Annoyed? Me, too!

I was always afraid to voice my opinion that James Blunt's "Back to Bedlam" album was a bit snooze-worthy, if not irritating, as it seems everyone around me is a rabid fan (sorry, Mom, for the call-out).

But now, I can finally come out into the light and say, with the support of 2,000 Brits with bad teeth but good taste in music, that I, too think James Blunt is, on a list of the top 100 most annoying things ever, more annoying than Jehova's Witnesses #38), stepping in dog poo (#26), and warm beer (#56), thanks to a recent survey sponsored by (wait for it...) a company that makes non-dairy milk for the lactose-intolerant.

(People who cut in line and telemarketers beat out Blunt. Don't mess with the Brittish when they're in the middle of dinner or are almost to the front of the terrible food stand, damnit.)

Also noteworthy: our Earl Grey-swilling brothers and sisters pegged Americans at #46 out of their top 100 annoying things, which means we're more irritating than heat rash, Teletubbies and Scientology. Ouch.

You can see the whole list HERE.

Have a good weekend!

Why does trebuchet hate America?

Chuckles, I have no idea what you're talking about. I love America! I'm a red-white-and-blue-blooded American woman! (Who doesn't eat meat and sometimes recycles if she's not wearing shoes that are too cute to walk out in the wet lawn while carrying recylables to the bins in).

Besides, isn't James Blunt British?

You're beautiful! (shall I sing the unedited version?)

Trebuchet said...

Eeeew.

(So yes, please. Particularly if it includes the words "fuck" and/or "your mother").

Egan said...

It does in fact include the expression "you're so fucking high..."

It appears you like him as much as I like John Maier or Jason Mraz.

I think you hate America because you hate our allies in the war on terra, them crazy brits.

I'm in shock - Craig David is on the list - what kind of parallel universe...

Sad that I pick up on the oddest things. It's just the Jali way.
