This isn’t lame. This is just mean. Some girl wants to see her dad because she missed him while he was in jail (who knows what for). And you expect us to find this funny? Are we supposed to stop loving our parents because they go to jail? This site is normally quite funny, but this is grasping at straws.
I worry that this site is a format for the more privileged to make fun of the less privileged. Is it lame or cultural? In this case, was this man persecuted due to race or economic status? IMO it is a slippery slope between laughing at foibles and mocking non-dominant cultural realities.
I have cringed in the past to see people mocked due to Ebonics’ sentence structure and spelling.
I don’t think the site is making fun of other cultures and races, I think they’re mocking horrific grammar and spelling mistakes. Yes, it is sad that someone’s father was in jail and she has no doubt been missing him, but you don’t post stuff like that on FACEBOOK.When a family member has been incarcerated, people usually try to keep it under wraps and not tell every single person they’re acquainted with via a social networking site. While this isn’t so much funny in a “haha, look at that stupid girl” kind of way, it’s more pathetic in an “OMG, why would someone put that on facebook and make it their status for everyone to see” kind of way.
It doesn’t make the reader laugh out loud and slap their knee, but they’ll more likely do a double take and think “WTF!?”
Alan Garner: [while picking up Phil at the school where he works] Did you have to park so close?
Doug Billings: Yeah, what’s wrong?
Alan Garner: I shouldn’t be here.
Doug Billings: Why is that, Alan?
Alan Garner: I’m not supposed to be within two hundred feet of a school… or a Chuck E. Cheese.
“JASON’S MONSTER FAIL” UPDATE: Jason is now threatening to sue Sabrina for slander unless she removes the post; Jason’s high school boyfriend pulls a Chris Crocker moment; Sabrina posts her last Lamebook post ever, then immediately rescinds it. Tune in for more!
I agree with Julie, this site mocks people warped sense of what is appropriate to post in a very public forum. Facebook isn’t for close friends, people add everyone! Friends siblings, friends of friends, workmates, people they used to go to school with, people they only met once!
I just caught up on the whole Jason saga. I’m not even gonna post my comment on it since I don’t want start anything on a different topic. I will say that every one that made fun of him about his legal action quote must feel silly now. Looks like his threat actually carried some weight since they deleted the post.
On topic though, I don’t see anything lame about this. There is no telling how old this person is and if her dad has a revolving door at the jail, it may be just a part of her life and not realize that people would have issue with her talking about it.
@sarcasticmeow Basically he was included in some private message sent out to lots of people, detailing a meet-up later that night. Jason then replied to the sender saying about how when she went out could she not mention this girl Sabrina (who he cheated on his girlfriend with), going into detail why he didn’t want a relationship with her.
In his haste he ‘replied to all’ instead of just the sender.
@facebook, links like that only send you to the facebook home page. Go to Settings, then Account Settings and under “User name” create some name, for instance doosh.bagg . Then you’ll be able to make links like http://www.facebook.com/doosh.bagg and ppl can find the page, because a search for J Doosh Bagg (copied and pasted) gives nothing. Or rather 14 Doosh Bagg
@sarcasticmeow The thing that made the thread epic was that Jason started replying, and in the most insane manner. He wrote long, ranting, rather disgusting posts in all caps that showed that he is a misogynistic psycho
Lol… incredible that you’re still talking about “the dooshbag”. The original entry and the whole discussion is still completely available in Google’s cache. That’s the magic of the Internet – it never forgets anything.
for the people who want to know about jason’s monster fail:
you guys can google “jason’s monster fail” & then click the “cache” when the lamebook.com posting pops up and bam! it’s there.
& jason is an idiot for thinking google cache would completely erase his stupidity.
doosh bagg, I’m trying to friend you, but those links posted above go nowhere. has something happened on facebook too, to prevent jason’s monster fail epidemic from spreading? it’s too late for that, as others have said, google cache and screen grabs exist. but i’d like to join the group
Think about it people, she probably misses her dad, I would too. I don’t have a dad tho. he went to jail cause he wuz caught sellin heroin, there are a lot of crimes worse than that. even if he was a killer, he’s her dad, so she probably would miss him, why is this even on here?
A lot of the lamebook stuff brings teh lulz, but this one doesn’t.
I don’t think there’s anything lame about a kid missing her dad, and the idea that his family should be trying to hide the fact he’s been in jail says more about the people who actually believe that than about the family. Then again, I guess if you have never made a mistake in your life, it must be easier to sit in judgement over people who have…
