Also, "guilty pleasures," doesn't really mean something you feel guilt over. Here:
Maybe Tripel can edit his first post with that definition in it so people don't feel real guilt about posting here!Guilty Pleasures , a phrase used in western society to denote things (e. g. pop music, novels, films, television shows, books, food) that one really likes but often finds too embarrassing to admit to.
That's a good point, Jessi. The "guilt" in this case is sheer embarrassment or slight sense of shame. It's supposed to be superficial and lighthearted.
That's what I saw some people not getting!
Is there any guilt in listening to ABBA? Not really, but I'm quite embarrassed to admit that I like it. I don't want to like it, but I can't help myself.
Same with the Lime Cactus...it's a horrible beer, truly horrible. It's hardly even a beer at all. That's the snob in me talking, but on the other hand I will plow through a 6-pack in no time.
Now if I were to "plow through a 6-pack in no time," my pleasure would be guilty and I'd be posting in another thread altogether!
