Also, "guilty pleasures," doesn't really mean something you feel guilt over. 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.
Maybe Tripel can edit his first post with that definition in it so people don't feel real guilt about posting here!

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!

Peanut M&Ms, One Tree Hill, . There's a lot of other stuff I enjoy, but those are the two with a tinge of embarrassment to them.

One Tree Hill!! That was a guilty pleasure of mine for about a minute. My husband makes too much fun of it the whole time I'm watching, so I finally "saw the light!"

I have ridiculous amounts of useless cartoon and comic book information in my head. I also know loads of songs, artist, album, and year of publication information, which makes walking through the mall fun because I'll just walk through and name songs as we pass stores. It's not that I'm really "in to" comics, cartoons, or loads of music, I just remember things upon hearing, reading, or seeing them once. I try to impress my wife with it; she just laughs at me at best, but normally roles her eyes.
