No You’re Fucking Not

Okay, I need to vent for a minute here about the ubiquitous use lately of the word “humbled” in posts all over the place about various awards/honors/interviews/press/accolades/handjobs that people have received and want to promote and/or link to. Shorter: you’re not. I don’t think that word means what you think it means. Have you been humiliated, chagrined, or brought low before your peers? No? Then shut the fuck up with your humblebragging. See below for a list of words you should use in its stead:

thrilled

elated

overjoyed

grateful

gratified

excited

shiny

tickled

titillated

ebullient

over the moon

stoked

beyond stoked*

chuffed

dead chuffed

psyched

damp

moist

sopping

aroused

quarter-chubby

half-hard

fully engorged

a human jizz tsunami

it’s okay, it happens to lots of guys

 

Thank you for your cooperation.

    Excellent. I also hate bloggers who retweet a compliment or any praise type comment they have been given. It really grinds my gears.

    I also hate “awesome.” So over and incorrectly used. Not humble bragging but annoying as hell.
