    1. I don't know, with the world we live in today, I think The Simpsons is pretty much a "family show" now.
    2. From time to time, yeah... after a while, though, they start to cramp my jaw from chewing so much.
    3. Nope, I'm with ya on this one! On most burgers, I only like ketchup and pickles, though when it comes to Sonic's burgers, then I don't mind a little mayo and lettuce, but still no mustard or tomator.
    4. No, not really... older people think more of me than people my own age do.

    If you like whimsical cartoony comic books with great artwork and stories, sort of like Carl barks or Don Rosa Scrooge McDuck comics, you'd love Asterix. You can find Asterix comic albums in certain book stores (Barnes and nobles may have them,). Lucky Luke is much harder to find. Out of 50 volumes, only 6 are available in English, unlike Asterix's entire catellogue (except the volume "How Obelix fell into the potion when he was a Baby" which has been out of print in English for years.

    If you go to your Library and they have them, I encourage you to at least flip through them.

    1. Yes, I absolutly agree with you. I just dont find it funny at all
    2.?
    1. I was watching it since I was 4. There are a few episodes that arent exactly appropriate for kids to watch though, but for the most part there really isnt too much in itt
    2. Gummies are the BEST
    3. While I can tolerate burger kings junior whoppers, I really hate things on my hamburger. Although I enjoy chicken sandwiches with lettuice and ketchup, not mayo
    4. I dont think so, maybe some people are like that, but Ihave never met any

    Am I the only one who...

    Is easily irritated by the small tag of the back of my shirt (in the neck area) that I just rip it off?

    OMG! I thought I was the only one too!

    Yeah, I HATE those tags! They drive me bezerk! Everytime I buy a new shirt, sweater, etc, I HAVE to cut the tags off first thing. As far as undershirts are concerned, I'm glad Hanes and Fruit of the Loom started making "tagless" shirts, so that's a relief right there.

    Drtooth, I can't find the original post but I crack up like CRAZY at the Cheat's cartoons! The lines that get me is "I need someone to kick me in the face." "I can do it. I will do it 9 times. ... I was saving that last one for 3 seconds ago"

    And I use to read Asterix in school. But as french comics go, Tintin is where it's at!

    Yeah, Tintin is great.

    Tin Tin's good too.. But I just like how Tintin is imperialistic and Asterix is anti-imperialistic (after all, the Gauls really hate the Romans, and always come out on top). I just got into Lucky Luke last month, since I heard about this movie they were showing in France and parts of Canada. Of course, it's a French parody of American culture we stole from the Mexicans. (Look it up! All our Cowboy Culture was stolen from them).

    I want to add, am I the only one who hasn't seen a McDonald's in a Mall food Court until last year? Seems to me, they either have Burger King, Taco Bell (sometimes both), and a bunch of odd little places you can only find in malls. I mean, that Chinese food isn't as good as the little Mom and Pop places you find every 2 blocks in your hometown.

    Am I the only one who gets bothered if things are too close to their neck? Like, those pull over hoodies. I just want to take scissors and cut the neck. Certain shirts I cant wear because the neck is touching mine. And necklaces, I cant wear necklaces if they are too close to my neck.

    AM I the only one who gets irritated when calling someon who has alltel and has to listen to "Pleas enjoy Alltels access ringbacks while your party is reached." every time?

    1. I LOVE Don Bluth's movies, though I can't say I prefer one or the other... more like I'd take a delicate balance of both.
    2. No, you're not the only one.
    3. Not sure, never really listened to the Who.
    4. Again, you're not the only one, I think just about everyone here despises Reality TV. I will admit, though, I like an occasional Nanny 911.
    5. I think there was once a heated debate here about who Janice "belongs" to.
    6. I'm not the musical type, I'm afraid.
    7. You're bi? Cool... but serious, I'm with you about Angelina Jolie... I mean... good Lord, I'd hate to bump into her in a dark alley in the middle of a stormy night!
    8. I used to play the piano.
    9. Hey, ALL dogs are evil (except for Courage, lol), but the only time I had stitches was in the back of my throat when I had my tonsils taken out.

    I've gotta say I love Angelina and Gwen. I'd rather go on a date with Gwen because she's sweet whereas Angelina is just scary hahaha.

    See from my perspective, Spongebob is like Puff n Stuff from the '70s. A kids show that was just risque enough for older people to identify with. Not just anyone could write the typical Spongebob script.

    Hmm, I really enjoy the English version of Yu Gi Oh! but I do think the original Japanese program is a much deeper show, lol. It's sad that American companies think kids can't take deeper things (even though it's been done so many times! Duh lol)

    Oh PLEASE!

    SpongeBob SquarePants is nothing but mindless crap! It has no solid story structure, the characters are either brainless dopes, or exasperated morons, and watching that show does nothing but melt your brain and destroy the cells in it.

    H.R. Pufnstuf, on the other hand, ended up attracting an audience that would abuse illegal substances (mostly college kids who were drunk and/or stoned from the Friday night before), and saw how psychadelic, technicolored, and acid-trippy the show was, hence now so many people are convinced that the show was drug-induced.

    Yeah see, but again, we've seen all of that in other shows that we do like. I think people have this block in their heads about liking Spongebob, just because it's Spongebob. Of course I could be wrong...but I'm happy! :crazy:

    Well, the world isn't perfect. :halo:

    And I'm sorry, I love H.R. PufnStuf, but mushrooms that smoked? As innocent as that may have been, I wouldn't have gone there!

    But it's probably not a good idea to dwell on that, hehe.

    Well so do I, I just failed to see how it could be compared to SpongeBob...:batty:
