Why a book like "the life of Pi" became such a hit.
Ditto for the book, "who moved my cheese"...
the state of the economy
the "overly mature" US senate (i guess this may explain the state of the economy...)
the snuggie. I'm sorry. It's a fucking blanket with holes in it.
chia pets. (yes, they still sell)
televangelists... (aka chia pets)
hollywood weddings. (actually, any wedding, for that matter)
huge insect house ornaments (you've seen them - butterflies, dragonflies, ladybugs) I don't get it.
lawn ornaments. ditto.
fried bread dough... i could go on, but i don't want to.
the fact that for the first time in history, there are more people dying of obesity than starvation.
that - is poetic, don't you think?
