Occupy Yada Yada Yada


Lately, it seems the world is occupying itself.

I’ve heard activists say they’re protesting everything from corporate greed (understandable) to gambling (OK, well maybe not this exactly, but something equally as ridiculous).

I get it, the world is ticked off. And they have every right to be. But I’m taking my own stance. I’m starting my OWN movement!

It’s called “Occupy Yada Yada Yada.” And here is a list of 20 things I’m protesting!

  1. Math, just math
  2. Politician signs on street corners
  3. Office-made coffee
  4. Ants
  5. People who don’t use their turn signals
  6. I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter
  7. Reality T.V.
  8. Mustard
  9. Rest area toilet paper
  10. Frozen chicken nuggets inside vegetable bags
  11. Shag carpenting
  12. Pennies
  13. Eye boogers
  14. Sock fuzz and belly button lint (they’re cousins)
  15. Stores that don’t carry Andes Mints
  16. Wallpaper
  17. Obese squirrels
  18. The death of overalls
  19. Overgrown toenails
  20. And finally … no more Seinfeld episodes!

In honor of Occupy Yada Yada Yada, what do YOU hereby protest?

  1. This a list I can get behind! Well… all except the last one. I love Seinfeld. 🙂 I protest texting at the dinner table. At home or at restaurants, I just hate it. It’s so rude.

    1. Paula! Ha! I LOVE Seinfeld, which is exactly why I was protesting “no more episodes.” 🙂 I’m all with you on the texting at the dinner table. It drives me nuts when people do that. So rude.

  2. Wearing curlers *anywhere* outside a hair salon.
    Folks who leave their turn signals on as they drive by 8 highway exits.
    People who drive with their raincoat belts are hanging out of their car doors.
    Non-retweeters who suck up your retweets of their stuff.
    Fruitcake (‘Tis the season.)

    I”m sure I’ll have more.

    Thanks for this insane, smart ,and funny post, Shari!

  3. Funny, I was thinking about doing some sort of Occupy post as well. I love your list. Office coffee and fake butter would for sure be on my list too.

  4. I have to say, Shari, I find obese squirrels amusing. And I have a feeling their strained hearts will leave you with one less thing to worry about.

    I hope you will not take offense if I protest the overly frequent use of lists in blog posts. (He says being guilty as charged on multiple occasions… 😦 )

C'mon, you MUST be thinking something.
