There are many dark places on the Internet, places where wide-eyed commenters blindly walk into ham-fisted traps set by full-time trolls.
There are many dark places on the Internet, places where wide-eyed commenters blindly walk into ham-fisted traps set by full-time trolls. These websites exist at the intersection of boredom, idiocy and gullibility, a place where any attempt at non-retarded interaction falls under the muddied boot of online stupidity.
Whether you’re reading the never-clever “LOL U FAGs” of YouTube comments, fake Yahoo! Answers or the more… uh… “urban” hashtag games on Twitter, a couple page scrolls will quickly remind you how many stupid, stupid people are out there just hanging out on the Internet, grinding the gears of the English language, masturbating to Farmville and posting THE DUMBEST COMMENTS EVER on the Casey Anthony Facebook page.
We’ve assembled a few screen shots for you, but I recommend you visit the page so you can read the individual mini-arguments developing in the comments sections of these wall posts. Witness misspelled death threats, clumsy poems, the grammar… oh, the wonderfully terrible grammar! What awaits you is a treasure trove of unintentional comedy, like watching the Special Olympics while you’re baked or having a conversation with any art school grad.
My personal faves are the posts in which people claim the moral high ground by threatening to murder the acquitted murderer — all in the name of God, of course.
Thank you, Internet. And God Bless America.
