Yeah, so, I’m sure you’ve read all about that gun-wielding guy who was holding hostages at the Discovery Channel headquarters, right?
“Among his demands: ‘Saving what’s left of the non-human wildlife by decreasing the human population’ and taking shows that encourage ‘the birth of anymore parasitic human infants” off the air.'”
I know the guy is crazy, but that sounds like a legitimate gripe to me. The commercials for “19 and Counting” and “Kate Plus 8” on TLC (which is owned by the Discovery Channel) make me want to take hostages, too.
Do you think this gunman’s actions were just a publicity stunt to get his own reality show? If so, it was a bad way to go about it, because he was shot and killed by police. He should have just tried popping out a bunch of kids. Oh wait …
So anyway, because I have a big mouth, and I think every little, stupid thought in my head is so important and must be shared, I went on Twitter and said this:
Discovery channel gunman wanted them to cancel shows that encourage “the birth of anymore parasitic human infants.” I think that’s reasonable.
A few minutes later, someone I don’t know tweeted back to me:
@TheSoniaShow your a complete idiot
Part of me felt like I shouldn’t respond. That’s the mature part of me. Unfortunately (or is it fortunately?), I’m 95 percent immature, so I responded.
You used the wrong “your.” It’s “you’re” … idiot. RT @Somedouche* @TheSoniaShow your a complete idiot
* Some Twitter names have been changed to protect the douchey.
I think the lesson here is if you are going to call someone an idiot, make sure you use the correct grammar. Oh, and waving around a gun and taking hostages is not a good idea.
