quit it

Oh, dudes, there are some ignorant people out there.

And there are also people who need so, so much attention.

And then there are ignorant people who need a lot of attention. And they are the friggin worst, you guys. And you know what makes these people like five quadrillion times more problematic than they already are as their own friggin ignorant-ass attention-needing selves?

The friggin internet.

Twitter, specifically, is Ground Zero for stupid-ass ignorant mo-fos who won't shut the hell up. Followed closely by Facebook.

And oh lordy, how we enjoy railing against these demented bastards. Except by "we" I mean tons of people other than me. I'mma tell you about that in a sec.

Here's the deal. There are certain aggravating people, with aggravating-ass personalities, always spouting their ignorant-ass opinions to whoever will listen. I'm convinced a lot of these idiots don't even believe the stuff they're writing; they're just writing it to get a rise out of people. And it works! We give them the exact thing they want: attention.

I'm gonna draw a comparison for you.

Have you ever heard of or seen that TV show called Bait Car? Cops outfit the things with audio, video, and GPS trackers, then wait for some idiot to steal it so they can arrest him. Which is just about the stupidest thing I've ever heard of.

That show is hella popular among a certain crowd: ignorant-ass mofos who need a lot of attention. They watch it and familiarize themselves with what bait cars look like and then they go out and steal one and get arrested just so they can be on TV.

Here's another comparison: those idiot chicks who go on Maury Povich and line up five different dudes for DNA testing because any one of them could be the father of her child, and then it turns out none of them are the father because chica boinked like 17 other guys, too. Dudes. You can buy DNA kits at the drug store. Or frickin Amazon. These people just want to be on TV, even though it's for the completely wrong reason. They need the attention.

Here's what I'm getting at. These ignorant internet trolls, some of whom are verrry wealthy and famous, need to go bye-bye. But that will never happen if we keep giving them the attention they so urgently need. Why should we justify their ignorance with a response? We should not. The only way to win against stupidity is to shun the hell out of it. That's my opinion, anyway. I don't follow those idiots on Twitter, I certainly don't respond to them, I completely ignore any references to them on the Internet, and it makes me ragey when I see them mentioned on TV, particularly when they have no legitimate reason to be involved in certain discussions.

I have to be vague about this because I refuse to mention certain people's names or even hint at what they might be involved in. This blog alone gives those blockheads WAY more attention than they deserve, but I had to write it to tell people to please stop giving the imbeciles attention. You're just stoking the fire.

  1. You're talking about me, aren't you?

    I'm one of those people who gets sucked in. I hate-read comments on articles. I can't help it!

    That's why I loved this article so much:

    1. Ok I haven't even read the whole thing yet but "waaahmbulances of the apocalypse"! hahahaha... LOVE. I was talking about EVERYONE. Some people engage more than others but I think the attention-seekers are soaking it up.

    2. And bee-tee-dubs, I DID like the article (can't remember if you linked to it on FB?) about how this election is not a tragic event and how people need to pull their heads out of their asses. But I can't even hate-read those entries in the Jezebel article. Makes my tummy hurt.
