That was the dumbest thing i have seen on the internet that wasn't posted by Issac.

Hollywood really needs to get their heads out of there asses.

What gets me is that Hollywood is up in arms over movie piracy because 'It's against the law!" but half the people in Hollywood use drugs.

You do realize it was a joke right?

What I hate is the new Pizza Hut ad for the giant ball of dough they call the "Panormous" pizza.

In the add, various people are passing along a very shaky looking CGI pizza box.   Why CGI looking?    Did they film the commercial and then change the name of the pizza so they had to put CGI on the box to change the logo?

I'm not a big fan of Christmas music in the first place but any ad that does a parody of a Christmas Carol is on my shit list.

I think I've mentioned it before but man i hate those ads that suggest you give a car as a present.

The hell? Either you're buying it out right (highly unlikely) or you're saddling the recipient with a huge payment, yeah thanks there, what was the number of that divorce lawyer?

Or you buy it, and make the payments. It isn't far fetched. My dad bought my mom a new car one year.

It's a fucking stupid gift.

Anyone did that for me I'd have them return it on Boxing Day. Mind you I don't take gifts all that well at the best of times :)

So, American here. What in the world is Boxing Day, anyway? I completely understand Guy Fawkes day, but so far no one has suceeded in explaining just what the hell Boxing Day is all about.

Is it the day when you fight with sales people to return the gifts you hate? If so then we need to adopt it!

Boxing day is kinda like leftover christmas sentiment for going back to work.  Giving gifts to employees and coworkers and so forth usually in plain boxes, thus boxing day.  At least that's the explation I got.

That's almost it: Essentially people would make little clay boxes (kind of like Piggy banks only not whimsically shaped like a piggy) which were put out in the run up to Christmas so people could show their appreciation for the work done throughout the year. The day after Christmas the boxes would be opened (well smashed) and the money would be divvied up. So Boxing Day = Christmas Bonus Day really :)

Yep. St Stephen's is the day it gets opened on.

Thank god it's not called Stoning Day, god knows what folk etymologies would ensue.

I hate those damned stupid Honey Bunches of Oats commercials that show a group of idiots driving around the country in an RV, showing people the "magic" of a freakin' BREAKFAST CEREAL!!! At one point, two of them are stacking up some mini boxes of the cereal in a pyramid, then laugh when they fall down. This is a joyous occasion?? Honestly, these people have no life whatsoever, if they find so much joy in a food product. They only smile because they are paid handsomely for it. If they ACTUALLY were so damned excited about a breakfast cereal, and ACTUALLY drove around the country to tell America about it without getting paid, well, I'd believe they were puppets of Satan.

Well at least I knew it involved employees and didn't have to do with beating each other up.   ;D
