How the World will End

Some say the world will end in fire, some say it will end in ice, or so says Robert Frost. Me, I think the world will end when it simply implodes under the weight of the stupidity of its inhabitants. Now I'm not one to judge, we all have our flaws after all, but some people just sail on past 'normal flaws/imperfections', breeze on through 'weird but understandable' right into crazy town without so much as a nod at rational thought. For instance:

1) Cullenism

So apparently this is actually a thing, or at least it was when it was still 'cool' to obsess about Twilight. Alas (or do I mean thankfully?) the world of Pop Culture obsessions is a fickle place and the darling of yesterday can very easily be swept aside by the darlings of today (not that the 'darlings' of today are any better. Fifty Shades of awful anyone?)

Edward Cullen

So what is Cullenism? Quite simply it is the belief that the Twilight vampires are real, the author is some sort of prophet and heaven involves eternity with Edward.

There was not a trace of sarcasm in that last sentence by the way. It's the actual teachings of the Church of Twilight or TwiChurch. Can someone kill me now?

Anne Rice knew how to get vampires right *swoons*

2) Preteen Fashions

I've already said my piece on the prevalence of nudity and sexuality in Pop Culture these days so I won't rehash all that again. Sexuality and being proud of your body is all well and good and no one can tell you how to dress.

If you're an adult that is.

The issue arises when parents insist on dressing their kids (or allowing them to dress) in 'sexy' clothing. Dear parents, if you don't understand why it's problematic to let your 12 year old daughter dress like this for Halloween:

Then you need to seriously rethink your priorities.

3) Toddlers and Tiaras

Honey Boo Boo. Enough said.

4) Toys are Still For Kids Right?

I don't know who out there green lights the following toys or who in their right mind buys them for their kids but just the fact that they exist makes me lose faith in humanity >.

That's it, I'm moving to Mars. Anyone want to join me?

  1. I say the parents out there who engage in numbers 2-4 should be forced to give back their children immediately before they cause the complete downfall of civilization.

  2. All that shit is unacceptable. Every bit of it. Have you seen the doll that shits charms? My son wants one. What if I got him one? I’m certain that it would do nothing but put him on a certain path to TwiChurch.

  3. Have long wanted to move elsewhere, yet everywhere seems terrible for much of the reasons you’ve cited. But, if Mars is it up definitely join!

    On a more serious note, I’m often perplexed at what to do with Baby Boy as he ages and the world becomes an actual place to him. Right now, I’m glad he’s not a girl, yet I worry about the girl we may well have one day. It’s a sad sad world we live in, if you ask me.

  4. I knew I was going to hit like on this post the moment I saw the first image, then I read what came next and I laughed, out loud. I did. I admit to cringing just a bit as well, so many questionable items and ideas exist on this planet πŸ˜‰ My thanks, once again, for bringing me a bit of silly, Sally joy!
