Even months after I first heard it, John Mayer's "Waiting on the World to Change" still pushes me into a near-homicidal rage.

I am giving him his own tag of detestation just to get across how deeply, deeply, deeply I loathe that song.

Uuuuuugh. I don't know that song, but "The Real World" was enough to earn my hatred forever, and "Wonderland" or whatever the fuck that piece of TRITE SHIT was called is ONE OF THE WORST POP SONGS EVER WRITTEN. IT MAKES MY EARS BLEED.

The phrase "sucks eggs" never sounds particularly derisive to me; some of the coolest animals suck eggs.

Your assessment is nonetheless correct. That song is ripe shit.

Out of curiosity, I looked the origin of the term up!

Apparently the original saying meant not that something was bad, but that it was thiefy - as in, an animal sucking the goodies out of an egg on the sly. However, in its modern usage it is mostly just a polite substitute for "cock".

HA! I'm not nearly as off base as I thought. Your sleuthing, and usage of "thiefy" as an adjective, has brightened my day!
