The Selfie of Merde


o see how people reacted to the Paris attacks I looked around the web.

Smiling vacation selfies in front of the Eiffel Tower, mindless slogans repeated over and over and nifty graphics incorporating the French flag seem to be the standard internet response. 

Nothing changed with these weak gestures of solidarity as one hundred plus people are unfortunately still dead and blood still stains the streets.

All I see are people trying to make this tragedy about themselves in some twisted narcissistic way. It's like saying I like croissants or I had French food one time at this place, I sat next to a French person one day on the train or had a French pen pal in grade school. It's very silly and self-centered
I'm sorry I'm a cynical crank I know. On with the show and I'll go sip my coffee and read my copy of Mastering the Art of French Cooking while listening to Serge Gainsbourg.
