New Rule 1: Stop giving me that pop-up ad for classmates.com! There's a 
reason you don't talk to people for 25 years. Because you don't 
particularly like them! Besides, I already know what the captain of the 
football team is doing these days: mowing my lawn.

New Rule 2: Don't eat anything that's served to you out a window unless 
you're a seagull. People are acting all shocked that a human finger was 
found in a bowl of Wendy's chili. Hey, it cost less than a dollar. What 
did you expect it to contain? Trout?

New Rule 3: Stop saying that teenage boys who have sex with their hot, 
blonde teachers are permanently damaged. I have a better description for 
these kids: lucky bastards.

New Rule 4: If you need to shave and you still collect baseball cards, 
you're a dope. If you're a kid, the cards are keepsakes of your idols. 
If you're a grown man, they're pictures of men.

New Rule 5: Ladies, leave your eyebrows alone. Here's how much men care 
about your eyebrows: do you have two of them? Okay, we're done.

New Rule 6: There's no such thing as flavored water. There's a whole 
aisle of this crap at the supermarket... water, but without that watery 
taste. Sorry, but flavored water is called a soft drink. You want 
flavored water? Pour some scotch over ice and let it melt. That should 
be your flavored water.

New Rule 7: Stop messing with old people. Target is introducing a 
redesigned pill bottle that's square, with a bigger label. And the top 
is now the bottom. And by the time grandpa figures out how to open it, 
his arse will be in the morgue. Congratulations, Target, you just solved 
the Social Security crisis.

New Rule 8: The more complicated the Starbucks order, the bigger the 
a**hole. If you walk into a Starbucks and order a "decaf grande 
half-soy, half-low fat, iced vanilla, double-shot, gingerbread 
cappuccino, extra dry, light ice, with one Sweet-n'-Low and one 
NutraSweet," ooh, you're a huge a**hole.

New Rule 9: I'm not the cashier! By the time I look up from sliding my 
card, entering my PIN number, pressing "Enter," verifying the amount, 
deciding, "No, I don't want cash back", and pressing "Enter" again, the 
kid who is supposed to be ringing me up is standing there eating my 
Almond Joy.

New Rule 10: Just because your tattoo has Chinese characters in it 
doesn't make you spiritual. It's right above the crack of your a**. And 
it translates to "beef with broccoli." The last time you did anything 
spiritual, you were praying to God you weren't pregnant. You're not 
spiritual. You're just high.

New Rule 11: Competitive eating isn't a sport. It's one of the seven 
deadly sins. ESPN recently televised the US Open of Competitive Eating, 
because watching those athletes at the poker table was just too damned 
exciting. What's next, competitive farting? Oh wait. They're already 
doing that. It's called "The Howard Stern Show."

New Rule 12: I don't need a bigger mega M&M. If I'm extra hungry for 
M&Ms, I'll go nuts and eat two.

New Rule 13: If you're going to insist on making movies based on crappy, 
old television shows, then you have to give everyone in the Cineplex a 
remote so we can see what's playing on the other screens.  Let's 
remember the reason something was a television show in the first place 
is that the idea wasn't good enough to be a movie.

New Rule 14: No more gift registries. You know, it used to be just for 
weddings. Now it's for babies and new homes and graduations from rehab. 
Picking out the stuff you want and having other people buy it for you 
isn't gift giving, it's the white people version of looting.

New Rule 15: and this one is long overdue: No more bathroom attendants. 
After I zip up, some guy is offering me a towel and a mint, as if I just 
had sex with George Michael. I can't even tell if he's supposed to be 
there, or just some freak with a fetish. I don't want to be on your 
webcam, dude. I just want to wash my hands.
