All Wind and Piss

I hate to say it, but there are many things that piss me off. My ‘pissyness’ scale ranges from a mild ‘huh, ain’t that some shit’ to turning into the ‘Incredible She-Hulk’. (My color is not green, it’s more of a heart attack reddish purple.) Anyway, as you can see it’s a very wide scale and it is very rare that I go full-on ‘She-Hulk’. The past few weeks, I have been ‘collecting’ things that have pissed me off. None are ‘She-Hulk’ worthy, but they are irritating all the same

School districts that send home fat letters: So let me see if I understand this…you are going to send letters home to parents, telling them that their child’s BMI is too high and they may be or are obese…for the sake of the child? Do you think the parent doesn’t already know that the child may have a weight problem? Perhaps the parent is trying to handle it without ‘shaming’ and giving the child a complex? Way to screw that up ‘fat letter school districts’. How is the school district not like a bully at school who tells some kid they are fat and ugly? It’s amazing that with all the accumulated education and various degrees, not one of you school district geniuses have read that it is scientifically proven that the BMI is NOT a good indicator of body fat. It cannot in any way distinguish between fat and muscle mass. Therefore, many ‘fit and trim’ school athletes are also recipients of said letters. Kudos to you ‘fat letter school districts’! Here’s to hoping that the cost of sending those letters home to parents is so overwhelming that a few of you get your skinny asses canned...

The Disney Channel: Thank you Disney Corporation for providing programming that has helped to make the current generation a bunch of smart ass, disrespectful, arrogant, self centered, entitled, ambitionless, twerking, drug addicted, talentless, brats. A 'Zippidy Do Dah' back at ya.

Career Politicians: I think that our senators and reps should have a two term limit just like our president. For example, there is no way that Strom Thermon, a man who sat in the senate for 48 years and fought against civil rights and for segregation in the 60’s should have been casting votes and making decisions in the 70’s, 80’s, 90’s, and 00’s! Come on people! This is why our government does not work. All the 'parties' are the same, they make the decisions they want, they vote to please themselves and we still vote for them term after term after term. They rely on us being too lazy to go to the poles and vote them out – and they are right!!! Shame on them and shame on us for allowing it.

Vampires: I am so damned sick of vampires in books, movies, and TV. Little did Anne Rice know when she penned ‘Interview with a Vampire’ that she was turning the entire genre upside down. Today, vampires are a favorite of tweens, young adults and overly romantic adults. Those poor tortured souls doomed to live an eternity wielding immense power, living in wealth, and suffering from eternal beauty. The HORROR!

Reality TV: Come on people!! Do you really believe that cameras just follow around the Bachelor or the Duck Dynasty clan and they just happen to catch all that stuff? Really? I vomit 2 carat diamonds too – want to buy some? These shows are loosely scripted, lines are tossed by producers and then all the crap is handed to story producers to make gold from shit. It’s cheap programming for the network, and we eat it up. Bon appetit sucka’s.

Feet: Read my post Feet Are Gross. ‘Nuff said.
