I think what pisses me off the most about crap like this, is the preemptive damage control AND shutdown of disagreement, or as DNT says, “lecturing us about how we’re being sanctimonious.” Indeed!

Just get off our backs and let us flog some luxuries.
Be right back, will be in the bathroom extracting aforementioned undies.
