Bill Maher’s New Rules For 2007

New Rule: Stop giving me that pop-up ad for Classmates.com! There’s a reason you don’t talk to people for 25 years – because you don’t particularly like them! Besides, I already know what the captain of the football team is doing these days – mowing my lawn.

New Rule: Don’t eat anything that’s served to you out a window unless you’re a seagull. People are acting all shocked that a human finger was found in a bowl of Wendy’s chili. Hey, it cost less than a dollar. What did you expect it to contain? Lobster?

New Rule: Stop saying that teenage boys who have sex with their hot, blonde teachers are permanently damaged. I have a better description for these kids: “lucky”.

New Rule: If you need to shave and you still collect baseball cards, you’re a dope. If you’re a kid, the cards are keepsakes of your idols. If you’re a grown man, they’re pictures of men.

New Rule: Ladies, leave your eyebrows alone. Here’s how much men care about your eyebrows: Do you have two of them? Okay, we’re done.

New Rule: There’s no such thing as flavoured water. There’s a whole aisle of this crap at the supermarket – water, but without the watery taste. Sorry, but flavoured water is called a soft drink. You want flavoured water? Pour some scotch over ice and let it melt. That’s your flavoured water.

New Rule: Stop screwing with old people. Target is introducing a redesigned pill bottle that’s square, with a bigger label. And the top is now the bottom. And by the time grandpa figures out how to open it, his ass will be in the morgue. Congratulations, Target, you just solved the Social Security crisis.

New Rule: The more complicated the Starbucks order, the bigger the jerk. If you walk into a Starbucks and order a “decaf grande, half-soy, half-low fat, iced vanilla, double shot, gingerbread cappucino, extra dry, light ice, with one Sweet ‘n’ Low, and one Nutra-Sweet,” oooh, you’re a huge jerk.

New Rule: I’m not the cashier! By the time I look up from sliding my card, entering my PIN, pressing “Enter,” verifying the amount, deciding, no, I don’t want cash back, and pressing “Enter” again, the kid who is supposed to be ringing me up is standing there eating my Almond Joy.

New Rule: Just because your tattoo has Chinese characters in it doesn’t make you spiritual. It’s right above the crack of your ass and it translates to “Beef with Broccoli”. The last time you did anytihng spiritual, you were praying to God you weren’t pregnant. You’re not spiritual, you’re just high.

New Rule:  Competitive eating isn’t a sport. It’s one of the seven deadly sins. ESPN recently televised the U.S. Open of Competitive Eating, because watching those athletes at the poker table was just too damned exciting. What’s next, competitive farting? Oh wait, they’re already doing that. It’s called “The Howard Stern Show”.

New Rule:  I don’t need bigger, mega M&Ms. If I’m extra hungry for M&Ms I’ll go nuts and eat two.

New Rule:  If you’re going to insist on making movies based on crappy, old television shows, then you have to give everyone in the Cineplex a remote so we can see what’s playing on the other screens. Let’s remember the reason something was a television show in the first place is that the idea wasn’t good enough to be in a movie.

New Rule:  No more gift registries. You know, it used to be just for weddings. Now it’s for babies and new homes and graduations from rehab. Picking out the stuff you want and having people buy it for you isn’t gift giving, it’s the white people version of looting.

New Rule:  And this one is long overdue: No more bathroom attendants. After I zip up, some guy is offering me a towel and a mint like I just had sex with George Michael. I can’t even tell if he’s supposed to be there or just some freak with a fetish. I don’t want to be on your webcam, dude. I just want to wash my hands.

New Rule:  When I ask how old your toddler is, I don’t want to hear “27 months.” “He’s two” will do just fine. He’s not a cheese. And I didn’t really care in the first place.

New Rule:  If you ever hope to be a credible adult and want a job that pays better than minimum wage, then for God’s sake don’t pierce or tattoo every available piece of flesh. If so, then plan your future around saying, “Do you want fries with that?”

  1. Most of these are spot on! I especially agree with the cashier one. Of course, you are also supposed to bag the groceries. Don’t the cashiers get that they won’t have jobs for very much longer?

  2. They’re already being phased out thanks to U-Scan.

  3. Yes, I know, but you would think that the cashiers would make an effort to show you the kind of customer service you miss when you go through the U-scan, instead of making you bag your own groceries. You know, make us REGRET the idea of no cahiers…
