Since 2011 is coming to a close, I thought it important to remind everyone of the idiotic fads, trends and social vomiting that happened in real life and on the inter-webs.
If you’ve never heard of these, you’ll just have to Google them and consider yourself lucky. Enjoy.
1. PLANKING, OWLING and the more rare form CONING
I for one am really glad to see all of these photo fads go away. I don’t know who started these but I suspect that a person with an overly large sense of self worth, combined with high amounts of alcohol and a camera were involved. Good riddance. Can’t we just get back to taking drunk pictures in bars like we did in 2010?
2. These Facebook trends.
So imagine a world where an attention deprived middle school girl designs a “Breast Cancer Awarness Meme.” How about just a status update with a reminder, “If you haven’t gotten a mammogram maybe its time to start thinking about it.” Or even a link to a breast cancer donation site? I’m not sure how you feel, but common sense feels really good.
Why don’t you hate AIDS!? Why won’t you copy and repost this status!? Don’t you hate bad things!? Copy and Post if you believe in Miracles! Copy and Post if you’re afraid of Ghosts! Copy and Post if you don’t want to get Aids! If you don’t Copy and Post it means you like Nazis, cooties and Aids.
3. THE END OF THE WORLD!
Remember this!? Why the media and the world started giving these people air time is beyond me. I know this isn’t the first nor the last group to say that the world is going to end, so lets keep that in mind the next time we hear doomsday stuff and worry more about aliens and Russian nukes OK!?
4. THIS GUY
Or using the phrase “Winning.” Whenever I play competitively in sports or video games I’ll yell out, “HEY! I’M Winning!” And instantly remember Charlie Sheen. I feel so dirty now. I feel sad that my only pre-victory phrase has been taken from me.
Ladies, you aren’t birds and these feathers won’t make you fly. If you want to fly you can either do drugs, think happy thoughts or fly a plane. Let the fishing lures stay in fishing.
6. Runners up, or other things I want to go away.
- Kardashian anything.
- skinny jeans (only on dudes).
- Jersey Shore.
- Putting Hash tags on Facebook.
- The sheer number of Republican debates this year.
- Jeggings and pajama jeans.
Justin Bieber, I took pity on you because a crazy fan accused you of impregnating her, watch yourself.
