Broken 2000:
100 Reasons Why We Still Suck
Written by:  Alex Sandell

I've been suffering from some serious 1900's post-partum depression, as of late.  I know 2000 is  just another insignificant number, but the general public keeps telling me that it should mean something.  All the politicians keep telling me what a great state the world is in, on the brink of this new millennium.  All the marketers keep telling me I should celebrate by buying a Chevy truck to take through the drive-thru at DQ to celebrate the "MEALennium."  Yet, even after watching all of the 30 second television spots and gulping down two .99 cent hot fudge sundaes, I still find myself focusing on all the SHIT we're bringing with us as we enter a new century. So, in the typical upbeat Juicy Cerebellum fashion you've all grown so accustomed to, I want to leave the 1900's behind by pointing out all of the things we're still doing wrong, even as we enter the 21st century. 

Thing Number 1:  We're still racist.  
2:  We're still homophobic.
3:  We still don't understand that homophobia and racism are the same thing.
4:  We're still self-centered little bastards.
5:  We still think of our petty race as "heroic," every time we watch, "It's a Wonderful Life."
6:  Jay Leno still isn't funny.
7:  We still lie to our children about fictional characters such as Santa Claus, The Easter Bunny and God.
8:  The spirit of Christmas is still being mass-produced by Hallmark.
9:  There are still Republicans.
10:  Republicans are still deluding themselves just as badly as they ever have.
11:  There's still no socialized medicine.  
12:  There are still people wasting all their time on stopping the SPAM inside of their emailbox rather than concentrating on the millions of problems outside of their house.  
13:  There still hasn't been a movie as good as Star Wars.
14:  People are still lying when they say they don't care about looks.
15:  My ex still hasn't figured out the meaning of the word "forever" and is still busy freezing her ass off up in Sweden, half a world away from me.
16:  We still haven't bombed Sweden.
17:  I still have feelings for my ex; even though I wouldn't mind America using her entire country as a nuclear bomb testing facility.
18:  People still hate whatever they don't understand.
19:  People still don't understand me.
20:  My butt is still hairy.
21:  People are still having babies at a rate that will prove disastrous to the world that they live in.
22:  We're still polluting, without a second thought to the consequences.
23:  Chatrooms are still filled with idiots.
24:  Idiots still intrigue me.
25:  I'm still getting hatemail from a lot of idiots.
26:  The Information age is still doing nothing but proving how much our sex-drive controls us.
27:  The naked women in the Penthouse video I'm watching right now still haven't came to life, walked out of my TV, and asked me for a date.
28:  I'm still hoping they will.
29:  There's still no one who has had the balls (or should I say "breasts") to go through with becoming the next Super Juicy Topless Girl.

36:  Innocent people are still getting killed, every day, in drug wars, because of it.
37:  We're still in "the wake of the Columbine tragedy."
38:  We'll still be there at this time next year.
39:  I still say that's a pretty damn long wake.
40:  The NRA is still claiming that guns don't kill people; people do.
41:  That's still the lamest excuse I've heard since, "I wasn't poking holes in the condom, I was sewing it up."
42:  There's still 5 times more people that have promised to contribute to "The Juicy Cerebellum" than have actually contributed.  Please send all cash, checks and money orders to Alex Sandell @ PO BOX 331, ALEXANDRIA MN, 56308.  Thanks. (See thing # 31.)
43:  The rich are still getting richer, and the poor are still staying poor.
44:  Capitalism still sucks.
45:  Corporations are still getting away with murder, while the little guy can't get away with ripping off a candy bar from a corporation.
46:  People are still going to accuse me of being a "commie" because I believe that 80% of the nation's economy shouldn't be going to the upper 20% of people, most of whom have been born into their riches, when the bottom 10% is going hungry or living off stamps.  "The Sperm Lotto"
47:  I'm still pissed I didn't win the sperm lotto.

53:  McDonald's still isn't unionized.  
54:  Unions are still frowned upon by people who haven't worked for a union.
55:  Wal-Mart is still playing that lame anti-union video to its employees, trying to convince them that working bad hours for minimum wage is much better than getting ten bucks an hour, benefits and weekends off.

57:  "The Smurfs" still haven't made a comeback.

86:  Adding the "Mc" before "Nuggets" is still totally nerdy.
87:  Grown adults still don't realize how dorky they sound when they order a box of "McNuggets" with a side order of "McSauce."
88:  I still haven't been able to find "McCondoms" in the McDonald's bathrooms, and some of those McCashiers are pretty McSexy.

96:  Most people still don't have the "chiller" font, and this update will look like shit to them.
97:  Most people are still emailing me at the wrong address, and I won't get their letters, even though I inform them that my new address is alex007@midwestinfo.net

100:  All of them still look like morons.

Happy fucking new year.

ALL responses to this update WILL be responded to within 5 days (if Y2K doesn't get back AT you, first).  I'm sorry I haven't been getting back to a lot of you.  I'm still kind of lazy.
