The 10 Commandments of Orange County


Greetings my friends. Behold the 10 Commandments of Orange County!

  1. Thou shalt never ever ever ever take public transportation. Never. Ever.
  2. Thou shalt wear fake eyelashes, get fake boobs and sport fake tans – “fake” is the new “real”.
  3. Thou shalt always refer to our baseball team as the Anaheim Angeles no matter what their retarded brain dead owner renames them.
  4. Thou shalt knock down old strip malls and replace them with new and less exciting strip malls – for no apparent reason.
  5. Thou shalt always drive thy Hummer to Whole Foods, Trader Joe’s and Mother’s Market.
  6. Thou shalt embrace Disneyland in all of its glory!
  7. Thou shalt reserve the right to endlessly bitch and moan about Disneyland in spite of commandment number six. It’s our park and it’s a love/hate relationship.
  8. Thou shalt deny the existence of The Real Housewives of Orange County as something that actually exists in the universe. You can’t make me watch it… you can’t you can’t you can’t!!!
  9. Thou shalt not lie cheat and steal – unless it’s for a really good reason, like getting better grades.
  10. And last but not least…

  11. Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor’s McMasnion.

The idea for this post was ripped off, er, I mean inspired by, a similar post over at the LA Metroblog

    I think #7 was meant to reference #6.

    I dig it. I cracked up at the LA verison this morning, and in my mind made up a list like this. I am glad you did this.

    I like that every post uses their own 10 Commandments picture. Viva le Google!

    thou shall always have sunglasses and know the freeways of the OC. It’s called the Orange Crush for a reason.

    Thou shall NEVER wear Dodger Blue during the Freeway Series. Thou shall remind Arte our team plays in Anaheim when meeting the owner face to face.

    I liked the fact you tossed in the "real wives of OC". I heard about it, and watched all of 5 minutes before I was wretching. I thought the braindead wives of TO and Encino was bad enough.
