I have been caught by some of the "headlines" from the satirical website The Onion . They are usually well-done, witty and really do catch you doing a double take
But the Onion reached a new low in internet blogging when they referred to Beasts of the Southern Wild's child star, 9 year old Quvenzhan Wallis as a cunt. She's 9 years old. Some one - perhaps a 18 year old drunken college student - decided that this was an easy thing to do to make other 18 year old college students laugh.
I have to admit I turned the Oscars off before the opening monologue was done due to the sophmoric comments made by the 'host' Seth McFarlane. Then I realized that this person is responsible for the show "family guy" or whatever it's real name is. I watched the program once. It's sophmoric. It's the first word I come up with. Most older people (i.e. over 50) don't get into this kind of humor. It's so ......... teenaged, 20-something. I can't identify with it.
Stooping to calling a 9 year old girl a cunt is the lowest of low.
Sure they "apologized" for it. But they really didn't mean it. To them it was funny.
Glad I'm not them.
