Woohoo, I too can make reference to a fad that was popular when we were children, and automatically have made the best joke ever! Here’s a joke about Transformers! It’s really witty and clever despite the series being incredibly famous and well known! Perhaps next I shall make reference to Pokémon, and you will all think me wonderfully nerdy, despite it being a very very popular series!
Translation: You are not the ‘best’ ANYTHING for making a shitty reference to a series most people know about. You backwards hipster fuck.
It’s more of a long-term thing, with everybody ever on Facebook making reference to shit like Pokémon and Transformers as if just referencing that shit is awesome in and of itself, ‘cos they’re ‘nerdy’ and ‘nostalgic’ despite being really popular and still around today.
It was more the ‘Thus becoming the greatest parents of all time’, like it’s some incredible joke instead of a shit one about eighty hundred people have made already.
Also this place is my outlet for my hatred for the human race.
bugjones, every time someone posts a status on FB, they are making a claim for some type of status. They want to look cool or funny or clever or sensitive. Frequently, they end up looking lame, but they put things in their status because they want to make a statement about the kind of person they are.
But to be fair, Hobo, I’m not sure the joke would have been much funnier if he were talking about something obscure, but I suppose if it were something obscure, then other people who knew about that thing would not have been overloaded with jokes about it, so maybe they’d be delighted to see someone mention it. I dunno.
