Thou Shalt Not

With smaller font, he could've added some nuance

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 seriously

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
