I came across this amusing update on the Ten Commandments today and was inspired to share a few thou shall nots of my own. Arguably some of these are more deserving of appearing in the Decalogue than the successful finalists:
Thou shalt not read Ayn Rand or take her acolytes seriouslyFeel free to add your own in comments.
Thou shalt not worship sitting Presidents or Presidential candidates of either party
Thou shalt not mistreat children
Thou shalt not stop short on the sidewalk
Thou shalt not watch Desperate Housewives, Entourage, Cops or Fox News
Thou shalt not be afraid to call Scientology a cult
Thou shalt not drink Budweiser, Miller or PBR
Thou shalt not embrace the label "hipster"
Thou shalt not discourage doubting or dissent
Thou shalt not wear clothing which advertises ostentatiously for Abercrombie & Fitch, Polo by Ralph Lauren, Dolce & Gabbana or other such designers lacking in taste and subtlety without accepting due payment from the designer for said advertising
