I probably shouldn't admit this, as it will reveal me to be part of what is being so ably satirized here, but I came close MORE THAN ONCE to trying to click "like" on a couple of those comments. Mainly the ones where people were calling Munchkin Chip and Munchkin Jessica on their bullshit.
And now I will admit that the whole reason I did this was because I heard "Ding Dong The Witch is Dead" last week and immediately thought, "You know, if that were real and on Facebook, some jackoff would post that 'I mourn the loss...' quote even though it's the fucking wicked witch!!!" Some folks don't know how to celebrate the death of a truly evil figure, for goodness sake.
And they probably watch the whole celebration scene in THE WIZARD OF OZ and go "Oh, that's just terrible. That's so tasteless. The Mayor of Munchkin City should be imprisoned for war crimes."
"Instead of dropping houses on them and melting them with water, perhaps we should try to understand the culture of the wicked witch."
Hilarious! And true.No, really, I feel I've lived through various incarnations of this thread - in terms of content and topic (sometimes both).
Thanks, Joel. I think we've all seen enough of these types of threads on Facebook. I feel like I come across one every other day.
Ha, well I wasn't thinking Facebook...
