I’m going to say it’s a mixture of both. The pile of popcorn instead of cocaine? Sort of funny. Hearing children in elementary school call each other “sons of bees” and “motherfudgers”? Weird. Seeing them act out a scene full of murder and machine guns? It’s just wrong.

Way back in the day before Twitter grabbed the nation by its’ throat and made us all take notice, I blogged about how inane the website seemed. I still stand by my opinion. I think Twitter has become even more obnoxious, illustrated here by this clip from The Soup.

I do not normally endorse Miley Cyrus, Hannah Montana or any such programming relating to the two, but the Hoedown Throwdown, from Hannah Montana the Movie is just too infectious to ignore.

I consider myself to be pretty web-savvy, but there’s one part of the Internet I just don’t get: Twitter. I know a lot of people who are on it, and I do check their Twitter profiles occasionally, but I still don’t see the point. Twitter’s website describes their service as such:
Twitter is a service for friends, family, and co–workers to communicate and stay connected through the exchange of quick, frequent answers to one simple question: What are you doing?
Isn’t that what emails, IMs, texts and phone calls are for? Why do we need this website, which is basically a glorified Facebook status, to tell people what we’re doing? And honestly, I really don’t need a minute-by-minute update of your life. If I care that much, I’ll text you or, call me crazy, I’ll actually talk to you in person!
Who knows…maybe I’m just out of touch, but I don’t think I’ll be signing up for Twitter any time soon.

My life is seemingly chock full of passive aggressive bahavior, both on my part and others, which is probably why I love passiveagressivenotes.com so much. From workplace reminders to angry notes from roommates, this website always makes me laugh and appreciate just how passive aggressive people in this world are.
