Random Thoughts: Super Nintendo, World Cup, and Taliban

Posted on June 6, 2014 9:00 am

I’m from the generation that had loud, angry shouting matches about whether Super Nintendo or Sega Genesis was better (it was SNES).

Before you belittle arguing about game systems, would you argue for the art of the Renaissance? Well, SNES brought way more hours enjoyment.

I propose to further differentiate soccer from football, we now refer to soccer as “European ball kicking.”

The new White House position seems to be that everyone in the military other than Bergdahl is awful.

Canadians are a good example of the “uncanny valley.” They’re so much like Americans but off just slightly in a way that makes them creepy.

I’m a big supporter of feminism and women smashing the patriarchy. I think that’s really cute.

The World Cup is when 3rd world countries gather around to watch people kick a ball until they all go mad and get violent. Purpose unknown.

I just didn’t get the 16-bit Sonic games. “Look how fast he can run! Now here’s an underwater level you have to carefully move through.”

Mr. President, during speeches blink three times in rapid succession if you are only saying things because the Taliban is making you.

Finally listened to some hip hop. Didn’t care for it.

Remember when the Japanese allegedly bombed us and the president was all like, “Let’s declare war on Germany!” What the hell was that about?

    That’s too long – I propose we call it “Ladies Football”.

    But do they have “ball girls” or “ball boys?”

    I understand they have a lotta balls.

    Since this form of ball-kicking also occurs in South America, Africa, Australia, India, Canada and Mexico, how about we just call it “un-American ball kicking?”

    Obama excuse #882749227: Every terrorist engaged with serving tea to a traitorous dirt-bag deserter is only a part time terrorist at best.

    I’m with Harvey. Go with ladyball.

    Last time I tried European ball kicking, the European was bigger than me and objected strenuously.

    And right after the war, FDR returned Hitler to Japan, Obama said it so it must be true.

    I’ve always thought that hip hop artists sounded like auctioneers. I might just be an old fart, though.
