I don’t know if I’m more crotchety and sensitive to it now, or if there are legitimately more stupid people on Kinja these days, but the amount of people with broken sarcasm/satire detectors just seems through the roof. From this post.

I mean honestly, it’s clear from the headline that it was satire. Unclear from just the headline whether it’s a specific review or a trend that they’re parodying, but the tags, author: Me, and link in the first fucking sentence make it pretty clear what they’re parodying.

I feel like this happens with every totally over-the-top parody piece these days. Is there an influx of children commenting or something? What’s happening?
