Anyway, I've got things on my mind, people. I love the internet. I love my blog, and I love reading other people's blogs; I love how easy it is to keep in touch with people through the likes of Facebook; I love internet shopping; I love Tumblr, and most of all, I love how many funny/cool/interesting websites are on the internet. However, I do not love internet phases (or memes) that are either taken too far, or that think they're funny when they are painfully unfunny.
One of the biggest culprits currently making the rounds is "That awkward moment when..." followed by something which is supposed to be a funny awkward moment. If you don't know what I'm talking about, I seriously envy you. This 'phenomenon' has its own website, but I simply don't understand the popularity. Here's some examples, hand-picked by me from the website:
- That awkward moment when the parents of the children you’re babysitting come home and find you sleeping on the couch.
- That awkward moment when you slip while reading a “floor slippery when wet” sign.
- That awkward moment when you realize that Waldo is not the world champion at hide and seek.
- That awkward moment when you sit on the remote and think a ghost turned on the TV.
- That awkward moment when your chair makes a farting noise and no one believes it was the chair, so you try to do it again but you can’t make the sound.
Another one is I think mainly Facebook orientated where they have all those groups you can 'like'. I think it's quietened down a bit now but it was everywhere for a while. I'm talking about the "Lol jk" jokes fad. For all you non-text speakers, here is the Urban Dictionary definition -
LOL, JK - The 'textual communication' version of "Laughing Out Loud, Just Kidding".
- I'd take a bullet for you...LOL jk that would hurt.
- I'm studying for exams...LOL jk I'm on Facebook.
- It's not you, it's me...LOL jk, it's you.
