Kim, oh, Kim. And to think, I once respected your opinion.
Kim du Toit put up his flameworthy list of 25 People, Places Or Things That Are Popular, For No Apparent Reason
Here they are, with my comments:
1. Light beer
I don’t drink, so I’ll give this one a pass.
2. Chev Camaro
Chevy. It’s CHEVY. And I’m a FORD GUY, but I’d still like to have a 1970 SS396.
3. Apocalypse Now
Another pass. What the hell was that about?
I’m not into it, but my wife, who is Japanese, loves the stuff. Hell, I love grits.
5. Bob Dylan
Here we are in complete agreement, though I do like Lay Lady Lay.
I grew up in Florida, and went to Disney World the year they opened, and several times after. I went there on my honeymoon. Try being a KID, Kim. It helps.
But I would like to machinegun It’s a Small World. And napalm the ruins.
7. Piercing of the private parts
I’m in full agreement on this one. Semi-precious boogers (nose piercings) are bad enough.
8. Candy with coconut in it
Mounds Bars RULE!.
9. Olive Garden restaurants
Salad and breadsticks. They need no other justification.
And have no other justification.
10. the NBA
Male ballet. We agree again.
11. Les Miz (the musical)
Haven’t seen it, don’t plan to.
An absolutely beautiful state. Too bad it’s occupied by Californians. As someone once said, in the middle of the night the country tilted, and everything loose rolled into California.
13. Unintended Consequences, by John Ross
It’s worth the read just for the history lesson in how civil liberties slip away while no one notices.
14. Windows operating systems
I’ve been using Windows since it came out. Beats Linux for the average user. And commercial software makers write A LOT of stuff for it, which is more than you can say about Apple.
15. the Rolling Stones
They’re still going to be on stage when they’re using walkers. They were once very good. Now they’re just good, but I give ’em points for longevity.
16. Any novel by John Grisham
I’ve liked almost all of them. What, you were expecting Tolstoy?
Two words: “Soft Spread.”
Another beautiful place full of people disconnected from reality.
Iceberg. See “Olive Garden” above.
20. Sex In The City
21. Buffalo wings
We’re in full agreement here.
22. New Orleans
Never been there, but any place where women flash their breasteses for some cheap-ass plastic beads is OK in my book.
I burn like Joan of Arc, so I understand his aversion, but toasty brown is much more appealing than pasty-white.
24. the “music” of AC/DC
Hell’s Bells. Back in Black. Highway to Hell. ‘Nuff said.
Unless you’re a sailor, I agree.
