This will get me a bunch of hate tweets and/or ruin my art career.
But I can’t hold this back ANY LONGER.
For the last two days I have sat quietly fuming while my twitterfeed is bombarded with cryptic messages from Yoko Ono. A few of them were in languages I understand, so eventually I deciphered the slogan IMAGINE PEACE.
AND she apparently has a tradition of taking out a full page ad in the New York Times with the same message. That’s all idealistic and noble and good. So I kept my mouth shut.
But now she’s doing it again TODAY, AND she is retweeting endless fawning messages from her fans saying the same thing.
It’s like being nagged by your mom over and over:
“Did you pick up your socks? Did you IMAGINE WORLD PEACE? Did you wash the dishes? Did you IMAGINE WORLD PEACE? Did you take out the trash? Did you IMAGINE WORLD PEACE?”
I’m a puppy kicking monster who doesn’t deserve to live for pointing out how annoying this behavior is, and I am about to become the most hated person on the internet for suggesting that Yoko should put a sock in it.
Doesn’t everybody want world peace?
Sure we do, but nagging us about it won’t make it happen.
Hey! Yoko! You can’t SPAM your way to world peace!
A clogged twitterfeed does not make me IMAGINE PEACE. It makes me want to start a global thermonuclear war. And punch random strangers in the face while I wait for the first missiles to strike.
You might be thinking, “why don’t you just unfollow her instead of ranting about this on your blog?” The answer is, because I’m irritated as fuck and not thinking rationally. Also, because most of my friends follow her too and retweet whatever she tweets! THERE IS NO ESCAPE FROM YOKO!
Now you know I’m evil and you won’t love me any more.
The art in this photo is by Nika Radic, a Croatian artist who will probably beat me up after reading this.
Thank you for laughing! I feel so validated.
hahaha! I love the picture that complements your emotion towards a person who wants world peace..
And I know that the thumb up doesn’t mean “great”, lol.
I know. I’m a monster.
Perfect! Having read this and your bit on Hugh MacLeod, you might want to follow @gapingvoid on Twitter … you might enjoy his pull-no-punches tweets.
Thanks for stopping by. I did follow him for a while.
