Global Impotent-Old-Man-Rage Levels Rise By 3 Metres After Thunberg Named Person Of The Year

Lake Petrolhead is already threatening to flood its pants.

Like a tsunami of fetid masculinity washing over the beachhead of bare minimum progress, old man rage levels crested at record highs today, following the news that Greta Thunberg has been named Time magazine’s Person (Who Owned All Of The Blatantly Backwards Asses) Of The Year.

“Other than coalescing support around a movement to save the planet, then backing it up by sailing across an ocean twice, initiating rallies of astonishing size and fervour in most of the world’s largest cities, and inspiring an entire generation of young people to take action on climate change, what on Earth has that young lady done to deserve Person of the Year?” screamed an extremely triggered guy, as he rapidly flooded his own basement with ineffective anger.

“Not like Trump, who received the honour for his incredible humanitarian work to save the lap dances, and signing a bill to protect 10,000 hectares of bacon double-cheeseburgers in perpetuity. Now there’s a leader.”

Around the world, the effects of the meltdown of misdirected fury were immediately visible, as people grappled with the audacity of a young person who insisted on wanting a whole entire future.

In Canada, online comment sections were suddenly swamped with men railing against being told what to do by a teenager. This from the same group of people who had also made it abundantly clear that they would not be accepting warnings or advice from leading scientists, experts, leaders, or anyone who has been outside with any regularity in the last 20 years.

In the United States entire communities were inundated with the unasked for opinions of actual human dinosaurs; ones who had the odd, sad distinction of wilfully hastening their own extinction.

And in Australia, even as rampant forest fires reduced the air quality levels in Sydney to that of Uranus, many proud blokes took to mansplaining how Greta Thunberg *cough* doesn’t know shit *cough, cough* about the science behind all of this climate change stuff *collapses in the middle of the street*.

For her part, Greta Thunberg remained her typical focussed self, saying that she would likely decline the magazine’s award, “As there is now quite literally no Time left.”

  1. As a person that actually fits the definition or “old man” but unfortunately has been out side regularly for even more than the last 20 years all I can say is that you hit this really on the head.

  2. So it’s working, the more outrage the more the message she carries spreads. Don’t kill the messenger unless you want to have blood stained clothes.

  3. Isn’t that bullying. Sorry, it’s against old white guys so it doesn’t count. I don’t care either way, but I thought left wingnuts were against bullying and discrimination. Oh yeah, it’s against old white guys so it doesn’t count.

      I realize you’re an elderly gentleman and that your brain doesn’t work quite like it used to, but sometimes you have to bully and discriminate against people who are already bullying and discriminating in order to prevent those people from making a society that bullies and discriminates.

      For someone who doesn’t care you seem pretty fixated on the feelings of old white guys. I thought you guys weren’t supposed to be hurt by petty things like words? Maybe you should follow your own advice and “man up”?

  4. This is actually very offensive. I’m sure it is intended to be funny and provocative, but if you turned this around and made the same comment about, say, young fertile brown women… I can just image the storm. Get a grip. Offensiveness has no place, period.
    For the record: Go Greta!

  5. This is not offensive enough. Most old white dudes (and I’m one of that group) have shit all over our chance to keep people alive on this planet and refuse to make the smallest of changes. Fuck them and the SUV they rode in on. Despite it’s lack of offense — it is funny. Well done, Paul.

  6. If only the intended audience, could #1 recognize this is describing them, #2 accept criticism or #3 care enough to make even a slight effort at empathy, what a wonderful world it would be.
