"I'm not a role model... Just because I dunk a basketball doesn't mean I should raise your kids." - Charles Barkley
When Sir Charles said that, it caused quite a stir. I know because I'm old enough to have seen it firsthand. But the issue of being a role model... or, more specifically a mindless follower... needs to be addressed in this great Nation of ours, and that right quick. Case in point -- Kim K's recent "Hey everyone I'm naked - AGAIN!" social media post. An article in AskMen.com has listed several "celebrities" who have now recreated her "Nudie." They include such shining stars of class as: Kylie Jenner, Courtney Stodden, and the train wreck that is GloZell. What. The. Fuck?
"The difference between stupidity and genius is that genius has its limits." - Albert Einstein
Just about once a day I come across a post while I'm cruising Twitter or Instagram (which you can follow @TfullySarcastic and @TastefullySarcastic respectfully) that says something to the effect of," In a World of Kim Kardashians Be a Princess Diana." But when E! has mortgaged the farm on ALL things Kar-trashian and millions of mindless lemmings shell out hard-earned greenbacks for their video games, perfume, sex toys, and clothing - she and her family remain bonafide millionaires. And you know what? I can't fault them for that. They're cashing in on the STUPIDITY of others! See - Forrest Gump nailed it - Stupid IS as Stupid DOES!
"I think a role model is a mentor - someone you see on a daily basis, and you learn from them." - Denzel Washington
So, dear friends, ask yourselves what have we learned from today's "Social-Celebs?" How to take a dick on home video? Check. How to flaunt excess riches? Yep. How to spew idiotic beliefs and statements to the World? Oh yeah. There's your modern-day role model folks. And it is downright, fucking pitiful. There are great voices - both male and female - out there worth following. But in the malaise of shit flowing freely on the Word Wide Interwebs, those wonderful voices are falling on deaf ears. And, until that changes, Nude Selfies and their recreations will sadly be the way of things. - MO
