones do nothing for me.
I’ve got so many more.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â But I’ll leave it at that for now.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â Oh, and feel free to take exception to my unthankfulness.
