#76 Overly Serious Blog Readers

Species Name:  TakeaXanaxicus Andchillthefuckoutius

The internet is a strange place isn’t it?  At any given hour, there are people searching god knows what on the interwebs.  I don’t know about you guys, but I take everything I read on the internet with not just a grain of salt, but an entire salt lick.  Sure, there are reputable news sources where facts can be found, but the majority of the internet is filled with either nonsensical editorials (the site you’re reading this on right now) or inaccurate facts (wikipedia just so you know, is not the end all be all of factual information.)

This being said, I get a wide range of comments on this blog.  I get the people who enjoy a good chuckle, the people who successfully found a way to kill a few hours of their workday, and then I get those people who think I’m insane and should be committed to an institution before I actually kill one of my TTH subjects.  These ones make me laugh the hardest because they take this blog so seriously.  Anyone who is a frequent reader of TTH knows, it’s anything but serious.  Do I genuinely dislike most of the people/groups/things I post about?  Sure.  Do I wish any of them actual bodily harm/maiming/death by firing squad?  No.  I’m not Lucifer himself after all.  I simply think it’s funny to see how riled up people get about certain subjects and decided to create a satirical blog taking that to the next level.

Now, you’re all entitled to your opinion, that’s the beauty of the internet.  The other beautiful part of the internet however, is that I can also tell you that you’re WRONG.

In a world where the Overly Serious Blog Readers didn’t exist to get their cyber panties in a bunch:

  • Porn website memberships would dramatically decrease.
  • The percentage of people in the world with actual, functioning senses of humor would dramatically increase.
  • The rest of us wouldn’t miss them…at all.
  • The bandwidth that these people take up bit torrenting manga would be redistributed throughout the world.
  • The rest of the people in the world would find a more worthwhile use of their time.

All I’m saying to you Overly Serious Blog Readers out there is, please, read, comment, but the minute you make an assumption as to what I’m like in reality, take a step back and recognize that just like when you pretend to be a 14 year old girl in chat rooms, when you’re actually a 45 year old man, everything is not always as it seems on the world wide web.  But if you do decide to personally attack me for my clearly ridiculous opinions, be prepared to get it coming back your way.

And lay off those chat rooms, actually don’t, I look forward to seeing you on the next edition of “To Catch a Predator.”

To the rest of you…thank you for consistent loyalty to TTH.

But one has to have dreams right?



  1. SOOOOOOOOOOOO glad you finally thinned them! they’re putting a damper on all your witty and hilarious blogs!
