well, check THIS out, m'friends!
The hot new malady du jour is Blogger Depression! Isn't that awesome? It even sounds like a real condition like Athlete's Foot or Diesel Penis (a very real condition of loss-of-feeling in the ol' family jewels caused by the vibration of a certain area, usually suffered by long-distance drivers) but what it deals with is the fact that the "OMFG!!!11 i luv teh bl0gging!!1" crowd often suffer sudden flashes of realism, and find that in between writing meaningless pish all the live long day, they are radically insignificant. So there's now a pamphlet to help repair their fractured egos.
Firstly; OK, OK... I know it's a fake. But swearing language aside, it looks pretty genuine and it's "teh funnay".
Secondly; why in the world do we want to stop these people from killing themselves?
Thirdly; was it me, or did anyone else read the URL as "The Onanist"? (Dorothy Parker once said she used to have a pet parakeet called Onan. She got rid of him because he kept dropping his seed on the floor. Cue rimshot.)
Have a read of it, it's pretty funny. Stick it in any public library or high school and I bet it would be taken seriously. Well if you'll excuse me, I have to cut the post short. I need a Wellbutrin.
