Against couch pillows

"If they took all the pillows away, and there was no more in the world, do you think that would affect you adversely, do you think you would notice it? Do you think it would bother you, like throughout the day, and oh there's no more pillows on this couch. I know at night, it would have an effect at night. What? A world without pillows. Twilight zone episode, there are no pillows. There's cushions, to sit on, but no pillows."

That's Larry David, in an early episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm, and I could not agree more. The only time couch pillows are good is when you spill some tomato sauce and you're too lazy to clean it up so you just put a pillow over the spill until somebody else deals with it.
