50.) The City of Surprise

There's nothing specifically wrong with the city itself; it's the name that bugs us. Surprise!

49.) Live Coverage of Car Chases

Fun when it's O.J. Simpson, not fun when it ends with a suicide on national TV.

48.) The Metal Part of Seatbelts During the Summer

a.k.a. a hot iron.

47.) Amy's Baking Company

MEOW.

46.) Killer Cacti

It does happen sometimes. Cacti kill. And we're not down with that.

I think Sheriff Joe is awesome. I wish we had someone like that as the Sheriff of Los Angeles county.

Lots of moronic New Times haters on this thread. Junior Arpaios.

I am not even white and found that you included white people on the list is pretty offensive. This is nothing more than a liberal list of bitching and moaning. And by the way Ryan Brady, i follow because, believe it or not, new times used to publish great articles about corrupt politicians but now, they just complain in paragraphs about mean joe and the innocent criminals who are here illegally. God, then only reason i used to pick the new times was for savage love, now thats gone too...

One day a year people are patriotic and one day a year people honor the laborer and one day a year people remember past presidents and one day a year some people dress up in scary costumes and give out candy and two days a year some people pay homage to Jesus and one day a year people give thanks but only in anticipation of the six other days of the year that don't totally suck.

This was not only written in bad taste, but poorly written. Whoever wrote this should be fired from the NT. I have grown to expect more from you. Many of the things on this list are very opinionated and do not reflect all Arizonians thoughts on the matter. Some are raciest, and just beyond all thought of good taste. I could go on, but I'm just so pissed that someone would go to the trouble of writing this and that the Phoenix New Times would actually allow this to be posted.

We should be thankful for all the blessings, family and health... (just to mention a few)...take the hate out of your heart... (at leats for a moment) and wish everyone happy thanksgiving and wish them the best. . (What goes around comes around like a boomerang)...just my personal opinion. Happy thanksgiving to all..

This article is so bad that you had to post it twice to get anyone to like it?

Thanks for the heads-up, Mark. I got as far as page 3 --UGH. I, too, am NOT thankful for NT's excuse of an article. Phoenix New Times, you should have left our beautiful state flag OUT of your tasteless, nonsensical, and heartless "article."

#5 Snowbirds pay AZ state taxes and are gone nearly half the time. They double my income as a stylist in the winter and spring. I actually like them. New Times always has to have something to bitch about.

Matthew,

I almost spit out my coffee when I read #31 about the "Bride of Chucky" and again when I read #19 about Jeff Flake's "set"

Thank you for the laughs and,

HAPPY THANKSGIVING.

On #14, don't you love the cell phone towers that look like huge  fake Christmas trees?

Yeah, all the little Nazi wannabes suddenly sound off. Hey, get a clue... New times doesn't give a shit what all you mindless bitches think.

You're obviously an idiot who can't even read the rest of this site. New times still publishes investigative articles galore. In fact, stupid,

there's one ongoing on major corruption in Pinal County and Florence. This list is one of about 100 blog posts New Times publishes every fucking day. Here's an idea, Buzz Killington, don't read it if you don't like it! Read something else. If can even read...

@Rusted Halo The article didn't seem very racy to me.

Not that "Marco Cruz" really cares about articles about corruption, especially if they involve his girlfriend Joe Arpaio.

Ditto that! Doubt he's really "not even white." But if he is Mexican, he's a sad, self-hating SOB.
