Things I Don't Understand, part two

The random dual bathtubs (usually outdoors) in the Cialis ads.


9-11 Conspiracy Theories.

Why we need a remake of Footloose.

Preachers who feel compelled to use questionable language from the pulpit (yes, there are still quite a few people who find freakin’, flippin’ and frickin’ offensive and inappropriate).
See my rant here.

People who forget to silence their cell phones in church, theatres, meetings, etc. And then when the ringtone blasts, they act like they’ve never used it before and can’t seem to figure out how to turn it off.

Televised poker tournaments.

Things I Don't Understand, part one

I have been a fan of my friend Jen Taylor’s lists of “ThingsI Don’t Understand.” She has inspired me to start a list of my own. I don’t understand why these things are a big deal, or in some cases, why they exist at all.
  • Angry Birds.
  • Fantasy football.
  • KJV-onlyism.
  • Girls who wear spaghetti strap shirts with a bra strap that is three times as wide.
  • Worship leaders who shout “here we go” when we are halfway through the song.
  • Reality shows like Hoarders, My Strange Addiction, and Jersey Shore.
  • Why MSNBC put Al Sharpton on the air.
  • Christians picketing or boycotting things they don’t like (has this strategy ever worked?)
More to come, but what would you add to the list?
