Sugarville...I wonder if this is where Uncle Sugar hails from. I'll have to make a note to ask Mike Schmuckabee about this.

While waiting in line at my local post office -- and I had a long time to wait -- I noticed this sign:
Why the quotation marks around the translation? Is "Service Door" handled ironically in Spanish? Or is this a way of confusing non-native speakers?
For that matter, why is "COD" possessive?

For me, the most depressing part of this holiday is seeing Duck Dynasty sugar cookies with a seasonal theme. Can someone please tell me what in the hell this obnoxious phenomenon has to do with 1) cookies, 2) Christmas, or 3) basic sensibility?
Christmas is supposed to be a time of love, acceptance, and tolerance, and for recognizing a figure who embodied these qualities. So where does Phil Robertson fit into all of this? The real scrooges here, though, are the money grubbers at A&E. Despite their "suspension" of Robertson, viewers will be able to see his hairy puss in the new season beginning next month. I guess "good will toward men" is fine as long as it doesn't affect the bottom line.

I got these new rubber spatulas the other day:
What struck me were the "helpful hints" on the back. I'm glad that they told me that it was the smaller spatula that would fit in narrower spaces. Otherwise, I would have been at a complete loss.

This was a poster I found at my local AutoSplash Car Care Center:
Pete Delkus is one of the local meteorologists here in Dallas. I know this is for a good cause, and god bless him and the folks at WFAA for doing this every year. But that caricature of Delkus kind of creeps me out.

This is one of the reasons I hate holiday advertising:
Why do you need to "seize" Christmas? Why not just enjoy and celebrate with family and friends?
Screw you, Nike, and that idiot wearing your dumb-ass hoodie! How's that for seizing the holiday spirit?!

Here's something I found the other week and had previously shared with my friend Brian:
There are many things about this that make me curious. Why is that woman holding the roller as if it were a microphone? What's that expression on her face? Why is the lint flying all around her if the roller is supposed to be effective? And what's the deal with "Roll'r"? I guess it just had to be trademarked.
