Hilarious? Hmmmm, Nope

thylane-loubry-blondeauPeople are always saying this is hilarious, that is hilarious: it’s beginning to really bother me.

Some things are funny, sure, but hilarious suggests such an over-the-top reaction to a thing that might, only might, tickle your funny bone it puts me off.

Plus, not to sound like a grouch here, but I don’t think you get to say “Oh, listen to this, it’s hilarious.”

I mean, the person himself has to decide what’s funny, no? Otherwise it’s just the hard sell. It’s like what advertisers, or the media, do with sex vis-à-vis young people:

They take it away from them, take away what is rightfully theirs to find out about, trick it up and try selling it back to them.

It makes me feel a mite queasy, you know?

  1. Unless I missed something further, I am going only by the view of this child. She IS a child and that pose is not hilarious. She’s being robbed of her childhood. By the time she’s 25, she will have experienced “everything” and will be bored. Very sad.

    1. I’m suprised that you would use that pic of a child. She doesn’t look like she finds it hilarious nor mildly amusing. I find it repulsive.
