AGREE! Especially 3, 4, 14, 27. Some of the others are even more especially, since I don't even know what they are.

"What kind of fuckery is this?"

That's classic Winehouse. I can't believe you don't get it. Oh, maybe it's not the music, maybe you're perplexed at how much of a hot mess she is and is still on this side of the dirt.

Yeah, I don't get why men watch sports either. That's dumb. :)

I would like to add:

Why the name "Jack" is short for "John." Isn't John short enough?

Cat said...

Speaking of odd nicknames, why is Dick short for anything? I think long ago, some guy named Richard was a jackass and they called him dick, and it just stuck.

That said, I don't understand organized religion either. Eew or people who drink Mountain Dew!

Ha! Rachel Ray's laugh is annoying... and I'll doubt men will ever be able to crack the mysteries of shoe/jewelry appeal.

I get #9, #13 and #27, but the rest I am surely with you on. I don't also get why anyone would think that the Bears don't suck.
