Every once in a while, quick and fun little Internet diversions appear virtually out of nowhere. Whether, it’s FarmVille, MafiaWars, or the always elusive “Somebody just answered a question about you!”, they become a constant bellowing from nearly everyone. Then, in many cases, poof! They’re gone.
Please let this happen with the “What (blank) am I ?” phase.
Most of these annoying surveys originate from Buzzfeed. Basically, Buzzfeed is the Bleacher Report of the Pop/Culture world with nettlesome and nonessential lists of anything and everything. How could we possibly live without the age-old conversation involving the “18 Reasons Miley Cyrus Should Be Wearing Synthetic Dog Hair in 2017”?
Let’s get this straight. You are not a sandwich, nor a state, nor an animal. Like the Elephant Man proclaimed, you are “a human being!”.
I know some of are you are saying, “Jeez, Brian. Get a grip. It’s a stupid quiz. Haven’t you heard of fun?”. Yes, I’m aware of this “fun” concept, but when everyone latches on to a ridiculous host of nonsense at the same time, “fun” is non-existent. Idiocy rules supreme.
Contrary to many people’s thoughts, these quizzes are not actually scientific. And, telling someone what kind of ice cream sundae you are at a party will not make you seem the least bit humorous. In fact, I would probably slowly back away and pretend to check my phone.
So, please people. Think twice before filling out the next quizzical hypothetical transformation. I don’t hate you. But, if you tell me what kind of vegetable you are, I will.
