Today, my boss wrote a column about the local college sports basketball team and the Internet message boards. Now, not being an Internet-savvy guy (which he alludes to many times in his column) I decided, “Fuck it, I’m going to have fun with his headline.”
So tomorrow, in all the copies of the paper I work for and online, you will see this headline:
“OMG, Eagles trying, chilax :)” with a little box under it translating, saying “Translation: Oh my gosh, the Eagles are trying, so just chill and relax … smiley face.” I was going to put FTW, but not enough people in the department (two other than me today) knew what that meant, so I went without it.
Please congratulate me for I am now part of the problem of dumbing down our country. I’ll be just over here hanging myself from a very strong and sturdy bar.
