Self-deprecating humour can be charming, but we must be aware that it can often be used as a coping mechanism for people with major self-esteem issues. If someone points out their flaws in a joke, then you can almost be sure that they spend more time than is healthy, thinking about those flaws. Amirite?
You get sick and tired of people complaining about violins on TV and in video games. We should have more violins, not less. Given the popularity of guitar hero, violin hero would probably be a big hit. This is a classical instrument and we should do more to promote it, not complain about how it is affecting young people. And sax too. We need sax and violins on TV! Amirite!
It's funny to see people really missing the joke. Especially those jokes where the joker is pretending to be stupid in order to be sarcastic or ironic, and then the person who doesn't get it tries to get everyone on side, and explains the mock-mistake the joker made in a condescending way. Amirite?
People who think terrorism in America is a "new problem" seem to forget that the American revolution was won using terrorist tactics, and that since 1850's (the Know Nothings) domestic groups have consistently committed acts of terror including bombings and arson by: KKK, Sovereign Citizens, Black Panthers, Weather Underground, Animal Liberation Front, Army of God, Earth Liberation Front, Symbionese Liberation Army, Jewish Defense League, Phineas Priesthood and about 100 other Wing-nut American groups. Current hyperfocus on jihadism is perpetuated by both wing-nuts and ditto-heads to hide their own agendas. With the exception of 9/11, terror committed in the US by non-citizens is practically non-existent. The US has dealt with white-supremacists, black revolutionist, religious radicals, environmental extremists, anarchists, right-wing radicals, left-wing radicals, and a host of other home-grown nutbags. It will never stop, and branding terrorism "Islamic" is just naive.
