The smell of farts
Should I Warn Landlord about Unstable/Malicious New Tenant?


Farters are not a protected class under HUD regulations, so go ahead.

Well, if the cans are bulging alarmingly and smell of farts, better not donate them.

Fuck the holidays and all this fake happy ass shit
Fireball Whiskey mini-bottles and toothpicks with dental floss


It starts in October and I'm already sick of it
If Christmas were cancelled it would be no great loss


(Chorus)





ETA: I guess you have to imagine the "Fireball Whiskey mini-bottles" are "pumpkin spice" flavored and the "toothpicks with dental floss" are somehow Christmas themed toothpicks with dental floss.

For me, drinking a half-tablespoon of Chanel Number 5 really improves the fragrance for about 36 hours. It's a little indulgence I allow myself.

Why all the misplaced hatred for The Little Drummer Boy?

If I was one of 3 kings traveling from afar to a make-or-break gig in Bethlehem, only to be forced to go on after some local fuck puh-ruh-puh-puh-pums the audience into smiling, I'd be pissed too.

Vegans and naturally-shed animal products
Eating fast food for a month


Personally, I think the second answer is more likely, but that's just my theory.

It may be anecdotal, but seeing babies plummet out the window really brings the problem home to you.

Why do people work on PC in a coffee shop?
What is it like to attend the Macy's Thaksgiving parade?
Do you have a theory about why people are getting more obese?
