The Internet Fucking Hates Jeff Foxworthy's Very Lame Participation Trophy "Joke"

 

I hate blogging shit like this but I had to. I've had this blog in draft's all day but didn't know what to write. It's just...so annoying. I think that's the best way to put it. Old people who throw around the phrase "participation trophy" about my generation are pound for pound the dumbest people in the world. Why? Because who the fuck do they think were buying all of those "participation trophies". Do they think us, the 10 year olds playing little league, were using our 3 dollars a week allowance to buy each other trophies? No, you morons. IT WAS YOUR GENERATION BUYING THEM FOR US!!!! And finally, FINALLY, people are coming around to how fucking stupid politicians, so-called "comedians", and Twitter hardos sound when they say our generation is soft because of participation trophies. We didn't ask for 'em. We wanted participation Capri Suns and participation orange slices.

I'll say this- at the end of every little league or youth soccer season, we got some sort of plaque or trophy that said our team name and year on it. I never once, NEVER, thought they were saying "good job" by it. I thought it was just kind of a nice gesture to commemorate the season with your friends. I mean we were 10 years old and having fun. I can't even remember if my little league teams won or not. Could not tell you. But my life changed exactly 0.0% because I got a little gold figure at the end of the year at the pizza party. The coach would congratulate us all on the season and we'd drink Coca-Cola until we threw up. The idea of "participation trophies" making any sort of difference in any of our lives is so asinine. And dollars to donuts, I'm positive Jeff Foxworthy has gotten some things in his life he doesn't "deserve", such as a Netflix special in the year 2022.

Also, it's funny to think that he fully believes that joke is funny. Or original. Also, you don't have to finish in first to win awards. They give 3 medals out at the Olympics. 

Anyway, I'm glad the internet has fucking turned on this entire concept. 

Other things that need to die from the Internet:

Saying "nice" any time a team has 69 points. Welcome to 2015, you losers.

"You win the internet for today". Fucking gross, shut up.

"Florida Man". Those blogs crushed in 2014 though.

"Fur baby". BLECH.

"Adulting". Even typing that made me want to put a bullet in my skull.

There's probably more but that was off the top of my head. 

Glad I got this off my chest.
