Say No to Internet Drama

by - June 11, 2010

Have you ever gotten into an internet fight? You know, like on Facebook or Myspace or even Twitter?

If you have, you know you're an idiot right?

Were you expecting a just kidding after that statement? Well, you're not getting one. Fighting over the internet is one of the stupidest things you could waste time over. It's like winning a race in the Special Olympics: in the end, you're still retarded (yes, I know I'm probably going to Hell for that).

It's one thing to verbally or physically fight with someone, but to take it to the internet where anyone can see it is just a cry for attention. Let's face it. You want people to read your argument. You need them to be on your side. Well I hate to break it to you, but your cleverly-worded comebacks do not impress anyone. In fact, most people think your internet drama is stupid.

And we all know this to be true, but that doesn't stop some of us from airing our dirty laundry so to speak on the walls of Facebook, does it?

You may wonder what the point of this is. No, I did not just decide to rant about my distaste for internet drama. Something I found at work prompted me to dust off my soap box.

Have you ever watched the show Jersey Shore? If you haven't you're not missing much, but if you have then you know Snooki.

That's her at the CMAs earlier this week. Anyway, in the premier for the next season of JS, Snooki complains that she doesn't use tanning beds anymore because "Obama put a 10-percent tax on tanning."

She goes on to say: McCain would never put a 10-percent tax on tanning, because he's pale and he would probably want a tan.

Somehow this whole deal makes it onto Twitter, where McCain replied to her comment.

Did anyone know John McCain knew how to use Twitter?! Crazy.

Anyway, McCain told Snooki, "u r right, I would never tax your tanning bed! Pres Obama's tax/spend policy is quite The Situation. but I do rec wearing sunscreen!"

To which Snooki replied, "Haha yes!!"

 McCain, by the way, is a skin cancer survivor. And honestly, I'm not 100-percent sure I believe the Arizona senator is actually the person updating that Twitter account. Surely he would use correct spelling and punctuation, not to mention capitalize words that start a sentence.

Stuff like that is so stupid. Whether it's really Sen. McCain or someone pretending to be him, bashing the president through your Twitter account is just childish.**

**This is in no way a reflection of my political views. Whether I voted for our current President or McCain has absolutely no bearing on the comments made in this post. If the situation were reversed, my views on internet bashing would remain the same as expressed herein.
