Hey Emo You Make me Wanna Screamo

I didn't know depression was a trend.

Why the hell are kids that come from comfortable middle-class families complaining that they don't have enough?

I know your kids are likely content, but there are some out there that just don't want to be happy...OR they think that being unhappy and suicidal is cool...for now...until they make their statement.

"Emotional hardcore" or Emos for short, originated from some sort of Goth sub-culture in the late '90s.

These ungrateful, apparently misunderstood pukes, complain about how their lives are so screwed up at home and that no one understands them.  Meanwhile they are walking around texting on their cell phones, listening to death on their ipods, smoking their parents cigarettes,  streaking their hair every two weeks, and buying new tight clothes every week with their parents money.

These "highly emotional" people who complain about everyday life, sometimes threaten that they are going to off themselves. I will assume that if you're an Emo - it's just part of the culture to be a drama queen and solicit the attention.

And the clothes! Good lord! Emo guys are wearing tight women's jeans a size too small, and even adorn more make-up than the average woman. Their greasy unwashed hair is always flipped to one side covering half of their face (at an angle of course).

When you see these God awful creatures trudging down the street it’s often hard to tell which one is the girl and which one is the guy.

I don't know exactly when it ever became popular to hate life so much, or to talk about suicide and to walk around demanding a mountain of undeserved attention.  But when I grew up it was cool to be happy, to wear bright clothes and to dance your face off.

So Emos, stop taking up space on our public benches, refrain from loitering in our malls, take a shower, eat a sandwich, grab your Mac that your parents bought you last time you threatened to kill yourself and Download some WHAM...and..."Choose Life".

Then, my displaced friends, take a deep breath, fake a smile and choose to LIVE!
