Goodbye 2009, Don’t Let The Door Hit Ya In The Ass On The Way Out

There’s something about a day that starts off with a little snow that eventually turns to rain, a battleship gray sky, hillsides of exfoliated trees, and a brother and sister having sex in a disabled car on the side of the highway, that can make any city look like Wheeling, West Virginia.  With the exception of the kin-terlude in the breakdown lane, that was today.  That was the last day of 2009.  A fitting end to a shitty year.

Without further ado, here’s my list of people from 2009 whose names I never needed to know:

5.  Snooki, The Situation, et al. It’s not because I am an Italian-American, or that I can’t do 100 sit-ups. In fact, we should probably thank the cast of Jersey Shore for showing us that the ability to know when we are being ‘laughed at’ and not ‘laughed with’ is a skill worth honing.

4. Edward and Bella. I know they’re very popular with the young teen girls (just like this site), which is why I hesitated including these star-crossed lovers on my list. And by star-crossed I mean that they both like boys (not that there’s anything wrong with that. This site is also very popular in the gay community). In fact, Edward may actually be more sexually attracted to Bela Lugosi than Bella Swan.

3. Elin Nordegren Woods.  Sure, I guess she’s pretty and all, if you like that sort of thing, but do you think she could handle the breakfast rush at Perkins’ Pancake House?  Yea, me either.

2. Adam Lambert.  Boy, he’s really making a name for himself, huh.

1. Susan Boyle.  Everyone was floored just because an ugly woman is able to sing really well. Wow, I guess I’m the only one who remembers Barbra Streisand.

  1. Awesome. Is there no better nickname in all of televison than “The Situation.” I think not. I’m curious to what your Jersey Shore nickname is. Happy New Year.

  4. Cheers for the post, your site is solid! I absolutely am in love with Sammi. This definitely brings back memories.

  5. Susan Boyle is an exceptionally talented lady who’s been subjected to considerable criticism in the media. IMHO she deserves every bit of success that she is having.

  15. Hi. this is kind of an “unconventional” question , but have other visitors asked you how get the menu bar to look like you’ve got it? I also have a blog and am really looking to alter around the theme, however am scared to death to mess with it for fear of the search engines punishing me. I am very new to all of this …so i am just not positive exactly how to try to to it all yet. I’ll just keep working on it one day at a time.

  21. Thanks for posting this article. I’m decidedly frustrated with struggling to search out germane and intelligent commentary on this issue. Everybody nowadays goes to the very far extremes to either drive home their viewpoint that either: everyone else in the planet is wrong, or two that everyone but them does not really understand the situation. Many thanks for your concise, applicable insight.
