    Billboards with contact information on them. Yes, sure, let me take my hands off the wheel to write Dr. Rosenrosen's email address down here on the dashboard.
  7. 7.
    Hanging dinner plates on the wall. Or baskets. It makes me want to have a picnic on the wall it is so inviting but of course that is not possible because of gravity and so I have sad.
  8. 8.
    Any of these food-specific buttons on my microwave. And what if I'm heating a potato and a piece of pizza at the same time, HUH??

    Why so many "yo mama" jokes but almost no "yo llama" jokes

    Why Bob Dylan is all blurry on the Blonde on Blonde album cover

    Why we don't debike or decar or deboat or deskateboard or detruck but we deplane. And anyway I do not deplane, you arrogant plane. I rehuman.
  23. 23.
    Fruit cake. Like you take a cake with too much cloves in it and then bake in gumdrops. What madman invented this? I would rather eat an angry wolverine.
  24. 24.

  25. 25.
    The phrase "life preserver." It just makes you not fucking sink. It does not prevent hypothermia or shark devouring. SINK-PREVENTER.
