For those of you familiar, you may be interested to know that I got well over 500 hits on that post in the 6 days since I've posted it. One of the major referring URLs was http://912communique.ning.com/page/vent-34. I went there, intending to see what context it was posted in and what kind of feedback it was getting (more like, to see if more fucktards believed it was a real story). Turns out, this is a private forum... (oo_OoOo!) So I applied, with a fake name of course, one that's not the one that shows up when I send emails, and even through the super secure acceptance process where I had to check a box that said I agree to 912 principles (LMFAO!) and reply to an email, I was accepted.
Now, I wish I had all the comments for you, but you'll see why I don't. What I do have is my response to these fucktards:
Are you retarded? No wonder this country is in such horrible shape... People can't even discern satire from real new. Jesus H.
"bloody insane asylum this country has become!" - I was thinking more like a home for retarded people, but close enough.
the use of irony, sarcasm, ridicule, or the like, in exposing, denouncing, or deriding vice, folly, etc.
a literary composition, in verse or prose, in which human folly and vice are held up to scorn, derision, or ridicule.
a literary genre comprising such compositions.
And the response I got to that:
justfolk replied to your comment on Vent 3.4 - 912 Communique\' / 912 Communique' - Better Communication for 912ers:
Don't quit your day job.... a satirist you aren't
Jerk wad seems to fit tho....LOL
Ooooo! Jerk wad I am! That's a new one for me. I have to admit, I am a bit Disappoint "justfolk", I have been called so much worse and I was hoping to get something a little more colorful.
Unfortunately, the original comment with the link to my blog and all of the replies have been deleted, so I could not point out that until I made my comment, everyone of those asshats thought my story was real, so evidently I didn't fail entirely.
Now, your mission, should you choose to accept it, my fellow cohorts in World Domination, is to join this site and post your own satirical story about the TSA and see how many stupid Beck-heads fall for it.
