Blogshit insane: Italicize me
I dunno where you all get your gaming info from cause it definitely aint here, but the pandemic known as snark has birthed an unholy offspring.
Chances are that wherever you get your gaming news these days, somebody there’s gonna be italicizing some shit. I really don’t know when this trend started, but it was at some point in the 2000’s. Bloggers more often than not try to replicate in text that The Office/Family Guy/Justin Long(the Mac guy from the Mac vs PC ads) type of humor that‘s so darn popular now, and they go about this by italicizing the hell out of any and all words they think it beseeches. Don’t get me wrong, i partake in some italics every once in a blue, but these kids take it past the limit then proceed to gang-rape it. Every hint of sarcasm is no longer a hint, because we must now give it away by trying to add the tone of speaking it, thereby effectively removing the feeling of getting the joke, which is the magic of sarcasm to begin with.
Now i’m going to read through this originally unitalicized post and italicize words, possibly even single letters and arbitrary highlights of text, randomly. Willy-nilly, even. For i am a blogger, and that is my duty — to be an unoriginal, uncreative, contrived ball-swinger. Read with the emphases in mind for added effect. Check how the letters lean and fall on each other like a game of trust when in italics.
