News, but not the serious kind
Do you have a flare for stupidity?
Blog Guy, me and others like me are being discriminated against. We’re dumbasses, and we don’t think there are enough ways for us to express ourselves these days.
I have to disagree there, ace. From where I sit, opportunities for dumbasses have never been greater.
Really? Like name some!
Well, look at this top photo, from a soccer match that had to be abandoned two days ago after “supporters” of one team threw flares at fans from the other team.
That’s great! What’s the world coming to if a dumbass can’t throw burning flares at people?
I knew you’d like it. Maybe you should join “Masked and Tattooed Flare-Throwing Soccer Fans.” I think they have a Website.
But that’s just one example, Blog Guy. I’m not gonna jump on the first dumbass bandwagon that comes along.
There’s much more. Have you seen photos of the dumbasses in Belgrade over the weekend who attacked a gay rights parade? They rioted, injured 110 police, looted, attacked buildings…
Now THAT sounds interesting! Who do I call?
Uh, let’s see, their letterhead says, “Halfwit Looters Against Gay Rights.” Oh, and it says here, “We welcome dumbasses!”
I appreciate the help, Blog Guy, but it turns out Belgrade is in some other country, and I’m too stupid to get a passport. Is there anything a dumbass can do locally?
That depends. How would you feel about protesting at funerals while loved ones are saying good-bye to brave U.S. soldiers who died in Iraq and Afghanistan?
Is it difficult work? Remember, I AM a dumbass.
No, you just carry a sign saying, “THANK GOD FOR DEAD SOLDIERS.”
Woo-hoo! I’m there!
