We need your rage for a new TMN feature

Next month, we are starting a new TMN feature called Crowdsource, and for its first installment, we want your rage. Here Is the Product I Hate and Why We want to know what you feel indeniably, unequivocally hateful about. Think of all the crap polluting the world. What current consumer product or category of products do you find abysmally bad, wrong, and infernal? That you hate so much, you can't tolerate its existence for one more second? We invite you to bombastically tell us, in 100 words or less, of your misery. For example, cheeseburger-flavored Doritos. As Mr. Womack put it recently, "As a chip, it is both flavor and anti-flavor. It's a goddam bad idea. It's for people who open an American cheese single, throw out the cheese, and eat the plastic." For Crowdsource, he'll go on at length. So go to town. Be mellifluous with your spite. That rot in your gut is doing no good inside. It's time to let it out. Entries should be about 100 words, but up to 300 if you're angry enough. Send to by Tuesday, Nov. 2, 9:00 p.m. Eastern.

Rosecrans Baldwin co-founded TMN with publisher Andrew Womack in 1999. He is the author of three books, including his latest novel The Last Kid Left (NPR’s Best Books of the Year). His nonfiction appears in a variety of magazines, mostly GQ. More information can be found at More by Rosecrans Baldwin
