It's the final day of 2018! As per tradition, I poke fun of the idiocies that this year had to offer!
1.Donald Trump: Oy Vey, Can You See? (Part 2)
It's year two of the Trump Presidency, and many (except for his followers) are already sick of it! From the failure to drain the swamp, to the continuing saga of screwing of the immigrants (including keeping those poor kids away from their parents), there have been no shortage of idiocy from the man who's been bankrupt 6 times and somehow still got rich!
2.Logan Paul: Hanging Out in the Suicide Forest
As the year began, we gained our first controversy due to Logan Paul acting like an ass during a trip to Japan. It culminated in Logan and his "Lo-Gang" finding a hanging corpse in the infamous Suicide Forest. After posting the video online (and making off of it, mind you!), he got called a moron for it! And what did YouTube do? Nothing but give Logan a slap on the wrist. They did take any his monetization for his videos after he tazed a dead rat; thus proving that the fucker learned nothing! And since we're on the topic of online idiocy...
3.Count Dankula Goes to Court: To Be or Nazi Be
Let's be frank here: Nazism sucks. However, the only other defense would be to mock these bastards for being the idiots that they are. However, the UK weren't laughing when Scottish YouTuber Count Dankula was busted for making Nazi jokes. The joke? He taught his pug to do the Nazi salute. The reason? To prove that his girlfriend's pug isn't as innocent as she thinks it is. When he was put to jail, many were quick to defend his right to mock a whole lot of bastards. Thankfully he's released, but many are still upset with the UK over this piece of idiocy and unneeded political correctness. Once more, #FreeDankula
. (For old time's sakes.)
4.Bill Cosby Goes to Jail: Taking Someone Else's Pudding-Pop Up the Wazoo
As Hollywood continues to burn (figuratively speaking), we have at least two of the predators in bars. Harvey Weinstein turned himself in, and we also got the official end to many people's childhoods when Bill Cosby was found guilty of the charges that were stacked against him, and will face jail time as a result. One question: as he's taking it up the ass with someone else's pudding pop, is one of the prisoner's gonna film it on the Kodak?
5.Enzo Amore Gets Fired: Bada-Boom! Realest Guy in the Unemployment Room!
Whatever your opinion on Enzo Amore might be, many were not surprised when Enzo was let go over accusations of sexual misconduct with a fan. Although it turned out to be false, Enzo couldn't let himself remain quiet, since he brought upon the world his diss track, "Phoenix". Let's just say that no self-respecting G would take him seriously after saying the words, "Consensual penis"! And in November, he snuck himself into the crowd at Survivor Series, and gets thrown out after revealing himself and doing his schtick live on air. As much as I respect Enzo for his gift of gab, I still find him to be a massive idiot who should've at least kept his mouth shut. And you can't teach that!
6.Roseanne's Tweet Deletes New Series: Thar She Blows!
Roseanne made a comeback with her show having a new season since 1997. And how does she celebrate? By blowing it as she made a joke about one of Barack Obama's former aides from his presidency. Suffice to say, her show got canned! If Roseanne would've apologized, this would've been settled under the table. Then she claimed that Ambien made her do it. ... Yeah, and I'm the Queen of Sheba. As of now, Roseanne is without a show or a career thanks to her blunder. But on the brightside: at least we got to see John Goodman on TV again.
7.The Tide-Pod Challenge: Poddy-Mouth
As RandomDCE once said, "It's official; we're raising a generation of retards!" Many morons were gulping down Tide-Pods as part of some asinine challenge online. You know, when Drake made that dumb catchphrase, "YOLO", I'm sure he didn't have this piece of stupidity in mind. And you're wondering why we've raised a generation of morons doing dumb things for fame? This was so dangerous, I doubt that the guys from Jackass would try it!
8.Colin Kaepernick Becomes Spokesperson for Nike: Just Don't Do It
Last year, we talked about Colin Kaepernick and the controversial kneeling. This year, he's a spokesperson for Nike and many have lost their ever loving minds! Many of the alt-right proved their idiocy by burning their Nike sneaks; thus wasting away a shit-ton of money. They even burned them while wearing them! If there's proof that we're devolving further down the evolutionary scale, then burning sneakers while wearing them is proof enough!
Other than these pieces of idiocies, 2018 did have some bright spots, in both pop culture and my personal life. For one, I'm able to drive now, so I'll have some more freedom for me. Plus, WWE had a mixed year. Despite them losing their respective matches, Shinsuke Nakamura and Asuka won their respective Royal Rumble matches. Oh, and the movies I saw were good too. (Sorry Random.)
So here's to another demented year once the ball drops. Salud!
