So what's the deal with Ovaltine? The jar is round, the mug is round...it should be called Roundtine. The fact that it isn't grinds my gears. Pisses me right the hell off.

Roundtine rolls off the tongue more easily than ovaltine, too.

Keep Spongebob, though.

To hell with Spongebob... Hell, I think that giant piece of trash is the reason why the next generation of children are forgetting the classic cartoons like Tom and Jerry, Scooby-Doo. Looney Tunes, etc.

So, less Spongebob and more Penguins of Madagascar.

Congratulations, I don't think either he or I have been seen as allies before. Awesome.

You manage to balance agitation with just enough salient points to keep things interesting. Kind of a low-rent DG_Now.

I apologize for my pugnacious behavior yesterday. It was very un-Christian-like of me to act that way. I'm not leaving this place, but I will try to get along with everyone here instead of jumping down their throats.

Here's a new gear grinder: Jimmie Johnson's recent NASCAR dominance. I've almost stopped following NASCAR now because of all his sucess.

Wow, I actually am agreeing with Panhead1 here. I can't stand Jimmie Johnson (or Kyle Busch for that matter).

He's become the Yankees of NASCAR.

And frankly, I don't like the direction NASCAR is going in right now. The Car of Tomorrow seems to have made races less competitive, Jimmie Johnson wins every year, the Chase is a joke, attendance is at an all-time low, and there's really no more big personalities left in the sport. They need to go back to how things used to be in the old Winston Cup - racing hard, bumping everybody else, and of course, rubbing it in their faces in victory lane.

I can understand what I've done to get on his ignore list. I apologized for it too, in case nobody noticed.

If he wasn't ignoring you, I'm sure he'd let you know.

The only thing haters hate more than winners are consistent winners. The Yankees were already mentioned...add the Celtics, Lakers, Red Wings, Steelers, 49ers, Cowboys, and Patriots to that. Me, I don't mind one bit that JJ pulled off the 4-peat...while ruffling feathers in the process. Just ask Jeff Gordon.

As to the second part, didn't Carl Edwards just pull that off like two weeks ago? He pretty much "did what he had to do" to win that race. :P
