"There's nothin' worse than goin' the post office and standing in line."

No, seriously?  Nothing worse?

Okay, I'm going to take a shot at  a challenge, in no particular order:

Having your hands amputated by Rwandan soldiers.

Having your clitoris removed by relatives in a Muslim country.





(Okay, let's just imagine all diseases and disorders; I think a cold is worse than standing in line at the post office.)

Polyester double-knit leisure suits.

A spat with... just about anyone, but let's say any family member.

Need I go on?  It's just a purely ridiculous statement, almost as stupid as pretending that God wants you to join a certain dating club (and has only mentioned it to the dating club, so its advertisers are obligated to inform you about it).

"You look like a beach angel," followed by a piercing scream.

Yeah, I'm going to buy that product, after its advertisers scream in my ear.

So, you ask, why do I watch?  Because as the optimist Theodore Sturgeon once said, 90 percent of everything is crap.  I put the percentage at 99.   But one percent of everything is a lot!  I try to live for the one percent.
