Disco Shawn. Just because.

1. Typing “your” when you mean “you’re”.

2. Never watching HBO’s “The Wire”.

3. Enjoying any Star Wars films except those in the original trilogy.

4. Driving while texting. (See #1. Don’t be distracted from typing).

5. Avoiding “Bambi” because you don’t want to talk about Bambi’s mom getting shot, but letting the kids watch that “Babar” movie from 1999 in which Babar’s mom totally gets shot.

6. Preferring Coke to Pepsi.

7. Referring to the Emergency Services telephone number in England as “911” instead of the correct “0118 999 881 999 119 725…3”.

8. Letting your kids play soccer. Soccer is boring.

9. Jorts.

10. Thinking Descartes is a direct realist instead of a representational realist.
