Bullet Holes and Baseballs

There are so many aspects of our society that I find completely unacceptable. In order to keep things organized, I am going to create a list. This list is based on previous posts, so look through my blog archives to find why I find the items on this list unacceptable.

1. Wearing a cell phone on your hip
2. The idea that a nice smile is the "normal" way to pose for a photograph
3. People who cut to the front of a traffic back-up when they know they need to get over
4. Local TV Newspeople
5. Confirmational Reactionist
6. Wearing a blue tooth headset as a fashion accessory

Well, I have a few things to add to this list.

Putting bullet hole stickers on your car. Come on, seriously? I cannot possibly imagine why anyone in their right mind would do this. Are there seriously people in this country who think it is humorous to pretend like your car got shot up? Or perhaps they think it will make them look cool and tough? For the majority of people, their vehicle is one of their largest assets. Why in the world would you intentionally do anything to reduce the value of one of your greatest assets? Putting bullet hole stickers on your car not only decreases your car's value, it also makes your car look ridiculous and calls into question your mental stability. Please do not do this.

Placing a fake baseball on your car that gives the allusion that it has shattered your window. Doing this is right up there with bullet holes. In fact, doing this is basically the less-ghetto form of placing bullet hole stickers on your car. I can just imagine someone trying to show off to his friends his new gag: "Hey guys, check it out. It totally looks like a baseball shattered my car window and I was too lazy to do anything about it, but guess what? It's fake! I am serious! Don't you think it is awesome!"
I am not sure what is more tragic: that people are actually doing these things to their cars, or that we live in a country where people are making money off of selling garbage like this.

Todd, I think you may need to comment on those ever popular stickers where Calvin, from "Calvin and Hobbes" pees on various things. What's up with that?
