You Know I'm Out of Practice When I Start Picking on Teenagers

I'm not the type of person who likes to join clubs. I also don't use the phrase "join the club" if I can help it. And under normal circumstances, I would not disparage a young person's dreams. On this occasion, however, I feel I have no choice. I will not join the No Cussing Club.

I will give credit to the youngster who started the NCC on the grounds that he has taken initiative and accomplished something he set his mind to and I am basically lazy as fuck. Part of the problem, of course, is that he could never abide that compliment.

But the main problem (this time) is that the website is horrible, and it's not a problem specific to the NCC. You know what other club I'll never join also has a terribly designed website? The KKK.

I'm not saying that racism and not cussing are anywhere near the same level. While I would not be a part of either group due to their respective content, I would also not want to associate with them on aesthetic grounds.

There's nothing particularly profound I intend to say regarding this, because, again, lazy. I simply find it interesting that the aesthetic appeal of a group's website precludes my even considering joining. It's the same reason I always want to get into the band Fugazi. I know next to nothing about them, but I love their album covers.

So the point of this post is, don't make things that look like shit. Also, I probably won't stop cussing.
