I just don't get it

Post by Ellie » 20 Sep 2011, 18:43

People who come an office meeting with free donuts, and carefully cut off, and then eat, only half a donut.

Glee.

High heels.

"Inspirational" quotes in email signatures.

The phrase "Man Cave."

Using the 0 character as the "nose" in smileys.

Those prepackaged peanut butter cheese-cracker sandwiches.

Sports fans.

Magazines about which celebrity was spotted leaving a love nest with which other celebrity to whom the first celebrity is not married.

Dreadlocks.

Apart from Glee, I get most of what you don't. I will explain high heels. They enhance the view of a woman walking away from you.

Yeah, that's what I was trying to encompass with my description. But you said it more concisely.

People who play the lottery.

The huge number of versions of the same costume drama films that get constantly made. e.g. Wuthering Heights, Jane Austin adaptions etc. And people complain about "hollywood"!

Ellie - I don't get high heels either. I can't imagine anything a man can do that would make it worth a woman's while to put them on.

dbcooper - just wow.

I can understand the urge to do your own interpretation of great literary works, but I detest remakes of ANY classic film.

Poetry.

The genius of Prince-not Prince-OK fine, dammit, Prince.

Liking whatever is popular and hating the thing you previously liked because it is no longer popular.

Mayonnaise.

Intentionally sucking at singing/playing your instrument for other than comedic effect.

Hating on television more than any other medium, triply so if you also watch movies, googoly so if you watch movies on a television.

Morning.

Yes. They make your calves look awesome. Both while you're wearing the heels, and in general.
