I know I'll probably lose a lot of people here and I'll come off as some kind of cranky old person [which I am, so whatever] but I can't handle hiding this anymore. Here is a list of things that people seem to love - TO LOVE! - that I cannot tolerate.
The Office. Seriously, that show is ridiculously bad. IT IS NOT FUNNY. A single sidelong glance when someone is being a douche is funny. A show built on the premise that that's all you have to do to bring the funny? Is lazy and un-funny.
As a subtopic - Steve Carrell. Not funny on The Daily Show, not funny on The Office, not funny in The 40-Year Old Virgin or that execrable movie with Tina Fey. In order to be deadpan funny, you have to be FUNNY. CF: Leslie Neilsen. You can't just mope around, idiot-like, shlumping in your every-day doofusness. You need to be able to bring it. And he cannot.
As a further subtopic - Judd Apatow Movies. Just awful. Not funny, not smart, not "Oh, so true to life!" They are a masturbatory exercise by a guy who thinks I AM THEREFORE I AM FUNNY. You. Are. Not.
Roasted Garlic. It tastes like burned feet. It ruins everything it touches. Either use garlic, or don't, but stop making that awful, awful paste and slathering it on stuff. It's not good.
What have you got, friends? Anyone left out?
