It’s just too easy to poke fun at certain things. And it has become rather fashionable to hate on things that the masses seem to love. Truth be told, it’s simply irresistible. Here are 8 popular things we love to hate.
No one cares if you hate the badly written, badly acted, vampire neutering trilogy because it’s all been said. Jokes about necrophilia? It’s been done. Jokes about Stewart’s monotone facial expressions? Heard them. Having one of your friends rant about how vampires went from lusty, homicidal, deviants into frigid, emotional, sissies is getting more annoying than when we were all force to listen to Edward v. Jacob debates. Society’s pop culture changes with age and even so-called “classics” can be forgotten. We’ve learned that like the horror of the Jerry Curl, dressing like a neon condom, and Courtney Love’s breasts: what goes up, must come down.
7. Justin Bieber
We get it. He looks like he’s twelve, sings rudimentary lyrics, and wouldn’t know what to do with all his groupies unless Usher was there directing him. What’s the point? How many artists are out there that don’t “deserve to be famous”? For every person who hates hearing some adolescent moan the word baby over and over again, there’s a dozen bidding for his hair on eBay. Anyone could be famous because there has got to be someone, SOMEWHERE, who thinks you’re the greatest thing since spherical bread – which wasn’t the best first draft, to be fair. We have to just embrace the noble tradition of ignoring what we don’t like, lest we all be mauled by thirteen year old girls and our buddies at the bar.
6. The Republican party
Bill Clinton is the best example of what happens when political jokes go too far. We mocked his frat boy life-style so he turned around and just embraced it. While it’s easier to make fun of a total stranger who happens to be under a goddamn spotlight, we’re just recycling the same jokes. Rick Perry giggles at his own mispronunciation just like every one of your friends, ever. Now he just carries himself as the “happy-go-lucky-relatable” candidate. So how is it funnier when we do it to him instead of one of our pals? Answer: it’s not. It’s just easier because the chances of us meeting him are slim to none and we’ll never have to deal with any consequence or have a prank war incite because of it. After all, if you’re going to mock someone then you should go big or go home. No one wants to hear jokes that we use under our breath when we think our room-mates can’t hear us, so stop it. ”
5. Jersey Shore
As tempting as it is to make fun of spray tanning gone wrong, there’s really no point. The show showcases our limbic system; specifically, what instant gratification looks like with access to credit cards, alcohol, and a television crew. But why shouldn’t we make fun of them if they’re broadcasting themselves and asking for it? Very simple, hypothetical questioner: ‘cause they want you to talk about them! People who are willing to do such ridiculous things for attention don’t care if it’s bad or good, and people who fake the persona for ratings on TV. do it for exactly that: ratings. Don’t mock them, just turn the screen off and let them be forced to drink alone in the dark screaming about how they used to be stars.
