Beginning post where I talk about something I heard about on the news.
Hey! Have ya heard about this sexting thing?
"What is sexting?" you ask? To which I reply, "Are you seriously too lazy to follow the link? It's the different colored word above. If you click on it with your mouse, it will take you to another page which conveniently is about 'sexting.' No? Okay fine. Here, you lazy bastard:"
It's a portmanteau (I love this word. It's when you take two words and throw them together to create a new clever word, kind of like the title of this post - HEY, CLEVER TITLE!*) of the words texting, which is the act of sending cryptic and/or vapid messages to people over their phone, and the word sex, which if I have to explain what sex is to you then you probably don't get about 45% of the jokes on this blog anyway.
And since I don't know what sex is that probably makes 45% of this blog not funny at all.
At any rate, put the two words together and you have people taking pornographic pictures of themselves or others and then texting those pictures to someone else.
One would assume that the goal of sexting is to take pictures of your genitals and then send them to your boss and coworkers to prove your superiority (okay, I might assume) but evidently that's not the case. Some people use it to send racy pictures of themselves to members of the opposite sex! To promote sex having! Using phones!
What kind of world do we live in, am I right?
The big concern, though, is that this practice violates child pornography laws. But not in like a 'there's a thirty five year old dude taking a picture of me with his phone over the top of the bathroom stall divider' kind of way, but in a 'hormone case teenagers taking pictures of themselves and sending them to other hormone case teenagers.'
I don't know why anyone is surprised by this. Teenagers will figure out a way to hump a sofa. Give them a camera phone and LOOK OUT!
And this is where we get to the end of the post. At the end of the post, I'm supposed to tie the subject matter into some sort of argument or lesson or moral nugget about what people should or should not do. But you know what? I'm not going to do that today.
And the reason I'm not going to tie it all together is because it would dilute the purpose of this post.
"What's the purpose of this post," you ask? I'll tell you:
To make jokes about teenagers humping couches.
And if that's not enough for you, then I suggest you waste your time here.
Seriously? You're still too lazy to click the link?
