One Piece of Pop Culture You Could Do Without

C’mon, play grumpy old man/woman with me — name one piece of modern pop culture you could do without.

I’ll start: custom ringtones (and even moreso, custom ringtone commercials on TV).

Reality shows. TV should be make believe damn it!

I'm not real big on TV quiz shows at the moment either :)

Entertainment reporting.

I care far more about my friends' babies than Angelina's. She's just another person--who really needs to know everything about her life? Sheesh.

Two words, "Product Placement". Remember back in the good 'ol days when the commercials knew their place? I swear I'll vomit the next time I see Carmindy shove Crest Whitestrips in my face on TLC's, "What Not To Wear"!

How about people that abuse the flag by sticking a cloth version to the side of their car and driving 70 mph down the interstates until most of it disappears and it is covered with road crud. That is not respect for the flag and it is apparently done by right wing nutters. It is illegal under the federal code books. There is no penalty but it is illegal. The amendment failed but I wish they passed a penalty for taping to a car. The only time it is OK is when you are in a parade driving slower than George Giggles Bush.



What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
