Only those who have been unfortunate enough to actually chew on tinfoil can fully appreciate the title of today's blog. My mind being what it is, I found myself this morning making a list of some of the things which induce a similar reaction in me.
The endless Subway commercials featuring "just plain folks,"singularly and in groups, singing "Five dol-lar foot-longs" excruciatingly off-key and obviously under the impression that what they're doing is really, really cute.
Those who think they are really, really "cool."
Baseball caps worn with the bill in any direction other than straight forward (reason same as above).
Al Roker, weatherman, solemnly intoning "It's FOOT-ball Night in A-MAIR-IK-A!!!!"
Plavix commercials' final warning: "Just because you're feeling better doesn't mean you're not still at risk."
Extreme Home Makeover's Ty Pennington's "Goooooooood Morning, Whoeverinhellyouarethisweek Family!" and "Well, I guess there's only one thing left to say."
"...for well qualified buyers."
"No reasonable offer refused!"
"Every application accepted!"
"Emerging science suggests..."
"May help reduce the appearance of..."
"Everyone's talking about..."
"Call within the next three minutes!"
"Not sold in stores!"
Anyone who presumes to speak for God.
"But wait! There's more!" ....which I'll get to at another time.
