Here is a brief, careless, illustrated list of things that fail to entertain me. It is by no means complete, but here you go:
Hello Kitty (Ironic or Otherwise)
This cat has been around since the late seventies, and people can’t get enough of her. I guess because the design is childishly simple, and essentially a blank canvas of underwhelming cuteness. A bazillion official products. A bazillion things (like guns) ironically bekittied. Hello Kitty Jesus, Hello Kitty Darth Vader, Hello Kitty Zombie, Hello Kitty everything else. Edgy tattoos. Ugly webcomic Hello Cthulhu is right out. Two strikes. It not only doesn’t amuse me, it makes me actively pissed.
Ninjas vs Pirates
Jeez, when did this start and when will it end??
The least amusing thing on this list. I am really grossed out by the idea of dead flesh (cremation for me, please!) and also zombies are just so popular I can’t help but be annoyed. People talking about the “science” of it, about the logistics of a zombie apocalypse, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies…they all fall flat with a sickening splat. That’s that.
