I hope You feel good about yourself now

By now, you’ve heard that You are Time magazine’s Person of the Year. If You in any way participated in blogging, YouTube or the downspiraling privy chute of attention whoring and terrible hardcore bands known as MySpace, you apparently deserve veneration in a widely read news magazine. And what better way to win a popularity contest than by beating people no one likes, like Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and Kim Jong-il? Time’s Richard Stengel explains the lame cop-out by saying “it literally reflects the idea that you, not us, are transforming the information age.” Of course, they hate You for it. Their subscriptions are dwindling because so much of Your Internet content is free and beyond the realm of fact checking and punctuation. They also don’t surf the Net enough to realize that most of it is nothing but conspiracy theories and men who dress up like babies. So, enjoy Your accomplishment. Congratulations on being the cream of the crap.
