Ahh, the curse word. There are few things in this world that can’t be spiced up by adding a good old-fashioned “fuck” in front of it. Jennifer Aniston and Lisa Kudrow, two of my favorite people in the entire world, had a little “Friends” reunion of their own last night on Jimmy Kimmel Live, where they went head-to-head in a “Celebrity Curse-Off.” Basically, the ladies have four minutes to one-up each other with swear words. Amongst my favorite were “prick cock,” “cunt sandwich,” and “snap pants,” which obviously didn’t qualify (that Phoebe Buffay gets me every time). Maybe Courteney Cox should stay home more often, because this is pure gold.
Remember that commercial where every guest walks through the door at Thanksgiving dinner saying “we brought the green bean casserole” and then that’s all the family has to eat? None of us want to be that guy, right? This is why being asked to bring a dish to Thanksgiving dinner can be all kinds of stressful.

I also hate it because the people who claim there’s a “war on Christmas” as a Christian holiday are often the same people who are proponents of Black Friday, a day that reduces Christmas to a secularized consumer holiday, because it’s good for the economy or something. I hate it because it entrenches consumer goods as status symbols.
