However, a new evil has besought itself among the overrated ranks in my life, and today I'm going to address it. In doing so, I'm going to offend some of you, (namely 98% of my Sunday School class) and others will merely say, "Meh," as they click the red X and go on to more interesting blogs that have sex toy giveaways. I can assure you though, this problem needs to be dealt with, and swiftly, before it becomes a national epidemic.
First, let's define and break down the word "overrated." Webster defines it as "to rate, value, or estimate too highly." It's made up of the words "over" and "rate," and if you need it cleared up any more than that, I'd suggest tagging along with my 6 year old to first grade for language lessons. I'd give you the Latin and all that, but I'm trying keep readers here.
If something is overrated, it doesn't necessarily mean it's no good. It could just mean that it's of average caliber, and it's being hyped up by soccer moms and a town desperate for type 2 diabetes, therefore it is held in higher esteem than it should be. This leads me to introduce you to the subject of this blog today.

Hold the phone.
$0.40 an ounce, you say? That's amazing! How do they do it so cheap? Well let me stop you right there and tell you about my one and only experience in the Cherry Berry hell-hole.
I go in and immediately find what I want. Cheesecake flavored
My total? It was somewhere in the neighborhood of $234.59. Of course I'm joking, but it was RIDICULOUSLY overpriced. Do you have any idea how many Snickers bars I could have bought? Chop em up and put them in a bin, they're worth their weight in gold, but you can get 25 of them for a quarter at Wal-Mart.
So here's the deal. All you folks out there that continue to suck off the sugary teat of Cherry Berry, can you please do me one tiny favor? Stop blabbing about how good it is, and "OH MY GOD IF YOU CHECK IN THERE ON FACEBOOK YOU CAN GET 20 CENTS OFF!" I am sick of hearing about it. It's overrated, and you're not helping. Also, something's not healthy if the company providing it makes their walls out of Nerf material so kids on a sugar rush don't kill themselves. When you describe it to someone, don't make it sound as if you'll go in and meet Jesus, okay?
Color me out of line, but I'm pretty sure Jesus sticks to Braums.
**Pretty much everything about the establishment has been embellished to make my point. Just like you embellish how AMAZING it is on Facebook. Shut it. Also, as a Christian, I'm obligated to explain to you that Jesus is everywhere, Yes, even Cherry Berry and Chapel Hill.
