You know why this is funny? It’s funny because the self-righteous ‘kids’ who grew up bathing in mud and not quite catching dysentery on the left are presumably now the adults who are now glued to their smartphones; you know, the ones who the kids copy. I won’t deny that I need to look up a little bit more, but at least I’m prepared to admit it, rather than going all holier-than-thou.
(Curiously, my children were doing both these things yesterday, within the space of an hour. Presumably we’re getting parenting half right.)
This piece of pointless nostalgia has been doing the rounds on Facebook. It had so many errors in it I have had to produce an annotated version.
Well, I’m not re-posting it, at least not without making pointed remarks about how it’s clickbait for a Mafia game Facebook page. Because I’m obviously a heartless bastard, and probably a paedophile to boot.
It’s Time to Talk Day. This means sitting down for five minutes with someone else to speak with them about mental health issues – whether you yourself are affected, are close to someone who is, or would just like to know more.
Alternatively, if you wanted, you could churn out a misguided, borderline offensive piece of rubbish like the one I found on Facebook this morning.
Remember, kids: stay MENTALLY STRONG. Then you too can produce idiotic and patronising platitudes like this one.
Today’s photo-of-a-sick-but-photogenic-child – whose image has been used (probably without permission) to propagate revenue-generating clickbait disguised as emotional blackmail and wrapped up in false theology – comes courtesy of one of those inspiring websites.
Liftbump? Consider yourselves named and shamed.
Of course, if your mother’s a binge-drinking crack whore, then we have a problem.
