When I redesigned the site, I created my "Obscure friends" list as a way of letting all the friends of ObscureCraft share in all the traffic this site generates. It has since come to my attention that the only people who read this site are the ones that are already Obscure friends. Very well, then. Instead of directing the masses to my friends, I will direct my friends to my enemies! Read that sentence again if you have to.
I give you the inaugural class of my Obscure enemies list.State Farm insurance
My feud with State Farm has already been well documented
. Indeed, the backlash is continuing to grow
. State Farm can work its way off this list with either a public flogging of the ad executive responsible, or maybe just an apology. I haven't decided yet.The Hater
As with State Farm, The Hater being added to my enemies list should not be news
to anyone who reads this space regularly. For posterity, here is photographic evidence of The Hater's crimes against me.
The Boston Red Sox
Before 2004, Boston knew its place. The Red Sox were Charlie Brown, and the Yankees were Lucy. They might get close, but you always knew the Yankees were going to pull that football away. Then, all of a sudden, Boston fans became the most insufferable fans.
Well you know what, all you Yankee haters that accused them of buying a championship all those years? Guess what World Series winner had the highest payroll? That's right, the 2007 Boston Red Sox. Oh, and guess who is second? That's right, the 2004 Boston Red Sox. And its not even close.
Oh, and by the way: George Mitchell (of the Mitchell report on steroids), who is a part owner of the Boston Red Sox, just happens to find more Yankees than any other team were juicing? Way to find an impartial investigator, Major League Baseball. Now I have to listen to people carry on about Roger Clemens and Jason Giambi while David Ortiz and his enormous forehead and cheesy facial hair are celebrated. I call bullshit. Bullshit!Friendly's
A visit to Friendly's ends in only two ways: you go their for lunch or dinner and it is disgusting, or you go their for ice cream and wait 2 hours. These are you options. How is this chain still in business?
An in case anyone doubts the extent to which I hate Friendly's, last time a group of people tried to get me to set foot inside, they found themselves without a ride home.Entropy
In case a collapsing economy, an endless war, global warming, and the popularity of TMZ weren't enough to upset you, guess what: entropy is marching us towards the unstoppable heat death of the universe. Entropy is a bitch.
