Things I hate more than Mondays

- Sharks
- Jay Leno's monologues
- Coke with Lime
- Russell Crowe
- Mascots
- Any kind of pot pie (i.e., chicken pot pie, turkey pot pie, etc.)
- James Van Der Beek
- Men who talk about working out all the time
- Men who wear way-too-tight shirts
- Screech from "Saved by the Bell"

I know I will take a lot of crap for that last one, but you guys seriously--he is horrible. He is the reason I couldn't watch the show. Every time he said anything, I wanted to punch him in the neck. He was just so excruciatingly not funny. Here are a couple of examples taken from

Mr. Belding: Class, this is my brother... Rod Belding.
Screech: Wow. A building with two Beldings, one of whom is balding.

Mr. Belding: Screech, you can't elope.
Screech: Who're you calling a cantaloupe, you melon head?

Just come on. Don't even tell me that doesn't make you feel homicidal.

his looks and voice just make things even worse. If your going to have someone be that cheesy and annoying, at least make him hot.

Johnny Virgil said...

ever notice it's the guys who talk about working out all the time that wear the too-tight shirts?

An interesting corollary is that women who *don't* work out also seem to wear too tight shirts.

I couldn't agree more.

I don't see how that character could possibly be any worse.

ARM said...

I agree that Screech is annoying as fuck, but SBTB is the best ever.

Oh, and good point about the too tight of shirts on girls, Johnny's pretty nasty.

I agree with the too tight of a shirt thing. Girls that have no reason to be wearing them shouldn't! Plain and simple. No one wants to see the folds! They aren't sexy no matter how much you may think they are!

i caught a few minutes of saved by the bell this morning and screech said some dumb things and i wondered how i could watch the show so much when i was a kid since it is so dumb.

Actually, scallop pot pie is pretty good.

Just sayin'.

Violet said...

I'm with you on the Screech thing. Unbearable!

ARM said...

Wasn't Violet Screech's girlfriend?

D said...

The men who talk about working out all the time wear it as a badge of honor or something. They are usually really unproportional also. (little legs)

I think Carly met screech once.

I was going to type more but I have to go work out now.

Carly said...

Well I actually worked with someone eerily similar to Screech. I've repressed the memory but it had something to do with trans, uh, nope, can't go there.
