“random”

Right now I am: edgy.

In the past few years, let’s say from 2004 to 2009, the word “random” has lost its meaning.

What used to be something unexpected and following no certain criteria is now a word uttered by complete morons hoping to be funny.

Is this society’s sense of humor really so bad that we have to resort to screaming “CHEESE!” or “PUDDIN POPZ!” into the crowd, hoping for a laugh? In the good old days where I sadly never lived, humor was HUMOR. It was funny! And the word random was cherished, and not used by a bunch of preteen girls who can’t bother with a dictionary.

Since I realized this, in about 2005 or 2006, I have defended being called “random”. I do not to be assosciated with your stupid “funnyness”.

Their definition and usage of the word “random” seems to just show how normal, clone-like and utterly trite they are. It’s a frantic entreaty to be cool, and it makes the user seem far, far from it.

Please, 11- and 12-year-old girls. Stop the “random”. Start the FUNNY.

  1. I understand that.

  2. I have never agreed with you more! I know people who TRY to be random. Which is a total oxymoron because random does not mean you have to THINK about being random. Ughasdadna.

  3. I couldn’t agree more. I’m surrounded by these people all day long, and it drives crazy. It may be their way to feel “unique” and funny, or get attention, but it’s just stupid. Plus, it makes the un-random ones(AKA the interesting, funny, clever, genuinely unique, fun people, a lot of the time) feel inferior. Hopefully it’ll end some day. xD
