So the talking heads in my TeeWee this morning were all a-flutter and in full hand-wringing mode over a report that more teens were using e-cigarettes.
Would you prefer they were using the real thing, Ms. "Journalist"?
You know, today's kids have something we didn't have: A mass communication system capable of taking things viral in no time flat. They need to take advantage of this fact and use it to prank the media.
High school kids should start posting videos of themselves snorting water.
Come up with a catchy slang term for it, like "getting damp". Tweet things like "anybody know where u can get good #damp in this town?"
Get it going viral, and wait to see how long it takes for an op ed column to call for banning the sale of water to minors.
Because you know they would. I think it's because these %$#@ers lie awake at night in a sweaty worry that they're not "hip" and "edgy" anymore, and so they want to ban anything people younger than them are doing to have a good time. If anybody deserved to have their career short-sheeted, it's these fun leeches.
