Just put a bear trap inside the house right in front of the door before you go to bed.

Set out a little plastic Christmas tree instead, and decorate with themed trinkets or falsely packaged goods such as Obama's recent shoutout to the UAW while simultaneously doing a free-trade riddled Asian pivot.

Way to take a silly little joke and turn it into some depressing rant about how miserable life is. Sometimes you just gotta lighten up. I'm sure you're a blast at kids birthday parties.

What is that you find depressing in my little rant? Would you like it served up with some raw cauliflower, boiled wheat, and a black molasses drink? Of course you would as such a fare will send many on their way.

It's more fun than pouting, pretending to close the thread, say you're going away, and then come back.

Godzilla verse Robotech, sweet

Seems a bit odd to give up a major plot point in the trailer, but I suppose that saves time in the movie for more giant robot and weird looking monsters beating on each other.

How about the "increasingly untoward use of violence" to make a point? I am a bit more peeved about that.
