Critical Irony Failure · 5:03am
So I was just having a chat with a friend, who for the purposes of this conversation I will represent as Cloud Kicker, because his life philosophy mostly revolves around winning. Chat log has been slightly edited to preserve privacy.
I just got some super good news. Turns out the company owes me more back pay than I thought. I'm getting a bonus!
You should buy some really nice shoes.
I'm not spending my entire bonus on shoes. It's a lot of money. I should invest it for the future.
If you buy the right shoes, they are an investment. Their value will appreciate!
So by your logic, if I buy a set of solid gold shoes, and that turns out to be a bad investment and I lose all my money, that's my fault because I didn't buy the right shoes.
At least you'll be prepared to jump off a bridge.
That got dark, man. You're dark.
I'm just saying. Gold Shoes: Shiny and Efficient!
You feeling okay?
I'm feeling sad because my black comedy didn't earn enough critical acclaim to validate my existence.
Man, I totally get that.
You want to, like, go watch cartoon horses and then cry?
...I was joking.
...so was I.
