Y is for YouTube


So, this post is basically all about how YouTube ruined my life. Since the invention of this satanic website, I’ve developed an unhealthy addiction to talking animals and toddlers getting clotheslined by large objects. Instead of writing that 20 page paper that’s due in 14 hours, I procrasturbate to delightful, baby puppies. Anyway, to explain my point further, let me convey it to you in the form of a song a poem this cluster of words that kind of rhyme with each other.

I held dreams and aspirations,
Hard to tell as I work in a cube.
Forgotten plans to conquer nations,
Since the invention of YouTube.

Sits my manuscript, barely started,
What I have, critics will mock,
All because my insight’s departed,
To make room for talking livestock.


Furthermore, I do confess,
Writing is hard to focus on.
With my room, a constant mess,
And watching a guy obsessed with Tron.


I love to write, don’t get me wrong,
For this craft, I believe I was born.
Although, I type like Donkey Kong,
Because of Charlie the Unicorn.


I suck at poetry; it’s not my forte,
It all can be cured if I study lots.
Instead, I tend to waste the day,
By listening to this guy talk about knots.


I’m ending the poem here,
Because I’m busy today.
You get the picture,
Now go treat yourself to some beer or something.

P.S. Sorry, I got to run now. I will read everyone's' blogs tomorrow. Don't think I am ignoring you.

    This was awesome. My husband sits and watched youtube all the time too. Right now he's obsessed with videos of people eating ghost peppers.

    Charlie the unicorn sounds like the guy from Bob's Burgers.

    1. I've never seen that show, but I heard it was funny, so I'll have to check it out. As for the ghost pepper videos, I'm going to watch one right now.

      *UPDATE* I am now addicted.

    1. Bah, it's a curse, and unfortunately I heard that word from another source; so it's not exactly mine to patent.

  3. Good poem. Luckily I don't have an addiction to You-Tube.
    Booze and crack? Yes.
    You-Tube? No.

    1. Pure gold. Every episode. You should watch Llamas in Hats, too. I think you'd enjoy it. It's made by the same guy.

  8. I am in love with the dark side of youtube. That little corner full of dust bunnies, Christian Fundamentalists, and unicorn sightings. I view one Hitler speech video, and next thing I know, I am watching an elf interrupting a soccer game in Brazil.

    1. Whenever it's one of my friend's birthdays. I scour the dark side of youtube and uncover the strangest and creepiest video to greet them with.

  9. I almost wrote about YouTube too. At least your videos are more varied, as mine would have just been clips of marble hornets. Good job.

  11. Good post. I try not to get on YouTube unless I'm looking for something specific because once I start, I see something else to look at and then something else interesting and then something else I got to see and well you get the picture. Half my day is gone before I know it. I'm going over now and checking out Ghost Peppers because I want to know WTH they are, lol.
    Have a wonderful day!!!
    Ciao

    1. You get quite the interesting reactions in the ghost pepper videos. I will never eat one. My stomach can't even handle jalepenos anymore.

      Delete
    2. That video was epic. I laughed till I cried. I can't handle jalepenos either and would NEVER attempt ghost peppers. Too much pain me.

      Delete
    3. I love jalepenos. Unfortunately, my stomach has recently decided not to like them anymore. I'll spare you the details as they are not pretty.

  14. I think Procrasturbate is my new favourite word. Also, I love Charlie the Unicorn and I could have fun on Youtube for hours, especially when there's something that needs doing!

    1. Exactly. Sometimes I'll reward myself with 2 videos midway through a paper. However, those 2 videos usually evolve into 30 or so somehow.

      Delete
  15. Fun fact: If I actually counted the total number of hours I spent on Youtube, in my lifetime, I'd probably kill myself.

    1. I think I've spent more hours on YouTube than I've spent being alive.
