Howdy! I'm back!
And I missed you guys. I'll come and visit you all and catch up over the weekend.
I've been saving up all kinds of snarkies to share while I was gone.
One that has just been KILLING me involves AOL.
Now you know I have a hate/hate relationship with AOL, but I've had it for over 10 years, and I have all kinds of things saved on it.
And I fear change.
Plus TLPWSFB (The League of People with Sh*t for Brains) provides so much snark fodder.
The latest has to do with the comments sections on their "news" reader. Forget reading the article---just skip straight to the comments. Almost every single one is a freakfest of extraordinary proportions.
It doesn't matter what the article is about----say, Beyonce's bodacious booty, how to filet and grill your own road kill, ways to get 10 more miles a gallon in your car, or even the latest medical miracle----it ALWAYS devolves into comments like these:
The self-righteous blaming the world's ills on the godless hordes
10 ads for Colon Cleanse
How the U.S. is going to hell in a handbasket because we have a (insert various racial slurs) man in the White House.
I can't figure it out.
Is it the same 10 commenters---bigoted christers with incredibly clean buttholes who spend their days commenting on EVERY SINGLE FREAKING ARTICLE---or are all the futjobs just attracted to AOHell?
The funniest, maybe saddest, but certainly the snarkiest part of it is the content of the comments.
For example (and YES! this is real!):
"The solidity of family is all but about gone. Pretty soon humans will be procrastinating like apes each jumping from one sex partner to thenext having children whenever and whomever . It's really sad. My own son is having a baby with a gal who has two other boys with two different fathers. Hollywood seems to be everyone jumping in bed with homever they co-star with, married or not, so when kids have roll models like this, is it any surprise?"
"Roll" models? Like the Pillsbury Dough Boy, perhaps?
And how exactly does one "procrastinate" like an ape?
