Why do I bother with this bullshit

Because I:

1 - am dumb
2 - am not cool enough to jump on the bandwagon and disconnect from any critical thinking when NOT thinking better supports my pet cause
3 - have ready 1984 too many times.
4 - am old
5 - don't have cool punk rock hair to go with my hot-topic "Fuck you mom and dad!" buttons.
6 - hold out hope for things that are hopeless.
7 - like pointlessly pissing myself off
8 - wish that just once a community dedicated something that *isn't* horrific would be nearly as dedicated as the communities that are ALL ABOUT the horrific shit.
9 - like making numbered lists about how fucking annoyed and cynical I am
10 - Have always been around alcoholics but have never had the drive to do it myself and I think that pushing myself into yet another pointless argument with people who are never going to get my point of view on a certain topic will be just the thing I need to start drinking in the afternoons.

Or none of that.

Dumb protesting is worse than none.

or..."reasons why I married that gal"
That was a pretty amazing string of knee-jerk zero-thought this-is-how-I'm-suppoed-to-react bullshit there. Your original point was fine, but your follow-up was even better. Shame they were wasted on people who won't / don't care to get it. People are so about maintaining their little contrived identities, making sure they appear the way they want people to perceive them... including that favorite of the late 90's / early 00's, "The Individual".

Bah.

Dog vomit.

Re: dog vomit
I wonder how they'd respond to a photo of that? Hey, without any context, it has just as much meaning...

I really, really, really shouldn't have followed that link. Why do I let myself pretend I still have something resembling "faith in humanity" or some sort of similarly well intentioned (but poorly thought out) delusion?

Exactly why I describe myself (if asked, which I usually hope I'm not) as an optimistic realist. I WANT to believe that people aren't just oblivious self-absorbed pieces of shit, but I've seen enough that I refuse to kid myself or not call things as I see them. I may sound like a misanthrope most of the time, but it's never without a reason.

Shame too, 'cos man... I'm all about the love.

clearly, i'm sort of corporate autonamon, cause i find that macdonald's chick oddly alluring. kinda sexy, even though, in general, clowns freak me out.

and i think her pictures are fucking hilarious.

See, I saw her pictures and I loved immediately. I think it's becuase I realize that anything to take corporate culture out of its corporate controls context is *good*.
"oh she must be BRAINWASHED" unlike the rest of those people who clearly aren't becuase, well just LOOK! They all agree that they aren't!

guh.

Miss McDonald is happy making. And I was *never* a McDonalds kind of person.

Shit, when I saw the picture I just thought: Miss McDonalds + Cow Pope = a lovely steel-cage deathmatch!

"I posted this picture to show how much the McD Co can effect someone."

However he/she didn't say this in the post, so any number of conclusions could have been reached. I for one was wondering why the clown was relegated to patio furniture.

I'm tempted to go with 9...

Frankly, that's the kind of picture that shouldn't be wasted on those people. It should go to free_assoc_tag.

And when I scrolled past it on the friends list the first time that's exactly where I thought it was.
