As a learned philosopher once said: Opinions are like assh*les: Everyone’s got one and most of them stink.

What is your most 🔥🔥🔥 take that absolutely infuriates people and you know deep down in your heart is 100% true

As requested people brought the fire..and the questionable takes.
…To be fair some actually made a lot of sense.
I’ll say it again — Don McLean’s “American Pie” is one of the absolute worst songs ever recorded.https://t.co/6AflQqouHy

The Jeff Buckley cover of Hallelujah is whiny dogshit and doesn’t remotely come close to the original version https://t.co/ttTJ9QqiLh

Others were truly shocking.
“South Park” is a fundamentally mean-spirited, nasty show that has made American culture not only coarser, but crueler. https://t.co/zUBrxhk3qU

Or this anti-BBQ sauce diatribe.
BBQ sauce is the quickest way to ruin meat. I want to have a seasoning or flavor that brings out the quality of the food, not a sauce that just blankets everything in the same exact taste. Most if not all BBQ tastes about the same, and its trash. https://t.co/alV0nVQ1fQ

In any case it was the perfect opportunity for haters to pounce, and pounce they did.
Christmas is a trash holiday that makes a lot of people sad for a lot of different reasons. It should be replaced with Second Halloween. https://t.co/erPLJ21BXb
