Some Things I Really Don’t Give a Shit About.

Filed under: Uncategorized — Jim @ 11:50 am

In no particular order:

Most sports, most of the time.

American Idol.

The Oscars/Emmys/Golden Globe/People’s Choice Awards

Ms. Spears.

What most countries think of the U.S.

Donald Trump’s opinion about anything.

What ___________ (fill in the name of a Hollywood chucklehead) thinks about anything.

The portion of any weather forecast that exceeds ten seconds.

Professional athletes and steroids.

Groundhog Day.

Network Television, 90% of the time.

My carbon footprint.

Your carbon footprint.

  1. Jimbo:

    You’re a stud. Hands down. You’ve hit it dead on with this post. Probably most of middle America is with you on this too. Get your ass out here to Colorado so I can swill scotch whiskey with you and bloviate with you about all the maddening political nonsense and pop culture incessantly rammed down our throats from the east and west coasts.

  2. Excellent list. I would add, “What other people think of me” — just to be Maude-Lebowski thurrah.

  3. Dude, you are totally living on the wrong planet then. For that matter, so am I.

    Some benefits to living on the Moon: It’s pretty to look at from afar, and never looks exactly the same on any given day (at least from the Earthlings’ vantage points). You can jump really high. There’s some peace and quiet (none of that Ms. Spears bullshit on the radio, TV, or Internet). You can wave at your friends on Earth if you decide you miss them a little. There are also no asshole dictators, no moonbats, no Wiseass Jooettes to break your stindeens, no wars to be waged, no traffic, and no property taxes…not yet, anyhow.

    On the other hand, I don’t believe there are any Legion Posts, blogmeets (though, who says, for a certain price, we cannot have a blogmeet on the Moon?), nor is there chance of there being much in the way of potato squeezins…things you do give a shit about…so, looks like you will have to put up with Donald Trump (a perversion of a “Hairboy” if there ever was one) and dooshbag self-aggrandizing celebrities patting one another on the back for memorizing a bunch of bullshit lines and making gazillions of dollars for it, for, well…forever.

    Haha, you are screwed. Sorries, Hairboy. I will break your stindeens for as long as you live here on Earth! Forever!! Bwahahahahahahaha!!

  4. You sound like a Libertarian. I agree with you on most things, but I am getting more and more concerned about the environment.

  5. To your list, I’d add:

    Political gasbaggery (versus what they actually DO
    Reality TV (it’s anything BUT)
    Myspace/YouTube/Facebook/etc.
    Sub-prime loans
    How ‘dangerous’ the Internet is for _____ (well, duh! Pretty much anything can be dangerous if you have your head up your ass…)

  6. Great list.
    If expanded I’d suggest ANY PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT.

  7. I’m glad your list didn’t include fishin’. Them’s fightin’ woids. I’d agree with most of the rest, but I’m a sport freak, well, freak in general, but sports in particular. And while I don’t follow the every move of Ms. Spears, she is an example of, when you think things are bad for you, it could be worse, or, if you though YOU were dumb, she’s dumber… And, I like it when she flashes her coochie…

  8. RedNeck,

    I was going to add fishing, but I thought I had better explain myself (figuring I’d beget the ire of you, GuyK, and Catfish), which I will do in a future post.

  9. Well, Jimbo, the way I got it figured is that the only people who don’t give a shit about fishin’ are those who tried it and found out the fish were smarter than they thought they wuz…it seems it is only those of us who can actually catch a fish that give a shit about fishing..and chain saws and stuff like that..

  10. Perish the thought of adding it… I know very well when a buzz bait is cast upon frozen waters, that’d be ice, it accomplishes little other than amusing the … shall we say, sobriety challenged slinger of said bait, however, it is good practice, and if you can keep the bait out of the tree, then you’re refining your angling skills. Some people call that, “Woikin’ hard in the off season”.

    Those dudes that drill holes in the ice. Set up shack, fire the heater, and drop eleventy hundred lines through that hole, they’re not fishin’. They’re gettin’ tanked bro’, and avoiding the wife or whatever else is buggin’ ‘em. For real. I don’t want to be passed out in the corner of the shack after consumption of a bottle of Evan Williams(BASS fishing sponsor) when the propane ice heater melts the ice while I’m checkin’ the eyelids for cracks and missin’ cracker size fish bites that never come. Know whatta mean?

    To summarize, you can add Ice Fishin’ to the list, and it won’t piss me off.

  11. You, my friend, hit the nail directly onto the head. In fact, you hit it with such precision and force I must put in my two cents:

    When are people going to start telling the wh0res…I mean Dy…I mean the women of Code Pink to stand aside, stfu, and take a shower? Have you ever even looked at some of the photos of these people? Holy Christ almighty, I could not even imagine the stench emanating from them.

  13. Our lists look strikingly similar. Clonelike even…

  14. Right there with you there Jim.
    My Give-A-Fuckometer doesn’t go low enough to measure most of these items.
