The blogosphere has been hit by a humour shortage following an influx of blogs secretly funded by major corporations to boost the poor public images of companies such as Wal-Mart. Comments on social media are also becoming increasingly dry as a result of PR driven astroturfing campaigns and spam comments designed to boost the search engine rankings of commercial websites. Research indicates that the blogosphere is now 67% less humorous than it was 5 years ago and the situation is getting worse.
Mister Trippy can confirm that this blog has been inundated with astroturf and spam comments in recent weeks.
Supplies of jokes, one-liners and humorous ripostes are running low as UK based blogs attempt to ward off the cavalcade of corporate crap brought together under the aegis of the London 2012 Olympics. This week London bloggers appealed to independent media producers and the public for help.
Avant-garde pornographer and blogger Stewart Home told one of his other 665 schizophrenic multiple personalities: “The wet weather has meant we are running out of jokes. Traditionally London has an over production of humorous blogs but the continuous rain we’ve suffered over the previous three months has prevented many local bloggers from getting into the kind of social situations that might be mined for their humour.”
“It is sunny now and I’m enjoying seeing lots of people (and especially thrity-something women AKA MILF) in skimpy outfits – but the hot weather has only been with us for a couple of days and is not expected to last into the weekend.”
“The lack of opportunity to flirt and engage in other types of social banter has been a huge drain on my ability to generate fresh jokes and I am hoping people from outside London will help me make up the shortfall by leaving witty comments on my blogs; as well as by sending me examples of their home porn.”
“Donations of jokes, one-liners and humorous ripostes are gratefully appreciated and can be left as comments below this post. Women aged 21 and over can contact me through the web mail form on my site to arrange ways in which I might view their home porn.”
According to new figures released this week, Mister Trippy has seen a 52 per cent increase in the number of jokes he cracks online over the past three years. A large number of the these gags are sexual in nature and require social interaction to inspire them.
Tessie Talk (another of Mister Trippy’s multiple personalities) added: “Humour is the only sane response to an insane capitalist world – without it even more people would be cracking up..”
