I may have stepped over the line here.
I just read that today is Blog Action Day
and thousands of bloggers around the world are coming together to do…stuff. I don’t know the details because I got kinda bored and started downloading p0rn. Did you know that there are entire sites devoted to amputee fetishes? And even weirder, most of the pictures don’t even have real amputees, and the fully-limbed models are clearly
photo-shopped by horrifically untalented people. Like, here’s a hint: Maybe if you’re going photo-shop an amputated stump onto someone maybe it should be someone who isn’t already famous for having legs, like Angelina Jolie. Not that she’s famous for having legs but she’s famous and I think we’d all hear about it if she lost a limb, photo-shoppers. A willing-suspension-of-disbelief can only get you so far. Like maybe you could pick someone who’s been out of the lime-light for awhile, like Tara Reid or Barbara Bush. I mean, I’m
not personally into the whole amputee thing but that doesn’t mean the sick freaks who do don’t have the right to quality amputee p0rn. It’s called compassion
. I have it.
Okay, I just went to the Blog Action Day site and apparently your post is supposed to be about poverty and not about the importance of quality amputee photo-shopping, which seems a little closed-minded for an organization that’s supposed to be about helping people. But fine, here’s a video about water buffaloes that is awesome and is full of poverty and made me cry and has very little to do with amputees. And by “very little” I mean “pretty much not at all”. Unless maybe the camera man is an amputee. Which is entirely possible because those people can do anything.
PS. I just saw that the Blog Action Day website is highighting some of the best posts out there. I will be shocked if this one doesn’t make the cut ask them to remove all references to their organization from my blog.
