The Christmas season is the happiest time of year. We get to spend extra time with our family and friends, and there are endless supplies of cookies. While these few weeks are filled with tons of cheer, it's also the sappiest time of year, especially in the good ol' USA. It's the ideal time for overseas military men to surprise their loved ones, and of course, create tearjerker alert YouTube videos of it all.
The odds of us ever winning the lottery are about as high as our shot at scoring any of the babes we feature: approximately zero. Even still, we can't help but stupidly spend tons of cash on lottery tickets, and even more time staring at those babes.
Black Friday brings out some of the most hilariously strange antics of us Americans. On Thanksgiving we give thanks for all the great stuff in our lives, and just hours later, we're waiting in massive lines and getting in spats with fellow consumers over the latest deals on video games. That's the good ol' USA for you.
Meteorologists have one of the coolest jobs around. Think about it-- they can totally get away with taking on weather 'Gangnam Style' and no one bats an eyelash over it. Al Roker can also do a weird mannequin impression mid-broadcast, and it's completely acceptable. (Although that was really, really strange...) That's why we're not surprised that one of actress Scarlett Johansson's dreams is to read the weather in classic Roker style.
Even though we're self-proclaimed addicts, Facebook can be super confusing. There's that whole copyrighting thing, for one. Turkeys can be voted for pardoning and a cat petition can get liked 120,000 times. It's a weird, weird world. Recently, one guy decided to take advantage of the social media site's strangeness by playing an awesome prank on fellow users.
Doctors are some of the creepiest dudes around. We know they do all this good crap for people, but think about it-- does the good ol' doc really need to be touching our junk for that long during a prostate exam? Is he genuinely worried about that slight pain we've been feeling in our butt? Unfortunately, there are very few times a doctor's weird antics are questioned. That is, until now.
If there's one thing that sucks about sports, it's lockouts. Lockouts mean no games on TV, no dude time, and a greater chance we'll have to spend time with our women learning how to cook cheese fondue and make potpourri centerpieces. That's why we've been pretty annoyed about this whole NHL lockout.
Being a politician has to suck. Sure, there are some perks to working for the government, but when you’re in the public eye your entire life is completely exposed, and all your actions are up for scrutiny. Think about it-- political guys can’t even get a boner without it making news. No one has a squeaky clean past, and dirt is bound to be uncovered if you’re a dude running for office.
There's no denying Thanksgiving is a holiday that proves just how awesome Americans are. Think about it-- it's an entire day dedicated to stuffing ourselves with fantastic food, spending time with family and friends and watching football. But what really makes Thanksgiving the ultimate American hol
