I just love south park and how its making fun of celebrities. What did you guys think of this episode?
If you want someone to go away - stop killing them on animated TV shows, stop talking about how much you hate them and stop making random posts about them on the internet.

If we as a society want someone to go away, we should learn to just ignore them.

Incidentally, this applies to this forum as well.

Oh wow... really? I had not thought of that. How insightful. A truly inspired piece of wisdom you have bestowed upon us.
His audience are preteen girls. Given their attention spans it's amazing he hasn't already been forgotten.

Have I offended you? If so, I apologise, though I quite honestly don't know what it is I have done.

(And if you mean that what I said was already implied in what you wrote, yes, it was. I just thought it prudent to make sure the message does carry across. Subtlety is a lost art.)

Celebrities are supposed to be unlikeable. Otherwise, they wouldn't be celebrities.

Look. I haven't watched TV in years. I don't listen to the radio, I don't give a shit about podcasts from anybody, and I get almost all of my news from suckers who actually bother to pay attention to it, since news is unavoidable if you have any level of social contact. I'm a hermit by choice. I hate people by nature.

I've heard a lot about this Bieber kid as of late. I only saw one video after months of curiosity. It was, predictably, as horrible as I'd assumed it would be. A reminder that it's never too late to have an abortion, no matter how advanced the fetus has become, even well into the adult stages. Some fancypants doctors will call it "murder", but I think society would be more accepting if we simply referred to the procedure as "late-stage abortion".

Besides that one instance and mentions by forum-goers and the like, I've managed to avoid this and hundreds of other worthless, untalented, and annoying celebrities simply by investing virtually no interest in whatever the hell is happening in the world.

I mean, it's all happened before, and it's going to happen again. Spoiled celebrities are going to lip-sync while their little dogs have diamond-studded collars and billions of people can't even make ends meet, wars are going to be fought, anybody with any level of power, whether it's the king of a country of some forum elite with thousands of karma\rep\etc, is going to be corrupt, a total dick, or what have you, and everyone will follow after somebody powerful like sheep, people will get killed, robbed, natural disasters will do this and that, and fatasses will wonder why they can't get in shape and be sedentary at the same time.

You know, we're all going to die and deal with far more bad than good in our lives. What the hell good does it do to know about how there are people infinitely worse off than you, and people who won't have to ever steal food just to survive, and have the resources to have seemingly all of life's options open to them?

It's really not worth paying attention to any of this mainstream media tripe. There are books, games, movies, music, all of life's creative pursuits are enjoyable even if you're as hopelessly untalented as I am, and with information available in both books and the internet, as long as you have enough money there is always something new you can learn to do.

It is very much possible to go without thinking about celebrities. Just stop paying attention to the world. Does the world give a flying fuck about you? No? Me neither. Trust me, being an introverted recluse has it's benefits. I say an average of one word a week in real life. I usually work night shifts when I'm working, coworkers learn quick that I'm only there to make money in our wonderful little world of modern day slavery where I have the choice of either dying or faking a smile and not fantasizing horrible, hateful things about the person at the other side of the counter, and that I'm about as interested in small talk as I am a complementary lobotomy, and I've managed to get by well enough by being eternally frugal.

I rarely ever have any idea what's going on in the world, if a celebrity forgot to breathe and died, if a hurricane killed everybody in Atlantis, if Atlantis is even still around, and I'm not even entirely sure whether that Oba-whatshisname is president yet, or if it's still that Clinton guy. For all I know, the Forbes 100 are funding a bomb that will destroy the Earth, and all the richest people in the world will escape in a 24 karat gold shuttle and live in a space colony.

Hours before the bomb hits, they'll be doing a live stream, with Donald Trump mooning the camera (which would be arguably worse than the whole "we're all going to die!" thing), Bill Gates laughing his ass off and pointing at the camera, and Oprah Winfrey recommending that everybody spends their last hour reading a book about how the space colony will be a far better place to live than the Earth ever was, and I think I'd be much happier not knowing a damn thing.

You know what, though. It's fucking great, and you'll never be happy until you learn to turn the TV off, stop caring about the news, and realize that you'll still be able to live. :)

Nice one, +1 material i think.
I really didn't get the Bieber hate. I've only seen him in a couple of magazines and videos and didn't find him hateable. Until I realized he was the Menudo phenomenon all over again in one single package and my sister is married and living in her own place, so I no longer have to listen to teen songs over and over and over and over again or look at posters of the current teen idol(s) everywhere my eyes fell on her room. Putting up with the squealing and the visiting friends also squealing about the latest song/album/picture/gossip is a thing of the past for me, so Bieber only pops up in my life during the occasional channel zapping or while browsing at magazine racks.

I finally know peace and it is GOOD. I pity the brothers of teen girls everywhere.

It's a teenage kid with a voice, a hairdo, a face the young girls adore, and a career, using what God or Mother Nature or genetics gave him to make his way in the world.



The hate all makes perfect sense now.

The fact that I have yet to hear a single song of his and I still know who he is represents a serious problem. I say we send him back to Canada with Celine Dion and try to manage.

OTOH we could send them both down to Mexico, perhaps some mafia hit men will "accidentally" hit the two when they're aiming for somebody important.

Technically, his handlers are using what God or Mother Nature or genetics gave him to make their way in the world. When he's a fizzled out has-been their careers will probably still be going strong.
