Kickstarters Dark Side

Postby IvenBach » Wednesday August 13th, 2014 9:46pm

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/324283889/potato-salad

Potato salad that needs a kickstarter... I should start one for my own 'noseblower' and see how many backers I get. Has the interweb really gotten this bored? I'm not even going to mention our addiction to an old OOP game 25+ years old, I feel ashamed now.

Stretch goals:

$250 - Better mayonnaise (from the natural foods section)

$300 - Call a chef to get a better recipe

$350 - Make way more potato salad and probably do a third recipe.

Now, that is funny. Metafunny, hands down. Metametafunny, possibly. Though I don't even think the guy or his backers are able to think that far. Or to think.
Involuntary satire by the creator, rendered retroactively intentional by the backers who were supposed to be fraggled in their collective ass by the creator in the first place. As a B.A. in Literary & Cultural Studies, I can't even begin to describe the repercussional meaning for the state of internet, individuality vs. collectivism, and comedic media of this.
Jesus, this is a piece of satire everybody wants to be part of 30 years from now. "Remember those good ol' web 2.0 times?"
fraggle me rigid. I can die now, cause I've seen everything.

Yeah I knew about that one. It's weird. Some kind of joke, but apparently, people want to throw money at something as ridiculous as that. I'd rather buy a beer.
