    There's a lot of annoying, stressful shit out there in the world. Things in your daily life that are just generally irritating, and you can't really get away from them. Shit like long traffic lights, asshole drivers, customer service centers, and Adele.

    I hate that fat bitch Adele, and yet I cannot get away from her shitty music or hearing or reading about that fat ginger bitch on a daily basis. Its everywhere.

    To cope with this plauge I have resorted to changing the lyrics to her songs to revolve around food. Rolling in the deep? No, rolling in the feast, you fat miserable firecrotch.

    Rumor has it? No no, "this food's fantastic."

    Someone like you? Someone likes foooooooood.

    I find it quite hilarious, and in the annoying brief moment when I skip across one of her horrible songs on the radio, rather than suffer an uncontrollable urge to shove my fist through the radio, I get a brief chuckle instead.

    I highly recommend this strategy to anyone else that is highly irritated by the fat Irish ginger cunt cancer that is Adele.

    Thank you.

    I originally read the title as "Coping Mexicans". I really should slow down and work on my comprehension.

    There's a whole other mechanism that goes to coping with them...

    I cope with it by only listening to sports talk radio.

    I advocate this method. While I do not listen to sports radio, I do only listen to channels that would never play that tripe.

    I have never, ever heard an Adele song. :salute:

    Sometimes it's not by choice--it could be at work, while shopping, hold music on the phone...

    This thread made me laugh...and I thank you for that, J.

    When I left home, I got a job at a horrible fake 50's diner. It was almost as bad as the one in one of my favorite movies "Ghost World". At one point, they played the soundtrack to "Grease" on a loop. I would do 12+ hour shifts where I ran a line and had a lot of turnover.

    I too resorted in changing the words to all the songs to amuse myself and the people working on the line. One of my favorite parody lines was to "You're the One That I Want", which was "I've got crabs, they're multiplying!".

    I used to actually be a fan of that movie, but now I have Fake 50's Diner PTSD. :eek:
