As TiBber Gravitas pointed out, Andy Rooney is no longer with us. Now, I know we already have a Rant & Rave thread. However, the custom on that thread is to post rants that are pretty short and to the point, like: RANT: My girlfriend turned out to have a penis. Back to drinking. But Andy had a different style. So, on this thread we're going to memorialize him as he would have wanted. Post your best rants in the Andy Rooney tradition. The best rant will win the TiB Andy Rooney Award. In Andy Rooney tradition, the best rants will be those: With excessive length and detail Where the vitriol of the rant is totally out of proportion to the banality of the subject That liberally use statistics to justify their points (real statistics preferred, fake statistics acceptable) Have at it, TiBbers; I expect some creativity here.
