I’ve been writing this blog for nearly 5 years now and up to this point, it’s been pretty G-rated. I’m going to move that up to PG, by getting a few F-bombs out there. It seems to be the right time for a couple of reasons.
Last week, Jonathan from My Money Blog caught my eye with his post about F@#% you money. It was a great article about how when you have enough money, you can tell your employer to “F@#% you.” Plus it featured the unlikely combination of Dilbert and Humphrey Bogart. I’ve had a taste of this experience over the last couple of years. Income from blogging and other websites has created a stream of income that effectively serves as an emergency fund or pension. Maybe that’s better called, “Go shove it money”, rather than “F@#% you” money.
F@#% you gas prices and iPads
While on the subject of declaring a “F@#% you”, I had a conversation with my wife this weekend. (No there were no F-bombs dropped.) We noted that the news in Silicon Valley couldn’t seem to get off of two topics:
- The escalating gas prices and people’s complaints about them.
- the release of the iPad 2 and people’s elation over very minimal changes. I invite you to check out the hilarious Conan parody that includes a censored “F@#% off” to keep with the theme of the day.
It’s an interesting dichotomy. I realize that the people complaining about gas may not have iPads. People having iPads might not be the people complaining about gas. However, there are a couple of times in our daily lives where we’ve seen it be that same person. My wife pulled out a pen and paper and put together a little parody.
To the tune of “F you” by Cee Lo Green:
I see you tweeting from your Macbook ’bout the price of gas, and I say “F@#% you”
You say that 4 bucks a gallon is just too much, and I say ‘F’ you
You say “I have no money” well isn’t that funny,
well that some S#*! (that some S#*!)
I see your Gucci purse and I just have to curse, and say “F@#% you”
Well I don’t feel bad, you own and Ipad and you’re in line for Ipad 2
You have and ipod and an iPhone, hey you can play music on both them.
Well can’t see-hee, you own an SUV, and it’s a gas guzzler, a gas guzzler
Whoo-Hoo you say you just can’t pay
Hey go sell your S#*! on Ebay!
