The Sky is Falling
Threadless is currently hosting a “Sh*t the Internet Says” design challenge to celebrate all of the ridiculously silly terms, abbreviations and hashtags that are floating around the internet these days.
Most of my friends limit their abbreviation use to lol and rofl (thank you for that) but I do get to experience the wonderful world of hashtags on a daily basis. It makes me giggle when people use more hashtags than real words. #I #dont #understand #why #you #have #to #use #so #many #freakin #hashtags? #Cant #you #just #get #to #the #point? #ToEachHisOwn
For some bizarre reason, this challenge immediately made me think of Chicken Little. In my version of the classic fable, the poor little chicken desperately tries to warn his mother of the falling sky – but wastes so much time rambling off pointless hashtags that he gets squashed by the crushing blow of the falling sky (and confuses the heck out of his mother in the process.) It makes me giggle… which is OK because little chick and his mom don’t really get killed or maimed in any way. In their world, the sky is just a bunch of soft, puffy clouds 🙂
If you like my design, please take a second to vote for it on Threadless. I would really, really appreciate it!! Here is the link!
