Conan Class

I hate Jay Leno and his big chin. He's not funny. He doesn't make me laugh. He sucks.

I love Conan O'Brien and his big hair. He's very funny. He makes me laugh heartily. He doesn't suck.

I'll follow Conan wherever he goes.

I Watch Rated R Movies, and I'm a Mormon

I made that my title just to get your attention. Let me now put it into context.

My friend Jenny posted this article on her Facebook page today. I read the article, and am happy that my own sentiments have found a public voice in that of the soothing sounds of Doug Wright in the Morning. Just kidding, I don't know what the name of his show is, I just know his voice is downright smoooooooooooth.

If your standard for movie watching is solely based on an absolute "no rated R movies" because of some elusive commandment handed down generations ago, then you aren't using your God-given ability to think and choose. (By the way, I'm going heavy on the boldness with a little dash of sarcasm just to drive home the point. If the no rated R movies thing is actually written somewhere in the annals of the Church, I'd genuinely like to have it pointed out to me. I haven't ardently searched for it, but I can't readily find it either). I realize this is a really risky…
