Top 10 overrated things

10. The Foo Fighters.
They started out well enough and were ok up until the point Pat Smear decided to do something else, now though they seem intent on proving how "nice" Dave Grohl is and being seen to be wacky, to the detriment of their music.

9. Ugg Boots. Wildly unattractive footwear worn exclusively by people who watch Jeremy Kyle.

8. Reality TV. Has spawned such Luminaries as Jedward, Cheryl Cole and Jade Goody. That's more than enough reason to hate it.

7. Blue Cheese. I love cheese, all types of it. Stilton and Gorgonzola though make me heave. They have an awful rancid metallic taste that I just can't stomach.

6. Jared Leto's dancing. No matter what you might think of 30 Seconds to Mars musically, Mr Leto dances like an octogenarian ballerina. Give it up.

5. Christmas. I don't know what it's like where you are, but Christmas here starts about mid September. Too much. I'm refusing to say Happy Christmas to anyone until the week before the actual event. And no, I don't want a fecking mince pie.

4. Twilight. I mean really?  He lives in a forest and sparkles in the sunlight? That's a fairy, not a vampire. And he drives a Volvo.

3. McDonalds. I heard someone refer to McDonalds as a restaurant. I might start calling my back garden The Serengeti, or Kakadu, maybe Monument Valley. It's as close to any of them as McDonalds is to a restaurant.

2. The Daily Mail. Possibly the worst newspaper in the world. Why? A newspapers job is to inform us of the news, not tell us what our opinions on it should be. The DM's ideal headline would be along the lines of "Gay Islamic terrorist devil dog in plot to burn Union Jack".

1. The Beatles. The Beatles music can be split into 2 categories. Nursery rhyme crap and pretentious crap. It is, however, all crap.

I concur whole heartedly on Uggs and definitely the Daily Mail (though I believe all tabloid press and the Guardian are set on brain washing their readership) but hang on a minute - BLUE CHEESE ROCKS (especially gorgonzola)...

I think people either "get" blue cheese or they don't -it's the same with anchovies I think- and I don't, sadly.

Amber said...

Your list makes me laugh because I agree with most of it....except about the Beatles.

You know I love the Beatles.

But that's okay, because I am still awesome.

fizzee rascal said...

You love the Beatles? That's ok, even awesome people are allowed to get one thing wrong. :)

theVibeGirl said...

Oh dear, I'm afraid I agree with every single point you said. (Except The Foo Fighters, because I don't know enough about them and their music to make a fair judgement.)

fizzee rascal said...

Why the "oh dear" then?

theVibeGirl said...

It's not a bad thing, just means I'm officially sticking around. :P

fizzee rascal said...

Ah, ok then. :)

Miss Melicious said...

Ok...you had me 'til the Beatles...I know that you hate them! But really...#1 overrated thing.
what about crocs...they definitely tie with Uggs.

fizzee rascal said...

Yeah, crocs are terrible too.

Mrs Midnite said...

I find myself agreeing a lot. Although while not a fan I wouldn't have The Beatles at number 1 there are far more deserving things. Justin Bieber perhaps!

How are you surviving the ice age?

fizzee rascal said...

Dustbin Beaver was way too obvious, if correct.

I'm not surviving it really, My genetics don't really approve of snow and ice.

I had a thought recently that basically anything that's known nationwide is overrated by the literal definition of the term. I had an argument with a friend when I argued that Pink Floyd was overrated. They're great, I love them, but they're given such praise over so many other bands. I would argue that anyone on MTV is overrated simply because of their exposure and praise, regardless of how good anyone thinks they are. I love so many overrated things.
