Jive talk. Just watch this What's My Line? mystery guest episode with Julie London. All 4 panelists seem rather annoyed by her "You know, like" answers. They seem confused as to what she even says. Then moderator John Daly tries to translate it into normal speech & then at one point ends it with "You dig?". Everybody laughs, even Julie. But yes, it is painful to hear.

Just to make sure, I want to point out that the show had guests who had to mislead the panelists so they wouldn't guess their identity, and one way was to deliberately throw them off by speaking differently than they did in reality. Julie London was a pretty well-known celebrity of that era and had a successful career as a jazz singer. "Julie Is Her Name" vols. 1 and 2 are personal favorites, and she scored a very big hit with the song Cry Me A River from vol. 1. She was speaking that way because it was part of the pop culture of that time. She was playing the game and doing the same comedy bit as others back then, including the Brian Wilson favorite "How To Speak Hip". She did not speak that way in real life, it was for that game show.

On those same lines, if that kind of talk is a pet peeve, definitely avoid reruns of the 50's TV shows "77 Sunset Strip" and "The Many Loves Of Dobie Gillis", especially the characters Edd "Kookie" Byrnes and Maynard G. Krebs.  Grin  That lingo was their whole schtick.

That post is dedicated to all the hep cats and cool kitties out there makin' the scene, you dig?

2guitarfool2002: Yes, I'm aware of the rules. Smiley I know every panelist that's been there, celebrity (f.ex. music field, Frank Zappa, Peter Paul & Mary appeared in the show). That Marilyn Monroe never was there, nor Audrey Hepburn. It's shame that some kinescopes were lost.

I've been saying it's my favorite show in various threads now. Nobody picked it. Julie London is brought to illustrate jive talk which I don't like. It was of the times but the panelists do seem annoyed & confused in that clip. But then again, they're senior than Julie London age group. The oldest is Bennett Cerf, co-founder of "Random House Publishing".

John Daly has the best TV voice, from the shows I'd seen. Art Carney made funny parody of him. It must be in Youtube, search "Art Carney what's my line". & he was mystery guest twice. EDIT: Here's that WML spoof: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_5YyAjryAt8

Thanks for the cat reference (but not for hip talk) :D!

Bumper stickers. Hate 'em. I don't care if your kid is an honor student, or if your kid beat up my honor student, or if you hate Obama, or if you think it's funny that Calvin pisses on a certain baseball team's logo, what religion you are, what (un)clever phrases you're amused by...I just care that you drive safe.

That is actually a pet peeve of mine. I am not sure when "drive safely" became "drive safe" but it drives me crazy.  Cheesy So does shorthand texting. An educated adult who writes "Ur correct" or "leave B4 it rains" sounds like an idiot to me. (I also love decals. I have them all over my Jeep. I do not care for the ones that you mention though. I like fun ones.)

re: Bumper Stickers
I have a photo that I took several years ago of the back of a truck in a parking lot. Took the picture because it was plastered in bumper stickers. "Obama - Undocumented Worker", "Where's the Birth Certificate?" "drill Drill DRILL!" etc.
No it didn't change my mind. Made the truck owner look silly, and gave me a chuckle as it was so over the top.

A big pet peeve is someone who doesn't agree with a post calling the original poster names such as "Libtard" instead of stating what exactly is so disagreeable about the post. The worst is "Fake News!"
Seems like a lot of people are putting their fingers in their ears, saying "lalala" loudly so as to not hear the other side. (This goes for both sides)

That's cool, I was posting as a big Julie London fan (and Bobby Troup fan) in case anyone thought that was the real Julie talking in hep cat like that.  Smiley

Speaking of 50's TV show parodies, one of the best I've seen was Sid Caesar spoofing "This Is Your Life" where he gets chosen but the security guards have to literally chase him around the studio to drag him onto the stage for him to be the guest on the show. Has to be seen to be appreciated.

I might have listed this within the thread already, but frankly it's not worth digging through 11 pages. So, here's one that really annoys me: when people begin a sentence with "And again..." before going on to say something they have not yet said. It seems to be an increasingly common practice that I assume is nothing more than "um" or "uh," just a placeholder while someone formulates his actual thoughts. Other times I think it's just intended to emphasize the upcoming point. Either way, it's annoying.

Bullying. All forms of bullying. I've got a long list of pet peeves (that i'll eventually share here) but none affect my life as profoundly. I can't stand it.

Going to YouTube to listen to a symphony and reading the top comment: "I have to listen to this sh*t for homework".

A minor peeve, perhaps. But still...

The acronym GOAT for Greatest Of All Time, especially when it comes to sports. 

Growing up, if you were the GOAT in a sport, that likely meant you cost your team a big game.  Now, if you're a GOAT, you're the greatest.  Weird. 

Less annoying is when I go on Facebook in mid July and see posts like "I'm so ready for leaves, hoodies, bonfires, and pumpkin spice lattes."  Summer goes fast enough, let's not rush it.

I forgot to mention this one yesterday. 

Beer snobs

I can handle music snobs (I've been accused of being one, but I've paid to see Poison in concert, so.....), movie snobs, etc etc. 

But pretentious beer snobs are the worst.  "Oh, you're drinking a Miller Lite, why not try something with flavor instead of that trash beer?  Here's a Bourbon Barrel Cask Ginger Root Infused Sour IPA." 

Maybe I buy so called "trash beer" because I don't think it's worth it to spend up to $14 for a sixer of craft stuff, or up to $8.00 for a draft at the bar.  Maybe, I actually like the taste.  It was good enough for my grandfather, and my parents.

Every week I spend an hour at the gym. Although the music they play is not what I listen to at home, it has been mostly okay, in-one-ear-and-out-the-other kind of stuff. Very occasionally I've heard something that made my ears prick up.

Unfortunately these days it's super-repetitive to the point of being unlistenable at times. It has driven me out on more than one occasion. Anyway, everyone is working out at their own speed, which is rarely if ever in sync with what's playing. A backcloth of ambient music strikes me as being a much better idea----or even classical music.

A minor peeve, really...
