In my opinion, Comcast is perhaps the single greatest threat to life in the universe.
Now, I fully admit that I do work for cable, but seriously? A few years ago Consumerist visitors rated Comcast the worst company in America – AS BP WAS MARINATING EVERYTHING IN THE GULF IN QUAKER STATE.
Let’s keep some perspective. The tobacco industry KILLS its customers on a daily basis. The coal industry is actively trying to choke us ALL to death, but Comcast is the worst.
If Comcast COMPLETELY fails you, you might have to talk to your girlfriend/wife for a few hours. Is she really that bad?
Oh give me a break. I suppose that Comcast isn’t just about the greatest thing since my great-aunt Winifred told a rather off-color joke at dinner one evening, I must say. It seems these two fellows of differing religions were entering a drinking establishment of some sort — perhaps there were three of them, although it wasn’t clear if each of the three had a distinct religion, or if perhaps two of them had the same religion, with just the one remaining gentleman being of a different faith. ANyway, it seems that one of them was actually a talking grasshopper, and that particular gentleman — or should I say, gentlehopper — approached the barkeep, and mentioned that he had been told, although by whom, I couldn’t say, that this particular drinking establishment had named one of their beverages after him, a fact which both puzzled and pleased him. The barkeep made an excellent retort of sorts, which certainly was amusing, I must say, although I don’t quite recall the exact wording with which he replied.
I agree with Turk that there are other industries far more deserving of this dubious distinction, but between the three choices I’d have to go with Comcast. Comcast isn’t bad because cable television is inherently bad. They’re bad for being so had at what they do. Monsanto and Ticketmaster get a bad rap for doing what they do well. Funny how no one wastes their hate on Syngenta.
