Don’t force me to be thankful.

The thing that makes me the most un-thankful is when someone says we should go around the table and have everyone say something they’re thankful for. I’m thankful when that crap is over because I want to eat.

People get tattoos of company logos all the time. People get Harley-Davidson tattoos so often it’s boring. I mean if you’re going to have a midlife crisis, at least put some thought into it. But people also get tattoos of some real weirdo corporate stuff like the guy who got a tattoo of the KFC Double Down and the guy with the Walmart tramp stamp. I’m pretty sure the KFC one was a paid stunt, and I’m confident the Walmart one was joke (and as a joke, it’s the definition of being committed to a bit). Read more
