Not too long ago my friend Kara blogged about a blog that she thought was funny. So I went to it. I read it and it DISGUSTED me. It was the most pathetic attempt at humor I had ever seen.
I am all for sarcasm and occasionally making fun of people. But there is a point where it makes me angry, sad, and upset. I have never understood how people could become violently angry, but this blog makes me feel so angry. Not to be violent but I wish I could hack into it and delete it.
Ugh, I know that's a bad thought, but it just raises my blood flow.
Anyway, I hadn't gone to this blog because it makes me so mad. But I made the mistake of noticing it on Jen's Baby Makin' Blog and clicked the link.
I am again irate.
I'll give you a little more detail. It's a fake blog making fun of women who are mormon and I guess typical mormon. Think Single's Ward-type movies only more conceited. That's what it is. I find it completely conceited to make fun of people to such extreme. It says, "I am better than you".
I hate those mormon movies. They drive me nuts. It's says, "we're tools and cliches. we don't think for ourselves".
Granted, I know there are church members out there like this. Who walk around and think, "If I do these nice things, perhaps I will be relief society president someday". BARF! Who thinks that! Say that and be done with it. Or try to let them see the fallacy of such a statement.
But I find it disgusting to mock them, and the response and attention others give them. I just feel like they're attacking an innocent, harmless animal.
Okay, here's what really chaps my hid; they have sponsors and advertising for this blog. So there's an audience, and now there's a profit. They've sold out.
I don't know why this bothers me so much. I am never going to be president of anything-church or otherwise. I do not live in Utah, I don't fit the profile of the people being made fun of, but it bothers me.
I'm sorry. Normally Russ and I write cute, quippy things. I leave my real thoughts to secret blogs, gaggle gatherings, and for Russ. But I am just really pissed off.
How pathetic are we? We spend time making faking blogs about sincere people, profit from them when we could spend our time reading a book, helping someone in need, or let's make it practical- pay attention to your kids! Ugh, I so despise people that are so.... LAZY. Okay, I better stop. But I will be grumbling until my 3 mile run tomorrow.
