Every time I hear a stupid top 40 song on the radio about “just be yourself” it makes me want to hang myself.
If “just be yourself” were true, women wouldn’t wear a scrape of makeup. Men wouldn’t shave, bathe or bother to work off that beer gut. Everyone would drive a crappy dented car and live in a house that hasn’t had a fresh coat of paint in 50 years. Everyone would have bad breath. No one would say ‘please’ or ‘thank you’ and everyone would be rude, tactless, racist A*holes sitting around in their underwear jerking off to porn.
And yet, “just be yourself” is one of the most popular, celebrated and lucrative slogans ever uttered by any fancy-dressed, surgically-enhanced, photoshopped, auto-tuned pop singer out there.
To hell with “just be yourself.” How about we get real and say “just KILL yourself.”
