(Remember, overrated doesn't mean bad. Just that the perception of a certain thing is greater than its reality.)


10. Sweet Potato Pumpkin Pie

(I refuse to delineate between the two because they're the exact same fucking thing.)


9. Spleens

(Are supposed to protect you from infections. But niggas die from infections every day. And I have the sniffles. Someone at Team Spleen is stealing paychecks.)

8. Being From Somewhere

7. Yield Signs

(They're just stop signs with bad self-esteem.)

6. The Truth

5. Dreams

(Don't actually exist. Or mean anything. But the great ones make you pissed they're not real and the bad ones make you scared to sleep. Fuck dreams. I'll punch a dream in the throat.)


4. The Future

3. Fellatio

(At its very best, is just a hopeful but inaccurate facsimile of actual vagina. It's Seth Curry to Steph Curry. It's coital Splenda.)


2. Conversations With People

(99% of the people you've ever talked to either don't give a damn about what you have to say or stopped giving a damn three minutes after you were done saying it.)


1. White people

Damon Young is the editor-in-chief of VSB, a columnist for, and the author of What Doesn't Kill You Makes You Blacker (Ecco/HarperCollins)
