I post a benign comment, you fake offense to it and then post your own.


Inspired by a video I saw where some millennials were offended by just about everything they said to each other while on a date.

The game is simple.

I'll post the first benign, purposely unoffensive comment and you make up some reason to be offended by that comment. Hyperbole and sarcasm a necessity.
(Be sure to quote the comment in your response.)

Then post your own benign comment, etc.

Example:
I drove the speed limit all the way to work today.

Next Poster:
Quote:
I drove the speed limit all the way to work today.
Thanks a lot F***er, I was the guy stuck behind you while everyone else in the left lane was going 20 over! Couldn't pass you, was late for work. Again.


First comment;

Can't wait for spring to get here, it's been so cold lately.

Yeah, right. When the warm weather gets here, I have to dig out my warm weather clothes and replace anything that doesn't fit anymore. And winter clothes add bulk. so people think that extra weight is clothes, not you. Now I have to diet AND get new clothes.

This cup of coffee really hits the spot.

Great just what the world needs - another freak probably extolling the virtues of cat poop coffee!

I just found a $100 bill! I should rush down to the gospel mission and donate it to some needy soul.

Do you have any idea what the carbon footprint of a Broadway show is?
I heard it was the equivalent of 63 Jumbo 747's flying to the moon and back.

I'm looking out the office window and it's actually snowing out.

How horrendous! Don't you know that victims of sex trafficking never have weekends to enjoy?

I made a Caesar salad and it was delicious.

"Regards"? Is that some kind of passive-aggressive bullshit signoff or what?

I hate people who learn new words and just try to put them in a conversation. They sound so stupid.

My puppy smells so nice, I just picked her up from the groomer.

How dare you enslave another creature for your own enjoyment? Set it free, you monster!

I had a tasty glass of bock beer.

Beer... do you know how many carbs are in that beer? I have a grain allergy! You people make me sick. Really. Physically sick.

Isn't it wonderful to see the beautiful spring flowers in bloom?

Jesus, haven't you heard of trigger warnings? I have a pollen allergy! With your grain allergy, you really should know better.

I plan to spend Sunday morning watching Paris-Roubaix.

How nice for you. You get to lay in bed and watch sports. Some of us have to get up and work for a living!

Did you hear they've discovered a way to cure dementia in the elderly?

Of course! They cured it years ago, but Big Pharma makes more money ripping off confused old people for the Medicare benefits.

Hitler seems like he had some pretty sensible ideas, I think he gets a bad rap.

"Bad rap"? That's cultural appropriation! What are you - Bruno Mars?

I think there is too much divisiveness in our political discourse.

I don't know what planet you're living on, but from where I sit we call it the "United" States for a reason.

We're still going to Disneyland.

Pix...? Are you referring to Pixels? As in your shitty camera and it's heavily pixelated photos? No thanks.

I don't think Tiger will win the Masters this year.

If he was a white drug-abusing philanderer who can't play golf any more you wouldn't say that.

Yup, and I'm having a nostalgic session of "sharp stick to the eye".

Do you know there's over 50,000 shades of white?

Flowers!? People are starving and you're looking at pretty flowers. You should be growing wheat and rice. Selfish.

I think I'll barbecue some ribs for dinner.

Don't you know how much air pollution barbecuing causes? You should eat raw food only.

I'm going to walk my dog.

All the money I'm sure you spend on dog food could feed dozens of starving children in Africa instead. I hope you're ashamed of yourself.

So what kind of off-shore trickery and loopholes are you going to use with your expensive 1% fancy-pants accountant?

Man, you're some tight-assed clean freak. Probably the uncreative type who felt she had to stay within all the borders in coloring books.
