So! I was reading the news yesterday when I came across a story I found absolutely hilarious.
It was a very serious story, but I found the concept it discussed absolutely hilarious, and I made it a point to tell my friends about it.
But because they are stupid – just kidding; they’re not and I love them a lot – no one got it. Which happens quite often, so I was, like, whatever.
But this morning, I suddenly woke up and the visual image of the concept appeared in my mind, and I was like: YES!
So I immediately grabbed my phone, fired up Phoster, and designed a little graphic, which I promptly Whatsapped to my friends.
The reaction: “Hahahaha.” “This is hilarious.” “Where did you get that from?”
But when I proposed to post it online, with a disclaimer, the reaction I received instead:
It’s troublesome to enforce how people share content. It’ll just be taken out of context and someone will report you for sedition. Then you can forget about being NMP.
No. Too sensitive to post.
I disagree with making it public. There will surely be people who will take it the wrong way. If it goes public, there will be people who will over-react. Sharing it with friends is fine.
So I decided to post what you see above instead. You can like it on Instagram too:
BONUS: Responses to this graphic:
Yeah, this is much better. You’ll still be reported, but it’ll be for being dumb.
Haha! But what is the point of posting it if everything is censored?
I know right.
