Rant mode on:

I've been reading various areas of Arfcom all day, in between work and going about my day. And I swear, no fewer than 10 or 12 times today alone, I ran into someone claiming that they "lost their guns in a tragic boating accident."

Now, what's really annoying is that each time this is stated, the person doing so acts like they're the first one to ever declare such a thing! The context in these posts suggests that the people parroting this cliche are really proud of how clever they are to have said such a thing. As if the exact same sentiment hasn't been repeated - word for word - about 5,000 times in the last month alone.

Ok guys, got it. We know that no one is going to get your guns because you "lost them in a tragic boating accident." If you must parrot this overused cliche, please, PLEASE stop acting as if you're the first one to ever think of it.

Ok, I feel better. Rant mode off.

Negative 10 score for that rant. It is just that, a cliche. Meant to be humorous. If you don't find it to be so, use your mouse to move on. I have never used it, but it is a damn good story if ever needed.

Yeah, and it is humorous...the first couple of times you hear it.

The 215th time? Not so much.

How many times did you proofread that to make sure you didn't mess up anything?

EAT: I would have said "mess anything up", but I didn't want to split any infinitives or anything.

See, the thing is, there are so many people in the world, and most of them don't stop by here. So the phrase continues to be of great efficacy among the general population. And if any of my acquaintances are ever questioned, they only have to say one thing . . . It's so much simpler this way.

eta: rant 2/10 cuz you forgot these:

tag
ibtl
in on x

etcetera

and you failed to provide a statistical chart backing up your claim ( that would be the 'pics' part ) with actual analysis. Anybody can throw numbers around, but if you're going to say something like that, you should have some data to prove that you are right.

I see.
Perhaps you could go back to one of the posts you are complaining about, copy some of the context you are referring to, and paste it here so we can all see how easy it is to discern the way the original poster was acting as if they are the first one to ever use the offending phrase.
