As the year rolls to a close, these are my top ten items from 2009 that received way to much time in the press and I really don't give a crap about.
10. H1N1 Swine Flue Vaccine - This is a holdover from 2008, but once the vaccine came out, it's all they talked about. Who's getting it? who is not getting it? Does it work? What's the dosage? And of course, how much is being made? Please people! There are so many other things that you are more likely to get, and are much worse for you. Fucking mindless sheep!
9. Boeing 787 Dreamliner - This is a little more local than national, but living in Seattle, it's been impossible to turn on the news, or read the local papers without headlines of the 787. The plane is two years behind schedule and finally flew. That's nice, can we now talk about something else Seattle.
8. The White House Party Crashers - AKA the Salahi's. These people were looking for a little fame, they did it by crashing a white house party, and guess what? They got exactly what they were looking for. Good job America.
7. Balloon Boy - Also on the list of people looking for a little fame, and the mindless public giving it to them. The only saving grace from this is the stiff sentence the judge handed out to this family, hopefully setting an example for others.
6. President Obama - Yes, I am one of the people who had high hopes for the guy and is beginning to feel a little let down. But come on, he's been in office for less than a year, lets give him a break and a chance.
5. Bill O'Reilly - You know people, if you would stop watching his show and clicking on any news article that mentions his name, he would go back to the rock he crawled out from under.
4. Tea Baggers - Speaking of right-wing-testicle-lickers, why is it that an ignorant minority population of the country gets so much face time in the press? Because people in this country watch.
3. Tiger Woods - So the guy sleeps around, who the hell wouldn't in his place. Besides his wife is a hottie, which means she's also probably frigid in bed. Just the honor of fucking her should be enough, she shouldn't actually have to do anything while there. Move on you bunch of prudes.
2. Susan Boyle - Yea! Some ugly fat chick can sing. Did you hear that her CD is the top selling CD right now. That's because most of her fans aren't smart enough to illegally download it like everyone else.
1. Michael Jackson - Everyone hated the guy before he died. Then suddenly he's a beloved pop star after he dies. I don't know if anyone is aware of it, but a half dozen other celebrities died this last year as well.
