What Makes A Fad Turn Rad?

Have you ever saw something so dumb that someone gave a hum, then weeks later it was an in thing and all were giving it a ring? Yeah, I think we have all been there. So what makes it a fad at ones lair? Answers, anyone? I guess we will have to see under my sun.

You'd think your chain I'd be yanking,
If I said it was an in thing to be Planking.
What a moronic thing to do.
Some humans really have no friggin clue.

And why bother courting?
Just kill yourself with Condom Snorting.
That sounds oh so fun.
It should be done by no one.

This one deserves some plugging,
It is called Butt Chugging.
Stick a hose or tube up your ass,
And chug the liquor in mass.

The Cinnamon Challenge is the best.
It beats all the rest.
Put a spoon full in your mouth,
And let your lungs die as it heads south.

This one is always lurking,
Shake your alcohol filled ass with Twerking.
At least a drunk ass explains it.
How did such a thing ever become a hit?

Then some are not all super bad,
Like owls at every pad.
Who the heck decided owls were in?
I guess this year owls win.

Zombies here, there and everywhere.
They are at every lair.
They are in everything.
What next? They will sing?

Those pictures on the back of cars.
That shout out to all from here to Mars,
I have this many family members, here look!
Who really cares at ones nook?

Then there is saggy pants.
Are they looking for underwear chants?
Look at you with your pants on your knees.
I bet you sure feel a cold breeze.

And one for the ages,
A good paper weight for pages,
My pet rock.
What next? My pet sock?

From the strange to the stranger that could spell danger, you humans are a weird lot. No wonder you are hunted by a Terminator robot. I wonder if the alcohol one makes it hard to pass gas? Wait! That would be too much information for my little rhyming ass.

Experience spring, have a fling.

  2. Given the choice from above I'll settle for a rock
    It serves a purpose does not talk back or mock
    Fad or not
    In with the lot
    Fashionable with the Jones and in with the crowd

      Then when done, biff it at a tree

  3. owls are cool though, wise ones as the night winds blow,
    i'd take them over twerking, which can get freaking disgusting
    esp when in the middle age crowd, make you want to disavow
    being human, or rub your eyes with cumin

  13. Head hung low...
    My daughter went through a planking phase, has a pet rock, and unfortunately is pretty darn good at that stupid twerking.

    Head hung lower, I have the people on my window...and I love them.

    I don't like zombies though, nor will I ever engage in some of the other fads aforementioned, so hopefully there is some hope left for me. :)

  16. A guy here on 14ers did plank;
    Whatever suits your bank.
    Cinnamon I like a lot
    But not enough to drown my snot.
    Owls are the cutest little birds I see
    Whether toy or real, they bring such glee.
    A Trekkie family put their numbers on their car
    All displaying Spock's hand ajar.
    Some fads are awesome fun,
    But others are just downright dumb.

  21. I'm pretending I didn't read some of this post
    Those one with asses and liquid are way too gross
    You're right on the money, cat
    Humans are weird and sick beasts at that.
    When it comes to trends, we're just plain dumb
    I say this while snorting a Trojan condom.
    But only because I have no other use for it
    And it's about to expire
    So why not get my fix?

  22. I've never seen anyone snort a condom, but we both had some very stupid friends in high school that tried snorting crushed caffeine to see if it would help them win swim meets. Not only did they crash and burn, but they also got caught. We did not go to school with very smart people...

    But very remiss I have become
    As I hide in my space where today there is no sun

    You birthday it seems I did miss this year
    although in attendance I was without any cheer
    It appears to have been a special day
    With posts meeting stats at your bay

    BUT I'm back and I'm here and I'm ready
    During your A to Z I will be steady
    Better make those posts good and funny
    While we're waiting for the Ester Bunny
