This is soooo funny. So funny it hurts. Ok, so maybe I've been guilty of one or two of these. Ok, maybe you have too. The more you're guilty, the funnier it is.
To many, the Internet is a world full of promise.
To others, a ripe field ready to be harvested by douchebags.
Both are true.
I think the first douchebag was the knight in medieval times. You just know he clickity-clanked across the village in that dopey metal armor and thought he was so cool.
Oh look at me. I have armor!
And then he'd return to the castle and push the jester around with his joust. Jousting him in the ass, perhaps.
Anyways, here they are:
- Nobody Knows What They Actually Do. When you try to find out what a social media douchebag does, you're in for a dizzying deflection.
- They Actually Think They're Internet Celebrities.
- They Will Speak At Any Event.
- They Recommend Their Friends Who Are, Coincidentally, Also Douchebags.
- They Always Need To "Rate A Brand".
Come on, we're all friends here. (Or should that be "friends?") Fess up in the comments -- and give your own signs that you're talking to a social media douchebag.
