Several times, I’ve detailed why slacktivism doesn’t really do anything to help the people it’s supposed to.
Once again, Facebook is deluged by a series of nonsensical posts that are supposed to increase awareness of breast cancer. This year’s game is even more ridiculous than those in the past.
If you haven’t seen it, and you probably have without knowing it, the “game” is to post one of 14 statuses. When someone likes it or comments on the status, you send them a message telling them that they are now part of the game! How fun!
Here are the statuses.
With shows starting to get their episode orders cut (looking at you, Dads), I thought it would be a good time to again pitch some shows.
Proctor Who: A dapper man travels throughout time and space stopping people from cheating on tests.
Nude Girl: A quirky young woman goes WAY too far to try to get her male roommates to like her.
Shaved by the Bell: A competition reality show in which teams race to shave their partner using a straight razor before time, or their partner’s blood, runs out.
The Bitches of Eastwick: A Real Housewives spinoff
You’ve Got Male: A hidden camera show in which couples are originally told they are having a daughter, then “surprised” in the delivery room.
Group Interview with the Vampire: A very old, yet well-preserved gentleman has to search for a retail job due to his family’s estate being lost in an economic downturn.
Juan Dies at the End: A Spanish language reality show in which a group of young men spoil movies to people waiting in line to see them.
