and taboo the damn word “status” as nobody ever uses it in a sensible way.
“you’re just mocking this because it’s low status!”
yeah it’s low status, because it’s fucking terrible
Okay, but “you are mocking this only because you saw other people mocking this, and not because you have independently evaluated its worth” is a legitimate point. Like, shitloads of people mock things that they know nothing about, and “low status” along with “has outgroup markers” seem like appropriate ways to describe what’s going on.
I commit to independently evaluating the worth of everything I mock, and ensuring that I remain personally lower status than whatever it is I’m mocking, to ensure that you can take my snark with the seriousness that it deserves.
See, this is a trap. Of course, committing to remaining low-status is the only laudable thing for a low-status person to do. But asking for credit for doing so? Sorry, that’s a blatant attempt to raise your status, for which the just punishment is more mockery.
see, I’ve embarrassed myself in public already!
I would say that if you’ve never embarrassed yourself in public, you’re not posting enough, but you clearly do not suffer from not posting enough.
keep mocking! your accurate and pointed snark only fuels my lack of status!
Now you’re making it kind of creepy. I was hoping for more of a “frenemies” thing.
(Can I still say “frenemies”? Is that too dated now?)
be careful, while continuing this interaction makes me look creepy and weird, if it goes on too long and you continue to respond we both look low status!
I’m kinkshaming both of you. Unless you’re into that. In which case, wanna join my harem? All i require is a 24/7 exchange of memes and total control of your twitter account for a week.
It’ll do wonders for lowering your status and raising mine, so we’ll all win.
have I not already been providing 24/7 exchange of memes for free over the past four slutty, slutty years
No, I meant good memes.
