The Year YOLO Ruined Everything
Never has an acronym spread faster or been more infuriating. Thanks, Drake!
In 2012, America's youth finally learned that we only live once.
So people got a little reckless...
And your dad decided a boat was more important than your college fund.
And finally decided to eat more catfish.
Because fuck it! You didn't even like that sandwich.
And you want everyone to know it!
So you wrote YOLO directly in your car's blind spot.
Then you got serious and bought a vanity license plate.
Then Drake came on the radio and you decided to get a custom paint job.
Then it started to get out of control.
Swaggy H.S. bros made it their mission statement.
YOLO started popping up everywhere.
Even when it didn't make sense.
The national nightmare seemed to gain momentum.
Religion decided to get in on the fun.
People didn't realize Jesus lived twice.
Facebook vacation photos...
It was a poop stain on the English language.
And it needs to go away forever.
