I'm going to pose some rhetorical questions in this blog, just as a warning. I don't want them answered. I will just take your silence as agreement. I know I'm in the minority of this issue, and that's ok.
Does anyone know how this whole "____ Fail" craze started? For example, the picture i this blog would be a "driving fail."
I don't know what this means. Of course, I get it. But when did accidents or, I'll indulge the phenomenon, "failures" start being dubbed "fails" ? I think the first time I heard this word, it was used in a sentence and the person barely provided enough context for me to understand.
"Hey, Tregg. Have you seen that dance fail video?"
No, I have not. And what the hell does that mean??!! I'm all for the latest trends and keeping up on lingo, and even shortening words to the brink of incomprehension. But I hate watching YouTube videos. And I hate that overnight a viral video sensation known as "fail blogs" and "fail videos" was born. Why is the American public supposed to know what this is? Who coined this term?
I don't get it, and I'm not jumping on this bandwagon.
Although, that table fail video of the fat girl singing atop a table and falling off was pretty funny.
What am I saying??!?!?!
