@yaya: It’s okay to express your opinion, so long as you know that you’re wrong.
Just kidding. It’s possible that was the intent, I dunno. Also, I don’t discount the possibility that I would have laughed at a different, funnier, joke about the same topic. Maybe the problem is that the joke is about offensive things, but that the more offensive the subject matter, the funnier the joke will have to be to overcome that. Or something. Anyway, the joke sucked.
Also, Kevin, the Kanye thing is getting almost as tired as the Frodo thing.
@SensibleMadness Thank you for understanding that, alas, I am in one of those silly moods today. Sometimes you have to be in the right frame of silly to enjoy such things. Sort of like certain movies only make sense and amuse when stoned (Monty Python’s HOLY GRAIL for instance.)
Why would you ask what happened in Haiti? I mean, you have to be online to access FB so why not mosey on over to google and type in Haiti?! I can’t wait for “acting stupid” to leave the average young girls arsenal of “charming traits”.
Listen people, this is Najia. I’m extremely disappointed in Lamebook. They editted my post. My orginal post was “whoever started this joke ‘did you hear about the new haitian boy band? it’s called new blocks on the kids’ should be shot.”
Thanks a lot, Lamebook for making me look like a bad person.
I was just going to comment on how Najia’s post makes no sense. The use of proper punctuation and capitalization for “It’s” kind of implies that Najia would have begun the statement with capitalization, ended the second sentence with a period, and not left a random quotation mark at the end. The hanging quotation mark, as well as the lack of capitalization in “do” are consistent with an unedited copy/paste of a quote taken out of context. Thus, this is either a quote that Najia copy/pasted from some source, or part of a sentence that Najia posted about the quote that was mutilated for lamebook purposes. Given the comment from najia89 above, I am inclined to believe the latter scenario, and am also quite disappointed in whatever imbecile is responsible for this.
@i am here
wow i’m just amazed at how pathetic your life is! criziting others in order to make youself feel good haha what a jerk. you wasted your time “tutoring” me what i knew, idiot. this is not eng101 or a place to criticize others.
Come on people. You’ve never heard of New Blocks on the Kids? They’ve been around for quite some time. All they did was release their latest greatest hits. Their last greatest hits, released in may of 2008, was a smash in China.
Huh? I just left a long post supporting your claim, and saying that even before you posted, I thought someone most likely edited your original status before putting it up here, and you come back and attack me for it? If I was criticizing anything, it was whoever put your edited status up there for doing a poor job of covering up the edit. How did you get criticizing you or “tutoring” you out of that?
Seriously. Try to defend someone random on the internets, and you get called a jerk by the very person you’re defending.
@59 – no shit. They were pretty screwed before, Haiti has been fucked since it achieved it’s independence from French rule and started ruling themselves, corruption and abysmal running of a country ensued. Not to sound racist, but that’s what history shows to happen when colonial rule is relinquished in these places, there are many other colonial countries/island that simply do not want to remove the English/Dutch etc rule because they know the country will go to shit.
I am not advocating oppressive rule, but the benefits of having your big brother country legislate and control certain aspects are clearly visible, especially in terms of aid, social welfare, financial backing etc.
ben even though you are right about Haiti being screwed way before the disaster … the reasoning you use is far off. They are screwed just because of not having to be able to enjoy a natural evolution
The independence is not the problem , the colonial days and plundering of their natural resources combined with age long trauma and slavery is the problem. Oh and i almost forgot the forcing of western type society/government/religion …on native inhabitants.
Well lets just say that despite this been a disaster of epic proportions, it kicked the western world up the arse and much needed money is flowing in, hopefully from the dust a better city will arise that can cater for it’s inhabitants far better than before.
Question: if this quake had happened in, for example, Dharavi, do you think as much aid would be pledged and the Indian government would even assist as much? It would be like a blessing in disguise for the government who could setup a settlement for these people out of site
najia… oh, man, that sucks. Well, it doesn’t suck that you hate the joke, that’s awesome. It sucks that you’re the second person this week to come on Lamebook and reveal that your status was edited from something awful to make it look lame.
Starting to wonder if anything on this site is real…
