Design patterns are great...

...when you want to work around the rigidity of object-oriented programming for certain tasks.

It would be really bad to sometimes break the "everything is object-oriented" dogma in order to have a simple design ;)

It reminds me of "modern" C++ programmers who think it's funny and clever (well, it is) to abuse every feature of C++ to emulate features available in better languages (template metaprogramming, blasphemous uses of operator overloading, etc.)
