    The title says it all! What do you find "uncool" or not so fun? What are those annoying things in life that you just can't get around?

    I'd like to keep this tourney fun so ixnay on such depressing things as plague, famine, and Michael Bay movies.

    Everyone gets four automatics. Let's shoot for 32 or 64. I've already started the list.

    Uncool Things

    Messing with people when they're passed out drunk [​IMG]

    Going to garage sales with your mother

    Shaving

    Having lustful thoughts about a hot chick and then finding out you're old enough to be her father

    Having lustful thoughts about a hot chick and then finding out she's old enough to be your mother

    People who get in the express lane with too many items

    People who purposely drive slow in the fast lane

    MAR only dvds

    Eating alone in a restaurant

    Treppenwitz—the wit of the stairs, referring to the witty and devastating comeback that occurs to you too late (as you are leaving the party, already past the door and outside on the stairs).

    When you get to the point that the only pretty girls who give you an encouraging look are hookers

    Descending into an HTF discussion with a troll

    Defacing, not returning or otherwise mistreating something borrowed from a public library.

    Getting a boner at work for no reason

    Buying a soda and having it explode when you open it

    Seeing a spider in the rear view mirror of the car when your driving

    Going all in with pocket Aces, and losing to a 2-8 off suit.

    Urkel

    Mayonnaise

    Speedos

    Back hair

    Skinny ties.

    Inheritance tax.

    Alcopops: Skyy Blue, Smirnoff Ice, Tequiza, etc

    Having lustful thoughts about a hot chick and then finding out (too late) she's a he

    Disco

    Migraines.

    Really Really Really hot days, and nothing to cool yourself down with.

    Finishing putting something together, then looking at the instructions and realizing you've done it wrong.

    Plantar's Warts. Never had one, but I've heard they can be quite painful.

    Carrot Top

    Chain Movie Theaters

    When Someone You've Got "Feelings" For Already Has An S.O. (Extra points if said S.O. is a real asshole/bitch)

    Mullets

    Being the last person picked in a pick up game of *whatever*

    Blowing the dust off an object and forgetting to close your eyes (and getting an eyefull of said dust).

    People talking on cell-phones in a movie theater.

    Jumping over the seats in front of you at a baseball game in order to take away a foul ball from a 4-year old.

    Sweat pit stains on shirts

    Bathroom mold and mildew

    bird crap on a clean car

    "Not tonight, honey"

    Falling asleep during a movie and not being able to finish it that night

    "Long waits" at Netflix

    Telemarketers

    Nonsense blah, blah, blah in work meetings

    Sh*t colored cars

    Cops hiding the bushes/under an overpass for speeding violators (Are they running out of some more important things to do?!)

    Watching live your favorite sports team/player being massacred by an opposing team/player

    Starting a thread that gets no replies.

    Bob Saget

    Unmoderated movie forums

    Commercials at the movies

    Sumo wrestlers in thongs.

    Teenagers running their mouths off during an entire 2-hour movie, making smart-ass MST3K comments during the entire film.

    Smoking in movie theaters.

    Co-workers who conduct all of their personal business and conversations, none of it pertaining to you, in your cubicle.

    Slow Drivers

    Insomnia

    Throwing up in your mouth.

    Broken Bones

    the morning after you eat really spicy food

    Eating alone in a restaurant—anyone who has traveled on business much knows this one pretty well. You can always tell the pros (or really desperate, such as myself) who arrive with a book.

    Treppenwitz—the wit of the stairs, referring to the witty and devastating comeback that occurs to you too late (as you are leaving the party, already past the door and outside on the stairs).

    Is there a pooping monkey at stake here?

    1) Urkel

    2) Mayonnaise

    3) Speedos

    4) Back hair

    Don't believe me? Picture Urkel with back hair wearing only a speedo and rubbing mayonnaise on himself. Not very cool, now is it?
