11th Stupid Thing

Booger Posters

(who knew this was an international epidemic!)

A Bucket List

No, this is not a list of things I want to do before I kick the bucket. This is a list things that belong in a bucket. Of crap.

I have posted here in the past about the Enemy and the Preoccupations he sends to distract us from Real Life. The Enemy, of course, is STUPIDITY. And the Dada Drummer is a prophet of Anti-Stupidity. Why? 1) My mitochondria are especially stupid-sensitive and I tingle all over when I encounter dumbnesses and 2) I was called by God. Or my Dog. Not sure who was talking.

I have noticed my Dada-senses tingling at a high rate lately so I need to speak out against flagrant Stupidity around me.

10 Really Stupid Things (in no particular order):

Vince's Slap Chop

The "Issue" of Obama's Fake Birth Certificate
The Real Housewives of Atlanta
The "Issue" of Pro-Euthanasia Death Panels killing Grandma

Jon Gosslin

Kate Gosslin
Preachers of "Prosperity Gospel"

Wife Swap

Fried Macaroni and Cheese

Is that clear? Good.

I feel a lot better.

Name Fail

AAAAAAAAAAA!! I just found a truly awful baby name web site. Terrible. Gross. Possibly a little evil. Go ahead: check it out now. I'll wait.

I knew it was going to get ugly when the main categories were "Cool" "Unique" and "Modern." Bad signs!

Then I see that the "featured" names today are Zhenson and Braxtany. I'm not making this up. Thank goodness the author helpfully indicates the intended genders since the names themselves have no interest in giving information about the named individual (except for that his/her parents were bat shit crazy).

Other gems are buried in the site. Here is a samplar plate of naming HORROR...



I particularly enjoy the names on this site that seem like prescription drug brands:


And please don't leave the site before checking out the goddess-awful list of "Mythical Baby Names." It includes winners such as AVATAR, EXCALIBUR, MEDUSA, and SAGA. I am NOT at all comforted by the fact that these names are, evidently, intended for mythical babies. I mean, their mythical friends will still make fun of them. And their mythical teachers will never know how to pronounce their stupid name. And they will lose out on mythical jobs because they seem to have been named by Ren-Fair crazed drug users.
