The emos will kill you…………with terrible poetry

Utah ABC station discovers Emo.

What’s really funny about this clip (besides the humor you get when 30-50 year olds try to explain youth (sub)culture) is that some of the videos and “am I emo” type quiz they reference are satire.

I have a tip for TV news stations: Don’t try to explain something by getting your information from the Internets. The Internets are 90% satire, 5% snarky and 5% porn. You just end up looking old, out of touch and an advertiser-fellating fear monger.

Oh, and Utah, this just in, there were musical groups in the 80’s that wore dark clothing, mascara, and wrote depressing lyrics.
