… to mark the passing of satire as a thing we can do anymore. I don’t know exactly who’s to blame here, so I’ll just go with the obvious go-to culprit when things have been destroyed, millennials.
- Exhibit A from The Reductress, a satire site: “Vaccinations Made My Cat Autistic“
- Exhibit B from the Brooklyn Paper, a non-satirical news site: “Anti-vax movement prompts Brooklynites to withhold inoculations from their pets“
I’m not suggesting that avocados destroy one’s ability to correctly identify and poke fun at human folly, but I’m not not suggesting it. STOP SNAPCHATTING* AND GET YOUR DOGS SOME RABIES SHOTS AND BUY A DAMN HOUSE ALREADY, MILLENNIAL SCAPEGOATS**.
Seriously, though: society, we really need to get our shit together. We can start with group interventions for everyone in Brooklyn and San Francisco.
*Is Snapchat still A Thing? Hello, how are you, I am old.
**Maybe if you pool your money, you can buy one house for all y’all? It’d be hard to share the fridge, but it might get the Boomers off your backs for a couple weeks.
